April 13 (UPI) -- Lottery officials in South Carolina said more than 22,000 Pick 3 tickets won top prizes when two drawings resulted in triples in under 24 hours.

The South Carolina Education Lottery said Wednesday evening's Pick 3 drawing resulted in the numbers 1-1-1 being drawn, and the Thursday midday drawing saw the numbers 2-2-2 being selected.


The triple digit combinations, known as "triples" or "trips," are some of the most popular combinations selected by players, the lottery said.

Officials said the two drawings had a total of more than 22,000 top prize winning tickets -- about $5.5 million worth of wins.

A 50-cent Pick 3 ticket has a top prize of $250, while a $1 ticket can earn up to $500.
