Question of the Day
Unfortunately for those players, the numbers drawn came nowhere near matching the sold-out combinations.
The Virginia Lottery limits specific number combinations to 16,000 in Pick 3 and 12,000 in Pick 4 to limit the potential payout to $8 million and $6 million, respectively.
For Pick 3, the top prize is $500 and the odds of winning are one in 1,000. Pick 4 players have to beat 1-in-10,000 odds to win the top prize of $5,000.
The lure of “lucky sevens” did not translate into a huge boost in sales for Saturday’s drawing. Pick 3 sales were up 4 percent and Pick 4 sales were up 8 percent from the previous Saturday, the spokesman said.
Boy, 8, dies after ATV crash
An 8-year-old boy died Sunday when the all-terrain vehicle on which he was riding with an adult family member crashed into a tree, the Frederick County Sheriff's Office said yesterday.
Cpl. Bailey said the boy was wearing a helmet while riding on the vehicle with an adult family member in a field near New Windsor owned by a family friend. The adult family member was not hurt, police said.
Talks begin on renewable energy
A state task force charged with finding ways to boost production of renewable fuels met for the first time yesterday in Annapolis.
State officials are meeting with farmers and energy-industry specialists throughout the summer and fall to gather suggestions for how the state can increase its share of the alternative-fuels market. But the first meeting showed that there are many obstacles. Farmers aren’t always able to sell byproducts that could be processed into fuel. And customers don’t always have a way to buy the fuel.
