Actually, Delaware held the first Christmas Pick 3 drawing on Dec 25, 1979 (the winning numbers were 6-9-2). Strangely, it was the only time Delaware held a Christmas Pick 3 drawing. However, Delaware has held other Christmas drawings. In 1990 and then again in 1992 Delaware held Lotto drawings. (Lotto was discontinued on Jan 26, 2005.)
Interesting. I find it even more strange that Delaware had a Christmas drawing in 1979, but no drawing on New Year's Day a week later.
I saw Belgium had no Pick-3 drawing on Christmas, but they held lotto drawings for bigger games.
I have now begun to wonder: did Ohio start Christmas drawings after they moved the Kicker to coincide with Mega Millions after they cancelled the game that Kicker used to be aligned with? They could cancel that game on Christmas, but Mega Millions always draws on Christmas.
Today's winning 3-ball is going to be a number between 000 and 999.
In a lot of states, lotteries benefit education. That makes the REAL winners the only people who can't play!
