The Pick 3 lottery drawing in North Carolina, United States came up with the unusual set of numbers 1-1-1.

According to news agency United Press International, 6,523 people won a total of $2.4 million in prizes.

The North Carolina Education Lottery said the lucky winners collected either $250 or $500.

It depends on how much they paid for their tickets, which means the more procey, the higher the prize.

Lottery officials then noted that the set of numbers appeared in the Carolina Pick 3 for the third time in just two weeks.

1-1-1 came out on the March 23 evening drawing and the March 28 daytime drawing resulted in the same numbers.

Last year, over 11,000 lottery tickets won in the Pick 3 drawing that came up with the numbers 3-3-3.

According to various news reports, it was about 25 times the number of winners in the previous day’s drawing.

Those with Pick 3 tickets receive a payout of $250 or $500, depending on how much they paid for their ticket.

Officials from the South Carolina Education Lottery said the 3-3-3 combination has come up only 13 times.
