During a review of the Wednesday, Oct. 16 Cash 4 midday drawing, Georgia Lottery officials determined that a technical malfunction occurred with a ball machine. During the routine post-drawing process, a mechanical issue was identified in one of the draw machines, which negated the proper mixing of a ball set.

- The winning numbers were: 0 2 9 5
All winning tickets from the Oct. 16 Cash 4 midday drawing are valid for redemption. Winning numbers for the drawing were: 4-2-1-0.
All tickets purchased for the Oct. 23 Cash 4 midday drawing were held eligible for the regularly scheduled drawing and the bonus drawing.
The Georgia Lottery takes the security and integrity of its games very seriously. Many steps go into a successful Georgia Lottery drawing.
The ball sets for each game are selected randomly and certified by outside auditors. Each draw machine and ball set used is placed through a series of pre-drawing tests to ensure the absolute randomness of the results. The entire process takes approximately three hours for a drawing that takes less than 60 seconds.
