            I didn't invest squat.  I did think about maybe playing some 8s in some games, though, but decided not to just before I left the house to go do my lotto run. Smile

            A Gold account on Lottery Post:  $4.95

            A Millionaire Jumbo Bucks scratcher:  $20

            Airfare and hotel in March 2007 to see The Price Is Right before Bob Barker retired:  $600-something

              I'll fess up,

              I played 888 - hey, the date ony comes once a year (like all others), this is '08, and hitting a triple, which is an automatic straight, would be nice.

              I also played 8888 (20 year anniversary of 8-8-88, when the lights came on in Wrigley field), and tried to play 8808 but that number was closed out by the lottery.

              Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

              Lep

              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.

                  Was the "8" phenomenon on 08/08/08 like the "7" phenomenon on 07/07/07 last year when players bought extra PowerBall tickets and nobody won?  The "8" phenomenon didn't help anyone win the MegaMillions this year either.  If I missed anything there will be a "9" phenomenon next year on 09/09/09.

                              Zero.  The date has nothing to do with what numbers will be drawn so why bother?
