Unfortunately it was on two tickets, one that I bought yesterday afternoon was 3+0 (17, 19, 53) and the other I bought seven minutes before the 10:45 cutoff and got a 0+1 (26) on the winning line, both easy picks. Didn't break even with winning $9 but at least I won some of my $15 back, also had 36 on another ticket. That damn 26 as the Megaball came up again!

 

No one hit the jackpot so 125/75.2 Million Tuesday! Big Smile

      CONGRATULATIONS!! I am so happy for you!!! I love to win too! I won today, on 07/18/08 -- matched 3 numbers, won $7 and very happy! That was $1 investment! Party

      I bought a ticket because a cashier told me to, the way he looked at me and said: You should get  a ticket today. Then, a man before me comes in and buys a BUNCH of tickets. I figured, these are great odds and jumped right behind him. It's so nice to win!

        Well at least you won some of your money back! That is a lot better then winning nothing. Congrats!

          By the ways all my numbers were pretty close! Must buy more tickets!!!

          17-29-33-54-55 Mega 20

          Did you notice how many people played 20 as Mega this time? I know at least 6...chances are you too did it, am I right? :)

          Actual numbers were : 17, 29, 36, 53, 55, Mega 26

            Yeah, I'll take the nine bucks, most I've one in over six years, certainly better than nothing. Of course it'll be going towards this Tuesday, I usually buy only one to five at a time but since I won nine dollars I think I'll take it and buy nine (on individual slips like before) at once, or maybe five and then put the other two back to the place where I bought the picks just before the cutoff.

             

            Nah, no 20 for me, I never even as a white ball, had 21 five times though. O_o

              Dang Nabbit!! Nothing for me tonight.  Not even close. I got 1 right lol.  It was purchased with money I won ($3) form Wa Lotto.  I was going to get it at my towns only grocery store, but their whole computer/phone systems went down so they couldn't except debit cards......or validate wins and make tickets I guess.  So...I ran across town to the gas station.  Thought it was a sign...ya know?  "winning numbers will be at the gas station".........but i guess it was just trying to tell me not to play today..lol  I totally read that one wrong.  Better luck next time I guess..............I wish...........I hope.................I dream.............I betterJester

               

              WOW! Those numbers were close diamondperl!  I had that once too.......crushed me badBang Head I thought "ya! my ticket! sounds about right!...tease me...thats just great"  Its like being NEXT to a slot machine winner at a casino.  So close.....SO VERY CLOSE........but no cigar.  I hope to one day win something over $10.00..... most i've won in years.

               

              Good luck to ALL @ Next Drawing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

                  I too use my winnings to get more..........makes me feel less guilty.  Depending on the jackpot amount (to cut back on spending I wait till they reach a certain amount) I've been running to the grocery store or gas station for Wa Lotto (Sat & Wed) and of course the MM as they are up there in $$$$$$.  I've been on a roll with winning a few.......I mean a FEW dollars here and there $2 or $3, and using the wins to get more.  I have ran out of Lotto or MM wins to trade so gonna have to use my $3 scratch ticket from yesterday for Saturdays Lotto.  Hopefully I win some to help out with Tuesdays MM lol.  So far.......I think I'm at least even.Banana

                    I've been waiting on that 26, but in Powerball.

                    "...a chance to push everything aside, the circumstances that've controlled our lives, and do it our way now. Good, bad or otherwise. You'll maybe get lost in it, tied up in it a little bit, but if you work your way through that the real you shows up, I think. Maybe what's at your core deep down, maybe that comes out. Maybe that's what it's about." Mike Pace

                      I know!  What is with that 26?  Wonder if it'll be another three-peat like a few months ago?

                      Very strange.

                        Fifth time in two and a half months and 36 has also come up three times, two of 36s was back to back. Then I think there's at least other number that's come up twice. But that's a lot of 26s considering there are Megaball numbers that I think, haven't even come up once in a year or more.

                          Actually that was the seventh time a bonus number had repeated in 22 drawings and the sixth time a bonus number had repeated in 21 drawings and both were the number 26.   Bonus numbers that had repeated in eleven (#11) and twelve (#27) drawings were the most popular so I played them also.  I just wished I had played #26 more than once  since I matched one 3+0 and three 2+0 in 20 lines.  The 3+0 and the 0+1 did get me $9 of my $20 back.
