Raleigh, N.C. — When the numbers 9, 9, 9, 9 were drawn Monday night in the Carolina Pick 4 drawing, thousands of people were holding winning tickets.
The total $9.2 million win, spread out over 2,574 tickets in which players picked that four-digit combination, was the most ever won in a single drawing in the game.
The game’s top prize of $5,000 will go to players who hold one of the 1,303 winning $1 tickets purchased for the drawing.
In Raleigh, one of them was Pauline Bordes of Bunnlevel, who said she would use the money to pay some bills. “I was a little bit surprised,” she said. “I play, but when it actually came I said, ‘Wow. It happened.’”
Another 1,095 people who purchased 50 cent tickets will win $2,500 apiece.
Brenda Todd of Durham said she’ll use some of her winnings to buy new tires for her car. “It’s a good thing,” Todd said. “It’s very special during these times.”
The odds of matching all four numbers in a Pick 4 drawing are 1 in 10,000.
