Oh when I said "Bluskov is the new wonderkid on the block", I meant he is the last wheel maker so far (after Gail Howard) to produce such great economical wheels.

After much perusing between Gail's wheels and Bluskovs wheels, I was just about to buy Bluskov's book and Gail's Wheel Five To Win only. But I decided to also buy Gail's Wheel A Fortune too. Simply cos since luck has a lot to do with winning, I figured after first using Bluskov's pick 6 wheels and "I" flop, maybe just maybe Gail's pick 6 wheels will provide some luck, so that is my reasoning... buying all three books.

I wish Bluskov would make a pick 5 wheel book.




Being a diehard Gail Howard fan, you must have all her books by now.


I dunno if I'd say die-hard, but I'm not buying Winning Wheels For Powerball/Mega Millions.

      If you say so boss, but I didn't deny her watered down QP info, I didn't create most of the Gail Howard threads here, I don't just buy her products exclusively, AND I am not associated with her as you assumed before.

              No, wheels are a way to take a certain pool of numbers, and use them to buy a series of tickets such that if the numbers drawn fall within your pool of numbers, you get at least one matching ticket.  It's a little more complicated than that, by that's the basics.

              For some reading materials on wheels, click Wheels in the Resource menu above.

                Yo Todd, What are your thoughts of you running a lottery pool. As a combined force we could play any lottery game in the U.S. or even overseas. I volunteer to do the CA ticket purchases. I used to purchase the CA Super Lotto tickets for the Lotto World $3 Billion Club.    Platinum John in sunny and warm Escondido, CA

                  The Iliya Bluskov wheels are generally superior in that they are tighter giving the same guarantee for fewer tickets or a superior percentage of coverage across the prize tiers for the same cost to play.

                  The only problem is the wheels are only 4if or higher and only for Pick-6.

                  Gail Howard offers a wide variety of 3if wheels for Pick-4,5&6 lotto games,
                  along with key number wheels.

                  Neither author gets into group, pair or positional wheels.

                  It all depends on how you want to play based on your number selection skills.  If you can place winning numbers among a field small enough to play a 4if or 5if wheel, that's the way to go.

                  On the other hand, if your lottery software needs 24 or more numbers to find your winning numbers among, you would likely want a cheap 3if wheel.

                  The thing of it is, we don't play wheels to win the prize they guarantee.

                  We use wheels in the hope they will play above their guarantee and make us rich.  What matters is we understand we are simply throwing a pattern on the water hoping to catch a prize.  Realize you still need to look beyond the lower prize guarantee to making up tickets you believe should win and loading the wheel so those special tickets come out among the wheel's product. 

                  If the first six numbers of the wheel are 01-02-03-04-05-06 you make darn sure they are replaced by a set of six numbers you thing most likely to hit together or you are wasting your time.

                  This thread belongs in systems, it will move off the page too soon here.

                    BobP,

                    The Lottery Post Wheels page has lots of 3 if wheels.  If you have more that we're missing that you'd like to donate I'll post them for others to use.

                      Hey John,

                      If I'm going to run something as a LP-sactioned endeavor, I have to cover myself legally, etc., because LP could be vulnerable otherwise.  I like the idea; maybe it will be possible at some point.

                        I understand only basically about the above. I need some more tutoring. Can you show me a step by step example BobP? I'd appreciate it. Thanx much.

                          Yes, I like the idea too. My only concern is trust... simply cos we're talking about alotta $$$ at times.

                            Well, that would be one of the positive things about a LP-santioned endeavor: people would be able to trust it.
