We were SO excited to be notified that we've won 2014 practice round tickets in the lottery. Naturally, as Murphy's Law dictates, the practice rounds days are the ONLY days we're booked to be out of town next year (damn you Mickey Mouse and your Disney Cruise!).
My question is, if we go ahead and buy them and not use them, will that help us at all in future lotteries? More importantly, if we pass on them, will that hurt us in future lotteries?
