On Wednesday the Virginia Lottery produced the lucky quad of winning numbers - 9-9-9-9 for its Pick 4 Day drawing, leaving a lot of players in a happy and joyful mood.

Speaking of the winning digits, number combinations with identical four digits are called "quads" and are quite a popular choice among many lottery players. This is probably why the prize payout for Virginia Pick 4 drawing was greater than usual.
According to experts at The Lottery Lab, a few number combinations hold special significance for some lottery players, such as anniversary dates, birthdays, addresses, etc. Out of these digits, quads or a specific set of numbers are the most favored form of numbers.
As per the Virginia Lottery rules, the odds of matching all four numbers in a Pick 4 drawing are 1 in 10,000. To have a detailed overview of the game odds, prizes, and the lottery payback rate, please visit the Prizes and Payouts page.
