I always get at least one number every Jackpot Drawing, does this mean anything?

I've been playing mostly the Powerball drawings on a weekly basis for the last month & a half. Ive noticed once I started and kinda committed to it, that every drawing I play since the time I started at least one number on my ticket is drawn in the winning numbers. Sometimes I choose the numbers myself, or I may quickpick, even when I play my state lotto, take 5, cash 4 life, and even Mega, the same thing happens, one number on my ticket is in the winning numbers. Its somewhat frustrating to me because I think it means that its true you can pick the winning numbers. But having said that Ive played maybe more, if not not the same amount of quickpicks and it still happens. Sometimes its the bonus number, but most of the time its one of the numbers in the draw. 

When I ask non lottery people about this, they look at me like im insane for asking such a question. I'm just wondering what you all think, is it just a coincidence?, is it "fate"/universe trying to tell me something, or does it mean that I really can pick the winning numbers?, or am i just insane?? thanks.

    As the good reverend said, "Keep Hope Alive". You are not insane. 

     Look on the back of the play slip for the odds of winning.

        No matter the game the most common result is you will get whatever doesn't pay.

        In a Pick 5, 0 or 1, etc.....

        Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any. So many systems, so many theories, so few jackpot winners. 

        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.

          It means you really need to work on your game plan. That's what it means. You've been playing long enough to know how to capture two numbers by now. Not trying to be mean but just pointing out the obvious.

            Buy another 25 tickets with all of the numbers that aren't on the ticket you were already planning to buy. Or just keep playing for 50 million years and count on the law of averages if you want all of the numbers on one ticket.

              Well my question to you is how many lines do you play?

              And in those lines how many unique numbers are contained as well as which do you use more than once in those lines?

              Typically I play 20 unique numbers on pick5 on four lines and 25 on the 5+1 lottery on five lines.

              Seldom do I lose, I almost always get at least a 2/5 on pick 5 and at least one 3/5 per week on pick5.

              The other draw game has 8 more numbers plus mega ball so I've yet to score a 3/5 +1.

                I don't think it means anything. If you're buying several tickets, it's not odd to see one or two numbers every time, especially if you buy quick picks.
