Pick 3 Double Draw produces big wins

March 9, 2018 Posted by NC Lottery at 11:34 AM

A big congratulations to our Pick 3 players, who are starting the weekend off with some good luck! They got a second chance to win during Thursday night’s drawing when the Red Ball was drawn.

The numbers 6-9-5 came out in the first drawing, and 1,342 tickets won $160,332 in prizes.

Because the Red Ball was drawn, a second drawing took place immediately following the first. The numbers 4-2-6 came out during the Double Draw, and 4,641 tickets won $722,930 in prizes for a total Pick 3 payout of $883,262.

The Double Draw machine for Friday’s drawing has been reset, and will have six white balls and one red.

When the Red Ball is drawn, two Pick 3 drawings take place. This is the second time this month that the Red Ball’s been drawn.

The promotion runs until March 31. You can read more about how it works here.

Good luck!

How can a number like 528 not come out in almost two years if the lotter is random? Ijs NC Lottery
Important question. Each drawing is a random event. It doesn't matter if 5-2-8 came out the day before or hasn't come out in two years, the chance of those numbers being drawn are always the same. Just like flipping a coin. Heads may have come out twice before, but the chance that it will come out the third time is not less or more, it is always a 1 in 2 chance.
