Illinois Lottery bounces checks

The Illinois Lottery bounced eight checks for lottery winners.

The checks bounced May 1 and were worth almost $10,000.

Lottery officials say it was a human error that caused the bounced checks. They say a lottery employee forgot to approve the winning funds.

The lottery's bank didn't released the money when the checks arrived.

Despite the confusion, everyone received their winnings.
