North Carolina LotteryNorth Carolina Lottery: 3-3-3 in North Carolina Lottery Pick 3 drawing delivers nearly $5 million in lottery winningsRating:

Second Pick 3 triple of the year for North Carolina Lottery players

By Kate Northrop

3-3-3 is the latest triple combination to come up in a North Carolina Lottery's Pick 3 drawing, and local players are celebrating the nearly $5 million prize payout.

On Wednesday afternoon, the North Carolina Lottery's Pick 3 game drew the lucky number combination 3-3-3, delivering $4.9 million in prizes to happy winners across the state.

Number combinations with the same three digits are often called "triples" or "trips" and are a popular choice among lottery players, which is why the prize payout in this Pick 3 drawing is larger than usual.

Another recent triple in North Carolina happened in October 2021, the game paid out $4.3 million in prizes after drawing the triple combination 5-5-5.

A month after that, the Lottery's Pick 4 game paid out over $10 million when the "quad" 0-0-0-0 was drawn.

There was a total of 12,406 winning tickets that matched all three numbers. Winning tickets on a fifty-cent wager won $250 while those on a $1 wager won $500.

The odds of matching all three numbers in a Pick 3 drawing are 1 in 1,000. Players can view a complete list of odds and prize payouts for Pick 3 by visiting the Prizes and Odds page at Lottery Post. 

Players who won prizes the momentous drawing have 180 days from the draw date on Feb. 9 to claim their winnings.

The Lottery holds Pick 3 drawings twice a day, once at 3:00 pm EST and again at 11:22 pm EST. Players may choose their own three numbers or select the Quick Pick option to allow the computer to choose numbers for you.

    Placing a bet on a sum 9 triple is a bit risky for me. Congrats to the players who played 3-3-3.

      NCEL rocks.   No RNG just good old fashioned Mechanical Ball Drawings.

      Apparently no Liability limit/cutoff for players.  Two things we'll never see in Kentucky and no doubt many other states to. 

      So happy for their players.

       

      Well back to the Superbowl!

            No offense, but you would not think that way if you lived here.  When most states get 2-3 trips a month, on average, ours usually fall in the "pre-draws" or pre-scams as we call them.  Our drawing is rigged, they just pre-record the video of the machines with numbers being drawn to get the "ideal " payout that they are looking for.  We are lucky if we get 1 trip a month once they pad their accounts with extra $$ so it won't put a dent in their accounts.  See my signature for a thread with more details. 

            As someone else mentioned, we did not have a 3 in a day draw for all of December and 35 or so day drawings total, but yet they fell at night, this is not possible in numerology. 

            In any case, congrats to those that did win, I am happy for you and betting that many got back money they had already put on them for a while.

              Triples fall on average once every 100 draws. A high payout could prevent a triple from falling. Remember the lottery is in business to make money. Every states have pre-draws, but not all of them show what was actually pulled.

                I would think if you mess with the random like nature of the lottery you just create a different sort of bias that should be obvious in the history of the game.

                  Georgia just had triple 3's too...just over $3.415 million paid out.

                  Kentucky had triple 8's same day, just over $790K...close to the $1 million cut-off!
