Thanks everyone for your feedback. I know it sounds crazy, but after spending over $2,000 on just these 2 groups of 6 numbers, I'm really afraid to change so maybe I shouldn't be looking at the odds or studying past picks unless I want to add another set or 2. I never list my actual numbers (superstitious) but they're very similar.... like 3-8-10-12-19-27 and 3-8-12-19-27-51.  The first set I played when the game was 6/49 and changed just one of the numbers when it became a 6/53 game. Then the state started the twice a week draws so I went from spending $2 to $4 (plus 2 or 3 QPs sometimes) but I also play FL Mega on Tues/Fri. I only use QPs for Mega so I don't put myself into this rut again. I often want to play the multi-state games like Powerball and Mega Millions, but maybe it's a good thing we don't have them in FL or I'd be spending even more than I already do. I guess, besides the luck of the draw, it also comes down to your emotional makeup. Many people could bet a number for several years and stop, and if it got picked, just scream loudly & shrug it off as bad luck. I would end up in a psyche ward!

    I look at draw history for the odds of probability.
