Winning was as easy as one, two, three in last night’s CT Lottery Play3 Night
drawing for the lucky lottery players who had 1 – 2 – 3 on their Play3 Night tickets for October 15. Statewide, 6,185 winning wagers were sold and after all winning claims are presented, $989,243 in prize money will be paid out by the CT Lottery.
Since the Play3 Night game began, 1 – 2 – 3 has been drawn a total of fifteen times in the nightly drawing with the last combination being picked on December 21, 2005.
“Currently, the number 1 – 2 – 3 is the fourth most commonly played triple digit sequence in the Play3 Night game,” said Diane Patterson, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for the CT Lottery. “On the heels of the number of triple digit prize payouts we saw in late September, the Play3 Day and Night game continues to be a big ‘winner’ for our players.”
Because prize payouts in the game are based upon the 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.
