A big mistake some people make is playing catch up and mixing too much emotion with playing. Everyone thinks, dang...my number didn't come up

but when you start thinking: Mad SH*T!! Mad my number didn't come up, it's time to relax and adjust. It's a game and it cost money to play. If you

are playing to recover what is lost and getting angry about it, it will cause you to spend more...probably only to get even more angry. I've seen

various temper levels and for each draw that doesn't contain a winning combo, more numbers added for the next draws. Big mistake. Pick some

numbers you like, stick with them if you want, change them up if you want. Realize you're not going to win all the time. Accept if you win some of

the times....but for your own sake, don't let anger rule your plays. Stay calm, keep your head and make some changes...just so it's not adding 50

more numbers to your playlist, it's defeating.

    The biggest mistake people make is:

    not trying hard enough to find the answers.It boggles my mind how many use others picks here but in reality you will find you can do equally better just by simply trying to stretch your mind.

    Some people can shoot from the hip and are naturally savy that way that they can pick in the wind and land winners...I however am not one of them.I will always search for a way to cheat a hit somehow some way.

    The possibilties are endless folks

        Showing an example of the exception to the rule doesn't make the rule any less worthy.

        I've never read that rule on any list based on facts about lottery drawings but I have seen it on many lists of experts who made up their own list off the top of their heads using their common sense and no statistical data.

        Using my common sense I would probably not find many PB and MM drawings where all the winning numbers were below 32 but I would be willing to guess of the ones I did I would be lucky to find half of them had even a single winner let alone more than one winner.

          I guess a lot of players must believe that because this recent PB drawing:

           07/09/11 - 01 09 11 23 31  +06

          had no winners of its $48.0 M prize. 

          The biggest mistakes lottery players make is believing everything the experts say.

          Hmmm...

          Maybe I should start betting with my MadDog "system!"

            IMO, they're not "experts" unless they've made a few trips to lottery HQ with jackpot-winning tickets.  LOL

              One of the biggest mistakes that people make IMHO is that they drop the number too soon or they keep a number too long because it's their pet. Is that one or two mistakes? Anyway, my 2 cents.

              @ jackpotismine  ,    I Agree!

               

              For the past 2 weeks, I've been playing the winning number, the day before it hits, and when it hits, I switch numbers.

              And, I've been chasing, 823, and 428 since September of 2010.

               

              Good Luck.

              The Struggle is real!

                Assuming a win in jackpot games where the odds are tens of millions or hundreds of millions to one against the player.

                Then when the win doesn't happen to play heavier and heavier trying to make it happen.

                As a sidenote, it's interesting when thresads like thes come up the Pick 3 players assume we're talking Pick 3 and the jackpots games players, jackpot games.

                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.

                          I guess I'd rather get 5 of 5 even If I had to split the 5 of 5 pool with those people right? It's better than no win at all....

                          That rule is specifically for folks who don't want to split the JP, but again who cares, a lower tier win is a win, even splitting it right?

                            They normally don't split in Mega 5 of 5 you get 250k  because of the size of the pool.  Maybe in Pball when they go to $2 per line................I'm out when that happens.

                            What?

                              In my experiences, a lot of people play birthdays numbers because most of them don't have a system. The co-worker who won 1.2 million 25 years ago in the Mass. lottery, which I recently wrote about, his wife played birthday numbers.

                              It wouldn't be hard for private investigator to ask the officials for a breakdown of how many tickets played contained only calendar numbers. 

                              My experiences doesn't tell me what kinds of combinations others are playing but only what kinds of combinations have won which are the only ones that concern me.  If I feel good about a combinations with all numbers below 32, I will play it regardless of what others say about playing such combinations.

                              I don't think if lotteries gave their players backdowns of the kinds of combinations played it would have any value to players trying to pick winning combinations because 80% of combinations played are losers.
