Triple zero leads to big bucks in Cash 3

Has happened 9 times since 1994

Headline Goes Here

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - If you like the number 0, then you probably took down Tuesday's Cash 3 drawing.

The winning numbers for the midday drawing were 0-0-0.

That may seem unusual and it is. That number combination has only happened nine time since the Cash 3 started nearly 20 years ago.

But the last time it happened was actually last month.

1,884 people played the triple zero and got paid $500 each if they played a $1 straight ticket.

Even though we wouldn't throw back 500 bucks, just know that there are 1,000 combinations so your true odds should be 1,000-to-1, not 500-to-1.
