Lost Lottery Tickets

Man says he found $1 million scratch ticket in trash

In 2005, an 83-year-old Blackstone, MA man claims he found a winning $1 million lottery ticket while routinely sifting through the throw-away tickets outside a White Hen Pantry, a local convenience store. A manager at the White Hen Pantry verified the ticket's winning status, and said that the man has gone to the store twice a day almost every day for the last few years, and he found a $1,000 winning ticket in the trash earlier in the year.

But his ticket has been disputed by a lawyer who says the ticket belongs to his client. Lottery officials did not comment, but unsigned lottery tickets are considered a "bearer instrument" (similar to bearer bonds) and can be claimed by anyone physically holding onto it.

California Man Can't Find Winning Powerball Ticket By Deadline

The California Lottery commission was aware that there was a million dollar Powerball ticket about to expire, so they made an effort to find the person who held it. They looked at the timestamp of the ticket and matched it to the video surveillance tape at the Rosemead, California store where the ticket was purchased. It showed a young man making the ticket purchase. Lottery officials then released the video to the media to prompt the ticket buyer to come forward and claim the prize before the 6-month deadline passed.

A Southern California man went to his local California Lottery office to claim his prize. However, when asked for the winning ticket, he said that he had lost the ticket. The ticket matched five out of six numbers in the drawing and won a secondary prize, but not the jackpot. A California Lottery spokesman said that they believe the man who came forward was the guy in the surveillance footage. But the Powerball rules state that a physical ticket is needed to claim any winnings, so the prize could not be paid out.

Since the prize was not claimed by the deadline, the money went to the California public schools. In the 30 years since the California Lottery began, California public schools have received more than $800 million dollars in unclaimed lottery winnings. This is the second time a California lottery ticket buyer has lost out on a prize since officials began releasing video images of winning ticket purchasers in 2012 in an attempt to find them.

Recreations are here and there played only for excitement, here and there for accomplishment or reward also. They can be played alone, in groups, or on the web; by novices or by experts.

On the off chance that we are talking scratchers hers a decent system. Try not to purchase at least 2 tickets in succession. Since the chances are 1 in each 4 and say you purchase 3. Well, your chances are you’re going to have 2 washouts without a doubt and just a single victor. So on the off chance that you need a few of a similar ticket get one from Pay To Write Research Paper. At that point, you have a possibility that they are on the whole champs.
