Is there any chance that Just6 is actually just 6? That would explain a lot. Not everything, but a lot.

      The self scanners only lets a person know if the ticket is a winner or not. Doesnt give the value of win.

      I personally think the person should have to sign a slip that prints out showing the ticket value. Sorta a cash receipt that saves from fraud or dupe'n a lottery player.

      The self scanners here in WI do show the amount of the win on the ticket.

          I hope this person steps forward in a "line-up" and has financial problems later in life!

            In Oregon the self scanners only show if the ticket is a winner - ya gotta go see the clerk to find out how much - and any scanner will say if a ticket is a winner but for any ticket worth over $600 if you try to get it validated at a store other than the one you purchased it at ... the validation machine comes back with something like "not verifiable at this location".  Apparently clerks in Oregon are not required to tell the customer they need to go to the store where they purchased the ticket .... some have simply kept such tickets and walked off with the money.  This almost happened to me once - the clerk said something like "it's worthless" and went to throw it in the trash ... and was quite POed when I insisted on having the ticket back. I checked it again where I purchased it ... twas worth $1900! This happened early on in my lottery ticket purchasing career and now I always check my numbers on line or in the newspaper first.  And I know to go to place of purchase :)

                My ID was named Just6ntlc because I created this ID from the word just. I add the number 6 because I hope WB 6 and Mega 6 will occur in CA SLP. The n just random. The tlc is the band. I hope the winner (man) of the MM ticket pocketed $555K by matching 5/5 won't have financial problems later in life.
