2,100 lottery winners from the United States have won $3.5 billion in prizes in the latest state lottery.
The total number of winners, who were eligible to win, is 4,100.
In the second week of December, winners won an estimated $1.8 billion in state lottery prizes, according to the National Association of Lottery Administrators.
That’s up by over half a billion dollars from the previous week.
The total total value of all the winners in the state’s two state lottery contests in December was $2.7 billion.
The state’s largest winner, Robert J. B. King, of Dayton, Ohio, won $2 billion.
A total of $1 billion in total prize money has been won in Indiana since 2000, when the state was one of the first states to launch its lottery.
The prize pool at the time was $4.2 billion, according the Associated Press.
In the early 2000s, Indiana was the last state to launch a state lottery, and the state won $5.5 million in prize money.
Indiana was the only state to have its first state lottery for a national audience in 2002, with $4 million in prizes.
In 2007, Indiana became the first state to offer a state-level lottery to a national broadcast audience, and it became the second state to host its own lottery in 2010, when $3 million in lottery prize money was given out.
The state’s lottery winners are also the first in the country to win a state’s first lottery jackpot.
In 2020, a winner of a $5 million jackpot in the first year of a new lottery jackpile in California received $2 million in Indiana.
