I feel that you need people that want to win around you. I think you can draw from that energy. Just
like on this site. Most people are bound to get a hit. How could you not? Only if you are a person that doesn't
It sure would be nice but I've found it's very rare, if you're talking about where you play the lotto.
Someone on LP once mentioned a Lottery Store in South Carolina, that would be nice. We don't have anything close around here. There's no place where there is lotto that is just lotto. Most opf the outlets here are in convenience marts, liquor stores, and grocery stores, which are usually very busy.
The clerks are doing everything rom Western Union (grocery stores) to seeling cigarettes and doing refunds. Then when they do get lotto a lotto of Pick 3 players "stroke" them and instead of having slips filled out want to tell the clerks the numbers.
And it's not "Give me 216 and 316 striaght box a dollar each evening draw." Oh no, it's "I want 216, one dollar, straight box....OK, now I want 316, one dollar, straight box, evening....Wait, did that hit the Mid-Day?, etc...." One store even has a sign where the playslips are, "More than three Pick 3 or Pick 4 have to be filled out on a playslip.
I guess the clerks really got;
I've seen this one, too, at a scratcher vending machine - "Sally the Stroker" gets a couple of tickets and then stands at the machine and scratches them even though there is someone else waiting behind her to use the machine."
Stroker is a casino term for a player, usually a minimum bettor (also known as a "flea") who is out to make the dealers work as much as they can for the least amount of money bet.
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.
