Scratch n' Match Meltdown

Scratch n' Match Winners

The New York Daily News gave away more that it bargained for Saturday as a misprinting in the papers Scratch n’ Match game made $100,000 winners out untold thousands of New Yorkers rather than the intended one winner.

The Daily News is in damage control mode, though they’ve yet to apologized for the error that caused some “winners” to spend money they don’t have and now probably aren’t going to get. The Daily News blames the firm that runs the contest for the error, but has agreed to add $1 million dollars to a drawing for all of those who were supposed to win $100,000.
