    That's true ... I didn't think about a large winning lottery ticket would have to taken to lottery headquarters.

    It seems to me that they must have been back in the store without the executor's knowledge going through all the tickets and came across this large winner ... there must have also been other small winning tickets that could be cashed at other places ... $20, $50, $100 and so forth.

    They asked for the terminal to be reactivated ... probably without the executor knowing about it. I would think there would be no money left laying around to cash any lottery tickets ... the executor would have had it secured for the estate, perhaps into a bank account.

    I don't know, it still seems very strange ... the lottery reactivating a terminal without checking with the executor ... unless they were not aware the owner had died.

    A lot of questions ...

    ...

    Agreed, this was very strange.  But from the lotteries point of view they had a 'client' which went inactive.  Then the 'client' contacts them and says please re-activate.  But, once inactive wouldn't the lottery say 'please send back all scratch off's'?  And have a list of what they sent them which were not active?  At least that is what you would think they would have.  So maybe they are too stupid to TRACK things like this!
