Just checked my ticket for last Tuesday MM drawing.  Matched first number plus the Mega ball. With the rest of the numbers only one or two numbers off from the wining numbers. 

 

Anyone else ever come close to winning anything major ?

    Yep, I did.  The only game I play is Supercash.  Its a 6/39 game with a jackpot of 350K.   I hit 3 numbers and the other 3 were 1 number off.  I won a buck on those 3 numbers.  LOL

      I play mostly major and state lotto. It's funny on the day I bought the ticket, everything seemed to go well for me. It just seemed different somehow.  My mood was a lot better than most days. First, when I met this friendly employee at this store who gave me a discount on the item I bought.. Then later while at the train station  I met this nice girl and talked to her. In the evening I was talking and getting along with my mother's boyfriend who I don't usually get along with. And I didn't even notice all of this at first until now.

          My Mass Megabucks Doubler last night was one off on 5 balls and two off on the 6th.  Arrgghhh.  Didn't actually match any.

            how's this for close?:

            QP on today's (11/18/15) CA's SLP (47/26 matrix)

            13-14-21-37-43+6

            drawn:

            13-21-34-37-41+2

            I would've hit 5/0 for about $38K if the two numbers I missed were transposed.  Still pretty psyched to get $11 for 3/5.

                Nothing new to me , since 2009 that in every draw I play for the pick 6 games

                from my country Argentina games just like Quini 6 and Loto I hit one  , two or three

                numbers and the else I fail just for one number

                Example:

                I play :  03-10-12-25-27-34

                Draw Result: 03-11-12-26-28-34

                  "only one or two numbers off from the wining numbers. "

                  That's not nearly as close as you think. The game draws balls with labels on them, not numbers,  so the idea that 7 is close to 8 is an illusion. You played labels for balls that mostly weren't drawn.

                  I once played the correct labels for a 2nd place prize of almost 90k in NY's lotto. Unfortunately it was 3 of them on each of the two lines you get to play for the $1 bet. IIRC I got my dollar back.

                    When you talked about how your numbers are closing to the drawn numbers, actually you are ONLY talking that your numbers are closing to the drawn numbers in the TIME DOMAIN. That is, suppose you selected 29, but actually 30 showed up, the difference is only one. But when you checked those two numbers in the FREQUENCY DOMAIN, you will find those two numbers are totally different, maybe 29 has been skipped over 50 draws, but 30 maybe just show up in the last drawing. So your numbers are totally wrong in the FREQUENCY DOMAIN.
