A friend of mine's grandfather just won a big chunk putting $25 on a pick 4 number that came up straight in ny.

 

Lucky dog, lol.  He hasn't claimed it yet.....but, my question is.....what is the max you can put on a number?

 

I've always wanted to walk to the store, and drop $100 on a number I was sure would hit, but, what if they rejected the bet size?

 

I want to know, so I can either dream, or stop dreaming...what is the max you can put on a number?

 

If anyone knows......

    I think each state sets their own rules for how much you can bet on one playslip.  In Oregon you can bet or wager $.50 or $1 on 7 different bets in Pick4 up to 12 drawings or 3 days worth of Pick4 draws.  So the most is $84 for all the bets for the 3 days of Drawings off of one set of numbers whether you pick them or you do a Quick Pick.-weshar75

      Ah, I'm sure each state has its own rules but what would stop you from making the same $1 bet as many times as you wanted to?

      Some people play PIck 3 that way so even if they collected $500 multiple times there'd be no tax. :)

        Hmm. Im not sure what the max is in Ohio, but I put 25 on one number once.  My opinion; you can put as much as you want on one number or, until the lottery locks that number out. There is more than one place you can go to buy your tickets. So if you want to spend $100 on one number; play $20 worth at 5 different stores, gas stations, etc.

            that would be whatever he would take. i'd be wary of this cause ifin he ain't got the dough neither will you. most street guys only take a loss of about 2500 dependent of cource on whose backing them.

              The state games will take as much as you want to spend until the number is over subscribed and they cut any further play on it for that draw.  Some of Steve Player's system progressions have you betting over a thousand dollars a number for the last bet to win that Pick-3 prize that's as good as a lottery jackpot.  If that's your plan, buy your tickets early in the day.  BobP

                 If you're talking about "street guys" it would depend who they are running numbers for.

                  Oh no, I mean, lol, I'm talking about going into the store.

                   

                  But, I see there is no limit, as bob said.  You can put up to $1k on a number.

                   

                  man!  lol  Imagine having $1k on a number that comes up straight?

                   

                  :) WOW!  Feels like a bigger accomplishment than winning the jackpot lotteries,....I don't know why.

                   

                   

                  Anyway, thanks guys for the info!

                  :)

                          There are some disavantages in buying from one source, and peaking out multiple tickets.  As a clerk once pointed out to me, when you turn in a ticket, and value totals $5,000 - the tax man commith!  She said to use no more then one row per ticket, for each combination.  Then you can turn multiple winning tiockets into multiple stores and stay under the tax radar!

                          For example, if you play 4531 and it hits for $3,800.  If you bought a ten dollar ticket, you'd be paying taxes through the nose.  Buy ten tickets, at one dollar per ticket, in the same store, and you're out the door looking for several stores to cash the ticket!  I have nothing against taxes, it keeps the pregnant welfare mothers off of my private street.  However, I won't be chasing the tax man down so I can pay for her cadillac.

                          Cheers

                              Thats for one time?  Do they monitor your drivers license, preventing you from walking into another store?  (Kind of the way New Jersey monitors ammunition sales?)  Unless they do, there wouldn't appear to be a maximum, just a restiction on one ticket sales.  Me thinks, your state would accept every penny you could come up with.  It is  the home of Mary Joe's parents favorite Senator; Ted - the swimmer - Kennedy!
