      The rules weren't made to prevent players from buying fixed jackpots. I'm pretty sure any state lottery would allow a player to buy a $1 straight ticket on the 1000 possible pick-3 outcomes and gladly pay them $500 the next day. The rules are there because of the rolling jackpots when the jackpots occasionally exceeds the possible outcomes. I don't know if the rules are based on an amount of play, based on the amount of time a terminal would be tied up, or a combination of both.

      Your problem is with logistics because the lottery needs a printed ticket with all 98,280 of your bets. I can bet a 10 horse superfecta box (3024 combos) on one ticket but the lottery terminals don't have that capability. When you go to the lottery office, ask them why they don't offer that type of bet and mention that race tracks do.

      I'm pretty sure any state lottery would allow a player to buy a $1 straight ticket on the 1000 possible pick-3 outcomes and gladly pay them $500 the next day.

      I would think if a state became aware of someone buying a thousand pick3 tickets to win $500, they might investigate whether they were laundering money.  50¢ on the dollar might be pretty good for that.

       * you don't need to buy more tickets, just buy a winning ticket *

        Ok mc,

        I went down and spoke to Susan who is the office manager at my local Lottery office. She was absolutely delighted to put 2 people on the job of running my near 20,000 play slips though their 2 terminals if I would only produce them. (and the cash of course)

        She said they get requests for a few 1000 QP at a time but never more. They could start right away if only I would settle for QP's, but otherwise I would need the play slips.

        I spoke to her about wheeling and boxing numbers which she had never heard of, but did think it was a great idea and that I should hope that they offer such a thing in the future. 

        interesting ronnie...did you ask if there would be a problem if some of your bet slips were printed and not hand filled??

        certainly 20,000 playslips to fill out by hand would be daunting...it would be worse than those stupid composition they used to make us write in grade school...your hand would start hurting...you would start to overdose from the marker...you would start to hallicunate after a while...

        you are looking at minimum 10 hours str8 with your felt tip pen...which might even run out of ink....

        maybe she could put 2 people on the job of also filling in playslips??

          That was nice of her to offer but probably any retailer would be happy to assign a clerk or two to print them for you since he would be getting 5% of sales($4900+) for his troubles.

          any retailer with two machines might be willing to do it...or maybe if you know a store real well then they will let you stay and print the tickets over nite...although i think some terminals go offline in the night...new york used to be like that...but i believe there are some 24 hour gambling locations nowadays...

              Hey topnail.... yes on your numbers.

              They stay in play until you change them.

              Or you can ask to stop playing them any time.

              After all, why are we wasting our time with this?

              Im still playing all odd numbers, until I make a change.

              The object is to win 5 of 5 more often than 1 in 38 draws.

              If you "beat the odds" you will be the champion of the world.

              And you prove that some number combinations have better odds.

                  This is one very funny post LottoBoner, you have me LMAO over here.

                  Considering mc and I got two completely opposite answers at our respective Lottery offices is it any wonder that I DIDNT ASK????? lol. lol. lol.

                  We all know what its like to get an overly cooperative widow clerk only to find out (when we go back as instucted) that it was really THE CLERK FROM HELLL IN DISGUISE......

                  Knowing that is a government en-titty I'm sure it would be best to make out the slips both ways and bring all 7 cases of paper in and ask which one they prefer......   And then get refused service all together.......   lol. lol. lol.

                      That's why the chosen number combinations are posted BEFORE the drawing.

                      Which reminds me RJ, you posted 28 numbers but not a bonus number.

                      Please post a bonus number to go alone with your chosen 28.

                      Unless of course you are tired of pretending.

                      Some people can pick winners.

                      Some pretend.

                      You?

                              Not too late, only takes a few minutes to generate the numbers into a list.

                              Post whenever your ready.
