          Really, how would you ever know who is the real ticket owner. For all the numbers I am sure every Joe Smo could think of some combo that fit their family and think they just case to keep it. If it's a quick pick the answer is 100% keep it, sign it, claim it. If it's hand picked numbers then I still sign as it is a bear intrument but then I think I might wait to see or hear anything before proceediing.

            First thing I'd do is sign it. I'd wait a couple of weeks and see if anybody came forth or anything on the news. If no response, it's all mine. If someone did really lose it I would split it with them, because with out there numbers I wouldn't have the money and without me finding it they wouldn't have any.

              has anyone seen that movie where this happens? The old black guy loses his wallet containing some money and a lottery ticket. ANother younger guy finds the wallet, takes the lottery ticket and calls the owner of the wallet to pick it up (only the wallet with no ticket in it). Something happens outside young guys apartment and police tell everyone to stay in the apt for the time being. Young guy finds out the ticket is a winner. Younger guy finds out the Older guy chooses his own # and its been the same # for years. Younger guys friends are over and they always play poker using their single lottery tickets for betting. THey force the younger guy to lay out the winning ticket for the game and the older guy notices its his #'s on the ticket. Bunch of drama, older guy makes the younger guy feel bad without actually saying what is going on flat out. Then another friend catches on that its a winning ticket, plans to kill the older guy so they can get the money, cop comes in to question the guys to see if they saw incident outside the apt building, younger guy is scared for the old mans life, tells the cop what is going on, give the ticket to the cop and tells cop to give it to old man and make sure the old man gets home safely. Cop takes ticket and keeps it for himself!

              That would suuck!!!!

              Well......... i'm gonna win and that's all there is to it! :D

                I think we all agree, if it's a quick pick there is no REAL way to prove the owner, so we'd all keep that one. How can you not? No way to verify owner as no receipt, no proof, etc... BUT with hand picked numbers I would be cautious, I know I play the same ones every week and there enough evidence from old tickets that would agree with me so those I would not be so quick to cash in. SIgn it, yes, cash it, depends what my lawyers says. LOL. Cheers.

                  if it is not signed  ( there is no proof)

                  the lottery official only reconize the person with the ticket

                  P.S always sign you tickets
