Cleveland (Ap) -- The Ohio Lottery says too many people thought the calendar would make nine a lucky number.
Spokeswoman Jeannie Roberts says the lottery reached its limit and had to stop selling pick 4 tickets Wednesday for the combination 9-9-0-9, which was the day's date, Sept. 9, 2009.
She says 9-9-9 was a very popular pick 3 choice.
The winning numbers from the daytime drawing were 2-1-8 for the pick 3 and 4-6-7-6 for pick 4.
The night drawing came up with a pick 3 number of 9-7-9 and a pick 4 of 8-0-0-8.
