Because I always check my tickets within one or two days of the lottery drawing, I'm always amazed when I read stories like this one from the Michigan Lottery. Lottery officials say that a man from Dexter had a $1 million winning Mega Millions ticket in his wallet for eight months before he realized it was a winner.

50-year-old Edward Anderson usually only plays the lottery when the jackpot gets big so he sometimes forgets to check his tickets. He bought a ticket at the 7-11 in Melvindale for the June 21, 2016 Mega Millions drawing and put it in his wallet. He recently saw that ticket in his wallet and decided to check to see if it was a winner....and well...you know the rest of the story.
