      Howdy All,

      Definitely, not easy, but if people actually paid more attention to the data instead of throwing any number on the board hoping that it sticks to a state, those stats could change a lot. Not to mention, some of the prizes are not accurate on the board either. That would make a difference as well.

      I have ask Todd in the past if he could include a stat in the stats filters that didn't include "all states predictors" in the top predictors. He didn't like the idea, not sure why, but I for one would love to see those stats. That would tell me a lot about who is really good at this game. I, for one, would think it would make people strive to get better at this game. What do you think?

      Just my two cents worth,

      Bryan  :)

            i don't pay too much attention to prediction board.  just my opinion.

            love to nibble those micey feet.

                takeitez, you have to understand this is not all players & all predictors in the U.S. So you can't judge the game on this set of stats alone. Some people will not reveal their plays because they believe that some lottery officials may be watching. When I go to the grocery store I see people standing in the lottery line with their lottery playing cards pressed closely against them. They do not want the person in the back of them looking over their shoulders & seeing their picks. It's hush, hush in the lottery line.
