Has anyone ever purchased a Cash 3/Pick 3 Lotto ticket by filling out the slip with one set of numbers(such as 2-6-9 straight) and apply that to Panel A through Panel E with the same numbers. In addition, if those winning numbers(straight) pop out for a total of \$2500.00, would anyone be willing to use those same repeated numbers by spending \$20.00(using the same 5 paneled marked card 4 times into the machine to provide the player with 4 tickets that has 5 sets of the same numbers on each ticket) on the Evening drawings on a consistent basis at a chance to win \$10K?

Do you know of anyone who has every tried to play Cash 3 by using the same single set of 3 numbers and apply that to Panel A through E(straight) and go on to buy 3 more tickets with the same number set to win \$10,000?

No comments? I am surprised. There has to be players out there who would spend \$20 worth of Cash 3 lotto tickets with the same one set of numbers. Wouldn't it be fun to see people try this method every time?

Playing the same set of numbers multiple times, is not uncommon.  If you happen to win, you can collect on all tickets.

Steve Player collects a lump sum of money on Pick 3, either by Progressive Wagering, or by playing \$20 Straight on one Pick 3 number, which he must be certain, will Hit.

I can't remember the last time I played a pick-3 or pick-4 number only once. The Ohio play slips have a place to check "multiple times" so I marked the number, straight, for how much, and how many times. KY Lottery doesn't have that feature on the play slips and because I was told both ways, players can collect on multiple wins over \$600 on one tickets and also told a W2-G is issued, I either tell the clerk the number and how I want to play or have the clerk run a play slip multiple times.

If you play the same straight number on one ticket, make sure you can easily collect your winnings.

Winning makes me smile.

Sometimes I'll put 4 or 5 different numbers on one card and tell the clerk to run it 2, 3, 4, or 5 times.

The numbers will tell you what numbers to play. Pay attention to the numbers.

Don't just think outside the box, crush it.

That why I like the Ohio Lottery play slips because they ran the card only once, but the machine would print the number of tickets marked. Clerks that didn't know, thought something was wrong when the machine kept printing tickets and I would explain.

I've played the same number straight 40 times @ .50 cents per play. Reason being in NJ they do

paramutual (sp) payouts and the off chance i won and the payout possibly could have been over \$300 on a .50 cent making

a \$1 ticket over the amount where you have to make out a claim form. So I played it "safe"..

In PA the set amount is \$500 on a \$1 ticket so i would get 20 separate tix on a straight bet.

I use the self serv lotto machines to do these dumb bets with as I wouldn't do it with a clerk and a line behind me like

these jokers that rattle off 15 sets of numbers to the clerk do.

I've seen, on multiple occasions, players wager upwards of \$50 on the same pick 4 number. And some lotteries even go out of their way to publicize winners who wagered many dollars on the same pick 4 number.

In PA, one could potentially wager up to \$40,000 (I believe the liability limit is \$20 million) on the same pick 3 number. Up to \$2,000 (\$10 million liability limit) on the same pick 4 number. Or \$200 on the same pick 5 number (assuming liability limit is \$10 million, but not sure what it actually is). Point is one wagering multiple times on the same number is unlikely to raise any eyebrows, and it's expected many players will do so. Though well above average wagering to the point of approaching the liability caps will be scrutinized / seemingly unusual patterns of large wagers on the same numbers.

As for New Jersey and para-mutuel payouts, wagering much more than the minimum bet is risky in regards to payback. Take a look at the number of straight winners / total paid out. Many of the pick 3 / pick 4 drawings take in relatively little money, and hence payouts are likely to be adjusted dramatically downward in the event of many multiple winning tickets.

In contrast, in Pennsylvania, the payout for pick 3 (Daily Number) is a fixed, guaranteed \$500 per \$1 wagered. So if you're planning to wager a lot on the same number, travel to PA, and/or other jurisdictions with fixed payouts. Wagering \$20 on pick 3 in NJ might only pay \$2,000 while in PA it's guaranteed to pay \$10,000. That's a huge difference! Definitely worth the drive regardless of where you're located in NJ.
