Do you keep your old lottery tickets, or throw them away? My recommendation is to ditch them. There doesn't seem to be any use for old tickets.
But do this only after you have checked these points:
- Make sure they have been checked by the store or their machine. This is no time to wonder whether you read the numbers correctly.
- Make sure you don't have any unchecked bonus tickets. Sometimes these can look like the other tickets, so check first.
- Some stores and games hold a redraw where you put your non-winning tickets in a box to go into a further draw later. Check with your store or lottery organization before you throw them away.
Ken, I couldn't believe what a difference getting a little bit of money has done for our family. I won $100,000, left my job as apartment doorman and started a home-based business. We were always arguing about money, the cost of gas and my one-hour commute to the city each day. It was h*ll. The best thing that ever happened to me was getting that jackpot. Jim Treckil
