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

Congratulation to your friend Astekblue I will buy a mistake ticket from here on out lolWink

    I always do;  I just KNOW if I didn't, someone else would win with the ticket.  I don't even get annoyed about it unless the clerk says "You didn't say multiplier!" or blames it on the machine.

              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

              Do you buy mistake tickets??

              Great Question dcf: i have in the past, i'm very Lucky if they get my tickets right half the time i think these cashiers need trained better on the Lottery.LOL

              Good Luck on your tickets
