what a very deceiving headline .........

A Taco Bell worker changed his mind about a lottery ticket he'd thrown away, and it led him to a $250,000 Mega Millions prize.

Andrew Hunter of Dawsonville, Ga., thought the lottery ticket was worthless and chucked it. But he had second thoughts, and learnedthat matching one number plus the Mega Ball was worth $3. And when he cashed it in, he bought three more tickes - one of which netted him $250,000.

he threw the ticket away ....

he bought new tickets , so what in the hell does this headline fit this story

Yep, misleading headline. But people do throw away money in lottery tickets and track tickets all the time. Clever hustlers have learned to pick up discarded race track tickets and sort them at home. The most I've heard of one salvaged ticket being worth,.. 25,000. That's a chunk of change! But the scavengers who do this, supposedly earns 5 to 12 thousand a season. Pretty slick, huh?

Statistics have bucks of unclaimed lottery tickets. All those 2 dollar castoffs laid on a dresser and forgotten or misread/lost tickets add up in the state treasuries.
