2 Numbers on 1 Lottery Ball in Irish Lottery!
Scandal! There are 2 different numbers on one lottery ball!
In each lottery, rules and draws are carefully set up so that no mistakes or even frauds can occur. All the more so in games where the main prize is in millions of pounds. The same is true of the Irish lottery where each ball is numbered. Drawing of the balls is watched by thousands of viewers on TV screens or on the Internet. All in all, there are many who can see the slightest mistake or suspicious behaviour.
Can you imagine the upsurge that would follow if you saw two different numbers on one drawn ball? That's what happened in the Irish lottery! One of the attentive viewers posted a shot at Twitter, from which it was clear that there was a number 33 on the red ball numbered 38. The reaction was almost immediate.
It was not a scam but an optical illusion!
Everything was a bit different from what it seemed. The number 33 on the ball number 38 was unintentionally myde by one of the cameras, whose shot created an illusion due to light reflection, and a certain part of the number 38 was simply erased. However, many beetors did not see this, and the lottery spokeswoman had to come up with the explanation of the whole quaint situation. In addition, the draw is under proper supervision, so the words of the lottery agent are only to be fully trusted.
