    hit the daily number

    Dear all,

    A man got a large sum of money - he actually stole them - and called his wife on the phone saying:

    "finally something nice happened to us. I got lucky. I hit the daily number"

    {His wife doesn't know that he stole anything}

    What is the meaning of "I hit the daily number"?

    Thanks a lot.

    It probably means the daily lottery prize.

    Re: hit the daily number

    Yes, that's what they call it in my state. A daily three-digit number drawn randomly.

    So he means "I won the lottery"? Is that it?

    Yes, but as itīs a daliy drawing, it probably wasnīt a large sum of money. It all depends on what one considers "a large sum."

    Re: hit the daily number

    Yes, winning the lottery. Normally a bet is $1 to win $500.
