LOTTERY NUMBERS CAN SELL OUT?:

Horses 9, 1 and 1 win on anniversary (Associated Press, 9/12/11)

On the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks on Sunday, horses wearing the numbers 9, 1 and 1 won the first three races at Belmont. [...]

Lottery players weren't so lucky, but the 9-1-1 combination proved more irresistible than ever. Carolyn Hapeman, a spokeswoman for the New York State Lottery, said that combination for both the midday and evening "Numbers" draw was sold out by 8:30 a.m. on Sept. 5 for every twice-daily drawing right through Sept. 12.

The 9-1-1 pick has been a popular option for lottery players, just like 1-1-1 or 7-7-7, and sells out every day, she said. She didn't recall a time when it sold out for seven straight days ahead of time.
