2/16/2011 1:54:35 PM

COLUMBIA, SC (February 16, 2011) – The South Carolina Education Lottery displayed the incorrect midday Pick 3 drawing results during last evening’s televised lottery drawing. The Lottery will honor both the Pick 3 results certified by the independent auditor (2 – 2 – 6) and the drawing results aired (2 – 2 – 1) for the Tuesday, February 15 midday Pick 3 drawing.

Midday Pick 3 Drawing Results for Tuesday, February 15, 2011:
2 – 2 – 6 - correct and audited
2 – 2 – 1 - mistakenly reported

Players holding Pick 3 tickets bearing the numbers 2 – 2 – 1 for the Tuesday, February 15 midday draw must take or mail their tickets to the Columbia Claims Center for processing and prize payment. Sign the ticket back and complete the required information if mailing a ticket. Lottery retailers will NOT be able to pay on Pick 3 tickets bearing the number 2 – 2 – 1.

Payouts for 2 – 2 – 6 may be claimed as a player would do for any winning ticket.

“The Lottery is a transparent organization. These are our loyal players, and we honor our mistakes,” the Lottery’s Executive Director Paula Harper Bethea said. “Our players expect nothing less, and we are going to pay both sets of numbers.”

Players with questions or concerns can call the Lottery toll-free at 1-866-736-9819.
