Thank you for your message regarding the Daily 4 $50,000 winner.
The Indianapolis woman you are referring to played it straight on her
$10 Daily 4 ticket. In the March 8 midday drawing, she multiplied her
winnings by 10 and claimed a $50,000 prize. She essentially won 10
times. When playing Daily 4, you can place up to a $10 wager to increase
your payout if you win. I have provided you with a brief example below:
A $1 wager on straight will pay $5,000 if you winA $2 wager on straight
will pay $10,000 if you win ($5,000 x 2 = $10,000)A $3 wager on straight
will pay $15,000 if you win ($5,000 x 3 - $15,000) The payout will
continue to increase based on the amount of the wager. The maximum
wager allowed is $10 which if won will pay $50,000.
Regarding computerized draws, the Hoosier Lottery started using
electronic random number generators for its draw games on Dec. 3, 2001.
Before switching to the computerized procedure, the Hoosier Lottery
carefully weighed the advantages and disadvantages. I can assure you
that security and fairness were not diminishing factors in our decision
to implement an electronic drawing procedure. In fact, the Hoosier
Lottery concluded that the electronic draws were more secure than using
ball machines. The electronic process decreased the number of steps
involved, leaving less room for error. We weren't alone in our
conclusion. At that time, 13 other lotteries were using computerized
drawings. Since our initiation of electronic draws, lotteries in
Michigan, Minnesota, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin have made the switch as
well. Any member of the public is allowed to visit Lottery headquarters
and watch a computerized draw, such as Daily 4. During these draws, both
internal and external auditors are on hand to ensure the drawing is fair
and secure. If you have an interest in watching a draw, call
1-800-955-6886. We appreciate your continued patronage and support. I
hope that this reply has thoroughly answered your concerns. Sincerely,
Before I e-mailed them on this story I did check all prize payouts for the previous, month, march 8th had no strait winners, after I e-mailed them, they removed the story from the website, and has yet put it back on,and now the prize payout shows 10 strait winners. But no box wins
the number played was 7460
it was supposedly played 10.00 strait with no box play
My self if I played a number for that kind of money I think I would at least back it up a couple times boxed just as a insurance policy.
Well any way at least I have them responding to me, I plan on continuing to fight them,
keep you all updated. Mark
P.S. I think I will visit them and watch one of there drawings.
