8 IL Lottery Checks Bounce

Share this post

Eight lottery winners in Illinois were stunned when they went to cash their checks and they bounced. The Illinois Lottery confirms they bounced checks worth nearly ten thousand dollars. The smallest was for 847-dollars won by a Chicago woman -- the largest: more than 25-hundred dollars. That one belonged to Charles Cinquegrani from Norridge. Lotto official Mike Lang says it was human error - an employee forgot to approve the winning funds in time so the Lotto's bank - US Bank - didn't release the money when the checks arrived.  Lang says they're looking to possibly amending their procedures to minimize the likelihood that this could happen again.
