I decided to win the lottery, and here is how I’m going to do it.
When the next PowerBall happens, and a winner is selected, I’m going to the place where they turn in the ticket and wait on the person holding my winning ticket.
I will wait for them to announce the name of the winner, and I will step forward to get my winnings. I think you know the rest, as it involves disenfranchisement, distribution of wealth, my attorney, and a hashtag: #BlackLottoWinnersMatter
Perhaps I will start with the California lotto system, where there remains a lotto mystery, according to CBS News.
Today will either be one of the best days of someone’s life or the one they regret for a very long time. Whoever bought the lucky ticket for the $63 million jackpot in California has to come to a lottery office by the end of the day — or that piece of paper goes from being worth $63 million to $0.
The winner of the SuperLotto Plus ticket bought it at a Chatsworth 7-Eleven in August, reports CBS News correspondent Ben Tracy. It matched all the winning numbers, 46-1-33-30-16 mega number 24, and hit the jackpot.
Lottery winners have 180 days to claim their prize and lottery, officials say, but so far, nobody has turned in the winning ticket.
“In this case, I don’t think there’s any reason why anyone would wait, other than the fact that they’re trying to locate this ticket, or they’re none the wiser that they’ve won this prize,” California Lottery spokesperson Alex Traverso said.
But on Wednesday a California man sued the lottery and the state of California saying he was the winner. Brandy Milliner said he turned in the ticket but the lottery sent him a letter saying it was “too damaged to be reconstructed” and that “the lottery is unable to process your claim.”
“We checked it out. There’s no record of them trying to file a claim,” Traverso said. “If we denied them, there would be a letter sent by our professional law enforcement investigators who investigate every claim. So there’s no record of that, either.”
Why shouldn’t I claim this prize as well. The ticket was purchased. If I can return clothes (so what I wore them) to Nordstrom’s, I should be able to claim my lotto prize without a ticket or ID!
I read where hundred of million dollar plus lotto wins go unclaimed, and it’s all mine.
I’d really like to see somebody challenge the system on this. The lotto system is likely as corrupt as insurance companies: deny, deny, DENY!
For all we know, the lotto gives people the run-around, or may even have winners killed! Imagine the business of doing that, and putting the Clintons in charge!
