I Lack But Heart The Math Gene

Has Couple Found Formula To Win Lottery?

Yeah, ya think, but wait. Look at this:
Verlyn and Judith Adamson of Mount Horeb each claimed a $350,000 jackpot this week for having the winning numbers in the state SuperCash drawing last Saturday.

But they didn't mention at the time that they also held two more of the winning tickets.

They claimed two more $350,000 jackpots Thursday. All four were purchased at different locations, but with the same numbers and for the same drawing.

The total winnings increased to $1.4 million, or about $955,000 after taxes.

Emphasis added by me.

Something seems to be up here ... but I'm not sure what.
