I've had a machine start to spit out my ticket then pull it back in, and I've had one sound like it generated a ticket but it never came out. In both cases I contacted a CS person and they opened the machine to retrieve my ticket. It was in there, but encountered a glitch trying to leave the womb.
I wonder if the person before you had a problem and just left, so the ticket you bought forced theirs out while yours stayed in the machine for the next person?
I wish they could give us draw terminals like they have behind the counter -- I've never seen them mess up like the vending machines do. They'd have to keep the vending machines for scratch offs, but it would be well worth it if I could trust that I could get the ticket I want.
As for the machine spitting out stuff you didn't pay for and not knowing what to do? I'd take it -- that amount might make up for all the stuff I've had to buy because the machine didn't work after I put my money in, so I'm forced to buy something I didn't want. I've also walked away a few times when I just had a dollar or two in and couldn't get the machine to spit anything at all out and I didn't have time to wait for someone to fix it. So I'd keep their mistake and call it even.
