TAX... lower tier prizes
The clerk said you can get get paid at the lottery merchants and you can do this for 10 tickets at 10 different locations or even one location (if they have the money) and you dont have to pay taxes.
Well, she just told you how to avoid paying the taxes due on your winnings under law.
Can you get away with it? Yes, apparently you can, according to that person from Kentucky who apparently does it all the time and recommends it.
But is it legal? No.
People have been caught and prosec ...

Some of which may or may not include greedy family members and/or friends, a lack of education, a lack of sound legal and financial advice, a tendency toward showing off and bragging, a proclivity towards strippers, drugs, alcohol, expensive cars, shopping, etc., and the inability to say NO!

Would eliminating minimum wage laws effect lottery ticket sales?
Australia's minimum wage is $16.37 per hour and lottery ticket sales are very healthy there, as well as a whole lot of other gambling. Aussies bet on anything that moves: athletes, horses, dogs, cane toads, etc. All legal. I read somewhere that Australia has the highest rate of gambling in the world.

NY deli owners stole $1M lottery ticket, cops say
Added to that is the fact that people are being taken advantage of because they speak very little English .
Rule of thumb: Learn the language of the country you living in or be prepared to experience this crap time and again.

Sister loses fight over $32M jackpot her brother split with barber
Haddad is seeking legal costs which could easily run into six figures from his sister for the action. Beaudoin gave Haddad's lawyer, Lawrence Greenspon, 20 days to make submissions on what those costs should be.
I like this line best. It's a warning to money grabbers. Those who feel entitled to try and reap where they didn't sow. Congrats Mr Haddad.

An antiquated bent over blind lady, who you only know as "Vera" ...
No, it would not be irrelevant. If someone gave you $ to purchase a ticket, you have a legal and ethical obligation to tell the lottery officials. it is no different than all the other related but similar fact patterns and litigation where people argue over whether money loaned for a ticket meant something else, i.e. a promise to share. The only difference is the women disappeared and there is a legal obligation to disclose and for the lottery offiicals to look for her. The state has a legal obl ...
