Ky. Pick 4 lottery error brings two payouts

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- Lottery players who bought Pick 4 tickets for Monday's midday drawing have an extra chance to win, thanks to an error that occurred during the drawing.

Lottery officials say a ball that was supposed to go into the draw machine's first chamber inadvertently bounced over to the second chamber when loaded. The result was nine balls in the first chamber and 11 in the second.

The lottery then held a second drawing and announced numbers from both drawings would be honored, although payment for the second set won't be immediately available at lottery retailers. The lottery will announce on its website at when and how payments will be available.

The numbers for the first drawing were 1-7-6-5, and the second drawing was 9-3-4-9.
