2 Super 7 jackpot winners shut out of Jackpot in BC

Just caught tail end of CTV broadcast in which 2 teary-eyed A & W fast food, burger-joint female workers in Mission, BC, stated they had been shut out of a $14,000,000 jackpot win of Super 7 jackpot by their workmates. The two shut-out ones said they'd been chipping in toonies for a long time for the draw. One of the shut-outs said she personally had been buying tickets with her fellow workers at that place for 6 years, chipping in a toonie before every draw. But, she and the other woman have no proof of the winning ticket.

Not sure but think it's a group of nine other workers at same joint who are claiming the jackpot - independent of the two shut-out women. Unfortunately, the pair just trusted their co-workers.

Seems especially sad since these two women didn't seem to have much money at all. One of the women had children and she said she wanted to buy a house and have some money for her kids education.
Assuming their story is true, are they legally completely sol?

What I saw ...

The CTV piece I saw aired here in BC around midnite (PDT) and in it, both groups were in the Lottery office at the same time. The 9 presented the winning ticket and the 2 were there to claim their share apparently without proof.

They were then taken to separate rooms, and (after being quizzed I suppose) both groups left the office without the prize. The 2 women supposedly not of the winning group did not seem stressed at all afterwards ... not much of consequence was said except that BCLC was withholding the prize pending further talks (investigation?) ... the only conclusion that can be made so far then is that the Lottery corp thought the 2 women's claim is worth looking into ...

Did not see or hear anything today, yet ...

One must have a copy of a group ticket..I do that all the time..
I give them copies all the time..
we have a man in our Dep who refused to play claiming it's unethical etc etc...So if we ever win and he plays dirty games,he has to provide any proof that he has been chipping money (which doesn't exist).

I don't know who to believe in this story..

On the 1st day coverage one of the winners said 2 employees won't be happy (cause they didn't play). So there is already signs of problems.
Then I hear that these 2 girls claimed they were away!!
Court has to decide in this unless one party make a move.

BTW it's not S7 it's CN649...

Update :


Another co-worker said he wasn't there the day tickets were sold so he didn't play and he didn't make a fuss.
He said the 9 winners are still his friends!!
it's obvious if one is away etc etc arrangements have to be made to leave extra money or some even cover for them til they come back....

they have till the end of this week then a Judge will have to decide if the Lotto Corp fails to solve the issue.

Arrow See these links

[URL=http://www.ctv.ca/servlet/ArticleNews/story/CTVNews/1124932335986_17/?hub=Canada]SEE HERE[/URL], plus also the related videos and stories.

Looks to me like it's going to court cuz BCLC doesn't want to be the judge on this one, they're just waiting till Friday to see if the participants can settle it amicably first.

I don't think that's going to happen, without a formal written agreement it's the word of the 2 women against the other nine who apparently have a reason to exclude the 2, whatever that may be ...

Talking Still more claimants in Mission ...

Two more came forward to claim a piece of the 14.5M prize today.
So there are 13 ppl vying for a share now. No details were available on the newest 2, but
the BCLC has extended till Monday the time the players have to fight it out by themselves.

As mentioned bfr, if there's no agreement then the court is given the prize to decide who gets it.



Mission Impossible ???

Not fully resolved yet ... here's the latest

Jackpot split nine ways in B.C. lotto dispute
Canadian Press

VANCOUVER - Nine workers at a fast-food restaurant were given $1.1 million each from a disputed $14 million lottery jackpot on Friday by a B.C. Supreme Court judge.

The other four workers making a claim for the money will have to go to trial to fight for the remaining four shares of the prize, which will continue to be held by the court.

There were no smiles or shrieks of joy among the winners Friday, however.

The four young women still laying claim to the prize have reserved the right to argue that as many as two of the nine winners who walked out of court with more than a million dollars each aren't entitled to the money.

It's not clear which two might be targeted for laying a false claim, so it's possible that the winners might be worried about spending their windfall before the trial is settled.

Susan Griffen, the lawyer for the nine winners, said her clients were happy with the judge's decision. They won the jackpot more than a month ago and haven't seen any money yet as the other young women came forward alleging they were part of the pool too.

"They are very happy, they are the rightful owners of the prize," she said.

Some of the young winners, all of whom are still working together at the Mission, B.C., A&W, were accompanied by their parents to court. Some ran terrified from cameras and all of them refused to comment after the hearing.

The prize has already lost $13,414.68 in interest as a result of the dispute because the B.C. Lotto Corp. was holding it in an account that doesn't bear interest while trying to sort out who the rightful winners were.

The four claimants had earlier asked the court for time to file affidavit evidence.

"Although almost a month has passed since the nine lotto players presented the winning ticket, the four potential claimants have not even articulated a claim by filing a writ or statement of claim," Griffin told the court.

"The four potential claimants have not filed any evidence which contradicts the evidence of the nine lotto players that the winning lottery ticket was purchased with funds contributed by the nine lotto players alone."

Griffin said there are two areas of dispute in the case.

Tanis McQuillan and Megan Weisgarber claim to have paid $4 into the employee fund used to buy lotto tickets.

Griffin has filed affidavit evidence from a number of people who dispute that claim, however. Some are employees who didn't pay into the pool for this particular prize, and who admit they aren't entitled to any money.

The second dispute involves two other claimants, Sarah Healey and Rani Johnston.

Both say they should have been included in the lottery pool because they were asked to participate and wanted to do so. Neither had any money and said they would hand it over to one of the employees organizing the pool after the ticket was purchased.

Griffin said she has filed affidavits from people who say this didn't happen and that it was never the practice to pay for tickets after they'd been purchased or after the draw.

Healey was in court with her parents. The 16-year-old is still working at the burger restaurant, as are the other 11 women and one man involved in the dispute.

Healey said the atmosphere at work has been tough at times.

"It's all right,'' she said during a break in the hearing.

"It's been pretty bad with some people down there."

"Most of them have been pretty good to her,'' said her father Mike.

He said he was at court to support his daughter and can only hope the truth comes out.

The legal battle over the money has caused a great deal of stress to the young woman who organized the purchase of the winning ticket.

Marjorie Toyryla said in an affidavit that she was threatened by the husband of one of the four claimants.

She says in her statement that he said, "I hope you have fun spending your money because we're going to get it one way or the other.''

Toyryla says she was so scared she told the B.C. Lotto Corp. that the man's wife, Tanis McQuillan, did pay money toward the winning ticket. Now she says that was a lie made in fear.

Based on the published facts so far, it seems that the 9 people who paid in $2 for the 9 Quick Picks deserve to get the whole amount.

22-year old Rani Johnston and Sarah Healey are scum who belatedly tried to cheat the Group of Nine of millions. Rani refused her chance to put in $2 & was crying when she found out the the participating group won. 16-year old Healey is not even allowed to play the lottery and she was not not working that Saturday.

19-year old "cute and blond" Megan Weisgarber and 24-year old supervisor Tanis McQuillan will have to prove that the $4 they each gave on Wednesday, August 17 was specifically for the August 20 6/49 draw instead of August 17 or for Lotto Super 7.
