BYE BYE, $13 MIL­LION

MAN HAS RIGHT NUM­BERS — SEVEN SEC­ONDS TOO LATE

Metro Canada (Winnipeg) - - FRONT PAGE -

Joel Ifer­gan stands be­side a copy of his lot­tery ticket Thurs­day at his home in Mon­treal. The Supreme Court of Canada re­fused to hear his case claim­ing he is owed $13 mil­lion for hav­ing the win­ning num­bers from a ticket that was printed seven sec­onds af­ter the dead­line. Ifer­gan bought two lot­tery tick­ets in May 2008, but the one with the even­tual win­ning com­bi­na­tion popped out of the ter­mi­nal seven sec­onds af­ter the 9 p.m. dead­line. As Ifer­gan dis­cov­ered the next day, his Su­per 7 ticket had all the right num­bers but was dated for the fol­low­ing week.
