I'm sure most of us have done it.Whether the number came in later that week...that night  or mid month.BAM that one that has been in your head comes in str8 even though you were commited to other #'s financially and you didn't think it fit into the scheme of things.Happened to me countless times.Would love to know where everyone stands with the 'syndrome'

    There have been times that I had a number in my mind to play, but I didn't end up playing it and it has come out. It's probably because I don't play the Pick 3 here that often and when I get numbers it's more for fun.

      I checked "not too often" because there was no "just once or twice" choice.   I know this is a pick 3 question but that happened to me when my pick 5 numbers were drawn one night.  (I've already moaned about this!)   That was a combination I played several times, so it really hurt, but I'm over it. (about 98%)

      I don't play pick-3 very often, but I do think of numbers all the time that are drawn.  Sometimes I wonder if our minds play games on us, since sometimes I'm not quite sure if I really thought of the winning numbers or I see the results and think I thought of the number.

      "Oh, that's my telephone exchange and I was going to bet that this week. Why didn't I?"

      "Oh, that's my birthday and I thought about it all week.  Really"

      "Oh, that's my IQ and I dreamed of playing it for so long but kept changing my mind."

      "I weighed myself last week and knew as I stepped off the scale I should bet it. Darn."

        You mean to say to shoulda coulda woulda hit all  5???????...DAM   you must be one laid back chickie.I get all sorts of ruffled with the 3 didit games.The sheetrock at my place would look like swiss cheese if I ever lost a big number game.I know this example doesn't compare with your loss but the other night I picked for cash 5 here in CT.I picked from aimlessly staring into the archive and just jotted down 3 sets of numbers without thinking.Low and behold I got 4of 5.Unfortunately it only counted towards my stats here($150)...in actual CT money it 'woulda'  been a well needed 300.....ah well, better daysI guess

          Yes.  As I said, we've all done it a lot, but I was playing different combinations of the numbers 2-7-8-10-19-28.  (family birthdays)   I still do.  In Jan I got 4 numbers with 2-7-10-19-28 and the winning numbers were 2-7-8-10-19.  Jackpot was $232K and 3 people hit.   I'm sure people are sick of hearing about this, but since you are a new member and asked....

          No, I never was off by just 1 for a large jackpot like Lotto or MegaMoney.  I had the same thing happened with "out of the blue" numbers with Lotto.  I picked 6 numbers at the last minute and got 4/5.  The two I didn't pick were numbers I usually play.  I'm sure that happens to thousands of people everyday.  Who knows why we change our minds or don't play a number?  Maybe there is a big plan and, if we did pick those numbers, they wouldn't have been drawn!

            Honestly you're the first I ever heard that coulda hit the 5 digit game.That's bigtime.I know I couldn't rebound from something like that.That kinda money is somewhat life changing.I had an incident with Pball were I used fortune cookies but 1 set of numbers stood out.Not only did they look like winning #'s of a sort,they were red when every other fortune cookie I had were blue.Played em for a while with CT cash and got a couple petty hits.2 weeks later used em for pball and straight up got 4 nums with the powerplay(400)...sad part of the story is the pball # that night was 31 which is my fav and it was 2 rows up...coulda' won 40 g's...Thank god I got 400 because I'd prolly ended in an asylum over it   lol

              Actually, I believe there have been a couple of people who have admitted that they skipped playing their regular numbers and missed winning big jackpots like Powerball and Mega Millions. I can't find their posts though. I think it happens every so often.

                That's mindboggling.Particularly if you're commited solely to the big drawings.I really don't think I could let something like that go for the rest of my life.Do you know if the people that happened to were religiously playing the same #'s?

                  I think one person said that they played the same numbers each draw, but they didn't make it to the store in time to get their tickets for one drawing and their numbers came out.

                    I think this belongs in the "Discussion Forum" not in the Cash 3 forum

                        I actually missed out on around 69k back last year in the pick 5. I hardly ever play Cash 5 but when I did I play I played the same 5 numbers. Well one day I was gonna play and decided not to go to the store. That day all 5 of my numbers hit.
                        I felt like crying. No strategy just 5 numbers that were family members birthdays. I love pick 3 but just can't seem to get into the big games.
