North Carolina LotteryNorth Carolina Lottery: North Carolina Pick 4 lottery players sweep $10.3 million with 0-0-0-0Rating:

Popular number combination lands game's largest payout in one drawing

By Kate Northrop

North Carolina Lottery six claim offices might be seeing an influx of lucky players claiming winnings after Saturday's Pick 4 drawing produced the popular number combination 0-0-0-0.

In just one drawing, the Lottery is paying out $10.3 million in prizes to players who held winning tickets for the combination 0-0-0-0.

It's the most ever won in a single Carolina Pick 4 drawing, beating out the previous Pick 4 record from Aug. 24, 2020 when the numbers 9-9-9-9 paid out $9.2 million in prizes that evening.

According to the Lottery, the drawing produced 3,326 winning tickets, 1,481 of which won the game's top prize of $5,000 by matching all four numbers in exact order for a $1 wager. Those who wagered 50 cents and matched all numbers in exact order will get a $2,500 prize.

It's no surprise that there were thousands of winners in Saturday's drawing. Quadruple number combinations, also known as "quads," are among the most commonly played sequences.

Earlier this year, the Lottery's Pick 3 game produced over 10,000 winners and paid out $4.3 million in one drawing when the triple number combination 5-5-5 was produced.

Winners in North Carolina have 180 days from the draw date to claim their prizes. The Lottery advised that a larger than normal number of winners and COVID-19 safety procedures could cause extended waiting times at regional offices early in the week. To claim prizes, winners must present Photo ID and proof of Social Security number.

Carolina Pick 4 drawings take place twice a day, once at 3:00 pm and again at 11:22 pm EST. Prizes amounts and odds can be viewed on Lottery Post's Prizes and Odds page.

Thanks to BevsPicks for the tip.

    Lucky players and not constrained by Liability Limited like we are in Kentucky.

    How nice that they have mechanical balls vs what we switched to because of the pandemic to RNG.

            Most people who play quads usually play all 10 of them every day, so I'm not too sure whether they make a profit or not. Especially if they play both midday and evening draws. 20 bucks a day adds up quick.

                  All state lotteries have their accounting records open to anyone who cares to download them, so it would be silly for them to lie about it.

                    Do they not have a cut-off amount? I think it's $7 million here in Florida.

                      Not all states have a cut-off. Some do.

                        Just more proof that NC LOs understands that an honestly ran Lottery is a 2-way Street.. and that sometimes the State has to take a hit..

                        Kudoos to whomever is the head-honcho there at NC's Lottery..

                        I'd spend my money with'em at least having the confidence that if I indeed lost, it most likely was an honest loss..

                        Can't say that for here in Ga..riggin & 1-digit away dodgin against what the Math immutablely says..all they'll git frum ME iz RAGGED & RAATTTED ON..!!

                          GA lottery website sure goes under a lot of system maintenance...down right now.

                          Seems to me lots of folks hit in Georgia.   Mail in a ticket and it the longest wait for the check to come of all the states I've played in.

                            Not all states have a cut-off. Some do.

                            California has the Slauson Cut-off where you have to be careful not to cut off your Slauson.
