Since the Lotto generator is still broken, and with the holidays coming soon, we'll extend the lotto's for now. They'll run for two weeks and both the numbers which are generated will count. You can, however, submit only one set of numbers.
~Aeneas~
Rules:
Only one post per person (not per alt), per week.
Submit your numbers before 02:00am Eastern (02:00 EDT 'gametime') this coming Sunday.
You may post 4 x 4-digit numbers.
Posts containing more than 4 sets of numbers will be void.
Winners may only claim one prize.
If you have multiple winning numbers you must accept the largest of the prizes.
You may win prizes based on how many numbers are correctly matched to the winning number. The numbers must be in the same digit place. Example: 1234 and 1243 have the two common numbers of 1 and 2. But the 3 and 4 are not in the correct place. In the case two numbers match, you will win the Lesser Prize. If three numbers match, you receive the Runner-Up prize. If you're lucky enough to have chosen all four numbers correctly, you will receive the Jackpot!!
Repeat numbers are allowed and all numbers between 0000 and 9999 are acceptable.
Prizes:
You may win vertically on any of the 4 lines.
You may only win horizontally on your first 3 lines (the 4th line is used to create the vertical entries).
You may get the jackpot on a left to right diagonal (but only the jackpot)

Another stumper, courtesy of the old Voice Spencer himself! The explanation of the previous stumper has been posted in the previous lotto thread, and might help you with the solution of this one.
---
If the double rule from the Dice Game mentioned in last week's Spencer's Stumper is eliminated, 2 and 12 are new possible totals. Beth informs Kim that 2 is worth the same as 6 and 10.
"Ohh, so if 10 is a value of 1... that means 7 is a value of 3, right?" Kim asks.
"This is why I like you, you're so clever! I'm glad I didn't have to spell that out for you. Yes, you're right!" Beth smiles.
How much is 12 worth?
