Here's the funny thing:

A colleague of mine bought a scratchlottery ticket yesterday. He won a prize. Not just any prize, one of the SPECIAL prizes. He won an original ...

PAC MAN ARCADE MACHINE! Y'know? One of these guys. Worth 3200 Euro. Thing is: he doesn't want it! So now he's looking to find a way to cash in on the thing. It says specifically in the rules that he can't opt for a cash amount from the lottery or the company delivering the machine. So he will be getting the machine sent to his home. And since he knows I'm into games, he asked me if I wanted to buy it. Hehe, well .... no I'm not that loaded....

So, my friends, anyone who wants to buy it or knows people who might be interested? He's very much willing to negotiate, maybe as far as 50% off the price.

That's... a silly prize :p

Also, did you happen to be driving on the A27 at the offramp to Breda around 18:00 yesterday? :p

That wasn't me, by now there's about 25 Valori Polo's driving through the country.

It would be a cool thing to have all right, but too prizy for my taste ;P

I don't suppose it ever occurred to him to sell the ticket?

Too late. He already mailed the ticket to the lottery company.

One word: eBay.

You may even get MORE than 3200 euros. :P

All that hassle with insurance and shipment, ugh. I would just keep the thing. The man has three young daughters! :P

eBay Netherlands, (or Benelux) of course. International shipping would be insane. Then you can simply request people to come pick it up with their van or something ;)
