Players of the D.C. Lottery’s four-number game have been on an inconceivable roll of fortune.

The average payout for DC-4, the twice-daily game featuring a $5,000 top prize, has cleared 70 percent in six of the fiscal year’s nine months — 20 percent higher than normal. In May, the payout hit an all-time record of 87 percent.

In other words, for every dollar bet on the game, the lottery returned an unheard of 87 cents to winners. DC-4 paid out $6.5 million in prizes for the month.
