    The Lottery Fairy was waiting for you not to play it, sometimes that's how she displays her sense of humor.

    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 agree. You should play your numbers if you have a feeling about them. I too lost out on a large win because I didn't play a certain set of numbers and the feeling is horrible. Sorry that you missed on a big payout.

            I know the feeling I have been playing a big 4 for almost the entire year and it finally came out last week when I didn't play it.  Last night I missed the big 4 straight and missed it today for the day lottery.  Who knows why luck run that way. The only thing to do is to play a PET number everyday.

              Scary, I love that picture you posted!  LOL   

              Stephen, have you ever been to "Shuddawuddacudda?"  I pass through there a lot and almost took up permanent residence.   In January I posted about "losing" $58,000 because I didn't play a pick-5 combination.   

              However, everything in the universe happens as a result of a previous action.  So if you did play it, maybe it wouldn't have been drawn anyway.  Did you ever read Bradbury?  In "A Sound of Thunder" a time traveler kills a prehistoric butterfly and the future is suddenly altered by this one event.  So if you believe everything is related and one action can have a positive or negative consequence on another, then placing your bet with $20 on that number might have changed the course of a future event, specifically that drawing, and another number might have been picked.

              Still, next time go with your gut and you'll have less regret.  Good luck!

                    Just imagine if it had been 30,000, 300,000 or 3,000,000. All I'm saying is that it could've been worse.

                      To those who she has brought a jackpot to, she's gorgeous.

                      To those who have an experience like Stephen948, she's like the picture ThatScaryChick posted (I was going to say she looks something like The Old Hag, but TSC's pic certainly outdid that!)

                        Steven948,

                        Don't beat up on yourself too bad.   All of us lottery players have done this atleast once if not more.   I have done the exact same thing as you have; being at the store and thinking about a particular number or my pet number and did not play it!  Bought something else instead.   Got home and watched my number come out on the screen or hear the phone ring right after the lottery numbers came out.  I just knew it was my sister or my niece calling to ask me if I caught my number!!!!  I would answer the phone loud saying 'NO, NO, NO I didn't catch da number!!"   Bash   Sometimes they would believe me and sometimes they wouldn't cause they know I play my numbers by the week.   It would just so happen that I didn't play it for a week that particular time.   Wasn't meant for me or else I wouldn't have deviated from my weekly pattern.   I have missed so many numbers playing them for 7 days and then after 7 days I would sit and toss one of them away.  Well, the one I throw away comes out usually the next week.   I just don't know why that is.   Oh well, there are times when I think I am the only one on God's green earth who messes up!!  I can be given two numbers and will pick the wrong one every time LOL.  Case in point,  check plays for 557 and 657.   I chose the 557 yesterday and 657 fell straight in the evening draw (NY).  I preferred the 126 over the 657.  Same thing with 731.  Liked that number and 126.  Didn't play it and boom there it was!!!  My Dad used to say a jealous man can't work and a scared man can't gamble!!  LOL   I admit I am scary when it comes to gambling, but I hang on in there.   

                        Hang in there too!! Play the 171 again.  Repeats are very popular this year for some reason.
