Guess it's what makes this world go round.

Sometimes there is no rhyme or reason for what happens.   Crazy

You're probably right, mcginnin56. 

It's outcomes like these which gives we LP members a lingering hope that we, too, will win a big net MMs lottery jackpot, since past winners have stretched the complete spectrum of human highest integrity into devoid of integrity.  Fascinating!

          I dont think the state should have ever re-opened the case. If the lottery ticket is truly a "barer instrument" it belonged to the boys who cashed it in.........

          Anyone who is dumb enough to hand over a $5 million ticket for $4000. deserves to be a 2 time loser.

            Glad to see the real winner get what's rightfully his and hopefully the POS brothers will get what's coming to them (jail time.)

            Unfortunately, I get the feeling that the winner will be broke in a few short years as he seems like an easy mark for swindlers.

            He was not the "real winner". Once he handed over the ticket he became the "real loser"

              But it's not quite like just finding a $5 bill on the ground in the middle of nowhere is it?

              In a case like that, I'm sure everyone would agree it's "finders keepers".

              But to put that same valuation on a $5 million scratch ticket, should certainly require a bit more of an investigation.

                I say they should have walking in and cashed the ticket in minute they received it and the state should have stayed out of it, except of course for giving them their money......

                  Had that been the case, they most likely would have gotten away with it.

                  Their mistake was in waiting to the last minute, and agreeing to a lesser amount for their "privacy".

                    But Im not sure its "getting away" with anything to offer $4000. for a winning ticket?  Sounds more like a very wise purchase to me........

                        Right, I heard one person say that most people who play the lottery really don't want to win and the reason they do play the lottery is because the risk of winning is very very LOW.........

                        I think the clerks were doing the poor slob a favor......

                            Sorry i didn't read the comments or the entire story.

                            No problem, just read the post on page 11.

                            The clerk literally ran out of the store with the ticket in hand, the guy chasing him down the street!!!

                            He knew he was ripped off somehow!

                              There should be a criminal charge for playing the lottery under the influence of drugs.......

                              Anyone who is stupid enough to try and cash a $5 million ticket at the liquor store should lose the prize.
