New York Daily News game error leads players the wrong way

Thousands thought they'd hit the jackpot. But it turns out it was a printing mistake. The error led thousands of people who'd played the Scratch N' Match game in Saturday's New York Daily News to mistakenly believe they'd won up to 100-thousand dollars in cash and prizes. They were shocked to learn that they didn't when they read a correction in the paper. Daily News officials are blaming the agency that runs the contest for the error. The paper tells people scratched off the wrong numbers to submit a claim to the agency by July eighth. Meanwhile, the paper has ordered an independent investigation into how the mistake happened.
