Calif. man knew he won $1M but lost the lottery ticket
This is BS, if you are clearly identifiable as the person that bought the ticket and the winner, you should get the money. This should be a good test case for a lawsuit against the lotteries. There are many scenarios where you could lose the ticket through no fault of your own, theft of your wallet, house fire, theft of your car etc. I believe that guy that won in Canada and did not know was notified by the lottery that he won because they had some sort of registration system which is good.

Lottery windfalls can buy anything except anonymity
People here always say it's very unlikely, but I don't believe that at all. Identity theft is already a huge problem, that's without being a confirmed halfbillionaire. Look at the Sony data leak and how many people already ran into problems with that.

Pay for tickets w/ credit card? NYC promotions
I googled... can credit cards be used for gambling
it's the banks of credit cards that don't allow it for some obvious reasons
credit vs debit cards and identity theft from stores or restaurants
best bet do online banking...use credit card from your bank
any suspicious charges will be seen by you and stopped with a phone call
better to have the credit company on board and card cancelled over personal accounts being in jeopardy

Career cover story after winning the lottery?
Good one Poo Nanny.
I would tell them that I finally got a patent on my prescription windshield invention for drivers who don't want to wear glasses or contacts.
I would add to that the auto insurance companies are paying me bonuses because the prescription windshields really cut down on auto theft!

NEW YORK Instant scratch off tickets
The Cadiliac game doesn't make much sense for me at least, not living in NYC. 4 top prizes of 500k and a CTS. I assume you have to pay taxes on the car, I know you have to pay taxes on the 500K. Then there is the expense of owning a car in NYC, gas, cameras, the threat of theft etc.

Would you quit your job if you won the lottery?
Sully16, I am sorry to hear that! This is a painful experience on several levels to a person. Yet another evidence of overpopulation, inflation increasing, theft increasing, and wistful employers/companies not receiving the community/nation support they require to keep and ADD to their full-time employees each year!
Love/charity your neighbor -- switch to mainly buying American services and products people.

New multi-state lottery game coming to NY, NJ
I guess I should correct my incorrect third grade math as I did not take account into tax theft for the multistate game.
600,000/600.000 per day = 1000 days
1000 days / 365 days = 2.7 years of equivalent richness.
600,000/32,000 per year = 18 .75 years WAITING for the same equivalent of money!!!!!!
