Woman Wins $150,000 After Buying 30 Pick-4 Lotto Tickets With The Same Numbers

March 13, 2019


Seen here at least $149,860 richer than I am, Deborah Brown of Richmond, Virginia poses with her oversized check for winning $5,000 apiece on thirty Pick-4 lotto tickets with the same number (1-0-3-1). Some more info while I daydream about holding one of those big checks one day, but without my name on it and wearing a Ninja Turtle mask so none of my friends or family know who I am:

Deborah Brown says she purchased 20 Pick 4 tickets with the numbers 1-0-3-1 after seeing those numbers "a couple of times during the day." She then bought 10 more because she was really feeling it.

Brown says she "nearly had a heart attack."

She's considering using the multiple prizes for home renovations.

The most I've ever won in the lotto is $415 for getting four out of five numbers right in a pick-5 game (five out of five would have won me $70,000). And let me tell you -- I was feeling pretty proud of myself that day. I mean, at least until I lost the ticket. *shrug* Fantasizing about how you're going to spend the money -- that's the real prize anyways, right? "Not really." *takes gulp of desk whiskey, almost throws up, sighs* No....

Thanks to Jorge, who agrees the first rule of winning the lottery is not talking about winning the lottery.

    And now how many people lost how much money they needed playing the lottery?

    Each draw is independent, so it really makes no difference if you always play the same numbers or change them every time.

  • Wooder

    Sounds like she gambles a lot...she may have just broke even.

    Good for her. Now put that cash into an index fund and forget you ever won it.

  • GeneralDisorder

    Question: Does an index fund require she pays capital gains tax every year or only upon withdrawal like a mutual fund?

  • Munihausen

    I'm no Warren Buffet, but you'd have to pay CGT on dividends you receive or CG distributions, but I think most index funds do not track stocks that pay those out, or at least do not pay them out at the rate that a typical mutual funds would.

    If she needs to spend 150k on home renovations, perhaps it'd be easier to sell the shithole and buy something nicer.
