RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - More than 2,000 people won a North Carolina lottery game last weekend with the number 2-2-2-2.
They were the winning numbers in Saturday's Carolina Pick 4 game.
The lottery will be paying $7.4 million to the winners. The game's record payout came in August at $7.5 million for 1-1-1-1.
Lottery spokesman Ryan Kennemur says the average payout for the game has been just under $67,000.
Those with the winning tickets Saturday night won either $5,000 or $2,500, depending on whether they paid $1 or 50 cents for their tickets.
The odds of picking the correct Pick 4 numbers are 1 in 10,000.
Winners have 180 days to claim their prizes.
