I generally check my numbers first thing in the morning after drawings. I was checking all of my tickets. When I got to my Florida Lotto ticket, and got down to line "G", I thought the numbers looked VERY familiar. The numbers for line "G" are 2, 17, 24, 31, 39, 47. I looked down at the recent Mega Millions numbers, and was shocked! The latest numbers are 2, 17, 31, 39, 47 MB 9! That's the closest I've been to winning a million dollars. Has something similar happened to you?

May the balls bounce in your favor!

        I got a QP PB ticket for just the upcoming draw about 3 years ago. On the day of the draw, didnt match a single number.

        I hang onto tickets for a while, and leave them in a stack. So the next drawing came up...  Well...  my old ticket would have matched all 5 and the PB was just one number off...... I've never been so sad (And a vast array of other emotions) I didn't opt for more than 1 drawing on that ticket.  I actually stopped playing for about year and a half after that because I felt like I wasn't ever going to get that close again. I felt pretty defeated.

          That's why I never save my old tickets.  What's worse than that is jotting down numbers for an upcoming draw and only having a limited amount to play, then finding out one of the numbers you didn't pick would have won.  LOL!

              Wow!  Sorry about that!

              This isn't the same but somewhat close...I buy tickets in different states when I travel.  I was cleaning up yesterday and found a out of state Megamillions ticket on the floor.  I looked at it and saw the numbers and was very annoyed because someone had been in my thngs.  Then I looked closer and saw this was a ticket from last year from a different state than I thought it was.  I double checked with my current out of state ticket and the set of numbers are almost but not quite identical.

                    I once had  NY Lotto ticket that had all of the numbers for the 2nd place prize, which was about 80 or 85k. Unfortunately, you get 2 lines for $1 with NY Lotto, and my ticket had 3 numbers on each of the two lines. I won my $1 back.

                      That's pretty much the reason why I never pick my own numbers! It's nice not to feel forced to play each week just in-case my numbers come up!

                        I don't understand your question.

                            On Dec 30, 2014, I had purchased a $5 Quick pick Mega ticket. On the first line, I had the mega #. On the second line, I had one of the 5 main numbers. Nothing on the third, and the fourth line had 4 of the 5 main numbers (missing only the one number from the second line).

                            Had all 5 plus mega on one ticket, just not all on the same line.

                            I did win $501 though

                              In August 2015 I bought $5 ny lotto which means 10 lines I had all 6 numbers in those lines but only 3 in 1 line so I got only $1
