Ms. Leach:

You gave the winning ticket away and now you want it back claiming you didn't mean to give it away?

Mtn. View rarely has any winning major lottery tickets. But twice in three months, the same store sells two winning tickets; one is from a scratcher, the other a 5 of 5 winner worth almost $260,000. Now lets see if anyone locally can win any large amount in this current $363 million Mega Millions jackpot. The previous two drawings have chosen numbers from the lower numbered range. Odd that no jackpot winners from those drawings. But I did hit the 17-19-20 for JUST SIX DOLLARS!!!!!!!!!!

How do you accidentally hand a ticket to someone? If my intent is to keep the ticket, I keep the ticket. If you hand it to someone and walk away, that's called a gift.

No, No, No, No, The ticket belongs to the woman that gave the Crying Broke Ass 100.00 so he could get some gas and have a little bit of
extra money.Who in the hell buys or gives a complete stranger a lottery ticket and what kind of low life cries to a stranger for gas money the guy should be ashamed of himself.

All I have to say is Too Bad! She gave it away & that's her fault. If you hadn't gone on television & the radio when you won $1 million dollars then you wouldn't have this problem of people asking for handouts. It's you fault, you don't deserve the $260K. You GAVE IT AWAY just accept it!

Sometimes good deeds backfire! He should share with her. I feel bad for her when she won the million was it on a scratcher?
