How come so many people win multiple times in a month on the 4 number games?

I have been checking the PA lottery website for years now and every month you see some guy playing the 4-number game that wins $5,000 fifteen times. Do you think he is coming out ahead on this or no?

One guy hit 5k like 20 times in a month. I wonder how many tickets he buys at a clip..probably 2 or 300 i would imagine. Any other guesses? I just for the hell if spent $20 and bought 40 big 4 tickets. hmm...

    Yes, I've seen that too.

    People listed as having 10 wins, 15 wins. Makes you wonder if it's a misprint sometimes.

    Have you seen the ones where it's 3 = 5 winners and they have the wife claim a couple...

    I think that if you have 20 tickets @ $5,000 a pop, you are making out fine.

    I'm just waiting for some straight hits here....what I'm really waiting for though is my case of PAYDAY candybars...they didn't call yet.

      You mean people like this from the Pennsylvania website

      ALFONE , JOHNCONSHOHOCKEN$2,500.00
      ALFONSE , JOHNCONSHOHOCKEN$2,500.00
      ALFONSE , JOHN TCONSHOHOCKEN$2,500.00
      ALFONSE , JOHN TCONSHOHOCKEN$2,500.00


      It means he bought 4 tickets at 50 cents straight.

      Big John says. You don't hit the number. The number hits you!!!!

        "It means he bought 4 tickets at 50 cents straight."

        No, it means he presented 4 winning tickets. It doesn't tell us anything about how many losing tickets he had, or when he bought acquired the tickets. It's possible that he won on 4 different occasions, but it's more likely that he simply had 4 tickets with the same number for the same drawing.
