December 14, 2015, 8:10 pmWild Card - for Dec. 16
After 2-1/2 years I suppose I should revive my blog. I am still very active with lottery. I just get more done when I'm not blogging. Imagine that! Wild Card is my main jackpot game so let's talk about that.
For the last game, Dec. 12, I was very pleased to see 17 & 18 come in together. It's been ages since those two showed up together (years, perhaps?) and I've been playing them lately. Luckily, I did play them on Saturday and managed to get 2 others right: 8 - 12 - 17 - 18. It's a great feeling getting 4 out of 5; however, I did not choose the right wild card so no big bux for me.
For Wednesday the 16th I am going to pick a couple of numbers from the 25-30 group. 26, 27, and 29 are most on my mind. I will make sure to play some lines with each of those numbers.
12 & 18 have gone twice now; will one of them repeat for a third? hmm.... If 12 or 18 do happen then I will put a 6 or a 24 or a 30 with it.
No. 10, the slowest number of 2015, is still being slow. Absent. Will we be seeing you anytime soon, No. 10? I won't hold my breath, but I think I'll have to play you on a few lines, just in case, throwing no. 4 into a line or two, maybe no. 16, 18 or 22.
Ok, more later.
May 17, 2013, 11:55 amIdaho Pick 3
It's time for a Medium pair to show its face. That means digits 4, 5, 6 in a pair: 45, 46, or 56
11 days out is a long time.
Digit 5 is now 6 days out, has been very slow this month, but I believe we will see it today. So I will focus on the pairs 45 and 56.
Also Digit 8 overdue, a week out. Could see that #8 today. I'll be playing #5 or #8; maybe both together.
In what I call the "Red" category (Absent), there are 20 pairs laying in wait. Red is going to pop today. I'll be choosing amongst these pairs:
01 12 23
05 24 14 25
28 37 39 18 38
45 56 46
48 58 57 69 59
Combinations most on my mind:
238 245 258 256 235 248
145 457 458 569
April 7, 2013, 12:26 pmWild Card 4/6/13
1 11 18 23 31
Queen of Clubs
If I'd only played #1 with #11 last night, I might've had that jackpot. I'm thinking that roaring headache might've interfered just a little with choosing the lovely #1. I had 18 and 23, cos they were meant to be together. Had 31 on another line with 11. Had the necessary lady, Queen of Clubs, too. Close but no champagne.
Yet. I will do it!
February 26, 2013, 12:00 amI Could Just Cry.
Idaho Pick 3. Tonight. Those Double 2's have been absent for so long, so I started playing 'em a couple weeks ago. I played 225 SEVERAL TIMES only a week ago.
So today it occurred to me: Hey, wouldn't it be weird if the Double 2's happened and it was a Date Match, 225?
But I never bought the ticket. I thought that would be JUST SILLY. SILLY, SILLY, a bit too coincidental. Ha.
Exact Date Match happens how often... twice a year, maybe?
So there goes my money. I'm betting someone else was smart enough to stare Coincidence in the face and laugh, all the way to the bank. Good for them.
January 13, 2013, 12:54 amI Did It! (Sort of.) Wild Card!
Got 4 out of 5 on Wild Card tonight plus the correct card.
My numbers: 3 - 14 - 16 - 21 - 24 Jack of Diamonds
Winning no's: 3 - 14 - 16 - 21 - 26 Jack of Diamonds
I was just 2 numbers off from the big 'un.
It's been a long time since I posted on the blog. I've been busy studying, strategizing. I've been close on Wild Card for months, and always - choosing my own numbers. Tonight, "almost".
The jackpot rolls over again, now at $590,000. Will I give it a try on Wednesday? Hmm...
August 18, 2012, 10:25 pmWild Card 2 at $500K
So, how exciting - Wild Card jackpot now at $500,000! This doesn't happen very often... and I made sure to get my tickets.
If you play Wild Card I'm wondering how you strategized tonight.
I played a lot of #21 again, the longest-out number. At 4 months absent, it is sure to pop up one of these days; er, nights. If it happens tonight, I'll have a good chance of getting something good out of it; if it doesn't happen tonight, I will be playing it again until it does happen.
I felt unsure of how the spread would go tonight... more numbers at the beginning, more in the middle, more at the end, or spread out from beginning to end? Sometimes I feel very certain of the spread; other times I feel unsure, and tonight was the unsure. So I tried it all ways.
For the Wild Card itself I played more of the Ace of Hearts and Queen of Hearts. We'll see how that goes...
Sometimes when I play I feel very confident and sure on a certain strategy; tonight, not so sure. So I bought $7 in quick-picks to ease my unsure mind. heh.
If you played, good luck to you! We'll see if our jackpot rolls over again...
August 2, 2012, 9:25 amWild Card 2 Rolls Over Once Again
Last night's winning numbers: 10 - 14 - 18 - 22 - 29 Wild Card: Jack of Hearts
Of these 5 winning numbers, the ones in blue were the ones I felt strongest about. In fact, I felt so strong about them that I kept marking them over and over again.
The whole point in choosing to have a blog here is to record how I'm doing with things, to track my progress. I started playing Pick 5 lottery games 4 years ago. I thought I would've snagged a nice jackpot by now, but that was just a bit naive. I created charts to help me see number patterns, and I'm glad I did. I would be lost without them. But the other part of the process is learning to use my intuition. Left Brain & Right Brain must learn to work together, that's what I always say.
So I didn't win anything large last night, but the good thing is, I am really learning to pay attention to my intuition. If I feel a "pull" toward a certain number, or combination of numbers, I am learning to acknowledge that feeling -- yes, it is a FEELING -- to just GO WITH IT.
Let the hand mark what it wants to mark on that playslip. And then - hope those marks line up.
Like those numbers in blue up there. I played them all, quite a few times, but I did not have them lined up. Perhaps it was just the shortness of time, trying to pull it all together after a long day at work... but this is something I really must work on, is checking to see that my "favorites" will be on the same line.
Another thing that gives me hope: I'm getting 3-out-of-5 rather consistently. It's been probably 6 months since I got 4-out-of-5, but to be able to get 3/5 consistently is a good sign, that my methods are working. This would not be the case with quick-picks.
Ok... marching on to Saturday, August 4th. JACKPOT $420,000.
July 11, 2012, 5:41 pmWild Card 2 - July 11th
JULY 11th JACKPOT: $305,000
$305,000 sounds pretty good to me. Tonight I'm hoping I can be smart enough to snag better than 3 out of 5, my average.
For tonight's game my priority number will be 11. It's been a long time since there was an exact Date Match so I will play a few lines of 7 - 11 just for the fun of it. I will also play number 9 with 11 on a few lines. And definitely will be trying more 1's, such as 11 - 21.
Numbers ending in 3, 4, 5, or 7 are on my agenda this evening. I don't plan on combining them but will choose them in pairs.
Absent Group (no-show over the past 8 games):
5 - 7 - 13 - 14 - 21 - 24 - 28
Ready to go Absent: 6 - 23 - 27
I'm also looking at a bare block of numbers between 4 and 10. It's got me a bit stumped but I will make selections from that block, at least one number. Same goes for the 20's. Anytime now there should be 2 numbers from the block 21 - 25. Trying to keep that in mind.
For the Wild Card itself I am still trying for that elusive Jack of Clubs. Will also try some King of Spades.
July 4, 2012, 10:11 pmWild Card - July 4th
JULY 4th JACKPOT: $275,000
Haven't played any games for awhile, too low on energy from the surgery, but tonight I did feel good enough to throw some lines together for Wild Card.
From the group of Missing numbers (past 8 games) I chose and varied 2 numbers from:
1 - 7 - 12 - 13 - 21 - 22 - 24
Now, looking at my tickets, I see I forgot #24. So hoping that one doesn't happen tonight. *fingers-crossed*
I also felt drawn to these: 3 - 9 - 11 - 14 - 16 - 19 - 25 - 29
But being in a big hurry, cutting myself short on time (ugh, why do I do that!), I feel like I missed something.
As for the Wild Card itself, I played the most of that elusive Jack of Clubs. That boy's been missing for a long, long time. He's bound to show one of these days.
Again, fingers crossed, and if you played, GOOD LUCK!
June 16, 2012, 7:33 pmWild Card 2 - June 16
Last night I dreamed of winning numbers ending in: 2, 4, 6, 7, 8. I remember specifically 'seeing' 26 and 28. So I will play those tonight, just in case they are meant to happen.
For tonight I am looking at a rather sizeable block of missing numbers between 18 and 22. But I would also include #24 in that.
Another block of missing numbers: 7, 8, 9, 12.
So I will pick something from both of those blocks, as well as numbers that have appeared in the past 3 games.
Will #2 repeat for a third time? What about #6, for a third time? I think I will go with #2. It's been a long time since there were two numbers together from the block 1-2-3-4. (March 21) So I'm keeping that in mind.
I'm looking at that busy #23. Perhaps it will have a side-by-side companion of 22-23 or 23-24.
So if there is a side-by-side tonight, what will it be..... I am also thinking about 9-10.
As for the Wild Card itself, I'm going to play the Ace of Spades and the King of Diamonds. (But... probably something else as well.)
So much to think about; so little time. I have 2 hours to get my lines together. Better hurry!
June 10, 2012, 6:10 pmWild Card - In the Ball Park
So I failed to hit that Wild Card jackpot last night.... but.... I was in the ball park! I had the King of Clubs on 4 lines and played every number except for #6. Really should have played that. I ran short on time and didn't get around to it.
This is a common problem I have, running short on time. I may have all of Saturday afternoon to be working on my charts and coming up with lines based around a certain strategy... and then I look at the clock at it's -- WHAT -- 5:00!!! Better hurry, better hurry.
So this is something I have to work on: Getting organized and managing my time better.
Winning numbers on Wild Card last night:
2 - 5 - 6 - 17 - 28
Closest I got to that in proximity to the actual winning numbers: 2 - 5 - 7 - 14 - 24
My 3-out-of-5 was: 2 - 5 - 13 - 23 - 28
Next jackpot: $195,000

Oooh, Wild Card now up to....
Wheeeee! I will definitely be playing for Saturday the 9th.
So the Queen of Hearts repeated.... wonder what will be next. I'm behind on my game from being sick so I gotta STUDY UP for Saturday. Will not miss out on my chance for $180,000. Jackpot rising quickly...
May 19, 2012, 11:27 amGG's Online Medical Research
Saturday, May 19: Internet Medical Research.
Conducted by: Me.
Why: Because doctors rarely explain anything. And when a surgeon completely contradicts what the other specialists have stated to be true, it's time for GG to hit the online medical books.
Now, where is my $200,000/ year salary for this? Oh, but I CAN expect a large bill in the mail for all my hard work.
May 2, 2012, 10:09 pmWild Card 2 - May 2
I had only 20 minutes to prepare my numbers tonight, so I don't expect any fabulous results.
I was mostly going for numbers in the first third, 1 - 9.
Absent for at least the past 8 games:
1 - 3 - 4 - 5 - 8 - 9 - 15 - 23 - 24
See how the majority there are 1 thru 9.
My number strings:
4 - 9 - 13 - 17 - 23 QD
2 - 4 - 9 - 17 - 19 QH
2 - 4 - 9 - 13 - 17 KD
4 - 9 - 17 -23 - 29 QH
2 - 4 - 7 -11 - 23 KC
3 - 4 - 7 - 19 - 22 QC
4 - 7 - 9 - 17 - 28 KD
2 - 4 - 9 - 17 - 19 QD
4 - 9 - 13 - 19 - 25 QD
1 - 4 - 7 - 15 - 25 QH
April 29, 2012, 12:14 amVery Close on that Wild Card Game Tonight!
Wild Card 2 Winning Numbers tonight:
6 - 7 - 25 - 29 - 30
Wild Card: Queen of Spades
I got 'em all, just not lined up quite right. I had 2 out of 5 on most lines I put together, and one with 3:
6 - 7 - 16 - 23 - 29; with Queen of Spades
I felt strongest about 6 & 7 this afternoon, so I played it quite a few times. I kept feeling a 'gray area' with the 20's, went back and forth with numbers between 27 and 31, including 23 and 25, but I just really wasn't getting a strong signal on that.
The Wild Card game has rather low under-jackpot prizes so I didn't win much, but it's nice to get this much correct -- boosts my confidence that I -will- hit it someday.
On to Wednesday....
