I agree with you randomlogic. Don't waste your time though. Some folks just refuse to learn anything new. A Caveman mentaility will keep someone dumbed down. They actually like it that way because then they don't have to use the little amount of brain cells they have left.

It's so sad....

    RL,

    "I guess you would call it luck but no one has been able to tell me what luck is."

    How about whenever the nunmbers you played are the numbers drawn, whatever the method of number selection, that's luck.

    How about when you've worked out some numbers and fill out the playslip wrong and those are what hit. Not luck?

    How about the woman a few monthsa go who thought she was playing Powerball and played the Mega Millions and won it? Not luck?

    Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

    Lep

    There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

        I still think it is just chance,  If luck and chance are the same then if one can improve their chances 

        then I guess luck would also be increased.  The women had the correct numbers and that is why

        she won.  If I make a mistake filling out my playslips I call it a mistake.  I can' t change the numbers

        that will be drawn but I can play a smarter set, if they don't hit it does not mean that my numbers

        selected were unlucky it just means that they did not match the draw.  No system will ever produce the

        winning numbers every time unless it's rigged somehow.  Just because a ticket is a QP does not mean

        that it is a bad play.  I, from my own observations have found that QP's don't offer the coverage that  is

        needed to have a good chance, this in no way means that all qp's are bad it's just that by doing a little

        selecting on your own you can improve the set.  The winning number set was in my opinion a very good

        set reguardless of how they were selected.  I think that this is the problem between system players and

        those that like QP's.  If I was going to play a QP I would make a few counts and if it did not meet at least

        my minimum requirements then I would have the ticket cancelled and get another.  This would at times

        be very time consumming so what I do is pre-build my sets and fill out the play slips before hand.  Some

        would say that I am wasting my time but for me it has payed off.

          If you can ever figure out how to handicap a ping pong ball let everybody know until then luck is the answer be it good luck or bad luck..Number predicting is just guessing..Nobody knows what the next set of numbers are and if they did they would hit everytime and there would be no lottery so GOOD LUCK...

          Tiggs

          Where I live there are no ping pong balls at all and the drawings are not even brodcast on tv.  If there 

          were no balls would it make any difference.  I posted another method that could be used by the lottery

          that used a big wheel like on the game show "The price is right" where every set had it's own space on

          the wheel.  The wheel would be spun and the space it lands on when it stopped would be the winning

          set.  If such a method was used would it would there be any difference versus using ping pong balls.

            tiggs sister lives in Surprise Az and they don't have a ping pong drawing either and they don't show the numbers on TV..Sounds like a bad state for a lottery..Move to a ping pong state is the answer..ridge lives in a no ping pong sate Tenn..Maybe he should move one state up so he can get a fair shake...He complains about not trusting the Tenn lottery but still buys tickets..Guess he might say "It's the only game in town"..

              RL,

              Just my $.02 but i think luck and chance (not chances)are the same. How about the phrase, "We'll just have to leave it to chance".

              Also, this comes to mind, parody of an old rock song,

              "C'mon baby won't you take a chance.....

              I left my rubbers in my other pants...."

              Scared

              tiggs95,

              "Move to a ping pong state is the answer..."

              Green laugh

              Very shortly after tiggs had convinced rdgrnr to mive to a ping poin statde that state became a non-ping pong state and stopped televising the drawings.

              Scared

                      Kentucky's a ping pong state?

                      I always thought it was a ding dong state.
