Two-thousand winners pick 0-0-0-0 in Carolina Lottery

Posted: Updated:
RALEIGH, NC -

The numbers 0-0-0-0 in Saturday afternoon’s Carolina Pick 4 drawing added up to a $7.8 million win for lottery players, the most ever won in a single drawing in the game.

The drawing produced 2,014 winning tickets that matched all four numbers. The game’s top prize of $5,000 will go to players who hold one of the 1,002 winning $1 tickets purchased for the drawing. A $2,500 prize will go to players who hold one of the 1,012 winning 50 cent tickets.

The winning numbers, 0-0-0-0, are known as “Quads” among players of the Pick 4 game. Quads are some of the most popular combination of numbers played. The odds of matching all four numbers in a Pick 4 drawing are 1 in 10,000.

Lottery officials remind winners that they have 180 days to claim their prizes. Due to the large number of winners, players should expect extended waiting times to complete their claims if they choose to visit a regional office on Monday and Tuesday.

The $7.8 million in prizes set a new record of prizes won in a single Pick 4 drawing. The previous record Pick 4 win occurred on Aug. 11, 2012 when the numbers 1-1-1-1 paid out $7.5 million in prizes.
