    It would be very sad if this guy truly had and lost the ticket but I got a feeling (Trust me, I'm an Oracle for Pete's Sake!) that he never had the ticket and that the guy who really has it is in consultation with his attorney right now and laughing about this whole affair.

    yeah , I agree with that.

      I suspect the winner is getting personal business in order before cashing in one of the largest jackpots to ever be won in CT.

      Could be talking with lawyers, financial consultants, bankers, and spouse.

      Remember, this persons life is about to take a drastic change once they step forward and claim the prize.

      Looking forward to my lottery payday.

      No one should claim it right away, and if it really is that man who claims to have lost the ticket, I don't feel sorry for him at all.

          I suspect whoever won the Jackpot if he/she didn't lose the ticket may be waiting to show up at the Lotto offices on January 2, 2012. He/she may fear that if he showed now as the year draws to an end and cashes in, he/she will be liable to pay a lot of Federal, State and perhaps even local taxes. So if he/she shows up on January 2, 2012 with the winning lottery ticket, he/she won't worry about taxes till April 15 2013!!!

                I'm betting it's someone going through an ugly divorce that's near the end and they're waiting patiently

                  If whoever is going through a divorce and is waiting as you say, I doubt it will be beneficial. If they were legally married at the time of the win, they will have to split the money.No No

                      Sully, you may be right. And if so, the guy who is making this claim will look like a real monkey for making such a false claim.Bang Head

                            for tax purposes it only matters when the ticket was won not when you cashed it.  so that theory can be shot down. the divorce theory is ridiculous too. i hope he really did lose it, so he can be chump of the year. no one deserves or needs that much money except rdgrunner the oracle of the appalachians.
