    It says, "Chances are this isn't a winner but thanks for playing anyway."

      I'm glad you started this thread, Coin Toss, as I've always wondered too.

      North Carolina:

      "All tickets, transactions, drawings, winners, and prizes are subject to North Carolina Education Lottery (NCEL) rules and regulations, and applicable law. Ticket purchasers must be at least 18 years old. Please sign - the ticket is a bearer instrument until signed. All online game prizes must be claimed within 180 days of the drawing in accordance with NCEL Prize Payment Policy."

      However, NC keeps changing their website. They used to have a sentence about how you do not have to get your photo taken when you pick up your money, but that's no longer on the site. Neither is the comment they used to have about LLC's were allowed in most instances. So my question is - are those still allowed and they just don't want to advertise it anymore? Or have the rules changed?

      Personally, I go to the website and copy/save the rules once a year so I can see the changes.

        Good points, dk1421.

        Maybe NC is making the rules up as they go along and people win.....also known as 'dirty pool'.

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


        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.

          This is a kind of spinoff on PeteLawson's Claiming Anonymously thread.

          What does it say on the back of your tickets in regard to claiming and press conferences and release of information?

          One reply per state would do it, and would love to hear from those in the states that allow remaining anonymous.


          This is part of the staement on the back of Illinois Lottery tickets:

          Important Information

          Players must be at least 18 years of age. This Lottery ticket is a bearer instrument, please sign immediately..........

          ......The holder of this ticket agrees to particiapte in interviews with Lottery public relations personnel and news media and grants permission to use his/her name and likeness in Lottery advertising. All Lottery tickets, transactions and winners are subject to applicable Illinois laws, Illinois lottery rules, and directives of the Lottery Superintendent.

          "The (add state name) Lottery game rules and regulations and (add state name) state law apply to all games, tickets, transactions, drawings, and prizes"

          When I posted that on the other thread, it was almost verbatim what is printed on the back of Kentucky Lottery tickets. It's interesting that on the back of almost every state lottery ticket it says basically the same thing. There is a discussion about a player finding a $1 million flawed ticket in the News Forum, 2200 flawed tickets are out there, but on the back of each of those tickets it says "game rules and regulations apply to all tickets".

          If a 94-year-old Massachusetts woman can't win a lawsuit to get the cash value of a $5.4 million Megabucks jackpot annuity, who can win a lawsuit against any lottery?
