Does anyone know how long the gas station owner had to wait to receive their $10K bonus? Turkey

    It will really suck if the store getting their bonus $10k is contingent on the winning ticket being validated.

          Redeeming that ticket with just 4 days left is just too close for comfort.

          I wonder how many others winners tried doing the same thing and ended up forgetting?

              I suspect he was nervous about having his identity revealed, lotteries in Europe and Australia allow winners to remain anonymous.

              We all get a lot out of lotteries!

                  That's coming to close to the deadline and not a recommended strategy for anyone. :(

                     After winning I would experience a force like gravity that pulls me to the Lottery Office. It will be difficult not to take the winning ticket in for validation asap.  Like they say, "lawyer up" first.

                      W/ a win of 1 MIL. I would have less then $500,000 after tax,

                      I don't think I need a lawyer for that.

                       

                      As for the gravitational force I agree.

                        Maybe winning wasn't all that important to him. There are some people that just arent crazy about a big lottery win. Congrats to him.

                          If I ever get the chance, I have many times felt like doing the same thing. Wait until the last day.

                            I couldn't wait that long to claim a large amount of money. That would turn me into a nervous wreck. The ticket could be lost, stolen or destroyed in a house fire. The possibilities for disastrous scenarios are endless. And the longer you wait the more likely something bad could happen. I wouldn't even be able to make it through a full month Confused

                             

                            Kudos to the winner though.
