Arizona man's lottery ticket wins on every line

Arizona LotteryArizona Lottery: Arizona man's lottery ticket wins on every line

Everyone dreams of purchasing a lottery ticket that has the winning numbers, but what about a $5 ticket that has winning numbers on each and every line — including one with the winning jackpot numbers?

About three months ago, Louis Cooper, Tucson, began playing the Arizona Lottery again, after a brief hiatus, using some special numbers he liked and some suggested by a friend, who just happens to be a psychic. This friend also gave him a lucky stone that he wears around his neck.

Louis' five-line The Pick ticket had one line worth $40, two lines worth $1,000 each, one line worth $10,000 and one line was the jackpot worth $1 million — all this on one ticket. To the best of the Arizona Lottery's knowledge, this ticket is truly one-of-a kind.

When Louis first took his ticket is to be scanned at the store, he and the clerk thought he had only won $10,000. It wasn't until he arrived at the Lottery office in Tucson that he discovered that he had indeed won $10,000, plus a few other lines and, of course, the jackpot.

Having been a farmer most of his life, Louis knows the value of money and the importance of saving for a rainy day. His daughter said that "when me and my siblings were growing up, our parents would often do without so their children would have what they needed."

After taking some time to think it over, Louis decided to take the cash option as opposed to the annuity and ended up with a check for $621,796 after taxes. He plans to invest his money after consulting with his financial advisor and may consider getting a "newer" car.

In fact, according to his daughter, after he had collected his winnings from the Lottery he decided to treat himself to a new hat. However, it didn't have to be fancy — a hat from the local hardware store would do just fine.

    Now THAT'S what I'm talking about!!!

    But here's OUR question?!?!?! How is it okay that he hit 5 on one ticket, but we can't hit ONE on 25 tickets?!?!? If someone can answer me that, I will be a happy girl.

    Oh and what's the name of his psychic? I'd like to set up an appointment!

        Well of course... but I think that could get uncomfortable at some point, but hey, for a MM or PB jackpot that might be worth it!

            The 621k or whatever figure mentioned sounds like the cash value BEFORE withholding.

            AZ Fantasy 5 has a payback of only 45%. I don't know the payout % on The Pick.

              Sure, that wonderful. But let's not forget that the Arizona Lottery (and the LA and IA ones too) are run by BIGOTS!

                Congrats and what luck! Personally I use the Aventurine (green) stone for good luck. Since luck can be interpreted in different ways, I choose to beleive I've been given more luck by wearing it.

                Glad to read that the gent knows the value of money! The sheer fact that he simply wanted a new hat (and not an expensive one) shows sensibility. May he be showered with many more years of good health and close family memories!

                  Lottery Post has wide assortment of wheels in resources from pick 5 to pick 6 wheels. I have used the pick 5 filtered wheel myself. You could have multiple wins on more than one line if a lot of the numbers drawn are in the numbers selected for the wheel.

                  This is just a sample of the many different wheels.

                    It's not unusual for a player to wheel 7 or 8 numbers in 5 lines, it's just unusual to have all the winning numbers in a wheel that small.  That could happen to anybody playing a 5 lines wheel with 7 or 8 numbers if they're lucky.

                     * you don't need to buy more tickets, just buy a winning ticket *

                      When I use my pick 5 filtered wheel I keep my nice shiny lucky rock I got next to me for luck.
