California Lottery begins offering tickets at gas pumps

August 4, 2015, 10:40 am ET

Play at the Pump, the California Lottery's latest expansion of the lotto market, is both convenient and controversial.

Convenient because it allows credit card users to both fill up and buy up to $20 worth of Quick Picks without ever having to go inside.

At the same time, it's controversial because the offerings are a sharp change from the lottery's long standing cash-only rules aimed at cutting down on overspending by poor people and chronic gamblers.

The concerns are valid," said Alex Traverso, a spokesman for the California Lottery. "But we've put controls in place (for the gas pump game) to make people skew to responsibility and security."

New York Lottery

NY man claims friend broke deal to split lottery prize, files lawsuit

August 4, 2015, 8:27 am ET

A Queens, New York, man claims one of his best friends is bilking him out of hundreds of thousands of dollars, after improbably striking the jackpot on a lottery ticket the two had agreed to split — and refusing to share the million dollar bounty.

Terry Hollenquest, 52, a barber and business consultant, alleges that he and his neighbor and longtime buddy Leonard (John) Owens hatched the get-rich plan a year ago.

The two men would play the lotto every day, under the agreement that if either somehow won big — more than $100,000 — and they still lived next to each other, they would split it the take.

Suspected lottery ticket thief causes major wreck in getaway

August 4, 2015, 8:24 am ET

A suspect is in a Houston-area hospital after fleeing the scene of a daring robbery in Conroe and causing a serious traffic accident as he was attempting to make his getaway.

Cody Byrd, 23, of Navasota, Texas, is suspected of stealing a large bin of Texas Lottery tickets from a Chevron convenience store in the Conroe area on Saturday afternoon.

Byrd fled the scene in his vehicle at a high rate of speed only to collide with a family of four on SH-105 westbound. He attempted to flee on foot, according to the Montgomery County Police Reporter, only to be detained by witnesses at the scene.
