"I hit on Jersey Cash 5.   December 14, 2008, the numbers were 13-12-11-2-16. Believe it or not I played those numbers from what I was cooking for dinner. I use the first letter from everything I cooked which was: Meat Loaf =13, 12; Potato=16; Broccoli=2 and Kool-aid=11. That is what the alphabet give for the numbers I use!! What a Great Day for me."

"On a Sunday in July 2016, I played 378 like 25 times straight. Somehow I had a good feeling about the number that day. I remember going to the movies and after we got out of the movies I checked my numbers for midday. When I saw the winning number I was in shock because I had played 25 times straight. My wife looked at me and she saw I was pale. She asked what happened, is something wrong? I just won almost $7,000!"

"In 2015, I was returning from my vacation in the Domincan Republic. That morning I left my room (#824), and headed to the airport. Upon arriving there I realized my flight number was flight 824, from Puerto Plata, to Newark, NJ. Immediately, being a Lottery guy, I knew once I landed in NJ I had to play me some Pick-3. And that I did, and you guessed it, 20x, I hit straight! Over $6k. Best hit ever!"

"Started playing the lottery when the entry form was two sheets of paper with a sheet of carbon paper between them; you got to keep the carbon copy. Won $1,000 second prize in the NJ Lottery in 1995 which I used half of to buy two (2) $250 tickets to game 4 of the Stanley Cup finals, and with my son, was there to see the Devils win their first Stanley Cup.."

As I was scratching, each game gave me a 2X, 3X, 5X, etc....each amount was $200, and they totaled $10000!!! I was shaking so bad that I thought I was having an attack!!! Came at the right time when cash was tight!!!"
