    stolen tickets can’t be cashed- they have serial numbers and are only valid when scanned at checkouts like gift cards

    What an idiot, committed a crime and got absolutely nothing for it.

    Can’t wait until he cashes them in and gets caught.

    If you are smart you sell stolen lottos to suckers- they try to cash in and arrested- guy takes their money and runs. Never buy lotto except from authorized dealers

    People will sell them on the street for less than face value-gotta be stupid to buy one but lots of stupid people who fall for con men look who is President
