I debated whether or not to blog on this but I ultimately decided that it was good advice that people should know about.
Last week I went to my local convenience store and purchased two lottery tickets, one for Powerball and one for Megamillions. When I got home I discovered that the lady that sold them to me messed up and gave me a Hot Lotto ticket instead of a Powerball ticket. I ended up matching 4 of the 6 numbers on that "mistake" ticket.
So moral of the story is that sometimes the mistake lottery tickets are blessings in disguise. I've even heard of people hitting the jackpot off of mistake tickets. Keep those mistake tickets!
