    You have two Winn Dixie stores on Tamiami Trail right down the road from one another. Is it possible the lady meant the one at Promenades Mall to the south? The Lottery rep is only going to pull the info for the region, and unless she gave you an exact address / store number, the difference between North Port and Port Charlotte might be pretty irrelevant to her. It'd be worth checking the other store.

    Also, there are eight Winn Dixie stores in the general area (each one 3-7 miles apart). I'm not sure how the Lottery feels about such activity, but if a number of them are managed by the same local entity it's not implausible that one store might have traded the 100X book over to another. Books do also shuffle around, get misplaced, get stolen. Someone else could have come in, asked for it, had it activated, and bought the whole book between the time when you called and the time when you got there (with a different clerk present). There's a lot of possible fault beyond just the Lottery.

    I'm sure if you email that same office they can send you a list for the whole region.

Thats not cool when I shows 1 million and 5 million still on site and can't belive that many people lost the tickets or thrown them away .got burnt bad on 50x 6 in row with only 10x for 2 bucks .and played 2 multiplier got 20 back .hope Christmas cash is better.ruff finding 200ms.also.wish all on here well .alot of people on here with good background on scratch offs.

        I know that everyone is quick to think the lottery is fixed but I have to tell you that not always is the information correct at the time you are asking. Not only that, most states now are not paying out store owners/employees or families that win until a full investigation is conducted to prove that it is a legitimate win. Lotteries do not want scandals. If this is true they will look at the tapes, they will talk to others and they will even take out full page ad's to ensure that it was sold legitimately. Not everything is a cover-up or a scandal. Sometimes it is just wrong input, or looked in the wrong area etc. 

        I went to play a game and the store owner told me that he had scratch off cards from 4 years ago in his drawer he forgot to turn over to lottery. When the game started he put real cards up to display and forgot about them. When he realized he took them down to sell and they were so old they could not be scratched. He was going to send them back but forgot. I told him I will buy them and I did. The game is still in play and has been since 2008 and has one more winner left. Do i accuse him of holding back or conspiracy. No it was an honest mistake. Another example is the machines, the store owners sometimes have to put real cards in the slot to show which card is being sold. It stays there for months sometimes even longer. do I accuse of the store owner of conspiracy no these are honest mistakes. Yes there are people that are dishonest but not all.
