No that's not true, each draw is a unique, random event.
I've heard that if you play the same numbers every week for 5 years that eventually your numbers will win the lottery. Is it true?
No. Think about how much money would you have saved in those 5 years of playing.
No. I know people who have been playing the same numbers for much longer and still haven't won. The odds of winning a six number lottery is 1 in 13,983,816. If you divide that by 365 days, it would take over 38,000 years for each possible combination to come up. And that doesn't include possibility of some duplicate sets of numbers coming up.
I don't know how the US lottery works. Here in the UK the mechanisms for improving your likelihood of winning are:
Make multiple entries and cover as many possibilities as you can (don't duplicate numbers).
Use numbers spread over the entire range available (it won't make you more likely to win, but it will reduce the risk you having to share the jackpot (most people choose numbers in the bottom half of the draw).
It is a sobering thought that if you buy a lottery ticket with a single entry on a Monday, you are 17,000 times more likely to die before the day of the draw, than win the jackpot.
Maybe money isnt all its cracked up to b after all.
Depends on what you mean by "winning".
Some lotteries, if you match a couple numbers you win another ticket or a couple dollars.
