      I had a QP with

       

      Something like 26 27 28 29 4 numbers in a row but I had some other lines so it didn't bother me haha.

       

      Oh and that ticket won me 10 GBP with that line so it was worth it.

      2016 Won/Lost

      EuroMillions / Spent: £22 / Won £0 / Total -£22

      UK Lotto / Spent: £4 / Won: £0 / Total: -£4

      2016 Total: -£24

      Jan: -£22 Feb: £0 ~ Mar: £0 ~ April: £0 ~ May: £0 ~ June: £0 ~ July: £2

       

      EuroMillions = £2 Line / Played: x11 [old price] 

      EuroMillions = £2.50 Line / Played: x0

      UK Lotto = £2 Line / Played x2

        Nope- those numbers you " don't like" could be the numbers that bring it home.

          A lot pf QP players are never satisfied with their numbers because they don't know what they want.

            NO. I have seen some unproportional combinations getting drawn. All high numbers, all low numbers etc

            That money's gone fo ever

              I almost always buy another when the Power/Mega ball matches one of the five, but most of my wins have been 0+1 or 1+1 in that very case.  It's just a silly feeling, a superstition.  I know intellectually that it has as good of a chance as any other, but...

                Maybe knowing two chances are better than one, you just need a reason to buy more than one. 

                When you do win something, is it usually the first or second one that wins?

                  I've won a few times on my "bad" ticket, usually $12-14 dollars.  I also buy another if the clerk doesn't do the multiplier or the JP/cash option I asked for, but that's been a while b/c I now carry play slips in my vehicle in a Texas Lotto "wallet" they hand out.

                  I really don't like buying more tickets/lines than I intended to buy.  I've got two lines for tonight's PB drawing as well as the Texas Lottery, though.   Dunno why, just cashed in a couple of small winners and had enough money for it and a few bucks left over.

                    I would never buy just one ticket...so if I felt a bad vibe from the lines....there would be ATLEAST one more I coul have 'hopes' for Approve

                        I have done that several times.  But once I bought a ticket and when I looked at the numbers I just yelled, "It gave me these stupid numbers!"  lol.  But I won a few dollars off of it lol.

                            Learned to not allow one ticket with bad vibes, to create a bad mood. So yup, I pick my own numbers and live with the winning consequences :)

                             Thanks be to the giving numbers: 1621,912,119 02014

                              Well, 15 was one of the winning numbers for the 10/9 draw, so your ticket was partway there.
