Player Wins Battle with Lottery
(August 27, 2003) — According to local media reports the Hoosier
Lottery has been forced to release the time that a winning Powerball
ticket was purchased at a lottery retailer’s store in Trafalgar.
Richard Allender claims to have bought two Powerball tickets at the
store. He reportedly kept one and threw the other in the trash. It has
since been confirmed that the outlet sold a $100,000 winning ticket that
Since no one has come forward to claim the prize, Mr. Allender thinks he
threw away the winning ticket.
In his quest to prove his case Mr. Allender hired investigators and
secured the surveillance camera videotape from the store, which will
pinpoint the exact time of each lottery ticket purchased, he said.
After repeated correspondence between attorneys, Mr. Allender finally
pleaded his case to the public access counselor, who agreed with him.
In her decision Sandra Barger, the acting public access counselor, said
revealing the actual time that the winning lottery ticket was sold
reveals nothing about the process, manner or system by which the
commission determines the time the winning lottery ticket was sold.
However, Hoosier Lottery Director Jack Ross, said he disagrees with the
legal basis for the decision.
