    "One of the most famous cases nationally of an unclaimed lottery jackpot occurred in 1996 when Clarence Jackson of Hamden, Conn., turned in his $5.8 million ticket three days late. He didn't receive a penny. Connecticut Lottery officials were sympathetic but wouldn't budge on the rules."

    Now there's a guy who probably wouldn'ta minded seeing his picture in the paper!

      gotta go along w/ that, maybe the rule should be,

      if you don't claim in 10 mos. we will put your pic. out in an effort to pay you.

      naw they'll never do that.

        I can only say that this a careless move. Why even play the lottery if you forget about your ticket?
