I won on my own mistake once. I put the wrong number on my playslip. When the winning number was drawn I knew I hadn't played it. But when I checked my tickets, there it was. It was for $80.

Always check your tickets, you never know...

The numbers will tell you what numbers to play. Pay attention to the numbers.

Don't just think outside the box, crush it.

    When I'm in a gambling state and I see a mistake ticket sitting on the counter I always buy them, usually the clerk is very thankful. I have yet to win on a mistake... But maybe one day.

      Me too, Hammy Wammy.  Good luck to us both!  I haven't ran across mistakes lately... until yesterday... a triplet for the Powerball... the $300 million drawing... tomorrow... "But maybe one day".  Yes, I know where you are coming from... "But maybe one day"... yep... maybe.  Maybe tomorrow is one day... Just maybe.

          That would be a great story to tell if you do win. Good luck!

          May the balls bounce in your favor!

            Thanks Travelin T!  I think I would be inclined to sponsor a one time, LP member, no purchase necessary, sweepstakes upon my win.  Operated by an independent firm of course.   Best of luck to you as well!

                There was one time I went to Walmart to buy some batteries, late in the evening. I was already having a pretty bad day, blood pressure was through the roof. Every single checkout lane was super long, so I thought to myself "F this, I'm driving down the road to Kmart". So I set the batteries down on some random shelf, got in my car, and drove down the street to Kmart. So I buy my batteries at Kmart, and noticed they had a scratch-off dispenser. I bought a $5 scratch-off and won $100. This was actually the first scratch-off I had ever bought.

                      I was in a grocery store late 1 afternoon years ago,and a woman in front of me decided she didn't want the lottery ticket she bought. Cussing Face  I said I would buy it. It paid around 70 something dollars. Banana I always look for them now.  Hurray!

                        Yes, just recently.  I went to the store to play 600 for $1 combo.  The person gave me 6000 $1 combo.  Number came out.  Won $5000.  Sweet mistake!
