But I doubt I would have spotted it anyway.  Grrrr!

I bought 5 lines for the state superlotto.  At home I noticed that instead of 5 + Mega #, I have only 4 + Mega. The Second Chance code is also missing beginning numbers. Looks like the tape was misaligned when it printed. Hope I can go in tomorrow and they give me a new one without any long explanations or delay. I will be checking my tickets for this in the future.

 

Oh, noes!!!!1!!  I also bought 1 mega and 1 powerball and they too are misprinted.

    Hopefully the barcode and ticket codes are intact.  If they are it shouldn't be a problem.

     

    Check the State Lottery Report Card
    What grade did your lottery earn?

      nice to know if they make an error they will replace it.
      I have never had that happen before.
      maybe I should start checking tickets more closely

        I'm not sure if the bar codes are intact.  They look intact but since everything else is cut off they may have been, too. The ticket code on the state lottery ticket is cut off and I cant use it to enter the second chance drawing. 

        I do know the person who sold them to me since I have been going to that store to buy tickets for years.

          Yep... Always look at the ticket after you buy it and never ever put it in your shirt pocket, especially on laundry day.

          Never give up.  Banana
