Congratulations, lucky CA guy!!!

Would one of our members with a California Powerball ticket, from this month, please turn it over and read the back.  Please then inform us if it reads something to the effect of 'winner's likeness is required to receive prize'.  Thanks, in advance, for solving this check-covering-face mystery for me!

Hippy

There is no mystery.  Obviously he's allowed to do what he did, otherwise the lottery officials would have made him show his face for the photo.

    The California lottery winners handbook still says winners will receive a check and no EFT (electronic fund transfers) are availible.   I wonder how long a bank would put a hold on a check of that size, so it could be verified.

      A truly smart winner would be making plans to leave CA after the first of the year to escape the draconian tax structure there!

          It's photo's like this that make you know the lottery is not rigged! 

          A man wins 142 million dollars in the clear in his 50's and he shows up wearing a star war's yoda shirt hiding his face.  What a coward geek haha!  He might actually get to kiss a girl on the lips for the first time now with that kind of jack haha! 

          It woulda made better drama for someone to show up demanding a picture taken outside showing his face driving a dukes of hazzard "General Lee" replica with a couple of hot gals hanging out the windows!  Throw it a J G Whitworth shirt that says "ITS MY MONEY AND I WANT IT NOW!" 

          They just don't know how to go about it right! Banana     Man you know what im saying!

              I Agree! With a state income tax rate of 13.3% I don't think he will linger too long in California unless he doesn't mind sharing his future proceeds with a Government that is sinking in it's own debt.

                      Good thing he decided to get an extra ticket!

                      Buying multiple lottery tickets increases your chances of winning a lottery jackpot.

                        I'm glad to see a Star Wars fan win. Now he can afford to buy a set of Death Star ice cube trays.

                        It is ironic to see a Star Wars fan winning a lottery jackpot. I wonder if Darth VADER has won a lottery jackpot.LOL

                              I Agree! No doubt there are plenty of people trying to get more info on him in an attempt to get a piece of his newly found wealth.
