(KGTV) - Did a record number of people with the North Carolina lottery last weekend by picking all zeroes?

Yes!

2,014 people chose 0-0-0-0 for their numbers in the June 22nd Pick 4 lottery ... and those numbers hit.

About half bought a $1 ticket and get $5,000 apiece.

The other half bought 50-cent tickets and will each get $2,500.

Their combined prize of $7.8 million sets a new record for this game.
