What the most money you've ever put or seen someone play on a single pick three combination?  I've seen a guy where I buy my tickets play 000 for $100.00 straight.  I think ten straight and ten box is the most I ever played on a single combination.

    Me:  $20 on one number.  No, I didn't win, but came close.  It has got to be a VERY good number for me to spend that much on ONE number.  I have only done that once.

    Someone else: $40 to $60.  This guy would buy $40 to $60 on one number, but he would buy several numbers at once spending $40 to $60 on EACH number.

    I was at QT (QuikTrip Convenience Store) one time and they were printing out 99 QP's for a guy for the Pick 3.  Later I talked to the guy that printed them out and he said it was another QT employee that buys them and he sometimes spends like $250 a night on tickets.  Some straights, some boxed.  That is way too much money to spend for me.  I don't know how much he wins or how often.

    We shall see!

      Twenty bucks on a single set..............always strt/box. I have seen a friend of mine put a hundred bucks on a set of trips to come in, never won but what a nice payout that would be. I have also seen him drop a grand a day at the horse track, here is the killer. He is still ahead at the horses. Just won over 7,000 bucks last week, profit.

        More than once, a  guy I know liked to buy $1 exacts ten times on the same number and he would sometimes win $5,000. 

        Another restaurant owner I know about follows hunches and doesn't try to do any math or analysis.  His girlfriend told him 9-2-2 was coming. He thought about it and said, "No, 9-2-3."  He had put $100 in various amounts exact and any and won $40,000.

        I put $20 exact on 5-2-8 five years ago and lost miserably. Never did that again, even with a good number.

        The same guy mentioned earlier put $50 on 9-2-4 exact(would have won $25,000) and 8-2-4 came in. One number off and $50 poorer.

        These people who you hear about winning big sometimes, lose BIG most of the time.  That guy who occasionally got $5000 or $1250 would lose $2400 in 5 weeks without a single win of any kind. Pretty bad!

              Cash 3 & 4, at the most $10 for a single number. Have played ALL 52 Mega balls on the Megamillion, got back a simple $7 (had played the same number set for all 52 tickets), was first and last time I had done that (had won extra $$$ on scratch tickets, so figured what the heck, was only out of pocket for $10 total).

                I once hit 5 in Lotto and put $50.00 on Cash 3 and didn't win even 3 right. They were my picks, not QPs. I have seen people put hundreds of dollars on Cash 3 and other games in convenience stores. What is making me kick myself right now is: I had heard how great the new $20.00 scratch offs were, so when I got my IRS refund yesterday I played 4 of them and won nothing, so quit. Then this woman came up and bought the next one and one $500.00. I am still in pain.

                  I was behind a guy who played a four digit $50 straight and $35 box. I don't know why he played that combination of money on it, but I followed him and played $1.00 on it. It didn't come out.

                    I feel your pain.  The place I buy my tickets all the time a guy bought a $5 Scratch off before me and he won $30,000.  Of course, I won nothing!

                      My previous supervisor delayed me one nite and when I got to the store, a guy had just purchased a $5 scratch-off 20 minutes earlier and won $50,000. Would have been my ticket if I had not been delayed. I ain't forgave my previous supervisor yet for that one.

                        I have a pick 4 number i put 20 on straight a few times a year when i feel it's gonna come out. And only after i have won  one of the pick 3/4 games for the seed money. I have played 5 dollars straight on a pick 3 numbers many times and box it for a buck.

                        I have a friend that plays pick 3 and he puts 50 on it straight to win one number evening draw only. He does this  twice a week. He has won many times doing this and feels comfortable playing that way because he is working with the money he has won from previous wins.

                        Last year when i hit pick 4 straight for 7600 i went crazy for about a week and spent about 5/6 hundred trying to hit pick 3/4/5 buying tickets like they were going out of style. I did hit the pick 3 straight that week but endend up throwing it away playing keno with those winnings. After my thrill week was over i went back to my standard playing profile.

                            SClotto, too bad that guy in SC didnt play 312 up here in Va for 100 bucks. It hit here as 312 mid-day today.

                            Good Luck

                              I know two men in ky, one in Irvine the other in Junction City, which have scored large hits on pick 3,  just the other day 333 came in the man in JC. had 200.00 dollars on it, personally I can only imagine that, I've not ever been that brave... The man from irvine has hit, that I know of 3-4 times last year for 60,000  he plays mostly double numbers or a triple,,, He had 202 for 150.00 a few months ago, he told me it was coming but I did not have it, but i sure remembered when it came in,,,,,  Some people are lucky and good,, I wish it could be me some day,,,, Remember never bet more than you can afford to lose......
