Lotto ticket winners sue New Jersey Lottery after throwing ticket
June 27 , 2014
Two New York men ended up throwing their lottery ticket that was worth $1M. Media reports indicate that Erik Onyango and Salvatore Cambria are now suing the Lottery Commission, blaming it for failing to update the information on time.
The two men thought they had lost the money after checking their ticket and threw it out. It appears that lottery officials need them to have the ticket and said they were out of luck without it.
However, the winners claim they can prove the fact that they bought the ticket since they bought three of them with consecutive numbers and still possess the other two.
