S.C. Lottery finally draws quad in Pick 4 Eve draw

South Carolina LotterySouth Carolina Lottery: S.C. Lottery finally draws quad in Pick 4 Eve draw

By Todd Northrop

For the first time ever, the South Carolina Lottery has drawn a 'quad' combination in its Pick 4 Evening drawing.

A quad is a combination where all four digits are the same.  Sunday night the lottery drew 2-2-2-2, marking the first time such a combination was drawn in the evening draw.

Quads have been drawn three times previously in the Lottery's midday draw, but never in the evening.

Lucky winners of Sunday's evening Pick 4 drawing could become anywhere from $2,500 to $5,000 richer depending on the price they paid for the ticket.

According to SCEL, the lottery's claims center in Columbia was packed Sunday and winners were continuing to file on Tuesday.

Why play all 2s? One of the winners in line said she dreamed the numbers, while another winner picked them because a friend told her to do so, said SCEL spokesperson, Holli Armstrong.

Loyalty paid off for one woman, who waited three years to see 2s drawn. A man in the crowd admitted he played the combination for the first time on Sunday, stated Armstrong.

The quadruple combination put the lottery in the red for the July 8 drawing with a prize of $1.6 million. A feeling that has Pick 4 winners smiling since the nine and a half year drought of 2's has ended.

The state's first Pick 4 drawing was held on Jan. 27, 2003.

Quad's are a rarity, but obviously for those patient and willing to put down their money, payday will arrive sooner or later.

Liked the women's account of how she dreamed of the 2222. Nice to see the state in the red for a change!  Mad

      It's not that far fetched spartan. I just ran a quick check on quad's for my home state of NH on 2222. The last time it hit was

      Wednesday March 7, 1990. That was over 22 years ago!!! It only took S.C. about 9 years to accomplish the same feat.

       

      I don't know about the rest of the states, but my feeling is that 2222 is one of those quad numbers that very rarely comes up.

      (As opposed to "0000", "9999" or "1111").

        It's most likey that the next draw will have similar results i.e 1-1-1-1 or 3-3-3-3 or 4-4-4-4 or 5-5-5-5 or 6-6-6-6 or 7-7-7-7 or 8-8-8-8 or 9-9-9-9

              Agreed. Probably some affluent wall streeters, who had inherited billions from a wealthy uncle. They also most likely had "insider" information

              from the S.C. lottery executives, who leaked the quad number only hours before the  duped "drawing".  BS

                2222 is the most frequently drawn quad in Georgia. Has been drawn five times between 1997 and 2009.

                No quads seen in Georgia at all since 2222 last fell 10-30-09 midday.

                  I gave up a long time ago on the local pick 4 or Numbers game as we call it here in Mass. because the payout sometimes is as low as under $3000 on straight wagers. I have to add that sometimes the payout can be as high as $6,500 but I cant get over the fact that you could hit straight and pocket only $2,855Thumbs Down. That would be extremely depressing. So I play mainly the Mass Cash(pick 5) or Megabucks (6/49) when I decide to play.

                  It's a futile effort.

                    Thanks for that feedback KALO35. As I said earlier, I had no idea how the odds were for quads in other states. Interesting hit patterns.

                          Since December 1981 there have been 299 quads in all states. 99 quads on the midday, 200 quads on the evening.

                          spartan1707 - 365 days per year and 2 draws per day = 730 draws per year. 2003 to 2012 is 9 years. 9 years X 730 draws = 6570 draws, or NOT even the 10000 possible combinations in a draw.  So much for your rigged theory
