When it came to playing the lottery?

Personally: l was once told to play - 1,2,3,4 5 & the Mega # 6. Can't say for certain whether it's good or bad- but weird perhaps.

     I would love to hear from Big winners. For example: " Shut up and take the Lump Sum" or " Take the payments and make mistakes your first and second years."  Party

     I am trying to not take myself seriously. Tongue in cheek so to speak.

      Some people say play the same number until it hits, (Pick 3), then others do some research and say a certain number hasn't hit in three years or so.

      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.

        playing COLD numbers, waiting for them to hit, is BAD advice.

                  You forgot to mention Fl, NJ,NY who are almost always in the thick of things Saylorgirl. California is " just going through a lucky streakBig Smile" ..things will settle down and some other States will have winners. Then California will start cranking out its winners once again- its how its done, its the natural progression of things moving forward.Banana

                      Best lottery advice I received was from a friend who told me to never conisder playing the lottery to be more than PLAYING the lottery. I think I was 17 when I was told this and it took a couple of years to get the meaning.

                      Worst lottery advice received:  Dont buy tickets from a clerk at the end of their shift. (I never was told WHY that was... therefore it falls under worst advice)

                        The worst - that guy out of Florida who said 'to win you have to spend more' - and yes I know he won, but I count that as luck.

                            Worst -

                            you are wasting your time

                            those are a waste of money

                            save your money, you can't win

                            you are never going to win

                             - yeah right -

                             

                            Best -

                            I haven't had any best advice yet that I can remember as outstanding or memorable.

                            Oh that 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 thing I think goes in the bad advice category unless you like sharing. No Nod

                              Bad advice don't play that number no one is seeing it in their workouts or play that ticket no one ever hit it any way. Don't buy the tickets other players reject because they feel the retailer mess- up their numbers when they are one who calling out the numbers to the clerk with a long list.                                                                             Best lottery advice, follow your own mind!
