RALEIGH — The winning combination in the state’s twice-a-day Pick 4 lottery turned out to be 1-1-1-1 on Saturday night, and it also turned out that 1,995 tickets beat the 1-in-10,000 odds of matching all four digits in order, state officials said Sunday.
The resulting payout to winners was $7.5 million, the largest single win in the game so far.
A same-four-numbers drawing is called a “quad,” lottery officials said. It had happened four times before.
People can pick their own combination or let a lottery computer generate one for them.
Officials said quads are popular among people who pick their own numbers.
A player with a winning 50-cent ticket gets $2,500 in the Pick 4. A winning $1 ticket brings $5,000. Winners have to go to N.C. Education Lottery offices to claim their prizes and have 180 days to do so.
