Which most accurately describes you when you play your tickets, when you change dollars into tickets?
Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.
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.

I always think "Why can't I just get a taste?" before I play. The more I play, especially when I add a QP or 2, I usually think, "This is stupid, but it might just happen." Sometimes I think, "What a waste. I should buy a candy bar instead." Then I see the guy in front of me spending $4 for a pack of carcinogens. Then I think, "We all have stupid habits that cost a few bucks. At least this one won't kill me."

I have a much better chance to win than most people, but that said, I feel my chances are about 1 in 50,000, so of course it's going to take some kind of absence of bad luck to win.
Also: you can't win if you don't play.

It came to me in a dream. Not only winning just one jackpot, but at least two or three. One was a fixed/progressive jackpot like WI Supercash or Badger 5. Another, in a different dream, was something like Powerball or Mega Millions and at least 50 million cash value or more. Also winning multiple times in the same drawing on Pick 3 or Pick 4 in a different dream. Winning, from the dream perspective anyway, is the most wonderful feeling I could have ever had. The expectation is: my dreams do happen in reality as some point.

I chose other, my expectation is that I'll maybe get a small return of the money I spent (less than I spent 10%-20%) or that may get a good set, 4 of 5, 4 of 6, 5 of 6 and play free for a couple of weeks. I have hit these before but not the 5/5 or 6/6 grand prizes. To hit 5/5 or 6/6 is an unreasonable expectation, a fluke, a stroke of luck, a lightning strike that leaves a fulgurite full of cash in my checking account.
Fulgurites (from the Latin fulgur meaning thunderbolt) are natural hollow carrot-shaped glass tubes formed in quartzose sand or soil by lightning strikes. In the right kind of sand the extreme heat generated will form silica glass shapes that trace the path of the lightning. The structures are also known as Petrified Lightning.
Fulgurites are a very rare phenomenon. A very large one was found in South Amboy, New Jersey. This was roughly nine feet long with a diameter of three inches near the surface of the ground, and tapered to roughly three sixteenths of an inch in diameter at the deepest point recovered. As is often the case due to the fragile nature of fulgurites, scientists were unable to extract it in one piece and the largest recovered fragment was a mere six inches long.
