Just curious i have been playing 1211 for awhile now over 2 years when do you call it quits and pick a new number, i really thought it was going to come out in May,

I usually give up on a number the day before it falls.

    What?Coin Toss,

     Not trying to be smartass.....I'm just curious, but what in the world is a "Horsehoes"What?

    Wow! You must be very very young! Horshoes is a game wherein a you actually take a horshoe and and try to toss it around a small metal pole which sticks out of the ground.  And even if the horseshoe does not go completely around the pole but comes close then that worth points too.  So...thus the phrase "this isn't horseshoes" makes a lot of sense. Coming close to a number aint' worth spit.

      Good eye! Ooops!

       See, the roulette ball had "eyes", too. And no heart! 

      We had a bartender in one of our casinos nicknamed "Lenny the Loser". His bad luck was increidble. If he bet 4, 5, 9, 10 the dice would roll 6, 8, 7 out. If he bet the 6 and 8, the rolls would be 4, 5, 9, 10, 7 out.  

      Whenever someone was rolling a "monster" the shift boss used to page Lenny to the dice pit and have him just walk by and touch the table - to get a 7 out! 

      When it was football season and people would talk about whothey had bets on and someone would name a team, someone else would say, "Oh no, that's who Lenny bet."

      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.

        About 4 years ago, I was playing the last 4 digits of my cell phone number, which I no longer have. It was 8472.

        I played it for about 2 weeks straight, and finally decided to stop. Of course it hit straight about 3 days later. Needless to say I was fuming.

        Okay, I hear these stories all the time and know they're true, especially with the pick-3 and pick-4 games. I know a woman who changed her Lotto number when the jackpot was $15 million.  So it does happen, even if it's extremely rare.  How would we know?  They don't publish a list of people who stopped playing a personal number!  LOL  Still, imagine if you were fuming over a $500 or $5,000 "loss" how you'd react if you bet the same 6 numbers for many years and then stopped & they were drawn the next week or even the next month.  Again, I know it's silly. So please - nobody needs to tell me that!

            Stick with your number. I've been playing 478 for the last 6 months every night as my one "straight" pick. I quit playing it on 03/23/07 and on 03/25/07 Oklahoma drew 4-7-8............Mad

                That reminds me of the story of a man who always bought the same numbers, but one st. Valentine´s Day, he chose to buy a card for his wife instead of his usual lottery ticket, because he couldnt afford both.  And that same day, his numbers were drawn.

                 

                I guess it is only an urban legend because the moral

                of the story is that he was already a rich man because he had true love. 

                 

                A story that is actually true is the one about a man who killed himself because he mistakenly believed his  numbers for the Britain´s National Lottery had come up the one week he didnt play them.

                That was in April 1995

                  Mike, it's funny you mentioned 486.....I've been eyeballing the series 482 through 487 as my next potential target, as none of those have ever been called in Oklahoma...

                    Funny, today the number that I gave up was 748.

                    This number wasn't included in my predictions of today numbers.

                    Probably your combinations would be a winning combination for some state.

                    I would risk something like  748 or even 487. Not sure about the precision of the numbers. Since I need more lessons of geographic, I could not be much helpful in your area.

                    If you wanted to make a simulation it is possible to include the sequences in all states. Now for a winner ticket ...

                        There's a great movie about "Lennys" called THE COOLER, it's out on DVD.

                        This happens to me alot at casino, I'll be doing great and then go way down. When I get up to move somewhere else I'll notice a "Lenny" i.e. COOLER was sitting behind me just watching me, grrrrr. The casinos hire them for this purpose to take your luck away!!! LOL
