"they held two of only four winning tickets sold in Wisconsin for Saturday's SuperCash drawing, turn out to have the other two as well."

"each of those tickets paid out $350,000. Then they brought in the other two winners, which now raise the total they have won to $1.4 million."

"they had been playing the same numbers for several years."

"After taxes, the Adamsons will pocket $995,000."

    He said his wife, who is his boss at work, had asked if she could play the same numbers he played

     

    I bet this was done on company time...and it makes no sense at all, if he played them why would she want to?

    Perhaps because she had a strong feeling for the numbers he picked.  Jackpot games are more than "statistics".  We had a guy here in the last year win Supercash with one ticket and numbers he picked. He felt so strongly about the numbers that he bought the ticket three times during the day (I think it was three times) in different retailers outlets.  So because the jp wasn't paramutuel, he won on every ticket. Something close to a million bucks.

    You can do it with one ticket and one set of numbers just as easily as using the "shotgun" approach. That's been proven time and again.

    After all, there is only one set of 6 numbers drawn, no matter how many tickets you hold.

      According to a google search she is a CPA.

      He works for her i doubt either will quit working.

      They just announced on the radio news here that the couple actually had purchsed four winning tickets (2 tickets each) so they grossed $1.4 million witht he four tickets, and will get about $955,000 after taxes.

      The man is also talking to an attorney to get a patent on the formula he uses for determining the numbers. The wife was interviewed and she said that even with his formula, he knew he'd have to play the game for years before he'd even come close to winning. It simply doesn't work every time.

      I imagine our Lottery Commission is having a fit right now. LOL !

        Their total take is 700K.. even so I wasn't serious that they should quit on that amount, I wouldn't either, but you can just imagine them late one night in bed.. "Honey?"  "Yes Dear?"  "I'm thinking of resigning."  "You better not! I'll bop you with a rolling pin."  "OK Dear, see you at the Office tomorrow."  "Yes, get some sleep, I'm giving you a performance review tomorrow morning!"  "About my work?"  "No, the other thing!"

        LOL

          I just heard the same report on FOX news that they had all 4 tickets. The trick is, they still only won ONE time for the jackpot. Put it this way, what percentage of regular players use systems, say 10 percent which is just a guess. But that means for every 10 winners one of them was using a system. It does not say if that system HELPED them win. The only way to prove any system is with an honest backtest. And also, once they make this system public (is that what happens now with the patent?) the Wis. Lottery may determine what biased the numbers and want to change it very soon, maybe go computerized or something or switch ballsets differently. They should have not MENTIONED their system and just kept playing to win again, but of course they want to make additional $.

          Maybe they put out a misleading set of numbers to confuse would-be system authors?

            The article I saw said it was Wisconsin SuperCash, and the numbers were: 1, 5, 8, 13, 24 and 26 from the August 16 drawing.

                They won the jackpot four times.  THis particular game is not parimutuel.  You can have up to seven winning tickets in one drawing, and each will win $350,000.  Once it goes beyond seven winners, the jackpot starts getting parimutuel and is divided among the number of winners. (I forget the formula) So if you play, and no one else wins on that day, but you do, you can actually buy 7 tickets and potentially win over 2 million dollars.

                I guess because the odds of winning the jackpot are over 1.6 million to one, they felt they would never get "burned".
