      Computer glitch, they blamed it on the computer anyway!!

       

      No one here likes RNG for lottos, maybe they should go back to the good old

      fashion raffels where they hand pick the numbers and someone writes them down

      or someone hand pick names, ya can't mess up names right? lol and two people double check,

      I don't know...

       

      To see those numbers on the screen, wake up early to go to the lotto office only to find out you

      did not win, what an awful feeling!! The numbers should stay as they are, unless the computer

      picked numbers not on the list at all.

      When the NYL rolled out their new website several years ago, they also didn't snag all the bugs.

      For almost five days they were posting the wrong results!!!

      I am one of those people who watch the draws everyday, and when I went to the computer I was all confused for about a week and all my charts were in disarray.

      I remember thinking oh boy.   Somebody is gonna throw away a 5 thousand dollar winner!

      Very distressing indeed.Disapprove

      Those people who were shafted should get a free steak dinner at sizzler or something.Yes Nod

      Because the chance the million dollar winner is gonna come forward is very slim, because many people dont hoard their lottery tickets the way I do.

          I keep all of my losing tickets so I can write off the losses against any wins. So I would still have that raffle ticket but I know most people probably tear trash / throw away any ticket they find to be losers...even those that those ticket scanners indicate are either invalid or losers (I always check tickets using at least 2 sources and knew the scanner was wrong).

          Raffles stink!

          Get MONEY!!! Winning a JACKPOT lottery is all the HOPE and CHANGE I desire!!!  NOW give me MONEY!US Flag

          The guy who won the presidency in 2008 really won the lottery...he is now millions richer, travels in first class style, and even has a staff that would be the envy of the richest Powerball winner (she has a staff of 2). Every night he goes to sleep, he probably plays the close of Dave Chappelle's Show: I'm rich beyatch!

                If a guy went to all the trouble of driving down to the lottery office with a losing ticket I think he should get a hat or perhaps a t-shirt that will display his love and loyalty to the state lottery......What?

                    This should help promote my idea that ALL losing tickets should ALWAYS be in a raffle to win $1 million. 

                    This would have solved the problem, because the clerk could have said "Your not a loser yet"

                        Agree, that people who's hopes were screwed, should be rewarded: 10% from the winning sum that was screwed!

                        They should take class action.

                          I'm cosigning on your comment LottoBoner - I agree, that people who think they are winners based on the lottery's mistake should be compensated in someway. The least the Lottery should do is pay up with something, the most they should do is send out an advertisement right away to make players aware of the mistake. Maybe some folk can salvage those tickets in a hurry and go and claim those funds.

                          You best believe if the rolls were reversed and a lottlery winner owed the state 1 penny, they'd be coming after them with a vengance  - charging interest, and penalties and fees.  A person can tell them a thousand times over, that... hey it was an honest mistake. I inadvertantly keyed in a 6 when it should have been a 9. Yea, I owe you 3 dollars in tax money, but the state will never allow leniency.

                          We need to watch who we choose to make the rules.  Let's go on a Lottery Strike Washington State. Let them know they need to pay up.

                          You think the administrative lottery folk are cheating? I know I'm ranting, but I hate when the state lottery cheats. Rant

                          LUCKYDOC,

                           

                           We are going to WIN BIG!!!

                            I'm pretty sure the correct answer to that question is almost none.
