“Play4 Day” Number 4 - 4 - 4 - 4 Pays Out Record Breaking $5,042,500 in Prizes on Dec. 27
Unlike most holiday gift returns, a “Play4 Day” ticket with the winning number 4 - 4 - 4 - 4 for the December 27th drawing was one item that 1,275 winners statewide were only too happy to exchange for $5,042,500 in prize payouts. As a result, Play4 Day players showed up in droves today at CT Lottery headquarters in Rocky Hill and at Lottery High-Tier Claim Centers in New London, Norwalk, West Haven and Waterbury to celebrate amongst themselves as they claimed their winnings.
Since the Play4 Day
game began February 1998, 4 - 4 - 4 - 4 has been drawn a total of four times. The last time it was drawn was on October 4, 2005, that time with a payout of $2,712,500 making the December 27 drawing’s payout of $5,042,500 the 6th largest payout in the game’s history.
Because prize payouts in the game are based upon amount wagered, players could have won $2,500 (for a $.50 wager) up to $25,000 (for a $5.00 wager).
