Astral projection or telekinesis!

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.

        they say you are more likely to die driving to the lotto agent than winning the big jackpot, so i send the missus.

          I drive my car , most times I am trying to get to the retailer / gas station right about 10:25 PM just before they  stop letting you play for the night .

           

           Good Luck,

          Blackie.

            Most of the time car, but when it's warm and if I'm out walking, sometimes I'll just stop at the gas station and buy them.

              This varies.  The only game I play every draw is Mega Millions.  I like to get those tickets in a small town about 20 miles from here.  I use the car to get there.  I usually get multidraw tickets since it isn't exactly nearby.  I don't go there for superstitious reasons, but if I were to win a jackpot, that's the place I'd want to get the attention, and bonus money.

              The occasional Lotto Texas and Powerball and Pick 3 tickets I get nearby, and usually walk.  Unless I'm buying a ticket because of a high jackpot (Powerball near or over 300 million or Lotto over 30 million).  If I'm buying a ticket due to a high jackpot, I go to the small town 20 miles away (in the car).

                Always by car.

                The store is only a few blocks away (1/2 mile) but I pass by it anytime I go somewhere so it's easiest just to stop by either when I'm coming or going.

                      That must have been an astral typo where you hit the 4 and 5 instead of the R.

                      So I'm putting number 45 in the rotation for MM tonight.

                       

                      I was also thinking about going to a Bingo Hall and looking for a Bingo card with R-45 on it so I'd have a jump on winning.

                      Then I remembered there's no R in Bingo.

                      So that's out the window.

                        Car. I don't have anything within walking distance. When I was at the University of Georgia, there was a gas station right outside my apartment, so I would walk there to buy lottery tickets.

                        Today's winning 3-ball is going to be a number between 000 and 999.

                        In a lot of states, lotteries benefit education. That makes the REAL winners the only people who can't play!

                            I ride Frances, my talking mule.  He says playing the lottery is a fool's game.  He might be right but I play anyways.  I wish he would just shut up about it, tho.  His negative remarks are beginning to plague me.  Beside, he can't pick winning numbers any better than I can.
