    dpoly1,

    PS,

    What does Carnegie have anything to do with you justifying a need for the kind of money?

    Lurking

    Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any. So many systems, so many theories, so few jackpot winners. 

    Lep

    There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

      How did you know what the Powerball was going to if it wasn't won?

        Really enjoying the comments from the newest members to Lottery Post.  Quite refreshing.

            Caved in and picked up a couple MegaMillions tickets.  Was probably crazy driving 30 miles out of the way to buy them in South Carolina, if it hits at least I’ll be able to stay anonymous.

              I had come closer than that CD!

              Back in 2014, I bought a $5 quick-pick up in Connecticut on Dec 29, 2014 for the $177 Mil jackpot Mega Millions drawing the following day.

              The winning numbers drawn were 3-7-44-63-67 MB 12 

              When I checked my ticket on Dec 31, I had ALL 6 NUMBERS on the one ticket....just not all on the same line.

              I did, however get 4 on one line for $500 and the Megaball number for $1

              So close, yet still so far!

               

              Yes sir, that 4th line would have made me smile.... Close,but no cigar

                I had one like that myself back in 2005: https://www.lotterypost.com/thread/121976

                Not only was I one number off from getting the first 5 numbers, but the number I needed was on the following line, in the correct position.  (I also had a 3+0 match on the same ticket.)

                I still remember the feeling that my heart raced when I read the first three numbers lining up.  I can't imagine what I would have felt if they kept matching up along the rest of the line! Shocked

                Edit:

                Oops, I forgot I had done another 4+0 match in Mega Millions a few months earlier the same year!

                https://www.lotterypost.com/thread/111624

                That one was from one of Lottery Post's wheels (this one).  I liked that wheel because at the time Mega Millions had 52 numbers in the main number pool, and the wheel had at least a guaranteed 2+0 match every time for playing 40 lines.  (A "2 if 5 of 52" wheel.)

                    Agree with stupid

                    And you sound like a Stalinist

                    dpoly1,

                    You're calling me a Stalinist?

                    Hey STUPID, it wasn't Stalin who said Ein volk, Ein reich uind Ein Fuhrer.

                    Study up on history before you make comments that make yourself look like an idiot. 

                    Enough of this and return to your jackpot fever, you who need 1 billion or more.

                    Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any. So many systems, so many theories, so few jackpot winners.

                        Why does anyone have to "justify" a "need" for any amount of money to you?

                        It's because you think like a Third Grader!
