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 "

" Still swinging, still missing "
2014 = -1016; 2015= -1409; 2016  = -1171; 2017 = ?  TOT =  -3596: JAN= -

keno historic = -2291 ; 2015= -603; 2016= -424; 2017 = ? TOT = - 3318: JAN= -39

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

That is awesome.   How do you get a photo of a  ticket up?

Congrats.

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.
