Well, this guy's New Year is sucking so far.

John Wines of Roswell New Mexico bought a scratch off lottery ticket and won $500,000 dollars. However, the New Mexico Lottery says the ticket was a misprint and refuses to give Wines a cent.

Wines said they refused to pay him at the gas station where he bought the scratch off. Like a gas station's gonna whip out half a million and make it rain for folks anyway. When he took his complaint to the New Mexico Lottery, they were no help either.  All they did was send him an email saying:

"We did find a flaw in that particular pack of tickets and it’s been reported to our printer. Thanks for bringing this to our attention. I did complete a reconstruction of your ticket and it was not a winner.”

How's your year going so far?
