CHARLESTON, W.Va. (April 6, 2018) - The West Virginia Lottery's Daily 3 players won big on Thursday (April 5, 2018) when the numbers 9-9-9 were drawn. The triple nines led to a total of 678 tickets sharing a hefty prize payout of $169,500 for the night.
"Congratulations to all of the winners. Whenever we see three of the same number drawn on a given night we know that prize payout is going to be much higher than usual, and that some of our players are going to have a great day because of it," said West Virginia Lottery Public Relations and Drawing Manager Randy Burnside.
This is the game's highest prize payout since the numbers 2-2-2 were drawn on November 29 of 2017 and a total prize liability of $331,500 was shared by 1,326 tickets.
Daily 3 tickets cost only $1 and can be purchased at West Virginia Lottery retail locations up until 6:49 p.m. each draw day. Drawings are conducted Monday through Saturday at 6:59 p.m. and televised statewide. The top prize for matching all three numbers in exact order is $500.
