Hi everyone,

Just curious to know if people have superstitions about when and at what time you play the lottery? I don't really have any superstitions per se but there is a gas station close to where I live where I tend to buy my MM or PB more often.  I don't really have a certain time of day when I feel it's best to play the lottery. If it's during the week it usually happens after I get out of work but on the weekend there is no set time. Some people might feel they have to play at a certain time or at a certain place. Since winning is so random I'm not sure that having superstitions would help me. What are your views on this?

          I have little lucky charms at home that I put my lotto tickets next to.  The laughing fortune Buddha and the Lucky Cat (Maneki Neko).  So yeah, I have a little superstition in me, haha.  Does it work?  Since I've gotten those little trinkets, I've been winning more.  Is it because of them?  I think so, but hey, to each their own.

                I have tried morning, noon and night and still have not won the jackpot. So, now I just buy at anytime of the day.

                      Superstitions?  No!  I do however pay attention to where and when I get my easy picks and have tried to use the timing method.

                      My best success was buying 16 easy pick powerball tickets at stores on one street during certain times and 14 of them had two numbers plus the powerball on the same draw.  Haven't tried that since it went to $2.

                              I don't have superstitions.

                              I have only strategies.

                              And currently, they all suck.

                              But I will continue to employ them nonetheless.

                              Tweaking, ever tweaking.

                              Until they stop sucking.

                              Or I expire.

                              Whichever comes first.
