    You hear it all the time, someone who rarely buys a ticket wins a jackpot on their first attempt.

    Could it be just beginners or newbie luck. What?

    Do we build up a bad "karma" after playing for so many years without winning much of anything.  What?

    It might also be that people who rarely play, aren't brainwashed yet to all the systems and methodology's that we are exposed to daily.

    Perhaps the old timers just get burned out, and need some time away from everything, to re-energize and renew their excitement again. What?

    I do believe that there's such a thing as trying too hard...especially with JACKPOT games. There is absolutely no respect of persons, skill level, education, money, or total time invested with playing the lottery as a whole. Recently, there was a discussion similar to this regarding a very young man (22 yrs. old) that won. He's only been playing, off and on, for four years and now he's rich. All the while, there are others who have been playing 3-4 times as long and still haven't been lucky enough to win.

    It can be very good to take a break and then come back "re-energized" as you say. But, the caveat to this is that if you have a dedicated set of numbers then, they're also on "vacation" with you. To have them hit while you're on break would be nothing short of devastating. Quick Picker's, on the other hand, will never know as long as they don't retain old tickets and review 'em. 

    To me, players that are somewhat passive and just having fun with the game seem to win 2:1 over those trying to force, or, expect to win based on "dues paid" in relation to time and money. That's a no-no.No No

     

    L.L.

     

    Small games, frequent wins, and regular payouts 'cause.....

    There are seven days in the week...'Someday' isn't one of them.

         I think people are encouraged to buy 1 ticket at the time, because from $1 buys most profits are made by lottery company, because those people practically never win.

        Buying multiple lines versus buying a single line? I have to agree with you.

        Buying more lottery tickets increases your chances of winning. I rarely win whenever I buy a single line.

          You said rarely, but you have won the lottery at least once with a single line.  What?

            Thanks for the insight LL.

            Im happy to report that I have created a systematic approach that is now on autopilot and I'm no longer trying at all or even picking my own numbers. 

            This is so easy I think a caveman could do it,............

              I feel that buying multiple lines with a lottery stop loss limit to minimize losses allow us to win a jackpot sooner.

                Buying more lottery tickets increases your chances of winning smaller prizes more often versus buying a single line.

                Buying 2 lines for a particular drawing is better than buying a single line.
