Man Plays Same Numbers On 160 Lottery Tickets, Wins Big

He “just had a feeling.” Kwame Cross bought 160 tickets this month for a Virginia Lottery Pick 4 game. He played the same four-digit combination for every ticket: 7-3-1-4. The result? An $800,000 payday.

Cross said, “I saw an address in a TV show, in the background, and for some reason, it stayed with me.” Despite the 1 in 10,000 odds, those numbers hit the Pick 4 top prize of $5,000 which was multiplied 160 times. Cross is a small-business owner in Washington DC, and said he hasn’t quite decided what he’ll use the money for; it’s all still very surreal.
