noise-gate, 

Old Vegas joke. A high roller sees a good looking young girl on a roulette game, gives her a $100  chip and says, "Bet your age."

She puts it on 26, the ball lands on 36 and she passes put.

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.

            Preface: I only play MM & PB

            This question reminds me of a story I read last year:

            Google, "Albuquerque Man Wins 15 Prizes in One Mega Millions Drawing" (had to remove link, no link privileges yet)

             

            // From the article on megamillions // 

            Winner Played Ages as Lucky Numbers … Again and Again

            For the July 8 drawing, Traub purchased five plays on three tickets for a total of 15 plays.
            On every play, Traub used the ages of his four youngest children and his wife – 14, 19, 25, 27 and 49 – as his white ball numbers. To complete the plays, Traub selected one from each of the game’s 15 yellow Mega Balls.

            The winning numbers on July 8 were 14, 25, 27, 48 and 49 and the yellow Mega Ball of 9.
            On 14 plays, Traub matched four white ball numbers to win 14 prizes of $500 each, totaling $7,000. On one play, he matched four white ball numbers and the yellow Mega Ball to win $5,000. Traub’s winnings came to $12,000, but his good fortune didn’t end there.

            $12,000 Jumps to $60,000

            Traub added the game’s Megaplier feature to each play. The $1-per play feature multiples non-jackpot prizes between two and five times, depending on the multiplier drawn. On July 8, the number 5 was drawn as the multiplier. Traub’s winnings went from $12,000 to $60,000. 

             

            After reading that, I rounded up all the birthdays and ages of family members, and tried making a few worthwhile combinations out of them.  The problem with anything related to a date (at least for me), is that you generally end up with something that is either too low or unplayable (i.e. one or more numbers that are greater than 75).

            I lost a lot of money in the beginning playing like I believed in luck or fate. Numbers that were special to me never did a <snip> thing for me ;) It certainly worked out for the guy in the story though.. The beauty of how he played it is that the numbers in his set would change five times a year, so at least he wasn't playing the same combo over and over again.

              How did that turn out for you? You know: Anniversary, birthday, baptism, graduation dates/numbers related to self, children and the like? If you have used or been using them, have you won " something" however small? Would be interesting to find out.

                I don't, I know players who do. my only advice is not to limit oneself
                to birthdates, anniversary's, graduations or any date there off for
                lottery drawings.
