Has anyone came close to winning a lottery but off by a few numbers, variables, etc? Without going into too much detail, I was close to winning a Pick 4 midday today.

    I almost won the PB and MM a bunch of times.

    I was only off by a few numbers.

    5 or 6 at the most.

        I'm a spot player and bet $3 straight and $3 box on one pick-4 number for one drawing and missed the box by 1 number.

          It's the plague to every lottery player of all types on this board whetherJP or P3/P4....we would all be well retired if close counted for something other than horse-shoes and hand grenades  lol

                    Sure, by one number.  I've matched 5of6 twice in Ohio's Classic Lotto and the numbers I played in February of 2013 to do it were also posted on the prediction board.  All it proves is I've gotten lucky twice because the rest of the times I can't get even a 3of6 and I pick my combinations the same way every time.

                            I once had the first 4 numbers of 6, such a high level of excitement quickly followed by such a let down. I remember i stopped at 3 in and shook my head, thinking to myself that i must be reading the ticket numbers to check the ticket numbers. Then i read the fourth, i thought this is it and it cant be true at the same time, then the 5th brought me back to reality.

                              I had a friend one time few years  ago ,  that missed  everyone of the first 5 numbers on PB  by one number up

                               

                              Then about 6 months later  after  that ,  I  had another  ( different friend)  that missed everyone of the first 5 numbers  on  PB   ,  by   one   number  down

                               

                              That was one of the strangest things I had ever seen 

                               

                              But I suppose anything is possible in a game with that many combinations 

                               

                               

                              I bought a ticket one time in Indiana as I was traveling , and then when I got home later that night , I bought a ticket in Kentucky here ,  right before the draw

                               

                              Only two tickets were all I bought that day  (  and even though I usually pick my own numbers ) both those that day  were   QP's )

                               

                              Draw came in that  night  ,  and I had three of the first 5 on the Indiana  ticket  , and  only had two numbers of the first   5  on  the  Kentucky  ticket

                               

                              But later that night after the draw  , something about the two tickets kept bugging me

                               

                              So I went back and looked , and the two numbers  that I had hit on the Kentucky  ticket , were  the other  two numbers  that I needed to win the first 5 on the Indiana  ticket

                               

                              Sad  But  True   ,  but  such  is  Fate  I   suppose
