I remember reading in the paper quite a few years ago, that this guy and his son , and his son's friend , stopped into a gas station ( I think it was ) early one morning. His son bought a few tickets , QP's I think , and his sons friend done the same. The son's Dad , being old school , was standing in the background and was drinking a small bottle of tropicana orange juice.
The son said, come on Dad and buy a couple tickets. His Dad said , I dont buy tickets....... but his son talked him into it. His son said, I will get you a couple Quick Picks......His Dad said, no....if I am gonna play, I will pick my own numbers. His son said , okay, what numbers do you want.
The Father looked on the back of the bottle of orange juice he was drinking and said .....these numbers........and he told his son to play those. His son just shook his head and said okay and played them.......then his son said, give me one more bunch of numbers Dad.........his Dad said , play those again on the next ticket also. His son said , no , you dont want to do that. You have a better chance if you give me one more differant bunch of numbers. His Dad said....." No......if those first bunch of numbers are good enough for one ticket , then they will be good enough for the other ticket ". So against his better judgement , his son played them again on the second ticket........the exact same bunch of numbers.
His son and his friend walked out of the gas station, smiling and shaking their heads , thinking how old fashioned and set in his ways his Dad was.
This was on the KY. Cash Ball game .........top prize back then for all 4 numbers and the cash ball ( which is hard to hit ) was 200,000 if I remember correct.
Well,you guessed it...the drawing came out later....and his Dad hit all the correct numbers ( that he used off the back of the orange juice bottle ). But he had two tickets the exact same , so he won 400,000 instead of 200,000
Morrow of the story ( and it is a true story ).......is .....I reckon he showed those young whipper snappers a thing or two.
