Lottery Winner Buys 700 Tickets All With The Same Number And They All Hit!


Last Edited: November 13, 2011, 7:00 am

One of my favorite lottery stories - an oldie but goodieSun Smiley


How do you pick your lottery numbers?  We as players scratch through the frequency charts, devise systems, play important dates in our lives, and quite often let the quick pick function choose our numbers for us.  But do you ever buy tickets based on a dream?

William Harvey of Manalapan, New Jersey, hit the   New York Win 4 jackpot an amazing 70 times. He purchased 70 separate  Win 4 tickets, with 10 games on each ticket. Harvey’s  Win 4 prize totaled an incredible $3,500,000 for the November 22, 2009 midday drawing.

Who does that? 

Harvey is married and he is a self-employed construction worker. “I had a dream about my late mother; the next day I decided to play her birth date. I purchased $700 in  Win 4 tickets and played the number 2912. When I found out how much I won, I was speechless,” said Harvey. He plans to buy a new house and pay bills with his prize. 

Harvey purchased his winning Win 4 tickets at Billy Food Stores, 65 Page Avenue in Staten Island. The Win 4 midday numbers for November 22nd were:



2 9 1 2
Entry #113

Dreamimg about his late mother and playing her birthdate with multiple tickets payed off substantially for the man.. The next time I dream of my mother I need to buy more tickets!

Thanks for your comment, Elisabeth03. I've heard of people spending $200, $300 even $500 on one P3 number trying to make $thousands$ but this guy is what I call a true high baller to spend $700 on one number and actually becoming a millionaire three times over. By the way, that was the only time in NY lottery history 2912 came out straight!!

I wish I had the bravery to bet at least $10 on some keno numbers, but I am never sure which one's will show up when I want them, so I bet a little bit of money..

I believe he bought $700 worth of tickets. 700 X $5,000 = $3,500,000
