5/23/2014 2:37:26 PM

COLUMBIA, SC (May 23, 2014) – Arguably one of the South Carolina Education Lottery’s most popular number combinations, 3 – 3 – 3, was drawn Thursday evening.

Upwards of 8,300 Pick 3 players in South Carolina are celebrating triple 3’s, a combination dubbed “Lucky Day” by those that play it.

Depending on the price paid for the ticket, these winners took home either $250 or $500 per play.

The Lottery’s Pick 3 prize payout eclipsed $2 million.

“Pick 3 players certainly have a lot to smile about this Memorial Day weekend,” said the Lottery’s Executive Director Paula Harper Bethea. “Triples are by far the most popular number combination played by our Pick 3 players. I know our players across the state are very happy, indeed.”

Thursday’s drawing was just the seventh time 3 – 3 – 3 has been drawn by the Lottery. The last time 3 – 3 – 3 was seen was back in April of 2011.
