Delaware Lottery Glitch Leads to $2 Million Lawsuit
Two Delaware men claim they are lottery winners who haven’t received their payments after a computer glitch spewed out several winning tickets.
John Brookings Jr. and Richard Spence played Keno, a bingo style lottery game, where players win based on how many numbers they match and how much money they’ve bet.
Copies of the winning tickets show that both Brookings and Spence each won $1 Million from the same game, only minutes apart.
The state did not honor their winning tickets and refused to award them a prize because their win was attributed to a computer malfunction. The error reportedly lasted 20 minutes where 5 other tickets were generated with the same numbers.
The lottery released a statement saying, “The lottery regrets any inconvenience it caused to our players.”
The men filed a lawsuit against Delaware Lottery on November 18th. The suit claimed that the state is violating the rules and regulations that govern the lottery system.
Do you think the state of Delaware should honor their tickets despite the glitch? Let us know in the comment section!
Father and Son Arrested for Stealing Lottery Tickets
A father and son duo were caught red-handed when they tried to claim the prize from a stolen lottery ticket on Saturday, November 26th.
Avery L. Durflinger Sr., 58, and Avery L. Durflinger Jr., 35, were charged with burglary, $500 worth of theft, and $300 in property damage for their actions. The number of tickets stolen remains undetermined.
Officials say the pair broke into Iroquois Market in Illinois on Saturday morning and later attempted to claim a prize from one of the stolen tickets at a different store.
The pair was apprehended when officials determined their ticket was stolen.
Like father, like son! We hope the Durflinger men have learned their lesson. A judge has set a $50,000.00 bond for each man while they await trial.
