New York Lottery

Brooklyn man wins court battle to collect entire $10K lottery prize that he won in 2007

November 24, 2015, 12:37 pm ET

It took a while — and a decision by the state's highest court — but a 69-year-old Vietnam vet from Brooklyn, New York, can finally enjoy all his 2007 lottery winnings.

The Court of Appeals ruled Thursday that state officials were wrong to claim half of Walter Carver's $10,000 lottery jackpot as a reimbursement for public assistance benefits he received years before he bought the winning ticket.

"We are thrilled," said Carver's attorney Susan Antos. "This has been a long battle."

Because Carver received public assistance through a welfare-to-work program from 1993 to 2000, the state claimed it was entitled to appropriate half of his winnings from the scratch-off lottery ticket as a reimbursement for the benefit payments.

VA man collects on two winning million dollar lottery tickets

November 24, 2015, 10:23 am ET

The Virginia Lottery says Bernard Bennick of Springfield couldn't remember if he bought a lottery ticket, so to be certain he went out and bought one. It turned out he had already purchased a ticket with the same set of numbers, and all six numbers on both tickets matched the November 18 Bank a Million drawing.

"I went to bed, but I couldn't sleep," he said. "Then I discovered I had the second winning ticket, and I really couldn't sleep!"
