FDP Forum / Moe's Tavern (_8^(I) / Two co-workers at an Arkansas burger joint are disputing after one ran off with a $300,000 ticket

Two waitresses at an Arkansas burger joint are locked in a furious argument after one of the women ran off with a $300,000 lottery ticket intended to be split between the pair.

Leslie Underwood and her Sportsmans Drive-In co-worker, Mandy Vanhouten, were gifted the winning ticket as a Christmas bonus from their boss last Friday at the Stuttgart restaurant.

The manager, who ironically goes by the name Lucky, gifted the girls and other employees the tickets that were shared between duos.

Underwood and Vanhouten happened to be the Fortune instant ticket's holders - before Vanhouten left her high and dry when she disappeared with the prize shortly after.

A distraught Underwood since spoke with local Arkansas Matters about the matter.

Go on...Take the money and run...

Further proof that good looking womerns can be evil-at-heart.

Pretty sure I've driven past the Sportsman Drive-In once or twice, never stopped though.

A winning lotto ticket is a bearer instrument. By law, the holder that signs the ticket and presents valid ID is presumed to be the owner.

However, if it was a single ticket, and the boss and the women understood the terms of the gift ("you both split the prize if it wins"), it's actionable in court if certain criteria are met for a written or spoken contract.

I'm no attorney, but I think Ms. Out-In-Tha-Cold has a case if the criteria stand up.

I'm just scratching my head over the boss "gifting" a ten dollar scratch ticket, but making two employees share it.

Shtuff is about to get real in the trailer park.

The two girls received 5 tickets apiece and were told to share.

Vanhouten scratched off the winning ticket, and more importantly signed it.

Underwood sounds like a sore loser here, but Vanhouten sounds like the loser.

"The two girls received 5 tickets apiece and were told to share."

Interesting. Now if Underwood was given 5, Vanhouten was given 5, and the boss told them to share, I am not sure they are obligated to share. That's more like a suggestion at that point, "here's your 5, and here's your 5, and if you win you should share it".

If he took 10 tickets and handed them to them and said to share them win or lose, i.e. "I got you two these 10 lotto tickets" that might be different.

In any event, the real loser is the boss who bought a $300,000 winning ticket and then gave it to someone as a gift. Never do that!!!

If they divided the tickets among themselves, that would mean they each take tickets as their own, with no contract to share if one ticket hits...I would imagine.

In the mid-1960s my mama had two cousins who pooled their $$ for two tickets for a lottery in Puerto Rico. One of the women took the money and bought the tickets. She was still in possession of both tickets when the winning numbers were announced, and one of the tickets hit.

The woman in possession of the tickets informed her sister that her own ticket was the one that hit.

She took the winnings (about $10K) and refused to split the cash. The two sisters never spoke with each other up to the time the first one died many years later. Sad but true story.

I remember hearing about a similar kind of deal some time ago.

A waitress bought a soda and placed it on a shelf at work, intending to take it home at the end of her shift. But, she forgot and left it in the break room at the restaurant.

Another waitress found it , opened it and discovered a fairly substantial $$$$ prize printed in the cap. Don't know the outcome but I think there was some legal action over ownership on that one.

There was another at a Waffle House where a customer from out of state bought all the waitresses tickets to the lottery for Christmas and the staff decided to be share any prize that might be won. One of the tickets was a winner and the waitress whose ticket is was didn't honor the oral agreement to split the proceeds.

It did go to court and the other parties would have received their share(s) because the oral agreement was valid EXCEPT that the winnings were considered winnings from gambling which was, evidently, illegal in that state at the time.
