lottery loser loses lawsuit
Recommended online casinos
According to Loto-Quebec’s computers, Joel Ifergan placed the order for his 2 lottery tickets at 8:59:47. The first ticket printed out before the lottery’s 9pm deadline so it was valid for the May 23 drawing. The second ticket printed out after the 9pm deadline, so it was valid for the May 30 drawing.
So Ifergan did what anyone would do: he spent 7 years and $100,000 in legal fees suing Loto-Quebec. He lost each appeal and the Supreme Court of Canada has declined to hear his case.
lol, ticket printed correctly.
It stated the ticket’s for the May 30 drawing. Not a chance in hell the lottery is going to honor it for another date.
To be fair, I would’ve sued too, but I would’ve dropped it after not getting some kind of settlement after the first lawsuit. Consuming 7 years of his life with this crap? lol..
Not saying this guy should have won, but I want to say my state has a window of time where you can’t get tickets for any drawing. All lotteries should have this, imo.
Yep. no sales from 8:59p to 10p on drawing days.
And reading the article posted, all the other Canadian provinces apparently do have a similar rule as well.
I live in MD and I think they cut off sales of tickets 1hr before the drawing. At least they used to back when I was in college and worked at a liquor store that had a lottery machine. But that was. ahem. a number of years ago. At the time, late 80’s/early 90’s. The machine actually wouldn’t sell ANY ticket for anything for about 10 minutes right around drawing time. That was for daily lottery stuff. Pick 3 pick 4 etc. The mega millions didn’t exist yet that I recall. But there was a “lotto” jackpot in MD only that started at a Million and went up from there. That would shut off 1 hr before. You could still by a ticket, but it printed for next weeks drawing. People were sometimes pissed if they missed the deadline by a minute or two.
THis lawsuit had no chance.
The second ticket had the May 30 play date printed on it. If the numbers on that ticket came in on May 30, does anyone think he would be claiming an error.
He was essentially trying to get one ticket to be valid for two drawings. Nice try buddy…
Besides, he was given the option of a refund when he purchased it and saw the wrong date.
You can’t win lawsuits when merit is your only weapon.
Or when you don’t even have that. I take the lottery’s side on this one.
