I don't know why but "teh" seems to be the most common typing mistake of all.  I almost have to correct myself of doing that evertime I post.

To keep it lottery related, say you are filling out a betslip and you make a mistake.  Do you void it or keep it and play the correct number in the next box? 

Me, I keep it and play the correct sequence in the next box.  I guess i'm superstitious about that.

    If I make a mistake filling out my betslips I don't play at all that day. I figure it's my inner voice trying to tell me something. So far it's always been right. lol

      Depends...if my inner intuition doesn't rev up and say "that won't win" then I don't play it.  Yeah, my intuition works a bit weird...I know u have heard of the people who said they either had a dream or "saw" the numbers they should play, but my experience has been that as I am looking over a playslip or even just thinking about a combo of numbers to play for lotto or the mega jackpot games, sometimes when I think of a combo and my intuition says "no that doesn't have a chance of winning" I have made the mistake of not noting that and instead play some different combo...wouldn't you know that more often than not, those "negative intuition" numbers just happen to roll for that drawing!

      The guy who won the presidency in 2008 really won the lottery...he is now millions richer, travels in first class style, and even has a staff that would be the envy of the richest Powerball winner (she has a staff of 2).

          That tells me that since the "e" is the 5th letter of the alphabet, that a 5 may be  featured in the lottery strongly very soon. For example 55x, 555, 5555.

            If I planned on playing all 5 or 10 boards on a bet slip and made a mistake, I would rather make out a new slip correctly and have all my combinations on one ticket than use an extra slip and have my combinations on two tickets.

            I fill in and check my bet slips at home before going to buy my tickets.  If I discover a mistake that I've missed while buying my tickets I void that board or add a random mark to make it run and adjust my data file when I get back home and forget about it.

              I agree with RJOh.  If I'm going through the hassle of filling out a bunch of cards, I definitely make them exactly as intended, and if I make a mistake I just grit my teeth and start a new one.

              However, as far as PURCHASING tickets is concerned, I have been known to buy mistakes.  They haven't been very lucky though...

              I hear 'ya on teh the typing mistake, but mine is you/your.  I am constantly typing stuff like, "that is you choice."  I'm sure it's because I'm trying to do twelve things at once, and my mind is already on to the next word.

                  As you can tell from a lot of my typos I'm dyslexic (never realized how much 'til the internet).

                  But that's OK, maybe some dya I'll qualify to become a member of NAMES - that's the dyslexia branch of MENSA!

                  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.

                    hahaha Coin Toss! Reminds me of my grandma- she'd say I got me a case of perplexia today! I'd go "Huh?" and she would say "I see you got it too!"

                    As to betslips, it depends how big the jackpot is. If I worked the numbers and its an error when I go to fill it out, I'll toss it. Otherwise I premarily play qp's and figure if I cant fill out that little dot then I shouldnt play!

                      When I fill playslips - I mark void and forget about the mistake.

                      When I ask for tickets out loud... and the cashier makes mistake, I buy both.

                          Since the "h" was involved as well. That is the 8th letter in the alphabet. So... I'm sure we will see something from the following very soon boxed or straight in any state 88x, 888, 8888.

                          Or...

                          Perhaps a merger of the 5,8.
