    The solution to your particular problem is to quit picking the losing numbers. 

    When you were hunched over the counter filling out your playslip- did you at any time tell yourself that you going to win with those specific numbers? If you did, you were lying to yourself- its that simple. 

    If it brings you any comfort- there are millions of other lottery losers out there. 

    Great idea next time I'm going to try and pick some numbers that i think won't win instead of trying to pick the numbers that i think is going to win then maybe they will win Thumbs Up

      It's definitely not THRIFTY, because he only bought one ticket. Big Grin

        I like that idea, a kinda reverse psychology, maybe I'll try that next time I want more than just a QP.

              Thrifty doesn't play the lotto. He just dreams about it.

                haymaker,

                Sometimes I get a QP and then play another set of numbers using an Oakland Raiders flea-flicker approach to the QP, something like +1, +4, -6, +7, -2 applied to the QP numbers.

                Scared

                PS,

                Hasn't worked yet.

                Bang Head

                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.

                      See, fo' me, a numba I pick that won't work, would be a past lotto win.

                      Now, we bof know that if it won the jackpot, ain't neba gonna win agin.

                      So, now, what do I do?

                          Finally someone has got it. I have been trying to tell these folks, including that Prince fella that you have go think in reverse. Fill out your slip, take a gander at those numbers and discard the ticket and start again. but will they listen?- oh no! 

                          Yet here they are mourning about their misfortunes , hey- I tried.

                              Thrifty, I also bought just 1, and forgot the MP Thudnow I'm done til it's a least 300 again.

                              I play sporadically for any jackpot amount. Winning a $300M jackpot feels great, but winning a $20M jackpot would be amazing.
