This is what happens when you wash your favorite pair of jeans and realize, OH SH!T, MY WINNING LOTTERY TICKET WAS IN THE POCKET!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
That's exactly what happened to Suzanne Hinte, in the latest lottery bonanza to hit the UK.
There were two winners and while a couple from Scotland has already come forward to collect their half of the £66M jackpot, everyone's still waiting for the other winner, whose ticket was purchased at a Worcestor shope in Central England, which happens to be the same place Hinte made her purchase.
Apparently, even though the barcode and a couple numbers are smeared on Hinte's ticket, the rest of her numbers are exact matches to the winning numbers. But that's not enough to snag the rest of the loot, according to lottery officials. Winning tickets must be verified through a set of security controls, which happens to require ALL the number be clearly marked and not smudged.

What's worse? Winning the lottery and not being able to collect or playing the lottery and never winning?

Hey @Lavonyork :) Thanks so much! I am feeling so much better. I'm off meds, just a little nauseated, but not bad. breathing is still difficult, but more manageable I guess. About the $20k...I wasn't upset, just really shocked that I was so close. It was for a Draw 4. The winning number was 16. I had chosen 15. SO CLOOOOOOSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Omg!! How awful!!
you can always tag me @lavonyork
