I admit that I think of some numbers as "lucky" and others as "unlucky."  I know this is irrational, and I try not let it enter into how I play the lottery.

In my family "13," a number many people dislike and fear, feels lucky.  My Dad married my mom on the 13th, and after she died, married my stepmom on the 13th.  He had two great marriages.

I personally fear the triple sixes and don't like to see them.  I don't know why but they give me the hebbie-jebbies, and I'm not particularly religious.

What about you?  Any number superstitions?  Do these superstitions effect your lottery play?

    I always suspect my numbers are wrong. I do admit when choosing numbers I will avoid 7,11,3 and 13 but this is because these are commonly selected numbers. I had a dream a long time ago of looking at a lottery ticket with an 8 and 10 as the numbers but these numbers haven't been lucky for me for years.

      I had to vote others because I do not have any problems using any numbers in the lottery and you did not have a none button. Now when it comes to religion that would be different there is a number that I would not want stamped on my forehead nor hand!

        My son was born on the 13th so I especially like that number ! Its served well on the roulette wheel to hit recently! As to a number I avoid, its the number 6.

        I dont "fear" a number per se, I just have less of a liking towards using certain numbers when placing them on a bet slip.

        Interesting poll! thanks for posting it.

          My vote is for other although there are many numbers I like and dislike. 6 is my favorite number (my vote) because I hope that WB 6 and Mega 6 will occur in CA SLP. I like lucky numbers 1, 7, and 11 when any of those numbers come out. However, 13 not lucky for me because it seems like its fear and dislike can occur. Also, 4 is considered unlucky because the word (number) in Chinese is bad. 8 is my other favorite number because my dad, my sister, and my nephew were born on the 8th (day) in different months.

              I would have to say other because I don't have an unlucky number or a number I fear. I have a few numbers that are my favorites and that probably hurts my playing a bit since I like to play them, but other then that I play what I feel is going to win.

                The number 4 in Chinese means death. That's why I don't like #4. 1 is one of my favorite numbers if I ever win a jackpot.

                  Numbers that would have SPECIAL MEANING to me would be any 6 I picked that are drawn on the day I buy a ticket! Smiley 

                  I do have a suspicion, if you can call it that. Maybe it's a fear. Although I realize my numbers might never be picked, I have a few sets for the 6/53 Lotto I'm afraid to change. So maybe that counts. They are numbers that relate to birthdays and special dates for my family.

                  One number that "haunts" me but I'm not sure if I should play it or not is 22.  One of my first experiences in gambling was in Vegas many years ago and I was playing roulette. I bet on black, even and 22. For at least a dozen spins, odd, red or 0/00 came up. (I mean, what are the odds?) I figured that, even if 22 didn't get hit all night, at least even and black would, right? About 10 seconds after I stood up and turned to walk away I heard "number 22!"  It's just something I always remember.

                    4 was unlucky for MUSL in its late 1990s Annuity4Life. It lasted only a year and a half.

                      Two numbers I especially like are 13 and 26.  Ever since I heard these two numbers "spoken" as I was falling asleep one night about 20 years ago, these numbers have seemed special.  I played both numbers in combination with various other numbers in the state lottery the next night and both 13 and 26 hit!  I won about $140.  Too bad I couldn't have been "given" more than two numbers!  Since that time, I've played those numbers a lot.

                      Other numbers I like are 7, 9, 11, 18, 19, 21, 28, and 43.  I have no idea why except that my birthday is on the 7th.  I don't have any numbers I dislike.

                        26 is a bad number in NY. Mega Millions tickets with the wrong choice say "26 ANNUAL PAYMENTS".

                          Add 26 to my bad number list because I don't choose annual payments if I ever win a jackpot (if ever).

                              For some reason I don't like the number 14 either. Maybe because of February 14, as I've always been single.
