I am the winner of this draw I purchased it 12/23/2010 a bit after 6:07pm its a multi draw because I meant to buy the sizzler X5 however the clerk explained to me what it was and I decided to go ahead with the transaction, the video can't. See my face because I was wearing a blue/possibly charcoal hooded sweatshirt. The ticket no longer exsist because a clerk mishandled/kept the ticket. The fact that the ia lottery whent public about having video eliminated the possability of me getting it back had the clerk tried and cashing it. The fact that the lottery released all this details when I was claiming this should rais questions.......... Entegrity ....

The hot lotto ticket in question was bought on the 29th of December, 2010, NOT the 23rd. But nice try.

The iowa lottery officials i talked to said "they dont do that" when i asked if it was possible to print out your lottery numbers on a receipt along with other purchased items.And i remeber a brown bag maybe leather that the clerk had with many other lottery tickets my reciept went through the wash so i thought i was out of luck.but when i asked if the clerk could still have it.They assured me they dont hold on to tickets and i was out of luck without the ticket.(did i imagine all that and all those other lottery tickets?)thats what the iowa lottery implied.

How could this be happening? Maybe the lottery winner doesn't know yet that he have won the lottery jackpot. Cause if he knew, he would have claim the prize upon knowing that he have won.
