The SM promo of buy 5 get 3 free ends after Mondays draw so......

NOOOOO they extended it through September!... I was only going to play again if I hit on Take 5 First!!!! Its hard not to take advantage of the 3 for 5 deal....each ticket is actually \$0.625

Well, I bought the SM promo today...looking over the numbers I got didnt thrill me.  I bought 5 partial QP's and of course, the other three freebie's were QP's.

I probably need my head examined, but......... today I created a spreadsheet with all 100 drawing of SM.  I've been reading The Net, and doing some "analysis" on the SM numbers.  I've learned a few things already. For instance, a 3-even 3-odd split hasnt happened as much as I expected that it would.  A 4/2 split seems to be a little more common.

The average sum of the drawn numbers (or mid-point sum) is 123.  The range to play is a sum from 95 to 151.

I think the key thing is whether or not the extended promo produces any JP winners in Sept.  There's no doubt that SM has far better odds than any 6/49 game, but for me personally, the jury is still out on SM.

YES!!!  I did it again, I got 4 numbers on Sweet Million last night, 15, 17, 22, and 37!   This time the winning numbers were on the \$5.00 ticket, not the freebie!  My losing numbers were 01 and 02, not very close to the other winning numbers; 23 and 35.  On Monday I won \$3.00 on the freebie ticket.  Now I can play SM for the rest of September on you guys, so thanks for contributing to the SM pool, hopefully one of us can win the big one someday! I'm going to miss the SM promotion when it ends!

Somebody's gotta win it and it might as well be you, or me!

I feel for ya... not too long ago I bought 20 bucks worth of Take5 tickets.  All I got was one crummy Free Play.

Not that I like him but it would be fun to see him call the numbers!  And maybe since most people feel like you do about him each night they could have a 'guest' player that Kicks him off screen if they lose!!!

Today I went to one of my favorite Lottery retailers to cash in my \$40.00 SM ticket, and the girl said, "New management took over today and one of the first things we did was get rid of the Lottery machine, but you can get your money at the pharmacy next door!"  I told her that I don't buy tickets there and I would go to another (favorite) retailer on the other side of town to cash it in and buy my NY Lotto and PB tickets for tonight.   This place had a \$56 million dollar NY Lotto winner last year, I can't believe the new management got rid of the lottery machine, I am very disappointed that I have to find a "new favorite place" to diversify my luck, especially since I've had a lucky run with SM the last few months and purchased a few winners at this place.  The Irish couple who won the \$56 million are lucky the new management didn't take over last year before they purchased the big winning ticket (it was a QP)!

My Mom missed the million last night by ONE NUMBER, she had five numbers and won \$500.00!  She said the only reason she picked up the \$5.00 ticket was because of me,  she sees my Sweet Million tickets around the house all the time and heard me talk about the September promo (maybe she will give me a tip, lol). She won on the freebie, I still can't believe she came so close, she matched 10,29,30,31, and 33 (she had number 6, but 34 came out instead).  I read on the NY Lottery web-site that only 35 people won \$500 and she was one of them.  The ironic thing is I never buy my tickets where she purchased her winning one because it's too close to our house and I told her the store didn't feel lucky to me (lol).

Mom got confused about Sweet Million, she wrote down the SM numbers down last night, and went to bed thinking that she had only matched four numbers because she thought the 5th matching number she had was like the Mega number!  When I woke up this morning she asked me if I had the SM numbers so I looked on-line and as she was reading her ticket aloud and I told her that she had 5 numbers and SM doesn't have an extra ball like Mega, and she was still asking me if I was sure she won \$500.  Actually, if she was playing MM and had 4 numbers and the Mega number she would have won \$10,000, or if she had all 5 numbers in MM (like she did on SM) she would have won \$250,000, but she didn't realize that because of her confusion, and I suspect she was thinking she won more than \$500 on SM for matching 5 numbers because she's not familiar with the prize amounts for SM.

Don't worry, Mom won't waste the money you guys put in the SM pool, she is on a fixed income and the money will come in very handy, I'm so happy for her, she plays NY WIN4 a few times a week and hasn't won anything in a long time, and a few nights ago she played 9253, but 9250 came out instead and she was very disappointed, so I told her to keep trying and she will win soon, but I never thought she would win SM!

Well, I was almost the daughter of a millionaire which would have made me a millionaire someday!  I didn't have 3 matching numbers last night, the first time in three draws that I ended up winning nothing. I hope the next time I post here it will be to say that Mom or I won the big one , we'll keep trying!
