As some of you know, Iliya Bluskov offers the same win guarantee as Gail Howard, but in fewer tickets.

Is that the case with every wheel he offers vs every wheel Gail offers?

Does that mean all of Gail's wheels are inferior?

Is there really a numero uno, or is this just a case of there being two top dogs?

    I saw a reviewer of a Iliya Bluskov book on Amazon.com write that Iliya Bluskov considered Gail Howard's wheels not being the best and that he was correct.

    That would probably mean that many of Bluskovs wheels gives a better guarantee.

      Yea, that's all I've heard too so far. I just wanna know if he beats her with every wheel, concerning fewer tickets needed. I'd rather buy just one of their wheeling books than from both authors. Gails wheels can't be bad though, considering the jackpot winners under her belt. Sometimes I just hate choices.

        I will probably buy Bluskov's book since it's considered almost a canon among wheeling fans.

          Bluskov's book is great, and is the basis for many of Lottery Post's Abbreviated wheels.  Yes, they are superior to Howard's, since the object of an abbreviated wheel is to achieve a certain guarantee in the least number of tickets.

            That's what I'm starting to believe, and judging by the email response from Gail's company, Bluskov is the new wonderkid on the block. I changed my mind however. I will just buy from both authors. Leave not one stone unturned.

            Thanx for the replies.

              The Bluskov book has been around since 2001.

                I think it's 2002, but who's counting... and that's what I replied to Gail's company saying. What I didn't add is that I don't believe Bluskov is/was campaigning as hard to market his product like Gail is/was. I think there is a jackpot winner for Bluskov. Dunno how credible it is though. Todd, you may wanna open a thread for proven Bluskov jackpot winners. I know I'd like to see that.

                      It's an excellent set of wheels, and they are available for online use right here at Lottery Post, on the Wheels page.

                        Todd:

                        Is there a good wheel that will give the straight combinations for Pick 3.  Let's say you enter 0 through 8 and get the straight combinations for those nine numbers?

                          Oh when I said "Bluskov is the new wonderkid on the block", I meant he is the last wheel maker so far (after Gail Howard) to produce such great economical wheels.

                          After much perusing between Gail's wheels and Bluskovs wheels, I was just about to buy Bluskov's book and Gail's Wheel Five To Win only. But I decided to also buy Gail's Wheel A Fortune too. Simply cos since luck has a lot to do with winning, I figured after first using Bluskov's pick 6 wheels and "I" flop, maybe just maybe Gail's pick 6 wheels will provide some luck, so that is my reasoning... buying all three books.

                          I wish Bluskov would make a pick 5 wheel book.

                            Being a diehard Gail Howard fan, you must have all her books by now.
