Part of the thrill of buying a lotto ticket is dreaming up all the scenarios of what you would do if you won. Some people think practically and imagine paying off their loans and investing in a small property. Others fantasize about clomping into the office in new expensive Big Red Boots and loudly telling everyone to suck it because they quit this shit. Sadly, the comedown when you realize that you’ve only won $2, and you’ll still be shopping in the sales section of Target is pretty harsh. One way to soften the blow of not earning mega millions is that you can always get a picture with the big check! Torry Nielsen asked the Nebraska lottery to have his winnings of $10 immortalized with a big check and they obliged.
Never, ever, ever, EVER trust a dude named Reggie. I can’t believe I’m even having to remind people of this; it’s rule number two #inthesestreets, right after no snitching! But according to TMZ, a man named Jose Rivera broke both of those cardinal rules and is suing a dude named Reggie, who he claims stole a lottery ticket he bought the day before a $2.04 billion drawing and refused to give it back. Jose claims he bought the winning ticket from Joe’s Service Center in Altadena, CA on November 7 and it was stolen by Reggie that same day. And now Jose has filed a lawsuit against Reggie and Edwin Castro, the man who the California Lottery announced was the rightful owner of the golden ticket.
