      Wow! I never knew experts say that! I always WIN between $4 and $28 on Birthday numbers. I once won $300 playing Powerball. But Pick 4 is MY game.

            I tried it back in 2014, but won nothing. But the first time I took Megabus to Memphis, I won $3,600 on Pick 4. The following weekend I took Megabus to St. Louis and won $1,500. From there I flew to New Jersey and won $560 and won $1,250 in Rhode Island. I left 5D alone and hit the road playing Pick 4.

              Wow! Congrats to you! I have been playing two sets of special numbers not quite that long. 11 years only. Won a 100 dollars, but was not my numbers that won. It was a quick pick i got on my ticket. But i still play them numbers every drawing. 16 bucks a month in hopes of winning. That would be a life changer! Good Luck everyone!

                Birthday numbers have won jackpots, this one and the 7 or 800 million dollar jackpot just recently.  Wow same numbers for the past 30 years that just shows how hard it is to win but yet she beat all odds.

                    I think I found a traveling companion--LOL.   Happy to hear of your wins.  Will play in Ohio this weekend as well as Indiana and Kentucky.  Still have some draws left from Detroit...only thing with their tickets it doesn't have an end date leaving the customer to figure it out.  Only state that I've played, and I've played lots of states that does this.

                      Congrats to the winner. I never play any numbers more than 2 times in a row. Am I wrong, but wouldn't it be stressful worrying about whether you played your numbers...in a hurricane, snowstorm, and other life emergencies, etc? I could not do it.

                      Je vous salue, Marie, pleine de grace.  We will rebuild!

                        My first reaction to this article was someone really got some mileage out of one play slip!

                        Green laugh

                        Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any. So many systems, so many theories, so few jackpot winners. 

                        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.

                          She looks happy. He looks like he doesn't appreciate having $133 million intruding on his day. ROFLMAO. Adorable looking couple nonetheless. 

                          As for the birthday number issue, I've never heard any "expert" say that birthday numbers don't win. Even if someone was idiotic enough to say it, who would believe them when all numbers have an equal chance of popping up.

                          I've heard people say you shouldn't play birthday numbers because chances are you'll end up sharing the lottery with a lot of people if those numbers do come up. But so what? Better a win than no win. Plus, we've now seen enough people be the sole winner of large jackpots on birthday numbers to put that bit of "advice" to bed.

                          I too would prefer Cersei Lannister to Tiny Hands. She always pays her debts, hasn't filed 6 bankruptcies and is educated enough to know Nambia isn't a country.

                            Sorry for this is not on the subject.  Did any LP see today's Price is Right?   They have the big wheel second set of spins on a popular website to watch it.  It is well worth watching IMO.

                              .

                              That's the way to do it.
                              I don't know what the 'experts' say, but though there's no guarantee, I've been alluding to the couple's exact method, in my signature below.

                              • Don't chase the numbers you play.
                              • Play only numbers you've already played, plus however many random picks.
                              • But, ALWAYS the regular numbers you play.  This will make you a winner, not a chaser.
                                         (so far, though, I've yet to win any significant lotto prize)
                              • Oh, but always know where your tickets are, as well as your ticket's deadline.
