# What a Coincidence.

Published:

Last Edited: December 9, 2005, 7:39 pm

I was talking to a woman today in the store about the lottery. We exchanged strategies and speculated on upcoming numbers. I showed her the "123 Workout" that I learned here on Lottery Post. Miswiz777 uses it for Pick 4, but it also works on Pick 3. In short, what you do is add "123" to the number from the last drawing to get some possible winning numbers for upcoming drawings.

The thing to remember is that you don't carry over the "1" from numbers that add up to "10" or greater.

On the tenth time, you will end up with the numbers you started with.

So for example, today's Virginia Midday Pick 3 number was 055.

055 + 123 = 178
178 + 123 = 291
291 + 123 = 314
314 + 123 = 437
437 + 123 = 550
550 + 123 = 673
673 + 123 = 796
796 + 123 = 819
819 + 123 = 932
932 + 123 = 055 <- You end up where you started.

The woman, then, showed me her strategy. Again, I used today's Virginia Midday Pick 3 number, 055.

Using a Tic-Tac-Toe layout, you take 055 and fill the chart in diagonally.

 0 5 5

Then, starting from the top row and going left-to-right, you fill in the empty gaps with 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5.

 0 0 1 2 5 3 4 5 5

So now, I can pull out these seven combinations from above:

001, 253, 455, 024, 055, 135 and 154.

Somehow we ended up talking about 345. I mentioned that I heard that it follows 666, which came out last Friday. Then guess what! I caught a glimpse of a small advertisement on the side of the lottery machine. It says "What's your favorite number?" and has pictures of the lottery balls as characters with a face, arms, and legs. There were three characters and they were numbered 3, 4, and 5! I was like, "Wow! Look! There it is. That 345." It was weird, but then it got even more strange! This whole time we were by ourselves because nobody else was playing any numbers. Then, another woman came into the store and she walked over to where we were standing. The woman told us that some numbers to watch for are 769, 751, and 345! I was like, "We were just talking about 345!" What a coincidence. I told them that it hasn't been drawn since 2004 and I repeated that I heard that it has the tendency to follow the triple 6's.

Has that ever happened to you? When you feel really good about a particular number and then a complete stranger mentions the number, telling you to be on the look-out for it...I guess it shows that you are doing something right!

345, 769, and 751 are numbers that I used to play before today because I know for a fact that they are overdue for Virginia. Then, I gave up on them. It's really hard to stick with numbers, especially when you are exposed to all the predictions here on Lottery Post. Well, you know what? I'm not taking any chances and I'm going to add those numbers to my "MUST PLAY" list.

How many times has this happened to you? You stop playing a certain number, and then BAM! It comes right out!

This happened to me with the 666 that I mentioned above. Back in August, I played 666 because I felt really good about it. On that same day that I played, the number drawn was 555. Being THAT close, you can imagine how I felt. Well, afterwards, I decided that I would stick with the 666.

I stopped playing 666 at the end of last month because I guess you could say, I lost hope in that number. And, a couple weeks later, it came out!!!

666 on December 2, 2005. I felt even worse than I felt back in August.

So...

Everyone, please don't lose hope in your numbers! I'm tired of missing out because of impatience.

DEFINITELY DO NOT stop playing your favorite number(s) if:

1. The number is overdue.
2. You have that "gut" feeling about it.
3. You have done your homework/research.

Think about it. As members of the Lottery Post community, we have an advantage over lottery players who just take a playslip and start bubbling in. Just by investing our time studying the numbers and narrowing down our selection of combinations, we have increased the chances of winning.

Even if you can only play your favorite number 50¢ Any Order. When you win, you can use your winnings to play harder on your other favorites.

Good Luck Everyone...Everywhere!
