There was a problem and tickets printed wrong. I think they should pay. What do you think??

Statement From The Virginia Lottery About Fast Play Super 7s

October 20, 2008

The Virginia Lottery sincerely apologizes for the error with its new game Fast Play Super 7�s.

Unfortunately, there was a technical problem when the software was loaded on the computer gaming system. The problem caused misprinted tickets. Thanks to the Lottery�s retail partners, the error was caught by 9:00 a.m. Sunday, October 19 and the Lottery stopped selling the game immediately. The Lottery sold 2,336 tickets before sales were suspended. Of those, 609 printed incorrectly. The misprinted tickets may lead players to believe they have won a bigger prize than they actually won.

The Lottery continues to gather all of the facts surrounding this situation, and we ask that all players be patient. Players should keep their tickets or fill out a claim form at a Lottery office. We are in contact with our gaming partner, GTECH, who made the error. The Lottery is also speaking with the Attorney General�s office to determine if it is appropriate to pay the expected prizes, even though every ticket specifically states �Tickets are void if�. misprinted� or do not meet the state Lottery validation tests.�

The Lottery is extremely disappointed about this error and is working diligently to determine the proper solution for our loyal players and retailers.

 

 Good Luck,

Blackie.

    I think they should have to pay. If a player pays money for a ticket and it says they won, then the lottery should pay up or give them their money back.

      If the ticket is a misprint, they should get their money back.

      If you know your number is going to hit, have patience and then KILL IT!

      You never know when you will get another hit.
