What little 'lucky' thing do you do in regard to playing the lottery?

Do you have a lucky charm? A 'medicine bag' full of them? Rabbit's foot?

Do you wear a certain article of clothing when buying? Turn your hat backwards?

Do you only buy from certain retailers or a certain clerk or only on certain days or a certain time?

Do you say a prayer, recite a mantra or affirmation? Keep your tickets in a 'lucky' spot?

What little thing do you always do for luck?

      I  wear my lucky color purple, on thursday my lucky day wearing a bracelet with the lucky gemstone for my sign I keep 8 of my lucky gemstone s and amulets in my left pocket and as often as I can, try to purchase my lottery tickets on the days of the week that equal to my life path number of 8.  I feel especially lucky when that day falls on a thursday.  I also try to purchase my tickets during the time when the numbers equals 8.

      Been lucky a few times with that.   But the jackpot is only a matter of time --just waiting for everything to hit just right.

      I dont pray for lottery winnings.   But i say a winning poem  that i wrote and focus on repeating it along with a quick manifestation.

        sully16,

        Magglio Ordonez....I guess for women in Chicago it's Carlos Quentin!

        lottocalgal,

        You're well versed in numerology!

        I read this somewhere and say it to myself when I play the tickets;

        "Money, money come to me

        for I deserve prosperity"

        ____________________________________

        Every once in a while one of the tabloids, usually The Sun, has a lottery article or a "Lucky Pyramid" to cut out and place over your tickets.

        I do that or put a leprechuan charm over them.

        I also draw the number 8 and keep it in the playslip wallet.

        On the way out, if there's a stuffed animal in the store, especially a unicorn or elephant, I'll rub the tickets on it.

        Lep

        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.

          Hey I like it that  one!

          "Lotto jackpot come to me
          my numbers picked are drawn from thee
          bring me luck from noone's harm
          my life to change from this day on."

          I was told to alway ask for noone's harm because you  want to make sure you do not benefit from someone elses hurt - its like you win the lottery but end up in a car accident  where someone you love gets hurt.

              I like both these quotes. As a matter of fact, I just printed them and am taping them to my monitor so that I can see them everyday. Thanks

                I have to use a penny dated 1971 to rub my scratchoffs. I dont know why that year...But everytime I get one in change  I always keep it.

                I used the pyramid too. And the number 8 on a green slip of paper.

                  If you find a penny face up tape it over your front door,supposed to bring wealth and prosperity. if you find one face down turn it over and leave it for the next person.

                              1909 is a bit older then me..I played numbers like that once Al Kaline and other Detroit numbers..Like you zero..I lived in Wayne in the 40's and Ypsilanti in the 50's and 60's..I miss Ypsi but won't move back after going back and seeing friends..Looks like a ghost town..Good luck and hope you as a Michigander will win big..
