How did he win 200k playing different combinations. If i hit it straight 42 times i would only win 210k.

I was puzzled by the $200k amount too, the numbers didn't seem to add up. So I searched and found a report showing the breakdown of his 42 wins, as I mentioned previously:

He won 32 prizes of $6,000, two prizes of $3,000 and eight prizes of $250.

That's a very particular/peculiar wager, so he most definitely had a plan and intentions for that $200,000 total prize amount.

      You're right. Just looked at Iowa and can't believe they pay 6k for straight.

        Yeah, a bunch of states have 60% payout for pick 3/4 instead of the standard 50% payout. More states should follow.

        I believe MA has the highest at 63% payout, but that's pari-mutuel so you can't do this trick of loading up on the duplicate wagers/numbers there.(or in the other pari-mutuel pick 3/4 states)

          Your assumptions are incorrect, not everyone wins big money.  Winning big money is the exception not the norm or it wouldn't be news. Unhappy

                In N. J. the most you can wager on pick 4 per ticket is $5.00. Sounds like Iowa may have a higher wager amount per selection. Still find this story incredible, but hey, He won the $200K. Good for him. Jester Laugh

                      That's a lucky person right here, i wonder if he had a system or just used his intuition ?

                          So do I.

                          But I usually yell NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! NO!
