Imagine you lost that ticket, how do you not consider jumping off a bridge?
I know I'll never win but I always check my ticket so it can't be me.
I've heard some people will wait a month or two to claim their win
to get all their shit in order and prepare for the madness
but 6 months is pushing it
You know that person is getting a divorce before claiming the ticket in a trust and partying hard!
BTW, the great state of CA gets 13.3% of those winnings!
Hold on, let me go and check my tickets.
They probably don't know. So they sleep at night. Virtually no one knows all their lotto numbers, so it's probable they don't know they lost it.
Worst part of this story is the fuckin government getting their grubby hands on the potentially forfeited money. They don't need it and WILL squander it.
OMFG, Holy Shit. You'll never guess what just happened?!!
I'm pretty sure their ex would catch wind of them collecting the money
Kids would definitely tell Mommy about Daddy's new Lambo
They're smart, laying low forming an LLC and having estate lawyers who represent the LLC go to collect the check in the name of the LLC. You'd never catch me on tv or in the paper holding a massive "please murder me, sue me for that time I knocked you out in a bar, or claim you had my kid" check
My wife works with a neighbor of the winner. She was happy her neighbor won, than an hour later the coworker stopped talking about it and acted like she didn't out the winner. My wife thinks she was notified to not talk about it. Apparently they want their privacy.
You can't do that in California. They require the names of the winners to be made public.
I live next city over...big asian community over there.
in fact that's where a few of those baby motels were..
pregnant asians came there to have anchor babies
They were probably hoping everyone would forget about it.
No one waits this long. Even if they have the ticket in a safe deposit box. You be too paranoid something was going to happen to prevent you from getting the money. They aren't going to release the video of the three dozen people who might have bought the ticket because everyone of them will say they were one who lost the ticket if that's what happened. There as been enough publicity that anyone who bought a ticket from that store is aware of the unclaimed ticket. Maybe the person died and any relatives live in other states. It won't shock me if it never gets claimed. It's happened before. Not for this big a jackpot but I think there have been unclaimed tickets worth millions of dollars each.
According to the Powerball rules, they have one year to claim the jackpot.
And in California, they have to reveal their name, but not the city. You do not have to show up on TV.
However, Lottery officials reveal where the ticket was purchased.
So there's almost no running away and throwing people off (at least in Cali). They will find out who won when they piece two & two together.
Maybe the winner is moving to a faraway city to confuse everyone. Enough time will pass, and people will have no idea that the winner "John Doe from Chino Hills" is the same John Doe, living in quiet little Santa Rosa, $500 million richer.
for many lotteries, you agree to your name and likeness being published when you buy the ticket. I think only 6 states allow you to stay anonymous
Well then a disguise it is and a lawyer to help set a record breaking precident That the very requirement to go public puts the winner in imminent danger.
