...and it wasn't to me.  Sigh.  It was a $5 game that I don't normally play.  (Special Edition Cashword)

I stop at that market almost every day.  What a bummer that the top prize for that ticket was sitting right there, and I didn't even know.

    Def stings. I been before or after $1K wins alot. I know my regular store sold a 10K a few years ago. It is one of those things that I would just rather not know.

      I played from a roll that sold a $45K winner. Im guessing I was within 20 tickets range of the prize. $3 game too !!

      2014 Highest Winner: $500

          I agree. You gotta keep moving or it will tear ya up inside. I've bought the ticket before a $1,000 winner & also a ticket from the same book (a few tickets away) from a $20,000 winner.

           

          Like he said above, sometimes it makes ya think "dayum, I wish I didnt even know". LIfe goes on.

           

          Have to always have the mindset of lottry being FUN & also to win $$. Dont let a circumstance like this take away the fun part of it. Keep trying!

            you have to just keep moving and dont think about it . nothing cant be done about it .

            happend to me months ago

            this place where i usualy play had a winner of 25k in a $2 game

            that paticular one  i use to play there on and off and i was like gdmit . when i heard someone had nailed it in that game  .

            is all about timing and luck our is basicly still due .somewhere somehow .

            goodluck .

              Well, I think it would sting a lot more IF it was a game you did play, non?

              Yeah, I wish I had x-ray vision sometimes so I could "see" which ones were the winners.

              Chin Up and keep playing !

                Gas station 5 miles from me sold a $5.00 cashword and it was a $300,000 winner.

                Game came out Aug 31 - she got the ticket Sept 2.  Ticket # was 13 !

                Long time buyer- see her often in the stores.. Well not anymore !

                You are in NW Ohio- this was in Southeast Mi. We must be close =)..
