Glitch Delays Jersey Cash 5 Lottery Drawing

New Jersey LotteryNew Jersey Lottery: Glitch Delays Jersey Cash 5 Lottery Drawing

A mechanical glitch forced New Jersey Lottery officials to manually draw the winning numbers for the Jersey Cash 5 game on Friday night.

"The machine containing those game balls jammed, so they followed the emergency procedures, which call for an off-air manual drawing that is observed by the independent auditor," New Jersey Lottery spokesman Dominick DeMarco said.

It was not immediately clear what caused the problem, or whether a similar machine problem had ever previously affected a New Jersey lottery drawing, DeMarco said. The daily lottery drawings are televised live on NJN New Jersey Public Television.

"We expect that the machine will be back in operation for Saturday night's drawing," DeMarco said.

The winning Jersey Cash 5 numbers were 1, 4, 14, 33 and 39.

I got 3 of 5 on the Friday drawing on one ticket. Also 3 of 5 earlier in week when the machine was still OK! Once or twice in the past the machine failed during the drawing and the hostess reached in and grabbed out the fifth ball while looking away from the machine.
