I just saw a commercial for Powerball here in Michigan that has been running a lot over the week. Tonight, I noticed the commercial had a lady holding a ticket with two lines of numbers on it. Has anyone ever tried playing numbers from a ticket on a lottery commercial/tv show/movie? I think the tv show Lost had winning ticket numbers in the show. I don't know if anyone won though by playing those numbers when they came up. 

A while ago, someone posted a story on here about the unluckest lucky man. I admit, I tried playing those numbers for a couple weeks.

      I played the numbers from Lost until a news item came out that said thousands of people were playing those numbers. Which meant that even if those numbers did come up, you'd have to share it with so many people you'd be lucky if you even got the cost for the ticket back. Figured out that every number that's been even mildly sensationalized gets played by a bunch of people thinking they're the only ones. Won't even play numbers from a fortune cookie after that lottery fiasco. Worse than having to split with so many people were the lottery officials thinking they had cheated. Unless numbers come to me in a dream, I'm sticking with QPs.

          Imagine how many people watch that commercial and imagine how many play those numbers.

          The jackpot will only be a few thousand dollars if those numbers hit.

            Poo Nanny,

            People here on LP were playing the Lost numbers for a while. They're posted somewhere in the archived threads.

            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.

                            l don't watch TV  that much * too many commercials, and Only play my Own numbers. If and when l lose, l know it was because of my own doing.

                            People who say it cannot be done should not interrupt those who are doing it- George Bernard Shaw.

                              Such numbers have the same chance as any other set of numbers, no more or no less.

                              We all get a lot out of lotteries!
