TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ The Kansas Lottery says it misreported Pick
3 numbers for three dates because of a software glitch.
But it says it will pay players who picked the misreported
numbers, as well as those with the correct winning numbers.
Lottery officials say the wrong numbers were reported Sunday,
Monday and Tuesday. They say the random number generator used for
Pick 3 drawings functioned properly, but the winning numbers
reported to the public were not the numbers drawn.
Kansas Lottery Executive Director Ed Van Petten says the problem
has been fixed.
The correct numbers for Sunday were 4-2-3, while the reported
numbers were 1-6-7. For Monday, the correct were 5-1-6, and the
reported numbers were 0-0-4. For Tuesday, the correct numbers were
8-3-9, and the reported numbers were than 0-7-1.
