      Why was that a bad idea? At least they gave it back to the people of your great state.

      When Ohio discontinued its Lot'O Play game and there wasn't a jackpot winner, they gave the money to players proportionally to the winning tickets of lower prizes they bought for the last game rather than giving it to the general public of which many didn't play lotteries. 

      I bought 20 tickets of which two were minimum winners which paid very well.

        I Agree! I think that's a great idea, and PB could easily do the same with the $590 million.

          If the PB people really want to know who won the jp, they could go to where the ticket was sold and check the surveillance video and post a pic on tv. 

           

          I hope the winner(s) come forward before that happens.

            Perhaps they are taking a "you snooze, you lose" stance?

              If the winner doesn't come forward in the allowed time, there are probably hundreds of folks ready with a story to try and claim it since no one ever goes to jail for filing a false claim.

                Considering they only have 60 days, the clock will run out VERY fast.

                  With all the computer technology out there I'm surprised there are not more false winning tickets.

                      With a false claim you wouldn't want any hard evidence you couldn't deny and a false winning ticket would be that.  Best to just claim you bought the ticket and lost or misplaced it.

                        To each his/her own. For all we know, the winner might already be a millionaire{like JACK} and could care less about the interest. One who is comfortable in their life, and does not care for the "GOD FORSAKEN" publicity, or maybe they have memory issues, and are totally oblivious of the fact that they WON REALLY BIG.

                            Whoever comes forward will already be under suspicion because they waited so long.

                              I really hate that idea of using surveillance video.  It's only been two weeks they have until November to claim the jackpot.  It could take more than two weeks to plan for that much money.
