Virginia Lottery Ticket Error: You May Need New Tickets

The Virginia lottery is warning players that bought Mega Millions tickets on Friday, Oct. 27, between 10:45 p.m. and 11:51 p.m. that there is an issue with the tickets purchased in that time frame.

A technical error happened when the Virginia Lottery was upgrading its gaming system, they say on their website. “A small number of Mega Millions tickets under the old game were produced/sold incorrectly in Virginia for one hour,” the website says.

But, all Mega Millions tickets will be honored alongside any prizes won by those tickets, the website says, though refunds and prize payments cannot be processed at Lottery retailers.

If you purchased your ticket during that time, Lottery officials encourage you to repurchase your ticket by 10:45 p.m. on Halloween for tonight’s drawing.

Also, if you purchased a bad ticket, you’re urged to contact the Lottery at 800-692-7778 or to sign and fill out the information on the back of your ticket and mail it to Virginia Lottery, P.O. Box 2489, Richmond, VA 23218.
