    3 AND 0 FOR ME

    Did you exchange a walk on part in the war ?

    For a lead role in a cage?

      3 and 0 for me, too (Mega Millions).  But that's actually pretty close, three of six is half way to the jackpot  Wink

        Getting half way to winning the jackpot in a jackpot games doesn't count for much.

        MegaMillion  2+1=$10  3+0=$7
        PowerBall  2+1=$7  3+0=$7
        Ohio Classic Lotto  3/6=$2

          I don't know if the Texas Cash 5 is considered a "big jackpot", but I've hit 4 of 5 numbers at least six times in the past few years.

           

          I also hit 4 of 6 in the Texas Lotto last year.

           

          My moment in the sun is rapidly approaching.

           

          Good luck to all.

          BE JOYFUL ALWAYS, PRAY CONTINUALLY, AND GIVE THANKS IN ALL CIRCUMSTANCES.

            These are the closest that I have been. I won $35 dollars on the Powerball and $50 dollars on the Hot Lotto ticket. (If I had put the 21 instead of 24 on the Hot Lotto ticket, I would have won $10,000.) Too bad close doesn't really count. Unhappy

              Mega Millions: 1+1

              Win for Life: 3 of 6 (Valentine's Day 2009 with numbers from a fortune cookie. The first 3 matched the numbers I played).

              Today's winning 3-ball is going to be a number between 000 and 999.

              In a lot of states, lotteries benefit education. That makes the REAL winners the only people who can't play!

                    5 of 6 in the state lottery, many years ago.

                      I've had 4 of 5 twice in Powerball, once in MM, the last just two weeks ago.

                      Even though that's nice, you can't help thinking "if I only had one more number!"

                        In Powerball, I had 4 White Balls and the Powerball with a x4 multiplier.

                          In the 1980's I hit 5 of 6 in the Ohio Lotto for $998. The 6th number was off by a couple digits. I can't remember what the jackpot was then, but nothing like jackpots are now.

                          CAN'T WIN IF YOU'RE NOT IN

                          A DOLLAR AND A DREAM (OR $2)

                            5 out of 6 numbers in Arizona State Lottery.  $2,000.00 payout.  9 months ago.

                            The possibilites are endless.... might as well start at the begining
