I just wonder that when you guys play lotto, megamillions, powerball, etc. do you guys guess the numbers or you use some kind of software to generate the prediction?



I think guessing and predict the numbers by our own head is more fun, even thouh we lose. I wrote a C++ program to generate random number in a specified range and bought those numbers, but I lost and felt like duuhhhh, where were my thinking? :)

    Even if you use software, you're still guessing.  Software can only generate data about past drawings that might be helpful in picking your numbers, but you still have to choose the best way to use the data and that is a guess.  If you leave the choice up to the program then you are using the guess work of the programmer.

      the odds are so great that whether you guess your own or get a quick pick ultimately its when the numbers are actually drawn that you'll then know the outcome,either way its 50/50 with either quick pick or own numbers,i like to be in charge of my own destiny so i choose my own.

            That's right, no matter what you do, you are always just guessing and also no matter what the software does it's also just guessing, either by your use of it, or it was programmed to guess according to whatever parameters were used.

                I definitely don't belive in random numbers especially when I am gonna cough up $1 or $2.



                I thought in a sense(since I haven't guessed right: then in general) it is all a guess. I still prefer to guess my numbers depending on past numbers especially those that has not occured. This can be equally as bad if a number deceived to pack up and take a vacation in Cancun and leave you with the bill betting on it's lazy azz for months.



                The best way is to get a feel of what numbers haven't occured, the kind of patterns that numbers are taking and roll your dice in that direction while having a great 'ol time.

                  I forgot about the software part of your question.

                  I am using this trial software lotto pro. It is pretty good because I like to pick the numbers I think will be drawn and run combinations on them. And if the look good or have that certain something, i will play them.

                  I don't want to pay for any software because I am having problem with people taking my money as it is already.

                      @ joezep1,

                      that code is about choosing the most 7 hot numbers and the most 8 cold numbers in the most recent eight weeks past, then generate random numbers between these fifteen hot + cold number, didn't work out for me thoug :)

                        It's very rare for all the winning numbers to come from hot, cold or hot plus cold.  When you play a third of the numbers no matter where they come from, you are going to average a third of the winning numbers among them.

                        The best thing you can do if playing minimally is to play all the numbers once.  If a 6/49 game this means 8 or 9 lines, but the winning numbers will be on six or fewer lines so you're really playing in a 6/36 game when you play using all the numbers.  Half the time you can eliminate the numbers from the previous draw, varies depending on game size.

                        With prediction out of the way, concentrate on combining the numbers that hit together in groups of six, ie: co-occurence with typical balances.

                          In your 2nd paragraph, please explain in detail what you mean when you say that the winning numbers will be on six or fewer lines so you're really playing in a 6/36 game when you play using all the numbers.

                            Well, you take this deck of playing cards.......LOL.

                            That's the way I have been winning mostly with the Pick 3.  I haven't won with the Fantasy 5 or Super Lotto in Californina using cards, but I have tried.  Works with Pick 3, though.  Check my Blog.

                              The worst thing that can happen is you get one of the six winning numbers per line, that means six lines = 36 numbers.  So that's the outside perameter of what can happen.  All six winning numbers on one line is the inside perameter, ie: a 6/6 game.  The better you get at this the closer you get to playing in a 6/6 game.  I've found myself in a 6/12 game  several times by this method, ie a 4# win line and a 2# line.

                              When you just buy Quick Picks, it can happen you don't have all the winning numbers among your lines no matter how many lines you buy. If you don't have all the winning numbers among your lines you can't win no way no how.  BobP
