Hello:

I have a lot of them, lmaooooooooooooo

But, I'll give you the most recent one.  Wednesday night, Jan. 27th,  I played, a number that I've been waiting on for 2 years.

The number is 199, I got a quick pick, 189, so I played, 199 straight, 10 times, Wednesday night, they dropped, 117.  :-(

Thursday Midday, 199 dropped, I didn't have a $1.00 on it.

My friend called me, he plays too, that's his birthday, 919, he called my phone that morning, and didn't leave a message.

He just called and hung up?

So, that was my sign to play, 199.

I called him and cursed him out, said he jinxed me, and don't ever call me a again.

lmaooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

Your post reminded me of something. Don't know if it's a jinx or not but I only play the midday in Pick3/4. I never seem to win at the evening draw so don't even bother with it anymore.

    Well Coin,

    Im not sure if this is jinx,  but the store where I USED to get my ticket  is now a place where I never get them.  Why? 

    Because I notice for quite some time that the clerk is angry, not at me but he has that dry negative aura like he doesnt want to be there anymore.  I stopped going ( even though the store hit a $65K  in2007)  because  i didn't want him touching my ticket with his negative energy hands.  besides, the address didn't add up to "8" so I stopped going.

      'Good Luck' is bad luck for me.  I don't return to clerks who say 'good luck.'

          tiggs, now..I've seen this side before and it got you into hot water Big Smile I'll agree with you though...people need to stop talking about the weather,

          the family, the 2's, the price of eggs, the guy that lives down the lane, the woman who goes and visits him, their back, their hospital stay, the

          bill for the hospital stay, the scruffy guy at church who they don't know is loaded, the President, the Mayor and the town idiot..There's a place

          for all of this and it's NOT at the lottery machine..get the clerk involved in the everyday nonsense and the clerk forgets what he's there for..to run

          numbers...not talk, not be distracted, not make mistakes, not stop what he's doing to say: Hey Bill, how's it going until Bill has his turn in line. Then

          make it snappy at that...get Bill out, get me in and don't talk to me.

          All this is a waste of my time because I want to get in and get out and get home and get ready. That's it.

          The jinx is the lottery shop that's acting like the watering hole. Call me anti-social but I'm not...it's just I like to get down to the business at hand..

          and that doesn't involve waiting for someone to figure out what they should have known before they came into the store or talking about how

          their week went.

            I'm not one of those women.  But I am very conscious of those clerks that say, "good luck"

            Real gamblers say, "Have a great day!" (hence my name here)

                    Agreed dr65. I had that very experience in VA yesterday buying my monthly tickets.

                    The clerk was babbling with someone for 5 minutes while I'm waiting in line, then continues babbling with him after she rings him up and starts running my playslips. I had to interrupt their conversation in order to get her to give me the proper draws on my tickets (and she got an attitude about it, like I was being rude). She then screwed up and didn't run one of the playslips and had to go through the tickets to find out which one it was.

                    That was my first and last time in that store.

                    Oh, and the subject of her conversation? How stupid it is to play the lottery! "Do you know what the odds are?"  "I've never played and never will." "I work too hard for my money to throw it away like that." 

                    If that didn't jinx me for the month I don't know what will, LOL!

                      rdgrnr lol! Yeah, don't you just love it? I don't get it..clerks acting like royalty or something, like their time is valuable and whatever they're doing

                      at the time is way more important than what any of us need or want or want to bother them with at the moment. That attitude needs an injection

                      of happy syrum and their views on the lottery need to stay in their closed yap...at least while working behind the LOTTERY counter.

                      I hope you win your states JACKPOT and go and show that lady how you *wasted* your money! Banana

                        For scratcher players, scratching tickets with anything but a quarter.

                        One of the places where we play is part of a large grocery chain. there's a guy named Larry at the service counter that knows the lotto players and takes care of them. So we call him "Lucky Larry". The thing is, I don't think I've ever won more than $1 when Larry runs the tickets.

                        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.
