Gas station employee stole $850 in lottery tickets, police said
The title of this article is inaccurate. She didn't steal $850 worth of lottery tickets!
It's a surprise to me that she didn't obtain more than $850 in winnings/payments, from the lottery headquarters, from what was probably a lot of scratch off lottery tickets.
Regardless, sure not worth a serious theft judgement record that will follow her for the rest of her LONG work life, etc.!

Police official tried to cash in stolen lottery ticket
US should offer player registration systems. It would help players protect their tickets against loss or theft. The state lotteries could also generate additional revenue from such systems.
It's a win win situation!

Would you claim your Jackpot winnings through a Trust or Not?
Maybe the best thing to do is wait around 3-4 months to claim your winnings. There is nothing wrong with setting up a Trust. But be very careful as to who you put in charge of that Trust as there are cases of theft involved.

Calif. man knew he won $1M but lost the lottery ticket
This is BS, if you are clearly identifiable as the person that bought the ticket and the winner, you should get the money. This should be a good test case for a lawsuit against the lotteries. There are many scenarios where you could lose the ticket through no fault of your own, theft of your wallet, house fire, theft of your car etc. I believe that guy that won in Canada and did not know was notified by the lottery that he won because they had some sort of registration system which is good.

Lottery windfalls can buy anything except anonymity
People here always say it's very unlikely, but I don't believe that at all. Identity theft is already a huge problem, that's without being a confirmed halfbillionaire. Look at the Sony data leak and how many people already ran into problems with that.

I googled... can credit cards be used for gambling
it's the banks of credit cards that don't allow it for some obvious reasons
