If there are 2 stores and one sells a lot of big winners and the other doesn't, where do you go?

The "lucky" store cuz it's "lucky" [ 29 ]  [30.21%]
The other store cuz it's due for a winner [ 14 ]  [14.58%]
Whichever store is most convenient [ 53 ]  [55.21%]

Personally, I go to the other one cuz the lines are shorter (more convenient).

        I pick my own numbers so it doesn't make any difference where I buy them.

          I picked convenience. I don't believe in lucky stores.

          If luck ever knocks on someone's door, then it follows them to the store. No the other way around in my opinion.

          If in fact you see a correlation between winners and stores, it's simply an illusion in my opinion. Weird things will always happen in all circumstances.

            I pick my own numbers so it doesn't make any difference where I buy them.

            I wonder though if there are people who pick their own numbers who still want to buy their tickets at the "lucky" place?

            Anybody?

              As soon as I can find work I will pick my own numbers too...I pretty much take a few dollars at a time and buy QP's like last night & tonight...I haven't played MM or PB in 2 months(maybe a month and a half). Frown

                Lucky place?

                I'm a firm believer that once someone becomes lucky, it doesn't matter what their immediate situation is composed of.

                If it's your time to win, it could be on top of the Volcanos's lip overlooking the molten lava, and a helicopter will come and rescue you.....lol

                I've come to realize after 46 years, that it's all in your mind.

                  I know plenty of players who only buy 1 or 2 lines occasionally who play their own numbers and they don't lose any more than those buying QPs.

                    If I was certain I could get hold of like $3 for each draw I would play my own numbers...I never like going with 1 or 2 lines...that is just me though.

                      At least as a LP members, you can pick 10 lines, post them on the prediction board and have bragging rights if they win.  It isn't quite as exciting as losing real money, but it's comes close and it's free.

                        I'd have to settle on a strategy first and then I would post on the prediction board...I wouldn't mind doing it for Cash 5 in VA but I need to work some stuff out first. Smiley

                          Could vote, because it's both 1 AND 2.

                          Also it has to "look" lucky!

                            I voted for most convenient because I've already been in line behind a stroker too many times, but of were talking lucky stores I think we have to mention Fond du Lac (sp?) , Wisconsin!

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

                            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.

                              Yeah, I think we've all been behind "that guy" at one time or another. Trying to remember what numbers he wants to play while everybody behind him waits.
