      I was a armed forces serviceman sent overseas and I still played the lottery before departing. All service members mobilized overseas for greater than 9 months get to take 2 weeks of leave.  Although I could not access any lottery website while in the "Green Zone" I did sign up for email drawing results notifications so I could still check my tickets (thanks Illinois Lottery for that). In the absence of those resources, if I played a lottery that still had join jackpot unclaimed, I would just contact a trusted relative to forward me the winning numbers that had hit for that drawing, check my tickets, and if a winner but not possible to take regular leave, I would petition for emergency leave to handle that claim. As for multiple draws, I always use website to check all valid draw results.

      Get MONEY!!! Winning a JACKPOT lottery is all the HOPE and CHANGE I desire!!!  NOW give me MONEY!US Flag

      The guy who won the presidency in 2008 really won the lottery...he is now millions richer, travels in first class style, and even has a staff that would be the envy of the richest Powerball winner (she has a staff of 2). Every night he goes to sleep, he probably plays the close of Dave Chappelle's Show: I'm rich beyatch!

          A sad situation that Camelot wouldn't reveal where ticket was purchased and repeat each month after draw date.


          Also, a sad situation of where these unclaimed jackpot monies went.

          Sad

              A person that plays knowing there's £64 million up for grabs isn't going to forget about their ticket that easily.

                It is indeed regrettable that you will be so quick to assign with impunity,lazy moron” status to the winner without knowledge of the facts to backup your allegation of laziness and imbecility, which is what “moron” means and connotes.

                In the eyes of Camelot, the winner is a missing winner, but it is also possible that the winner's status could be, far much more severe than a mere missing winner, and (heaven forbid) could have the parallel status of a missing person or worst still permanently unavailable.

                Death is the inevitable, unavoidable, unscheduled end of all things, across all of space. All 7 billions of us currently on earth, and the millions of other species, animals, plants, and the earth itself, and yes, taxes and corporations too, are all doomed to the same inevitable, ever un-welcomed, possibly futile end of death; sometimes without notice, without warnings, just like that.

                Perhaps the winner's current status is that of one, who is no longer in a shared existence with those of us still alive.

                It is indeed a privilege to be alive, and our experience of life yesterday and today, gives us the hope that the same experience will be allowed, repeated and fulfilled for us again and again, with many more tomorrows to come our ways. But in the end, Man Proposes and God Disposes.

                Not too long ago on these posts, many of us shared in writings. But noticeably absent was Ridge, and one of the members wrote; and expressed the concern that, He hopes that Ridge was OK, as it was not his style to be so absent. Yes, this is the ideal human reaction that we entertain, when a person that is known to a group, has not been heard from in a while. Even Ridge's avowed enemies on the lottery post, set aside all quarrels until the self declared oracle of the Appalachians was verified still alive and well. I hope you get the point.

                Once again, I did a quick online verification for the definition of the word moron and the value returned from the freedictionary.com is as follows:

                “mo·ron

                 n.

                 1. A stupid person; a dolt.

                 2. Psychology A person of mild mental retardation having a mental age of from 7 to 12 years and generally having communication and social skills enabling some degree of academic or vocational education. The term belongs to a classification system no longer in use and is now considered offensive.”

                I encourage you to retract your calling this winner “Moron”, seek his/her forgiveness even in the spirit and that will suffice, and in so doing, you also affirm the dignity, civility, respectability and the class act of this forum, to continue to be, and reign un-interrupted.

                It takes one to know one...................

                  Sounds like they wanted it to go unclaimed because the charities deserve the money MUCH more than the winner no matter who it may be.........
