      right now want a liability report from NYL to see how many tickets were left outstanding as well as a lawyer

      even if it was slow selling need an explanation why a game was removed w only 1 top prize claimed

        Well doesn't the lottery know whether a top prize was activated in a book? Like some people know what stores get a winner, and some know what book has it, but somehow, ny lottery as a whole will know if some idiot bought and never claimed a ticket. 

        Royal riches I almost threw out a FTY once. It might be ... three others did too for jackpots. Sounds dumb but it could be true.

          they sometimes discontinue tix if they slow selling to make room for the newer ones - think this might have been the case w all the outstanding prizes left

          but yes people throw out winners all the time - this game was hard to scratch and hard to see the numbers as well
