Played our state pick 5 game. (Badger 5)
Probably about $150,000
Missed by 1 number. Again.....
01 08 25 27 30
01 06 08 25 27
That is the 14th time missing by 1 number.......
$50 instead of $150,000
Oh Well! :-)
Your state still has good odds to win 5 of 5 with only 31 numbers to choose from.
I hit 4 out of 5 twelve times in Georgia Fantasy Five back when they still only had 35 numbers to choose from. One time I missed not just by one number, but by one digit, like from a 3 to 4. So for a long time now, Georgia has 39 numbers to pick from. Makes it a lot harder. I've never hit more than 3 out of 5 since they added the additional numbers. Usually only match two numbers (if any) for a free ticket. No longer really have that expectation to win the jackpot anymore but still still buy the occasional ticket.
You need to go ahead and win that jackpot before somebody in Wisconsin gets the brilliant idea to add more numbers.
Good luck !
