Do you use the same numbers every draw?

Whatever the numbers game you play, whether it's pick 2-3-4-5-6 or 5+1, do you use the same numbers for every draw or do you change numbers or get quick pick?

    I change it up every draw. I'll use LP's RNG, then next time do QP's. Then next time just pick numbers as I fill out the play slip. Whatever I feel like at the moment.

    Only on All or Nothing and Triple Chance, I always do QP's.

      IMHO, people who track a lottery game history in detail know that the outputs of the mechanical ball machines are 'in motion.'
      Some integers repeat, but the main body is 'moving forward' at a variable pace.
      So, the question is - analyze results, pick a set of integers and play them for several drawings, or, analyze results and try to second-guess what the next winning combo might be.
      I think it depends on the game.
      I usually replay Texas Lotto choices for several drawings. I keep a record of results and modify my plays accordingly.
      Pick 3/4 need to be changed after each drawing.
      Cash 5 is difficult given frequent repeats.
      I usually replay Two-Step play, although I change the Bonus ball.
      It's a mystery but a lot of fun.

        I thought about sticking with the same numbers. But, when statisticians say a single set of numbers with odds of 1:235,000,000 or 1:1,400,000 can take thousands of years to hit a jackpot, I had to question the validity of sticking with same sets of numbers.

        however, I think in the scheme of things it makes more sense to just stick to one game. Atleast if you switch it up with one game, you're not trying to conquer various odds. 

        What gets me is, my favorite numbers in a search history, never revealed a jackpot hit in certain games. That's what boggles me. Why aren't the numbers I'm picking matching all 5? Even if you look up a recent number draw, and then plug that into the numbers search...say for example megamilions or a pick 5+1...you'll see that the combination may have got 1 or 2 numbers numerous times, maybe even 3...months or years ago. But no jackpot until that particular draw. 

        I think one of these days I'll drop like $50-$60 on a number draw...completely picked myself, and see what happens. I hear of people dropping $50-100 on quick picks, but to me that's trusting the lotto machines to not be in favor of the house lol.

          Usually no but if I match no numbers then I sometimes use the same numbers for the next draw.

                    I play the same numbers on MADDOG'S MM and PB challenges. When I can afford to play again I will use those numbers but either on MM or Hot Lotto

                      I change numbers nearly every draw. I don't want a set of "pet" numbers where I'd have a major freak out if they hit when I didn't play. Once in a while, a quick pick, mostly my own picks.

                          I change #s for every draw, I played the same #set for over 10 years on the JC5 game, I used the last matrix change as a chance to bail out.

                          Didn't like being locked in B/C I couldn't miss a draw.

                           

                          Right now I have the same #s on C4L for 10 draws B/C I bought the advance ticket in Maryland and they couldn't give me different

                          for each draw. When that's over I'll change em every draw again.

                           

                          I bought LFL in Delaware and they were able to give different #s on 10 advance draws.
