Agree, all those QPs prove that it's random and not planned. Every Florida Lotto jackpot in the past several months, including single winners of $46M and $50M, has been won with a QP. So if anyone on the board knows of a way to wipe numbers out my memory so I can't remember my personal sets in case they ever come up, I'd appreciate it.  I forget where I parked my car, what I went to the grocery store for and even my telephone number, but I can't block out these darn numbers!  I'd sure like to start buying quickpicks without adding more tickets, but my timing in life stinks, so the day I stop my numbers will surely be picked.

justxploring:

Why don't you try playing different numbers than your personal sets on lesser paying games.  This way maybe you can wean yourself from the normal sets and at the same time minimize at least in your mind the shock should the number or numbers hit.

I know this is tough sometimes because of all the stories about not playing what you should have and the number hit.  But I submit that there are thousands of times personal numbers are not played and those numbers never hit and will never hit.  I believe its all relative.  I guess if we all could have, should have, maybe, might we would all be millionaires.

    This is the point for me as well Bradly_60, that both large lotteries are being hit constantly at the same time is more than a notion.  It makes you take notice.  I am not however putting forth a conspiracy theory.  Enough of those are out there.  I just want to hear how others view these occurences.

    it would depend on if the numbers were all quick picks or all self-picks. what's the word?

      Over due

      if those states are overdue, than what about states like Arizona?  or are some states just assumed to never be 'hot'?

        To me, the difference between $15M and $204M is I would buy more tickets when jackpots reach the levels of giant piggy bank. I often handpick numbers when jackpots are under $20M, but I buy quick pick now. I just let the numbers choose me because I am tired of coming up with some good numbers and dreaming that I would hit the jackpot. A combine of handpick and quick pick would be fun for me now.

         

        CA SuperLotto Plus is growing. I hope the pig will mature at $100M before someone bring it home.  I have the dream in my wallet now. Luck, let's my dream be reality.

            Prior to these jackpot winners, it's been a long dry spell for having jackpot winners in a row. PB had three straight jackpot winners after a string of 100+ million jackpots. MM has won in 3 of their last 5. In fact, CA SLP has been in a dry spell lately because they have fewer jackpot winners this year.
