I've been playing the same 5 sets of numbers (for both PB & MM) for almost a year now, and feel that this is the best way to win.Jester

For those of you who have been playing a special set of numbers, how long have you been doing this? Have you ever missed a draw and had your numbers come in?

 

I found this quote in a lottery article: "play the same number each time you play, because if you are lost, you are likely to be found if you stay in the same place instead of wandering around trying to find your way back."

    I've been playing the same set of numbers in every Mega Millions draw for over a year.  I haven't missed a draw, and haven't won anything.

    I don't do it because I think it make it more likely that I'll win, but because if I win, I want to win with those numbers.  Those numbers mean something to me.

    I do buy extra tickets when the jackpot is high.  I had four (my regular numbers plus three extra), including a quick pick, for Tuesday's draw.  That does increase (ever-so-slightly) my odds of winning.  But mostly I would want it to be my numbers, the numbers I worked out and have an attachment to, that won me a jackpot.

    Perhaps a bit emotional for something as cold as odds and randomness, but winning a jackpot would be a major life experience, with many personal effects.  I would prefer that it be based on a set of numbers with personal meaning.  (But would accept it if it happened through other numbers.)

      You should go with your instincts then.

        I have about 8 numbers that I play all the time in all the lotteries. I may alter them slightly on occasion, like if one of the numbers came up tonite, then I'll use one of my other numbers. If I have a few extra bucks, I may use an abbreviated wheel and come up with a few combinations of my 8 numbers. And if budget allows, I will also try and play some numbers based on research, but those are in addition to my regular set of numbers, not in place of.

          Artemis,

          " I found this quote in a lottery article: "play the same number each time you play, because if you are lost, you are likely to be found if you stay in the same place instead of wandering around trying to find your way back."

          Did whoever wrote that win a jackpot, or was it just their opinion?

          There's a post here on LP somewhere about the same numbers eventually hitting, but it may take 483 years or so.

          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.

            I know there are several members here who always play the same numbers but for me.....if I played the same numbers over and over and they didn't hit that would tell me I need a new strategy.

            If I put my hard earned money on lottery tickets I want to play numbers that are most likely to win. I can't imagine waiting years for my special set of numbers to all come together on one ticket. <------- READ THIS TIGGS.....  THAT would be LUCK : )

            For what it's worth when I hit 5/6 numbers on CA Lotto  the numbers weren't numbers I would have picked.

            Just get me thru this so called life......
