May 15, 2023 | Lottery News

COLUMBIA, SC (May 12, 2023) – A record payout of more than $4.2 million was won by South Carolina Education Lottery Pick 3 players on Thursday.

16,852 winning straight plays won with 3 – 3 – 3 in yesterday’s evening drawing.

Depending on the price paid for the ticket, winners took home either $250 or $500 per play.

The previous record payout, of 13,998 winning straight plays, was set on Mother’s Day two years ago when triple 4s were drawn on Sunday, May 9.

Triple number combinations are by far the Lottery’s most popular played sequences, with Thursday’s evening drawing producing nearly 20 times the number of wins compared to the day prior.

This marks the fifteenth time 3 – 3 – 3 has been drawn by the Lottery. The last time 3 – 3 – 3 was seen was back in October of 2021.
