1957 Was A Good Year For Lottery PlayersThursday, August 23rd, 2012
Pick 4 Combination Breaks the Bank
Lottery officials are reporting that yesterday’s Midday Pick 4 results of 1-9-5-7 broke the bank – and then some. The better-than $1 million prize payout was more than three times the amount wagered by players on the drawing.

“Number combinations derived from birth years are popular with our players,” said Carole Everett, the Lottery’s director of communications. “Whenever the first two Pick 4 digits are 1 and 9 we know to expect a significant payout.” This afternoon’s Pick 4 payout marks the second time this month that a winning number combination broke the bank. The winning Pick 3 numbers on August 15th , 6-6-6, also paid out more than it brought in.
