Think what you will about the numbers 666, but the combination was lucky for more than 1,500 people in Connecticut on Monday night. 

With days to go until Halloween, the winning numbers for the October 28 Play3 Night drawing were 666 and 1,520 people have thicker wallets because of it.

The wager for a Play3 Night ticket ranges from 50 cents to $5, and the payouts are based on the amount wagered, so winners can expect to collect from $25 to $2,500 per wager in prize money.

In total, the Connecticut Lottery will pay out $598,225 in prize money.

“Since the Play3 Night game began, 6-6-6 has been drawn a total of 9 times in the nightly drawing with the last combination being picked on March 22, 1995,” Anne Noble, president and CEO of the Connecticut Lottery, said. “It’s always fun and exciting when a triple single digit is drawn because so many people are particularly fond of playing these numbers.”

Players with winning tickets have 180 days from the date of drawing to collect their winnings.
