        OK, does it have to be ten years though?

        How about one or two?

            Speaking strictly from a New York Take5 perspective, I would not play a set of numbers that once won a JP.

            Since Take5 began back in the early 1990's, there have been approximately 5,100 drawings.  According to The NY Lottery, there has never been a duplicate set of JP winning numbers drawn.  With 575,757 possible combinations of five numbers, and less than 10 percent of those combo's having been drawn, IMHO I'm better off not playing a set of numbers that once won a JP.  My thinking is the JP winning combo will most likely come from that pool of more than 570,000 combo's that have never been drawn, and I believe that will probably happen for quite a while yet. 

            However, I might have actually done it!  It's certainly possible that I bought a QP that previously produced a set of JP winning numbers, and because I dont check to see if they did, I never knew they once won a JP! For me personally, that's another reason why I dont like to buy QP's. But occasionally, I still buy 'em anyway!!! With more than 16 million residents in NY state, I'm sure somebody somewhere in New York has purchased a QP that was once a JP winner. I wonder how many times that has happened. Probably more times than anyone would think it would. 

            If I win a Free Play by having 2 numbers, I dont have a choice, because a Free Play is in reality a free QP.  In NY, a player can not pick his/her own numbers after winning a Free Play.

            Winning a Jackpot - unlikely but POSSIBLE!

              FYI, Ohio Rolling Cash5 (5/39) has had 2439 drawings since 10/04/04 and only six combinations repeated.  That means 6 times of 2439, not playing a combination that had already won might have been a bad idea.

                  If a set of numbers has proven successful once, why not twice?

                    I said no because I wouldn't consciously select them. If I got it in a QP, or if I selected them and then later did a search and found they were previously drawn, I wouldn't worry about it, though. I'd just hope for lightening to strike twice. The odds "reset" for each drawing, so it has the same chance of hitting as any other number combo.

                      I probably did play some combos that won a jackpot when I was wheeling numbers playing Ohio's RC5, but had I taken the combo out, it could affect the win guarantee. By changing the order I placed the numbers into the wheel could have created other combos that had won before. The reason I was playing a "pacific" LOL group of numbers was because they were consistently matching 2 and 3 numbers with occasional 4 number matches.

                      In all games past winning combos will eventually be drawn so throwing out a combo because it has might cost someone a jackpot or a 4 number match.

                        It depends. Let me explain. Sometimes past winning numbers are great because if you take them, start doing some workouts (I'm talking lottery math) than you'll see some good combinations as an outcome. For example, let's consider Take 5's (NY) last 2 draws: 

                         

                        Dec 21: 9. 14. 17. 32. 34 

                         

                        Dec 20: 1. 3. 7. 9. 35 

                         

                        First add them all up for a sum: 9+14+17+32+34= 106 ----- 1+3+7+9+35= 55 

                         

                        Now, 106-55= 51 and 106+55=161 

                         

                        Take 161-51=110 

                         

                        We have an option now to play combinations that add up to 110. Factor in 1 up 1 down system, then try 111 or 109. Finally look for similar past winning numbers that come close to these sums. So in conclusion, I may have not answered the question correctly but playing past winning numbers with a twist or tweak can help!!!!

                          mathmatically , ea draw is a new test and any set of numbers is as likely as any other set of numbers.

                          ie past draws have no affect on future draws. still its hard to play last weeks numbers again this week.
