This just happened last night! I've been playing powerball 37 for about 3 straight months every single week along with a few quick picks. Well I'm in debt but I continued to play hoping for a break.....anyway this week after an unexpected doctor's visit that took the rest of my money for the month I realized that I didn't have anymore to waste on that darn powerball and pick 3 so I haven't played this week.
Guess what the powerball was last night! Yep!!!!! I'm still cursing at myself this morning and I'm more pissed off than sad...I guess the sadness will set in later. So this is what I get for trying to spend wisely and make it until my next payday. It finally came out and here I am adding up the money I've spent every Wednesday & Saturday on that very number for the past few months and I just want to cry.
As I always say "do not get yourself cornered" Don't get yourself caught doing the same thing over and over.
If you are in a fixed position it is likely not to reach you in time.
That I think is the difference with Powerball and pick 3.
In pick 3, it is the only way to play at least making money to wait for it to come to you.
On Powerball, it is the wrong way to play.
If you play the same number, it might be cold for a long period of time.
When, if you played 2 Powerballs randomly, you at least cover your odds. After every 19 draws you will at least match the powerball.
