September 15, 2005, 6:08 pmpick 3 odds
I have copied the last 1,000 draws for the Washington state pick three (3) daily game and if my copying and math is correct, I have drawn the following conclusions
In the last 1,000 pick three (3) draws for Washington State there were 368 combinations of numbers which were not drawn
Like 000, 002, 004, 010 and so on
There was 373 combinations of numbers which were drawn only one time
Like 001, 005, 007, 010 and so on
There were 173 combinations of numbers which were drawn 2 times
Like 006, 021, 029 and so on
And 65 combinations numbers which were drawn 3 times
Like 018, 067, 093 and so on
And 17 combinations of numbers which were drawn 4 times
Like 106, 252, 341 and so on
And 3 combinations of numbers which were drawn 5 times
288, 551, and 626
And 1 combination of numbers which were drawn 6 times 224
Which means to me that if my favorite number is 224 and I played it for all one thousand draws, it would have cost me $1,000 and I would have won 6 times for a profit of $2,000,
How-ever if my favorite number is 000 it would have cost me $1,000 with no return, for it was never selected in those 1,000 draws.
All this to say thirty six (36) percent of the numbers in the last 1,000 draws were not selected.
So if I were betting that a number had not been drawn for (lets say) a thousand draws, I might think it is due soon and start betting it, there is a probability it will not be drawn even in 3,000 draws
I am not sure what this means to me for my betting selections.
Should I not bet or should I bet multiples of number combinations.

there have been a number of pools formed some successful and others ridden with worry and distrust, all we have to do is read the news to see. no matter how honest and trust-worthy they are i would prefer to warn people of the possible pitfalls, so if they choose to join they may make better precautions to insure proper participation and dispursal of funds.
August 30, 2005, 6:07 pmwon pick three
yesterday i won $750 in the wash. pick three daily game
because i only go to town twice a week i had one weekly ticket and one for five days and one for three days, so i just got lucky in that all the tickets were still good there was another ticket that expired the day before
i have been playing for two weeks and had invested $200
no real system just picked three numbers and kept playing, so just dumb luck

if it is true that most lotteries are won with quick picks why buy a system.
if a system truly worked why would anyone sell it and reduce their opportunity to win most of the time
if a person had a system that worked they probably would have won already and would not need to sell it for income
if their was a system that worked it seems the lottery officials would know about it and make corrections.
August 16, 2005, 6:35 pmcollecting anonymously
why is it each time i read of someone winning the lottery and then filing for bankruptcy it has to do with their relatives.
complete secrecy is the answer as far as i am concerned.
don't give relatives reason to hire hitmen or to beg and plead for your winnings.
take the money as anonymously as possible, set up trusts to protect from relatives and beggars, insulate as much as you can.
there are people good people who will still think it is free money to you and you are required to share
August 16, 2005, 6:31 pmcollecting winnings
i would be concerned about online lotteries in that there is no power to make them pay.
a person might have to sue to collect and then it may not be enforceable.
an online business can just fade away without being responsible.
at least the state lotteries are guaranteed to pay your winnings
August 15, 2005, 7:02 pmthings to believe in
If you want to believe in something, then believe in it.
Just because something isn’t true, is no reason you can’t believe in it.
Sometimes the things that may or may not be true are the things that a man needs to believe in the most.
That people are basically good;
That honor, courage and virtue mean everything;
That power and money,
Money and power mean nothing;
That good always triumphs over evil;
That love ----- true love never dies.
Doesn’t matter true or not, a man should believe in those things. Because ---- those are the things worth believing in.

if i remember correctly, in the sixties a person discovered uranium and received about $65,000,000 but with high living and poor planning he soon filed for bankruptcy leaving many service people short in their account receivables

does aanyone know if you have to set up a trust to collect winnings before you win or can it be done after in order to collect anonymously

if i didn't believe in winning, then it would not make sense to play
and if i play, which i am, there should be a plan in place so a person might not be overwhelmed by the sudden cash.
and it is still cheaper and more rewarding for me than movies
the idea of winning fills my spare time with visions of what might be.
July 28, 2005, 10:02 pmhow often to purchase
i live in a small town where if a person were to win, everyone in the area would know about it. so i go to a place twenty miles away to purchase tickets and i can't always get there for each draw so buying for a month at a time assures a ticket for each draw sometimes when i am in that community i may purchase a ticket for that evenings draw
July 28, 2005, 7:52 pmhow many times to play
i purchase for ten draws at a time which works out to about one months worth
i would like to see mm and pb combine and have a drawing everyday

if the drawing system is truly random and each drawing has no memoty of what was drawn before, how can there be a ststem that works to profit you.
if anyone had a system that would make a profit, then the lotteries would no longer exist.
if someone had a system, if they told even one person it is likely the news would spread around the world. if they felt the need to tell someone for a good reason it is likely the next person would also feel the need to tell
