New Mexico lottery players didn't hit the big one Wednesday night, but they did win more than $3.4 million.

Prizes have to be claimed at the lottery headquarters in Albuquerque.

New Mexico lottery officials told KOB Eyewitness News 4 that between Sunday and 8 p.m. Wednesday night, they sold more than $4.9 million worth of tickets. That means state players were buying at a rate of $7,400 a minute.
