No definite timeline for sales to start again
By Kate Northrop
The New Jersey Lottery announced last night that ticket sales for the Fast Play family of games was suspended due to a vendor software issue.
Tickets for Fast Play are printed by Lottery terminals and are also available at self-service vending machines. When a player buys a Fast Play ticket, it immediately informs whether they won.
Upon discovery of the problem, the Lottery immediately halted ticket sales. The suspension is temporary, but there is currently no definite timeline of when sales will resume. The Lottery said that it will provide additional information on the official government Lottery website when more information becomes available.
"Vendors Northstar New Jersey and IGT are actively investigating the matter," a press release reads.
It is not clear what exactly the software issue is or how it affected the Fast Play family of games.
In the meantime, the Lottery advised players to keep all Fast Play tickets until further information is made available.
