I think Stack is right.  When I first saw the picture, I thought he must have played the same 5 and bonus from 1 to 35.  He played Power Play and based on the New Hampshire breakdown, there are 34 Match 4 winners playing Power Play.  It's probably him.

It's real, but the question is "how much does he play?"  It's like Richard Lustig, he plays a lot.  They never tell you what their returns (ROI) are.  They only talk about or post photos of their "wins."

They rarely tell how much they spend.

That money's gone fo ever

    That is some incredible faith in a bunch of numbers because if he did play 35 tickets at $3 a whack, that's $105 for one game only. Either that or he is a wealthy man and that is pocket change for him.

    Four other players  else where matched 4+1 with PowerPlay, I wonder why they aren't bragging too?

      They are missing out on easy money from gullible people. I bet if Steve decides to sell his "system" he will make more than the money he won on this drawing.

          That's $105 for each five number combo they played and no telling how many. It's like the guy who won $200,000 playing pick-4; we know how much he bet to win that amount, but we don't know what else they bet or how much.

          He will be wealthy if people believe his system can consistently pick four of five numbers and buy it.

            Think of it as an advertising expense. The goal is to convince people that they should send him money. It's a lot easier to  get people to part with their money if you can convince them that you've won a bunch of money.

            Showing a real ticket and a real check doesn't mean much. We still have no way of knowing who bought the ticket and why. I'd happily pay 10% extra to buy such a ticket from somebody who won by random chance if I though it would let me sell my "system" for 5 or 10 times that much. Documenting that the winning numbers were suggested in advance, and that the suggestions didn't require spending substantial amounts of money would be far more persuasive, but we'd also need to see that this is just one of many instances.

            Unless you think that the lottery isn't random, which by definition doesn't create predictable patterns, how can you believe that somebody's "predictions" have any success that isn't just luck or the result of probability (which requires spending more than you win)?

              Wrong on the tax part Luke..

              This is an excerpt from the New Hampshire Lottery):

              Q: If I win, how much of my prize will be taken out in taxes?A: The Lottery Commission is required to report any winnings over $599 to the Internal Revenue Service using a W2-G document; this will be sent to you at the end of the year. There is a federal tax withholding of 25% for any winnings over $5,000. The top federal graduated tax rate is 35%. Lottery winners may be at a tax rate other than the 25% withholding rate. Non-residents of the United States will have a 30% tax withholding for any winnings over $599.

              ******************************************************************************************************************************

               

              There is no State tax on lottery winnings in New Hampshire...!

              Thanks for pointing that out MADDOG10. After a little research I found info that said NH cancelled the gambling tax back in 2011.

              I currently purchase my Powerball and Mega Millions tickets in NY State and from what I understand I would pay 30% non-resident tax + an additional 8.97% State Tax = 38.97%.

              I think I might consider buying my tickets in NH from now on.

                Yes this is most probably real. Anyone who is familiar with "Steve Player" and his systems knows that he boasts his winning tickets heavily. Just take a look at his catalog,lol. And his newsletters (which I still receive once in awhile though I only bought one of his cheaper systems YEARS ago.)

                I have seen his winnings posted before on the NH site many many times.

                This company sells many high priced systems. They can afford to buy tons of tickets,I'm sure.

                  I don't know but I am fairly certain he didn't spend $39,000 worth.  Tell me, what's wrong with Steve Player, what is it that you don't like about him.

                  "Tell me, what's wrong with Steve Player, what is it that you don't like about him."

                  I didn't say anything is wrong with him or that I don't like him.

                  And I'm not saying it's intentionally deceptive to show your winning ticket without mentioning how much you spent to get it or how much you spent in countless previous attempts to get a winning ticket to promote sales of your system.

                  I'm just cordially suggesting that it might be helpful to know that stinkin' information.

                    Just think if he had all five numbers right playing that way, he would have won the jackpot plus $68M in seconds prizes and NH might have had to use some back-up plan to avoid going bankrupt.  Now that might be worth bragging about.

                      Yessir that would be a real quandary for NH Lottery.

                        Steve Player -" I WON THE POWERBALL GAME LAST SATURDAY!!! That's right - take a look at my winning ticket. I had four numbers right plus the Powerball number, and since I Power Played it, this combination was worth $50,000.00!!! I also had 4 numbers right four more times on the same ticket which won an additional $2,000.00. That's $52,000.00 in winnings (or $39,000.00 after taxes)!!! This is the second time I have had four numbers right plus the Powerball - next time I plan to get all five numbers right for a Jackpot win!!! It just goes to show you that my winning Lottery systems and wheels really do work; for me and for thousands of my friends and customers around the country. I have posted my winning ticket and winning check below for everyone to see".       GOOD LUCK...Steve Player

                         

                         

                        I question the authenticity because of the date on the check.  How does someone receive the money so fast.  I thought it was at least 6-8 weeks before a check can be issued.  So if my math is right, he hit on the 2/21 and then on 2/24 receives a check, just 3 days later, something does smell right, who's with me?

                        Ummmm.... Don't pay attention to the check.  Look at the actual ticket.  Particularly the NHLottery LOGO and the barcode style, the side banner, the color...

                          Two questions:

                          How many stinkin' tickets did "Mr Player" buy?

                          And:

                          I forgot the other question.

                          But it was a very cogent question.

                          You can believe that.

                          I'm fairly certain of it.

                          Geesh Ridge, cogent... I had to pull up the web dictionary.  Now I have to find a way to use it three times in a sentence. 

                          1. All in all I think the evidence is less cogent than it once was.
                          2. Cogent evidence supports the aforementioned statement.
                          3. Ridge Runner provides a cogent analysis of the situation.

                          Im a feelin' a little more edumacated thanks to you RR!
