I don't know about anyone else here, but when I play I have a few superstitions. I only buy my tickets from a certain chain of conveinence stores and I refuse to listen to two specific songs. If at any point these songs should come on, I won't even bother to play. Same with the conveinence chain. Anyone else?

      I can't play Keno on a cluttered table.

      Some people look at me kind of crazy when I come into the store and start cleaning.

              I never  want  the  clerk  to    verbaly  repeat  the  number  I  write  down ...nor  stare  at  it

              I  don't  like  commotion  over  the  numbers ....." the  amount  or  mistakes  the  clerk  makes  "

              all  these  signs  are  indicators  the  numbers  will  not  come  out  and  never  let  people  come  up  or  stand  behind  me !~

                 I buy only from "lucky" stores.  (Those that have sold winning tickets).  Also, I buy from "lucky" clerks.  (Those that have sold me winning tickets in the past).  I avoid clerks that have never sold me any winning ticket.  Ponder

                  Can it be called a superstition if it's transient?

                  I used to rub my tickets on the kitty's head but stopped after a few months of it not working.  Oh, and the vicious scratches all over my arms sped up that process.  I used to get a "feeling" I should go buy a ticket right now, or a "feeling" I should go to a certain store.  Those feelings never panned out so I seldom give in to them these days.  I used to chant the Prayer of Jabez on the trip to and from buying the tickets.  Stopped that after a few years. 

                  The only thing I still do is pick up "lucky" pennies in the parking lot of my local lottery retailer if they're face up. Then I put my tickets under the pile of "lucky" pennies I've been collecting for a few years.  So I guess that one is a true superstition.

                    If  my  cat  scratched  me  one  time  in  any  manner  ........it  would  be  history or  no  longer  in  this  world ;;

                      sounds  like  to  me  its  bad  luck  altogether  for  you;
