Winning the Lottery Is As Easy as 1-2-3!
It’s a winning day for lucky lottery players who had 1 – 2 – 3 on their Play3 Day tickets for the August 24 drawing. Statewide, 4,010 winning wagers were sold and after all winning claims are presented, $693,293 in prize money will be paid out by the CT Lottery.
There has been a steady stream of players with winning tickets arriving at Lottery headquarters and the three High-Tier Claim Centers to cash in on their prizes, which can range from $250 (for a $.50 wager) to $2,500 (for a $5.00 wager). Though the bulk of winners will most likely redeem their tickets in the next few days, players with winning tickets have 180-days from the date of draw to collect their prize.
Since the Play3 game began, 1 – 2 – 3 has been drawn seven times. Most recently, it was drawn on August 24, 2010, exactly one year ago to the day!
