Why are we making a big deal over illegals.  So if they hit big deal, it least it might make their life better.  Isn't that what America is about.

       So if you buy a ticket from another state through the US mail which is illegal and let's say you are a legal citzen can you keep and cash the ticket in that state where it came from?

       What if you are an illegal (from any country)  get a ticket sent to you through the US mail which is illegal from another illegal can you keep and cash that ticket in that state from where it came from?

       Maybe Columbo might have to come out of retirement for this.

        I think it was just a question as to what would happen.  I don't think the person who started this thread had expressed any ill feelings towards illegals, they simply asked what would happen if they won.

          We need Columbo just to figure out what you're asking.

             So if you buy a ticket from another state through the US mail which is illegal and let's say you are a legal citzen can you keep and cash the ticket in that state where it came from?  MAYBE, MAYBE NOT lets say i buy a ticket from a friend in chicago he sends it to me in the mail. I win a prize so i pack my bag and go to chicago to cash the ticket. When i fill out the paper work to claim the ticket i have to put my legal address on the claim form. They might want to know how or where i purchased said ticket. Of cource i'm not going to tell them i had a friend mail it to me so i had better be prepaired if they ask any stupid questions. If this winning ticket is for a small amount then i don't think it will be a problem. But they might ask where i was staying at the time of purchase. So i would have to get an ok from the friend to use his/her address. Lots of travelers buy tickets in different states so there shouldn't be any problems cashing tickets. Although they (the lottery claim people) might ask to see hotel, food, or gas receipts to prove that you were indeed a traveler or visitor to that state where you bought said tickets and some dates to prove the fact that you were indeed there.     

             What if you are an illegal (from any country)  get a ticket sent to you through the US mail which is illegal from another illegal can you keep and cash that ticket in that state from where it came from? Same answer applies here you had better be prepaired to give any information as to how when where etc.

                Yea there mailing address is on there website..... but that aint how it's going to happen. You will have to go pick up the ticket wherever it was purchased from. I'ts against the law for them to mail you your mega tickets. And as of right now i don't know of any legit place where you can buy a megamillion ticket online.

                And this gueston is really good because if you do win they say it's ok for you to fill out the claim form and mail it to them to claim the prize. I don't get that at all. However if i won a substancial amount and wanted to cash the ticket i would borrow the money to go there in person. Imagin how you would feel if the winning ticket got lost in the mail.

                  Here's a general warning that I'll put out there, because it appears some people are using what I consider to be a VERY dangerous web site.

                  Any web site that mails you lottery tickets is involving YOU in a Federal offense.  If the post office sees that you are receiving lottery tickets in the mail, you may get thrown in the slammer.  It's that simple.

                  If you're using a web site that mails you lottery tickets, STOP USING IT IMMEDIATELY.

                  P.S.  Do NOT post the address of the web site.  If you have a question about any particular site, send ME a PM containing the URL of the site, and I will tell you about it.

                    Why would the canadians run here? certainly not for a doctor's appointment...

                    Playing more than one ticket per game is betting against yourself.
