Hi everyone!

 

This is my first post. I've been reading posts on this forum for couple months now and i must say, the members on this forum are just awesome (thank you!)

I had to sign up and share this story as it is killing me right now.. lol

Today i went to my local supermarket Publix and purchased two $3 Florida Lotto Tickets which makes me eligible for the biggest prize; $28,000,000.

 

I just checked my lotto number and i got 5 of the 6 numbers correct on one of my ticket...   arrrgghhH!

 

The winning numbers were 3-15-19-24-37-51

My number: 13-15-19-24-37-51

 

it all came down to 3 and 13...

 

at first i won and i screamed... then i checked again and i was severely dissapointed at the 1 in the front of the 3.

 

sigh......

 

i guess i should be happy with $4,476.   Though $28mill would have been better. Today, I probably had the closest chance ill ever have to being a millionaire...

 

I WAS SOOOO CLOSE!!!! arghhh lol.  Crying

            I would be so tempted to try and use some "whiteout".  ;-)

                  Congrats on what you did win. Most people haven't even won a prize of that size.

                          Hi duke2011 welcome to lottery post. Dont feel too bad. Do a few jump kicks to the butt. Learn to listen to your gut instinct. And obey next time. Trust me there will be a next time. We have all experienced what happened to you. As a matter of fact two has happened to me within the past few months. Read the payday that got away and listen and you will hear. No it is not a good feeling but move past it and keep playing. When I miss the mark I always tell myself that I can't miss what I never had.
