In the final days of September, “Lady Luck” was clearly on the side of CT Lottery players who picked the winning “triple digits” in the Play3 Day and Night
Triple digit numbers 9-9-9, 2-2-2, 0-0-0 and 4-4-4 were drawn over a five day span from September 25 through September 29 in the Play3 Day and Play3 Night games. Statewide, a combined total of 8,544 winning triple digit wagers were sold during that time period. After all winning claims are presented; $3,291,175 in prize money will be paid out by the CT Lottery.
“Four triple digit wins within such a short period of time is exciting for players,” commented Diane Patterson, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for the CT Lottery. “Players have won more than $3.2 million playing CT Lottery’s Play3 games. It’s simply incredible.”
Of the triple digits drawn, the number combination 4-4-4 drawn on September 29 ranked as the third largest payout ever in the Play3 Day game history at $1,225,350 in prize money. Since the Play3 Day game began, 4-4-4 has been drawn a total of four times in the daily drawing with the last combination being picked on December 30, 2010.
Because prize payouts in the game are based upon amount wagered, players could have won $250 (for a $.50 wager) up to $2,500 (for a $5.00 wager). High-Tier Claim Centers are able to cash CT Lottery prizes up to $5,000.
