Funny then how ever since I started using my own system that I have won more, and come closer to the BIG jackpots every time I play. I guess that must just be a striking "coincidence." Skeptical  I WILL beat the lottery one day soon, whether it be by luck or skill does not matter to me. The dents I am making are only getting bigger, and Faith moves mountains...

I agree. For me, I have won more with systems then I have with just doing quick picks. It hasn't been big wins yet, but it is still more.

      What is amazing is that New Jersey has tons of winners in Cash 5 and Lotto that defied the odds, and they managed to miss mentioning those that did some good with the money. Personal and otherwise.  Of course, if you know anything about the Star, you know where their head is.

      Cheers

        Thousands also seek advice online. Todd Northrop, a Somerset County resident, runs "Lottery Post," a Web site with 20,000 registered members. The most popular feature: Forums where members post lottery predictions.

        On any given day, he said, a member can pick a state and go through lists of lists — numbers that other members believe will come out on that day. It's a pastime that inspires true devotion.

        "Some Lottery Post members literally spend hours each day coming up with the right numbers to play and carefully prepare elaborate forum posts designed to highlight the best numbers," Northrop said.

        I agree Tenaj, at least LP got some exposure. So good for Todd! =)

          I agree, the author could have done a lot worse, as far as Lottery Post is concerned.  I too wished for a little more coverage (including perhaps a link), but that's just the way it shakes out sometimes.  Besides, given the tone of the article, maybe the amount of coverage was just right.

            Don't worry Todd...once we have a system that works all the time, we can put them to shame.

            WTG on the publicity...I completely agree with that!

                  Good point about the NJ Cash 5...I hit the second prize more than once  last year and I do not play hundreds of dollars a day/week. It is the best overall bet in NJ. Tonight 12/06/05 it's going off at over a half a million dollars, thats a nice hit any way you slice it.

                    I say to Mike O. and the other naysayers "BULLDINKY!!!!"

                    I had FIRST prize on Pick 5 a few years ago using a system written in QuickBASIC. Also recently I could have won $150K if I had wheeled 6 or 7 numbers instead of using only the top 5 picks. I get the bonus ball on MegaMillions almost every drawing. The last few years I have been developing a more advanced system which has often won money playing only a few dollars a day. Without my system I very rarely won. I made it myself so that I'm not playing the same #s as everyone else. If you BUY one then so are other people! Nothing is perfectly random as long as the same kind of machine and the same kind of pingpong balls and roughly the same mix time are being used.

                      It's always the people who don't play the game who know exactly why you can't win.  Even random has patterns.  You start with a ballset collection, after a time you find there are hot, average and cold numbers.  When you check them a year later within the life of the ballset collection, you find the hot numbers are still hot, the average are still average and the cold or dead numbers are still doing next to nothing.  When the ballset collection is changed, a portion of the numbers totally change to a different hit rate. 

                      I notice the part of the article doesn't cover where the numbers come from for the lucky number books.  I've seen them and really wondered if any thought and strategy goes into the picks, or if they are just random picks pretending to be the result of research or mystic picks. 

                      Also noticed the article doesn't get into the Lottery Post hit rate for predictors . . .

                      Good feedback.  I did mention the stat boards, and many other things to the reporter.  It turns out that there was a decidedly negative angle towards the lottery, and I'm guessing that my comments would make the lottery seem too fun.

                      Gee, it was a decidely negative article?  Big surprise, huh?

                      When they start out with

                      In sum: The lottery cannot be beaten.

                      "There is no system that can improve your chances of winning the lottery, period," says Mike Orkin, a California mathematician who has written extensively about gambling odds. ...that's kind of telling.

                      And let's not forget, bumblebees cannot fly.  That's a fact. Science says so. It's impossible. Therefore, every time you see a bumblebee, remember.....they beat the odds.

                      Hey! That's my line! Banana

                      Of course the press comforts the afflicted and afficts the comfortable. Don't try to confuse them with facts when their minds are already made up. This is what you'll get. Pity the poor wiccans and psychics who give interviews around Hallowe'en.

                        If the lottery cannot be beaten how is it that many of us can pick 3 digits out of 10 and pin the tail on the donkey and we can do this just about everyday! If that is not beating then lottery then what is? How about when those here can pick 4 numbers right as well and again pin the tail on the donkey? If we can do this with pick 3 and or pick 4 what is to stop us from pick 6 correct numbers? There is nothing stopping it and so I disagree with the statement the lottery can Not be Beaten! Only the closed mind would agree with that statement.

                         

                        I have already picked 4 correct numbers in match 6 what is to stop me from one day picking all 6 right? My philosophy is that if you are supposed to win … You WILL! And nothing or no one could stop that from happening! Again there is no stopping a person from picking all 6 numbers and win, unless the game is rigged! I would like to see an article done about shadiness of some lotteries rather than see an article that says that it cannot be beaten. It can be beaten if there is no outside interference going on!

                         

                        At any rate I thought the part about this forum was done well and as Todd said:

                        Yep and we are winning too!!!! As they say “The proof is in the Pudding”!

                        Winning is Winning is Winning, either 1 million, 1 hundred thousand, or 100 dollars its still called Winning!

                        Congrats Todd!

                          The Pick 3 and Pick 4 games were developed as our part of the reparations from slavery..I am trying to get all I can. Rich folks have Wallstreet and I have Pick 3 and sometimes Pick 4.  ROFL

                          If you know your number is going to hit, have patience and then KILL IT!

                          You never know when you will get another hit.
