This shows the truth that how some lotteries can be controlled!!!  Computerized lottery drawings are not fair to the public and if we really knew our True odds of winning then we all would not play these kind of games and the different lotteries would Lose Alot of money!!!!  I Wonder what (Jim695) thinks about this Error on this game, lol. !!

      Yes, a bunch of whiners. The state and GTECH have already stepped up and paid far more than they owe. Rather than getting screwed, the players have done far better than they had any reasonable expectation of doing. That they got their hopes up is too bad, but that's all it is.

        It is very clear that players cannot profit from errors.

        We have all seen many cases where there was an error, and the player got NOTHING.


        I commend Virginia on reaching what I think is a fair resolution to the problem.
