The ticket image was online on one of the News sites, at least the one I got. I first heard this mentioned on the "Court of Kuby" segment on 770WABC radio, and then it appeared on 7online and 1010WINS along with a picture of the actual ticket. I told Todd about it and then it later also appeared on Eyewitness News.

I am eagerly awaiting the follow-up (hopefully) of what really happened.

    Todd  how  did  you  get  that  ticket  copy??/ Thats   good   reporting  I  have  never  seen  a  TV  or  newspaper  account  of  this  story.......this   woman  pride  was  hurt  so  she   Sued  the  Lottery; 

    Why, thank you.  ("good reporting")

    Lots of information is out there, but it requires some digging. 

    For stories like this one, which are fairly complex, I usually research the story using several different sources, and sometimes that can dig up info and images that are not covered in the national news media.

      Did you know that Kuby is going bye-bye?  From what I understand, Imus is taking the morning slot, and Curtis and John Gambling are teaming up after that.

        "we  are  Professional  players and she  is  nott  as  well  informed  as  we  are  here   on  LP  ;

        I seriously doubt that you or anybody else makes a living playing the lottery but it's true that LP members should know enough not to tape two halves from two different tickets together whether the ticket dispenser cut them or not. If you look closely, you'll notice when she taped them, she matched up the back side.

        Anybody over 21 can buy a lottery ticket and there are no rules saying they actually have to know what they're buying. It's like when you see a long line at the checkout counter and hear "price check on aisle 9" because somebody had to grab the only item without a price on it.

         "HER  FIRST  THOUGHT  WAS  TO  TRUST  THE  SYSTEM  ,"

        Or more like "try to beat" the system. Do you honestly believe that was one ticket cut accidentally?

        "JUST  LIKE  MILLIONS  OF  PEOPLE  WHO   TRUSTED  THE  911  COMMISSION ,ONLY  TO  FIND  OUT  LATTER  THE  FACTS  JUST   DON'T   ADD  UP ;

        Who shot JR Ewing?

        Well  ,  first  you  got  the  facts  a  little  twisted....being  a  Professional  does  not  only  mean  you  make  a  living  playing  the  lottery;

        Sometimes  its  ...SO  long  as  I  live  Iwill  play  the  lottery ...and  I  use  resources  that  regular  everyday  people  never   have  seen  this  web  site  nor  use  my  new  power system  ..its  my  way  of  life  ..lotery  before  my  mourning  coffee  and  lotttery  before  I  go  to  sleep  at  night ,studing  the  Board ....who  was  Jr EWING ???before  my  time ???

          "being  a  Professional  does  not  only  mean  you  make  a  living  playing  the  lottery;"

          I suppose you could define a professional as an expert in their field and in skill games like Poker I would agree. Where is the skill when 70% of Mega Millions and Powerball jackpot winners bought QPs?

          "its  my  way  of  life  ..lotery  before  my  mourning  coffee  and  lotttery  before  I  go  to  sleep  at  night ,studing  the  Board "

          That could also define obsession.

          "who  was  Jr EWING ???"

          JR was a character in a TV mini-series called Dallas that was known for its season ending cliffhangers. You were talking about conspiracies and cover-ups and people were trying to figure out "who shot JR?" for months.

            UGH! John Gambling is T-H-E most BOOoooooooring guy on all of radio except for maybe whatshisname Bob Grant. I'd be willing to trade John Gambling taking a slow boat to China in exchange to allow computerized drawing in nj. I LIKE Mr. Kuby even though he's Liberal, at least he is INTERESTING and funny. Gambling says "be that as it may" and other dull lingo and rushes people to get to his grating commercials. And he's so obsessed about illegal immigration that he sounds like a closet racist. If they do this they can expect many angry e-mails and boycotts! And my complaints to WABC go unanswered except that Kuby always writes back when I have questions. I'd rather have Mark Levin in the morning and shove Gambling to around midnight when nobody's listening, he could be a great sleep aid! Who shot my enthusiasm?

            Be that as it may, I got my set of 3 Blue Moon Bucks scratch-off tickets. They are not torn yet, but I'm going to experiment with 2 losing tickets to see if I put 2 different halves together what it looks like. But first I have to write another angry e-mail to WABC.

              I'm curious since you brought up the percentages of QP winners for Powerball and Mega Millions. Does anyone have the percentages for Pick 3 and Pick 4 QP's verses Player own picked numbers winning ticket won, since that seems to be what most people are posting predictions for on here? I'm thinking that the percentages won't be anything like those of the big jackpot games.

              A friend of mine does these things but I didn't think it was a obsession until he told me he dreams of lottery numbers every night.

              Maybe you should have used " Who shot Mr. Burns" instead.Smile

              I love doubles and remember, it's just a game!!!!!!

                Everyone seems to be focused in on the fake ticket when the actual lesson to be learned here is to not "spend" or precommit any lottery winnings until one actually has the cash in one's account.  Oh there are two lessons actually.  The other is to not play scratch ifs.

                Get MONEY!!! Winning a JACKPOT lottery is all the HOPE and CHANGE I desire!!!  NOW give me MONEY!US Flag

                The guy who won the presidency in 2008 really won the lottery...he is now millions richer, travels in first class style, and even has a staff that would be the envy of the richest Powerball winner (she has a staff of 2). Every night he goes to sleep, he probably plays the close of Dave Chappelle's Show: I'm rich beyatch!
