Georgia LotteryGeorgia Lottery: Georgia Lottery schedules Cash 4 bonus drawingRating:

Makes up for mechnical error Wednesday

ATLANTA, Ga. — During a review of the Wednesday, Oct. 16 Cash 4 midday drawing, Georgia Lottery officials determined that a technical malfunction occurred with a ball machine.  During the routine post-drawing process, a mechanical issue was identified in one of the draw machines, which negated the proper mixing of a ball set.

As a result of the malfunction, the Georgia Lottery will hold a bonus Cash 4 drawing, giving players an extra chance to win.  The bonus drawing will be conducted following the regularly scheduled midday drawing at 12:29 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 23.

All winning tickets from the Oct. 16 Cash 4 midday drawing are valid for redemption.  Winning numbers for the drawing were: 4-2-1-0.

All tickets purchased for the Oct. 23 Cash 4 midday drawing will be eligible for the regularly scheduled drawing and the bonus drawing.

The Georgia Lottery takes the security and integrity of its games very seriously.  Many steps go into a successful Georgia Lottery drawing.

The ball sets for each game are selected randomly and certified by outside auditors.  Each draw machine and ball set used is placed through a series of pre-drawing tests to ensure the absolute randomness of the results.  The entire process takes approximately three hours for a drawing that takes less than 60 seconds.

The Georgia Lottery conducts over 2,700 live drawings each year.

Nice move Georgia Lottery. At least you treat your customers with respect. Some lotteries would have swept it under the rug.

    Not reallky, this is like the 3rd or 4th time they have screwed up during Midday draws. They had to have a bonus draw because they did not do it the last few "malfunctions"

      How much prize did the winner get? It is really nice that they prioritize the concern of their players. It is one way of showing that their players can really trust them.
