Virginia LotteryVirginia Lottery: Triple zeroes — Virginia Lottery players cash in on 0-0-0Rating:

Second triple drawn in a month yields more than $3 million in payouts

By Kate Northrop

Yesterday, the Virginia Lottery announced the results and prize payouts of the Pick 3 afternoon drawing in which players broke the bank after the combination 0-0-0 was drawn.

On Mon., Apr. 19, the afternoon Pick 3 drawing handsomely rewarded players who chose the popular triple combination 0-0-0.

"Triple numbers in the Pick 3 game are among the most popular combinations selected by players," the Lottery stated.

Players won a total of $3,087,300, while the Lottery took in $565,399 in sales for the drawing, about a fifth of the amount paid out in prizes.

Just one month ago, the triple combination 4-4-4 was drawn in the Lottery's Pick 3 game on St. Patrick's Day.

According to the Lottery, every player who wagered $1 on the Exact Order combination won a top prize of $500. The odds of matching all three numbers in exact order are 1 in 1,000.

Pick 3 drawings take place twice daily, once at 1:59 pm EST and again at 11:00 pm EST. Tickets may be purchased at any official Lottery retailer.

I'd love to know who had the most amount of slips purchased for a big payday!

Congrats to them all.

    Sure the lottery took a hit on that one draw, but they come out ahead on the other draws.

      It makes me think more people would play and they'd take the occasional losses.

      Went to their website and a friend of mine phone # 3417 came in exact order same day!

      They're lucky to still have live drawings.   Wish KLC would go back to mechanical balls, though labor intensive, to me gives players a better chance.

          $500. More like an emergency fund if you run out of everything else and still gotta get home.

          How many winners total? This article is like a plug or something.

            Don't think you could take the total amount and divide by 500 to get total # of winners as some have won lower prizes.

              Yeah look, I'm just saying. Let's take the 3 million since that was what this plug is saying. That gives less than10,000 maybe winners. Virginia has a population of 8.5 million roughly. I mean yeah for lotto players sure $500 I'd a nice win and all. But by next week it ain't nothing. So I hope all those winners have a little fun with it and all. But come on, this ain't really news. $3 million payout for a triple? Please. NY used to always max out at 5. And by the way if you want a real story about Virginia and money, why don't you mention the fact that Virginia is willing to pay people to move to their state and work remotely from home. In the realm of $20,000. So there that's real money for you to talk about. Sorry, that was west Virginia willing to pay people. Oh well, sorry to bug and bother. Haha
