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

I concur with Uff Da!

I did have a very good laugh when I saw our draws for the day. Not a single 8 anywhere in our drawings.

Alot of people did eat humble pie for dinner though!

~~Is it true, Is it kind,Is it necessary. ~~~

 Thanks be to the giving numbers: 1621,912,119 02014

      Date has nothing to do with the # drawn really, what about 911 on that date a year later for the New York state lottery.  God bless and good luck.

          With all the hubub about it,I was just curious what everyone invested yesterday.I was shocked to see few catch it(880) on this board.I for one only invested a dollar and I shouda played 088 superstraight at a minimum...oh well live and learn

          NADA!!!! Besides I rarely play the pick 3 or the pick 4 games. PB or MM's for me. My state of Delaware has nothing but computerized drawings! And I REFUSE to play an already rigged game!

          Keep dreaming the impossible dream, it just may come true! Thumbs Up

            what do you mean?

            I spent zero on it, btw.  I had planned on getting some tickets the day before, but got side railed.   I knew it would be impossible to buy the tickets for those numbers by the time I was able to get my mega millions tickets and I'm on a budget anyway.  Hitting a straight on p3/4 vs hitting MM is not a tough choice for me.  Higher odds and all, MM wins out every time.

            But for what it's worth, consider this:

            9/9/09 next year

            10/10/10 year after that

            11/11/11 year after that

            12/12/12 year after that. 

            Then that is it for the triples, as far as I know, for the rest of the century.  This year's 8/8/8 and next year's 9/9/9 were significant for me because I am 38 years old for the majority of the year and 39 most of next year.  Also, this year's 8/8/8 coincided with my posts here on lp, which were at the time of the actual date 888.    It also coincided with the Olympics in Beijing, who consider 888 to be extremely lucky.  I thought I would be lucky too.  But I won $7 on MM and was one number from $150 because I had 34 as my MB instead of the 33 which came out.  Oh well.  Maybe next year.  Also, the number 8 is the number for "resurrection,"  "abundance," "new beginnings" and I sure could have used those this year.

              08/08/2008 has passed and there were no "8" phenomenon, but that won't stop people from thinking that such theories may be true.  States protect themselves in case such a phenomenon does happen by limiting the number of such bets.

              When it comes to picking numbers for lotteries, there are hundreds of theories out there.  I prefer to make up my own so if one ever does work, I'll be the only winner.

                That is a good idea, RJOh.  I have recently began my own version of the lucky dream numbers thing.  I'm testing today., so let's see what happens.  I tested it last night too, and it would have gotten me $40., had I actually put money into it.
