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.

I  Pray  and  Hope  the    strategies   come   first    Smile

        I always check my tickets before I leave the store that everthing is right on the ticket.  Like the numbers are readable and it says the drawing date is the right one and my mother complains to me that since I read the numbers already that is why I have not won yet.  I just blow her off and say this is the day I am going to win big.  So come on mega millions and powerball.  I would like a trip to some were with lots of sand and cool drinks.-weshar75

            A win today could mean widespread panda-monium!

            At least in my trailer.

              lol lol  I know every panda joke in existence from when Tai Shan was born. They are expecting twins. They are not going to leave it with the mother for weeks and are going to try to get it away from her for a check up in the next day or two (the last one died last year..DC has the worst luck with their pandas). But one of the experts from China is here this time to help out.

              What is a panda's favorite color?

              Bamboo green!

                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 certain stores that I will only buy certain tickets from.  I will pass tons of gas stations just to go to a store that has had a big winner on whatever game I am playing.

                To God be the glory... 

                When you're winning you're being blessed by Him!

                  I really need to start checking before I leave.  I have had two times that I have gone in a store to buy QP Cash 5 and not checked the numbers only to get home and realize they are qp's of the last night's numbers.  Tonight, AGAIN, I am stuck with a Cash 5 ticket that has last night's numbers on it for tonight's draw.

                    It can happen and it's happened before, MsN.

                    There was a story in the News Forum here about the same six numbers coming up in a Lotto game twice in a row.

                    I think it was in Bulgaria or Romania.

                    Funny (strange) thing was, a whole bunch of people played them and won, if I recall correctly.

                        Each time l hear the words suck- they remind me of a Presidential contender that once said " that Giant sucking sound you hear is Jobs going South of the border!"
                        Whatever happened to that fella?

                          Wow that is really weird but I just don't see that happening again.  I stopped and got a new QP ticket only to get 16, 17, 18.  I give for tonigt and hope I win off of my own numbers I always put in.
