Since taxijohn gave us the thread about the lotto play coming to $13 I thought we'd domone on this.

Let's say you pick up just a couple of things at the store or go for coffee and donuts and it rings up $6.66

Do you play it?

Do you buy one more thing to get it off of there?

Do you play it?

*9. Some churches teach that the nnumber in Revelation 13:18 should be 616, not 666, that the gematria was wrong. And 616 was Nero.

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.

      Technically, 666 in roman numerals is DCLXVI. I suppose though if you do each indivdual number it is VIVIVI.

      CoinToss, I put it's just a number...muhahaha! LOL The only reason that I doubt I would play it is because I really don't play the Pick 3.

          I remember one time my total rang up to $6.66.. I looked and told the clerk..ew...can't have that now, can we?

          I threw a pack of gum on the counter to change the total. Paid my bill and left and didn't think of it again.

          It sure doesn't happen often but the next time it did happen, I thought of it as a number to throw a buck on instead of a bad sign. It's nothing

          to dwell on especially when you're mentally flipping numbers anyway (999) and then getting the idea to just play all the triples right along with it.

          It's not so much an evil number, it's just a triples reminder. Big Smile

            Well about 40 years ago I was a member of a church that taught that sort of thing and the last days were coming , etc.

            Now, I do believe the Bible, but I don't get freaked out if 666 comes up in a number at the store or whatever.

            If you want to get freaked out, just look around you at what is happening in the world today. There's a lot more going on than just 666 popping up here and there.

                All Numbers/Combination of Numbers are Lucky!

                If the Numbers Drawn match the Numbers You Bet on: Then the Numbers were Lucky for You!

                If the Numbers Drawn don't match the Numbers You Bet on: Then the Numbers were Lucky for the Lottery!

                Either way the Numbers You Bet on were Lucky for Someone!

                            666 doesn't bother me.  I don't really think the numerical value, either as six hundred sixty-six, or as six-six-six, is in any way evil.  The Bible says it's the number of the beast, but I think that's because when it's written in Hebrew it looks like one of the names of God.  In Hebrew, letters are used as numerals, and the letter vav is used for 6.  Vav-vav-vav is a way of referring to God.  It also looks like the letter shin, which God used to "write His name" in the location where Jerusalem was to be built (three valleys form the letter in the landscape).  I think what 666 refers to is that the beast will "look like" God and people will follow him thinking he is God, but, of course, he isn't.  I don't think God meant to condemn the number as evil.

                            That said, I did once buy a lottery ticket when my total was $7.77 in a store that sells tickets.  I'm not anti-superstition.  The ticket was a loser, though.  I think a better approach is to buy a ticket when my balance is $6.77, so it will be $7.77 including the ticket.  That way the supposedly lucky number includes the ticket, instead of the ticket taking away the lucky number.
