I lurk here nearly everyday but haven't posted much, due to not having allot to add to the board. That said this has been weighing on my mind for quite some time. Let me tell you how my day started..........

So I stopped at the convenience store for Tuesdays MM game. I had two numbers I choose at random and a quick pick. I have been mostly choosing my numbers since Thanksgiving when I noticed that one out of every two quick picks had consecutive numbers. I know that they do show up, but not every other drawing. Mostly it's two numbers, sometimes it three, but today's was the worst yet. You guessed it, I have four numbers in a row.

So am I just lucky that way or what? How about you all?

    It has been a while since MegaMillions had three consecutive numbers in its winning numbers.

    08/21/07 - 08 38 54 55 56    +02
    08/22/06 - 03 04 05 07 36    +16

      I did notice that the Mega Ball was 26 for three consecutive draws on 4/29-5/6.

          And then it came up again three drawings later.Bang Head I have two sets of numbers I used for the last several drawings but aside from that, I've pretty much bought just easy/quick picks. I get consecutive numbers rather often as well, one out of two, maybe three QPs seems to have sequential numbers for me. Sometimes two picks even have had the same two numbers. But I've had less repeated numbers since I started just buying each pick seperately though.

          You can't predict random.

            Normally quick pics come back within the next three days so when you get a qp try playing it back again

                Funny you asked.  I was going to start a thread on this very subject.

                I was so angry,  yesturday I decided to add  just one QP to my regular numbers (since single  QPs always win)  but these numbers came out on MM...

                42, 43, 44, 46, 51 and mega number 01.

                Boy was i upset.  Needless to say, it didn't win.

                I know the lotto picks are random but geez!

                  So it's not just me. The other thing (beside the consecutive numbers) I have notice since November is, I get more numbers that the mega number is the same as a number in the line. The last time this happened, I had four lines, three had consecutive numbers and one had the mega number and a line number, that were the same. It's enough to make you pull your hair out!

                      Two things on Quick Picks

                      I heard years ago, in NJ, that NJ does not use all the available numbers with their quick pick selection.  They infact have their state divided into sections which will not use a certain combination.  This is supposed to make the Megamillion "game" more interesting and challenging.  Remembering that the purpose of the lottery is to make money, not give it away, this made complete sense.  This way, those that use a chosen set of numbers on a ticket may use the none Quick Pick number, but are so small, they have miimal impact on the outcome.

                      Having said that, I constantly use a Quick Pick. Only I use a slip to choose Quick Pick for multiple draws, usually two - so I can buy once a week.  If I hit, I could hit twice. If I don't hit, I don't have to waste gas.  Why use a slip?  Like most of you, I found that without a slip, I started getting weird sequences,  with a slip, this hasn't happened.

                        Tonight the number 4 came up as a white ball and aMega Ball. No consecutive numbers though it did draw 4, 8, 11, 22, 30which I think is interesting. Oh and somebody won!

                          Yeah, I'll bet those two are really sorry that they used the same number for the mega ball and one of the regular numbers. What are the chances that the mega ball would have the same number as one of the 9% of the regular balls that are drawn?

                              You know, the only reason this came up was because I made a thread out of it. Yes Tubro the fat Panamanian god of money has a twisted sense of humor when it comes to me.

                              I did notice that the person in Texas who won 5 of 5 had the megaplier, and turned their $250,000 into a cool 1 million.

                              BTW I was turned onto Tubro from an episode of Married With Children.

                              (TRANSCRIPT:DESPERATELY SEEKING MISS OCTOBER)
                              Hey, look at this! "New Jersey Housewife Wins Eight Point Seven Million Dollar Lottery." And she won it after rubbing the belly of her good luck charm, Tubro, the fat Panamanian God of Money. I need something lucky to rub.
