    I was playing a line for a few weeks on mega, then I kinda let it slide and I was doing QPs. I actually just thought about the line again since the mega millions is all over news and everywhere else I look now... Maybe I'll give it a go this week. 

    I honestly don't have a go to line on PB. it's one game I've played the least.

      My self-picked tickets are nearly as random as quick picks. I literally just bubble in the first numbers that come to mind.

        Do you think anyone using a bonus number higher than 15 three years ago is still using it?

          If it's  between 16 and 26 then they could still use it, for Powerball.

            About a month, l change them up from time to time.l also pick my own numbers using the " convert words to numbers " feature that LP offers. Most of the words l put down are family & friends related, they mean a lot to me, so when l lose which is often - l don't feel bad. However if & when l do hit it & hit it big, l know who l will be celebrating with. Common sense..right? Smile

              I've always picked my numbers except when I didn't have the time and then I might buy a couple of QPs to just be in the game.

                I wasn't aware of the "convert words to numbers" calculator.  But I have a phrase that has been going through my head for weeks now, so I decided to play the 2 sets it generated for that phrase. 

                It says this method is highly scientific, so I expect to win tonight.

                  since megamillions was introduced in california in the mid 2000s. ive played the same numbers each and every drawing till things changed and i had to pick different numbers. 

                  same with the powerball.

                    I put more than five years.  If I had it to do all over again, I would have done different set every time, so if I had to stop I could.   I don't dare stop after 12 years. Every time they change the matrix, I think now I have to start all over, but then the lady who won a portion of the 1.5 billion gave me hope.  The matrix had just changed for her and she won almost immediately after playing for 7 years.   So, I look at it differently, maybe if the matrix had never changed, she most likely would have never won, same goes for me and others who play same numbers for YEARS.

                      Sirius players try and find an edge.  Some poeple are afraid to sotp after 12 years.  others are afraid to stop after 6 years.  What is the correct amount of time frame to be to stop and be upset?

                          When you can't afford it anymore (loss of a job, less pay)...that's the only time I would stop.

                              I have 3 sets that I changed at the last matrix change and then I add sets of my picks if the JP is high enough but the added picks always change.

                              So three sets for however long and then, depending on the JP, a couple few more of my picks and then maybe 2 or 3 QPs.

                              I just got $10 bucks with one of my "extra pick" tickets and wont be playing those numbers unless they come up as QPs.

                              I don't remember how much I have won on my 3 sets but I know it was $25 OR Less.
