I remember,i saw lottery news on my Illinois lottery website,about a guy who played same numbers for 3 years and finally won over 9 millions dollars.I am planning to do the same soon.I think its better this way,and i can win more,or even hit the jackpot,then playing random numbers everyday.What you guys think?Does anyone play same numbers?

    With games that are in my home state like Powerball, Wild Card 2 and Hot Lotto, I tend to play different sets of numbers. But I have a subscription to Massachusetts Mass Cash game and with that game I have to play the same set of numbers each drawing. So I do both.

          On the Illinois Lottery website you can sign up to get results for the game of your choice mailed to you, I get them for Little Lotto (There are examples in the Pick 5 forum, Illinois Little Lotto Results 2009).

          (I only post the jackpot winner, but it gives you all prize payouts).

          In over three years of getting these, I think I've seen two subscription winners (people who by tickets for up to a year - same numbers).

          This doesn't mean that other people are playing the same numbers drawing by drawing or on multi-play.

          Personally, when I think about playing the same numbers that saying about doinng the same thing over and over and expecting different results is a form of insanity comes to mind.

          Sure, that can be said for playing lotto, too, but....

          Good Luck whichever way you choose!

          Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

          Lep

          There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                I think it's a fine idea to have a signature set of numbers or combination you play in every draw.  However, I would suggest you apply the usual group filters when making it so you don't have any factor in there that only comes up once in a hundred draws or worse.   BobP

                  I do that but in reverse by playing combinations that have never hit.  That way I has the same advantage of someone who has played those numbers for years and not won every time I play and I only played them once.

                    i re-did my numbers many years ago bob, about 6 months after i started reading rec.gambling.lottery and yours and everyones advice sank in, the main filter i use is to make sure i hit every number now for as little possible bet. i know i should mix that up a bit, but ehh im a 50/50  type of guy. either i win or i dont. the only game i try hard for is the soccer pools, and i still can t hit their biased draws.

                      I have played Supercash the same set of numbers for over 20 years  everyday. Won 500.00 once and a few 25.00. To me it is a big loser. But know after that long have to stick with them. Probally all 6 would come up if I dropped them.

                        I play Massachusetts lottery games by subscriptions, I haven't won any big prizes yet, but I have won a few small prizes. I am hoping that one day I will hit it big!

                          I actually purposely do NOT play the same numbers over and over again.

                          The reason? I don't want to choose to start new numbers and then see my original numbers winning "the Big One". I don't think I could handle that.

                          I know I'll get shot down for this...but usually I just do a quick pick. I figure, if I'm meant to win, I'll win. Sort of, "it's out of my hands" and "you can't win if you don't play" mentalities combined.

                          However, after being on this site for a while, I did try my hand at picking the numbers for a Powerball once, dependant on what the popular numbers were. I might start doing that more often and try some of the "wheels" and so forth to get better odds. This way, my odds might be better and I'll still be using my two mentalities.

                          :-D

                            Hi everyone!    I voted no on this one because if there's one thing I've learned it's NOT to become attached to numbers. As I mentioned in another thread I managed to hit 5 out of 6 numbers  on Ca Lotto  LOL with a QP! !  This was only my 3rd time purchasing a ticket and I didn't know anything about patterns, odds etc. Anyway the winning numbers weren't numbers I would have picked  had I played my birthday, favorite number, license plate etc. Now..... looking at past draws I managed to hit 4 out of 5 numbers on Little Lotto. Again these weren't numbers I would have picked but numbers based on what I saw from previous draws. Recently out of curiosity I looked at 30 consecutive draws for Little Lotto to see if I would have won playing a line of my kids and my birthdays. Had I played ALL 30 days I would have won 2 dollars. And LOL my birthday didn't even hit one time in those 30 days.
