    The checks got returned due to a security code not being on the check. Funds were availalbe so that is not the issue

      lottery will pay for any bank fees that occurred because of the checks.

      at lest they cover the damage, just normal idiots in charge messing up story

       

      however i like to add, lottery is one of must trusted ways to get paid

      for instant, did u know in PB  the annuity

      is a contract of u and ALL the state lotteries promise to PAY u x amount 

      even if the treasury bills fail,they invest the money into special  t bills............ the states MUST pay u,

      u got not only fed govt with t bills covering the investment

      but ever freaking lottery backing your payments if investment fails

      to bad the interest rates rates are a sick JOKE, cash atm wins 100% of time, if u want to get richer that is

      if this was like old 7/8% rates thro then 3% the annuity we got now, my god the annuity with all cash INVESTED BEFORE TAXES would be godsend 

      u not only make insane amount of cash but have it backed up by one of must profitable  groups ever, 

      a state lottery is just a money printing press, its so much profit   . how can u think, the lottery such as IL cant pay?

      they are big earner just like other states, they can cover all prizes.....................

      No bees, no honey.

        Thanks for clearing that up, Jill34786.

        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.

          I will always choose the 'cash' option for this reason. Give my money all up front. Just in case.

          Play to win!

              I Agree! If they can screw up how the check is printed, I'm sure they can screw up having the money.

                LOL they still would have paid you with a check....So if you were a winner you still would have had the same problem....I hope the lottery commission isnt paying anyone out of petty cash LOL
