Do you ever get excited for a second when checking your tickets?

So, I was about to check my 2 lines for the Euro draw since it was a special big draw for 80M and I check to see if anyone had won it and I see someone has so I go to grab my ticket and check and I normally check the 2 "Star" numbers first and it was 1 and 4 I look at my ticket and see 1 and 4 I was like Troll then I see the rest of my normal numbers don't match at all. Bash To rub salt in the wound you don't even get anything for matching the "Star" numbers!

 

So, has anyone else ever checked their tickets and thought for a second maybe they hit the big one?

    I get excited when I seen someone from CA won the jackpot or the 5+0 and then I go and check my ticket. That's pretty much the only time I get excited when checking my ticket. It's weird. I get more excited buying my ticket than I do checking it.

        @JoshUK, 

         

        I've always that feeling but yesterday was a big disappointment for me :-( I bought 15 tickets with my dad and sister for the Euro-millions and matched some numbers but no payout....Anyway, this year it doesn't look good for UK I think it's the 4 win so far compared to Spain who won yesterday and France, Portugal .They have atleast 25 to 30 winners together this year ....Even Switzerland  the tiny country where I'm orginally from have 4 Jackpot winners this year on the Euro ...

            Yup, those numbers never seem to match up.

             

            Hopefully they do a big draw for Christmas such as 80M Jackpot and 100 Raffle winners! Guitar

              I always check the PB # first. I've only had 1+1 or just the PB, so I haven't gotten to excited from that. I think I would begin to get excited when I see I have at least 3+1.

               

              Florida has a 4+1 that I play every draw and first thing I check is to see if its a rollover or not and if not they have the city that won the jackpot. From there I check to see if I have the +1 because its always a free ticket if nothing else. Nobody in my city has one that since 2012 so I don't get too excited, but I did have a 2+1 and  3+0 once and was cool with that, even though it only got me $65

                There's always a thrill in checking your tickets as there is always a thrill buying your tickets. It's a dream that come true for some.Dance

                        I've only been excited about it twice. The first time I played powerball and when someone in my state won the powerball jackpot earlier this year. My phone recieved an alert saying that someone in my city had won. Of course it wasn't me, but those few moments before I checked my numbers were  pure bliss.

                              No-not really. But if l read that the winning ticket was bought at a store l purchased my ticket..a little excitement would kick in.Apart from that, No.
