COLUMBIA, SC (January 30, 2017) – A record number of South Carolina Education Lottery Pick 3 players started their weekend with a win.

Nearly 14,000 players won with 4 – 4 – 4 in Friday’s evening drawing.

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

Triple number combinations are by far the Lottery’s most popular played sequences, this time resulting in a $3.5 million prize payout.

Friday night’s draw surpasses the game’s previous record number of winners set just last month, when triple 5s paid out $3.4 million to 13,657 winners on December 8.

This marks the tenth time 4 – 4 – 4 has been drawn by the Lottery. The last time 4 – 4 – 4 was seen was back in December of 2012.
