When a spokesperson from the Tennessee Lottery learned of this mistaken delivery she made it known the tickets are not valid until a lottery retailer activated them.

That was the first thing that ran through my mind when I read the headline... that they wouldn't even be worth anything to him. I'm sure he's glad he did the right thing, as trying to turn them in would likely have caused some problems for him.

    He had mentioned the seal on the box looked loose and possibly tampered with.

     

    Probably he wanted to return to the Lottery Commission in case items were missing, didn't want to be blamed by the management of the store

    they were addressed to of theft. IMHO.

    Thanks, mcginnin56, this makes sense.  Idea

    It was good that he was a kind enough soul as to not throw the large amount of tickets away. Mail For You

        Of course being unscanned they were worthless, although might have been some million dollar winners in there had he thrown them out.  What?
