Was wondering with the New Year fast approaching what you might do different for 2005 in regard to playing the lottery. Maybe give up a certain game, change your betting habits, maybe save all winnings, and stuff like that... Just curious if anyone has any thoughts.

    next year I am going to save all my loosing tickets from Jan 1 - Dec 31.  I am also going to cut back on the amount of plays per game no matter how high the jackpot is......$10 per draw will be my new max ($5my picks & $5quick picks).

          Probably play less. Luck is something you dont have any control over. And I do believe its mostly luck.

              2005 will be a great year for me, seeing how I am going to hit the Powerball tonight.

                  If you do that, can we still call you LosingJeff?

                  Or will it be MR. LosingJeff?

                    I'm going to try to put all my winnings away for the year. Especially little wins, I usually recycle those $40 and a $80 box wins but If I put um away for the year I'll have a nice chuck of change at years end. Also I purchased a Lotto subscription for the year, this way I'm in on every drawing and just have to wait for my winning check in the mail.

                        Doing more research, also may give a spin....bigger payouts than ANY STATES..but you still have to win

                          i may go back to playing pick 3 and pick 4, but otherwise nothing different.

                          I've redone my website.  Go to www.dr-ew.com.  I kept a lot of the old stuff, and I've added some new stuff.  Look for more new stuff in the coming weeks.

                            Since Wisconsin switched to computerized drawings, for the short term I might go with a filtered quick pick approach. Instead of picking individual numbers I am just going to play filtered combinations. As far as what numbers to play. I use Lotto Pro and as a general rule I throw out the bottom six numbers on the Number Statistics Chart and also throw out the due numbers if I believe none of those are going to hit. Then decide whether or not to play any prior numbers and possibly throw those out. After doing this I end up with anywhere from 25-30 numbers. I take those numbers and filter them (of course using some guessing and assumptions) using Lotto Hat and can get the Pick 6 (6/36) number of combinations down to anywhere from 5,000 to 20,000. Here is where the quick pick comes in. From those 5,000 to 20,000 I have Lotto Pick 10 combos at random to get the quick picks. I may have Lotto Hat pick more and eliminate a few combos if I see some that just don't look right. The one bad thing about this approach is playing so many numbers, you don't get much of wheel. But until there is more of a draw history and can maybe see some patterns I will use this approach. Then maybe I will go back to using smaller wheels.

                              probaly keep on playing like i usually do ,when i have money. keep dreaming of winning.maybe start picking my own numbers like i used too. instead of playing quick picks all the time.
