Cash 4 players score more than half-million dollars in payouts

Check your numbers: several unclaimed prizes for Powerball/Mega Millions 

More than 200 Cash 4 players won upwards of half-a-million dollars in combined winnings from the Sunday, Sept. 4., evening drawing with the winning combination of 3-3-3-3 and the Wednesday, Sept. 7, midday drawing with the winning combination of 1-1-2-2.

“Quads” (four like numbers drawn) and “trips” (three like numbers drawn) are popular number choices for Cash 4 and Cash 3 players. When those numbers are randomly drawn, the payouts are big.
