PICK 3 PLAYERS CASH IN ON TRIPLE 8s
Missouri Lottery players whose favorite Pick 3 numbers are 8-8-8 cashed in on a sweetheart of a deal following Saturday night’s drawing.
The total payout for the triple 8s on Saturday, May 4, of $628,026, represents more than four times the amount wagered by players.
There were 2,158 winners who chose the winning numbers.
Historically, the number combination 8-8-8 is played more in Missouri than any other combination.
Pick 3 players are not only cashing in on triple 8s, but also have the chance to win a 2002 Ford Excursion plus $500 cash, a Philips 64" rear-projection TV or $598 cash in the Pick 3 "Missouri Road Trip" promotion, which runs through May 12.
