            You haven't played them long enough.

            Think of it this way, you like baseball- no- you love baseball.Folks go to the game hoping someday to catch the ball in the stands- just because you have not caught one since 2005, does one say " l am giving up on the game because there is zero chance l will ever catching one ?"..

            See?

              rowlettewheel,

              Some state lottery sites let you search sets of numbers to see if they've ever hit. Illinois had this before Northstar took over but not now.

              On the Pick 5 game you could do searches all night every night and never see 5 hits on one set of numbers. The only time I ever saw one was when I had searched for known draws.

              noise-gate,

              True what you say but when the day comes that you no longer bring a glove to the stadium because you've never got a ball is the day you've stopped being an optimist!

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

              Lep

              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.

                      Just wondering, do you play every drawing, even when it's a really low jackpot? Also, you might want to add number sets that change every drawing and some quick picks. I'm a person thinks that the lottery looks for the least played number sets. So that is why I said to expand by playing numbers that change every drawing and quick picks.

                          You should tweek your numbers.  Read the stats. Pick numbers that fall all the time. And some that are overdue. Do a good mix of odd , even numbers.Smile

                              yes you should hit in less than 24yrs

                              here is a Example:

                               

                              Richard McMurry and his wife Shirley are lifelong Bloomington residents and have been playing the same six numbers in Hoosier Lotto for as long as the game has been around, since 1990.  Their $2 weekly purchase paid off when all six of their hand-picked, birthday-related numbers were drawn as the winning numbers in the Oct. 30 drawing. The Oct. 30 Hoosier Lotto numbers were: 3-7-15-16-41-43.

                              wins $3.5 million in Hoosier Lotto
