ROCKY HILL, CT (WFSB) -

The Connecticut Lottery's Super Draw game was played on Tuesday after a New Year's Day error led to two employees being put on leave. 

The winning numbers, including that of a $1 million winner, were posted on the Connecticut Lottery's website.

The Connecticut Super Draw was originally held on New Year's Day. However, Connecticut Lottery officials said there was "an error in the range of tickets eligible."

Lottery officials announced that the next drawing would be on Jan. 16. 

They stated the "incorrect ticket range was entered into the Random Number Generator," which is the machine that drew the winning numbers for the game. 

Connecticut Lottery officials explained that the ticket number range sold was 100,001 – 314,601 while the ticket number range was incorrectly entered as 100,001 – 214,601. That means more than 100,000 tickets were not involved in the drawing. 

Officials from the CT Lottery and the Department of Consumer Protection are investigating the incident and pending that investigation, two unidentified employees were put on administrative leave.

Officials said they will honor the winning tickets from Jan. 1 drawing. Players were previously advised to hold onto their tickets as a second drawing would be held.

"A small number of players may win in both drawings on a single ticket. If you happen to be one of these lucky players, you must either mail your ticket into Lottery headquarters to claim your prize or come to Lottery headquarters," Connecticut Lottery said in a statement on Friday. 

The headquarters is located at 777 Brook St. in Rocky Hill.

The lottery said cashing for all other CT Super Draw winning tickets will occur normally. As is the case with all Lottery games, any winner who wins a prize greater than $5,000 must go to CT Lottery headquarters to claim the prize. 

Officials from the CT Lottery explained what players should do if they threw out their tickets on their website. To learn more and make a claim, click here
