Ran up to the local convenience store around 10:30PM to buy some FLA F5 Tickets. Handed clerk an old ticket I'd won a free ticket on , he gave me back 10 FREE tickets, I didn't argue just took them but sure don't know how that happened. then I purchased 10 more tickets for tonight ( 9/9/07). came home and showed the wife who was quick to point out they were ALL for tomorrow 9/10/07. I've never heard of that happening. Why would they sell tickets for tomorrow, when the current drawing for 9/9/ has not been held yet ? Computer glitch ? has this happened to anyone else. ? I'm usually pretty good at watching DATEs on tickets as a friend a while back was checking his tickets on a site that was always one day behind for some reason and never knew it for a YEAR Until I pointed it out he had the wrong numbers for that day. ALL YEAR LONG !
The Florida Lottery website says this for Fantasy 5:
Drawings are held seven days per week at approximately 11:15 p.m. Eastern Time and carried on 13 Lottery-affiliate TV stations. You can purchase tickets until 10:40 p.m. for that night's draw. Tickets purchased after 10:40 p.m. will be for the next draw.
You probably bought the tickets after 10:40pm. You might want to buy your tickets earlier.
