Hey Everyone!

I'm new to the forum.  Let me give u some background info.  I started becoming a serious lottery player about a year and some months ago when i stumbled upon the "Lottery Master Guide" by Gail Howard on amazon's website.  I bought it and ever since I've played in every single drawing and kept up with winning numbers.  Of course, I also bought the software, which I haven't used in months.  I read on here somewhere that some people like to be in control of their own destiny by picking their own numbers.  While I agree with that I might just start mixing that with quick picks.  A quick pick may generate a combination that I never even thought of.  Oh!  and i'm going to TX today to get some tickets so wish me luck!

          It's refreshing to see a new player that realizes playing the lotto requires nothing more than buying a quick pick or two.  I hope you buy a winner in TX.

          I play to dream and dream of winning a major jackpot!

              Hey Thanks everyone!

              I just got back from TX.  I never play pick 3 but I did today for TX and LA because of the predictions I saw and how some of them came true.  So I just decided to try my luck.  I made a mistake sort of on the LA Pick 3.  I used the numbers 510 and I picked 510 and 015.  I didn't realize until after I bought the ticket that those are the same numbers.  LOL!  Well, if those come up I'll just win double.

              I liked the book.  It was actually fun to read.  It's something I'd love to get together with other serious lottery players and use the strategies with instead of doing it alone.  Did I ever win using her software?  Not really.  I'll explain why.  One time, I played the Louisiana Lotto and used one of the wheels and won $9.  I matched 3 on 3 lines.  And 1  time I did a smart pick and it gave me the right powerball number.  That's about it.  I would say that the software guides you on the right track to winning and significantly reduces the odds of losing, but there's still lots of guessing.  Like "which hot numbers are most likely to come up next?"  "Which cold number should I include in my final pick?"  It's something that would be fun to do with other serious lottery players I think.  That way we would have more in depth discussions and opinions.  It's very time consuming doing it by myself.  2 heads are better than 1.

              After using the software i resorted to getting Quick Picks again.  But I might start going back to picking my own numbers.

                Not bad. Most I ever won on non-scratch games is $3 lol. I agree. Software does reduce the odds of losing... I think

                  Welcome to LotteryPost.

                  The Gail Howard software is helpful if you want to see how an idea would have worked.  Her software pretty much covers most of the ideas people would come up with thinking about how to win.

                  As it appears you've found, the software doesn't predict winning numbers worth a damn, none of them do so far.  BobP
