What happens when the winning lottery numbers are ... nothing?

Thousands of people in North Carolina know the feeling, since the winning numbers in the state's Pick 4 drawing on Saturday came up 0-0-0-0.

Lottery officials say 2,014 tickets matched all four numbers, which led to a record-breaking payout in North Carolina: $7.8 million in prizes, according to WSPA.

That breaks the state's previous record of $7.5 million, set in 2012. Those winning numbers were 1-1-1-1.
