For the second time this week, triple numbers were selected during a Missouri Lottery Pick 3 drawing.  The random selection of triple zeros during the Jan. 18 midday drawing marks the sixth time Pick 3 players have gotten lucky with that particular number combination since the game began.

“We had $93,096 in sales for that Jan. 18 drawing, and we paid out $247,440 in prizes on 850 winning tickets with some form of that number combination,” said Scott White, online product manager for the Missouri Lottery.  “That’s 265 percent in prizes!”

Earlier in the week, the triple combination 2-2-2 was drawn during the Jan. 16 evening drawing.

Pick 3 drawings are held each day at 12:57 p.m. and 8:59 p.m.  For more information about Pick 3 or to see a historical list of winning numbers, visit the Lottery’s website at Molottery.com.
