    After considering everything, luck does play a factor. For example, look at the New York Giants.

    Remember they beat the Green Bay Packers (got a lucky hail mary before the 3rd quarter).

    Won the coin flip in over-time against the San Fran. 49ers resulting in a field goal, a few plays later. 

    And finally, they beat the Patriots in the Super Bowl for a repeat win. 

    This is so different than the lottery but luck applies to everything in this world, in my opinion. 

    The only time luck works is if you have the effort, game plan, and humble state of mind, is when luck works. All of these feelings combined creates luck, resulting in wonderful things to come. 

    In summary, we need to have focus, attention, and effort... once these are applied, luck will be on your side. I think it's proven. Look at the CNN producer who won her 2nd big prize.

        i usually go for the logic approach. but if i have a dream about lotto, and say i recall some numbers. and say i recall what lotto i was dreaming about, like i checked tickets, and it kept saying i won. and  when i woke up the day i dreamed about was today!

        id kick logic to the kirb and play those numbers.

        2014 = -1016; 2015= -1409; 2016 JAN = -106; FEB= -81; MAR= -131; APR= - 87: MAY= -91; JUN= -39; JUL=-134; AUG= -124; SEP = -123; OCT= -84  NOV=- 73 TOT= -3498

        keno historic = -2291 ; 2015= -603; 2016= JAN=-32, FEB= +12 , MAR= -86, APR = -77. MAY= -48, JUN= -29, JUL=-71; AUG = -52; SEPT= -43; OCT = +56 NOV = -33 TOT= -3297

          When people say luck, what do they mean???

          i believe that everything is predestined, the whole world could tell me no and i will still tell you that you are wrong...

          people who dont believe that everything is predestined including the lottery they need to take a trip to the moon, see how hugeeeeeeeeeeee and blackkkkk the universe is, people dont believe stuffs are predestined yet they believe that when you toss a tennis ball in the air and when it comes down that gravity did it, and yet you cant feel or see not string no rope bring the tennis ball down...

          i also believe that in a far away planet there is like a giant gravity mirror where you can see the future or whats going on around the universe, not a portal but a mirror like in the movie: Lost in Space...

          question what if you saw an alien and you later learn that aliens dont dream they sleep but dont dream...and just the same way to aliens humans dreaming might be something magical, what if there are other creatures that do something else, like see the future that to us will look magical...

            a little advice when creating systems for pick3/pick4..look at the numbers backwards also not just from: 1-0 or 1-10 but from 0-9 or 10-9....

                  I remember my father used to buy a lottery tickets (when it was just like raffle tickets before) with the same guy on same day. One time he passed (bought us ice cream instead) and his colleague then bought his ticket.

                  It won a share of the first prize and he quit the job. 2 years later he was broke and his family left him.

                  I still think that we could have done better with that money but everyone thinks like this.

                  I guess luck can work in mysterious ways.

                  Suspiciousness is one way of saying that one do not want to know the truth. It is the best way to keep the mind empty and the spirit restless.
