SOUTH CAROLINA LOTTERY CHRISTMAS WINNERS WON’T GET PRIZES

posted by Beth Bradley - 

The South Carolina lottery announced it will not be delivering more than $30 million in prizes to players with winning tickets printed as a result of a computer glitch. Between 5:51 and 7:53 PM last December, South Carolinians playing the state lottery were treated to tens of thousands of winning Holiday Cash Add-A-Play tickets. Each worth up to $500. It was an improbable lucky streak that was, in fact, too good to be true. And on Wednesday, the South Carolina lottery announced it will not be delivering more than $30 million in prizes to players who bought tickets during the brief window “because they had been produced in error.” A computer glitch was behind the anomaly that caused gas stations and convenience stores to issue about 71,000 winning plays.
