Since we're all players here and are aware of numbers, can you ignore numbers?

I mean like numbers you see repeated as the day goes on, that kind of thing.

When you see or hear a number do you think that might be a good Pick 3 or Pick 4, or you'll use it in the next jackpot game drawing?

And are lottery players more aware of numbers?

What do you say? 

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.

    Every set of numbers I see makes me more aware.  They all have some sort of  significance to them.  Thinking of....  I love seeing different combinations.

      I never ASSOCIATE outside numbers with the lottery..ie..telphone numbers..car tags..birthdays...I strictly use the numbers in the state that I am working...

        I can rule out about 15 numbers in every PB drawing, and that list of 15 changes with every drawing, and it's pretty accurate - once every five or six drawings one of the fifteen numbers might hit, but more often than not, none of them hit.

        Problem is, that still leaves 40 to choose from...

          I honestly don't let them have a major effect on my life.  If anyone here has named his/her dog QuickPick or his/her child Little Lotto, then I think that would indicate a problem.

          Honey, I just lost 5 pounds and I now weigh 123.

          OMG!  I have to run out to the store and play 1235.  Is there still time?

          Dad, I got a 720 on my English SAT and 684 on my math SAT. 

          That's great son. Can we talk about it when I get back? I need to play a couple of lottery tickets.

          or even worse...

          Doctor:  Mr. Jones, I have bad news.  I'll come right out and tell you.  You have 6 months to live.

          6 months? Feb/29 + Mar/31 + Apr/30 + May/31 + June/30 + July 31.  Excuse me, Doc.  Hold that thought.  I need to run out and play 182.
