I've hit 5 of 6 in the state lottery 2 times - once for $1900 and once for $2200 ..... but the last one was over 5 years ago .... I think I'm about due for another "big" win ;)

Missed it by "one" digit--Daily 4 last night--
the numbers were; 1217; I played 1117, which is my baby grandson Evan's birthday; so, so close but I know it will eventually hit very soon and very big-KEEP ON PLAYING AND KEEP ON TRUCKING

One time I hit 3 + 1 on the powerball (from a quick pick) to win $100.
It was great and I wasnt expecting it but just getting even 1 more number to hit $10,000 would have been....wow.

For me, it was last week in Mega Millions. I checked my ticket here and found that I had matched all 6 numbers on one of my tickets. The only problem was that the numbers were scattered on different lines of a $5 ticket.

Best I've done was 3 + 0 in Mega Millions back in 2004.
Now....on the other hand, I came VERY close in a very different fashion late last year in Win for Life. I used a buy-one-get-one free coupon for Win for Life (so, I got 2 quick picks for the price of one). On one of the tickets, each of the 6 numbers was literally one away from what was drawn, high or low. That's the first time I've witnessed that. There have been a couple of occasions after that I came one away high or low on 4 or 5 of the numbers. I've actually thought about buying a Win for Life quick pick, then using the numbers on that quick pick and play some more tickets with numbers one away high or low.

MegaMillions 3+1 a few years back.
When I opened the paper and looked at the numbers, my heart skipped a beat.
I think the jackpot was high too--around $150-200 million.

i won 5 out of 6 on the 6-49. i had a dream 2 years earlier and these numbers finally came out. won 1900+$.
the 1 that got away was also around my 6-49 win. western canadians might recall the 6-36 lottery. if...yes the biggest word in gambling...i would have played a 7 number combo i would have won 350 grand.

Back in the 80's (New York started selling lottery tickets in 1978) I hit the second prize twice in one year for the grand total of about 5 grand. In those days the top prize was in the 5 to 6 figure area.

The closest I came was when all 5 of my numbers came up in the Virginia Cash5.
I had a 48 draw, multi-draw ticket - they came up on what would have been the 49th draw.
I had asked for the maximum amount of draws when I bought the ticket. The girl told me the max was 48. I found out later the max is 91. Ouch.
Note to self: Never trust a clerk. That was a $100,000 lesson.
That was a couple years ago and I just recently started playing those numbers again and got 4 for a hundred bucks not long ago.
I got 5 of 6 in the IL Lotto once for $1900 plus.
