In another topic, can't remember which one,

someone mentioned tickets that were damaged by the heat when left in the car.

I took 1 from Jersey and 1 from Delaware and placed them on the dash, 4 days later the Delaware ticket is mostly unreadable.

The Jersey ticket is OK. Always thought Jersey tix were thermal paper, now, not so sure.

        It says on the back of the ticket: Ticket(s) are heat sensitive. Do not expose to prolonged periods of excessive heat or light.

           I hope that my copier and its' light does not damage my winning ticket. I will have to plan on copying an older and losing ticket before the winner.

            The real reason Nevada doesn't have a lottery?

            Scared

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

            Lep

            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.

                If a ticket gets wet, such as when you wash your wallet, don't put your ticket in the microwave to dry it out, it will burn up. However, putting dollar bills in the microwave is okay to do.

                Been there, done that. LOL

                    The tickets were in plastic play slip holders which was probably the reason they faded. I knew the tickets were not winners, but I still won't be leaving tickets there any more.

                        I'll let the sun shine on my recently purchased lottery tickets for a bit of good luck.

                          Some lotteries will reimburse the ticket price if you mail it in.

                            This is just another reason to check your tickets soon after the drawing. Why stash it away only to either forget about it or let the sun and heat destroy it?

                            Never attempt to maintain a lifestyle you can't afford.

                              The Jersey ticket is OK. Always thought Jersey tix were thermal paper, now, not so sure.

                              You should keep your jackpot winning ticket readable in sight on the dashboard. Make circles around the winning numbers. That way gangsters can steal your car with the ticket! Also bump your head against the wall 100 times and say thank you lord!
