Well today is my husbands 38th Birthday, Last night I went down to the local store and bought a $ 1.00 TN Pick 5 quick pick for him. Well we just checked the numbers and we had 4 out of 5 numbers, So instead of winning the $ 265,000 we won a whopping $ 97.00 Hey thats Dinner tonight out.

Has this happened to you? Tell me your story...I am sick

      Oh yea, I've been there.  This Cash 5 ticket I had in July was off by 1 to win the jackpot (bottom number set).  The last number I missed was a 9, I had a 7. oy.

        Yeah: I'm glad you Won $97 instead of Nothing At All ($0)!

          It's happened a couple of times to me. The most recent incident happened a couple of weeks ago. If I had picked 21 instead of 24, I would have won $10,000 instead of $50. Don't get me wrong, I am glad to have won $50, but $10,000 would have been much better!

                Really it's called gambling and it happens to everyone?!?!? Thanks for telling us all what gambling is. Roll Eyes Maybe the OP and a few of us just wanted to vent about being close to a winning a bigger prize.

                ETA: And no, close calls don't happen to everyone. I know a few people who play the lottery and have never gotten more then one or two numbers.

                      Dear lord Tiggs, I know what gambling is. Everyone here knows what gambling is. This is after all a lottery forum. There is no reason to repeat that line over and over and over again. We aren't idiots. Case closed.

                      And again, not everyone will come close to a "close call" since not everyone plays/gambles on a regular basis. Some people may never come close. Besides, some of us just want a place to express the fact that we had a close call. Exactly what is your problem with people wanting to know if others have been through the same thing? Does it really hurt you that much?

                        Some of us, (including me) consider lottery to be a "skill game" where coming close means you're getting closer to your target.

                        To be sure, buying a QP that comes close isn't a strategy or system that takes skill to implement. 

                        There are things lottery players can do that improve their chances in some drawings in exchange for lower chances in other draws, this cannot be denied.  A correct series of choices can make you a winner.

                        ---

                        The Florida Fantasy 5 has a roll down aspect, if there is no jackpot winner the jackpot money rolls down into the lower tier prizes, so you go to bed not knowing if that 4# prize you just won will be worth $100. or $1,000. a little spice for second tier.

                        If you don't like your state's Pick-5 second prize, ask them to convert it into a roll down game like Florida has.

                              Well today is my husbands 38th Birthday, Last night I went down to the local store and bought a $ 1.00 TN Pick 5 quick pick for him. Well we just checked the numbers and we had 4 out of 5 numbers, So instead of winning the $ 265,000 we won a whopping $ 97.00 Hey thats Dinner tonight out.

                              Has this happened to you? Tell me your story...I am sick

                              Wow. 4 out of 5 Numbers and they only payed $97.00Roll Eyes.

                              Matching 4 out of 5 Correctly in NY Pick 5 usually gives you $400.00 or more.

                              Congrads on the WinHurray!. I'd gladly trade $1.00 for $97.00 Anyday!
