We did *NOT* win our lottery game! Haha… though we did come away with $5.00 ;) Which is funny because BOTH of the winning lottery tickets we had were because of YOUR errors! Haha, way to pay attention.
Here were the lucky Mega Millions numbers for our drawing: 24, 25, 45, 47, 53 and 42 (Mega Ball).
And here were the two that came closest to winning – BOTH with errors!
- The first winner ($3.00) was Kelly A‘s who emailed me the numbers of 3, 12, 24, 26, 37, 52. All fine to the naked eye, but that last one (#52) was TOO HIGH for the Mega Ball. So I changed it to 42, which the Mega Ball ended up being ;) So there was $2.00 of the $3.00 right there, and then we got an extra $1.00 for getting another right (#24) which Kelly picked — good job ;)
- Then we had another similar issue which netted us $2.00. Only this time I had to wade through 7 numbers instead of 6! Haha… it was when we dropped the 7th number that I realized the 6th as too high, yet again, for the Mega Ball. So I swapped it out w/ the next one over (#54) and bam — we hit the Mega Ball again ;) So you too won something, Edward Antrobus, a whole $1.00!
This was surely worth the $47+ I spent running all of y’all’s numbers, and the 2 hours it took for me to fill in all those circles too (!!!), haha… Who needed $39 Mil anyways? So now the question becomes — would you two like me to re-invest your money for another shot? Or shall I send you your pennies in the mail? Lemme know and we’ll make it happen… crazy winners ;)
