Over $17.1 million in lottery prizes have been denied by The Georgia Lottery
Corporation in the last 4 years. In many of these cases, the victims are
of Indian, Asian, or Hispanic descent. These claimants are often prejudiced
either by their inability to speak English, institutional stereotyping
and/or other arbitrary factors. Since 2013, the lottery has discharged
270 denial letters to prize winners, many based solely on the Georgia
Lottery’s naked speculation and unverifiable suspicions of fraud.
The lottery’s purported reasons for these denials often include
the fact that winners can’t identify the specific date of the ticket’s
purchase, the winners’ relationship with store owners, and winners
who claim multiple wins within a short period of time.
The recent uptick in denied lottery prize claims is finally being challenged
in the courts, as the Lottery Corporation stretches and exceeds the limits
of its legal authority by withholding large prizes based solely on discriminatory
factors and unverified speculation of fraud or cheating.
