Filled out a lottery slip, given it another look and decided that for some reason the numbers don't gel with you.So you discard that slip, fill out another and when those numbers don't come through for you that night, you start reflecting back on the " original" slip you filled out and tossed and wonder what if " that was the winning ticket or in less cases- you won a few grand?" Particularly if you did not write down those original numbers on a separate piece of paper?

Or are you the person that says " No 2nd thoughts on my numbers?" - hand in the slip, get your ticket and walk away: Hoping for the best?

    If you're constantly doubting your numbers maybe you should just play a quick pick :)

        lottolaughs,

        Before Primm opened, when Nipton was the place to play lotto for people from Vegas, I saw a few Koreans play quick picks and when they looked at their tickets they said, "Computer don't want me win."

        Green laugh

        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.

            I agree on not changing the numbers. It will always come back to bite at some point the more you do it. As they say on T.V. regarding that rotisserie cooker...'set it and forget it'.

             

            L.L.

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

            There are seven days in the week...'Someday' isn't one of them.

              Your first impression is always your best.

              2nd guessing will only lead to another "but what if I did it this way?" and on and on.

              Write down your 2nd guesses for awhile and check them and you'll see.

                No, I pick my numbers quite carefully so I don't have second thoughts about them.  I just fill in the slip and hand it in, leaving it to fate.

                            Those words remind me of Albert Finney saying to Jason Bourne" Do you commit to the programme" before having his head dunked beneath the water. .
                            Yeah l guess you have to commit when all is said and done.

                              A lotta people don't like making committments.

                              It's like the the ham and eggs on your plate.

                              The chicken made a contribution.

                              The pig made a committment.
