She already won 1 million, let they guy keep the 260 thousand, in my opinion she is being a jerk, in addition aren't we all forgetting something, as far as the lotto headquarters is concernedd, doesn't the ticket belong to whoever's name is on the back of it?

    While the ticket is a "bearer instrument" if an indivudual or group can prove it is rightfully theirs, guess who collects the windfall?

    What I want to know is, how will they from watching this video recording determine if she gave the ticket along with hundred dollars willingly or unwillingly?

        I am sure his attorney would argue that if she was generous enough to give a stranger $100 then she probably gave him a $1 ticket for the lottery also and I would be inclined to believe him. This is why I sign my tickets immediately as I get them on the counter. Even if I lose them, at worst I will split the prize evenly with the person that finds them. 

        My state also gives out nice plastic lottery pouches that you can keep drawslips and tickets in for free and she should have put her tickets in one of those or buy something similar, she won a million dollars, she could afford a $2 pouch to store her tickets.

          Does the video come equipped with audio?

          It seems that she only decided she wanted the ticket back AFTER she learned it was a winner.

          She GAVE him the ticket along with $100.

          So why try to make it seem like this guy stole the ticket?

           

          She GAVE the ticket away.

          Now prove that giving the ticket to this man was an accident and not on purpose.

          And why give $100? Why not just tell the cashier to put $XXX on pump number XX?

           

          Had this guy not said anything about her luck rubbing off on him, this story would not be in print.

          Let the judge decide this case.

            yea, they give the pouches out free, but believe me you i and i paid for them.

            bet slips and pencils too.

                I agree 100%

                 

                I think if she fights this she will lose bigger than she ever plans to win.

                 

                Life has been good to her in some major ways. I think this is a test of character. Will she pass or FAIL?

                    the old style pencil cases are perfect size for this and have a zipper, nothing falls  out if you drop it.

                      Seems that there is more to this story. ABC news is reporting that the security footage shows her buying numerous lottery tickets and giving them away randomly to customers in the store. California lottery has reviewed  the tapes from the store and that appears to be the case. If it shows that she gave away lottery tickets along with the 100.00 bucks then it is a open and shut case and the ticket belongs to the person she gave it to.

                            She is an idiot, I am sorry to say that but she is. Handing out money willy nilly like that she was going to end up broke anyway. 

                            She is the prime candidate to get taken advantage of.

                              she fumbled in her purse for the money — trying not to show how much she was carrying with her — she pulled out the hundred dollar bill and a lottery ticket together.

                                She's NOT using her Common Sense !!!!!!!!!    you don't carry huge cash in your purse or none at all .

                              What is she Ft Knox ????
