HARTFORD, Conn., Oct. 31 (UPI) -- Connecticut Lottery officials said more than 1,520 people won prize money by playing the number 666 in the Play3 Night drawing.

Officials said the prizes are based on the amount wagered by the players, so the payouts from Monday night's drawing will vary from $25 up to $2,500, WFSB-TV, Hartford, Conn., reported Thursday.


"Since the Play3 Night game began, 6-6-6 has been drawn a total of nine times in the nightly drawing with the last combination being picked on March 22, 1995," said Anne Noble, president and chief executive officer of the CT Lottery. "It's always fun and exciting when a triple single digit is drawn because so many people are particularly fond of playing these numbers."
