In Powerball I once got 3 of 5 + PB.  And for Oregon Megabucks I've gotten 5 of 6 twice - once for about $1900 and once for $2200

    Hit 5 of 6 in the Ohio Super Lotto Plus when the matrix was 6 of 40, quite a while back. Quit playing Super Lotto Plus when Ohio Buckeye 5 arrived and hit 4 of 5 twice. Only put money on Buckeye 5 and now Ohio's Rolling Cash 5 with the exception of Mega Millions occasionally when the jackpot gets large.

    Super Lotto became Super Lotto Plus went the bonus number was added.  I don't remember any versions of the Super Lotto game having a bonus number added other than the last 6/49 version.

      Well, I guess it was Ohio Super Lotto then! It was 6 of 40 with no bonus ball. Ohio only offered this game for about a year, and Ohio Buckeye 5 was introduced about the same time it ended.

        The Ohio 640 game had 280 drawings starting 04/09/83 and ending 04/18/87 and Buckeye5 started 04/06/93 and ended 10/02/04 after 2,723 drawings.  I tracked and played those games as well as the 644 and 647 versions.  I also played the 654 version that was 50 cent a play before the word Super was added and the price changed to $1.00 a play.

          Twice I picked all the numbers and both times didn't buy the ticket. Once I picked all the numbers but the bonus ball and did not buy a ticket. And numerous times I have had the 4 numbers, fortunately I did buy the tickets most of those times. Yeah, I know....can't win if you don't play. sigh.

            3 + 1 on powerball.  So close!  Still got $100 out of it though.

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

              Hit 3 plus PB about a year ago.

              My favorite is the folks who say I was just few numbers away! I just smile and say yeah ..we are all a dollar away from playing and millions away from winning.

              We try to simplify the fact that with less then 60 balls in a canister we should surely hit some of them! What is less visual to understand is taking ten pounds of sand, painting only 5 grains a paler tan color and then telling a person to find all five painted grains within 30 secs! Its plum near impossible.

              So to those that do find a few of those grains, be glad! You've beat the odds and have some hope that it can be done!

                4 out of 5 plus the powerball number  $10,000 total. It was  a two person ticket.  We both got $3500 after taxes.  This was just recently  FEb 8, 2006  powerball.

                  I am beginning to appreciate the fact that I haven't got more than 3 + 0 or 2 + 1, after over two years of playing and alot of money. I hope break that record before summer because I feel I made a break through with my system.

                    In the previous powerball I hit 4 out of 5  and won 400 bucks. Yeah one white ball away from 800,000 bucks.

                    I don't do quick pic, I chose the numbers. 50 % of the time I get my money back by hiting 3 out of 5

                      Best I've done on Powerball is 3 numbers or 2 and a Powerball. I did hit 4 out of 6 on Louisiana Lotto a couple of times though. Close, just not close enough.

                      PrisonerSix, just curious.  Have you ever been to Angola's Prison Rodeo?  I started playing the lottery in your Parish!  I thought it was an interesting means to a lifelong goal.

                        Powerball: 3 plus 1 with the other two digits both being off by one and two. What a nightmare.

                        Lucky for life: 4 of 6 with the remaining two being off by one. Also hit 4 of 6 five times now. I still feel the stress from both. The only thing that could cancel out the long term pain would be a jackpot win to justify it.

                          I don't play Mega Millions too often.  My best win is 2 + 1.

                          For Lotto South, I've gotten 4 of 6 five times and 5 of 6 once.

                            If you count the Pick 5 games. I have hit 4 out of 5 three times before they went computerized. I haven't played more than 2 or 3 times since...I have one on record here from way back.

                            Some of the post doesn't show because of the changes that Todd made to the forum after that but you get the idea. I posted 4 lines. If I would have wheeled them I would have hit top prize. but hind sight is always 20/20.
