Insider BuzzInsider Buzz: Chase the Ace lottery dispute settled between aunt and nephewRating:

A family dispute over a $1.2 million lottery prize won in July was settled Monday after a five-hour settlement conference.

In July, Barbara Reddick of Guysborough and her nephew, Tyrone MacInnis of Glace Bay were announced as the winners of the $1.2 million prize in the Chase the Ace lottery held in Margaree Forks.

Immediately following the presentation, Reddick served verbal notice to her nephew that she was taking him to court to claim the full prize. They each received $611,319.50.

(See Aunt threatens to sue nephew over lottery jackpot, Lottery Post, Jul. 14, 2018.)

The first stage of the court process resulted in an order against MacInnis not to spend his portion of the win until a final rendering by the court.

Both sides were referred to a settlement process in hopes their case could be settled among themselves without court instruction.

As a result of Monday's meeting, the two sides agreed that MacInnis will now receive $350,000 with Reddick claiming the remainder.

Lawyers Adam Rodgers (representing Reddick) and Candee McCarthy (representing MacInnis) declined comment Monday.

Reddick maintained she was the sole winner arguing she e-transferred $100 to MacInnis to buy her tickets and that he could write his name on her tickets for good luck.

Reddick is a retired supply technician from the Canadian Armed Forces while MacInnis is a first-year university student.

Reddick claimed MacInnis put his home phone number on the tickets without her instruction or permission.

MacInnis is holding  a larger part of the ceremonial check. For Reddick to finally get a big win, she dosen't look happy.

        Reddick made a $350,000.00 mistake. Of course, this is all pre-tax.

              l think Tyrone came around to the fact that $350K is more than he could ever get in a handout. There is enough rubles here, to payoff his university bill & still have walking around money. Some guys just step in it.

                  Nikkicute,  You are correct. There is no tax on lottery winnings in Canada, Australia, and the United Kingdom.

                      • Don't chase the numbers you play.
                      • Play only numbers you've already played, plus however many random picks.
                      • But, ALWAYS the regular numbers you play.  This will make you a winner, not a chaser.
                                 (so far, though, I've yet to win any significant lotto prize)
                      • Oh, but always know where your tickets are, as well as your ticket's deadline.

                        Why didn't she buy the tickets herself?  Why involve her nephew at all?  Good he got something for being her good luck charm.

                          Never trust a relative then.  Get it certified and in writing.  Waste of time in court.   Seriously the lawyers  ground to make more money on this

                          I love pecans and making sales with commissions.   

                          My amazon store is just like the lottery.

                            Correct, Lottery winners in Canada, AND EUROPE, areNOT taxed on their lottery winnings. That's how it should be globally..... makes me sick what goes on in America with Lottery winnings and taxes. You pay for a lottery ticket in the US, which about half already goes to the state on just the sale of tickets... then you are sucked dry another approximately 50% after you win!!! WTF???!!! That's like a net 75% loss for lottery winners when you combine the amount taken from sales and the amount taken after a win in taxes... definitely not fair... 

                            I hope there comes a crypto lottery that the govt can't tax not because it doesn't want to but because it just can't because it's actually impossible!
