Lottery players snatch up 1-2-1-2 Pick Four tickets

LOUISVILLE, KY (FOX19) - Kentucky Lottery players have snatched up all available Pick Four tickets with the 1-2-1-2 combination, in honor of Dec. 12, 2012.

All available 1-2-1-2 Pick 4 tickets for Wednesday's midday and evening drawing have been sold out. Tickets are still available for the 1-2-1 and 1-2-2 Pick 3 midday and evening drawings.

"We expect these remaining Pick 3 combinations will sell out today, especially when players see the 1-2-1-2 Pick 4 combinations have already been snapped up," said the KLC's Vice President of Communications Chip Polston. "Players looking for these specific numbers should check in at their local lottery retailer quickly since they probably won't last long."

A maximum of 2,500 $1 straight match tickets for a particular set of Pick 3 numbers are all that can be bought for the game's midday or evening drawing, as the potential prize liability for any combination cannot exceed $1.5 million. Pick 4 players have 300 $1 straight match midday and 300 $1 straight match evening tickets available for any numeric combination as this game has the same $1.5 million liability limit.

In examining records going back to June 1998, no instances of 1-2-1-2 being drawn were found. 1-2-1 was the winning Pick 3 number on August 7 2010, and 1-2-2 was last drawn on August 24 2006.
