Play3 Night Number on April 16 Pays Out Over $458,000 Prizes to WinnersIt was a win-win-win for lucky lottery players who had 0 – 0 – 0 on their Play3 Night tickets for the April 16 drawing. Statewide, 1,317 winning wagers were sold and after all winning claims are presented, $458,650 in prize money will be paid out by the CT Lottery. This is the second largest payout in Play3 Night history for the triple zero sequence.
Since the Play3 Night game began, 0 – 0 – 0 has been drawn ten times in the nightly drawing with the last combination being picked on March 9, 2006. “0 – 0 – 0 is a very popular number, so we expect to see a steady stream of winners over the next few days at Lottery headquarters, retailers and our High Tier Claim Centers to cash in on their prizes,” said Diane Patterson, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for the CT Lottery.
Because prize payouts in the game are based upon amount wagered, players could have won $250 (for a $.50 wager) up to $2,500 (for a $5.00 wager). High Tier Centers are able to cash CT Lottery prizes up to $5,000.
Though the bulk of winners will most likely redeem their tickets in the next few days, players with winning tickets have 180-days from the date of draw to collect their winnings.
Play3 Night drawings are held nightly at 10:29pm. Tickets cost from $.50 to $5.00
