Ouch, Ronnie316, it must hurt to KNOW that had you played MM (using at least that # sequence in your typical periodic-draw purchase of 41 rows) on that date you would have had the opportunity to have received the solo annuitized jackpot of $29M pre-taxes!!!

Not really, I'm happy to simulate a win and understand the odds. The only guarantee of winning with 28 numbers is a full wheel at a cost of $98,280. however a 4 if 4 wheel has a 1 in 4 chance at a cost of $4931. 

It just so happened that the 4 if 4 wheel was on target with 5 of 5 that day, so I do wish (of course) that I was playing that wheel that day but it took a full 18 draws to get that hit and I had no real expectations of hitting that day nor did I have the cash for so much on so many draws. ($88,758.)

Lets just hope with some planning it can happen on a live ticket in the futue. 

btw, the 41 line 2 if 2 wheel is a 1 in 2000+ long shot for hitting 5 of 5, but I play it anyway because its much   BETTER ODDS than a 1 in 3.8 million QP ticket. lol. lol.

              You might win like those asset managers from Connecticut. They won a $254M Powerball jackpot with a $1 Quick Pick Ticket.

                    I hardly ever buy a PB ticket, so I bought a QP last night cause the clerk made me laugh and asked me to buy one. At first i declined but then said go ahead. I hate when it's so close like one off.

                    Winning numbers,

                    2-16-18-40-42  PB-33

                    My ticket,

                      Had all of your close numbers been right on (3-17, PB-34), you would of had a 3+1 = $100

                      Just be happy there wasn't one more close number, that would have been good for $10K.  Crying

                            You're seeing it the way a terminal might see it, being close doesn't count, numbers are either winners or losers.
