We might have done this before, I'm not sure, but let's put some here for fun.

Things you've heard others say and you know are just not true, or things you might have tried and found out were not true.

Here's a few:

The sum of a Pick 3 drawing is usually 15.

Not in Illinois, I know that much!

Don't play a jackpot game the day of the drawing.

Total baloney!

Only play a jackpot game the day of the drawing.

Also baloney!

Higher numbers hit more often because there's more paint on the balls.

No.

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.

                  You played what? Those are my numbers!

                  No harm comes from hitting a jackpot and not remaining anonymous.

                  I bet more than I win but come out ahead all the time.

                  I hit three numbers on Little Lotto and it paid $47.52

                  (People have actually told me that. 3 of 5 pays $10 and that's it.)

                      Don't play until the jackpot exceeds the odds.

                            Lottery Post is a bunch of people who have all won a jackpot.

                            Evidently some people think so, consier how many times someone new joins and says, "Can you guys tell me how to win?"

                            The number _  has been out for _ drawings, so it has to hit today.

                            _ was the Powerball or the Mega ball last drawing, it won't be again for this drawing.

                            Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                              Such and such a number is due.

                              Everytime I play I hit.

                              My such and such friend/relative/whatever hits all the time.
