This is a notice from their website. 

 

The official midday Cash 3 and Cash 4 numbers for Sept. 17, 2007 are 133 for Cash 3 and 6121 for Cash 4. Players can claim prizes at any retailer location. The TEL will also pay players who played the following numbers for the Sept. 17 midday draw: 216 for Cash 3 and and 0573 for Cash 4. Players must mail these tickets to the TEL, P.O. Box 280360, Nashville, TN 37228-0360. Please provide a return address and/or claim form. Thank you.

 

I know that errors happen from time to time; however, with all of the latest controversy this doesn't help any at all...  Atleast they are paying both sets of numbers.  However, they didn't say why.

How are you going to win if you don't play?

    Also interesting to note...  They don't have the drawing on the internet.  (Not like we are missing much).

    How are you going to win if you don't play?

            Obviously, they don't want to say what happened, and they are in CYA mode.  But really, trying to cover-up incompetance only makes things worse.  Maybe they're in f ear of their state congressman who wants an investigation.  That man perhaps may find that no one who works there can even spell "Lottery" without a spellchecker.

                  SmileyDid lottery sales go down significantly since all this started in Tn.  Are people boycotting or do the masses continue to play as usual.

                    This is the explanation from The Tennessean. Com Newspaper website.

                    Third glitch in a month plagues lottery

                    Right and wrong numbers can collect


                    Lottery players may not have known it, but they had two chances Monday to win the Cash 3 and Cash 4 midday drawings.

                    The lottery broadcast the wrong winners briefly, and then decided to pay out winners of the real numbers and the incorrect ones.

                     

                     

                    The mistake was the third in a month for the agency, which has faced complications after switching from pop-up white-ball drawings to computer-generated numbers.

                    The actual winners were 133 for Cash 3 and 6121 for Cash 4. The state also will pay out for the mistaken numbers, 216 and 0573.

                    Spokeswoman Kym Gerlock estimated the lottery would have to pay up to $25,000 in additional prize money.

                    The slip-up was the fault of a Tennessee lottery employee who pushed a button that sent numbers from a test of the random-drawing computer to television stations instead of the numbers generated during the live drawings, Gerlock said. The error was noticed within seconds, and the television stations were notified, Gerlock said.

                    Earlier this month, a misprint on tickets left some players thinking the Powerball jackpot was $29 million instead of $15 million. In August, a programming mis-key prevented certain numbers from being drawn in Cash 3 and Cash 4. Those mixups also resulted in refunds.

                          I was wondering the same thing. I said that I wouldn't play but I must confess. I have played .50 str 111 and 666 and Powerball. I have played more in TN online.

                          I love doubles and remember, it's just a game!!!!!!
