Hello-

Any suggestions or help would be much appreciated.

I played Powerball last night with my numbers. I don't have a scanner but I do have a picture of my ticket, -

My numbers 16, 20, 26, 46, 47 and PB 04

The Winning- 15, 19, 26, 45, 47 and Pb 03 

I can't copy and paste a pic for some reason. Can anyone help?

Thanks-Unhappy

    Koda, Your answer might be here

    BTW...it appears to me you are on the right track, all you need to do now is apply a +1 & -1 to your various numbers.

      Koda, you tried so hard on your picks, but PB did roll to 157 million.

      Koda, Do me a favor and reply to my current topic: http://www.lotterypost.com/thread/141461.

          Koda, this thread is called MM Jackpot is higher than PB now. This topic was started after PB rolled in the last draw. However, PB's annunity jackpot is less than MM now for this upcoming draw.

            Koda, did you select those numbers, or were they a QP ?

             

            If you selected them, I'm curious as to how you arrived at choosing #19 AND #47 ??

              Hi Guesser-

              I picked 19 and 47 as good repeats. Powerball has been repeating lately.

              Best of luck-

                Guesser-

                I pick my own numbers and wheel them. I always pick some numbers to repeat. The wheel put 19 and 47 together in the same line. If that makes sense. 

                Best of luck-

                  are you serious about this? 

                  16, 20, 26, 46, 47 and PB 04

                  The Winning- 15, 19, 26, 45, 47 and Pb 03

                  That's creepy...

                  Ask yourself the question..What are the odds...I were you i would keep the ticket, put it on a frame and show all my friends...Whats is quick pick or you pick them by yourself?That's what i was thinking the whole time day before yesterday..Do you see the Reciprocalcy...And to think that they do pre-testing...

                    Nothing creepy or surprising about it. I am sure that most anyone who has played more then a few tickets have a similiar experience. My favorite is when I have selected ALL the winning numbers and they ALL show up on the same ticket, BUT not on the same line. And yes, I have done it more then once for more then one game.

                    Unfortunantely, close only counts for hand grenades and horse shoes. All you can do is continue to tweek how you are doing it and be willing to toss in a few extra variations.

                    Anyway, good luck and have fun,

                    Sir Metro

                    They say if it doesn't hurt, your not doing it right...oh wait, that's a different subject, nevermind Red Devil

                      Hello-

                      They were my picks. I am still sick about it but motivated. I played $10.00 Wed night and I would have won the jackpot and many smaller prizes. My lines had a variation of either the winning numbers, I had 19,26,47 and 3 for the powerball and i had lines with  one number away from the winning numbers or adjacent numbers which were  16,18,20 46 and 4 for the powerball.  The funny thing is that my brother in law lives in NY and plays Mega Millions, on Tuesday night he had all 6 winning numbers within 2 lines and they were QP. Then Wed I did this- We were faxing eachother our tickets in disbelief that we both were so close!!

                        This reminds me of the last powerball drawing and my mother played 5 lines and she goes look I got all the numbers.  She had a smile on her face and I looked at the ticket and they were spread out over the 5 lines.  It is like two ships passing in the night close but no cigar.  It is just a coincidence.  I have had tickets over the years that were just like my mother's ticket and just like yours were some were a match and some were off.  I always tell my mother when she checks her tickets if you do not have the numbers on the same line it is not a winner and you have nothing.  I would not give it too much weight.-weshar75

                          Yeah, since the last WB change last August, there have been dual repeat numbers like 6 times, I was just curious as to how you came about picking dual repeats now, that's all.  6/106 wouldn't make me look at it, maybe that's why I'm not hitting it - yet.

                          I had 19, and I had 47 - just not in the same game.
