The only ritual I have is that I always play both Wed and Sat drawings.  I have a brass four leaf clover that I put my tickets under for good luck.  What about you? Cool

    I do have what I might call a good luck charm (even though I still hit losers sometimes when I buy Razz ).  It's a Georgia Lottery "Today Could Be The Day" gold scratcher coin.  It's different from the other ones I got that night (at a fair where they had a GA Lottery booth -- this was before I joined LP).  It's the only one of the few that I have that, on the back, there's an......I guess you might say an "imperfection".....that looks like the symbol for "pi" (3.14 blah blah blah yada yada yada).  That same scratcher netted me $100 twice (on a $20 and a $2 ticket) and a bunch of other nice winners. Smile

    (I might get a picture of it later and post it to my blog.)

    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

    Winning something to get a trip to a district office:  Priceless Big Grin

      I don't really have a ritual or good luck charm, unless you count buying tickets every Wed. and Sat. a ritual.

          Justxploring, I knew your reply here would be a dinger!

          Yeah, I have "lucky" charms, but I can only imgagine the lucky charms the lottery has!

          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.

            No, I don't have any rituals or lucky charms, and I don't eat the cereal, "Lucky Charms," either.  I used to own a rabbit's foot...hum, I wonder what happened to it?

            If an LP member has his or her own charm, good luck. Who am I to say it won't work for you in the long run? In these hard economic times, whatever it takes to get you over the hump, do it.

            Finally, what's with throwing salt over one's shoulder? Maybe, I'll try that one.

            See Ya!-- Bye, bye!  When you win, may you glow as brightly as theSun Smiley

              I clicked other because when I pick a states short term picks,I watch / listen to  particular video to get the right perspective going..as for scratchers I need all the charms I can get.Seems i find the decks that are overly abundant with $1 hits  lol

                HEY! You stole my ritual! LMBO!

                Thats a good one!

                I guess maybe I should get a luck charm or ritual because I have NO luck at all.  I mean NO luck.  I have won like my dollar back on a dollar ticket....my five back on a five dollar ticket...but I think out of all the tickets I have bought..roughly one or two scratchers everytime I go to the store..every other day it seems..I may have came out ahead ($1-$2) maybe 5 times every 4 months.

                I got my numbers for MM when it hits 50M...and what the heck...I'm gonna cluck my numbers through the house for good luck lol.Crazy

                    I  too have  a mojo bag full of my favorite lucky gems and spices, I try to buy my Sat tickets on Thursday-my lucky day, and I wear an aventurine ring on my hand.  It is suppose to be worn on the left but my wedding ring is there  which for me is  the best good luck charm there is.

                      Don't tell anyone whats in your mojo bag or where you keep it on your body or it won't work.I also keep a buckeye in one of my pants pocket for good luck.

                              Smile  Well, Happy New Year to all!  In my humble opinion, to each his own; but I simply don't believe in rituals, charms and the like.  I think that's all just a bunch of hogwash, poppy<snip> and frankly bull<snip> ... though that could work some people too, 'cause like I said before, to each his own. 

                                     I believe that everything is timing and when its time for a number or a set of numbers to come - then they come, that's it - I just call my numbers in when iits time for them to drop like a ripe fruit off a tree! Logical system and confidence in it does the trick every time - I'm a happy player!
