Now how about this:
That same evening the clerk that had the dream had printed a Cash 5 ticket by mistake. It was 5 quick picks for $5 total. I had already picked my numbers for the evening and had a limited amount of cash to spend. So I rearranged the tickets that I had already filled out and bought the ticket from him.
I went to the store the next day I say a couple of numbers on the ticket that looked familiar. So I added that ticket value I calculated at $4 to my set of tickets to play for Friday midday. Before I ran my tickets on that Friday midday I decided to cash in the Cash 5 ticket and add the money to my Pick 3 game.
The clerk says, "I can't cash this ticket." I replied, "Why not?" She said it's because we don't cash tickets over $50. Come to find out the ticket had 4 of the 5 Cash 5 numbers. Wow! It was worth $311.
Of course I bought a Powerball ticket too. I just about flipped out! Went back to the store where I bought the ticket and tipped the clerk. What a great feeling! Now $311 isn't a lot of money but it's the most I've ever won on Cash 5. My last big win was $10.
One more thing. that ticket was one number away fromt he Grand Prize of $67,000.
On my way out to play the Powerball. Be back lata!
