     You could use a camera to take a picture of it or videotape you and the ticket.

      What if there's a fire where you live?  Those things happen.

      Fire department is a few blocks away in my hometown. I can't take it to college though as the building constant fire alarms and small cooking fires.

        Taking videos or pictures of yourself with your winning lottery ticket means absolutely nothing to the lottery when it's time to claim. They want the original ticket presented, not copies or a video of yourself grinning ear to ear with the ticket.

            I Agree!LOL

            To noise-gate, If a criminal gets a hand on it after you have videotaped it then the pictures will support your case. Better to be safe and sign it asap.

              Definitely safe deposit box at a bank. Fire proof, behind lock and key and several layers of protection outside. Leave it there while I finish freaking out that I won, then get my ducks in a row, claim, then move to a nice house.

                    Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                    There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                          No ticket- no payout. It's that simple. You remember that guy who was videotaped buying the winning ticket in CA about a year ago.The lottery that it was him, however he could not produce the ticket & Had to walk away empty handed.
