UPDATE: CT Lottery Adds Extra Drawing to Super Draw GameUPDATE:
Due to an error in the range of tickets eligible for the Super Draw drawing, a second drawing in this game will take place. PLEASE HOLD ALL TICKETS. Winning tickets from both drawings will be honored.
Cashing of these tickets has been temporarily suspended while the CT Lottery Corporation works with Scientific Games and the Department of Consumer Protection to prepare for an additional drawing.
Lottery Interim President & CEO, Chelsea Turner, explained that “due to human error, 100,000 ticket numbers were not included in this morning’s Super Draw drawing. Our goal, first and foremost, is to make our players whole. In order to do so, a second drawing will take place shortly that includes the corrected ticket number range. All winning tickets from both drawings will be honored.”
Ms. Turner further stated that “the CT Super Draw drawing was overseen by both the Department of Consumer Protection as well as an independent auditor, Marcum, LLC. These layers of protection are put in place to mitigate against mistakes and to make sure the drawing rules and procedures are correctly followed. However, there is a human element that is not always perfect. There will be an internal investigation that carefully reviews whether the proper protocols were followed and if not, appropriate action will be taken.”
