Texasman, with a pick of 49 numbers and playing 25 cent box at :
With 49 numbers you should hit a box around 1 out of every 4 or 5 times.
49 tickets x $0.25 = $12.25 as you correctly point out. But the win payout for a box would be $37.50 for a non-double and $75.00 for a double. I don't post doubles unless I think they are "due", so I usually don't post 49 numbers! Anyway 5 plays would be $12.25 x 5 = $61.25. You would have to hit the double to make any money, if you played that many numbers each time! But playing fewer numbers, I'm hoping to have a profit with a better than 1 out of 5 hits.
I have played 4 draws in Texas and have missed all of them so far.
This draw was 49 numbers, but the previous 3 draws were 38, 39, and 39 numbers.
Yes, you won't get rich using this method, but it has had very good success in the past.
