So I just checked the Powerball numbers from last night. They are: 1 24 33 45 49 PB: 6

I also just checked my PB ticket (2 QPs) and the first line is 2 25 32 44 49 PB: 7

 

So it looks like I actually matched the 49, but I was off every other number, including the power ball, by exactly one. I am pretty much in shock, because of how close/far I came to winning so much money. I'm not sure if I should go jump off a bridge or go out and buy more lottery tickets. Is this a common thing/has this ever happened to you? What should I do going forward?

    i come close many times, not as close as you, the balls are all the same save for the # on them,

    if something like the makes you want to jump from a bridge,

    i'd say you should quit playing.

          Thank you. Have been playing MM/PB for several years and have been lurking LP for several weeks.

          After thinking about my "situation" for a while, I guess it actually makes me more eager to play. It's proof that your numbers can actually come up if things align just right. I may have just missed it this time, but who's to say things won't work out down the road. Thank you for your help.

            Happens a lot fossil. don't let it trouble you. A few years back I had 5 + 0 for the PB, missed hitting $115 million by just the PB#.

            I'm sure hundred's of others on this site could convey to you similar stories. If this were horseshoes you'd be in great shape. But with

            the lottery (unless your playing boxed pick 3-4 numbers), it must be exact.

             

            So don't jump off the bridge, just keep pluggin away and your day will come!   Type     Hyper

              Thank you, this is comforting to hear. I suppose it could be a lot "worse" by getting even closer, i.e. just missing the powerball or something like that. Will keep playing!

                Hey 5+0 doesn't suck either I mean $1,000,000 is still a nice chunk of change. Although it would suck just missing the PB by 1 still..

                    For me that was back in "07" on an easy pick, which was worth $200k (unless you had the PB multiplier for another $1).

                    Now of course with a PB 5+0 you would receive $1 million.

                      fossil134,

                      Close only counts in horseshoes, hand grenades and artillery- boy does it coin in artillery - but not lotto.

                      It's definitely a Bang Head , but not that uncommon.

                      Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                      Lep

                      There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                        Welcome to LotteryPost fossil134! 

                        Sounds like you are on the right track if you have come so close to the winning numbers! 

                        and as to the bridge or tickets?  it would depend on the bridge (low to the ground or surrounded with soft things to cushion the fall), but mostly I would opt for more tickets as long as you know what your 'max safe bet limit' is; and do not go beyond it.

                          Jumping off a bridge is the only one of those two actions that will guarantee a "hit". Clown

                              If you're buying quick picks, there's not much you can do differently, maybe buy them at a different time or different place.  And with PowerBall, you can't even cancel them if you don't like their looks.
