"the ticket is in Frank's name"

That's the son. The minimum 20 payments will be made regardless of who does or doesn't die. Assuming the son, who's probably about 30, lives, the payments will continue until he does die.

Seems awfully generous of the lottery when it's seems very clear that it's the father who is the winner.

He could have said he bought the ticket for his son or daughter. People buy scratch of tickets as gifts all the time. Anyone can claim it if the winner is okay with it. But then that person has no control when it's in someone else name. But since that was his son he probably figured that was the best.

    Wow I never thought about that if I had ever won a win for life,  to have a younger kin collect. That way any old person or someone who is terminally ill can have a younger kin collect for years to come. Makes a whole lot of sense. Lotteries be wiping us out. Its time we do it to them lol.

      But I like reading stories like this, good for him and his family.

      Right place at the right time!

          Wow odd decision.  Frank's sister, Jackie [who looks older than 18 years old], lost out big!  She'll now probably have unchangeable hurt feelings towards her parents, Frank, and possibly Frank's family. Poke

          Regardless, it's an exciting BIG win that hasn't seen in NY in many years!

            He's telling a story that any lottery commission would love. Just. One. More. Ticket. Yea, that extra ticket will be the winner...just keep spending more.

              I feel bad for the next person who bought the next ticket in the roll after he went back in. But thankfully that person probably has no clue how close they were to it. Better off that way.

                  Probably not. From the article:

                  "The Kajfasz family had an option of how to collect its winnings. The parents are taking 86 percent, with each of the children getting 7 percent. So the parents will get 19 annual payments of around $450,000 before taxes, or almost $300,000 after taxes. But the ticket is in Frank's name, meaning that family members can keep collecting even after their father's lifetime."

                  So it seems like Jackie's getting a cut of the winnings along with the parents.

                            Just reread the percentages cut, mediabrat, and most will "probably" come to my earlier written conclusion.
