Since they know it's him, if he comes forward without the ticket, can he still get the money? Like say he lost the ticket.

They would probably argue that video evidence is not admissible and demand the ticket yet they will use video clips of security cameras to prosecute vandals or burglars. The law is a jealous mistress haha

That money's gone fo ever

    WOW  I'm amazed how people play and then just forget.  I know $465,539 may not seem like a lot, but I could do things with the after tax amount for certain!!!  I could pay off some debt in full, pay off my car, and save some.  The rest I would figure out LOL

        I will say it again.  If you buy a ticket and are too stupid to check it you deserve to not get the money.  The govt/no one should have the right to put out a video of you or a picture without permission.  Never, no how......

        Heres a list of places that your opinion means zilch.

        1: Casinos

        2: Banks

        3: Federal Buildings

        4: Entry to secured Buildings

        5: Most major cities now have street cams

        6: Subways

        7: Airports

        8: Department & Grocery stores and parking lots.

        9: Hospitals

        10: Prisons

        11: Courthouses

        No where on any tickets have I seen the line : You don't deserve to claim or win if you haven't checked your numbers.

        ~~Is it true, Is it kind,Is it necessary. ~~~

          It's like, don't do me any favors. Who wants to be splattered all over the place like that with people looking for you?

          What if he forgot about his ticket? What if it's in some landfill? The drawing was in MAY?

          That's nuts...but maybe he wanted to wait. So much for that, if anyone does know him, the wait approach is gone.

          Maybe he died, maybe he lost it, maybe he's in jail, maybe he is taking advantage of the time he has...hey! maybe he

          doesn't need it!

          Oh well whatever the reason the only way I'm sure he'd be happy having his mug posted is that he forgot his ticket

          was in the old coffee can above the stove. Roll Eyes

          I Agree! 

          he just got set up MAYBE now being Targeted because of them pictures, That other guy was beat and robbed over $160.00

            Hollywood?

            Oh man.

            I hope it wasn't one of them Hollywood weirdos like Sean Penn or Charlie Sheen or Jane Fonda who bought it.

            Unless they lost the ticket.

            Then it would be funny.

            Especially if it was Hanoi Jane.  LOL

              No Pity!

               

              He may have pushed the ticket down in his pockets, and later washed the pants with his other laundry, thereby washing the ticket.  If  the ticket got really messed up in the laundry machine since they R made of paper, it may be toooooo late. Sorry 4 him

                Oh this is a great surprise for him,having his picture plastered when someone recognizes him ,and kicks in his door ,to help him look.This reminds me of the lady that won in Liverpool,NY. She got busted up in her home ,by two knuckle heads looking for her winnings .Because the media plastered her picture.This lady hadn't even got her money yet........yikes

                  i think this guy is really forgets he has bought this ticket, because he is too busy.

                  Thanks for your kindness to visit my posting; and left me your warmness for my slow chewing! 

                  Those who wants to win lottery is normal; and it is abnormal if anybody does not want to win!

                    Did the winner able to claim his prize? It will be unfortunate if the ticket will just simply expires when there are a lot of hopeful players who would love to be in his shoes.  The management is also helpful for showing the footage to track down the winner. I hope their effort will not go to waste.
