WEIRD NEWS: Pool Parking

Your odds of winning in the Arizona Lottery were very high between September 28th and October 3rd -- at least if you played on one machine in Phoenix. 

The machine spit out the same winning numbers for six straight days -- and nobody noticed. It wasn't until an observant -- and apparently honest -- lottery player pointed it out that officials acted. They've pulled the machine out of circulation and are investigating whether it was a glitch or if someone tampered with it.

Gregg Edgar, the executive director for the Arizona Lottery, says he's not embarrassed by the screw-up. He explains, "What I'll tell you, our players are extremely intelligent people and they know what they're doing when they play these games."

The lottery is refunding losing tickets played during that period. (KPHO-TV)
