Men Sue Lottery After Throwing Away Winning Ticket

Two men who live in New York filed a complaint in NJ Federal Court suing the Lottery Commission.  The men claim they bought a ticket with 5 of the six winning numbers, but didn’t know they won and threw out the ticket.  The men blame the Lottery Commission stating that the winning number wasn’t updated on the lottery website immediately after the numbers were drawn.  Additionally, one of the men checked the numbers using his Iphone and said because the numbers are so small, it was difficult to see the date of drawing listed on the lottery website.  The men claim they can prove the ticket numbers they had and are looking for their $1 million dollars.  Whether they prevail or not is another question.
