Wanna get lucky?

Purportedly the digits for the lottery commission, the toll-free number turned out to be a sex line.

The mix-up proved to be a real boner for state lottery officials, who quickly owned up to the mistake. The office discontinued the phone number in 2010 but inadvertently had left it on the website.

Lottery officials said the outdated number made its way onto tickets when an old roll of paper stock was used to create new ones.
