This is for anything from Pick 5, Pick 6 to PB and MM...

Let's say you track numbers and play a system of sorts...

Your system calls for a certain set of numbers, but when you plug those numbers into a lottery site for the game you plan on playing them for, and you see that set of numbers has hit once.

Since it's so rae for an entire set of numbers to repeat - if ever- would you still play them or "go back to the drawing board"? 

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.

    It would depend on how far back the 'repeat' was.

      I have a program that checks how many times up to 16 numbers has hit in 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5 times together. If one of the combinations created by a 16 number wheel has hit, I could put them into another order.

      Since 5757 drawings only represents 1% of all the combinations, it's highly unlikely that any 5/39 pick-5s had a repeat.

         Hey Coin, 

        I try not to be suspicious of the lottery  but I track my  Super Lotto closely.  I even do it for the Mega Millions even though I dont play it, my husband does.  ( he does random  and birthday stuff anyway)  but i thought this was  odd.  check it out it is from Mega Millions -Or am I just paranoid?

        1/15/2008 21-30-44-42-50 mega 42

        This pattern made me a bit nevous  I noticed it immediately.

          I won't play the same pattern even though it follows my system.  When I was checking on the past winners to verify that my system is still somewhat accurate,   I noticed that  all 5  numbers have already come up on one of my lines-only the mega number was different.  You're right-chances are it won't come up again-at least not in my life time.So i skipped that particular set. But I do play alot of repeat 3s and 4s.  So far I have been hitting at least $10 every week-nothing larger so far.  I know its not much; but it makes me think that I am finally playing smarter than the guessing game. I used to play for months without winning anything.  When I first found this site, someone's tag line was "don't play more play smarter"  I found a way to do just that.

            No you're not paranoid.  I've noticed that for some time now. 

            And yes, I would definitley play the numbers even though they came out on another game.  Even if they have come out exactly like you played them before in the game you are playing now, your chances are good that they will get you some money.  No big wins, but something like 3+0 and down.  Thing is, if you feel strongly about those numbers, play them.

              Thanks Spy.  I will keep it in mind.  I'm up to 15 lines, which is $30 per week.  Its alot of money  I know, but  since I get  at least $10 of that back each time, I dont feel so bad. I know at least one of those lines will hit someday. 

               

              Besides I dont smoke, drink, party or do drugs.  What else am I going to spend money on?  heehhahahhehhehehahah-LOL!

                  What is the pattern? Just curious cause I see the repeats, but are you saying there is an underlying pattern?  Here they are in order:

                  0 001121    21-30-42-44-50    06  01/15    T

                      011120     12-22-33-43-44    15  01/18    F

                      022100    12-15-22-25-33    02  01/22    T

                      111101    01-12-22-38-56    22  01/25    F

                      101120    08-23-39-40-42    24  01/29   

                     

                     It looks like the pattern ended 01/29.

                      As you know, I got 4/5 a couple of weeks ago, and I've continued to play my numbers.  I'm getting nothing - not even a free ticket, which I usually got once in a while.   

                      I doubt if I would ever play a 5 or 6 number combination that was picked.  However, if the lottery is truly random, then it shouldn't matter at all.  Still, I would start over with a different set of numbers.  I won't answer "system" because I don't think there is one.

                        That's a pattern, but not much of one.

                        On the flip-side, I've made choices based on a set of certain numbers that no way in hell would hit - and they have.

                        I don't mean a full set of 5 numbers, I mean just 2 of the 5 white balls in PB.

                        Back to the original question: I believe a set of numbers has repeated (not in-a-row) just once in Powerball.

                        BUT, if your calculations say it's 'due', I'd play it.

                        Reason being, you have developed your charts, they are telling you something, don't deviate from it, or you can just admit your theory is useless.

                        On the other hand, the chances of this hitting are incredibly long, I doubt I would play it, BUT, it's only $1.00.

                        If it hits and you didn't play it, you won't feel good.

                        If you play it and it doesn't hit, just stack it up with the rest of your losing tickets like the rest of us.

                          In my state, the payout of a 4/5 match on our pick 5 pays enough to be worth it.
                          In IL, you need to either hit 5/5 or stay at home.

                            The 4/5 in Fantasy 5 often pays over $100.  I only got $72.50 but even $10 is better than nothing.  It means you can buy more tickets without dipping into your "lottery budget" if you have one.
