ATLANTA – Georgia Lottery players are enjoying superhero-sized winnings with the "fantastic fours." Lucky Cash 3 players won $8,936,750 when 4-4-4 was drawn in Wednesday's (April 26) evening Cash 3 drawing. More than 22,900 players selected the winning combination.
"Cash 3 remains a big hit with Georgia Lottery players, who are always excited when triples are drawn," said Georgia Lottery Corporation President and CEO Margaret DeFrancisco. "While Cash 3 is fun for players, its proceeds contribute greatly to the HOPE Scholarship and Prekindergarten Programs that we fund."
The top prize for a Cash 3 $1 play is $500. The top prize for a 50 cents play is $250.
Cash 3 midday drawings are held every afternoon except Sundays at approximately 12:29 p.m. (EST). Cash 3 evening drawings are held every night at approximately 6:59 p.m. (EST).
Since its first year, the Georgia Lottery Corporation has returned over $8.2 billion to the state of Georgia for education. All Georgia Lottery profits go to pay for specific educational programs including Georgia's HOPE Scholarship Program and Georgia's Prekindergarten Program. More than 900,000 students have received HOPE Scholarships, and more than 700,000 4-year-olds have attended the statewide, voluntary prekindergarten program.
