I can't believe that there are people who do not check their tickets. If this ticket goes unclaimed, this would be huge waste!

Following the trends and patterns means following the money!Banana

       Possible scenarios for a unclaimed ticket in Texas:   Hector has died.

                                                                                    Hector has been deported.

                                                                                    Hectors Burro has died and he can't get to the L.O.

                                                                                    Hectors wagon is broken and he can't get to the L.O.

                                                                                    The L.O. is next to the ICE office.

                                                                                     Hector is too busy watching the World Cup.

      Hector is not concerned with the location of the ICE office unless he needs a bus ticket to another state. Rather than immigration, ICE is currently in the business of distributing all the Hectors, their cousins, and their children all over the US, without health screenings I might add. "Children" being those under the age of 26.

        That is another reason why DHS is asking for XXL underwear so that they can accommodate these "children". I bet the pictures that has been published showing all these 3-9 year old children is just an anomaly as the majority are probably over 16. I can't see any parent in their right mind sending off a child, especially one under the age of 5 into the dessert in order to find a better way of life.

          And I'm willing to bet that many if not most of those children over the age of 8 is a gang member. MS-13 starts them very young, and kills the ones who do not follow orders. Many of these children crossing over are sociopaths who have been through brutal initiations. If they were not already socially 'damaged' before, then the brutal trip across the desert, rapes, kidnappings, murders, etc may have done what the gangs have not.

          It is a very sad reality.  But you won't hear much about this in our main stream media. They'd rather white wash it to make you believe these are starving little children wanting to join their mommies. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2657695/Known-gang-members-thousands-illegal-immigrant-children-storming-U-S-border-government-trying-silence-officers-talking-media.html

            Probably the main reason I want to win a jackpot. To find a bug out location for when the SHTF.

              If the  $12 M is not claimed ,why would a lottery official say ," prize money could soon be gone with the wind" when they know it will revert  back to the state?

              Never thought that The State can actually be "the winner" of a big Jackpot, but indeed they are!

               The choice of words were poor and implies that the state will "blow it away" on a "worthwhile cause".

              Yup, it will be gone with the wind for the winner, who fails to claim it in time.

              Frustrating to read stories about expiring jackpots but that is a fact of life for us lottery players. 

              Only 6 months to claim a jackpot in TX? Thought the time limit  was a year?  Is the 6 month limit applicable to the Power Ball and Mega Millions,as well  in TX ? Hope other states don't adopt this short time frame!

              Cussing Face   What?

              How long does one need to check a ticket?

              Heck, I know within 5 minutes of the drawing if my tic is a winner or not. (Usually not, LOL).

              If I ever hit a jackpot, I won't claim it the next day, but it will definitely be before 6 months.

              Bottom line, whoever won this jackpot is an idiot for not checking his tic.

                Many players buy Auto Picks and if the tickets are misplaced they have no idea that they had any of the winning numbers let alone the winning combination and are forgotten and probably lost.  Probably too many times in the past they have almost gone crazy looking for misplaced tickets only to find them and discover they wasted their time because all the tickets were losers.  That's the reason all unclaimed jackpots are auto picks.
