When/if you play games where you get to pick numbers, such as keno, roulette, or perhaps even lottery tickets....what numbers do you pick?

In keno, I'll sometimes just do random numbers, the "quick pick". Other times I'll choose numbers that are all balled up together. I don't frequently play roulette, but if/when I do, I prefer the numbers 8 or 20. I don't play lottery tickets.


So what numbers do you pick? Is there any reason why? Do you always pick the same numbers or do you switch it up from time to time? Feel free to share your lucky or perhaps unlucky numbers here, especially if you pick differing numbers frequently.

This is a safe space. Please don't demean others here. This thread is for the discussion of numbers people pick.

In the Lottery, I play numbers that already showed up in other games. For instance, 8,9,23 were the first numbers on a particular Fantasy 5
For Play 4, I played 8923 box for both drawings for a week. That week, 8293(Or something similar showed up! :D I won $100! :D
Guy "won" less than his bet and the slot machine had the audacity to tell him he got a big win! SMH! The edit button is as good as gold! :D When in doubt, ask an Admin first! :D

I play Bingo often. One of the games is Pick 8. You get two sets of 8 numbers from 1 to 75 for $1. I always pick 1, 4, 9, 16, 25, 36, 49, and 64 for one set and 4, 8, 15, 16, 23, 42, 47, and 69 for the other set.

I have no lucky numbers, but I share Mipletís love of square numbers.

If I play keno, I just pick the first or last numbers consecutively. Itís a bonus when other players get agitated at my picks.

If I play lottery, which is about once every 2 years, I prefer quick pick because Iíd have to split the jackpot 100 ways if I won with consecutive numbers.
I heart Crystal Math.

In Roulette I always cover #1. In bingo I usually use birthdates and anniversaries. In the lottery i always choose a number over 31. I heard there's less of a chance of sharing a jackpot if you pick at least one number over 31 because most/many people use birth dates and anniversaries that can only go up to 31 calendar days.

My favorite number is 13, but I rarely select it in any gambling activity.

The puny palindromic prime. Iím not going to adopt it as a lucky number, though.

They asked me how well I understood theoretical physics. I said I had a theoretical degree in physics. They said welcome aboard.

I like prime numbers, especially 5 and 23.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.
