I seem to win a lot of small prizes in streaks of a week or two and then go on long dry spells.

I usually increase my plays when I'm on one of the streaks thinking that maybe my luck might extend to one of the "big ones."

Does anybody else experience this?

    No I do not have that problem. When I play i usually hit str8 unless my confidence wavers but i still hit box.

      the game is designed for players to hit str8. if you hit box, you will soon understand that you r really paying them the money you won back!

            I'm with you on this one, and I usually find it to be a big mistake as that is when the dry spell begins.

            I'm trying to control this.

            But, several times I have held back on placing a little more money, trying to conserve and the number appears giving me another small win.

              Yup, thats me.  I hit in September 5 + times ( all within 2 weeks) on the 3 way and can't buy a hit since.

              Money won is twice as good as money earned!

                When I start winning I start playing with my gut feeling after the win. Why because my gut usually tells me when to or not to play. I also make it a rule not to lose more than what I spent on the date I won. So if I spent $20 on Pick 3 and won. Then spent another $20 on Pick 3 or any other game and lost then I stop and wait for the next wave of wins to begin.

                  Sure seems that way.

                    Never thought about that. Maybe we're messing with the good vibes by increasing the play. Interesting.

                      Not lottery, but......

                      I went to dealer's school in Vegas to fo to work in casinos.

                      The instructor was a real character. He had a theory that every gambler is going to experience a day or night where dollar you've ever blown gambling is going to be trying to make its way back to you, and many more dollars, but you've got to tralize what's happening when it's happening, but most people don't.

                      In othr words a 21 plyaer who has lost thousands over the years making $1 to $5 bets wouldn't dream of pressing their bets up to $20 and more when they're on a streak.

                      Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                      Lep

                      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.

                        Yes, it just happened two weeks ago, three days three hits, one straight, two boxes.

                          Yeah, that's exactly what my gut instinct tells me.

                          Maybe the trick is to hammer down immediately after the first small win instead of waiting til the second or third as I have tended to do.

                          Maybe there's only a very small window when everything is lined up in your favor.

                            An old timer told me everyone has 15 minutes of luck every day if you gamble you need to tap into that lucky period. I know you'll say no way we have 15 minutes of luck every day. Well it could come in all forms for a minute or 2 like when you almost spill that coffee or drink but you catch it before you it falls. You are going down the street and someone runs a stop sign but you in the nick of time brake to avoid hitting or being hit. Your luck might come during a dream where you are falling and wake up before you hit the ground.

                            I told him yep your right my luck must come when i am dreaming. He said could be try dreaming about pleasant stuff so you can pick up the luck during the day.

                            Big John says. You don't hit the number. The number hits you!!!!

                              I won 3 times in September and 5 times in October on the Florida Cash 3 and Play 4 - all together about $2,000.  I usually try and play the same amount of monies but it is tempting to play more because in your mind you think you can win more or want to win more.  Then you can start to get greedy and I beleive that is a bad Omen.  I have put most of the money in the bank and it's paid for my cruise I am taking in November.  It can be addictive and winning is fun fun fun!  As a side note, I never played the Cash 3 or Paly 4 until recently.......when I started playing I started winning.  So far I've been winning about once a month.  I agree.....everyone has a winning streak and loosing streak.
