IOWA LOTTERY WINNER CLAIMS $16.5 MILLION PRIZE; ONLY TWO HOURS BEFORE DEADLINE

30 Dec

This story gives new meaning to the word procrastination.  The winner of a $16.5 million dollar Lottery ticket came forward just two hours before the deadline.  A representative of a law firm claimed the prize on behalf of a trust, so it is still a mystery who actually purchased the ticket.

Lottery officials said they were flooded with false claims before the real winner stepped forward.  It is unbelievable how many people buy tickets and never check them.  Last year a mult-million dollar winner missed out, when they did not come forward in time.

Trust me, when I buy a ticket…it is checked the same day.  And let me win…there is not doubt I would drive to Springfield immediately to get the cash! 

Well, better late than never.  They will certainly have a Happy New Year…until their family members find out they are millionaires.
