Illinois Lottery Winners Checks Bounce

CHICAGO, IL (KTVI) -- Some lucky winners of the Illinois Lottery weren't so lucky when they went to cash their checks. That's because the checks bounced!

A lottery spokesman says checks to eight recent winners in the Chicago area bounced because of a clerical error.

A lottery employee forgot to approve the winning funds on deadline, so the bank didn't release the money.

The stunned winners eventually got their winnings which totaled $10,000.
