This is quite an incredible story and i am glad that they caught the woman responsible for this theft. I would think that the owner of the credit card was hoping that the prize would go to them but that is not going to be the case

That is not fair, that the owner of card wouldn't get the prize. And the Atlantic Lottery takes away the prize. I think that someone should get this winning, because winning is winning, no matter who will win.
Imagine, that someone stole card to buy-in the WSOP, then will win the WSOP, what will happened? Bracelet will be give to the fund ?

What a story there. It was like a payback Smile
I dont agree with the company's policy there.
The money has been won. Instead of adding them in a future jackpot,
they should make a donation of their choice.
Or let the credit card owner, where the money will be donated.

usually the casino wins ... it’s very sad that the Casino always wins ... of course, in my opinion, the win had to be given to the cardholder .... but the laws are such that they protect in the powerful of the world .... this is very sadly

Exactly, I think the same. Win is win, no matter how achieved.

I do not understand how can some people to be so stupid. When you steal a card you can not buy some shopping. When you buy a lottery ticket with a stolen card it's like you want to get to jail. If that woman was really smart she buys that ticket with cash. The stupidity cost and i hope she will get to jail because he deserve this thing.

this criminal confirmed my theory so that basically all criminals are distinguished by a bad mind .... Now she will have time to think what she did wrong ... but it seems to me that nothing will change ... she will not increase her mind from sitting in jail .. only restriction of freedom

There is no justice in trying to evade justice as justice will always (well, sometimes) prevail. Well done to those law enforcement officials who managed to investigate their way to get to this arrest. Let us hope that the true scales of justice will be balanced and an appropriate outcome be provided for this bad person.

The only thing wrong in this story that the lottery company won again, not having to pay the 50k.
