Red Ball drawn in Wednesday night’s Pick 3 drawing

October 15, 2020 Posted by NC Lottery at 9:11 AM

Hurray for Pick 3 players!

The Red Ball was drawn during Wednesday night’s Pick 3 drawing. This means you had two chances to win.

So, be sure to check your numbers closely. Remember—the Double Draw is guaranteed to occur once every seven days.

Double Draw Results!

  • First chance: 5-8-9. 1,144 tickets won a total of $160,824 in cash prizes.
  • Second chance: The Double Draw: 7-5-5. 904 tickets won a total of $164,723 in cash prizes.

Because the Red Ball was drawn, the Double Draw machine has been reset. Thursday night’s drawing will have six white balls and one red.

Double Draw could occur any night of the month in our Pick 3 game. Our fingers are crossed for you!

understand the frustration when you can see between the cracks and see clerks checking out the tickets before you get them. Suggest that the machine be in plain sight so the customers can actually see the tickets coming out. a lot of retailers have the machine hidden behind the tickets and can not be seen. When i see this i start going to other stores. i go to different towns just to sight see and have some stores that USED TO BE my go to stores...NC Lottery
Thanks for sharing your suggestions, William. In most stores where lottery tickets are sold, you should be able to see the ticket bring printed from the lottery terminal. The retailer should hand the ticket immediately to you. You can then check the date and time printed on every ticket. You also have the option of purchasing your tickets directly from a vending machine as well!

I don't understand how this works. :/ I bouth the NC PowerBall ticket. Now there's something about a second drawing but there are only 3 numbers :/ NC Lottery
Hi Candace, This is referring to the game Pick 3 - this game is unrelated to Powerball. To participate in this promotion, you will need to purchase a Pick 3 ticket for an evening drawing in October. You can learn more about the promotion here:

Hello, NCEL I have a super idea for you all to excite the pick 3 players. How about a RED,GREEN, BALL Combo. Put one RED BALL and one GREEN BALL and five WHITE BALLS and if either COLORED BALL is picked then it resets, but the RED BALL = Double Draw and GREEN BALL = Double PAY. Let's really create some excitement NCEL!NC Lottery
Thanks for the great suggestion, Angela! We will pass it along to the folks who create our games and special promotions.
