You go to play your numbers, reach for a playslip, and it's already filled out (properly).

Do you play it? Ignore it?

(I've played them and it's never worked yet)

For the choices:

2: You would play the slip, and also another 1 up and 1 down to those numbers

4: You ignore it, and rip it up because you don't want to be tempted to know if it would have won

5: You would play it and another set of numbers that are the pattern on the playslip with the playslip turned upside down

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 don't play used play slips that I made out let alone ones made out by someone else.  If I was going to play combinations that I had no idea of what they were I would buy some quick picks.  I make out play slips because I want to play specific combinations.

        I've never had that happen to me, but I probably wouldn't. I doubt I would even pick up a used playslip in the first place. LOL

          I run across these slips often.  This one I ran across was just amazing.  I looked at it and they had 555 for 1.00 for all slots.  I passed it and later found out it was one of the worst things I could have done.  I ran into the guy the next day and he was cashing out 2 tickets.  I was so hurt because I had the slip in my hand and put it back down.  We had gotten into a conversation and he said that he was gonna play that slip again until he realized he had lost it.   He didn't bother making out another slip because he didn't want to disturb me.  I didn't know that he was the one that left it.  I followed him for a while. He would leave them and I would hit, until the last time he played me lol  I didn't care I was hitting everyday so I had some bank.  Since then, when I see a slip, I write down what they had just to see if I passed on something good and so far no other has been lucky.

            cosmotravis,

            Yup! It happened today in fact, that's what made me think of doing this poll.

            This time I skipped it, all six numbers were on two consecutive lines and grouped very tightly.

            I've seen this once in awhile. I've also seen where someone has left a slip from a fortune cookie, one of those ones with numbers on it. That didn't work, either! Just more evidence that luck is such a big factor in al this. Someone finds a made out slip, and plays it, and hits, now that's luck!

            Perhaps he's a lotto angel!

                I find these things all the time, and to date, I have never played a single one.
