Dear LP Family.

Here's yet another "On my way home from work." story.

Today my husband called me at work and asked me to bring him home a bottle of A1 steak sauce.  I didnt want to drive to the grocery store  for a single item so I stopped by a  neighborhood corner market instead.  As you would guess,  after the transaction I said "you know what, just get me   ONE Fantasy Five quick pick."

I just checked the CA lottery site and noticed that I won  3 of 5 for $14! 

It really does take just a dollar!  I didnt win with  my regular set but  at least I get to play my  week long prepay for "free"

One of these days, I'll get my 5 of 5!  I just know it!

    Good job lottocalgal! The quick picks do work. Keep on playing and it might just come to you.

    If I was one to study and regularly play big games (I'm not) I'd still buy a quick pick or two with my regular plays.

    Good luck!

      Congrats.

      I played random numbers at the counter about a year ago in fantasy five in florida, and got 4 out of 5 for $720 bucks. ( back then, if there was no JP winner, themoney rolled down to the next tier winners, 4 out of 5), (now you can't win more than 500 bucks)

       Even though I was happy, I was kicking myself in the butt. When I was filling out the betslip, I was telling myself to not pick a high number for my lowest numbr pick because in the previous days a lot of low numbers were drawn. And believe it or not, i actually looking at the missing number when making my picks, but something told me not to fill in that box.

      I would have been the only winner, About 275 grand.

          Yeah, but some butterfly might have flapped his wings while you were deciding not to fill in that number sending the chaos theory into warp drive thereby giving you the 4 numbers you did get because if you picked that number the other four would not have come in.

          Or the opposite.

                ThanKs everyone,

                It's sooo weird,  I have NO thoughts of "maybe I won't win the jackpot."   And its not that visualization stuff or even hope,  Its a strong feeling of a future event in my life.  I have read stories about people saying that  (of course after they've won) but you never know.

                I don't expect to win Super Lotto Plus,  I just hope.   But I EXPECT a win from Fantasy Five!!!  I plan to upload the winning ticket to LP for proof when it happens.
