You've won a few bucks on a numbers game and when you gp to cash the ticket the clerk asks if you just want to play more tickets.

What's your best response?

(Let's face it, we all play something back, this is for fun).

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.

    I voted "Only if you guarantee a winner" though I've never had that happen. I always get a feeling that the person isn't thinking very highly of me for "wasting money" on a lottery ticket. Of course those same people would be kissing my backside if I did win and asking about their cut since they sold me the ticket. I'd just tell them to take it up with their boss since the store would receive a nice bonus for selling it from the state.

    You can't predict random.

      I would say:  "the voices say no, not today". Red Devil

                  "Klaatu barada nikto" originates from the Cold War-era science fiction film The Day the Earth Stood Still (1951). In the film, the phrase, "Klaatu barada nikto," was used by Helen Benson (Patricia Neal) to stop the robot Gort from destroying the Earth

                    And a while after that, Klaatu barada nikto was useed in an episode of Sgt. Bilko (Phil Silvers) that parodied the $64,000 Challenge to mean "Tasty corn chips taste good".

                    Ridzik and Doberman were contestants and Bilko had it set up to send them the answers with a type of walkie talkie while they were in the contestant's booth. It was hilarious.
