How do you redeem the lottery ticket? They give you cash or check?


I had to drive two hours one way today to my closest lottery customer center, (600$ is the maximum stores can give out here).

I was expecting it to be some big process... walked in, no one was there, except a lady behind the counter. Told her I had a winning ticket, showed her my ID/Social and she handed me a very basic form to fill out (name/address/signature) and printed me off a 1,000 dollar check. Soon as she handed it to me, she said "Oh, and I know you're not from around here, but we consistently do business with the Bank of America nextdoor, so if you need a place to cash it, they'll cash it for you!"

Within ten minutes from entering the lottery center, I was trekking my way back home with 20 crisp $50's in my wallet :D

Oh yeah, and she gave me a free t-shirt for winning too. :)

EDIT: Forgot to mention, I DID have the choice to mail in the ticket to the location, rather than drive the two hours.. but Fuck that. Says on the ticket that if it's lost in the mail, I would be held responsible and nothing could be done. So I chose to spend 40$ in gas to go make 1000$.

That's insane. The most I've won was $5...Which I wasted on another scratch off and lost. Congrats!:applause:

Thanks for the congrats guys. Yeah, lottery tickets are the biggest running scam in the US lol.. I just got lucky. I swore I'll never buy one again, as I know I'll never repeat this luck. I worked in a gas station a couple years ago, and an older man actually hit $32,000 on a ticket... but he was addicted to them so bad, it was sad. He spent at least $200 a week on them, for all the time that I worked there. Guarantee he was still in the hole, having won that much. Especially after he hit that jackpot, he'd come in and buy whole rolls of tickets afterwards. I'd say the money was gone within a month. :(

Got Nestle Latte powder things today. Caramel and Mocha. Taste okay, but I would use milk instead of water for mixing it. Tasted like flavored water rather than a latte.

Just got a nice martini shaker in the mail today. It came from Black & Mild.
I've also received about $200 in checks and Amazon credit from surveys in the last week or so.
And I know it doesn't really count, but my ISP called to let me know that they are upgrading my internet connection for free, so that's exciting.

BUT...does any one know of any donations that if you donate you get a free T-Shirt or promo item?

I received a game from GBAstar not too long ago. I played it some, and it was pretty interesting, but I haven't been able to play due to something that pulled me out of state and away from games, etc for a while.

I also got a bunch of educational dvds and a book from http://www.hhmi.org/ today! I'll check them out as I work on projects :D

I got a BO2 season pass I greatly appreciated. I thought it was a game pass. I didn't have the game so I traded it for Uncharted Dual Pack.

So Im pretty happy about that.

I won a 32 GB Google Nexus 7 from the Staples Unwrap Giveaway, but that's not coming for awhile.
I think the only thing that's come in the last month was a few different swag bags. Got some cool stuff in those, like a PvZ Wallnut hat that's keeping me warm during winter.
