THE OLD MAN LOST TICKET STORY,,, here is the deal, I spoke with a supervisor over the phone at lottery central and they told me about the old man story, she really would not get into details (likely legal reasons) but that they rejected his claim, something about the ticket being lost, destroyed, etc, She said they encourage persons with situations like that to file a claim to contest, the old man did, and won. Another story she told me was about some guy who won 175K, not very long ago, she would not get into details, but he was rejected, but she suggested that lottery knew he had to be the winner, just that the rules meant he could not collect, she said she encouraged him to contest, he never did, she all but said he would have gotten paid had he contested it.   Thats all I know. It came str8 from Illinois lottery. She also would not give her last name and told me she only discussed this with me because it was after the deadline,   TO repeat, before, the 14 mil case, she told me that she had no knowledge of a contestment, but stated to me that some lawyer called this morning, not sure what about and she had to call them back. She told me about the ticket photo that was filed, and didnt suggested fraud, just that info was not readable. Weither or not a judge and panel could determine the winner she would not say, but repeated to me that they encourage persons denied claims to file a contest.

      One more thing I have an expert on barcodes working on the copy I have but he needs a ticket from Jan. 31, 2004 to complete his work so the first person to supply me with such a ticket I will give $100 too and if I win my case there will be more money for that person....my other email is gbjm04@yahoo. Oh it just has to be an illinois lottery ticket not from that same store but I need that date! Thanks again and God bless everyone!!!!






      also, regardless of if the person can reproduce a barcode, the tickets have more than just the draw date on them. they have the numbers you played, the store it was purchased at, the day and time that it was purchased, the number of plays, and which were quick picks. each barcode may look the same, but they have loads of differences.

      I've redone my website.  Go to www.dr-ew.com.  I kept a lot of the old stuff, and I've added some new stuff.  Look for more new stuff in the coming weeks.

        the BARCODE is there, but some of it was blocked out, thats all I know. but, they dont suspect fraud and I think that says it all. theres gotta only be a few days left, we will see.

          a bar code does contain all the info needed to declare a winner I was told.   but that it was slightly incomplete

              I would say I dont know, but as far as I know the person has only a few more days to contest.

                Wherever it's at as of this post, is where it's going to stay!

                In other words the state keeps it!

                  I always thought that unwon prizes should be added to the next jackpot.

                      Money not claimed belongs in future drawings.

                        a portion of it funds future jackpots.

                          Depends on the state.

                              That's great James.....that you finally have peace over this.....but as I told you all along.....my ex had the ticket and was the winner so no one else needs to worry about it being them who accidently lost it or whatever.  Im glad you finally have peace though and I truly mean that!! It will be very hard for me to get over this nightmare but I will have to go on and plug ahead for my kids.  Thanks to everyone and anyone who actually cared!!!
