The Aug. 14 evening Daily 3 winning numbers were 1 1 1. The 584 players around the state who played 1 1 1 won a combined $141,725.
Thirty-six hours later, on Aug. 16, the midday Daily 3 winning numbers were 3 3 3 . Around the state, 762 players won $188,925 in that drawing after plunking down their money on 3 3 3.
