One ticket won a combined $1,100, and 15 won a combined $200, according to the CT Lottery.
The lottery will honor winning tickets from both this drawing and the Jan. 1 drawing.
These are the tickets that won twice:
“Please note that a small number of players may win in both drawings on a single ticket. If you happen to be one of these lucky players, you must either mail your ticket into Lottery headquarters to claim your prize or come to Lottery headquarters. CT Lottery headquarters is located at 777 Brook Street in Rocky Hill. Players who win in both drawings on a single ticket will not be able to cash their ticket at retail locations,” CT Lottery said in a statement.
Two CT Lottery employees have been put on administrative leave pending the investigation into the Super Draw error.
On New Year’s Day, the lottery announced that the second drawing for the Super Draw would take place after 100,000 ticket numbers were not included in the drawing because of a human error.
“Due to an error in the range of tickets eligible for the Super Draw drawing, a second drawing will take place shortly,” the CT Lottery posted on its website.
On Jan. 5, the CT Lottery apologized for the mistake, explained what happened and said two employees were put on paid leave pending the investigation.
“We apologize that the January 1, 2018 CT Super Draw drawing did not go as planned. Although there were many layers of protection and security in place, human error occurred, despite multiple practice drawings. The incorrect ticket range was entered into the Random Number Generator, the machine that draws the winning numbers. The ticket number range sold was 100,001 – 314,601. The ticket number range was incorrectly entered as 100,001 – 214,601. As a result, any ticket numbers above 214,601 were not included in the January 1, 2018drawing,” CT Lottery said on its website.
You can check your ticket by entering your ticket numbers at CTLOTTERY.ORG under the CT Super Draw page. The “Did I Win?” section will tell players if they are a winner on a single drawing or both, and the total prize amount won.
Tickets from both drawings may now be cashed.
Players who won in both drawings on a single ticket will not be able to cash that ticket at retail locations.
If you have one of the tickets that won in both drawings, you must either mail your ticket to Lottery headquarters to claim your prize or come to Lottery headquarters at 777 Brook St. in Rocky Hill, CT 06067.
Anyone who discarded his or her ticket should send an email to the CT Lottery and they will investigate the claim.The Connecticut Lottery held the second CT Super Draw drawing today after 100,000 ticket numbers were left out of the drawing on New Year’s Day and 16 tickets… ]]>
