Good question. I would ask lottery officials if they could not use video tape from the store and compare it to the time stamp on the ticket and the person who bought the ticket and the show the copy of the ticket.  Other than that, dont think much more

They might not use tapes any more, they might store the video on-in a hard drive.

But either way the video might be kept from 1 day maybe up to 1 month, they can have only so many tapes and then they record new videos over the old ones, same if they record on the hard drive(s), the drive(s) have only so much space so old videos get deleted to make room for new-ones.

    You take the state lottery to court.

    I seriously doubt you will win. You can always try..

      Does anyone have the definitive answer on whether or not a copy of a winning ticket can be validated?

        No, but are there any accounts of a lottery comission accepting a (photo)copy?
