SC Lottery error not paying winnings on game because of 'programming error'

SC Lottery error not paying winnings on game because of 'programming error'”

That's what happened to lots of people on Christmas Day.

SC officials say a computer glitch mistakenly left some people playing a holiday game with what looked like winning tickets.

The fault lay in a programming error of the South Carolina Education Lottery's computer system vendor, Intralot, officials said on Tuesday, which resulted in an overabundance of winning tickets being produced, CNN reported. That means the ticket would win the top prize of $500. But people soon learned they couldn't cash in. All other lottery tickets and games are continuing as usual.

Coggins has been waiting for a response from the South Carolina Education Lottery. He says some customers who paid $5 won up to $2500 on the game. "I think they should either honor the tickets or give us our money back", Coggins told WYFF. People are, "mad. So mad".

"I had been promising them for years and I thought I would finally get to, and now I can't", she said.

They went on to say that Holiday Cash Add-A-Play game sales and validations will remain suspended until further notice.

Lottery officials said they will make another announcement later this week once a review is completed.
