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 sit in the corner of my room, on the floor, and bang my head against the wall until my ears start bleeding profusely.

Then I sit back, throw my hands in the air while ranting some words unknown.

    This is a good topic. I'm not sure if what I do is superstituous but, I do it right before I play my numbers. I simply tell the machine, "I have just as many chances to win as you. So, just like me, ONE mistake and I win".

    It's more geared up to ward off fear than anything because gambling and fear don't mix. If I'm scared to play I'm scared to win because I have an equal chance at both. Hey, may as well play!!! Seems to work for me.

      sully16,

      We've got to know, are you going to get a Damon bobblehead?

      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.

        will see...he's got to earn a spot on the dresser just like the rest of them.

        Did you exchange a walk on part in the war ?

          I bought a Mark McGwire bobblehead when he had the HR record.

          I think it may have been a bad investment.

            Naw, never.

            Many, many moons ago the New York Jets were known as the New York Titans.

            Anything that says New York Titans on it is worth something.

            There will come a day your McGwire bobblehead will be, too.

            Wonder if Todd will ever put LP member bobbleheda in the bookstore!

              I'd buy a couple of those bobbleheads.

                Coin,
                I have been trying to find your pyramid.  How long have you seen one?  Is it like the Enquire's "Blue Dot?" ( never worked for me)  or is it one of those,  advertisements where you can buy an actual novelty pyramid statue?  thanks

                Oh and thanks,  I think it was sully ,  who first introduced putting the "8" in my plastic lottery wallet.  I do that now.

                Aside from the $50 I won on a fluke scratcher, I haven't been winning much,  not even my fantasy five two number replay,  But I still play daily and SLP twice.  For all of you REAL system people out there, I guess Im  now in the area where my numbers are "cold?"  Cause they havent hit at all in a while which is rare for me.  But my goal is to play them regularly no matter what.  So I keep shelling it out.

                Just waiting my turn family, just waiting my  turn.

                  A weekly tabloid called The Sun runs the pyramid once or twice a year usually, it's something that you just cut out of the paper and fold to form a pyramid.

                      When someone is in front of you at a scratcher machine, seeing what kind of ticket they get and getting, or not getting, the same kind.
