Full Answer

If there is an "X" on the ticket, that means the ticket is not a winner. Most lottery tickets show the winning amount and have that number written out as well. For example, if a person won $50, the lottery ticket would write out both "50" and "fifty". The letters do not necessarily need to be abbreviated in order to be written on the ticket; however, words are sometimes abbreviated for space.
