Why is it that some of us think you have to meet certain appearance, intelligence, and lifestyle standards to be deserving of a large sum of money? Personally, I am glad to see a "good ol' boy" who hasn't had it so good in life finally make it into the sunshine.

Why am I suddenly picturing the world's first 3 story trailer house with a ballroom and ten car garage filled with monster trucks?

Ever notice how many of these "winners" work at the store that sold the ticket? The rest of this story is still to come.

I can't be the only one that thinks Barry is a big freaking snob! This blog is like a bad car wreck. You don't want to see it happen,but once it does you can't help but look.

Somehow, if the USUAL result occurs, he'll end up broke and in bankruptcy with nothing to show for it. I can understand how you can end up broke, but you should have a lot of toys to show for it. Yet, somehow, they end up with NOTHING!

9:56--I'm with you! A guy who was raised by his grandparents, STILL sees his own children-----glad to see it happen to a guy like this! Personally, I'd hate to think I had to manage that much money! (think I could learn, but the BS you would have to put up with from all your "friends"?) Hope he has good advise from knowledgable people! Hoping this one ends differently than most!

Agree with you 12:20, I hope that it does end differently. Maybe it will, as long as he gets someone trustworthy to handle the money for him so that he does not blow. Unfortunately, the history of other winners does not bode well for him.

Sounds like some of you are green-eyed with jealousy.
If he BLOWS it, so what!!!!!!
Has he asked you to pay his bills, if not then you have no reason to say anything.
I hope he enjoys his 3 story trailer house (9:58am).

Hey now to his girlfriend helping him hold the big check in the Story. Love to see when somebody young and in need wins big. Most of the time it is an 80 yr old guy who spends none and says he will save it for rainy day. This guy just won the Super Bowl, AND he IS going to DisneyWorld.

There have been in Canada specifically Ontario a huge number of investigations into these supposedly lucky store clerks winning large lotto jackpots and guess what??...turns out these clerks have been stealing the customers winning tickets for years, in some cases the winnning have been turned over to the rightful winner and the whole system was revamped just short of not allowing the retailer to participate , as a precaution, now a clerk can'e check your ticket unless you sign it first... i would guess that this is an example of that kind of fraud..I feel sorry for the person who ACTUALLY won..

PikerS, that's a cynical bunch of BS.

PikerS said...

The internet is a wonderful thing...here's cynical for you...DON'T BE A SUCKER BOY, (my dad told me theres one born every minute) You 7.14 are surely one.

example #1
"Real Lottery Winners To Get Their $5.7 Million Prize, After Man Charged With Fraud".."the payout became necessary after the OPP charged a Mississauga convenience store owner with fraud for allegedly bilking the not-so-lucky ticket holders out of their just desserts"
Example 2.."Marin helped expose fraud in 2007 with a report suggesting tens of millions of dollars had been won by lottery insiders, a number statisticians said defied the odds.

Since then, OLG released an auditor's report that found a staggering $198 million was won by insiders over 13 years.

'FULLY SUPPORTIVE'

Marin said he was close to recommending OLG restrict or even ban retailers from playing altogether. But he was confident enough in changes then-president Kelly McDougald had been making that he gave them six months to offer a solution. McDougald has since been fired."

Example 3....The CBC has raised new security concerns over the instant scratch tickets sold by the OLGC. CBC's the fifth estate reported in a special investigation on October 25 the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation's (OLGC) tickets are not being given to lottery winners and are claimed more often by the retailers who sell them averaging at CAN$500,000.

Hope he doesn't end up like the winner in Florida, Abraham Shakespeare. A woman & her boyfriend killed him for the money.

We all want this guy to have a happy ending, but this story always has the same ending. And it's sad.
