Last night's (5/30/09) televised drawing of Florida Lotto and Fantasy5 was the drawing from one week ago (5/23/09). The drawings are time delayed by a few minutes on the local station here so they are not really "live" and someone made a mistake and played the wrong drawing.

I don't know if it was my local station (Jacksonville) that made the mistake or if it was the Florida Lottery video feed to the stations which was incorrect. I suspect it was the local station as the lottery is supposed to feed it live to the stations.

I thought the numbers looked familiar and when I checked the lottery website today the numbers were different than last night's tv (taped) drawing shown on the local station.

The Powerball drawing is a separate segment and was correct. Lotto and Fanatsy5 are televised together and played a few minutes later on the next commercial break.

Weird...

        I emailed the lottery about this but have not heard anything back from them.

        I usually have the tv on in the background and write the numbers down when they display them. The Powerball drawing came on first then the Lotto/Fantasy5 combined drawing during the following commercial break. Had I not had all three number sets written down on the same scratch pad page (the Powerball numbers were the correct draw), I might second guess if I really did see the wrong drawing video. The video drawings do have the date on them but I didn't notice that the date was wrong (wasn't really looking for the date - just the numbers)...

        I have seen the wrong draw dates/results printed in the paper several times over the years but never the wrong video drawing by the local station (it was probably the local tv station that mixed up the videos)...
