Anyone else feeling that sting of disappointment? or Were you lucky enough to hit something?

 

  I at least thought I would hit some numbers (on the same line).  Only 2 numbers on different lines.  Oh well better luck next time.

Naw, not really,

I had my 1 reg. draw w/MP

My reg.ticket still has another draw on it for the next base JP, I will happily accept that.

Also 3 xtra tix w/MP and had zero.

But I knew the odds going in, so maybe I'll just quit w/the xtra tix.

 

Maybe I'm numb after 40 years of playing, except when living in non-lottery states

    2 out of my 5 tickets had the mega ball so I won 8 bucks but really lost $2 on the investment.I was highly disappointed I had no other numbers on the winning tickets.Congrats to Cali and GA

      What I meant was when the jackpot rolls around to about $200 million or a little more. So I would take the lump sum, which would leave you with about $60-70 million after taxes. I would be happy with that amount.

      I Agree! It's unfortunate that most people don't realize that the net cash value is only 27-32% of the advertised jackpot annuity.

        I will opt out again until it hits $400,000 plus.

                I won a little over 18 million with just one QP. Finally, my ship came in.  Yay !

                  I ignore the advertised JP and always look at the CV

                  Of course for me it don't matter much as I usually just buy one ticket per draw.

                    I would'nt call it a sting MS.Numbers. It felt more like being run over by a Tractor Trailer with studded snow tires and  dragged through six States on a gravel road.

                    LOL That is so funny but I definitely can relate.

                      oh yea....lol...I was trying to drink some tea before leaving and typing at the same time. But for the occasional super big JP, the 75 numbers still don't interest me otherwise.
