    I am on a 20+ year losing streak myself unless I win that next Powerball Jackpot.

      Just walk away for awhile, sometimes you just have to leave it alone until your head clears.

      I Agree!  I'm in the "leave it alone" mode for awhile.  Good advice, Sully!!

            Unfortunately I cannot disagree with that statement. Hopefully that changes this year

              It's not easy to win" u have to keep playing but play less like u are doing. Then when u win get back to your old ways. I won almost 500k on a cash 5 ticket. This happand one month into a system i was playing ... I have not won since, it's been 19 months... Im still playing but only when jackpot is not hit fir 3 days... This keeps mE grounded... obviously i am still way ahead... But after winning like hat u just expect to win again! so i just am careful about how much spend.

                My advice would be to either drop the current system, or, make some dramatic changes to it then simply conduct testing to verify efficiency. This will only apply to P3/P4 games. Any 5-6 number jackpot game is gonna be pure, unadulterated luck if won. Again, numerical efficiency is your best friend but, it also costs...which is the enemy to 90% of players. People sift through theses forums and see where players win on a str8 on Pick3 or Pick4 with a handful of numbers and think it happens that easy all the time for that player.

                Well, ask that player how long they had been playing before they won and when was their last win and what type (box/str8) was it. Yes, it's very possible to win on luck with a few numbers. But, it won't occur even remotely regulary because there's very little efficiency with a few combinations. If they do hit, though, the profit is GREAT! I prefer knowing when my hit is due over playing with the uncertainty of hoping I can hit at some point.

                L.L.

                Small games, frequent wins, and regular payouts 'cause.....

                  Trust me when I say this. Where you buy your tickets isn't going to matter. I believe scratch offs are disstrubted evenly throught a state. The old saying goes, "If it is meant to be then it will be". Every person who wager money in a game of chance regarless of whether it's the lottery to casino games have a period of "bad luck". It's the law of averages. Just as a person can get on a hot streak, they can also get on a cold one as well. I've had my share of cold streaks. The secret is to not let them get you down when you lose. Also don't buy into your impulse to feel that you must immediately play again after a lose as a way of trying to redemn yourself for the lose. Just let it go, do something else then play again another day or few days later. Lotto to me is recreation, If I win great and when I don't oh well. Think about it, little old ladies dont' get depressed when they don't win at bingo right? lol  Stick to your budget,don't go over it and remember that this is just a game, so have fun.Thumbs Up

                      you may have to choose a new method on how you get your numbers. people online may have the number or books, but netting and winning is another situation. some people on this line may understand the lottery system. i think something has to be done to make your numbers net.

                        i think its requires the understanding of math and astrology and how weight is shifted and tne entire monetary system itself. i have visions of the moon shifting and sometime about the sun. there are a very few people who knows how to get that number.i think things should be done to increase the odds. in my opinion wealth shouldnt be share amomgst a few

                          I can best respond by giving a direct quote from my upcoming book "How To Win The Lottery Like A Wild Man Gone Insane!"™®.

                          And here it is: "You can't win 'em all but you can lose 'em all."

                          Why?

                          Cuz sometimes you're in "Dam* the torpedoes, full speed ahead!" mode and sometimes it's "Hold her Newt! She's headed fer the barn!" mode and you have to know the difference, you have to know how to adjust accordingly, and you have to know when to pull the dadgum trigger.

                          That's what I'm talkin' about.

                          I ain't kiddin' neither.

                          Dadgum straight.

                          I'm here to testify.

                            after a year of not winning a red cent on one pool i run, it then turned around and won 8 draws in a row.  when i say won i dont mean the jackpot, but  some cash.   now its back to losing most of the time.  but i did think that winning streak was going to  end on a biggun. o well thats to come. I must say the winning streak even though it was only $10-$60 prizes, would have been nice to continue a few months longer.
