Calif. SuperLOTTO Plus Ticket-Printing Problem

California LotteryCalifornia Lottery: Calif. SuperLOTTO Plus Ticket-Printing Problem

Due to a computer error, the California Super LOTTO Plus draw dates printed on tickets issued Sunday morning, October 5, 2003, incorrectly show the draw date for Saturday, October 11, 2003. The affected tickets are actually valid for the Wednesday's October 8, 2003 Super LOTTO Plus draw.

The nature of this ticket printing problem was identified at 9:30 am Sunday morning, and statewide LOTTO wagering was immediately suppressed. The cause of the error has been determined and corrected. At 11:42 am Sunday, LOTTO wagering was enabled and all tickets issued now show the correct draw date.

Lotto tickets issued by retailers Saturday evening, after the draw, had the correct draw date of Wednesday, October 8, 2003.

ALL TICKETS ISSUED SUNDAY MORNING WITH THE WRONG DATE OF SATURDAY (OCTOBER 11. 2003) ARE IN FACT VALID FOR WEDNESDAY'S DRAW (OCTOBER 8, 2003) REGARDLESS OF THE DATE SHOWN ON THE TICKET.

The California Lottery apologizes for any inconvenience or confusion this matter may have caused.

The jackpot for Wednesday's draw is estimated at $43 million.

    If that happened with just about anything else, wouldn't there be a "recall"?
