What about JD Tennessee Honey?  Cheers

JD Tennessee Honey?

Yeah, I'd give it a shot! (no pun intended)

    MSN just 4 minutes ago Mass lottery player hit scratch ticket for 1 million and lottery officials claim 2200 tickets were misprint and not paying off. I said it would happen and boy did not take long to prove my point. Casino's have done this now lottery trying and bet they get away with it.

      Did the lottery say how long they have known that there were 2200 misprinted tickets?I smell a BIG lawsuit against the Mass.lottery.

        No non of the articles I have read said when lottery knew about it but they will lie anyway to avoid lawsuit.Do you really think any Government agency will admit to being wrong LOL or making money off us regular people by misleading us ...AS most commented state kept tickets in stores hoping to make more money until the got caught with this, now come out with we tried to get them off the shelves LOL yeah right. Not the first time Mass has been caught doing wrong thing in Lottery cases yet never end up paying or anyone losing jobs or going to Jail.Funny how that works.

              oh my... ANYONE can have clever arguments like... facts and reality... if you are going to base your arguments on that... well then... 

              and on a non fluffy-headed response level:  oops.  I'm sorry, I missed that.  I will attempt to pay more attention next time.  Leaving

                  I would be willing to bet that had any of these duplicates been the winning numbers for jackpot the prize would have been not paid and would be told SORRY Machine GLITCH,isn't this what casino's have gotten away with and not had to pay out.I say Glitch or not you pay out and sue the software company but that is never the way it works,little guy will always lose out everytime.

                  Why would Illinois not pay the jackpot for a duplicate ticket?  The lotteries' TOTAL payout for the jackpot prize is the same whether one ticket wins it or one hundred do.  Assuming only one player has two or more lines of the same numbers on the ticket, he or she would get the same prize amount as he or she would if only one line had the jackpot winning combo.  I could see it getting ugly though if a duplicate ticket won the match 5+0 prize, especially if it was a Megaplier ticket.

                    one of those glitched tickets could have won the jackpot but then i doubt it
