    That's an interesting point you brought up about people cashing other people's tickets.

    The lotteries always say to sign your tickets because they are bearer instruments and can be cashed by anybody if they aren't signed.

    That's always made me wonder if you find a ticket on the ground is it then yours the same as when you find a dollar on the ground, and if not, what are you supposed to do with it?

    They make it sound like it is yours to cash in when they call it a bearer instrument.

    "That's always made me wonder if you find a ticket on the ground is it then yours the same as when you find a dollar on the ground, and if not, what are you supposed to do with it?"

    I have no idea how many lottery tickets I've cashed through the years, but not once have they asked me to prove I bought the tickets. And the same is true when I found a quarter, dime, nickel, penny, or even a twenty on the ground; we're never asked to prove ownership when spending money. The value of a found or bought lottery ticket is the price of the ticket before the drawing. After the drawing the ticket could be worthless or worth several million dollars.

    The real question when finding lottery tickets is "are they lost or discarded?".

    The CT lottery knows if the ticket is a QP or SP and if it is a QP, the guy can't possibly prove that he played "his numbers" but lost the ticket. If it's a SP and the ticket is validated, he will some how prove he is the rightful owner who accidentally lost the ticket. I wonder what type of reward he is offering?
