Misprinted lottery ticket sparks short-lived ecstacy

`Ecstasy turned to agony for a South Korean lottery winner when he presented a winning ticket only to be told he could not claim the prize of one million dollars because of a printing mistake, officials said Tuesday.

The Prime Minister’s Commission on Lottery has called off the sale of Speetto-2000 instant scratch-and-win tickets after printing errors resulted in the circulation of more than 10 first-prize tickets instead of the regular four, a spokesperson for the Office for Government Policy Coordination said.’
