News Release
Media Advistoy - 08/13/19

Salem, Ore; Aug. 13:

Advance 24-draw quick-pick Powerball tickets printed between Friday, Aug. 10 and Monday, Aug. 12 listed incorrect dates for the Oct. 26, 29 and Nov. 2 draws. While the dates on the tickets are off by one day, the tickets are valid for the actual draws.

A coding mistake in the Powerball ticketing system caused the draw dates to print one day off on approximately 30 tickets. A player brought the issue to Lottery’s attention on Monday Aug. 12, and Lottery’s gaming vendor worked immediately on a fix. Tickets are printing correctly today.

Players who purchased Powerball tickets that included the Oct. 26, 29 and Nov. 2 draws have two options: hold on to the ticket and present it for validation if winning numbers are drawn for any of the draws listed; or contact Lottery at 503-540-1000, or lottery.webcenter@state.or.us, to arrange a new ticket with the same numbers.
