A Moncton area resident was checking if she won the lottery at a corner store. The terminal said she won what seems like a trillion dollars, although the top prize was $20,000. The funny part is what Atlantic Lotto spokesman, Robert Bourgeois said (with added emphasis):
"I think the first thing consumers should do is to check their tickets manually, check them themselves, either by looking at a newspaper, a website or that kind of thing and not rely on technology," he said. "Because, at the end of the day, a lottery terminal is a computer, and just like a computer, funny things can happen."
I guess newspapers and web sites do not get their info via computers, nor do they use computers to publish.Via the CBC.
