    While this is great that everyone was able to get paid on this pick 4, this goes to show how many people play what they think are magical combinations, like 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, or 1, 11, 21, 31, 41, 51, or as in this game, 4, 4, 4, 4. There's probably many thousands more playing  the other numbers in the same manner.

    Gail Howard warns against playing such combinations in the big JP games because you could have 2500 people all thinking they've won millions and millions of dollars, and ending up splitting it for perhaps a a few thousand dollars each.

      I agree with you.

       

      I think the main reason people play the "easy" picks is because either they are lazy, or just because they are easy to remember.

       

      There are tons of people who pick 1-2-3-4-5 in a pick 5 game, just because its easy to remember. First of all, the chances of one of those combos hitting is astrinomical. Second, like you mentioned, soooooo many people play those "easy" sets of numbers making teh jackpot split multiple ways.

        I'm not sure who Gail Howard is, but this is very true as long as its a pari-mutuel game. Not true for Pick 4 or Pick 3 games.

          I'm stunned that Maryland had their pick 4 game is 4-4-4-4. I had put on all states predictions Todd.

            When more than 100 players matched 5+0 in PowerBall a couple of years ago playing the same numbers from a fortune cookie, I don't remember any of them complaining about having played the same numbers others played.  As I see it, it's better to share a jackpot than to share nothing which many lottery players do every drawing regardless of the numbers they play.

              Just curious.....Don't they cap sales at $7 Million for each #?

              For example once they have sold $7 Million worth of prize payouts on 4444, then the sales for that # would stop and playing would not be able to buy anymore 4444 picks???

               

              In FL I believe they cap sales at $5 Million liability on #'s

              correct 7 mil is the cap.

              but you could still buy other numbers until they reached a cap amount.

              What they don't tell people is on any given day mostly weekends all the triples and quads are sold out as well as certain other numbers like 1212    2011 etc.

              Big John says. You don't hit the number. The number hits you!!!!

                             I'm not Big John, I'm Four4me, Big John's a friend.

                Wouldn't the odds of 1-2-3-4-5 the same as 2-14-23-27-33, though? I mean each number has the same chance of hitting as the next.

                    Wow, just in time for tax season, too.  For some people, they will be getting money back; for others, they will have to pay.  Let us hope their taxes even out; receiving more money in addition to the money they won.  Oh, well, some people have all the luck!

                    See Ya!-- Bye, bye!  When you win, may you glow as brightly as theSun Smiley

                      Yes very true, however the odds of all 5 in a row arent appealing to me.

                       

                      I dont believe any pick 5 game in history has ever hit 5 in a row. Although the odds are the same, I wouldnt pick them for the sole reason many many other people do.

                       

                      Just my opinion.

                          Those cashing up tp $5000.00, can cash at super agents which are found in many communities. Anything larger than $5000.00 must go to one of the two main offices.  The office in Baltimore is such a small office. I hope all of the winners don't try to crowed in there all at once.

                              Just my opinion.

                              Pennsylvania's Treasure Hunt had 1-2-3-4-5 as a draw last year.  I was looking through their history and saw it.  Although 1) This isn't a ball draw game - so make what you want of that 2) the game has a field of 30 numbers to pick from, so the odds aren't as astronical.  3) 49 people split the Jackpot, for like 1200 or 2500 dollars each or something.

                               

                              BTW: As far as I know, you don't pay taxes on a lottery win that is less than $5000, if your state doesn't tax it.
