Wasn't this reporter curious at all about how somebody hits Play4 straight 100 times in one year?? I think that's the story, and not how much people are playing. We all know how much Floridians play. This year at least 2 records have been broken for the amount of scratch-offs sold.

Tell me something I don't know, like how to win 100 times!!

"...a chance to push everything aside, the circumstances that've controlled our lives, and do it our way now. Good, bad or otherwise. You'll maybe get lost in it, tied up in it a little bit, but if you work your way through that the real you shows up, I think. Maybe what's at your core deep down, maybe that comes out. Maybe that's what it's about." Mike Pace

    Well am alot more smarter than you think. l have a class A CDL and l drive a tractor trailer for an expedited company.And l do have a co driver and we both can drive from florida east coast to california west coast in less time than you think. We both can drive about 1500 miles in any 24hr period.So i get paid to travel and i do not pay for any gas not even one penny.Last two weeks i was in mineapolis MN for the first time and the first day the thursday 26th of april 2012 i played cash3 and lost $40 but the next day friday the 27th of april i played cash3 again and won $660 .l could not cash it because the retailer gave me the winning number 665 for $2 straight and box but i wanted $1 straight and box since everystate interpret state and box differently i won over $600 . i hate winning over $600 on one ticket .The retailer tried to cancel it as i requested but the machine in MN closed at 6.05pm unlike florida 7.45pm so i told her ok i will keep it. it won so now i had to wait till monday to go to lottery office downtown and then visit the Mall of America and have fun.But my company didn't keep me there till monday they sent me to fort wayne indiana .So for now am stuck with the winning ticket wraped in plastic bag in my wallet the only thing that can distroy it is water.l may mail it and claim it by mail but i have six months or more i think to claim it so now am just letting it relax in my wallet.So sorry i dont pay for gas or motel my company pay for all plus for everymile that i travel so my job is perfect for my lottery goals.As we speak now am watching a flat screen tv in my truck sleeper at a truckstop in ohio and chatting with you on my laptop connected to my iphone .So maybe we can have lunch someday i come to your state lol.

    inasmuch as you are a long distance truck driver (allegedlly) would alleviate and explain the travel and associated costs. however, i hope your company appreciates the time you spend buying and cashing all these "winning" tickets. i just think this is a "fish story" as the odds of hitting a paltry pik 3 are 1000-1 and no one could hit that many this often. disclose how much you invest in each draw to get these constant hits.

      well you have two parts to your question even though it sounds tough for you but it is so easy for me to answer most of them.the first part is this ,when you go to the state of florida and pick up a cash3 slip and play 665 straight and box and mark it $1 ,the cashier will bill you $1 and that means fifty cents goes to straight and fifty cents goes to box.when i got to minnesota i picked up a slip and marked it $1 straight and box.this cashier however billed me $2 meaning in minesota $1 goes to straight to win me $500 and $1 goes to box to win me $160. so total win was $660  but the total winning i wanted was $330 ( $250 for straight and $80 for box ).So every state intepret straight and box differently some state will break it into two and some state will double it by two so this created a problem for me.Now the second part about my company well am not always on the clock so the compoany really have no business what i do with my off duty time and the law requires me to drive 11hrs in any 24hrs so my co driver take over.Now have become very smart with my time and how i play.l have blank slips from everystate i visit in my traveling bag so what i do is i mark it b4 we get to the fuel stations my job is to pay for fuel my co driver is to pump.so now it takes us about 20 mins to buy about $800 worth of disel so as am paying for it i give the cashier my already filled slips to run when i come back in to get my second receipt i get my tickets and vanish. so have mastered how to be time efficient like a ninja.And also i do not wait to cash it like you think i proceed to my destination and i cash it on my way back .And am more smart than my company and i make more money from lottery than my company pays me so the lottery is now my first job thats right money talks lol. And to prove how smart have gotten when i won in missouri for $1200 the cashier told me i dont have enough money to pay you i said dont worry just use it to pay for my $800 in disel since my company already paid me i put my company cash in my pocket and paid for the diesel with my ticket so there are ways to work arround all obstacles and as to how i always win well its natural if you hunt for deers the first three kill is tough but after two years you will even be able to make sounds that will bring the deer to you so its life the more you play the more you win the more you develop new technics.The lottery departments are getting smarter and the players are adapting and getting smarter too so its the ultimate star wars of numbers and am having fun with it. l will love to tell you all my new ways but my time as you can see is moving at 75miles an hr for real.

        Well here you talk about your odds of winning being 1 in 1000 but you see thats is not the odds i play with we both play on different odd calculation system. you see in my world have develop my odds to be about 1 in 100 let me explain.ok lets say you want to play the number 123 and your odds of winning is 1 in 1000.this is how l play it. l replace the 1 with the letter x to create x23 so i bet 023 123 223 323 423 523 623 723 823 923 cost my $5 at fifty cents straight but my odds of winning with my x system changes my odd to i in 100.And l have lots of ways to manipulating numbers without fraud or breaking the law .Just because you cant figure it out doesnt mean its imposible to creat your way to win.

          as to how much i invest per game to get result is not relivant. this is why playing to me is a progressive game just like driving a truck you start at low gear and move to higher gear. when i was at clarksville tennessee l had only $50 in my wallect and by 6pm l spent $5 on 170 171 172 173 174 175 176 177 178 179 and the result at 7.30 pm in clarksville tn was 171 so i won $250 now that i have $250 0f play money i drove 15miles to kenturky and bet $50 on cash3 and i hit a combo or super straight for $600 each ticket cost me $6 the result in kenturky was like 576 at 11pm so i had time to pull it off so i won in two states for $850 and all i had 5hrs earlier was $50. so investment cost has got nothing to do with it start slowly untill you get free play money to advance to next level if you dont then just keep playing little money for now you can start as low as fifty cents .

              well taking care of my company sometimes is the easiest part of my strategy .if i absolutely have to like one time i needed to enter michigan to collect $1000 in two winning cash3 tickets i just turned off my company GPS system for half hr and told them i lost satelite signal lol and after i got done getting my money about 25miles off course i turned back the GPS system back on so i was invisible or a real ghost or ninja for half hr completely invisible.lol

                but joe, just by increasing your combinations does not change the odds of winning. it just means you bet 10 times as much as it would take to get you into a 100-1 situation. i really don't understand your manipulating of numbers and what fraud or law breaking situation that there is that you don't break. anyone can play any amount of numbers or combinations or amounts without breaking the law. i don't know what you mean by that. mathematically it doesn't matter if you spread out your 2 digit combination (23) for example, and add 10 different 1st digits, it is still 1000-1 to hit it. you just have 10 extra combinations which costs 10 times as much. they payout is only 500-1 making this a bad bet in those states with fixed payoffs. there are some states that pay more for their 3 digit, you should restrict your play to those states. you seem to have unbridled enthusiasm for this, but the 50% takeout you are facing has to doom you eventually.

                  Well you are focusing too much on numbers that have nothing to do with the fun and luck of the game. first of all you need to start thinking positively and that will help you win. two things happens when you play you either win or loss. so am not worried about being doom eventually because we live in a planet that is being doomed eventually and we live in a universe to the best of my knowlege will eventually run out of hydrogen and the stars will go dead so non of that bothers me .when i play the lottery i play to win and am 100 percent positive about that and the only doom that i see in my future is winning more money and up to ten million dollars .even though i know i may not make it but am having fun trying .just like having a girlfriend and going to bed may be the best fun for you but for me its the journey we take together.so the lottery for me is a fun journey and am happy with it for now.Now as for me playing ten extra you need to understand i didnt say ten extra quick picks or ten extra random numbers but this is ten extra strategic game plan that works for me but there is something else i didnt tell you about me that is dangerous or hard to understand is my instint for numbers and that is what creats the last two digit you trying to figure out. so i can't tell you how my instint works but i can give you a real life example.l was in the state of massachusetts and i wanted to play cash3 but the state of MA does not have cash3 but they have cash4 and they let you play the back3 of there cash4 like cash3 almost same price as anywhere else. so it was a monday morning and my instint said to me play 40 because 40 normally comes out on mondays so i went to the store and i played x040 x140 x240 x340 x440 x540 x640 x740 x840 x940 two hours later the result was 5440 so i won with x440 and since i bet $1 on it i won $655 because in MA price are paid based on ammount of winners so less people won so instead of me getting $500 l got $655 sucks because i had to go to lottery office and pay $32 in tax it was over $600. now my mention of fraud is because when people hear you won alot they think you doing something illegal so i was making it clear to you i don't need to do that to win thats all i was trying to say. And in florida one time l was buying some chicken strips from publix supermarket in the afternoon and the cashier said your price is $2.46 and a light bulb just went up in my head so i went to the lottery cashier and played 240 241 242 243 244 245 246 247 248 249 spent $5 and 4hrs later it was 244 so i won $250 plus my delicios chicken strips .So all the numbers in the world that you may have may not help you if you lack instint for numbers.And right now my instint tells me to look forward to my future hawaii vacation in waikiki so maybe i will send you some vacation pictures that is the only doom i can see.

                    goodness gracious joe. i am just relaying info on payouts. you have it wrong in massacusetts where i reside. they draw a 4 digit number twice daily now. you can either play all 4 or 1st 3 or last 3 or middle 2 (which would suit you i guess). everyone here at least knows you must buy the 3 digit play in .50 increments to avoid the taxes.(you didn't) the payoffs here average 700.00 for 3 opposed to your paltry 500.00 in some of the states in which you ply through. being that as it may, i understand you can't play here exclusively but watch your tax ticket play. so easy to avoid. as far as the planet being doomed before you go clean, i tend to think that is farfetched. those stars aren't in our universe incidentally, so if a couple flame out it is some other solar systems problem. your chances of running into a tornado are even better than you hitting a 3 digit. there really isn't much strategy in what you are doing (mainly wheeling a 2 digit number). next time in ma play a 10.00 2 digit and your tax worry will be alleviated.

And now that i know which state you live in feel free to email me here and i could send you some lucky numbers for MA when i have it or feeling it . l think my expertise with number can help you win alot of money and maybe you join me in waikiki hawaii we can all be a big lotto club lol.Do you surf l love the little waves. lol

                        not ragging on you joe, just trying to help. impressed with your unbridled enthusiasm for the daily numbers game. although we have the highest payouts in the country here we're still bucking tremendous odds to hit those tough 3 digit paydays. i haven't nailed one in months, although almost weekly getting 2 out of 3. maybe i should try your wheel system. as far as hawaii goes i would have to sail through the panama canal as airport security and i do not see eye to eye. meanwhile i will stick with my first 3 exact and first 3 any and last 3 exact and last 3 any (on separate tickets to avoid taxes) sticking with the higher numbers and zero's to maximize the payoffs.

                          Some may say "The more often you play, the luckier you become."

                          But I still believe the odds of winning the lottery make it a game of DESTINY. FATE.

                          I reckon if we are to win the lottery, it was decided long before we were even born.
