What is your worst losing streak?

As of right now, I'm 0 for 480 on Powerball and 0 for 216 on Mega Millions.  I just can't catch a break lately! lol

    Maybe try a new game for awhile, just until you get your groove back.

    Did you exchange a walk on part in the war ?

    For a lead role in a cage?

      Yeah, like Scrabble or Monopoly maybe.

      I think that's what I need to do.

        If you discount small, inconsequential winnings, over 99.9% of players are on horrendous losing streaks.

        But as you can see, most don't like to discuss it, lol.

        Which brings to mind an old song by The Animals called "Don't Bring Me Down"

        That was waaaaaaaay before my time though.   Wink

          Are you talking 480 and 216 drawings or sets of numbers?

          If you had three sets of numbers that would be 0-3, no?

          No matter what game you are playing the most common result is going to be whatever doesn't pay.

          Rdgrnr is right, almost evderyone who plays is on a losing streak, but of course it only takes one hit.

          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 don't have losing streaks. I look at it as, I messed up, and  didn't play the winning #.  What?

            The numbers will tell you what numbers to play. Pay attention to the numbers.

            Don't just think outside the box, crush it.

                Number of tickets.  My mega millions streak went up to 221 as of last night.

                 

                The games seem very streaky to me.  I had a period where I won either 3,4,7, or 10 dollars on MM and PB each consecutive drawing for about 2 weeks.  It was odd.

                  I bought an advance play with 20 consecutive drawings (Mega Millions). I picked one set of numbers. I spent 20 bucks and only got 2 bucks back. I have a much better luck with scratch offs.

                    Hmmm, you apparently picked the wrong numbers, you can't blame the game for that.

                    Try it again with a Quick Pick and see what happens.

                    I'm so confident you'll have better luck this time that I'm willing to split the jackpot with you if you win.  Thumbs Up

                        Shake things up for a few rounds, do something different.

                        Even go so far as doing something that you think is stupid, like getting advice from someone like tiggs or something as equally insane as that.

                            Maybe, you should stop playing and never play again unless they change the game.
