Hey LottoBux, Yes I would take the time to plan before i claimed the ticket. But have you ever seen someone claim the prize on March 10th and the lottery hold off on publicizing their story until June 29th?
That was nice of the NY Lottery to do that but I've never seen it happen before.
Has anyone ever seen that happen before?
I do remember there was a winner in NY in Sheephead (?) Bay who claimed very late, the PB or MM site years later didn't show claim status as "claimed" or expired" but as "pending", no info given on the winner.
Noise-gate found an article on it when I brought it up, but I don't remember where. The whole story seemed very hush-hush. Think it was a 130M$ jackpot.
It was this one: http://www.powerball.com/powerball/winners/2013/NY_Nikolayev111613.shtml
But like I said the "Winner's Stories" section didn't show any info on it until 2015 or so.
I think this post is about that winner too:
Initially, the claim time passed but he still got his money? How?
