    What happens to unclaimed prizes? They sahould be put back into the lottery so the losers can have another chance on the money.

    Or does the lottery get to keep the money!!! How do we know the lottery was not fixed?

    If you bothered to look at the odds you would know that it is fixed, and it is no big secret. :)
