And if by some twist of fate you lose that ticket only to find out later that the winning ticket was purchased from the same location you bought yours?

That would be something, though I always keep my tickets safe.

I'm not talking about weeks here, the most would be one week for me

    I usually check once a month, unless the local news says a winning ticket was purchased in the local area.  Then my shoebox of tickets and reciepts comes down and is checked!

      Why buy a ticket at all?  Just save the dollar that will buy the winning ticket any time you think you're ready to win, that way you got that dollar to look at knowing it'll be ready when you are.

      When I lived in Ohio, the drawings were at 7:29 and many times I knew if the Super Lotto jackpot was hit or not before checking my tickets. 

      "you got that dollar to look at knowing it'll be ready when you are."

      I was called a degenerate gambler by a former LP member because I mentioned buying $10 or $20 worth of tickets. I suppose if they have very few dollars, waiting as long as possible to check your ticket makes sense.

        Pfft, if you don't check it's not obvious, that's the point.

        Subconsciously you know it's not a Winner, so why even bother to check at all...

          When it comes to getting paid, what you know subconsciously doesn't count it's only what can be verified with the ticket that counts.

              Exactly right: Trust but Verify!

                  If you didn't make a note of your numbers how can you subconciously know? That's a defeatist attitude.US Flag

                    maringoman, I like your avatar. More lottery balls bouncing.

                     I used the LP's Quick Pick rng and won $7.00 . It was Mega Millions. 

                    Good Luck to all LP members for tonight's Power Ball  $70,000,000.00 annuity jackpot.

                    Party
