I friend of mine at work got 4 out of 5 on one of her regular lines.   She plays 15-16-17-18-19 every day.

Even though there were no jackpots winners last night she only got $457 for 2nd place.

The night before there was also no jackpot winners but the 2nd place winners got $818.  But there were only 198 of the $818 winners and there were 363 2nd place winners last night.   

So that is a good reason not to use "gimmicky" number selections.   IMHO....of course.

I agree.

There have been over 6,000 Take5 drawings and never once have five numbers in sequence been drawn.  Add to that thousands of drawings in other states of their Pick 5 games where it's never happened, and you can see why it's not a good thing to do.  But to each their own.  It's very unlikely it will happen, but it's certainly possible.

Many people play 1 2 3 4 5.  If it ever hits, because so many people play it, each winner's share of the jackpot will look to them like they won a second place prize. Because it's so hard to hit five numbers, can you imagine how they'd feel?  I dont want to know what it feels like to know that I hit a Jackpot and received hardly any money for it.

I could get on a BIG soapbox here, but I wont.  Many people forget that playing the lottery is a SUCKER's BET!  You have a snowball's chance in Hell of winning big money.  If you want to play, go ahead and have some fun and do it! But know that you're most likely throwing your money away, so try to do it as "smartly" as possible. (If there even is such a thing as playing "smartly")

I play for fun/entertainment.  Yes, absolutely I'll take it should I be fortunate to win huge money. But I NEVER bet more than I think I can afford, and I DO NOT expect to win.  Sure, I have Gail Howard's Advantage Plus, and I goof around with some Excel spreadsheets that I made, looking for "an edge".  I've never found an edge. But I'll keep on looking for one because I enjoy it. I kill a lot of time I have, and I also kill the few extra bucks I have my wallet.  But who knows?  Maybe if I'm lucky, I'll get it all back someday.  G5

About playing the lottery --  You will lose more than you win. Until you hit a jackpot.  Then everything changes!

    There's been a 41st set of Take5 numbers that has been drawn twice.  I dont know when it happened, so I cant tell you what the set of five numbers were. It happened fairly recently as best I can determine. 

    Since the very first T5 drawing on January 17, 1992 (Happy Birthday to Take5) there have been 6,128 drawings. Because 41 sets of five numbers were drawn twice, that means 6,087 sets of five numbers were drawn once. There are 575,757 possible combinations of five numbers.  That means, 569,670 sets of five numbers have never been drawn.  That also says that 98.9% of the possible combinations of five numbers that could be drawn, have never been drawn.

    So what!  I'm still gonna play anyway!  Know why? (Yes, you're right, because I want the money!) but besides that, if there was a new and different set of T5 numbers drawn everyday, it'd take 1,577 years for all 575,757 sets of five numbers to be drawn.  I cant wait THAT long!  I want that money NOW!!!!!!!

        I dont remember that Beatles song.

        Even after 1,577 years I would bet that there would still be two or three combinations not drawn.

        Hey! doesn't it take like 25,000 years for 1 2 3 4 5  to be drawn?

            I have had a dry spell recently and not so much as a free play since last Saturday.   But last night I got 3 out of 5 for $23.   Power number tonight is 24.

                You know, I have been staring at my charts for over an hour and the future is still uncertain. 

                I always happen to think of a "new" line.

                Over the last couple of days I have been thinking the White Bounce of J.I.M. will reappear soon.

                However its a big FIB.  I dont like big fibs unless they are regular fibs..

                I am thinking perhaps the 24 will score with the 25.  But the 24 max skip is fifty three games, so thats almost a week away.

                        huh, good point.  Normally I thought 3 times was the norm for numbers to show in a short time.  But the 20 breaks that hitting 4 times since 1/13. So will we see the 19, 29, 32 pop one more time?

                        Still missing low digits and even digits...hummmmm
