they should put tracking GPS devices on each ticket sold. like lo jack. this way if someone loses it, they know where it is.

    May this winner never know they won....if they don't find the ticket before the deadline!

    Can you imagine the anguish you would go through?

    i just want to say the winner was me but i didnt want all the publicity that comes with winning a large jackpot so i threw my ticket away, so dont feel bad for me im perfectly happy with my decision

          You never know where this person may be,could be in the War,passed away,in a crazy hospital,or just simply forgot they bought it.I have that problem sometimes,CRS is what I have daily at my old age.I just hope they claim it.I'm going to Georgia first thing in the morning,I hope to Powerball or Mega Millions.There is a lady that works at Jack in the box,she has been without a car for a year now,she gets a new one.My daughter and grandbaby will hurt for nothing ever again,there is a single father in this city that gets my home.My father raised us 4 by his self,so I pick a man to get my home.and the list goes on and on.........I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and God Bless.Big Grin Santa

                This shows that player registration or playing by subscription is a good idea. If you loose your ticket, you can prove it is your ticket.

                We all get a lot out of lotteries!

                    I Agree! And I imagine it is a truck driver who was getting by on $400 per week.  Or it could have been a family traveling with a RV full of pets and one of the dogs ate the winning ticket.  In any case, it is just too bad I wasn't driving along that corridor at that time.  I guarantee you I would never let a jackpot ticket expire without me claiming the prize.

                    Amen to that!

                     

                    I take winning VERY SERIOUSLY

                      So this ticket is now officially invalid? Incredibly sad. Even after taxes, $77 million is enough to change many lives.

                        guess so...since we haven't heard any updates on this

                        it's prolly best for the ticket holder to never find the ticket now

                          If the prize isn't claimed, does the money go back into the pool and give a boost to the current jackpot?

                          Read the opening paragraphs regarding what the lottery commission does with the money that wont be paid out.....

                          "HOWEVER" AND I MEAN HOWEVER, I really think its a load of bs.

                          The freakin money should go right back into the pot for the next draw but it doesnt.

                          This isnt the way the lottery is supposed to be run.

                          This is just proof yet again that the govt. loves all your free money an fair play be <snip>ed.
