    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

    "today I went to my local supermarket"

    "I checked my lotto number and I got 5 of the 6 numbers correct...."

     

     

          today is Friday.  there is no Lotto on Friday.  that's a neat trick.

      Hey DUKE2011,

      Congrats on your win!

      Years ago I hit 5 out of 6 numbers on CA Super Lotto(per my previous posts mentioning this it was Super Lotto not Ca Lotto) LOL I dug out my copy of my ticket last night.   Anyway.......

      My numbers were 3-4-19-30-31-50

      And the winning numbers were 3-19-30-31-34-50  (Jan 25 '97)

      I had a 4 not 34

      I was so excited even to get 5 of the numbers and my win was only $2055 LOL half of yours.

      AND HAHAHA there's those consecutive numbers in my win.

      After I moved to Chicago I read in the paper about a man who hit all 6 numbers on Super Lotto(may have already been changed to Super Lotto Plus) and all 5 numbers on Fantasy Five and he did this on the same day! Just goes to show...anything IS possible!

      If your really determined to be a millionaire you'll get there...LOL that education has to be good for something.

      Congrats again : )

        Is funny because if you was a "DUKE" a titled given to certain i think it was aristocratic or wealthy people in old times and if you was a duke in today's modern day, you would had won that the LOTTO or gotten many 5/6 as many times as you like...

        In those times, Dukes were the equivalent of Today's Billionaires...

          And yesterday was Thursday.He didn't say what state he is from,but I'm guessing he was playing in a state that has a lotto game that was played on Wednesday and he checked his ticket on Thursday.Not much of a trick there.

            Which gave me an idea, something i think i said on LP couple of years ago...Since the community of Wealthy Individuals around the world "MIGHT" be growing, there needs to be a Powerball/Euromillions just tailor for them....Where the cost of each tickets might be who knows 10 dollars per ticket, 20 dollars each ticket or more and whose jackpot is way more than Powerball, something like once every week or every 10 days i don't know...Everyone can play it but its bases will be wealthy people....I say this because you are not necesarily on the same balance with someone who is wealthy you are not competing the same...Or a system that will keep wealthy people growing, and not dwindling....

            Can you imagine if you are competing against a billionaire for Powerball...LOL...Anyways you look at it you come out losing...Anyways you look at it: women, house, fight, watch [lol], Powerball, stock market, school, even your wife you come out losing....Anyway you look at it you come out losing so i think wealthy people should compete among themselves...At least a special Powerball for them...

            Can you imagine someone who has special needs competing against someone who has a networth of 400 million dollars FOR POWERBALL...Just the interest on 400 million is like 25 million EVERY DAM YEAR...LOL....I said this years ago but no one paid any attention...

            so if i take 300,000 out of those 25 million each year, just 300,000 dollars on strategically tickets AND LAND IT on Powerball strategically, tell me what will happen...or 600,000 tickets what will happened? Does that special needs person has a chance? and remember those 25 million are just to waste.....

                I hope you didn't buy the Publix Supermarket chain too. That can get quite expensive.

                  With a lot of people unemployed right now, my husband included, a win of $4,476.00 is a hugh blessing and you should be very grateful to receive it; no it wasn't $28MM however Winkyou are $4,476.00 richer than you were last week!!!--enjoy the win and keep on playing your numbers everday because you never know when they will hit!!Smile

                  thank you all for the encouragement.

                   

                  i have a quick question. everyone here keeps talking about that "one" set of number that they play every week.

                  do you have to play the same set of number everytime?  i just get anywhere from 3 to 5 QP at a gas station (everytime i need to fill up my car).

                   

                  shouldnt random numbers also do the trick?

                          today is Friday.  there is no Lotto on Friday.  that's a neat trick.

                    na, its not a trick.

                     

                    first of all, i wouldnt lie about how disspointed i am on a forum would i? rather i would probably brag about my winnings - not the other way around.

                    i just figured i would share my story with everyone here because it seems everyone has experienced some form of dissapointment by playing the lotto.

                     

                    the FL Lotto has two drawings per week: Wednesday night and Saturday night.

                    I checked my number the night of the drawing (wednesday) and i went Publix and they told me that they couldnt award any prize winnings abouve $600. so i had to go to the local lottery hq.

                     

                    you can accuse me of trickery all you want only if i make a statement that i hit the $28,000,000 jackpot lol.   :D

                      Duke2011,you can play any sets of numbers you want.Some folks like to play what they consider to be lucky numbers,over & over.Others choose to play numbers that they wheeled themselves.Still others always play quick picks.Whichever way you pick the numbers is entirely up to you.

                        I'm playing the same numbers every day/week/month what seems like "forever" along with (1) or (2) OPs to even the odds  If you have a daily system of numbers you play every day or week, stick to it because as I stated before, you never know when they will hit!! GOOD LUCK TO YOU!!Banana

                          Dude- I am trying BOTH on NY Take 5, as most of the winners seem to come from QP's for Take 5.

                          Money won is twice as good as money earned!

                            ya im looking at some of the powerball winner story and lot of them seems to be simple QP from their local gas station.

                            whether they bought 100 set of lines or just 1, it seems most are QP.

                             

                            hmm...

                             

                            well i bought twenty $3 FL Lotto today.

                            figured ill put in $60 since i won earlier this week.

                            after this week though, i would go back to my usual $6 per drawing rule ($12 week).

                             

                            wish me luck! :D

                              shouldnt random numbers also do the trick?

                              I NEVER play the same set of numbers "lucky numbers" birthdays etc. I ALWAYS play numbers based on what's been going on the past few draws.

                              Take a look at the numbers drawn in whatever game it is you play. Really look at them. Are they numbers you would have chose to play together? Are they all your favorites combined? Probably not.

                              I learned a long time ago NOT to play numbers just because I like them. Play numbers that have the best chance of hitting!

                              And think of it this way....if you don't play the same set....you won't be stressing out thinking if you don't play those numbers they're gonna hit.
