      Playing more than one ticket per game is betting against yourself.

            My vote is developing my own system. I usually use paper balls to randomly select numbers in CA SLP and Mega Millions, but I don't usually buy these numbers because I need to save money on other stuff. Also, sometimes I use birthdays and ages from my family when it reaches $48 million or more in CA SLP, but I buy these numbers.

                  I play five lines the first line is dates in time that are important to me the next two lines are numbers I randomly pick out of the game format and the last two lines are QP's.  I am hoping that one of those lines come in this wednesday.

                    That's interesting.  Why 5 and 8?

                      I have a 104 drawings MA "season ticket" ($14 off the regular price) . I use a number that I got from a quick pick a couple years ago that seemed like a sure winner, or at least as good as any other number. I think it has won $9 this year with a couple weeks to go. All it takes is one win and I'm in the money, right? My dream is to either win the jackpot or win my $90 back.

                        How about all of the above!!!!!!!!!! (well, maybe except the divorced wives thing).  I selected wheeling, but use my "home grown" numbers, as I've had the most success with this system.  Basically from a couple of computer software programs and some "selective intuition".  I have yet to find a program that can routinely choose the correct numbers (in my state).  Hey, maybe I should be looking for mirror states?????????  Wink

                              I use a little of each, depending on my budget. This year I've had to cut back (and shouldn't play at all for a while) but I  continue to bet my regular numbers only which are the birthdays in my family plus the number 45.  I sometimes pick a random set, but I check the FL site first to check the history in case they were once drawn since no set of 6 numbers has ever been repeated.  Then there are days I'll add a couple of quickpicks.  I've never gone through a trash can (yuck!) unless it's in my own home and I can't find my keys!  Oh, I always pray for Divine Guidance too!  It sounds sort of like this "Please, please, please, please, please let me win tonight! Blue Angel 

                               But as Jim Morrison put it:  "You cannot petition the Lord with prayer!"
