Lottery Gods Ready to Turn the Page

January 02, 2002|From Times Wire Reports

It may have been a numerological sign or just a strange coincidence, but it was no mistake.

The winning numbers for the Massachusetts State Lottery's Daily Numbers game for New Year's Eve were the digits of the new year: 2-0-0-2.

The numbers are drawn at WBZ-TV in Boston. Executive News Producer Jen Street said the drawing is conducted and supervised by lottery officials, and the station provides only studio space.

The numbers may have been coincidental, but they weren't profitable. The payout, usually thousands of dollars, was just $280.
