When you can walk into the store and recite your numbers you're playing without handing the clerk your betslip, and he prints them out without your bet slip.

Maddog, that reminds me...

My husband recites his numbers to the clerk, and if he makes the mistake and leave off a number they will remind him of it. "What, your not playing 0887?"

Feeling,  PRICELESS!!!Banana

Come on Jackpot!!!

            When you can instantly mentally record as good or dismiss as bad any number a person in line ahead of you is saying to the clerk. It's worse yet

            when you can calculate the sums, process HLH, LLL, HHH, HLL...EEO, OOO, EEE, OOE....know the last time it showed up...know the set up....and

            struggle to stiffle the urge to say:

            Why don't you play xxx?

            or:

            Put more on it.

            or:

            Are you nuts?

                When you waited for the Saturday night drawing (it was the only one).

                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.

                  Let's do a 'complete the sentence' thread for fun.

                  You know you've been playing the lottery for a while when.......

                  Your platic ticket lottery wallet they give out says The Big Game on it.

                  You find playslips used as bookmarks in books you've read years ago.

                  Somebody talking about something else entirely mentions a date and you know what numbers were drawn.

                  You have playslips from two or three matrix changes ago.

                  You know you've been playing lotto a while when ....

                   

                  You have enough old playslips to paper your den or family room

                  You know the clerks at the store so well you ask about their families at each visit .... and they ask about yours

                  You have enough nonwinning tickets to paper your bathroom

                  You know all of the stores in your area that have had jackpot winners ... and all the ones that have never had a winner

                      When two people ahead of you in a checkout line get the same total, or when you get a total that is a palindromic number, and such things have to be played!

                      When you find lottery articles that you cut out from tabloids a long time ago.

                          When you are on the way to work in the morning and notice that you need to stop for gas, you stop at the store and buy your lottery tickets and forget about the gas

                          and run out of gas on the way to work !  (yes there is a lesson to be learned here)
