Dennis Morse is a retired Navy Diver in South Mills, North Carolina, who has been collecting scratched-off lottery tickets for 15 years.
Now he has more than 250,000 used lottery tickets 30,000 of which are not duplicates and estimates his collection to be one of the biggest in the U.S.
You may be scratching your head as to why anyone would collect losing tickets but Morse gets a kick out of seeing all the variations and claims the only thing that will stop him is higher postage fees.
He says a 1991 Alaskan nature set is the most beautiful ticket but his favorite is ...the one I dont have yet the one I will win a million bucks on!
If he does win a whole lotto loot, he jokes that hell spend the winnings on a hermetically-sealed storage space for the losing tickets.
