Do you use them to record results (#6 above), maybe looking for patterns?

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've seen many people use patterns on Keno slips and were successful too. Moving the pattern one number left or right is almost the same as spreads but rotating the patterns clockwise (or counter-clockwise) one or twice might be interesting.

        Oh and I use plenty of play slips because I'm always checking the wrong box. Why to they make the print so small?

          I wrote a program that creates a facsimile of a board on the playslips of the games I play which I use to check patterns of previous drawings and for help making out playslips too.  I recently added that routine to my RNG so when it picks a combination to play I can see its layout on a playslip before deciding to reject or accept it.

          When Ohio recently changed vendors, the old playslips didn't work so I threw them all out but I've build my reserve back up to 20 or so for each game I play, MegaMillion, Classic Lotto and Rolling Cash5. 

          I prefer to make my playslips out at home and check them before buying my tickets.  Besides, some stores don't maintain their supply of playslips and I usually buy my tickets about a half hour before the drawings which doesn't allow much time for finding and making out playslips at the store.

            Darn good point, and quite aggravating. That, or they have the slips but just don't bother to put them out. I've wondered how many people wind up playing a QP because of that. Granted, a clerk can just type in your numbers, but when it's busy you don't want to be a pain.

              I'm guessing, that I have about 2 or 3 dozen slips for each game. I really don't need anymore at the moment. I used to pick up some each time I would get tickets, but then I realized, that I had enough slips and I didn't need to keep bringing more home! LOL

                Yup! lately the stores I got to have been stocked up but a couple of months ago they were like gold, no one had any?  If I found any I would take most of them, which wasn't much.  Now I have a stock pile that I keep adding to just in case

                  In NY many location do not carry the slips for daily numbers and folks are too lazy to bother filling them out for the daily numbers. Lotto, mega, pick10 and take5 yes they fill the slips no problem. When I hand my slips to the clerk they are usually surprised and very pleased because it cuts down on time and eliminates error. They look at the slips like whoa !!!!!

                    I used up most of my extra MegaMillions play slips Tuesday playing 46 lines.  Two of the three places I went today looking for some replacements didn't have any out.  The one place that did only had a few so I took only nine because I didn't want to leave them empty too.  If I had a 100 line strategy and wanted to try it, I would be up a creek.

                      Every place I went tonight except one was out of MegaMillions play slips and I don't usually buy tickets there.  By the time I got there I had played all the slips I had so I ended up buying a $5 auto pick because I don't like going into a place grabbing a bunch of play slips with out buying some tickets.  I may start buying my tickets there, plenty of play slips out and no line.  If the jackpot rolls tonight I'm going to need some extra play slips for Tuesday.

                        One of my first systems, was to mark in one play,  all the hits for a month,

                        at the end of the month, it looked like a circle,   in the playslip,

                        avoiding the middle and mostly hitting on the outter edges.

                          I usually keep 20 or so of each game for the two states I usually play  (I've recently stopped playing TN except for PB) in the truck and the same amount in the house. I need a lot of slips because I change my mind a lot (which I frequently regret) and instead of voiding a game I just make out a new slip. I play maximum multi draws on most of my games so it's not much of a hassle.

                            About 100...Pick 3 and 200 Pick 4. I do not like filling them out in the store. I shake up my numbers daily

                            and hate not having slips at home. Like someone else said, some places don't even bother to put them

                            out......If you're going to advertise: Play here, pay here...for crying out loud have the equipment handy.

                            That goes for the money to pay out too...that's another discussion though.

                            I want to see the day where the option to choose 50/50 on the P4 comes on the playslip. Other than
