What kind of success should I expect


Good day all:

 Today I became a member of lottery post.  I am very interested in this site because it seems to be the most comprehensive I have seen to date. 

 It is put together very well and so far I have enjoyed reading many of the blogs.  It appears that folks that use this site are very well versed in how best to play the lottery and are extremely smart.

Since I am a novice I would appreciate some feed back on some initial questions I have regarding the process.

If anyone cares to answer I wonder how much one should play per day to expect even a minimal amount of success?  Put another way how it the best way to manage your money and what is a reasonable stake to start with.

Do the various lotto games offer the player any change to really win consistantly or are we kidding ourselves into thinking we picked the correct number when all  our work only produced a random number that we picked by nothing more than blind luck?

Finally, can anyone define consistant winning?  Does it mean twice a week once a year and how successful should one expect to be?

I am only asking so I will have a grasp of what my expectations should be.

You've asked a lot of questions, most of which we all ask ourselves every day.

One piece of advice is to expect nothing back from the lottery and play accordingly. That's not meant to be a negative expectation thing, just realism.   Play it on paper and on this site for fun until you get your feet wet and if you start doing well jump in. Keep your betting cheap and you won't have to worry about consistency...an occasional win will bring a profit just as easy as a lot of hits spending a lot of money. Plus you'll keep the game fun for yourself. It's a lot more fun when you're only losing a few bucks every day rather than a few 10's.

My last piece of advice is to start with the pick 3 and work your way upward. The payoff to odds ratio is best on the pick 3 and 4. The jackpot games aren't worth too much investment unless you're doing good at it on paper, then go for it.

Welcome to LP and have fun!

I recommend that you try out the Quick Picks-RNG on the left hand side. That is if you want to have an RNG pick your numbers that is not the terminal QP at your local retailer. You could also do a little research on who is doing the best predicting in your state and you can test your own predictions on the prediction board to see if you are making some money. I think you will have to be a paying member to get the full use of the wheel systems here. I personally do not know anything about them. I hope that your time here at lottery post is pleasant and that you make yourself alot of the lotteries money.-weshar75

A big welcome to Lottery Post!! Hope you enjoy this site more and more each day, continuing to find new things to assist you in winning something really big.

I believe you have to determine which types games you're "tuned into" ( Pick 3 &4, or Pick 5, or Pick 6 lotto, or multistate like Powerball and Mega Millions ) then refine your strategies from there. There are many and varied methods posted daily, more in archive so plenty of reading.

An easy way of finding out what is your strong suit is dry runs on games, also posting on the prediction boards which is a lot of fun.

Lottery Post has invaluable search features which I wear out when picking numbers for Lottery Post MM and PB challenges and numbers to play. Please feel free to join any of our challenges, and best of luck to you.   

Play what your budget allows you to without creating financial discomfort for yourself, but know your game and play smart. My suggestion always is to develop your intuition in addition to strategies to give yourself a little better edge. Sometimes that intuition says don't bother, sometimes it says you have a chance so can be very helpful and save money.

Make what you're doing enjoyable, the adventure fun ... play while being sensible, prudent with expenditures. Keep a positive mindset and see yourself in the future as having already won. Set the goal and keep your eye on the prize. Good luck!
