COLUMBIA, SC (May 22, 2019) – Last evening, 6,587 Pick 3 winners in South Carolina celebrated triple lucky 9’s.

Depending on the price paid for the ticket, these winners will take home either $250 or $500 per play when claimed. The odds of winning are 1 in 1,000.

The total Pick 3 prize payout eclipsed $1.6 million for Tuesday’s evening draw.

The triple number combination is hands down the Lottery’s most played sequence, with this drawing producing 20 times the number of winners compared to the previous day’s draw.

This marks the eighth time 9 – 9 – 9 has been drawn by the Lottery. The last time 9 – 9 – 9 was seen was back in July of 2016.

Winning Pick 3 tickets worth up to $500 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.
