A couple of years ago I developed a method of picking numbers that seemed to be fairly decent. I got a good number of hits and given that I am only a standard member that's difficult to do with only ten number combinations. With that said, I stopped doing predictions because I simply had no time to figure up my formulas and go to school. And to be honest... Who wants to look at numbers when you're taking three calculus courses, 2 calculus based physics classes, and three atmospheric physics courses? Yeah, during those times I hated numbers, variables, and unknowns. Simply speaking, I was already doing enough math pursuing my degree and I was tired of it all so I stopped predicting. And since I live in a nonlottery state (Ala-freakin-bama) there really was no point. I couldn't play my predictions and therefore in the end couldn't benefit from them. However, now that I have my BS in Atmospheric Physics I can go back to my old methods. True, I still live in a nonlottery state (and hate it) I look at predicting as a hobby. I'm far from the best but I am overall happy with my selections and the number of wins I obtain.
It is frustrating though. Since I have not predicted numbers in a while I am a bit rusty. That showed yesterday when I was one number off on numerous pick four predictions. ONE NUMBER it seemed like in almost every state. If I had more then ten picks I might have nailed a couple of boxed p4 wins. I know... I know... I should upgrade my membership; however, with student loans coming due soon and me still working a crappy job that isn't going to happen in the near future. I will do the best with what I have and hopefully gain more experience in the process.
As for the future... I'm going to keep revising my formulas and spreadsheets. I lost most of my spreadsheets from my predictions long ago after my computer crashed. At the time I didn't think I would ever need them again... However, I am now kicking myself. Oh well... I guess it's best to start from scratch because my information would have been out dated and a couple of variables like RNG needed to be accounted for. Like any other person I will not go into specifics on how I obtain the numbers. Lets just say my computer programming class opened a lot of doors in terms of data analysis and I don't really want to reveal my secrets.
Some changes this go around include pick 5 predictions. I have started researching the how to's for those predictions and will try different methods for certain states. I'm hoping to come up with a decent system soon. Until then it is strictly trial and error.
Good luck lotto fans!!!
