Schrodinger's Tuesday  
Tuesday is my favourite day of the working week. Lotto is drawn on Monday night, and I don't watch the draw or check my ticket afterwards, so until I come home and check my emails on Tuesday night the day is rich with promise. I could be a millionaire without even knowing; the possibility exists, right up until the moment I download my emails and realise there's no notification from Golden Casket. I put off checking until the last possible moment, just to stretch out the delicious anticipation. And I don't feel let down when I don't win; after all there's always next week. *g*

My mother has bought a single ticket in the lottery every week since it started.

When friends ask her why she bothers, she says a quid doesn't buy much anymore but this one buys daydreams. *g*

I like the way she thinks! I figure pricewise it's only a cup of coffee and a muffin each week, and not as fattening. *g*

Schrodingers Tuesday? Love it! I do the same thing, putting off checking my ticket. I'm guessing that your lottery somehow notifies you by email, or am I misunderstanding?

Here we have to get the winning numbers and just check ourselves. If you win a smaller amount, you can cash it in a the store where you bought the ticket. If it's a big winner (my heart be still) We have to travel a fair distance to the State Capital to the lotto office there...lots of hoopla to go through for the big winners. We can dream can't we? "D

Yes, we get an email if we win. Can check ourselves online or at the newsagent but I just wait for that winner's email *g*. Small wins are just deposited straight into the linked bank account; not really sure how they deal with big wins but I hope to find out one day.
