Maybe it was bought by a snow-bird who was just about to hop into a plane to fly north..really sad. I'd rather someone claim and waste the money than never claim at all.

I suppose hearing a jackpot of $20M or less was won isn't enough to get some people concerned to the point of checking their tickets.  I wonder how long will it be before a jackpot of $200M+ goes unclaimed.

      This to me is just a sign of follishness, ignorance! Bash  What's the sense of playing and not checking the ticket. A pervect example is just last night with me. I caught 2 free games with Take 5 which could be a big winner in tonites game.Wink Plus I have a co worker that we split a powerball and mega ticket. On last nights Powerball we caught the powerball, $4.00 dollars. So with that I will buy another powerball for Saturday, and 2 Mega's for tomorrow night. This is all due to a winner we caught. Because I checked our ticket. And we may just win the big one.Hyper CHECK YOUR TICKETS PEOPLE..Dance

                Might be in one of those sink holes.

                  Makes you wonder if the person passed away.

                    I treat every bought ticket for any lottery game as though it's the jackpot winner until proven otherwise. Respect your ticket(s) and your chance to experience a life-changing event.

                      Another one bites the dust. Bash

                      This is a dream come true.  But, someone let it slip through their fingers.  I'd hate to be that person.  I wonder if there was video shown of the winner on the news.  They do that in California, and sometimes that really helps find the winner.

                      Better luck next time.

                        Why play the lottery if you don't check your tickets?  It makes no sense to me.  Bash

                          I Agree!   Don't let the opportunity slip by.  It might not come again because the odds are not in your favor.
