I like to get my weekly tix for all games on a set day of the week. Obviously that means using advance plays, but I've found my luck improves when I instead buy them separately on the day of the draw.

Anybody else notice that or is losing making me paranoid?

    Before Illinois got Powerball if we were in a neighboring Powerball state I'd get advance play tickets.

    Now that we don't have to do that, I've found that if I play an advance tcket for the Pick 5 when the jackpot is pumped up, someone hits it on the first draw the ticket is good for.

    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.

      It's good to mix it up...however when you play advance plays, your numbers are locked in just in case you forgot to play or cannot make it to the store that particular day to buy your tickets--I played advance plays when I went to Las Vegas in March.  I purchased the tickets before crossing stateline; however as I recall, I didn't win anything.  But I couldn't take the chance of not playing because I am a strong believer of "lottery karma"--the day you don't play your numbers is the very day they will hit.

        It's not looking good for advance plays.

          I buy em a month in advance. One line of "mine" and one line of QP's on the games I play.

          I only play the JP games. Saves me a lot on gas and running around all the time.

            Same here, but I'm noticing I win more free plays and small prizes when I do same day plays.

              for my family syndicate i used to play 10 weeks in advance. but then i decided to keep the money in a bank account and only buy 2 weeks in advance. thus getting interest for the money whiles its in a bank.

              its a bit more complicated, and my blog goes on about why i do it this way, but 10 weeks is $100 cost.

              basically its convenience  for me, 10 weeks is very convenient. If my family always paid up on time i might still do 10 weeks worth at a time. but the few pennies i earn keeps it interesting.

                I'd be interested to know if the family members who don't pay up on time will still get a share if you hit the big one when they're delinquent.

                  I've run hot and cold doing it both ways but this year has been better than usual fairly consistently with advance plays for the small wins. Not so good that I'm ahead or even breaking even though.

                    oh they do pay up eventually, and they're family so having them in the sydicate means i dont have to give handouts when i win, they're already part of the deal. heck all their names are on the registration card so if this syndicate wins they are in anyhow.

                    personally as its family, i can forgive transgressions that other mortals would be condemmed for.

                    ie being late with lotto ticket money.

                     

                    i also keep any small wins in a bank account and am collecting for a total of $8k then the interest will buy all the tickets for ever, and i wont be complaining about late money.

                      That's a good plan. You're gonna win soon.

                          Nino224,

                          This goes beyond advance plays like you're talking about but Illinois has subscription plays, where you can play a set of numbers for up to one year (I don't know what the minimum is on this, maybe 13 or 26 weeks.)

                          In five years of receiving the results for the Pick 5 drawing (every night there's a drawing) I think I've seen six subscription winners. In other words, a very small percentage.

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

                            Oh, that reminds me. Massachusetts has a subscription plan for people who live outside the state for all the games except Mega Millions. They're called Season Tickets. It's the only one I know of. Most states won't offer subscriptions to out of state residents.

                            The Mass Cash game has a good % of season ticket winners. I'm told if you win you get a check in the mail. A check with a lot of zeroes instead of a bill. That'd be a nice change for me, lol!

Good, bad or otherwise. You'll maybe get lost in it, tied up in it a little bit, but if you work your way through that the real you shows up, I think. Maybe what's at your core deep down, maybe that comes out. Maybe that's what it's about." Mike Pace
