We have a 3rd $10 LFL winner

Congratulation to the winner in Sacramento!

They posted a picture of the ticket. I don't think they have done it before.

Yes, and of course they hide the ticket pack number, otherwise they'd give away which batch it came from. (if it's even a real ticket...not a fake like last time ;)

      once again, ca lottery failed to update their LFL top prize remaining table. Makes you think about the accuracy of the other games they have.

        once again, ca lottery failed to update their LFL top prize remaining table. Makes you think about the accuracy of the other games they have.

        Are we sure it's the 3rd $10 LFL top prize? It could be the 2nd, which was shown in table as claimed on 3/20.

        The way I think it's supposed to work, is the prize gets claimed on a certain day, then they increment the prize claimed table on the website by the next day, and then do a press release writeup a day or so later.(if the winner agrees, sometimes they do not do a writeup)

        For the 1st $10 LFL win, the press release was 3/8, so the claim had to be before that, but it went almost a week before they updated the prize available table on the 3/14. (interestingly, I reminded them on 3/13 about this being a week late and then it magically shows up)

        Then the 2nd top prize was incremented on 3/20 in the table, and we see the press release on 3/21. But notice they don't say which prize it was. Remember they used to do something like this for the $1,000,000 prizes in the past, like "there are still 27 top prizes left in the $250M spectacular game..." Not so anymore. In fact, they got their facts and numbers wrong in the press releases, stating "Four lucky players will win the top prize," for the $1 and $2 LFL games, when we see that they re-ordered to increase from 4 top prizes to 6 and 7 respectively.

        CA Lottery: FAIL!!!

        I reminded them about the 1st $2 LFL top prize still not showing up in the table as of 3/22, which was said in the press release to be bough on 3/15, so it was claimed between 3/15 and 3/20 press release. Let's see if that one magically shows up now.

          I have been playing 1M Fortune from several stores and never won anything. Not even a free ticket.

          That's unusual, you should have had at least 1 hit if you played about 10 tickets or so. Maybe you have plenty of people at those stores chasing wins and leaving you with more losers. You could try other stores, or buy 2-3 at a time to compensate.

          I haven't done great with $1MFortune, only slightly above where I should be according to the stats, but this is through couple hundred tickets.

          Got 2 the other day and had a rare sequential hits, not likely on this game, but was only ticket values:

          $10, Tkt

          Also got 5 $2 LFL and got 50% back, which is typical:

          0, 0, 0, 0, $5

          And then since I made the good decision of quitting playing Shamrock the other day, I took that $10 and instead bought a couple of $5 Mega crossword, and that turned out to be a very lucky decision that day:

            Yep... Sure enough, today the 1st $2 LFL top prize shows up in the table the day after I bugged them: 1 of 7 claimed, 6 remaining.

            So it's likely you can't rely on the accuracy/timeliness of the available prizes updates, and that's probably just how they like it...

                as long as the bar code is still intact, you probably could still cash it. Otherwise, I don't know.

                I am sorry about what happened Unhappy

                    Wow, unfortunate mistake, but nice hit! That's a 1-in-4286 prize, which would be like a $500 win on a $5 game.

                    Maybe you can try and take it to a friendly retailer. They tear the ticket up anyway after they cash it, so as long as they can read the codes to get the redemption credit, that's what matters, right?

                    Or you can try and mail it in with a note about the accident if the retailer refuses it.

                        The 12 digit number is intact plus the 6 digit+3 digit serial number is also intact. On the back side the bar code is almost complete except the last 2 digit which came off the tear but I do have the 4 pieces of the ticket.. of the 3, what number are the most important ones to claim?

                          Just returned from the Van Nuys CA local office.. They gave me a tape to stick all the 4 pieces...and also asked me to fill a claim form.. They also gave me a notepad to write 2 lines saying that I accidently tore the lottery ticket ..Handed them my drivers license and they took a copy of everything and gave me copy of it...they took the originals and said I will get a check in 4 to 6 weeks. I will post pictures of VN local office in next post just for kicks..
