    I have a set I've been playing since 1993.  I guess that's 20 years now if my math is right.  I think about giving them up, but then somebody makes a post like this one, and I keep on playing.

    I would be devastated if my numbers fell and I didn't play them.  The risk of that happening is low, but enough that I will keep playing them till they fall, or until I die whichever comes first.  The extra few bucks a week is worth it just for peace of mind.

      That's how I feel. $10.00 for ten draws . About five weeks. My son picked the number when he was about seven , now he's 33

        Unfortunately, my numbers are for Powerball so since the price went up I'm paying $20 bucks per ten draws (that's the most we can buy for consecutive draws here in Idaho) to keep them in circulation.  It's still worth it tho.

          I'm in Az, too.  I think originally the pick was 36 numbers, right?  Now it's 44.  I am guessing your numbers now don't include the 8 additional numbers added to drive up the odds and increase the prize.   I quit my old numbers when the odds changed and they added new numbers. 

           

          Luckily in Az we have a company that is a professional lottery pool.  I've been with them for 2 years now.  Last March one of my pools with 10 players hit the Fantasy 5 for $247,000.  You have to be an Az resident to play the pools but it's a private company and opporating well in the state.  Might be an idea for other people in other states to do the same.  Not sure if I'm allowed to mention the link but Lottery Post might want to do an article on this company called PowerPick.

           

          It's a husband/wife team, seems super busy, they add more pools as the prizes go higher and more people want to buy more tickets.  This week for PowerBall I am in pools with about 600+ tickets.  Amazing with all the tickets they buy not to have hit a BIG one yet.  Odds are just too tough.

            In Pick 3, the top win is not so big to be playing for so many years the same set of numbers. Perhaps, even when playing the same set of numbers, do other choices on them, change their order, do pairs. Your pattern of picking the same numbers all the time can be such a red flag for lottery employes, since they can see where they come from, say, from the same place or town all the time. If they look up the cameras, they'll see you there every time you purchase those numbers. They simply exclude your combination from playing. That is one of their rules, not everybody bothers to read. I say, if during several months comination failed, change it. There is more where that one came from. Also, if you play "all ways" on it, you would win often during those 20 years some $80 each time same combo comes up only arranged differently. That happens several times per year. AT least you'd decrease your expanses by winning  abit.
