I don't know if I would actually call this a superstition, but every couple of months or so the thought comes to me that I need to collect any none winning lottery tickets that I have around the house, go to the store, use the scanner to double check them and throw them out before the next draw.


As well, I'm sure everyone who has a regular set on numbers they play has the superstition that if they forget to play, their numbers will come up.

My superstition is that if the clerk has a ugly unhappy mug, then my quickpicks (freeplays) are definately going to be losers.

    There are 4 places I normally buy my lottery tickets from. Sometimes when the jackpot gets high, I'll buy somewhere I don't buy from or have never bought from before. Another is if I'm buying multiple quick picks for a drawing, I'll buy each one at a different store instead of getting them all at once. Hasn't worked for me yet, but I keep trying.

        My superstition.....if I buy a winning scratch-off-I cannot cash it in at the same store. I have to go to a different location.


        I know people who do that with casinos in Vegas...if they win in one, they make it a point to go somewhere else next times, so as not to give the first one a chance to win it back - which happens all too often.


        Whenever I get a palindromic number at the checkout I play it. One cashier told me when she sees one all day long she playes it!

        Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.


        There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.
