Was  up  in Indiana  Tuesday   morning  and  while  up   there   I  stopped  and   bought   One  Regular    Mega   Million   ticket

 

When I got back home to  Kentucky  that nite ,   I bought  another   One   Regular  Mega  Million  ticket  about an hour before the draw

 

 

Winning  number  that  nite           16       32*      39         41        53*                 MB       16

 

My   Indiana    Ticket                    16       33        39          41       55                   MB        27

 

My   Kentucky  Ticket                    11      24        32*        49       53*                 MB         8

 

 

The     32*      and    53*   that  I  needed  to win  the   250,000.00    on  my Indiana   ticket  were the exact  two  and only two that hit on my Kentucky  ticket

 

I came close years ago  to   20   million  on  the  PB  ,  back when I used to pick  my own numbers (  before they added all the numbers to the PB game  (  I seldom play the  PB  anymore )   Similair  to above but had the PB that nite also

 

Tell  Your  Story  of  some  close  calls  that  you have  had  on these  Jackpot  games

 

I am sure there are many closer than above......

 

But  I  thought it strange that the two I  missed  were   the   exact   and   only   two  that  I  hit  on  the  Kentucky  Ticket

 

And  only   two   total    tickets     were     bought 

 

But..........I  may  as  well   missed  by  a  mile

    Wow. You came closer than I ever did. Well, I did get 5 out of 6 on Ohio Lotto that paid me $998 years ago.

      Worst yet, the gas to travel back to Indiana to collect your winnings will cost more than your winnings.

            Well   thats  sad  but  true    RJOH      .......  sad  but  true

             

            But I go up there quite often  anyway  ,   so  will  pick  it  up  then......and  probably  buy a few more   MM  Tickets  with  it

             

            And  then  probably  lose    ,    so  they  will  get  it  back  anyway    LOL

                I've mentioned it a while back in a thread similar to this but we used to save our fortune cookie numbers when we ordered out.One weekend I wanted to start playing cash5 for a few weeks and planned on using one of the fortune cookie numbers.I had noticed that all our fortunes were in blue ink except one that had red ink.

                It struck me as odd and those even looked like potential winning numbers on that fortune.I played for 2 weeks and only got 1    3/5 for 10 bucks.

                Long story short I used them for powerball for 2 draws with 2 other sets of number.I hit 4 numbers and the multiplier was 4 so nabbed 400 but the scary part(and the part I keep punching myself over) is I also had the wiining PB number itself 1 row up with another set .

                Looking back I couldn't believe why I used 31(My favorite PB number) with the other set of numbers because I became obsessed with the red fortune numbers.Had I put it with the 'red fortune cookie' numbers it would have been 40 grand.

                God damit to shoulda coulda wouldas.It was sheer idiocy on my partMad

                    Seems  that  way   marcie  many  times

                     

                    Some  stores  or  places  seem  more  Lucky  than   others

                     

                    Either because of the high   volume  of  tickets  sold  at   those  stores ( so thats where they turn the winners  loose ) or just a plain Lucky  spot........whichever  way  a  person  believes

                     

                    Either  way  .....  that  was  a  Good Job  on  hitting   4   three  different   times   like  that   Thumbs Up

I still clearly remember my winning numbers which were: 4-5-11-14-21-22-31-44-51-53. The game has since been discontinued a long time ago. After taxes I got a check for $34,000. Memories...Why can't it happen to me again?!
