Nice experiment.  Solution is... Don't keep them there.  LOL

I was in PA yesterday and a friend  gave me a ticket from there to repeat the experiment.

Check back later for results.

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

    The PA ticket has that warning, the Jersey and Delaware tix do not.

    I'm guessing MD tix also have it ?

       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.

      Never had a problem w/ any ticket on any copier, but yeah try it w/ loser first.

      Be sure to use a recent loser B/C of unannounced changes to paper or printing methods.

        I held a lighter about 4" below NY Lottery and CT Lottery tickets. As you can see, they were both scorched (not burned) by the heat.

        I scanned both tickets on my "all-in-one" and that did not affect the tickets in any way.

        There are no "keep away from heat" warnings on the back of either ticket.

            Yup, the PA ticket became unreadable in 1/2 the time of the DE ticket.
