Hi,

 

I was playing Lotto.  But now I play those same numbers for Powerball, Pick 10  and Mega.  To me, they have a nice syntax --- so I hope they will repeat in those games.

Nice, I never played classic... my Mom does but not consistent.  I really wish you the best

    that's one of my fears since I started playing... tough break man

    The lesson I learned is to stay consistent and listen to the inner you.  Listen to your instincts and stay consistent.  Prior to May 2, I was getting all kinds of good omens to play the lottery.  I followed them but the one I didn't follow was not to deviate from my playing style which was to play the same card until   .........

          A UK member who posts in the lottery system forum was trying to prove lighting strikes more than once by combining all the major lottery results into one data file to see if any combination had ever come up more than once.  I occasionally look over there to see if has posted any follow ups but so far he hasn't.

          That one woman wins the lottery twice with the same number from a dream.

              I don't think I will play the same numbers.  I think I read somewhere that it could 1,556 years for a set of numbers to come out.  The odds are not great.  I am debating whether to pick a new set a numbers and play until....... or play a different numbers for every drawing.

                  Although if you were patient, and continued playing your same numbers for 1,556 years (for 2 plays/week x 52 weeks x 1,556 years = $161,824),

                  and you were to win $8 million this time around, you'd still be ahead by $7,838,136.  Wink

                   

                  That is provided both you and the game are still around in 1,556 years.   Roll Eyes   Just keep taking your vitamins and watch your diet, you should be fine!

                    I to have been in that situation. Knowing a number is coming up, but being hesitant to play it. But like the individual said about the butterfly effect, is true also. When I know a specific number should come up, and when it does, it is always one number off. Go figure. My sugestion is, play your numbers multiple draws. This will cover you if you forget your slips.

                    Happy playing.

                    Danny.

                      Good point mc but even his math is bad as a repeat can be expected in more like 30,000 years from now. Also he mentioned that he is playing PB so the cost will be double and his cost will be around $1,200,000. after 30,000 years of playing 2 lines.

                       Perhaps we need a new law that prohibits people without a job from playing the lottery?

                          My ignorance, wasn't paying attention, assumed this was a "state" game. That being said however, how is it that he almost won just $8 million. What?

                          With the newly revamped PB, with a starting jackpot of $40 million, I'm not understanding the math here?  Roll Eyes

                           

                          Anyhow let me re-calculate the cost factor then for 30,000 years. Two lines a week x 52 weeks x 30,000 years = $12,480,000. This would not be a

                          profitable scenario if he were to win only $8 million, however if this really was was PB he was referring to, then it would be because of the minimum

                          $40 million jackpot.

                           

                          Yeah we do need a mandatory law that prohibits people playing without a job, the law should be referred to as "Common Sense".   LOL

                            I made one of the most stupid mistakes that I cannot get over.  I wanted to share my story with other lottery players.

                             

                            I had just lost my job in April.  I always  remember reading in the news how some lottery winners may have just lost their job, about to be evicted or in really dire straights.  I kept this mind.  I said to my self that would be wonderful if that happened to me.  So I started playing different lottery games, scratch offs, etc.  And they day I decided not to play my ship came in.  On May 2, 2012 I went in the store to buy a lotto ticket.  Because I did not have my regular playing card I asked for a $2 quick quick.  I put the ticket in my envelop with the rest of my tickets.  Lo and behold because I chose not go home and get my regular playing card, the numbers I always play came out.  The numbers were 2 6 26 41 47 55.  All I can do is talk about what I would do with my winnings.  I look at this way:  out of all the lottery players in New York, I had all the correct numbers.   Hey, it could happen again.  But I don't think so

                            I am so sorry to hear that you missed playing your chosen numbers that dayUnhappy. This is lottery karma at its worst and only if you had bought $1.00 QP and $1.00 on the numbers you normally play, your life would have changed in an instant.  That is why I always, always play my chosen numbers no matter what!!  However, it could happen again with another set of numbers so don't give up--GOOD LUCK AND KEEP ON PLAYING AND BELIEVING IN THE LOTTERY DREAM!!Wink

                              His story is sad but it's his own darn fault. 

                              The players I fell sorry for are the ones that made it to the terminals, played their numbers, paid their money and missed winning the jackpot by one number.  That happened to me back in 2002 with Ohio's Super Lotto Plus and I ended up paying taxes on $1500 instead of collecting a $11M jackpot and feeling I had my chance and blew it.   The same thing is happening to hundreds of other players every year.

                              Feel sorry for those PB players who paid $2 for a PB ticket and miss winning the jackpot by one number when they match 5+0 and end up just getting $1M instead of a life changing jackpotDisapprove.
