Question

Is this considered false advertising?

I just revived my Local newspaper and in it there was two vouchers from a local car dealership listing their sale they have going. I was probably only meant to get one chopper but by luck i got two. At the bottom left there Is a scratch off thing like on a scratch of lottery ticket and nest to it it says Match the numbers 8,13,65,68,92. And win. Well I scratched both off and they both have the same number. The voucher says prizes are from $100.00 cash to a 2013 dodge charger. I went to the dealership and revived no prize or anything. Is this false advertising and if so can they be sued for this.

Unfortunately, no. I'm sure you'll find that the wording is phrased in such a way that it never actually says that the prizes are tied to the number on the ad. I agree that it's underhanded and a bit of a scam, but it's common enough that they know how to do it without technically breaking the law.

It's misleading advertising. The small print tells you the odds of winning are not good. You can sue but you cannot win.
