I think Dr. M is spot on they are trying in part to gin up sales.  Litebets is correct they stop selling numbers when the number is sold out, quads are hard to buy often 3388 1479 etc..  I do know a couple of very lucky and very heavy players that have just over the past couple of weeks slammed the heck out of P4 and P3.  They won't go to computerized if they are smart.

    The lottery department make the rules and players just follow. So if the state of Maryland become unhappy then be like Massachusetts where you win based on price availability. if more people win price goes down and if less people win price goes up and nobody ever whines.Coffee

      I'm saying Maryland does have two games that are computerized which are played in-house at many stores, gas stations, supermarkets, bars, and restaurants that sells lottery. They are,  Ractrax  and Keno. These games are played all day long. I don't think the MDSL will change the traditional game to computer control, but I do think they have altered or have a process of having the present software present numbers that are least or not played.

      Ractrax  and Keno  are take in pay out types of games they pay a percentage of what they take in just like slot machines.

        Oh yeah. If you want to play true Quads you have to play them days in advance because by mid-morning they are usually cut off. Every now and then you maybe able to get one in for $.50 the same day.

        Maryland does too that's why numbers are cut off

          How would they know if the number is sold out if there systems aren't sniffing number picks to avoid?

            If the md players follow Blackkapple's examples and use Knockout p4 and or bluesky p4 there will be more wins.

            How about them cowboys!

                  Yes they do cut numbers off at a fixed amount. for example 1010 and 1212 are virtually impossible to  play the same day and sometimes two days out. However this does not mean that when they  hit that   mdsl does not pay out more than they took in. Duckman is correct in that there is no secret method or system and and its all random, so why the hugh payouts in maryland? here's how I play.Remember there is no guarantee you will win but when  you do win you will win big. It's simple, You can take a dollar and play 1234 and win 100.00 or you can take that same dollar and play 1234 and win 5000.00. Now which would you rather have. Marylanders are beginning to play for the big bucks  by playing the numbers straight instead of boxed. It's all luck. You're either going to win or you're not going to win. It's one or the other. there are no in  betweens.

                    All computerized lottery sales are accounted for instantaneously due to the magic of computers!!!!!!  There is no guessing by any lottery agency about what is getting sold (played) and they have set/programmed limits on sales.  In MD I think it is 1500straights  x 5000=$7500000 straight/box of any number is a sell out,  so if 500 straights are sold then that leaves 1000 straights to make it up as boxes so that would leave $5000000 for eg with a 24way box that would leave $5000000/200= 25000 $1 boxes or 50000 .$50 boxes.......  MD lottery P4 is ball drawn  it is not RNG  and leaves no doubt that RNG is not RNG.

                      Just as long as they don't go computerized to evade number picks.  The states that are mostly computerized draws,  do the computers already know the numbers to avoid,  when it's time for the numbers to be picked?

                        The sytems forum has several Blackapple examples of roots, p4 etc.  He is an expert at p3 and 4.  The knockout and bluesky are posted in the system forum.  The bluesky p4 has a download that you can use to backtest and play if you wish.

                          Scratching my head on this story of MD players winning big with Pick 4. Thought the gaming companies had a handle on this before it became a problem for the state of MD 

                          What?

                              Also 5 Card Cash is computerized. Everything has a way of evening out. The MD lottery has had a good run of taking in a lot without having to pay out a lot, now the trends has changed on Pick 4. It'll switch back to "normal" eventually. It's still nice to listen to them cry about having to pay out though in the mean time.LOL

                              Following the trends and patterns means following the money!Banana
