This looks like fun and would probably increase revenues tremendously. 

















 

"Pick 3 'Double Draw'
December 1st - 31st


Pick3 Double Draw


For every Pick 3 drawing in December 2003, the Illinois Lottery will hold a special Promotional Drawing with white and green balls. If the green ball is selected, the Lottery will hold a second Pick 3 drawing and will pay out on both sets of numbers!

How it Works: Beginning with the December 1 Midday Pick 3 drawing, a Promotional Drawing will be held immediately after the regular Pick 3 Drawing, and will be broadcast on WGN-TV and reported by WBBM Radio (780 AM). Ten white balls and one green ball will be placed in a drawing machine, and one ball will be selected. If the green ball is selected, a second Pick 3 drawing will be held and the Lottery will pay out on both sets of numbers! If a white ball is selected, there is no second Pick 3 drawing; however, the selected white ball will not be included in the next Promotional Drawing. Removal of the white balls will continue until the green ball is selected during a future Promotional Drawing, at which point the process starts over with ten white balls and one green ball.


This promotion applies only to the Pick 3 game (not to Pick 4)."

Good luck to everyone!

        This is a fun Xmas present. On Dec 4th, the green ball was selected and Illinios players had the chance to win twice for the price of one.  It was so coincidenal that the pick 3 number was 344 and the second pick was 998. If I had played Jazzy bar system I would have won twice.

        Let's hope other states follow Illinios' lead.
