What takes 8 weeks to send a check?

LOL

 

You would think with all that money CA has it wouldn't be hard to stamp an envelope and send you a piece of paper.

I just looked at the CA Lotto website - you like you state line up for games?

Nice you got that Super Lotto state game with the 25 mil - our state jackpot game just got reset and its not growing because no one is buying LOL

How long does it take to receive lottery winnings in California?
To collect your prize, just follow the simple claim process for the type of prize you won. After your claim is processed at Lottery Headquarters in Sacramento, you'll receive a check in the mail in about 6 to 8 weeks.

    Our state has the worst turn around time. We have only 10 claim offices for a population of about 40 million -- probably more like 45 million if you count the illegals who play too. 

    Well, good for Idaho that they're are still raking in the compulsive gambler bucks.

          I Agree! with the lack of adequate claim offices across the State CJ. l recall driving down to LA this past Dec and we were diverted off Highway 5 due to snow & accidents blocking the road, so we ended up in this town in the middle of nowhere.l recall it had quite a sizable pit stop, a store with lots of James Dean memorabilia inside, and most of all it had lottery terminals inside this joint. As l exited the place l recall thinking " if you from this place and you won the lottery, how far do you have to drive to a claim office?"l bought a couple of tickets anyway-  l mean you can look in any direction and all you see is cactus and brush.

          It's one of those places where if you have a girlfriend, you hang on for dear life, cause nothing new is coming through or settling there...

            Yeah Kenny. For instance, if a few guys with machetes came up to me and asked " Did you see a guy with a beard, heavy mustache and a lit cigar in his mouth pass by here?"  l would most certainly point them in the opposite direction.

              Phew! I am glad you would do that for me!

              I was expecting you to hold out your hand and say "gee guys I don't know, maybe I did see him - maybe you could jog my memory?"

                Idaho has some great 5~pick game options. I wish my state offered games like Idaho has, sigh... Frown

                  Then we should rent a car, go down there, scoop up all those jackpots with our super-Wisconsin-number-systems and leave the Idaho holding an empty sack!

                    Remember when Brad Duke won the powerball. Haven't heard from him in years. 

                    No doubt he's doing good with his winnings. A Man with Common Sense !! 

                    Ready To Win ....

                      LOL! I just want the chance to play more 5 ~ pick games than simply Badger 5. Don't get me wrong, it's a good game, but Idaho shows there are more options than a simple straight 5 number draw. It would be fun I'm sure.

                        This part of their game looks fun:

                          First time hearing about this guy - so wait - he won the PB and is spending money trying to win it again?

                          I saw his name on a winner's list for the raffle a few years after he won the big one, so he's still spending $10 trying to win a million.

                          I have no idea how many tickets he bought, but at that time I was still buying about 10 a year and never won a dime.
