If you paid attention to my Mega Millions Picks you will see that I got 3+1.

 (On my pay slip  that I played  for fridays drawing I had all  the      number's and the mega ball!!

 I play tickets for my office and needed a certain amount. When I went to the store I had the play slip with all five sections marked. As I was standing in line I noticed that I only needed 7 more and I voided the last three on of the play slips.  The Winner !!!!!!!!!

      Hard to image but very true and very depressing !!!! was not meant to be for me this time anyway!!!

        Are you saying that you had 8 18 22 40 44 + 11  and voided it ?

          I was reading it as she voided the 3 + 1.  If it was THE winner, that was beyond a bummer!

              Yes that  is what I'm saying !!!  I fill out my own slip's and I use my childrens b-day etc. And when I seen the drawing I almost past out ...Then realized I voided those. I have scanned My voided ticket and my winning tickets just to show my co-workers... So they could hang me !!!!!It just was not meant to be

                I'm so sorry!  I'd be Pukeright now if I were you.  And that's why I ALWAYS play my "regular" numbers, cuz I know the one time I didn't, they'd show.

                  Double ouch on that situation. ...

                   

                  Recently I bought a five dollar ticket for a Cash5 $600,000 jackpot. The clerk never changed the tape and the ticket itself came out blurred and blackened beyond readability. I told her to void it and she replied, I cant! The bottom series  lot number is still readable, so just come back and it will tell you if its a winner. That night it hit! For 18 hours I had to wait to see if I was the lucky winner, I go back the next day and the store manager said "sorry but because this ticket doesnt read correctly we cant tell if you won or not" . I explained my situation and his reply was, WEll you should have had her void it! To this day I refuse to leave a store where the ticket is unreadable. I still think I hit ( good ole positive thinking), but the reality is...I'll never know.

                  ~~Is it true, Is it kind,Is it necessary. ~~~

                   Thanks be to the giving numbers: 1621,912,119 02014

                      I'm having a hard time figuring out what that sentence means. Don't you just fill out the numbers in each section and hand them to the clerk?

                         I had to buy 32 tickets for the Mega, I had 25 tickets that I had purchased earlier that day. I needed only 7 more tickets. I had 2 playslips filled out (10) Tickets. When I was standing in line...I noticed that ... So I voided out (3) of the (10) left me with the (7) that I needed.  The one voided was the Winning One !!!

                                                Just So you know there would have been

                                                           5 winners

                        If this does not explain it better I'm sorry I just felt Like I needed to share that..

                          When Maryland had a lottery style game not multi match i transposed 2 numbers from one ticket and put them on another ticket because i had to many of the same numbers on my tickets. this was a big mistake the 2 numbers i took off of one ticket and put on another were the #'s i needed to win...if i had let them alone i would have won 1,500,000.

                          Big John says. You don't hit the number. The number hits you!!!!

                                         I'm not Big John, I'm Four4me, Big John's a friend.

                                Yep I should have followed my own advice. I tell everyone if there in line and the clerk pulls the wrong ticket for somone or for yourself to always buy it.  Friend of mine was in the store and asked for $2 ticket the clerk  pulls off two by mistake asked if she only wanted one. She said yep . The guy behind gets it and Win's 30,000.00

                              Ya, I always buy tickets that were printed by accident. When the PowerBall was at $365M, I bought my $5 QPs. The clerk told me she had another ticket that she accidently printed and asked if I wanted to buy it, and I did. I didn't win the jackpot, but I'm sure if that had been the winning ticket, I would have been so happy that I bought it. Tickets printed by accident count!
