That is, have you ever won by filling out a playslip wrong, things like that, etc...?

One time my wife read a number for the wrong day in a horoscope magazine, and it hit. Paid $290, sweet for a boo boo!

You?

Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

      One time the machine ran out of paper mid-purchase. Because there were still credits, the employee had to cash them out at their own expense. Gave me two random scratch-offs, both were winners. Plus I got a free QP.

      Another time, not really an accident but very random, I happened to have $2 left in the machine and just for the sake of not leaving it I hit a QP (usually I play my own numbers). Later that won $50.

      If the chances of winning the jackpot are so slim, why play when the jackpot is so small? Your chances never change, but the potential payoff does.
      If a crystal ball showed you the future of the rest of your life, and in that future you will never win a jackpot, would you still play?

        Filled out my playslip wrong. Did front pair instead of back pair, or vice versa. LOL  Won $50.

          One time my wife and I decided to buy scratch offs and I ended up winning $20 by accident. The clerk tore the ticket my wife picked and she didn't want it, so I bought it and it turned out to be the $20 winner.

            No- what would ultimately surprise me is being the sole winner the PB/MM jackpot....that l would have accomplished what millions have not. That in it of itself would be considered a  " major historical accident" for me - one l would treasure till the end of my days.

            l await that " accident" to happen and will welcome it with Open Arms. Big Smile

                My mom doesn't fill out play slips, so she told the clerk her numbers and wanted them for evening draw. Well, the clerk did it for midday draw and she won $5,000.

                  The clerk punched in the wrong number for my P3 Str8 and I won $500 on it.
