Weekly Grand is a state draw game.  Matching 5 numbers wins ya a thousand bucks a week for a year.

There's also a second chance draw where a losing ticket wins $100 a month for a year.

However, there have been several second chance drawings where the winner was disqualified, but they did not draw a new winner, thereby saving themselves $5200 and decreasing what I thought was a guaranteed game payout.    Glad I don't waste my money on this game.  I'd be upset if I had my ticket in a second chance draw that wasn't even given away.

Is this the way other states do it too, or is Idaho just cheap?

    There must be something in the fine print that says they are not required to pick another winner.

    I was curious what does somebody need to do to be disqualified?

    Did they have a lien?

      I dunno.  I assumed they didn't have possession of the ticket they entered.  Either they didn't know they had to save it, or they made a typo when entering it.

      I don't know what else could disqualify them.

        Best you find out, lest you get disqualified too.

          Ha ha.  I would, but I don't play it.  Used to once in a while, but I don't really trust the Idaho lottery, so only play games that they don't administer.

          Okay, just out of curiosity, I asked them.  Wanna take bets on whether they even answer?

            They should answer.  After all the last job I slaved at, "customer care" seemed to be pretty important.

            Sure I will take bets.  I will probably win since it appears your general betting strategy does not bode well.

            No offense but this is truly out of character for you it seems.  What do I win?  Another 6 months of platinum membership?
