How is this for close?  I played the following numbers for the Tuesday Mega Millions drawing.  3 26 35 38 41   and played 23 as the money ball. 


The winning numbers were 2 26 36 37 41 and the winning money ball was 22.


I had 2 numbers correct and missed EVERY other number by one digit. L


I can only think&.WHAT IF?

    The second time I had four numbers in NY Take Five 5/39, I was ONE DIGIT away from the fifth. I picked my numbers (the first 4/5 match was an automatic free play).

      Lottery Analyst,



      That was very close. When are you releasing your book? I would like to follow your strategies. How many times did you win prizes in mega millions?



      Thanks.

        Congrats on your previous win.  Exciting to be close,isn't it?  More fun to win though.  LOL

        Adi,

        I hope to have my book finished this summer and will offer a special price to fellow LotteryPost members. 

        Thanks for asking....

            I know the feeling.  Last year I matched 5 of  6 in the Ohio649Plus and missed the sixth number by one but never the less I was happy to get the $1500.  I haven't come that close since.

              Did you pick those numbers on your own or did you do a quick pick????

              Smart lottery winners form trust to claim their winnings.  They send an attorney to the lottery headquarters to claim the prize in trust, so that ONLY the name of the trust is revealed.  And they tell NO ONE, especially relatives.

              If you ever win a lottery and you are single, the only person you should ever marry is someone who was truly in love with you BEFORE you won the jackpot!
