If you didn't win the Kentucky Lottery's Pick 4 drawing at midday on Monday, maybe you won Monday's second midday Pick 4 drawing. 

An error during the first drawing led to a second drawing, according to a Kentucky Lottery spokesperson who said prizes will be paid on both sets of winning numbers drawn for the midday Pick 4.  

The Kentucky Lottery official said one of the balls that was supposed to go into the first chamber of the draw machine bounced into the second chamber as it was being loaded. That led to nine balls being the first chamber and 11 in the second. Each chamber is supposed to contain 10 balls.

The winning numbers from Monday's first midday Pick 4 drawing were 1-7-6-5. Thirty-eight winners will receive a payout of $11,300.

The winning numbers from Monday's second midday Pick 4 drawing were 9-3-4-9.

Again, as a result of this, the Kentucky Lottery will pay all prizes from the first drawing AND the second drawing.
