So hubby went to play his numbers this evening  for Mega & he noticed a powerball ticket laying on the register. So he asked the clerk what the deal was, the clerk said it was an error. 

So hubby comes to the car and ask me for $4. I gave him the money and he came back with the mistake ticket. When he got back into the car he handed me the ticket and I noticed they were self pick. 

We will see tomorrow if it's the Golden ticketWink

    That ticket has the same chance as any other ticket. Good luck!

        I have bought mistake tickets the past but they have not been very lucky for me. Maybe they will be lucky for you.

            Out in this neck of the woods,  people give the clerk their lottery slip and then realize that they left their wallets at home or even worse being under the impression that PB is a dollar a play, they then tell the clerk" don't want it,  thought it was a buck a play.The ticket is left behind with the clerk holding the bag.
            I have noticed recently that the vendors now have a sign saying" transactions are final-in other words,  show me the money first"

            * l have bought some in the past,  but not lately.

              As a system player every line I buy is intentional, no mistakes for me unless I make out the play slip wrong.

              Good luck.

                I  always  buy   them

                 

                I  seem  to  win  more  times  on  them  than  I  loose

                 

                Had  a friend that bought  one  mistake ticket many years ago (  I met her many years after it happened )

                 

                She won quite a few million  dollars  off  it

                 

                I have always  bought  any  mistake  ticket  I  run  into  after  that

                 

                The clerks usually let you know if they have any , and/or  they will  be laying  around the counter out in the open for people to see

                 

                Clerks love to get rid of them , as usually they have to buy them if they  dont

                 

                My  friend  worked  at  the  place where  she won  that  time , and  bought the mistake ticket as she left that day from what I understand

                 

                I suppose no one else wanted  it

                 

                Which  was  another  Big   mistake     Smile
