Camelot Bid for PA Lottery Extended For Tenth Time

Saturday August 31 2013Governor Tim Corbett has reached an agreement with UK based Camelot Global Services for a tenth extension in their bid to run the Pennsylvania Lottery. This follows months of debate within the state administration regarding how to proceed with the management of the lottery, including whether or not to reject the bid and keep the lottery state-run. This new extension will run until October 29.

Camelot, who is the sole private lottery manager bidder for the contract, first expressed their interest in taking over the Penn State Lottery back in November 2012 and were granted a Notice of Award in January 2013 after pledging to generate over $34.6 billion in profits for the state over the next 20 years. According to Governor Corbett, this figure is $3 – $4.5 billion more than the state run lottery currently produces.

Some of Camelot’s plans for expansion include selling lottery tickets online and introducing a new Keno game. Governor Corbett voted in favour of the privatisation bid, stating that the increased revenue it would bring in would be a way for the state to continue to serve the growing elderly population who are the recipients of the lottery profits.

Attorney General Kathleen Kane had an opposing view. She disagreed with the privatisation bid and announced she was unhappy signing the contract over to a British firm. State Treasurer Rob McCord and other Democrats agreed with her opposition and also cited their concern over the 200 plus state lottery workers who would lose their jobs.

Governor Corbett was hoping PA would follow in the footsteps of the Illinois and Indiana Lotteries who have signed contracts with private lottery managers. However, after the tenth extension was agreed just this week, reaching a privatisation agreement just seems to be getting further and further away for Camelot and Governor Corbett.

Speculation is also continuing to mount that Governor Corbett may be ready to turn his back on the bid and proceed with trying to bolster state lottery profits by continuing to run it in house. However, part of the privatisation appeal to Governor Corbett was the $200 million security fund pledged to the state by Camelot should the lottery profits fall below their projections.

With disagreements and bickering over the bid still occupying administration and local media, the only current certainly is that this discussion is far from over. Lottery World will bring you the latest news on this story as and when it breaks.

NY Lottery Winner Scammed of $5M Finally Receives Prize

Friday August 30th, 2013 – A lucky New York resident was scammed out of his $5 million win on a NY scratch-off back in 2006 but will finally receive his winnings in the next couple of weeks, seven years after being duped.

Robert Miles of Syracuse bought the scratch-off ticket in October 2006 at The Green Ale Market store owned by Nayef Ashkar. However, when he returned to the store to check the ticket Nayef’s son, Andy Ashkar, told Miles he had only won $5,000 and kept the winning ticket for himself.

It wasn’t until 2012 when the Andy, along with his brother Nayel, contacted state lottery officials to try and redeem the ticket did Miles come forward and say he was the real winner, promoting the New York Lottery to launch an investigation.

Miles told officials Andy Ashkar had stolen the ticket from him, telling him it was only worth $5,000 and giving him $4,000 and keeping a $1,000 ‘cut’ for the store. At the time Miles was addicted to crack cocaine and, confused by what Andy Ashkar had told him, walked away from the store with $4,000 thinking that without the ticket, it would be the word of a “crackhead” against that of a store owner.

Lottery officials launched an investigation into who the real owner of the ticket was and in the spring of 2013, the case went to trial. Andy Ashkar was found guilty of possessing stolen property and was sentenced to up to 25 years in prison.

Earlier this week the Gaming Commission verified that the ticket did belong to Miles, who had been forced to file for bankruptcy in 2008. His lawyer told The Post-Standard of Syracuse that Miles was “elated the lottery prize has finally been awarded to him.”

The winning ticket would have paid the $5 million out as a $250,000 annuity over 20 years but, because of changes in the lottery this year, Miles now has the option to select a cash payout of $3,210,000, which would work out as $2,124,378 after taxes.

Congratulations Miles on finally receiving your win – after hitting the jackpot seven years ago you can now enjoy your millionaire status!
