I never post the actual combinations I play since I will keep playing them until the jackpot hits. But if you keep changing the combinations then it wouldn't matter. Also if it's a game you can't play like state games on the east coast for me then I could care less if someone won with them since there would be no way of playing the game anyways.

Since some people claim to have the secret way of winning lotteries (yet still never won one for themselves) having them post predictions is a good way of getting rid of these charlatians. After all if anyone had a way of winning lotteries then they would win two or three just for good measure.

    Winning one lottery during a lifetime is more than most people will ever do and winning two is hardly ever heard of.  Saying anyone claiming to have a way to win lotteries, should be able to win three just for good measure is expecting a lot unless you are talking about the pick3 and pick4 games.

       i post to help others win, as well as myself. it does'nt matter to me if  i'm a top predictor or a bottom predictor, i'm not looking for any glory or recognition. to me helping others is a reward in itself, and to me that's the name of the  "game"...!

        people who post predictions doesn't bother me a lot, i like to see them even if i don't play them. I get good ideas from them and can see who is getting results. Many people on lottery post have great ideas. And go out of their way to explain and show people how their systems work.

        What troubles me is lottery personal picking up on these ideas and implementing measures to try and change the out come of a draw based on some persons strategy. Especially if that strategy is working and the lottery begins to have to pay out more on pick 3/4 games. I often notice when people start a thread about a system that is working in some state that after a few days it seems to taper off. Now wether that is because lottery personal made a change to the game like replacing balls sets or changing algorithms who knows. Then again there are people who post a  series of numbers that slam dunk for a whole month or more in many states. No matter what even if this is my paranoid delusion this is the best site for finding different ways to play and we should all be grateful that it exists so we might win more often.

              I've suggested this before-

              Being able to put your prediction in before the draw with the option of not having it posted on the LP until after the draw.

                    10:45 PM EST is the deadline to enter your picks for current days drawing. So if you post them after that time, people can't play your numbers and if you win you can still let other people know of your predictions.

                      You actually bring up an excellent point with this, something that I hadn't thought of before.

                      Some guys may want to TEST a new workout but dont want to post predictions because they dont want people to drop their money on a "theory". It would be too cool if there was some way to inform others that you arent actually making the bet but testing..............I dont know maybe put a "T" by their predictions.

                        I doubt if you posted your numbers at *10:35 PM EST, even if a person was on the Internet in the store where he would be buying his tickets that he would have time to make out the tickets and play them.  At best he would have to decide before then that you normally pick a winner, have pencil and cards ready and standing ready to go as soon as your post showed up on his computer.
