This afternoon I stopped by the store where I normally buy my lottery tickets, and found out that they sold a NJ Pick 6 ticket worth $2.5 million on Dec. 29th.  Very cool!

The NJ Lottery sent them a letter of congratulations, which they have out on the counter.

The clerk didn't think that the ticket was claimed yet.  I checked the NJ site and they didn't have a press release for the winner, so I guess they're still out there.

(No, it wasn't me; I wish it was!)

    Makes your heart stop for a minute, doesn't it. It happened to me when the store that I purchased my tickets at, Red Rocket in Fort Mill, SC,  sold a Powerball ticket worth $88 Million dollars. Very exciting to know you picked a winning store, even though it wasn't you that time!!

      Yes that is exciting!  Of course I've invested a little time rummaging around for lost lottery tickets.  Since the person has not yet claimed the prize it's fun to imagine.

            I think it was actually a $3.5M jackpot on 12/29.

                I don't know if I'd say — I'd have to wait and see what recommendations the financial and legal team gives me. Wink

                  I saw the actual prize printout from the lottery machine for the drawing, and I recall seeing something like  "25xxxxx".  Perhaps there were two winners, and it was showing the half-prize amount.  NJ does that when there is more than one winner.

                    You know, I have actually thought of this. Since I am still quite a newbie, I would probably go to the library and sign in under a new different name and make a quick post. Basically, just to let people know that someone from the site did win a big one. And maybe try to get some advice too (again, being a newbie).
