12/21/2015 10:16:45 AM

COLUMBIA, SC (December 21, 2015) – The South Carolina Education Lottery will honor two sets of numbers for Friday evening’s televised Pick 3 lottery drawing. The Lottery will honor both the correct Pick 3 results certified by the independent auditor (9 – 2 – 0) and the incorrectly announced draw results (6 – 2 – 0) for the Friday, December 18 evening Pick 3 drawing.

Evening Pick 3 Drawing Results for Friday, December 18, 2015:
9 – 2 – 0 - audited results
6 – 2 – 0 - deemed valid

Players holding Pick 3 tickets bearing the numbers 6 – 2 – 0 for the Friday, December 18 evening 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 6 – 2 – 0.

Payouts for 9 – 2 – 0 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 know our integrity, 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.
