St. Louis man wins $24,000 playing Pick 4

Missouri LotteryMissouri Lottery: St. Louis man wins $24,000 playing Pick 4

ST. LOUIS, Mo. — If you have a set of numbers you believe in, why not purchase more than one ticket?  In Numbers Games like Pick 3 and Pick 4, which have fixed prizes for matching all of the winning numbers, you will win the designated prize for each ticket you hold.

That's exactly what Anthony Nguyen of St. Louis, Missouri, did. 

Nguyen purchased four Straight Pick 4 tickets with the combination 5-6-1-4 for the March 16 Midday drawing.  That was the winning combination for that drawing and Nguyen won $6,000 for each of his four Pick 4 tickets, bringing his total prize to $24,000.

Nguyen bought his winning tickets at 7-Eleven, 8290 St. Charles Rock Road, in Charlack.  He presented the tickets for claim at the St. Louis regional Lottery office on March 17.  Nguyen said that the money would be used to pay bills.

          I have a set of 5 numbers 1,11,16,18,29 that I play on the Mass Cash game

          (it's a pick 5 game) which I believe in but so far it's been nothing but misses.

          Sometimes I play the same set of numbers 5 times!!! Tonite I'll try againBig Smile

              Very nice hit!

              We had someone up the road hit Straight P4 X $100 = $500K

              Taxes hurt on that  one,  still great.

               

              $6,000.00/ $1 Missouri opposed to $5,000/ $1 Maryland is it worth moving there? Maybe?  I say no.  I've got two I've been waiting for in MD. long time............ that IF either hits will exceed $24K............by a lot.

              Crazy

                Last November, a guy in NY had a dream about his deceased mother, and the next day bought $700 worth of Cash4 tix using her birthday. It came in. He's 3.5 million richer.

Maybe what's at your core deep down, maybe that comes out. Maybe that's what it's about." Mike Pace

                  I need to do something like that...I don't take my dreams serious...I might be missing out.


                  This is a great win though. Smiley

                    Thats the way to play. If u really believe in yur pick4, stick with

                    one number and put some money on it. The rewards are awesome

                    Congrats to the winner!
