Betting On 800

In the wake of last week’s TWA crash, thousands of people in New York and Connecticut have made 800 their lucky number.

And in Connecticut, it made them winners. More than 6,000 people played 8-0-0 Saturday, and when the numbers won, the lottery paid out slightly more than $1 million - for a loss of about $680,000.

In New York, Daily Number betting was stopped on 800 Thursday and Friday because it reached the state’s liability level - $5 million. The number did not win.
