You are not a winner. That's the message from the Virginia Lottery.

Officials say a computer glitch is to blame for more than 600 misprinted Fast Play Super 7's lottery tickets.

According to the agency, the tickets incorrectly appear to be winners, with pay-offs of $2 to $7,777.

Officials say the lotto tickets will not be honored, but the buyers aren't completely out of luck.

The Virginia Lottery says players can apply for cash payments of up to $2,000.

The money comes from a settlement between the agency and the game's vendor.
