I bought a CT Cash5 ticket and of the 5 numbers, I had 1, but was one number off from matching the other four. 5 out of 5 pays $100,000.00

Anyone else come close like that?

    Mr. Meatman,

    Oh, that's a doggone shame.
    No. Other than when I used to play Keno regularly,  I was never that close to winning anything significant,
    though I won Keno for several hundred samolians a couple times.

    But Keno is a sucker's game.  I even played one ticket, one number last night, when I went to pick up some extra numbers for last night's MM.     And nothing, nada, zilch, zugga, methen?

    Mr. Groppo

    • Don't chase the numbers you play.
    • Play only numbers you've already played, plus however many random picks.
    • But, ALWAYS the regular numbers you play.  This will make you a winner, not a chaser.
              (so far, though, I've yet to win any significant lotto prize)

      I had never come close and never played the game before.

      I hope that one $2 ticket is the only one that matches all 5 numbers plus the Powerball to win the largest Powerball Jackpot in United States history of over $2 Billion Dollars!

            The drawing that jack whitaker won the powerball I had four numbers in the first five on the top line of a $5 ticket and the other two numbers were further down the ticket but on the same ticket for all six numbers.  But not on the same line so not really close at all but I like to think in my head that that was as close as I got to big jackpot money.-weshar75

              I had something like that in one of the mega millions drawings last week. Between two lines played, I had 4 of the 6 numbers making up the results of the night. 

              But also on this past Thursday's rolling cash 5, I had three of the five numbers off by one digit, and the other two were off by no more than 3 or 4. I don't know if it's worse to end up like that after the drawing or to just be nowhere remotely close lol...

                  He's another "CLOSE, BUT NO CIGAR"ticket. (I had posted this before)

                  The winning numbers for MM 12/30/14 were 3-7-44-63-67 MB 12

                  I had the Megaball on the first line, one of the 5 numbers on the second line and the other four numbers on the fourth line. All 6 numbers on the same ticket, but not on the same line!

                  Megaball win = $1

                  4 of 5 (white balls) = $500

                  Total win for ticket = $501, but if all the numbers were on the same line, it would have been $172,000,000

                    I probably have at least once in my life l'm sure. What I do recall was a few years ago I had jackpot on just two lines of Lucky for Life (the old, much easier to win matrix).One line was a 4 of 5 and won me $100, and the other line I had the remaining white ball and the lucky ball. The only time I felt REALLY CLOSE  to winning a major JP in my life.

                        I had never come close and never played the game before.

                        It's very hard to win the jackpot in any of these games.

                        I hope that one $2 ticket is the only one that matches all 5 numbers plus the Powerball to win the largest Powerball Jackpot in United States history of over $2 Billion Dollars!
