Lottery Ticket in Benicia Worth Nearly $800,000 Still Unclaimed

It expires at the end of March.  It doesn't take that long to find financial advice I hope.  This was for the drawing way back in September, the article says.

      1)The buyer of the ticket, is careless and lost the ticket! or it's left in a pants -pocket that is washed now it's tissue paper...unreadable, oh the horror!! Or he/she never took time to checked...something happened in his or her life that was devastating (severe Illness, tragic death in the family, bad divorce) A number of things, other than the person been a moron.

      forget what "they" say about youWhat you say about you?...

      Now, does it count??

          HAHA I wish I could say OH MY GOD!!!!! I think I have that ticket. Yes I remember now. I was on my way home from the store and ran in the gas station to buy a ticket and stashed it in my glovebox. Yep it must be buried in there! LOL

          A few years ago people at work told me about a guy (who used to work there) that had purchased a lottery ticket and was on his way to work when he heard the winning numbers over the radio. Thinking his ticket was a loser he threw it in the dumpster. Come to find out there was a mistake in the numbers announced and his ticket was in fact a winner. I can't remember now the dollar amount but it was alot of money. Anyway he dug thru that dumpster and couldn't find the ticket. OUCH!

          Maybe the person hid the ticket and now they can't remember where they put it.

              Some time a out of town visitor to CA happens to buy lottery tickets while visiting and forget about it; relatives should remember the exact time when a ticket was purchased and figure it out--I would not doubt in this case this might be the story--to go unclaimed for so long...

                Somebody might be waiting for their divorce to get settled first. At least they'll have fun for a little while til the other one finds out.

                  That would work with a scratch-off but the draw date on a pick game is a dead giveaway as to whether the winning was during the marriage or not.

                      If I remember right, rdgrnr, that happened before. I think it was discussed here. The outcome was that a court decided the jackpot gets divvied up according to  the date of the drawing, not the date of the divorce.

                      Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                      Lep

                      There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                          Last year a $10,000,000 illinois lotto ticket went through unclaimed.

                          http://illinoislottery.com/subsections/Unclaimed.asp

                          Kind of interesting on what is on the list....

                          Lotto ticket from 1/10 is still unclaimed.  ($4,250,000)

                          I would have been at their front door with bells on...
