You go to play your tickets and find lucky numbers from a fortunes cookie, numbers from a horoscope, or a perfectly filled out playslip there.

Do you play them? Is it an omen? Do they have to be played?

(Tin hat): Do lottery agents plant them there, knowing they'll be played?

What do you say?

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.

      I played fortune cookie numbers once and won two dollars. I matched the first three balls to come out of the machine, but the last three did not want to cooperate. If they did, I'd be having a $1,000 paycheck from the Georgia Lottery every week.

      Occasionally I'll play numbers that have come up in my dreams. I have recently taken to playing 3-digit numbers that people wrote for no clear reason on a dollar bill. I haven't won anything from that yet.

      Today's winning 3-ball is going to be a number between 000 and 999.

      In a lot of states, lotteries benefit education. That makes the REAL winners the only people who can't play!

        I see numbers as omens, if the balance of my checking account is the same as my odometer than it has to be played.

            Me too. I bought tickets last week, and also cashed in some winning ones...the total of the tickets I was buying came to $28, then after they subtracted the winning tickets, and added the excess, my change was $28. lol  So, I just had to play 28 in the Sat night draws, and it did come up in one of them. Wink  It also came up in another one Wed.

              If your checking account matches your odometer we could be really good friends. Is it a really old car?

                        I chose other for NO! I would feel like the numbers were meant for somebody else.

                          I am tempted to play the LOST numbers from the show...the ones Hurley uses and wins the lottery.

                           

                          4, 8, 15, 16, 23, & 42

                          Alot of bad things happened to him by winning with those numbers...

                            I have too many of my own numbers I'd play if I wanted to play more lines. I don't think I would play somebody else's.

                              I've played fortune cookie numbers and hit  $400 on PB a couple years back.

                              Me and my gal save all the fortunes when we ordered out and in the whole bunch(that were blue writing),I found a fortune with red writing.Really looked like cash5 numbers so I played em for 2 weeks and got $10 ..then tried PB for a few draws and hit.Pretty neat though I will admit.I also had the PB #with another set of numbers and not that one...woulda been 40 g's
