Woman feeding a stack of 649 tickets into the lotto machine yesterday, says to me jokingly, 'This machine is broken. It keeps telling me 'not a winning ticket'' as she checks the last one, which brings up 'Please sign. Winning ticket $50.' 'I've never won that much!' she says stunned but happy. I take her place to check the one I found in my change purse, which has to be the non-winner from last week's 60 million that I didn't discard at the time. Haven't bought any since. Machine tells me it's worth a twonie.
I may be on to something here.
