MAHWAH, N.J. (AP) -- Two New York men are suing the New Jersey Lottery after they threw out a Powerball ticket worth $1 million.
Salvatore Cambria and Erick Onyango, of Suffern, New York, argue in their federal lawsuit that the lottery didn't quickly update its website with the winning numbers from the March 23 drawing.
Cambria tells The Record (http://bit.ly/1lgeKlD ) newspaper he asked Onyango to check the website soon after the 11 p.m. drawing. Cambria tossed the ticket when the numbers didn't match. The men now think the site was showing the previous drawing's numbers.
They say they realized they had won the next day. But by then, their ticket was on its way to a landfill in Canada.
The men say they have two other tickets showing serial numbers that prove they had a winner.
