This doesn’t happen very often, so when you get a quad (four numbers, all the same) it’s worth pointing out.
It happened in Pennsylvania this week and the result was a big win for more than 3,000 players.
Who bet 7777 in the state’s Big 4 draw.
Pennsylvania had to pay out $7.7 million.
Each winners received either $5,000 or $2,500 depending on whether they purchased a $1 or a 50 cent ticket.
The all-sevens draw has come up twice for the Pa. lottery since 1980.
The last time a number quadrupled in Pensylvania was in 2008 when 2-2-2-2 came out.
The April 3 Powerball jackpot, by the way, is $103 million.
Good luck everyone.
