56 Million Euros Unclaimed
A lottery player in California has won an incredible amount of money. The prize was an incredible sum of 56 million euros. But you know what is even more incredible? The winnings were not collected. Why this is not known. Maybe the lottery player didn’t realize that he had won, or maybe he lost his ticket. One does not know everything. What we do know is that never before has such a large prize gone unclaimed.
What Happens To The Money?
Now you will surely ask yourself what happens to this unclaimed money. First of all, you have to wait for half a year, because this is the time in which a lottery player has time to collect his winnings. But this half-year is now over. And now the California School Board is rejoicing. It is regulated that all winnings that are not collected are distributed to schools in California. I’m sure many students will be happy about this because with so much money you can do a lot of things at the school. Maybe they can buy new computers for the classrooms, or build a new gymnasium, or whatever.
What would you recommend your school does if it got that kind of money?
