    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, 2018 drawing," CT Lottery said on its website.

    Anyone who bought a ticket is urged to hold onto them because all tickets sold are eligible to win. The tickets cost $10.

    Tickets went on sale Sunday, Oct. 15 and were sold until they ran out or until 2 a.m. on Monday, whenever came first.

    Cashing in of the tickets has been temporarily suspended while the CT Lottery Corporation works to conduct an additional drawing. Please check the Lottery’s website for updated information as it becomes available.

    Anyone who may have discarded their ticket should send an email to the CT Lottery and they will investigate the claim.
