    Just imagine if it would have been the top prize.

      Or just an average losing ticket. If the ticket was the jackpot winner, it would be simple because there would be no other jackpot winning tickets.

        Thumbs DownThe players always get screwed. The lottery should have the responsibility to pay if they determine that the ticket is not a forgery. It is not the players fault that they cannot get their act together. Why should the players pay for the lottery's misprint or screw up?. That's an issue between the lotteries and their contractors!!!.

          "Why should the players pay for the lottery's misprint or screw up?"

          Lottery players never lose anything when this sort of thing happens. They just don't (usually) win anything. The why is spelled out clearly in the rules. Tickets have to be intact, with all the proper info, not printed in error, and so on. If you're not willing to take the risk of getting a ticket that happens to be defective and only getting a refund of the ticket's cost then buying lottery tickets may entail more risk than you're willing to accept. There's a simple solution for that.

            The state of michigan has a way to resolve issues like this.  I felt that Michigan owed me 24 bucks and when they refused to make good I sued them in small claims court. The state responded by by sending an assistant attorney general all the way from Lansing to Rogers City to fight the claim.  I figured that they spent at least 5k defending it.when all I asked was for a $24 coupon. The judge appreciate my legal arguements, BUT, the state has a law that you can only sue them in state claims court. I told the judge I had more common sense than to hire a lawyer and travel 300 miles one way for a $24 claim. The judge then asked the AG if they wanted to settle the matter because I had created a lot of negative publicity.(my story appeared in2 northern Michigan newspapers) the AG said she was not empowered to make an offer. Funny how our state can waste so much money to save $24.

                    Dear Celeste Davis,  Please stick with Power Ball and Mega Millions. You could change your life. No headaches with these two games. These are equal opportunity games.Noel

                    My view as well. I've never had a problem on MM or PB, AND imagine I've won a little more than 50 bucks with them, but it's taken a good 18 or 19 years to do it, which I've fortunately been paid.

                    I want that prize #1 or #2.

                    I'm so sorry for the Celeste, but I'm glad it wasn't a more significant prize. 

                    And thank you for the lesson about scratch offs.   I won't play them either, in my state OR the state I go to, to play my lotto every week.
