I've been playing my same set of power ball numbers for over 5 years now and have yet to even get the first 5 numbers which i would gladly accept because i always pp. Each drawing i get excited that maybe its my turn to win but after the drawing the numbers that come out are not even close to my 5 set of tickets. Yeah. I'm discouraged. I seem to have better luck on my state lottery game having matched 4 of 6 and 5 of 6 this year. I know that it seems that i'm crying over sour grapes here,but do any of you guys ever get like this. And do say o.k. i'm gonna stick with my formula or did you switch numbers or quit the multi state games until the jp got to a certain amount? I always play my same picks for every draw using the advance action option.

    I've been playing my numbers for over 25 years.   One day my turn will come.....   Of course that will be the day that I don't play them.  Especially, since I only play MM now.

      You problem is thinking every player gets a turn to win, it doesn't work that way.

            Is that 25 years with the same game?  If so, which games is that?

                  I've been playing the same PowerBall numbers for almost exactly 20 years now, and never better than a $100 win.  It does get discouraging.  I get my hopes up for every drawing too, only to have them mercilessly stomped on.

                  But before you consider giving them up, read the post on the Jackpot Games forum by tnlottodreamer.

                    I have played my numbers regularly for +6 years now and have never won anything substantial. At first they were MegaMillions numbers but also fit in PB's structure so I use them there too.

                    I sometimes skip playing and those times my stress levels goes up a notch because of the "what if" factor. I think I'm going to advance play just to cover myself.

                    That money's gone fo ever

                        I've only been playing the lottery with real consistency for the last year or so, but whenever I decide to play the PB it just seems like I never even get close with my picks.  I just think that the odds are so astronomically high that its difficult to come close.  I've had far more success playing pick5's and pick6's lately.  Maybe think about using your $ to play a game with better odds.  I'm now strictly doing the pick6 consistently and plan to win that one SOON!!  Cool
