My $20.bill has been sighted once again, 6 years after leaving my hands at a lottery ticket kiosk in the mall. I often thought about it and always look for a new one to come into my hands but no more ever did. I received notification of it's whereabouts today. The last finder had written that it was worn out a year ago when sighted in Calgary, Alberta but it continued to travel and see the sights all the way back to Quebec where it started this leg of it's journey. I'm sure it has been to many places not listed and probably bought lots of things along the way. It was nice to hear this and I hope to hear more of it's travels but chances are that this will be the last I hear of my casino win back in 2010.
Now that sounds like fun. Here in the States, I sometimes get a "Where's George?" bill, but I've gotten to where I use credit cards so much anymore that I don't see money as often.
Hey Snow! Hope you're well, long time no speak. So when you found a Where's George did you follow the instructions and check it out? it's kinda cool to watch money travels. IKWYM re credit and debit cards but I still do my weekly casino run and need cash for the slots. Would have thought i'd have seen lots over the years so look at both sides of every bill but nada. Thanks for the comment! I do try to catch up to your blog maybe once a couple weeks or so. Sorry I don't comment, can never think of anything that hasn't already been said, lol!
Yes, I followed the directions on at least one. So, what is "Where's George?" called in Canada. I never go to casinos, but I don't think that even the slots take money here.
It's called "Where's Willy" in Canada. I think all slot machines take paper money now-a-days, just no coins. Then when you win it pays you with a ticket showing how much which you take to the cashier or a ticket breaking machine which are placed here and there all over the casino. You stick the ticket in the slot and out comes your exact win amount in real money including any coins rounded up to the nickle. Or alternately you can take your ticket win and stick it into another machine and play on that money. These machines also break bills; for example if you put a hundred in it out comes 5 twenties. Real handy even if you win a large amount (up to $3000. I believe) and it'll pay you in hundred dollar bills and whatever else it says your ticket is worth. But for a large win best to get paid at the cashier window because they count it out carefully for you which the machine doesn't.
