Pick-3 Lottery Beats Odds, select same numbers two nights in a row

Updated:
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ The odds of the same Oklahoma Pick-3 lottery numbers coming up two nights in a row are a million to one, but that's just what happened last weekend.

The numbers 1-7-5 were selected at random both Saturday and Sunday night.

``We checked and double-checked all the procedures, and everything was done correctly. It was just one of those coincidences,'' Jim Scroggins, director of the Oklahoma Lottery Commission, said.

University of Central Oklahoma mathematician Larry Lucas says that on any given day, the odds of choosing the correct three numbers in the order drawn is one in 1,000. Those who select the numbers in order get a cash prize of $500.
