Hi, Gene. You are correct that security-camera footage is an item that the Iowa Lottery routinely requests from its retail locations where tickets winning large prize amounts are purchased. The details in the footage are among the tools that Lottery Security utilizes to verify the information provided by the person claiming the prize to ensure that the lottery pays the prize to the correct person. For that reason, the footage is not publicly released.

Don't you have video you can release of the person who bought it?
