WILMINGTON, Del. (AP)- Two men are suing the Delaware Lottery which they say owes them millions for winning tickets they purchased after a computer glitch generated multiple matching numbers.
    
A lawsuit filed Nov. 18 by John Brookings Jr. and Richard Spence says the men received two winning tickets, worth $1 million each, after playing Keno, a bingo-style lottery game, last December.
    
However, the Delaware Lottery refused to honor the tickets.
    
State Lottery Director Vernon Kirk, also named in the lawsuit, said in a statement in February that the winning tickets were the result of a computer malfunction that resulted in five tickets being generated with the same numbers over a period of about 20 minutes.
    
Neither side represented in the case would comment on the lawsuit.
