Luck is still on MacInnis with $350,000. I did not know Australia, Canada and United Kingdom did not tax their lotto winners. America should be ashame of itself.

    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.

    I just thought about this.  What if the nephew promised his friends some winnings too!   Something isn't right about this and with if they had any agreement to this.

    I love pecans and making sales with commissions.   

    My amazon store is just like the lottery.

        The point most people are missing is the fact this happened in Nova Scotia where laws are much different than in the U.S. And from what I read, it's not exactly a country or providence run lottery. Both names were on the ticket, Bernice Curley, chair of the Margaree Forks Chase the Ace committee checked with the province's alcohol and gaming division, and gave them both check for an equal amount. 

        The strange part is after Riddick said "Reddick said she will never speak with her nephew again "in this life or the next," adding, "He's dead to me. I don't want nothing to do with him.", MacInnis got 28% of the prize. Maybe her lawyer knew a judge would give him half?

            Australia goes one better in giving winners the option of anonymity.  Win-win.  I remember only one person who came forward to announce she won.  I think it was $15million.  Everybody I talked to said she was an idiot for doing so.  No idea what happened to her after, whether she was swamped by "long-lost" relatives or dodgy salespeople but I doubt she was left alone.  Some people love the attention, I guess.
