A random number came up in my head while in line today at the store, and I played it 50/50 for $1.00 The least possible price and only one ticket, which netted me $2600 again! Last time I won was about 2 years ago, same thing but different number. I don't play it a real lot so the win is sweeter because I actually cut back on lottery playing. Will post pics later. I love the feeling of winning because you are in shock and disbelief, and think something must be wrong lol. I can't wait to experience that feeling with millions! :)

                  Thanks, yeah I always play straight just to be sure. Funny thing is I never won just boxed yet, only straight and boxed. Too bad I did not play $1.00 or more. But this is easier and no taxes taken out, and straight cash right away. I love that. I am glad the clerk did not mess up as they do sometimes, and give me two boxed tickets or the wrong numbers. It is too hard to hit and too long to wait for mistakes, unless of course those mistakes turn out to be winners.

                   

                  I think the odds are 1/10,000 for straight, so that is tough to beat. Just goes to show you that numbers on a "whim" work just as well if not better than the same number played regularly. My last number 2845 was also a whim and only one ticket bought, and netted me the same amount! Three is the charm! :)

                            Just like last time, this is the first time it has came up ever, wow what odds! What do mean repeater? Boxed? Has also only came up boxed 24 times since 1982!

                            2845 has not came up since 2006 when I won, and only 15 times boxed.
