S.C. Lottery Stops Selling Number "666"

South Carolina LotterySouth Carolina Lottery: S.C. Lottery Stops Selling Number "666"
The South Carolina Educational Lottery has stopped selling tickets Tuesday with combiations with "666" in it.

That means no more 6-6-6, 6-6-0-6, and 6-6-6-6.

Tuesday is of course June 6, 2006 — or 06/06/06, if you're so inclined. And apparently, a lot of people are.

Lottery officials say they've reached their liability on selling the above numbers, meaning they wouldn't be able to pay out all the winners if those numbers should be drawn. The lottery says they have a $3.5 million cap on Pick 3 and Pick 4 numbers. When the system reaches the cap, no more numbers can be sold with that particular combination.

"Selling out a set of numbers is not unusual for lottery players," said Ernie Passailaigue, SCEL's Executive Director, in a written release. "Many of our players are superstitious."

        You ain't gotta say nothin Girl :

        They said all there is to say with their actions( buying all them 666 tickets like the date would make the numbers fall that way ) .

        I'm not saying don't play pick 3, I'm saying use your brain if you do:

        A fool and his/her money are soon parted.

        Thud

          I'm sure if 3 people, instead of 2,  had won the MegaMoney in FL ($2 million jackpot on 6/6)  then everyone would be buzzing about the amount they won and say the money is "evil" or a sign of the end of the world.  2,000,000 divided by 3 = 666,666
