I love hearing stories like these! (people cashing in tickets like that)  Gives me hope that maybe I can do the same thing, although not as often I'm sure.  Maybe I need to hang out in the store a lot more.  Makes you wonder just how often these people hit like that.

 I wouldn't throw away most of my money won just to play MM.  I might throw $20 at the MM.

Good luck all!

The clerk told me he normally bets

like this only when the mm is high.

        You got it TheMaker!!!

        I spoke to a guy in Fancy Gap, VA years ago who did that because he bought $20 straight on a number in VA and WV and they both hit. So, he was cashing his tickets whenever he felt the need.

        He was a whiz at hitting the pick 3 in VA and WV and I know because he showed me some tickets!! He wouldn't tell you what he was playing or when either. Would only show the tickets after they hit.

        I would love to be the clerk who sells him his lottery tickets.

        When he plays big money, guess who else would??? Hiding Behind Computer

          The $500 he won was found money, so how is turning it around on more lottery tickest any different than blowing it on something else? If he plays a couple of bucks a day on numbers he'll spend about $700 a year and he can expect to winback $500 every year and a half. Using that $500 to play PB or MM when it's really high is a better strategy than  spending $5 on each draw regardless of what the jackpot is. Yeah, the odds are still extremely high that he's just throwing it away, but they're still better than throwingit away $5 at a time.

          Here's my vote for what may have been the stupidest thing I ever heard from a lottery player. Probably 15 years ago, NY lotto was  extremely high for jackpots at that time. A NYC news crew was doing a story and talked to some Wall Street guy who was buying $500 worth of tickets. He said he invested millions of dollars every day, so risking $500 on the lottery didn't seem like a bad deal. I won't quarrel with his basic idea to spend $500 on lottery tickets, but the bit about risking millions on a daily basis suggested that he didn't have a clue about the relative odds for the lottery and whatever investment he might be making with the millions of dollars. If I was his boss and heard that I'd have considered firing him on the spot.

              Luck sometimes does come in streaks, but typically by staying in the same game. I think you all know about the guy up here in MD.  that hit a straight P4 one night for $5K  then spent $100 on another single P4 the next day and hit it straight! Bada bing $500K! + the $4,900 from the night before.  I get on losing streaks more often than winning streaks but when I hit heavy, I play a little heavier for a day or two to tempt fate on the perceived start of a streak.

              I seen people drop hundreds of dollars on P3 to cover a huge spread and yeah they'll hit but won't cover what they spent! But you could spend $1.00 on Mega or $10,000 on Mega and the odds for the big payoff are essentially the same.  Anyway, I hope the Mega and the Power get hit by one of us!  LOL jarasan US Flag
