            Didn't you all see the part where he said "Not true"?

            Anyway, I fail to see how Sleepingdogslie "ALMOST" got it right? He got 2 numbers and the rest weren't even close.

            Even I had 2 numbers right on my ticket last night...

              I was pretty close too:

              Every one of the numbers on my 5 tickets was in the ball drum from which the numbers were drawn.  (Sleepingdog - you'll have to excuse my sarcastic sense of humor!)

                Sleepingdog does give the word "close" a pretty wide definition!!!!

                      something similar happened to me about a month ago. Of by two and had the first digit matching.

                        Last year in Ohio649P, I missed matching all 6 digits for the jackpot by missing one digit by 2.  I matched 5 of the 6 which paid $1500.  That is what I call close, simply having 6 numbers that are on the playing cards is expected since the card is rejected if you don't mark 6  numbers.

                            Sleepingdogslie,

                            You are probably right, but I hope not.  Last night, out of $20 worth of tickets in Powerball I matched 2+PB for $7, but I didn't mention it, because I didn't think it was worth mention when I checked to see how many tickets did better.  I hope the next time you start a post titled "ALMOST had it right" , it will be a post where you matched 5 for $175K and missed the jackpot by just coming close to picking the right PowerBall. Good luck to you.

                            RJOh

                              maybe after they list the 200,000 plus people that won $3 they can list the 10 million people that almost got it right!!! good luck to you, also.
