Here's an interesting clip - the Illinois Lottery drawing on WGN Channel 9 where on this particular night, the balls did not drop into the mixing chamber for the "Cash 5" game and the winning numbers had to be selected off camera and given via an on-screen scroll about 20 minutes later, during the 7 O'Clock Movie airing of "Vertigo".

Featuring Merri Dee doing the drawing. Not sure who the voiceover is by, although it sounds a little like Joan Kohn. Also features supervision by Sheldon Epstein - partner with the accounting firm of Laventhol & Horwath

The Winning Daily Game number was 4-8-7. The Pick 4 winning numbers were 4-3-1-3. The Illinois State Lottery's Cash-5 game winning numbers were 33-32-09-14-12.

"Here's Merri Dee with todights three Daily Game machines..."

This aired on local Chicago TV on Monday, July 18th 1988 at a few minutes before 7:00pm. (and then at 7:21pm)

The music for the drawing sounds familiar, what's it called?

I bet this is not the first time the machines like the one for Ca$h 5 causes technical problems, because during the news on Channel 2, they did a story about the lottery drawing snafu.

ChitownTVFan: It is Beethoven's "Fur Elise" but in a "Hooked On Classics" version.

I know some people was mad as heck that night, lol!! The way the words at the bottom of the screen was soooo slow that I can't imagine how the people felt waiting for the numbers to see if they won, lol!!!
