A human error during a live Tri-State Pick 4 drawing Tuesday led to a second drawing Wednesday. Winners of both drawings will be paid, according to a news release from Maine State Lottery. That decision as made by members of the Tri-State Lotto Commission — comprising lotteries in Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont.

Tuesday, a pre-test ball was left in the machine and was discovered after the draw, something that hasn’t happened in years, said Michael Boardman, marketing manager for Maine State Lottery. Pick 4 tickets with the winning numbers of 3 – 2 – 8 – 1 for Tuesday evening in response to the error must be claimed at the Maine State Lottery office in Hallowell.
