I've been playing a couple of different lotteries on a regular basis for about a year and like many others, I've been trying to come up with a system that will help me with that ONE big win!!.....For the record, I will NOT be playing the MegaMillions lottery when it changes over in the FALL so I really want to try my best to concentrate on a win before the change.  Yesterday, I spent 2 HOURS calculating and analyzing numbers to play for last night's draw. I was sooooo excited when I was finally able to narrow down my selection to the five magical numbers that I just KNEW were going to change my life forever!!!!..I could barely contain my excitement as I searched for a pencil to fill out my play slip. It was  getting close to the ticket purchase cutoff so I needed to hurry, hurry, hurry!!!! As I adjusted my reading glasses, the first thing I did was make sure I blackened in the powerplay option, as I've forgotten to do this in the past a couple of times.  I then carefully penciled in the area for my first number......then my second number and third.....but as I was penciling in my fourth number, I could feel my excitement slowly diminishing as I began searching the last line on the playslp for my final number, which was 59.    Yes, I'm very aware MegaMillions only goes up to 56, as this topic is titled. "I'm LOSING IT!!......According to the results, it appears I wouldn't have been close any way....<sigh>

    I'd play the same five numbers in tonight's PB drawing, but I'd probably try to use a bonus number higher than 35.

    Yep, I know the feeling.

      thanks for the advice Stack, but I can't play the same 5 numbers as they were all based off of the totals I had for the entire month. it was the last draw of the month for MM and the numbers i had were calculated from the sums I had for that game, not Powerball...Heck, i just may do what you suggested too....it could've been a sign, huh?

            I see what you're saying, but with the system I use, changing the 59 to a 56 would mean I'd have to change my other four numbers because the system involves a known sum...

            Thanks for your input though!!

                I noticed 59 was one of the PB numbers so you're already did better than a QP.

                  For the record, a lot of players said they won't be playing MM after the next change.  But then a lot of players said the same thing about PB before its last change and changed their minds.

                    here is my prediction, when MM hits a $500 mill jackpot, EVERYONE will be playing

                    2014 = -1016; 2015= -1409; 2016  = -1171; 2017 = ?  TOT =  -3596

                    keno historic = -2291 ; 2015= -603; 2016= -424; 2017 = ? TOT = - 3318

                        I won't be playing MegaMillions with a system anymore but I will play a few QP's when the jackpot gets over 500 million.  So all in all I will be contributing signifcantly less to the jackpot pool during the jackpot run than I have currently to date.  So I don't think people will not play the game but I think the hardcore lottery players will contribute less to the jackpot, but I might be wrong.  You never know when you have 75 balls banging around maybe it will be less random.  I assume they will be changing their machines.

                              I need to rephrase..i won't be playing on a regular basis like I do now...I might contribute a couple (and I do mean just a COUPLE) of dollars when the jackpot is EXTREMELY high, but I will not be helping build it up to that point.....

                              The odds are just TOO HIGH for my interest!

                               

                              @RJOH--Yeah, alot of people do have to eat their words....I personally just do not have the finances to invest in playing MM on a regular basis with such high odds...Nor would I be interested... As I mentioned above, i might play when it's at an unusually high jackpot, but even then, I won't be putting into it what I do now....just a couple of bucks for fun
