So close yet so far!

On yesterday’s show we were talking about the lottery and would you be angry if you hit 5 of the 6 powerball numbers and missed out on the jackpot… Then I mentioned the time when I had 4 out of 5 numbers on the Fantasy 5 and won $555.00, which was back just a few months ago, and trust me, I was excited… for about a minute…

Listen to the short clip of why I was only excited for a minute “Rich talks about winning the lottery”

Now fast forward to tonite, I took my tickets from last night and went to Publix to check them… Can you see where this is going?

She checks my powerball tickets and nothing, then she pops in the one Fantasy 5 ticket I bought and I hear that sound the lottery machine makes when it’s a winner, I hear it kinda often actually but I just win a free ticket… Holy crap the machine tells me I won $125.50!!! I am excited and so is the girl behind the counter and the woman behind me online and the man next to her, it was pretty cool… for a moment anyway…

The store manager walks over to see what the mini commotion is and the clerk say’s to the manager he won a big one… the manager looks at the machine and says wow, if you had just one more number you would have hit the jackpot for almost $86,000… FML…

Here’s the winning ticket and the cash I walked out with…
