    Talking Check your January lotto ticket

    Lotto winner has two weeks to claim prize

    Desert Sun Wire Service July 14, 2008

    Time is running out for the person or group who purchased a MEGA Millions lottery ticket in Corona in January that's worth $174,574, California Lottery officials said today.

    The ticket purchased at a 7-Eleven store at 702 W. Sixth St. contained five of the six winning numbers in the 12-state MEGA Millions drawing of Jan. 29. Those numbers were 23, 8, 42, 39 and 40.

    The claim period expires two weeks from today, on July 28. The prize, if unclaimed by then, will be rolled into a state education fund for the benefit of California schools, Lottery officials said.

    No tickets had all five winning numbers plus the MEGA number, 24, in the Jan. 29 drawing.

    A Dana Point man bought the only other ticket with five winning numbers and claimed his $174,574 cash prize the day after the drawing, Lottery officials said.

    According to Lottery officials, less than 2 percent of prizes are never claimed. But even the unclaimed money adds up. For fiscal year 2006-2007, more than $29 million in winnings went unclaimed.

    After 180 days, the claim period for prizes ends, and the Lottery distributes the money to public schools.

    My next door neighbor won the Powerball once, it was the biggest ever at the time. Haven't spoken to them since.


    TRUE STORY.

    They had over 300 phone messages within 4 hours, people were driving by and taking rocks from their gravel yard for good luck.

    I don't know if I could get Radiohead to do that. I still think it's my fault somehow that they haven't been back to AZ.


    (but I'd sure as hell try to do that!)

    Also, you need to get your ducks in a row before you take your ticket to the lottery office -- I think you have up to a year in some cases to collect, so in the meantime you can change your number to a non-published number and perhaps move somewhere else or whatever.

    Yeah, it fucked them up pretty good. They bought houses in Utah, Cali and back East somewhere. The house (next door) was given to their daughter. Well the daughter and the husband became tweekers and the he ends up shooting himself one night while cleaning his gun, supposedly. He ends up having a dozen surgeries on his brain costing thousands and thousands of dollars. Of course with all that money the didn't have health insurance. The house was then given to her sister (the other daughter) who got arrested for some sort of embezzlement from the parents, stealing there winnings. Last I heard from my dad they had to sell all three of those houses and currently reside somewhere in Sun City. My dad ran into them out front of his house about a year ago and said they acted like they never won the money in the first place and avoided any question he had about it.


    Sorry for the lengthy response but it is crazy...

    Sounds like they spent all their winnings on drama.

    Deadline for unknown lotto winner looming

    Desert Sun Wire Services • July 27, 2008

    State lottery officials say whomever is holding a ticket worth $174,575 has until the close of business Monday to claim it, or it will be automatically donated to the state's school systems.

    The Mega Millions ticket was purchased Jan. 29 at the 7/11 store at Grand Boulevard at Sixth Street in Corona, an outlet near the 91 Freeway.

    The winner may have been a resident of a distant suburb who just popped into the 7/11 for a quick snack or gas and forgot about the ticket, officials said.

    The ticket bears the five winning numbers: 8, 23, 39, 40 and 42, but lacks the winning Mega number, 24.

    Khalid Mamood, a clerk at the Corona 7/11, told one local newspaper that people often come into the store and claim they hold winning tickets, but lost them.

    ``A man came in this week, and said he had the winning ticket in his car, but he opened the window as he was driving on the freeway, and it blew out the window,'' Mammood told the paper.

    Whomever made this $174,575 blunder is not alone: Californians annually donate as much as $50 million a year to the state's school via unclaimed, lost or forgotten lottery tickets, the paper reported.

    Cali, Utah and back East. please.

    I'd move to South East Asia and live like a king in paradise. I'd want a giant tree house over looking the beach on a tiny island in Indonesia, not a fucking house in Utah.
    Then I will hold you down and spit her percolations all over you until you're as greasy as the day she regrets pushing your big fat ass out her big fat cunt.
