The machine I went to today had a $5 credit!  I went and got my carrots and went back and it was still there, so obviously someone walked away.  I went ahead and used it.  I felt bad because I would be very upset if I got home and realized I left that much in the machine -- that pays for my tickets until Saturday.

1.  If I win the jackpot, should I advertise and offer to share it with whomever can tell me how much and where they left their money?

2.  If someone in Boise wins the next jackpot, how many of you will call the lottery commission and tell them you left $5 in the machine the ticket was purchased from and you're sure the ticket was purchased with money stolen from you?

    Good ?

    I wouldn't advertise it, maybe add $5 to the machine and get $10 worth of tix ?

    Now the winner is 1/2 yours, maybe,

    then let the lottery commission figure out who left the fiver.

    Like I said, Good ?

      Big deal, someone misplaced $5 and someone else found it and spent it.  It probably happens somewhere everyday and the world goes on.

        Hey that's nothing....I used a self check out at a Food lion a couple years back I used my debit card but when I bent down to get my receipt I saw a crisp $20 bill in the cash back tray Now I hadnt asked for cash back and checked my bank account to make sure, so someone asked for $20 buck back and walked off and left it...My luck I guess
