    I read and read and read this story and I still do not see how it is ALL the states fault. You play a game you have NO chance of winning.. you are the idiot and deserve to be separated from your money.

    State lotto’s have places to check to see who won what off of what game. They even give you a handy number to call free of charge ON THE TICKETS. You can even ask a vendor of the tickets for the number and not buy a ticket and call before spending your money.

    One more blame it on someone else and try and sue the pants off of them story.
