N.J. lottery goof

January 8, 2008 5:07:55 AM PST
Some New Jersey Lottery players are scratching their heads after the camera on the live Pick 4 drawing showed a "7" while the announcer called out "5."

Lottery officials say the announcer was right and the cameraman goofed, failing to pan to the next number.

Monday afternoon's winning numbers were 3-7-7-5. But the cameraman focused on the third number when he should have panned to the 5.

Independent auditors found the announcer's call was right.

Getting the right numbers in sequence was worth $3,274.50.
