most of the time i think truck drivers passing through buying tickets and never come back to claim them for any amount of reasons, so i hope they do get their money.

i don't know why anyone would wait that long..

              This is where a lottery debit card would come in handy. Register your name and add money. It would track the ticket buyer and find those lucky winners. Can't believe how many are unclaimed this year.

                  I used to throw the losing tickets until a few years ago. Not anymore. I put them in a manilla envelope until tax time in the hopes of some relief at tax time in some special business circumstances. In addition, there are some lotto tickets such as The Arizona Pick-the way the ticket was designed, one could easily throw away a ticket that is actually a winning ticket. That has almost happened to me several times in that game. So my advice is to hold onto those lost tickets for up to a year or more, for one never knows if a mis-read ticket could be winner, maybe who knows, even a Jackpot winner!!!

                      It is stories like this that give lottery players a bad name.

                       

                      There is no excuse.

                        Idaho should have player registration card, so players have the option to register, as players in NSW do. If you win a substantial prize, the lottery calls to let you know the good news, if you have not checked your ticket. If you lose you ticket, it enables you to prove the ticket was yours. If you win small prizes and forget to claim the prize, a check will be mailed to you if you have not collected the prize within a few weeks.

                        We all get a lot out of lotteries!

                              Being on as few government lists as possible is considered a good thing in this country.
