Whether it's Pick 3, Pick 4, or a jackpot game, when do numbers HAVE to be played?

When you see the same numbers on different license plates several times in a day?

When you have two bills with the exact same amount?

When? Or are you able to just ignore such things?

I've seen lots of things like those examples, but they've never hit for me.

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've only had one experience when I felt numbers HAD to be played.  As I was falling asleep one night, I heard two numbers in my ear just as clearly as if there was a man speaking right in my room.  From what I've read since, hearing a "voice" as one falls asleep is not an unusual experience and is usually meaningless.  But at the time, I was only playing the state lotto, so used those two numbers in combination with various others in the next lotto drawing for several tickets and BOTH NUMBERS HIT!  Unfortunately, none of my combinations came up with more than four winning numbers.  I think I won a total of $140 or so.

    That was about twenty years ago and I haven't heard any such "voices" since.  If I do in the future, it would be nice to "receive" more than just two numbers!  Wink

      Numbers(play3) REALLY need to be played when sums of 11 come to town.I repeatedly kick myself in the a%s for not playing sums of 7 since they follow each other unbelievably in CT.I lost a grand the other day for over thinking on the way to the store.I woke up 034/043 seriously on my mind from the night before.I did my morning handicap and low and behold it lined up to being just that.What did my dumb a*s do...???changed the number by a digit to 044/440....but other than that numbers need to be played when they won't get out of your head even when there's no foundation to that number coming.

        One time I was watching tv with one of my friends and the drawing for the 4 digit numbers game came on tv, so I just blurted out some numbers.  Hit all 4 exact, I was just like, well there goes my chance to win the lotto lol

          I TOLD someone when certain numbers HAD to be played: they laughed at me, and sure enough, the number(s) I told them hit exactly in the time frame I told them they would. 

          Problem is, those numbers don't ALWAYS come up, and don't ALWAYS hit - but they hit with about 80% accuracy.

          Next problem is, it's only one number, you need all six.

          If a person played ALL the numbers they blurted out, or crossed their minds, they would be bankrupt. Evidence is, we here do that, none of us have won the jackpot yet.

            Today I had a dream where a certain set of numbers came out and now I have to play them. So yeah, there are times that I have to play numbers because I am afraid they will come out.

              My wife and I were in a store this morning and she was looking at stuff in the craft section.

              Somone had taken a combination lock shaped like a soccer ball and locked it to a bag of beads.

              Being curious I flipped it over, and the combination was on the back!

              So I took it to the hardware section where the locks are and there was one more lock just like it, with its combination on the back....and those were the only two with combinations showing!

              So on the way home....

                I'm just the opposite.  I see numbers and don't play them and then they get drawn that very evening!   Example:  I was staring at an address on an envelope that had 122 on it.  I even thought about that number for some strange reason.  Then 1-22 were picked that night for pick-5.  The other 3 numbers were 28-29-30 and 28 was my mother's birthday and there have been numerous 3 consecutive number hits.  All that went through my head, but I didn't play them because I already bought my ticket and I can't just spend more money on every number I think is calling to me.

                  I agree. I sometimes see numbers on cars, clocks. etc. that I want to play, but I rarely play those. However the only time that I will buy extra tickets, even after I've already bought some tickets, is when I have a dream with numbers in it.
