I went and bought $10 worth of powerball quick pick tickets for my mother today while she was gone to work.  One of the lines had 8-17-22-28-52 and powerball is 16.  I always buy the same line of number each time I buy my tickets which is 3-8-17-22-28 and 41.  Kinda close huh?  Tonight might be our night lol.

How are you going to win if you don't play?

      I remember I used to buy one quick pick and one where I pick my own numbers when the jackpot was $100+ million, but I never got more than three common numbers for both tickets.  Since I went to strictly quick picks, I had never had more than one common number (and no, it was not the powerball).

        Oh well didn't win anything but that was nuts!  The odds of that are the same as matching 4 numbers on a powerball drawing.  1:12,249

        How are you going to win if you don't play?
