Triple 8’s mean $3.7 million in Pick 3 prizes
December 10, 2012
For the fourth time in as many months, Pick 3 players are “seeing triple.” The combination 8-8-8 appeared in the evening Pick 3 drawing for Sunday, Dec. 9, leading to $3.7 million in prizes.
A total of 5,765 tickets were $1 exact wagers, making them worth $500 each. An additional 3,488 tickets were $.50 wagers and are worth $250 apiece. Prizes won playing draw games must be claimed within 180 days.
In the afternoon drawing on Sept. 15, players won $1.3 million on triple 9’s. On the evening of Sept. 5, the combination 4-4-4 led to $2.1 million in prizes. Players won $1.6 million on the afternoon of Aug. 11 when triple 7’s were the winning numbers.
Of the 1000 possible number combinations that could be the winning numbers in a Pick 3 drawing, ten of them are “trips.” Congratulations to the winners and best of luck to everyone in the next drawing!
I have been waiting since 2006 to win something, anything. Finally somone in my town won a big prize. It wasn't me but at least there is hope for us in this little town.
what are the odds of the same number that came out yesterday evening came out again on Sunday afternoon? How can that be possible?
Why bother posting comments when they are never posted
OK....... I will keep that in mine when I play my number. Thanks for responding. I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday season.
