According to UK newspaper The Mirror, many lottery players choose to hide their winning lotto tickets in some very strange places, sometimes misplacing them. Let’s take a look below at some of these strange places.
The Mirror reports the results of a survey into what players do to keep our lottery tickets safe.
As per the survey 7% of people said they would keep a winning ticket under their mattress, 4% hiding it in a picture frame and bizarrely 5% would keep it in their underwear!
According to a National Lottery spokesperson:-
“Winners take all sorts of precautions to keep their ticket safe before they claim a jackpot prize. We’ve heard of various strange places over the years... from keeping it in a dictionary under ‘M’ for millionaire or even in their underwear.”
According to the survey, disturbingly, only 47% of people would trust their partner to keep the ticket and 12% wouldn’t even trust their mum enough to look after the ticket. We bet that Matt Topham is one of these winners.
Let’s take a look at some of the strange places lotto winners said they have hidden their tickets:
• Down the back of the sofa
• Amongst the cat food or in the dog’s bed
• Tucked in the sun visor of their car
• One winner even kept his winning lottery ticket safely inside his secretary’s make-up bag! At least we hope it was safe.
• Stuck to the fridge with a magnet
• A shoebox in the back of the car
The number one spot on the list of strange places to hide your winning lottery ticket was: “Keeping the ticket in a garbage bag that was about to be collected”. One cannot even begin to imagine all the things that could go wrong in that scenario.
The Problem With Hiding A Lotto Ticket
The problem with some of these obscure ‘safe’ places is that people can sometimes hide their tickets so well that they forget where the hiding place is. Can you imagine anything worse than losing out on a giant lottery win because you can’t find your ticket?
