Connecticut LotteryConnecticut Lottery: Connecticut recalls 300 scratch tickets

A printing glitch on tickets for a scratch-off lottery game has prompted a recall of 300 tickets, Connecticut lottery officials said Friday.

Printing omissions were discovered on a "Tropical Fun" $10 scratch-game ticket by a customer. The mistake could lead customers to believe tickets were winners when they actually were not, said James Vance, president and CEO of Connecticut Lottery Corp.

About 300 tickets were deactivated because of the glitch, 102 of which were sold before the error was discovered.

Lottery officials said they will refund the cost of the tickets for customers who are holding tickets with misprints.

Customers who believe they may be affected should call the Lottery Claims Department at (860) 348-4037.
