LRS gave me almost everything I wanted in a system...
used draw history
backtested well (better than any other system I have tried) without being a system where "hindsight" can adversely color the data
the ONLY thing missing is a win!
Now, Pick3 had 1 $500 win... but to play until the next backtested hit average I would have to spend over $450 of it to "maybe" hit again... I quit that game and I can say I beat one!
Pick4 had zero straight hits and only one box, I dropped that one too mostly because the backtest was poor compared to others.
Which leaves me with June's rag-tag collection of Cash5, Match6 and Powerball. Not even a single $1 hit on cash5 this month so far. Unlike the smaller games, the jackpot system only needs to work once...
July's test is finalized already... it's
Powerball every draw
Cash5 only on a roll-over (should save at least $15 or more next month)
Match6 ONLY when the after-tax prize is about $1,000,000 ($1,550,000 advertised)... this means if it's hit I may not play at all, and if it rolls thru june I could be in all month because it's almost that now.
In august I look at the cash5 and match 6... I will tally the money spent vs. the money won (if any) and the highest one stays for august... if they both go cold for june and july,they BOTH go... then it's back to just the powerball for me.
