Play3 Night 0-0-0 Delivers Over a Half-Million Dollars in PrizesIt is a well-known fact that those who enjoy playing the CT Lottery’s Play3 Day and Night draw games are particularly fond of playing the same single digit number in sequence. As a result, when the highly popular number 0-0-0 was picked last night, over a half-million dollars will be paid to winners across the state.

A total of 1,383 winning wagers were sold for the Play3 Night drawing on September 9, 2018. After all winning claims are presented, a total of $513,075 in prize money will be paid out by the CT Lottery.

Since the Play3 Night game began, 0-0-0 has been drawn a total of 9 times; it was last picked at night on March 11, 2017.

Because Play3 prize payouts are based upon the amount wagered, players who had 0-0-0 on their Play3 tickets can expect to win from $25 up to $2,500 per wager in prize money. Though the bulk of the winners will most likely redeem their tickets in the next few days, players with winning tickets have 180 calendar days from the date of draw to collect their winnings. High-Tier Claim Centers are able to cash CT Lottery prizes up to $5,000.

There are 1,000 possible number combinations in the Play3 game, using the digits 0 - 9. Because each ball number has the same odds of being drawn (1 in 10) and all drawings are completely independent, mutually exclusive events, the chance of having 0-0-0 drawn in sequence is the same as any other number combination.

Play3 Night drawings are held at 10:29 PM. Tickets cost from $.50 to $5.00.
