assuming it was an honest mistake and you agreed that you where going to share the tickets.

both sign the backs of each ticket and split them.  now you're going to need ea other incase any win.

2014 = -1016; 2015= -1409; 2016  = -1171; 2017 = ?  TOT =  -3596

keno historic = -2291 ; 2015= -603; 2016= -424; 2017 = ? TOT = - 3318

    So you buy some quick picks at the local quick stop or wherever...and as you turn to leave you accidentially bump into someone who has also bought a few quick picks....all the tickets fall to the floor and become mingled...you don't know which are yours and which are theirs so after trying to sort it out, you give up, split the tickets and just tell them if you hit you'll split it with them and same goes for them...so after getting their name and number you leave believing that you'll never hear from them again.....The next day you check your tickets and low and behold you have hit the jackpot!!! Do you keep your word and split with the stranger you made a deal with?? Or run with the money and act like you don't know them......As in the famous words of John Quionnes......What would you do????

    wow, Well, I fill out playslips, so I would know which ones were mine, I always tuck them in my lottery envelope before , I walk away.

    Maybe the question should be, If you bump into someone, would you take steps to be more careful next time ?

    The answer to your original question, H*******llllll  NO! Your clumsiness, my gain.

      First of all, a print out from the clerk would have verified who has the correct tickets. The tickets can be sorted out days later by entering the codes on the tickets. If you don't keep your promise, and you are not in a State where you cannot  remain anonymous when you claim your winnings , the person with whom you bumped into would have a good case in court if the ticket proved to be his or hers.

        I was in Texas this past week and a lady bought a $20.00 scratch off ticket and left the store.  She came back in moments later and told the clerk I think I won something will you check my ticket.  Well he checked it and counted out $2000.00 to the lady.  I asked him to see the ticket(i'm nosey like that) and he said no it was none of my business.  Now do you honestly think that lady won $2000.00?  So when did a corner store start paying out that kind of money?  Go figure.

        Maryland has super retailers that cash prices up to $5000.00.

        Your have to have your social security number and ID on hand and fill out the claim forms, but you can get your money right in your local store.

        Of course, that W2 form will hit your mailbox  in no time reminding you of your duty to pay your State, Local and Federal taxes on the money you have worked hard to win.

          There was a similar story in LP news a few months ago about a California woman who was giving away lottery tickets and money at a gas station who claim she gave away a winner to a guy who claimed he brought the tickets himself at about the same time she was doing her thing.  She was going to court to get a share of his winnings but print-out of the store records couldn't convince anyone she had a case.

            Main question is actually, are you an honest person, and if you made a promise, would you act on it even if big money are involved?

              Another good idea. I need to get a lottery envelope instead of just tossing them in my handbag.

                In Ohio the time stamp is to the nearest second so you know which order your own tickets were printed.

                Every tickets has the year, month, date, hour, minute and second it was printed with the terminal number.

                Tennessee prints the date and that's it.

                  There is a time stamp on every ticket.  If I bought mine first it would be easy to figure out.  Common sense.  Re-read my original answer and realize I DID think it through.  So my answer doesn't change.

                  Time stamp won't really help they can still say it was their ticket...and then and only then would there be need for video tape...

                    That would work if I said you filled out playslips but first line of the question was....."you bought quick picks"

                        That situation would  not happen to me because I buy my own picks on the same ticket that I get QP's on.  Like a two line ticket with one line my pick and one line QP.  I always fill out playslips with my set of numbers then a QP so I don't think their would be a mix up.  Normally because I buy my tickets early for the drawing and no body usually plays until the drawing gets closer.-weshar75

                          I don't think it would be dishonest of a lottery winner not sharing his winnings with a stranger even if the stranger thought such an agreement was made. 

                          People are alway joking with lottery players saying if you win remember me which means absolutely nothing if they really win.

                              In Texas prizes over $599 and up to and including $1,000,000 must be claimed at a claim center or by mail. She may well have gotten ripped off. Or she didn't want to claim it at a claim center so she made a deal with the retailer.
