Pick 3 Pays Off Big for PlayersThursday, June 14th, 2012
Triples Break the Bank Last Night
According to Lottery officials, last night’s Pick 3 results of 2-2-2 broke the bank. The better-than $2.6 million prize payout was more than six times the amount wagered by players on the drawing. A happy night, indeed, for the holders of the 10,817 Pick 3 tickets who correctly matched the winning combination.
“Triples and quadruples have always been popular with our players,” said Carole Everett, the Lottery’s Director of Communications. “We know that whenever they come up, we’re in line for a significant payout.” Wednesday evening’s Pick 3 marks the second time this year for triples. The last occurrence was on April 25 when 0-0-0 was drawn.
