    Close never seems to matter in games like that. I've had all the numbers on a Powerball ticket and on another occation covered all Powerballs and matched 3 of the White balls. Nice money but far short of winning the big one.

      I've done that twice on a 5-game Powerball card.

       

      BE CAREFUL - it might suck you into thinking if you 'try' a little harder, and play more games, that you'll hit it.

      I'm fighting that very urge right now - to play more than 10 games a draw - part of me wants to wheel about $120 worth of games, but my head sez no....... stick with my $10 limit.  My head is winning.

          Yes, I have been that close to "jackpotting", and I have posted proof.  Here are two near-jackpotting tickets:

            kios: Congrats on getting all the correct numbers.

            It's not as close as you think- it might as well be no matches for what you got paid...

            Better luck next time- get them all on the same line....then you will be celebrating...

                Yep congrats on getting all the numbers on one ticket. Maybe next time you will get them all on one line! =)

                  On a $5 PB/MM tickets you can have 25 of the 55/56 core numbers and 5 of the 42/46 bonus numbers which can include 265,650 of the possible 146/176 millions combinations of either game so you should expect to have all the winning numbers on the same ticket sometime and win nothing.

                   * you don't need to buy more tickets, just buy a winning ticket *

                    In this Fridays coming drawing........here is a hint.....you will do yourself a favor if you have either.....3 numbers of a particular set of 10's......can't tell you which one wether it is teen's, 20's 30's 40's or 50's. But take my hint and you will again have all the numbers on one $5 ticket.Coffee You can send me a bagel when you win.

                      Good for you kios that you got all 6 numbers in separate lines. What was your best payout?
