...someone won all this money and didn't come forward to claim it?

 

The Florida Lottery has been posting about an unclaimed Fantasy 5 ticket for the past several weeks.  The sole winner of the June 26th  jackpot will not be getting $212,584 if the prize isn't claimed by tomorrow night.

I just want to win any jackpot, even a shared one.  So, although this has no effect whatsoever on my life, it does boggle my mind just a little.

    It really does boggle one's mind. I'm checking my tics as soon as they post on Tx lottery's web site.

    I think this had to be someone who plays infrequently and just played that one time on a whim and forgot about it. Or that person died and no one found the ticket. Who knows. Amazing.

      Kissimmee is very close to Orlando, and a lot of Disney World visitors stay there.

        Yeah it's annoying, but who knows, maybe the person who bought the ticket died Eek or lost it. Nah, I'm just kidding. I'm guessing whoever it was, just bought the ticket and forgot about it.

          My family and I have been there a few times. In fact we were talking about seeing DW again. There's a young man that works in my store that used to work at DW with his wife. His wife now manages a Disney store at a mall in the DFW area now. He said DW changed a lot over the last several years and has a lot of new attractions.
