Has anyone ever won millions in Pick 3 or even 100,000?

    Good question, I suppose it's possible.

    Did you exchange a walk on part in the war ?

    For a lead role in a cage?

      I wonder if many people play Pick 3.  I'm not playing it yet but have been thinking about it. The only thing that gets me is - how much you have to keep up with it (back and forth) trying to catch a number all for some change.

        I've been playing Pick 3 and 4 for a couple of months now. I won once for $290, that is because I had a straight box and got all 3 numbers directly in a row in order! I don't think you can win millions playing the pick 3, it would be too difficult. But it is nice to win, even if you grab a box hit for $40 or $80 in Illinois...

          Pick-3 is still the most played online game and is second only to scratch-off tickets in sales. It would take a $2000 bet to win $1 million and the bets have been made many times but I don't recall reading where any of them won. Five figure payoffs are more common than we think because a $20 bet will get you that. Six figure wins are more common in pick-4 games but people have won over $100,000 playing the pick-3 too.

          It's possible a winner could cash in the tickets at multiple locations before the tickets expire and avoid paying taxes, but personally if I won that type of bet, I'd take the tickets to lottery headquarters because I don't want to take the chance that IRS agents or the FBI will be knocking at my door.

            It's so ridiculous that gambling winnings are "income"

                I guess getting the number straight is not so easy. If it was, we would hear of more people winning millions.  All it takes is to win 25,000 times box for a year to win a million (not too easy either).  I think even 50,000 a year would be good.
