Win at home cut your loses on the road

Published:

I have been targeting certain states in an atempt to bring the
states overall prize ratio over 100%. I realize this may be an impossible
task. After all, if this was so easy, lotteryplayers wouldn't need jobs.

I am trying to answer the age old question. Are some players
better at certain games/states than others? or is thier winning just a simple
application of statistics?

I know that there is a certain expected win ratio. but how does one explain
my Arizona stat? where I have posted 1,038 predictions and never hit. not
even once in an 8.9 years.

time to cut my loses in Arizona and move on. I will eventualy come back
and try it again.

Oklahoma
the single hit here is not enough to pay the bills. (number of predictions)
Aug 20 LottoAce Oklahoma Pick 36-Way Box7-2-3  2-3-7 $40
cutting my loses in this state as well and moving on

Nebraska
nothing. more overall damage taken to lifetime stats.
moving on here as well

Colorado
this states pic 3 is giving me more grief than the woman I dated from here.
the hit here keeps my stats from bottoming out
Sep 06  LottoAce Colorado Cash  4 of 5  02-07-15-23-28  02-10-15-23-28 $150
no hits in the pic 3. think I'll stick it out for a few more weeks

North Carolina
when I started this quest North Carolina's prize ratio was 27.92%
began to work on the pic 3/4's in order to raise my home states overall prize ratio.

I carelessly allowed my pics to run out and as a result of my oversight I missed out
on three North Carolina hits.
Sept 07: 276 for $40, 276 for $40 and  762 for $290

Nice set of hits here was a big step toward my goal in N.C.

Sept 08 LottoAce North Carolina Pick 3 Evening 6-Way Box 5-0-9   5-9-0 $40
Sept 08 LottoAce North Carolina Pick 3 Evening 6-Way Box 9-0-5   5-9-0 $40
Sept 08 LottoAce North Carolina Pick 3 Evening 6-Way Box 0-5-9   5-9-0 $40
Sept 08 LottoAce North Carolina Pick 3 Evening 6-Way Box 0-9-5   5-9-0 $40
Sept 08 LottoAce North Carolina Pick 4 Evening 12-Way Box 6-9-2-2 2-2-6-9 $200
Sept 08 LottoAce North Carolina Pick 4 Evening 12-Way Box 9-6-2-2 2-2-6-9 $200
Sept 08 LottoAce North Carolina Pick 4 Evening 12-Way Box 2-2-9-6 2-2-6-9 $200

oversight/bad stragety cost me another $290 hit by not fully boxing in 590.
the pic 4 hit of 2269 (boat registration#) would have put me back in the black
on the pic 4 had I have knocked the $2700 out of the park.
that would have put the Pic 4 and possible the entire state's stats
back in black.

I realize though with a pic 4 that it is not realistic for me to reduce my
numbers down to one set every draw and play all possible combinations
to pick up the straight.

North Carolina's overall Prize ratio is 37.82%

N.C. Stat increased by 9.9%

were the hits in North Carolina and Indiana the week before just an offset of win probability
caused by the excessive losses in Arizona and Nebraska?

or did I win more often in North Carolina and Indiana because of the effort
I put forth by anaylising charts, and reading the forums?

In any case I still have yet to figure out how to effectively use pic3/4
to offset jackpot Lottery loses.
wouldn't it be great if one could use the winnings to fully fund
playing the bigger lotteries?
