COLUMBIA, SC (October 15, 2012) – When the South Carolina Education Lottery draws three identical numbers, Pick 3 players can’t help but smile.

The triple number combination is hands down the Lottery’s most played sequence.

In less than a week, two Pick 3 drawings have posted sought after triples, amounting to a staggering $3.4 million in prizes paid to winners. That’s eight times the Lottery’s sales for these drawings.

Saturday’s Pick 3 evening drawing saw those faithful to repeat 1’s winning anywhere from $250 to $500. Last Monday, evening Pick 3 players celebrated back-to-back-to-back 5’s.

Combined these two drawings produced five times the number of winners from the same drawings on the previous week.

Winning Pick 3 tickets can be cashed at lottery retailers statewide.

Players have 180 days from the date of the drawing in which to claim their prizes.

Winners should always sign the back of their ticket first to safeguard their prize.
