Things like license plates, fortune cookies, house and apartment numbers in TV scenes and sports scores have been mentioned in these discussions.

What are some of your whackier ways of picking numbers?

Here's one for starters. Play a $1 scratcher that gives you two winning numbers to match. If you win anything on it, play those two numbers in the Pick 3 or Pick 4. If you win something beyond a dollar or two and it's still in the matrix for a jackpot game, play those numbers and the amount won, too.

Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

    I went thru a streak where I didn't match any numbers ever on PowerBall.  So I decided to try to use that to my advantage.

    I took a play slip and started marking numbers that I thought would hit, kept marking until there were 5 white and 1 red number left unmarked.  Played those.  None of those hit either.

      Sometimes I play the cost of gasoline or my grocery total, or change amount, I hit on my change total once a very long time ago.

        I have been noting numbers I see on the way to work (did it twice actually for the hot lotto drawing...got 2 numbers).  For example, someone holding a newspaper on the metro where a number jumps out, the number of the subway car, etc. I need to do this again.
