Lets say you're playing a play 6 game, would you change the same numbers you have been playing if you hit 3 numbers? 4 numbers? 5 numbers? Or keep the numbers the same only until you hit all 6 numbers?

    If they are your favorite "Lucky" numbers, keep playing them.  If they are numbers generated by a lottery system, change them.

      I play by subscription, so I just renew my subscription every year and I just keep the same numbers. I could change my numbers on renewal, but I like to keep the same numbers. I haven't won any big prizes, but lots of little prizes.

      We all get a lot out of lotteries!

        All Pick4, Pick5, & Jackpot Games have combinations of numbers that hit more often than others Barr not.  You just have to find them, and go from there.  It should be noted that each game has it's own set of numbers - IL Pick4 will not have the same set as OH Pick4.

        Example Illinois Pick4 - The 2 top sets of boxed numbers going back to 01/01/11 are found in my Groups 63 & 96 both hitting 16 times.

        Good Luck & Best Wishes To ALL........................................................................

        Bottom Line is that if you find a game & a set of numbers that come in together as a Group; they will eventually all hit in a single drawing (most of the time) as long as the matrix of the game does not change.

          I would keep playing them until they all hit.  I keep seeing where people who did that won.  You can always use your smaller wins to buy another line of numbers for the same game.  Good luck to us all.

            I've been playing one set of lucky (not!) numbers since 1993.  I avoid memorizing any other numbers I play so that I'm not afraid I'll see them come up if I don't continue to play them. 

            That's for pick 5 or 5+1 games.  I have no idea how to win Pick 3 or 4.

              I change my numbers almost daily.  I follow the current trend / repeating numbers / pairs.  My favorite game is Wisconsin's Super cash.  Its a daily game which gives me lots of input for my next pick.  Its a hobby for me, have I won the jackpot yet?  No...But I'm having fun.

                i too have a subscription going. though i run 2 pools, using all 45 of the possible numbers so i get  ea number covered once.  half lf them in 1 pool and the other half in pool 2.  the 2nd pool keeps winning , i mean about $160 more than pool one!

                i may change pools 1 numbers if by the end of the year the difference doesnt get  better,  but i wont be changing pool 2's numbers any time soon

                2014 = -1016; 2015= -1409; 2016 JAN = -106; FEB= -81; MAR= -131; APR= - 87: MAY= -91; JUN= -39; JUL=-134; AUG= -124; SEP = -123; OCT= -84  NOV=- 73 TOT= -3498

                  It doesn't matter. Your chances are the same no matter what numbers you choose. The chances are the same even if you choose 1,2,3,4,5 and 1. How many times has that won? Your chances would even be the same if all 6 numbers won. You are only playing against the odds. That makes me wonder why someone would play a game where the odds 276 million to 1 when they could play something like the Super Lotto where the odds are 40 million to 1. How much money do you need? The new $30 Calif. scratcher is 3 million to 1 for $10M. That's about $3.5M net. $750,000 cash at 1.5M to 1???????

                      Because 2nd place odds for a million bucks are 18M for MM and 11M for PB which makes it easier to win one of them than Super Lotto.  Plus, many of us don't have a good state lottery to play including me here in Idaho.

                          COLUMBIA, SC (November 3, 2015) – A Chester couple has won South Carolina’s largest Mega Millions® prize to date. They cashed in the winning ticket worth $5 MILLION yesterday.  “I had her (his girlfriend) read off the numbers one at a time,” he said, recognizing 17, 41, 51, 53, and 56 as the numbers he’s played for years.

                            Lets say you're playing a play 6 game, would you change the same numbers you have been playing if you hit 3 numbers? 4 numbers? 5 numbers? Or keep the numbers the same only until you hit all 6 numbers?

                            Normally I play my combinations once.
