    Why 4-6 weeks till the check is issued, it's not like they have a cash flow problem!

    Good Luck!

      Yes, I do, I just love to parody the one who always hopes they choose the cash option, then hopes they don't have financial problems later in life.  The 'cash option' is a RECIPE for financial problems in life.  Imagine if, when you finished school and started your first job/career, they gave you your next 30 years of salary in advance and said its up to you to make it last.  How many people do you think could pull that off?

      He hasn't been around for quite a while. I'm not complaining about it either.

        I've actually begun to wonder if winning the lottery is even worth the hassle. Now in anonymous states like Delaware (and a few others), one can easily, if they can contain themselves, slip away quietly and not be missed.

        The lottery will NEVER sit on an opporunity to gloat to the press as quickly and as much as possible.

         I've actually begun to wonder if winning the lottery is even worth the hassle.

         

        You're joking, right?  At first I read your comment incorrectly.  I thought you wrote "I've actually begun to wonder if playing the lottery is even worth the hassle."  If I won $7 million bucks, I think I'd put up with a little aggravation!   If I had to wait a few weeks, I'd just take a vacation and use a credit card until I got the money.

            Congratulations to Jane Rowland for winning $6.9 million in the lottery.  I hope that she does not have financial difficulty later in her life.  I am a firm believer that with an owl in your name she probably does not give a hoot!-weshar75

              They call it a validation process.

              Typical lottery commission... validate ticket after announcement...

              I think it has to do with running your name thru federal databases to find out outstanding debt like student loans, welfare status and child support... or whether you were sued or owe damages or restitution...

              Can't think of another reason ...

              Playing more than one ticket per game is betting against yourself.

                When my friend won a large Powerball prize in Delaware (not the jackpot), he had his check in less than one hour.

                  Rats, we passed the Hollidaysburg exit a week before.. I could have stopped and asked for a loan!

                  MATCH 6 is also the only game I know of (maybe the new one in MD also) where you can have a ticket in which some of the prize levels are mathematically impossible to win depending on what the QP 2nd and 3rd line are.

                    The most out of 18 I ever matched was 8, I don't believe it is possible to match more than that. Although they list winners for 9 and 10 out of 18, I still don't buy it. I bought A LOT of tickets and the QP's are almost never the same at all. I would not believe it unless I seen it.
