The NC Lottery Office in Greenville was packed Monday with people collecting the money they won by picking 1-1-1-1 in Saturday's Carolina Pick 4.
Nearly 2,000 people hit it big when they chose those numbers Saturday. An employee at the office says well over 100 people from the east stopped in to collect. The office was near capacity inside with several people waiting outside to claim their prize.
A record $7.5 million dollars was paid out to the nearly 2,000 winners.
The Saturday afternoon Carolina Pick 3 was 7-7-7. Prize money paid out there was $1.6-million.
