ALBANY, N.Y. — On the first anniversary of the terrorist attacks, a date known as 9/11, the evening numbers drawn in the New York Lottery were 9-1-1.

"The numbers were picked in the standard random fashion using all the same protocols," said New York Lottery spokeswoman Carolyn Hapeman.

"It's just the way the numbers came up," she said.

Lottery officials will not know until this morning how many people played those numbers or the total payout, she said.

For the evening numbers game, the New York Lottery selects from balls numbered zero to nine circulating in a machine at the lottery office. Three levers are pressed, and three balls are randomly brought up into tubes and then displayed.
