Pick 3 numbers in Kansas Lottery misreported

Kansas LotteryKansas Lottery: Pick 3 numbers in Kansas Lottery misreported

The Kansas Lottery says it misreported Pick 3 numbers for three dates because of a software glitch.

But it says it will pay players who picked the misreported numbers, as well as those with the correct winning numbers.

Lottery officials say the wrong numbers were reported Sunday, Monday and Tuesday. They say the random number generator used for Pick 3 drawings functioned properly, but the winning numbers reported to the public were not the numbers drawn.

Kansas Lottery Executive Director Ed Van Petten says the problem has been fixed.

The correct numbers for Sunday were 4-2-3, while the reported numbers were 1-6-7. For Monday, the correct were 5-1-6, and the reported numbers were 0-0-4. For Tuesday, the correct numbers were 8-3-9, and the reported numbers were than 0-7-1.

Kansas Lottery Security has verified that the Pick 3 winning numbers drawn on July 1 and July 2 are identical and correct.  The drawn number was 8-3-9 on both days.

Editor: The Lottery Post Kansas Lottery Results page displays the actual drawn numbers, not the misreported numbers.

How can they explain that mistake.   Sounds fishy...

    It seems like more and more stories of problems with RNG's keep coming up. No one wonder a lot of people don't trust them. No Nod

          The correct numbers

          for Sunday, 4-2-3, while the reported numbers were 1-6-7.

          For Monday, 5-1-6, and the reported numbers were 0-0-4.

          For Tuesday, 8-3-9, and the reported numbers were than 0-7-1.

           

          new convertion number for RNG???

          4       = 1

          2       = 6

          3*     = 7

          5 1 8 = 0

          6       = 4

          9       = 1

          although there are simple thing to understand a simply glitch while Type or human error

              If the majority of lottery players paid as much attention as LP members, these types of shenanigans wouldn't go on.

                I agree. I'm sure this story is basically going to get swept under the rug with the general public and the state can continue using the computers without a problem.
