We have heard a lot of lottery players buying identical lottery tickets to increase their chances of winning. One such player took this strategy to yet another level by winning a whopping amount of $800,000 with identical 160 lottery tickets for the same Pick 4 drawing.
The majority of the Pick 4 players would jump out of joy at the prospect of winning just one Pick 4 jackpot worth $5000. But Kwame Cross of Dumfries experiences this feeling 160 times after bagging 160 lottery jackpots totaling up to $800,000.
In a press release Cross said that he saw an address in a TV show in the background and for some reason, it stayed with him. He had this uncontrollable urge and purchased 160 identical tickets with the same number combination of 7, 3, 1, 4 for the nightly drawing on December 5. He purchased all of them at the Rosslyn Sunoco gas station on Fort Myer Drive in Arlington.
Cross learned about his phenomenal win when he was waiting in a drive-thru line at a fast-food restaurant. He told the Virginia Lottery that as soon as he learned about his lottery win, he just couldn't believe it and thought this couldn’t be real and actually felt surreal to him.
The lucky winner had beat the odds of 1 in 10,000 of matching all the four numbers in an exact order to win the top prize of $5,000, that too 160 times!
