I hope it's lost, to find that ticket later on, check the numbers only to find out

you won and the deadline has passedThud ugh!!!!

Years ago I found an expired  ticket in the kitchen junk drawer that my wife bought before I met her,

I tossed it right into the fireplace (burning) some things you don't want to know.

      There is a lesson in this story or should say there are many lessons in this lost jackpot.

      First, the State won it now that the owner has not claimed it.

      Second,maybe they were afraid  the  jackpot would put them in jeopardy.

      Third, they failed to check the ticket and threw it out by mistake.

      Finally, maybe they were elderly and expired. 

      And surely our members can think of other scenarios related No Pity! to this frustrating event.

          P***ed MadThere goes another RIPOFF from the lotteries as usual. The next thing you hear is blah, blah , blah, about education. I don't know who I'm more pi$$ed off at...the dumba$$ who bought the ticket, or the lotteries, who are always eager to use any excuse, to get their filthy hands on any money, that should go into the pot for the next jackpot draw. The players should be given the opportunity, to compete for that money, and screw that crap, about blah, blah ,blah, about education. That $hit really pi$$e$ me off.Argue

          If you lose your money, why should the state give it to lottery players? If you leave your loaf of bread at the store do you think they should hand out slices to everyone else who's buying bread, or does it make more sense to use the savings to lower the costs they pass on to all of their customers?

            That was huge amount of prize. How I wish I have won that ticket, I wil never let it unclaimed. I wonder if the winner even have an inkling about the prize that he was about to claim. A lot of players are actually waiting for a winning moment it is so sad that some players didn't know that they have won the prize. As players we need to be serious with our game.
