For the past year, I was spending $30 a wk playing just MM and PB.  I was doing 1 draw with my own numbers for MM/PB and an extra 10 MM qp's weekly.  While I've hit 3 white MM numbers several times, I've come to realize all it takes is just 1 ticket to win.  It doesn't matter how many tickets you buy, that does not increase your chances of winning.  Now, I just do 1 MM and PB ticket with my own numbers weekly.  I've reduced my budget from $30 a wk to just $10 a wk... I'm much happier=)

    The predictions board is there for a reason. To safely remind you that the lottery is very very hard to win.

    That money's gone fo ever

      Never surprises to hear that someone has changed the way they play. Most of us have changed several times the longer we hang in and the more we research. And many of us will change again as we learn something new.

      I grabbed a couple of QPS on the way home last night. People in front of me were doing it, so I did too. I was hypnotized by the mob rule. A lemming, sheep, follower. If only I were a rich sheep I would feel better. LOL

      While it is true that any number can be drawn at any time, some combinations have a better chance than others of being drawn. This holds true in every game. If you look at the sum chart for any pick 3 game you'll see that the sums 13 and 14 have the most combinations. If you look at the result, you'll see that 13 and 14 are drawn the most often.

      Some sums DO have a better chance.

      If we do a sum chart for the Texas 2Step we'd find the highest sums look like this:

      On the LEFT we have the sum breakdown for the total 52360 combinations. On the RIGHT we have the draw results. Similiar to the NBA draft, the more balls you have in the drawing the better chance you have of being drawn. And as we see the sums with the highest combinations in the overall matrix are the highest in the real drawing.  There is order in random.

      Absolutely buy a couple of QPS. Don't be shy to make your own picks either. Research might help you make better selections.

      So be bold. Walk around like the force is with you, lady luck is in your pocket, and you have a lightning rod in your underwear.

      Good Luck in any case!

      My greatest accomplishment is teaching cats about Vienna Sausage. When I need a friend, all I need do is walk outside, pop open a can, and every little critter in the neighborhood drops by to say "Hi!"

        I agree.
        I observe those slogans out here that say " Play Responsibly" and view the game as fun, and l play $3-5 a game with no regrets either way. I am also well aware of the odds so when l don't win at least l tell myself l only lost the cost of
        a happy meal.
