    i have had 1 game that ws 1 number off, and a power ball with all but 1 number 1 off, and the last one being correct.
    later i was told to work out the odds of being 1 number out and calculation that out.
    it comes up as 2x2x2x2x2x2= or 64 times more likely than getting the right numbers.

    ie for every winner there is likely 64 players out there yelling " ohhh maaaan "

    2014 = -1016; 2015= -1409; 2016 JAN = -106; FEB= -81; MAR= -131; APR= - 87: MAY= -91; JUN= -39; JUL=-134; AUG= -124; SEP = -123; OCT= -84  NOV=- 73 TOT= -3498

    keno historic = -2291 ; 2015= -603; 2016= JAN=-32, FEB= +12 , MAR= -86, APR = -77. MAY= -48, JUN= -29, JUL=-71; AUG = -52; SEPT= -43; OCT = +56 NOV = -33 TOT= -3297

      This is a copy & paste from another forum I posted in:

      On Dec 29, 2014, I had purchased a $5 Quick pick Mega ticket for the Dec 30 drawing. 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 (3-7-44-63-67 / 12) on one ticket, just not all on the same line. 

      I did win $501 though

        Last year my pool had 4/5. The 5th was 1 off and the PB was several off.

        Jan Powerball pool contributions -$194 + $38 win = - $156 Net;  Feb -$320 TBD

              I didn't know MM paid $500 for matching four numbers, but I knew PB paid $100. The odds favor PB, but considering it's a $2 ticket, MM pays ten times as much for the same $2.
