Wish I was among that Crowd. lol

Party2-2-2-2

 

I agree @ Jordan, I was recently looking at the vtracs, trying to figure it out.

2222 was right there, because, in October, Illinois ran 7277, 2772, that's the vtrac for 2222, and 3333.

 

Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Struggle is real!

    People routinely do that here in Michigan. I'm sure its routine in most other states too.

    My mom put down $10 on 0-4-7-1 back in 1991 - she collected $50,204 thanks to it coming in that night.

    I remember not too long ago somebody putting down $100 on a Pick 4 combo and collecting over $500,000 because "they had a hunch". I'll have to find it and post it.

    Nope here in TX the maximum you can put down on pick 3 and pick 4 is $5.

    $50K, wow that was a sweet payout.

    Congratulations to her and to you too, for knowing someone who actually won big on the lottery....

      Hello!

      On 1 playslip, yes, but you can have that playslip played as many times as you want to, just tell the clerk to run it thru the machine as many times as you want to.

        I wonder how much the online places lost at $9,000 per $1 bet at most places...

          The max you can play on one playboard is $5. Each playslip has 5 playboards which you can bet .50, $1, or $5. But you can play as much as you want. I played $10 straight per draw a couple weeks ago. When I have a hunch on a number I play it heavy.

            Tx has had Daily 4 for 3 years now, and no quads yet. I don't know that I could ever play quads because they are so rare.

This was back before North Carolina or Tennessee had a state lottery - and just before South Carolina launched their Pick-3 game.

              Today's winning 3-ball is going to be a number between 000 and 999.

              In a lot of states, lotteries benefit education. That makes the REAL winners the only people who can't play!

                  looking at that picture, i can see why quads don't fall much, what a headache for the state lottery offiices, i would try to hold off a week to claim my money if i could stand it, just to avoid the crowds.  i hope this boosts their economy for christmas, and i hope tennessee follows their lead.  i am happy for each and every one of them.  and alittle jealous too.

                  Gotta wonder how many people hang in there playing quads in TN, kid.

                  We've only ever had one, on  9/13/08  Evening - 1111.

                  Those lines in IL probably scared them so much they flipped the switch again on the computer to rule out quads this time.

                            Massachusetts has a crazy pick 4 they call Daily Game.

                            On some days the pay out is as low as $3,800 if you match the 4 numbers straight.

                            Yeah, we usually don't play that game.

                            That money's gone fo ever

                              I've played numbers that I've seen clearly in dreams and woke up and wrote em down.

                              Turned out to be nightmares.

                              Wait a minute, do you need to have your glasses on in your dreams?

                              Maybe that was the problem.
