ok so the guy is an idiot. how is anyone going to be able to prove the ticket is theirs?
all that's going to happen now is no one gets the money it stays in the lottery.

Interesting story.

Faced with the temptation of money, he chose not to take what he could that was not honestly won.

Now I'm wondering whomever comes forward to claim this winning ticket, how will they know that is the actual winner ?

A ticket like that should just go back into the jackpot and give him a treasure finder's fee. 10 percent there?

Even with that, I'd guess he'd donate it to something he thinks is a worthwhile charity or set up a college fund for a child or niece or grandson or some such.
