Playing the devil's advocate, the question that needs to be asked is this:

Is it within the realm of possibility that a lottery clerk could switch an unsigned ticket that someone handed them to be scanned?

Unequivocally, the answer is yes.

Perhaps Ted's suspicions were aroused by something that just didn't seem right at the time when the clerk checked his ticket and handed it back to him.

Given the horror stories about clerks stealing jackpots and the amount of money at stake, perhaps he just wanted to make sure that wasn't happening by having the possibility ruled out by the routine standards of claims processing just for his own peace of mind.

Or forever wonder.

        Judging from the story Ted crafted he just wanted to create some chaos without down right lying.  He never said he played the winning numbers or even bought a ticket at the place that sold the winning ticket, he just suggested he could have.  It was the judge request that he sign something stating where he bought his winning ticket that put an end to his game.

          The judge may have scared him off with that but he just might have been unsure where he bought it or which Mr Patel checked it for him.

          Maybe he's blasted out of his mind most of the time like me.

            If he had believed even a part of the $33M belonged to him, nothing the judge said would have scared him.   He knew once he signed something, they could probably prove he had being lying all along and he probably would do some jail time for filing a false claim.

              He may have indeed been scared off if he was in the habit of buying tickets at all different stores and didn't want to sign an oath saying he bought it at one particular store when he wasn't absolutely sure where he bought it.

              I'm not saying that happened, just that it's possible.

              Stranger things have happened.

              I heard a lady in Detroit called 911 because McDonalds was out of Chicken McNuggets.
