    I dont think they are "sorry" in AZ because the terminal says "not a winner"

            Perhaps California should adopt AZ's stance Ronnie, because the  machines out here state " Sorry- not a winner"
            Those words should be dropped,  although it would be of little comfort if you holding a batch of losing tickets.

                Perhaps they are truly happy when a big winner comes forward? Winners make the lottery look good.

                  Since I've have only taken in tickets that I first checked at home the terminal only confirm what I already know which it says "WINNER! WINNER! We have a winner!"   I'm going to take in some losers and hear what it says.

                        Because   its   a   "  Sorry  "      game    Smile

                         

                         

                        I did win 12.00  on  the PB last draw ( but took me 5.00 to  get  it  ) 

                         

                        Won  20.00 on the  Mega  Millions  not to  long  ago  ( only took me  3.00 to  get that one )

                         

                        Had  the  powerplay on the  PB  and the megaplier on the   Mega  Mlliions

                         

                        I  seldom play PB anymore ( and I seldom get the powerplay )  when  I  do    ,    and  then  only  one  ticket 

                         

                        I play the Mega Millions a little more regular.........but  small  amounts ( usually get one ticket with megaplier and  one  or  two  without )

                         

                        Pretty well  quit the PB when they  raised   the price  awhile  back........and will quit the Mega  Millions  this  Fall........when they  add  all   their   extra   numbers

                         

                        Have  had  just  about  enough  of  them  both  after  all   that

                         

                        Sorry    Smile

                          In Florida it says "You lost sucker, get over it". I don't think that's very nice. People need to write the Lottery HQ and complain.

                            I bought a ticket once as I was passing through florida. Went to check it and the machine said "Sorry Cracka girl.  You be old school!"
