Lottery officials blame ‘human error’ after incorrect Mega Millions numbers published after May 10 drawing

New York State Lottery officials released a statement after ‘human error’ resulted in the incorrect winning numbers being published for a recent Mega Millions drawing.


“During the May 10, 2022 Mega Millions drawing, human error resulted in the incorrect input of the winning numbers in New York State, resulting in an incorrect publishing of the Mega Ball number,” officials said in a statement on Wednesday. “The New York Lottery is actively working to resolve the issue as quickly as possible. The Lottery has temporarily suspended prize payments for all Mega Millions tickets and all Mega Millions players should hold on to their tickets for the May 10, 2022 drawing until the issue is resolved.”

The correct winning numbers for the May 10, 2022 drawing are 15-19-20-61-70 and Mega Ball 9.

It’s unclear what the next step will be for state lottery officials as they navigate this issue.
