        I didn't vote because 'Within 12 hours following the draw' wasn't one of the options. 

        Big jackpots, unclaimed prizes, rolls, and high speed races from Jal, New Mexico to Albuquerque leaving a trail of dead cows, elk, coyotes and the occasional space alien (Roswell) would add excitement to the game.

        I'd almost move to Jal for that.

              Depends.

              When they're in carcass-form, as with the Roswellians, they give every appearance of being in this dimension, though interred in Lenin-like freezers in Area 51 for the duration of deadness.

              However, during the lifecycle stages that don't include being dead they are in various other dimensions that must remain un-named and un-numbered for the unannointed.

              Sorry

                      I agree with the short-term time limit. You check your tickets after the drawing, divorce your family and friends, and quit your job. How long can this take? 24 hours?

                        "...,divorce your family and friends..."

                        Now, that's plain good planning for the inevitable!

                        There's just no way my relatives and friends could tolerate me as a millionaire, and I'd think visa versa as well.
