LOL @ comment by OriginalBey.

i can't even fathom WHO would allow this to happen....Thumbs Down

I've always check mine in 1 day,or same night right after it come on in my area 10:59 p.m.eastern.

 

I'm not sure if you recall that someone lost almost 60 MILLION!(never claim his or her winnings) SMDH

In Cali or Indiana a whopping $ 57 MILLION dollar ticket NEVER was claimed.

1 SINGLE winner..

How sad.smh.

Happened several years ago.

 

adios...

        Why don't you suggest she just mail you the money to buy them and then you could buy and check them and return any winnings she had coming.  Save her some time too.

        Yeah, that's a good idea and it would save a stamp

          In 2014 : A $130 mil unclaimed lottery ticket from NY- where did you read this?

            I carry my tickets in my wallet in my front pocket just so I can never be pick pocketed. For advance draw tickets, I put them in a fireproof safe in my house. I will never lose a winning ticket.

              It was in 2013 it just says pending on the powerball website. I don't know if that was claimed or not.

                l think the winner came forward- if not, l can see someone jumping from a Skyscraper.

                Missing out on a Million- ** no biggie- but $130 mil?

                  If it was claimed wouldn't it say so? The claim period ended November 2014.

                    True- it could have said "Unclaimed", which it doesn't.  Pending could be anyone's guess.

                      Until he found out he could have won a million dollars he probably thought the most he lost was the price of the ticket which wasn't that much. Unhappy

                          I'm just the opposite, I treat my tickets as if they could be worth millions until after I've checked them and know they aren't for sure. Wink

                              We were pickpocketed in Greece a few years ago in a front pocket that was even secured.  They were so good!  Be careful and never say never.
