LANSING, Mich. — It's not uncommon for players of the Daily 3 and Daily 4 midday and evening drawings to play some common patterns of numbers, like 1-2-3-4 or 0-0-0.
According the Michigan Lottery, one of those days was Tuesday, Jan. 6, when the Daily 4 evening drawing revealed the winning numbers as: 1-0-0-1.
That meant that winners cashed in on more than $7.4 million in prizes.
Players bought 8,050 tickets with the winning numbers. Those players won prizes ranging from $275 to $5,000, depending on wager type, according to a release.
The pay out and winners "dwarfed typical Daily 4 numbers," Lottery officials said.
Over the last 30 days, an average of 1,416 players won a prize each day in the midday and evening Daily 4 drawings each day. The total average prize payout for the Daily 4 game is about $690,000 per day.
There are five ways to play the Daily 4: Straight, Boxed, Two-way, Wheeled and 1-Off.
Prize amounts vary based on the way a number is played, and on the order in which the winning numbers are drawn. Players may select a four-digit number, or choose an easy pick ticket.
