Ohio Lottery investigating frequent winners
I'm sure discounters aren't buying tickets that haven't been verified so the only reason for winners to use them is to avoid legal obligations and the retailers and discounters know this. Using that logic (the only reason), should we assume anyone claiming a large jackpot anonymously are doing it to avoid legal obligations?

Ohio Lottery investigating frequent winners
The state lotteries could make it even more difficult to cash winning tickets, but difficulty is probably why some players are selling their winning tickets. In Ohio claims of $600-$5000 only require a local retailer verify the winning ticket and a claim form be filled out and notarized before being taken to a local bank to collect the winnings. I'm sure discounters aren't buying tickets that haven't been verified so the only reason for winners to use them is to avoid legal obligations and th ...

Georgia Lottery cracks down on 'shadow winners'
In some cases they aren't purchasing tickets but getting out of the trash or off tables. I was in a store a few months ago and saw a cashier get left over tickets and scratch the bar code to see if they were winners. Thats why I always take my tickets with me to make sure. I've picked up tickets in TN(some retailers have lock boxes in stores that they get the tics and put them in a bag so I know they are taking those home) and keyed them in for second chance drawings and they've been a winner no ...

CA Lottery - California Love - CA Lottery Scratchers
Rather than hoping to find the retailer who carries the winning ticket, the best shot of winning the grand prize is through the second chance program. If you have at least 5 entered, it will be better odds than buying tickets to scratch off the top prize.

FL Lotto Scratch Off Payouts Below Face Value?
I agree with Stack's advice to recheck your cards closely. There might be two winning numbers on each of them. If rechecks don't solve the problem, take them to your nearest lottery retailer and have them scanned. The court of last resort of course would be contacting FL Lottery HQ.

Georgia Lottery cracks down on 'shadow winners'
If this is the case, they should investigate the Patels; they win on every second chance drawing, sometimes more than once. Retailers are making a killing. They should not be allowed to buy tickets. I rarely buy scratch offs in the store because if you buy a bunch and don't win; they purchase tickets behind you. If you're a drunk you can't sell booze (you would drink up all your product) So if you are a gambler , you shouldn't be allowed to be a retailer. 2 million is kind of low for the amount ...

According to the FL Lottery website, there are only 3 top prizes left, not 5. There are 5 second prizes left, however. The card is almost 5 years old, and it's obviously sold out in the Orlando area. Your best bet would be to check with retailers in cities/towns outside the Orlando metropolitan area.

Scratcher search
Can't help you much on that. I don't play scratchers much, maybe one a week. My problem with them is that the lottery will tell you there are x winners out there. But what you don't know is does somebody have the winning tic and doesn't know it, and threw it away, or has the winning tics even been distributed to the retailers yet, or have any retailers have the tics in a back room and haven't gotten around to activating the pack. You might be searching for a tic with some top prizes left that ar ...

Scratcher search
Does anyone have info on scratcher distribution to retailers. Game 1048 lucky for life $20.00, began in jan 2010 and is currently the oldest scratcher out there. The Florida lottery alleges that there are five jackpots still in play. The problem is that it's hard to find. It is my understanding that, The chain retailers have either an internal plan for puchase or the lottery autoships. The Individual retailers must specifically request. I have asked over 150 retailers in the greater Orlando area ...
