Kentucky Lottery keeps an eye on frequent winners

November 21, 2014, 10:44 am ET

In the last fiscal year, the Kentucky Lottery paid out $495 million, and a lot of them were repeat winners.

One man over a 12-month period cashed 25 tickets worth $77,000.

Lottery officials said one thread runs true when it comes to repeat winners.

"The last few years I've been a little lucky. It's mostly luck, I guess," said one winner, who asked only to be identified as Kevin.

Last month, WLKY's Steve Burgin met up with Kevin at lottery headquarters, where he cashed four winning Pick 3 tickets, each worth $600.

Burgin found Kevin after filing an open records request with the lottery for repeat winners over a one-year period.

Audit: Stores buying Michigan lottery tickets from players

November 18, 2014, 10:13 pm ET

Some Michigan stores that sell lottery tickets are hitting the jackpot by buying winning tickets from desperate players at a discount, according to auditors who are urging a crackdown on the illegal practice.

Lottery players who owe back taxes or other debts don't want the state to learn their identity. So they're probably selling winning tickets back to retailers for less than what they're worth, the audit found.

An audit released Tuesday said 37 store owners turned in winning tickets worth nearly $3.6 million in 2012 and 2013. One retailer collected 107 prizes worth $346,312 last year.
