 Well I truly hope he finds that winning ticket, I think that is what a good friend would wish on another good friend and if he reads this I hope he will remember that good friends always share..I will take ohh just a million dollars, tax free of course, and please make that in hundreds, fifties and twenties.  Neiman Marcus here I come!Lover

    Interesting to see what happens. Might be a hoax. Whenever the jackpot is that big everyone "claims" to have a winning ticket. If is indeed true I hope they find it. Lottery commission will not pay unless there is proof, otherwise every Tom, Dick & Harry will claim to have lost a ticket.

        Karinda, it's just way too early in the morning for you to have me LOL and shaking my head at the same time!  Green laughNo Nod

        Management, thanks for posting that video.  I don't even know what to say about this one except it's not the first time and it won't be the last!  If this guy's legit, then I guess he'll hire an attorney to get CTL to review his evidence (the store tape, time of purchase, etc) and declare him the winner - - - but I just don't see that happening.  Correct me if I'm wrong but most states consider lottery tickets bearer instruments which means as long as that ticket is out there - anyone who finds it can sign the back, turn it in, and rightfully collect the money.

        For signature-size amounts, you'll need to know some things about the ticket that only the true buyer would know. Otherwise, what's to stop someone from strong-arming a winner's ticket and claiming the prize?

          So what would happen if the ticket is never found or claimed?

          It goes back to the state ..

            How do you know that you won without the ticket and not knowing what machine sold the ticket; isnt thats  where the great power  outage was for that drawing , maybe no one won and the prize will go back to the game pool; not Conn.  prize money came from all states .  If i had a winning jackpot of that amount I dont beleive I could talk about it.   JUST SAYING

              I think the Guy is sitting on that ticket untill he makes up his mind what he wants to do with it.  He has a year to claim it, he is probaly talking to finacial advisers I think that is what I would do take my time and figure out what I wanted to do first.
