# Maybe this is better than playing the lottery...

Published:

COMMENT BY PUMPI76:

I got this idea from reading one of lantern's blog...

This is titled Maybe this is better than Playing the lottery even though is not better than playing megamillions but is better than playing Pick3, Pick4 and Pick5...Or so it looks theoretically...

What if you create a pool of 25 players and each plays 10 dollars a month....Now suppose you play pick4 and you track pick4 and play just 1 number "Straight" option...25 members x \$10 = \$250...[like if you play triples or 1 double]...Now \$250 x \$ 5,000 straight option for pick4 = 1 Million 250,000 dollars...Divided by 25 members = 50,000 dollars EACH MEMBER....

This will require that you spend the \$250 dollars in 1 number...That is playing 10 dollars a month from each member...In 5 years you will have spent 650 dollars....And what can 10 dollars a month hurt...Suppose you spend 20 dollars a month and win then each member will win 100,000 dollars...But instead you are not going after 400,000 combinations but only 10,000....

LET'S TAKE PICK3 FOR EXAMPLE which is easier to get straight than pick4...suppose you spend 20 dollars a month on pick3...

25 members x \$20 = \$500....\$500 x \$500 pick3 straight option = \$ 250,000...Divided by 25 members = \$10,000 EACH MEMBER...and as you can see it pays better than Pick4 almost double than pick4 but instead of going at 10,000 combinations you are only going at 1,000 of pick3....

i don't know if is possible with 1 combination but i've seen some LP member predict with like 3 combinations and get Pick3 "STRAIGHT", i've also seen LP member predict like 13 combination for all state and get 8 or 9 state correct not all straight but still, that's almost like 1.2 combinations per each of the 8 or 9 states...

well i dont know if they can get pick4 straight with 1 combination but the smallest number of combinations predicted for Pick4 that i've seen is 10 for pick4 and they got it correct...

That's what the power of numbers do...

again trying to help, always figuring out ways to crack pick3 and pick4...It was just an opinion trying to help...I came up with the idea but i thought about it by looking at one of Lantern's blog...

i'll like your opinions on it and thanks a lot..Maybe is a good idea maybe not...

Another way to approach it is to get the predictions of a very good predictor and let's say is 5 combinations, then we get teams of 25 member each team pool playing different numbers and if correct 1 of them is bound to get it correct...you may not win but your next door member team maybe will win...

COMMENT BY PUMPI76:  another idea is this, suppose you spend \$20 per month on pick4...then 25 members x \$20 = \$500......\$500 playing 5 combination \$100 each per combination will be \$100 x \$ 5,000= \$500,000 divided by 25 members = \$20,000 per member, still better than pick4 jackpot...but the question is can they predict pick4 "Straight" with 5 combinations....

my bad i forgot to mention that i got this idea also from psykomo about his pool...

if we had 20 teams of 25 members each; each team playing \$20 dollars a month and each team playing 5 pick4 combinations "Straight" then that will be 100 combinations that predictors got to get pick4 "STRAIGHT", can you imagine if all 20 teams of 25 members each played 40 dollars a month? Each one playing 10 Pick4 combinations "Straight" then that will be 200 combinations that predictors got to get pick4 "Straight"...This will mean than 1 of those 20 teams of 25 members will win once a month if they get it correct 1 of those 20 teams of 25 members will get it correct and win 20,000...And suppose that all 20 teams alternate and they get it correct each month? Then each team will win \$20,000....With some teams winning 20,000 dollars more than others...

let's take the example of Pick3...Suppose for pick3 you have 20 teams of 25 member each...Each team playing \$ 40 a month and each team playing \$250 "Straight" for Pick3 then they will have 80 combinations to play to get Pick3 "Straight"....Each combination played 250 times...This will mean that 1 team will win \$5,000 each month...The others will not, but what if they alternate after 1 team wins it continues to play, then 1 team will win 5,000 a month...Again they got up to 80 combinations to get PIck3 "Straight"...that particular day....

Well, a pool could work as long as we found someone with a good "str8" track record. Logistically it could get confusing if people were from different states. Setting it up and keeping records would be the hard part unless someone has done that before. Each person having a PayPal account would also be helpful for receiving and dispensing funds.
