and it's gotten to me...but for all players out there, perseverence and patience pays off in the long run, not the short term.  Very simililar to the stock market.  If I was looking for short term rewards I would have quit this game years ago.

I've seen fellow players take hiatus from the game only to come back and start winning again.

My advice to new players is to hang in there...it's a brutal game (1000-1 odds against you with the state taking 50% of those odds) and you might win three times in a month and go three months without winning.

I'm very close to the hiatus stage but have been close enough to keep me from throwing in the towel.  Don't get discouraged...it's a streaky game.

Good luck to my fellow players in this most difficult game.

      Thanks Daisy...and Undress, that p's me off the most when you get the first two digits right and the the third wrong...happened to me today which prompted my post.

      However it is a game and we all must keep that in mind.

        Frustration!!!

        I been playing 239 straight for two months..stopped playing it to focus on triples! It hits straight today ohio midday! I didn't want to give up on the number but the same time I had to keep to my budget and play triples..once a triple hits in ohio, I am never chasing them again!!!

         

        :)

        have a great winning day!

          Anyone else chase triples?  How often do you expect them in your state..?  I dont play them.  I often get two of the three digits right and that is frustration enough.  I had rather continue to get close than go for triples for days ...  Once the triples hit, well then that is just one day lost for a while..

              I've been out of the game myself for almost the whole summer (here in michigan of course lol, 3-4 months?) and my game along with the rest of my family members is heating up to the point where this volcano might erupt (i meant that as a winning streak kinda way)

              My number for dog indeed came out yesterday eve, i didn't bother checking the # books once again afterwards because i was a little angry it didn't show up as planned.....when in actuallity, it did, came out as 414 i believe in Ohio eve 9/7/04....How u ask? it came out as WHITE dog. Theres white & black dog along with just dog in only one of the books, either 3 wise men or red devil....i had this grimy feeling of one of those 2 showing rather then the ones i normally play....I was right once again as usuall

              I don't expect anyone to believe me, but if you followed me the most, u would know i am telling the truth, check the 2 books yourself for proof if u don't believe me.

                  triples in theory come evey 90 days..so after a 100 days I start playing them more..its been 21 1/2 weeks since a triple in ohio..so it will come soon enough!

                  have a great winning day!

                    Rick,

                    I commiserate with you. It does indeed get very frustrating when you are often getting 2 digits of the three. Then it also gets frustrating when your state's game seems to go into "weird mode" all of a sudden and start doing things for a period that are all out of statistical probabilities.

                    Sometimes you wonder why you waste all kinds of time trying to get it "right", when it seems like you are just as well off buying a lousy quick pick.
