Trips of 1-1-1 provide $2.4 million in Pick 3 prizes

April 4, 2021 Posted by NC Lottery at 3:49 PM

The numbers 1-1-1 popped up again in Sunday afternoon’s Carolina Pick 3 drawing, adding up to a $2.4 million win for lottery players.

Sunday’s drawing produced 6,523 winning tickets that matched all three numbers.

The winning numbers are known as “trips” among players of the Pick 3 game. Trips are some of the most popular combination of numbers played.

This is the third time in two weeks that trips of 1-1-1-have come up in Pick 3 drawings. The other times occurred in the evening drawing on March 23 and the daytime drawing on March 28.

In any drawing, any set of numbers have the same chance of being drawn as any other set of numbers no matter how often they have come out before. Each drawing is a singular, random event. The odds of matching all three numbers in a Pick 3 drawing are 1 in 1,000.

Congratulations to all our winners!

Yes, I think all the games are rigged. Like someone said, if you don't know somebody that works there, your chances are slim to none.

NCEL are you listening to your players? Because without players there is no lottery.

Yeah I am ready for trip 5's to come again. It seemed like the last time trip 1's came, the trip 5 followed the next day.

I agree with Antonio L’s comment. Something in the water is not right. Starting to seem fixed to me and y’all need new machines one.

So how many times is this number going to come up 111. 3 times in 2 weeks something is wrong, This needs to be investigated.

I can't get out of the house much, please have it where I can play Pick 3 and Pick 4 from home along with the other games. Thank You

Triples within 2 weeks? Aah...maybe, but 2140 midday back to back, I have a really hard time believing it’s random. Ready to give up on your (fixed) games..
