Woman says $26M California lottery ticket destroyed in wash

Published:

The winner of a $26 million California Lottery prize may have literally washed the chance of a fortune down the drain.

The winning SuperLotto Plus ticket for the Nov. 14 drawing was sold at an Arco AM/PM convenience store in the Los Angeles suburb of Norwalk. Thursday was the last day to redeem it.

Nobody did.

Store employee Esperanza Hernandez told the Whittier Daily  News  that a woman came in Wednesday and told workers that she had put the ticket in her pants and it was destroyed in the laundry.

The store’s manager told  KTLA-TV  that surveillance video showed the woman who bought the ticket, and she's known to store workers.

A copy of the surveillance video was turned over to California Lottery officials, the manager said.

There is nothing to be done here. She lost the ticket and the CA lottery goes with the saying " No ticket, no money."

Play stupid games, win stupid prizes (or nothing).

l know this topic has been covered before: But why would you purchase a lottery ticket or tickets and not put your ticket in a safe place in the event you won? That's like leaving your unlocked vehicle with the engine running in your driveway while you inside watching tv or boozing?
