It has to do with technical failure. Sometimes you'll get kicked out of a game because the League of Legends servers are being work on, updated, etc. Instead of getting a loss for this game, it'll say Loss Prevented.

Sometimes you'll get it anyway, even if you weren't kicked out of that game. Just take it as a free game, were the loss didn't count.

I suppose they changed it after the fact, because the stats screen counted it. Interesting!

It could be the last 4-5 games you played right before the server shuts off. I think Riot does it so if anyone who was kicked during those times played, they wouldn't get the loss. You should of got your IP and XP still of course though.

If Riot's servers decide to start having problems, and people start to dc or game start freezing because of their servers, they will decide to "Enable the Button" which means if you Lose a game, then you get a Loss Prevented. This usually only happens when the Riot Severs decide to be stop being good.

so does this count if someone on your team DCs from server failure too?
