N.M. man had jackpot-winning lottery ticket in car for 2 months

July 22, 2014, 11:02 am ET

For almost two months, Dennis Romero of Albuquerque, New Mexico, drove around town with a lottery ticket worth $385,000 in the backseat of his car. 

On Friday afternoon, Romero discovered his good fortune.  Realizing he had unchecked tickets from May, he pulled into a store parking lot, grabbed the tickets and scanned them himself using a countertop ticket checker.

"When it said, 'Claim at lottery,' I knew I had won something big," Romero said.

On his quick-pick ticket for the May 29 Roadrunner Cash drawing, Romero matched the winning numbers of 4, 10 12, 31 and 32 to land the night's jackpot of $385,000.  His ticket included two other plays that paid $1 each. 

Missouri Lottery

Seeing sales slowing, Missouri Lottery officials seek new customers

July 22, 2014, 7:13 am ET

For many years, as state revenue has fluctuated and stagnated, the Missouri Lottery has been a welcome outlier, a dependable, sometimes surging revenue stream that rarely failed to post record profits.

From 2001-2008, the lottery doubled its sales, to just shy of $1 billion, and its contribution to state education funding (where its profit is directed) reached $265 million.

Since then though, the pace has slowed. While sales have continued to tick upward, gone are the years of double-digit growth, when the introduction of new games and prizes seemed to consistently push the lottery to new heights.

Massachusetts Lottery

Some lottery winning streaks have defied belief

July 20, 2014, 3:02 pm ET

The Brudnicks may be one of the luckiest families in Massachusetts.

In just the last couple of years, Chelsea insurance agent Robert Brudnick has cashed in 140 winning Massachusetts lottery tickets worth at least $1,000 each. His 25-year-old daughter Ashley has racked up another 100 wins. And his 23-year-old son Nathan, has turned in 99 more. The total take: More than $440,000, mostly from scratch tickets.

But state lottery officials and statisticians say they doubt any family could be that fortunate. The odds of winning at least $1,000 from one of the lottery's most popular $5 scratch ticket games is 1 in 5,300. Now imagine beating those kind of odds every other day, on average, for two straight years.
