N.C. Woman Still Waiting For Lottery Payout
Gertrude Hill writes out checks to pay bills, but like most of us, she could use a little extra money to help pay. Hill thought she'd gotten extra money in March when she won the N.C. Education Lottery for $500. She went back to the Sam's Mart in the University area where she'd purchased the ticket to redeem it. (The clerk) took the ticket and he scanned and he said, 'I don't have that much money,' Hill said. The clerk told her to take the ticket to a grocery store chain that they wou

Lottery declares 'foul' during evening Daily Number drawing
Pennsylvania Lottery officials declared a foul during the Thursday night Daily Number drawing. Thursday night's official winning Daily Number combination is 1-7-2. The first numbered ball in the combination, 1, and the second ball, 7, were successfully drawn. The third numbered ball was drawn into the selection chamber but fell back into the mixing chamber when a drawing official prematurely closed the drawing chamber before the ball was fully into position. At that point, a foul was called

Did thousands of B.C. Lottery players throw away winning tickets?
Thousands of disappointed B.C. lottery players were confronted by full-page newspaper ads yesterday suggesting they may have been robbed of past winnings. While discovering they didn't win Wednesday's $38 million Lotto 6/49 jackpot, they also learned they could have held winning tickets for lotteries between Feb. 8 and March 30 and been told they were not winners. A consumer advisory said a software update to the Internet Number Checker inadvertently prevented draw results from being prese

Ontario Lottery players don't know who to trust
With widespread corruption or at least permissiveness of corruption coming to light in Ontario, lottery players don't know who to turn to when there is a problem. Take, for instance, the case of a player who realized his lottery ticket was mis-printed. Thomas Hong always does what the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corp. asks him to do check your tickets. And that's what he did on the recent March 16 Super 7 draw, but there was one hitch, he was missing four bonus lines on one ticket

W. Canada Lottery web mistake causes player confusion
For a moment, it appeared she'd lost her chance at $25 million well before the contest closed. A computer operator mistake led winning numbers of Western Canada Lottery Corp.'s (WCLC) Millionaire Life contest to hit the corporation's website Saturday, long before the scheduled Feb. 28 draw. That's not right. My first reaction was (to wonder) 'What kind of lottery is this if the numbers are up and they're still selling tickets?,' said Portage la Prairie resident Wendy Twiss. I

R.I. lottery machine prints invalid tickets
They entered the store with hopes of striking it rich through a winning lottery ticket. They exited with bogus tickets all dated from 1999. A lottery machine mix-up Thursday resulted in roughly 70 invalid tickets being printed at a Cranston convenience store, the Rhode Island Lottery said Friday. The problem was caused by a field service technician for the gaming technology company Gtech Holdings Corp. who accidentally replaced a malfunctioning machine at Oaklawn Mart with a model termin

Does $9 goof point to larger problems with Ontario Lottery?
When Ralph Landry finally wins the big one, he wants to know that the jackpot isn't accidentally given to somebody else. But the 67-year-old retired Air Canada employee has lost faith after he went to claim a small prize and found out that somehow somebody else got paid the money in another town. How does this happen? he asked. The self-proclaimed lottery addict bought his daily dose of lottery tickets at the Daisy Mart on Dec. 27, won $9 on a scratch-and-win Bingo and then within

Calif. Lottery misprint leaves 'winners' with nothing
Many people thought they struck it rich playing one of the California Lottery's Scratcher games. But they didn't, and lottery officials blame a misprint, an error, to explain why some folks got a free game ticket instead of thousands of dollars in cash. The Luna family thought Christmas had come early. My understanding is I won it fair and square. Lucy Luna was playing the $3 Scratcher Word Crossword. The ticket says scratch letters to reveal 10 words win $20,000. Lucy scratch

NJ Lottery tickets call Corzine 'Acting Gov.'
Gov. Corzine got an early Christmas present from the New Jersey Lottery a demotion to acting governor. A $2 scratch-off game, Holiday Lucky Times 10, that hit the stores Nov. 13 lists Jon S. Corzine as Acting Governor on a list of state and lottery officials, even though Corzine was elected to a four-year term in November 2005. I just bought a ticket, I looked at the back of it just to see what the prizes were and I happened to notice it said, Jon Corzine, acting governor,' said Ja

Newspaper apologizes for lottery results error
Editor's Note: The man should have gotten his lottery results from Lottery Post's Quebec Lottery Results page. Newspapers often post erroneous results, and mistakes and apologies cannot be re-printed until the next day. A Quebec man recently threatened to sue the Montreal Gazette after the paper's error made him think he'd won a huge lottery jackpot when he hadn't. Today the paper ran a Note to Readers on A2 from its publisher, Alan Allnutt. He apologizes for the mistake which he
