    I like this Poll LottoMike.

    I've often changed a number and, darn if it doesn't come out right after I've dropped it. I know that this happens to many people because, every time that I mention it to my friends and co-workers, they reciprocate the same sentaments.

    I could stick with a set of numbers for weeks, but as soon as I drop one..........BINGO

          Usually I play some small systems (totally 48 lines) with the same numbers all the time on the Pick-6 lottery while I play 20 lines of quick picks on the Pick-7 lottery each week. Don't use any lottery prediction software at the moment.

            I Agree!  One of the toughest things is trying to figure out when a combo is not going to come in and you're wasting your time. When backtesting a system that's what skews you, because you have all the drawings and you know if it came in or not. It's a real conundrum.

              I assume we're talking jackpot games.

              I've had several people tell me they have ben playing 'their numbers' for years.

               What?

              Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

              Lep

              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've been playing "my numbers" for 14 years now.  When the PowerBall goes over 100 million I usually get a quick pick or two also, which I never replay.

                  What game are you talking about, Mike?  I use Quick Picks if I play anything but Lotto so I don't cry "I played that just a few days ago!!"  As I've written (too many times) before, I've been playing the same numbers for years, so I'm nervous about switching because of the horror stories I've read.  Even 5/6 (about $5K average) would be a treat to win, although the $10M jackpot would be even nicer.

                  No lectures from the peanut gallery, please.  I realize what I'm doing sounds silly, but so is using a license plate from a passing car, a register receipt or numbers from a dream.

                    Justxploring...my wife plays the same 10 sets of numbers every game (Win4Life) and wins enough to pay for the next set she is planning on playing. Me, I change and change and win nothing. Perhaps there is something to staying with the same set. That group in Calif. sure did do well after playing the same set of numbers for 10 years.

                    As for Pick3/4, I have pretty much given up on those games.

                      I wish I could say that I've won enough to pay for my tickets.  The game I am referring to has 1:23M odds (6/53 Lotto) so the most I've won is $75 getting 4/6.  I think I've won about $300 in over a decade, although I've played other games. Who knows?  Maybe I've won millions but remain clueless because my numbers were drawn during one of those pre-tests!

                          Wow, Mike!  You seem to win a lot.  Do you play several different games and buy lots of tickets or are you just lucky?

                            Well, perhaps sometimes we are meant to see a license plate number, or when you get a palindromic total at the check out it's a signal to play it!

                            Numbers you dream of have to be played - no such thing as coincidence. Of course, maybe you dream of lets say 624, and you play it for the Pick 3, but the trifeacta at the race track that day was 624, but it's still a message delivered via a dream. Unless you're an accountant or something similar and number dreams are work related, or nightmares!

                              Or it means something will happen to you at exactly 6:24
