Thinking of...

 

2/4/16

State of California will be the winner if no one claims the prize by Thursday.

Hope it wasn't some military personnel who was deployed and injured?

Maybe the winner is aware of the prize defaulting to state and has not bothered with collecting it for

some kind of fear, that this amount of money would do to their well being.

Is there a technical term for "Jackpot-phobia" or "millionaire-phobia" ?

I looked it up.  It could be Plutophobia (fear of wealth).  And here I thought that was just a fear of Disney characters...

        For what it is worth just read an article on Facebook.  It said Brandy Milliner is suiing the CA lottery because he said they will not pay him the $63 million.  It said ticket was damaged and could not be validated.  Who knows?  Maybe tickets pasted together??

         

        Todd, can you verify this story?

         

        Thank you.

        One of the news articles includes a picture of the ticket. It looks heat damaged, and is completely illegible, so much so that I can't even tell where the numbers were.
