If you play your own numbers, How many games do you play?  I play 3 games (every drawing) MM, PB and RC (state game)  My thinking is sooner or later the numbers will drop in either game.  The closest I came was PB in July, I had 2 white numbers and the extra number which was $35 (then I was off by 1 number of the remaining 3 numbers)

     I have read plenty of stories in LP and elsewhere where players have chased the same numbers for over 20 years and finally hit. There are LP players who have played the same numbers for over 20 years and never hit.

      I usually only play Megamillions but broke my rule last week and played Powerball too. 

      I think I'm getting tired of playing my own numbers.  I did win $150 the Summer of 2013 (3 numbers + Megaball) under the old matrix but it had been the first time I had played those specific numbers.  Been playing my numbers since then and gotten basically nothing.  Think I'm going to try QP for a while.

        I have been playing my own numbers for a very long time for MM and PB.  The max that I have won is $150.00 I believe 3 times so far.  I also play quick picks and scratch-off to hopefully round out the money that I'm losing every week.  I have my doubts that my own numbers will ever come out because I now think that the lottery looks for the least played set of numbers to be the winning jackpot numbers.  How, I don't know, but I continue to play anyway.

          I play Powerball, Mega Millions and Cash 5. I play one self-pick and one quick-pick per draw. I don't play PB or MM when the pot is under $100M, nor Cash 5 when it's under $100K. Sometimes I won't play MM until it reaches $200M. I didn't like it when MM expanded their matrix, so if I decide to dump a game, MM will get the axe.

            I tend to play my own numbers. Sometimes I will buy a quick pick if I don't want to bother picking numbers though. I play Hot Lotto, Weekly Grand and Wild Card. I haven't played MM or PB in months.

              I meant to add that I play MM & PB Mass Cash and Megabucks Doubler but I had to start my job Big Grin  . The first 2 on a consistent basis with no megapliers and powerplay and using numbers that I choose every year. I dump them after a year. And no, non of my past numbers have won anything after dumping them. Yet.
