i seen it also, been reading about her winners too. reading them makes me think that i can win too. even though the odds are of course staggering. funny i have her software and there are def. things that pop out and give you a better chance to play winning numbers by wheeling, but when you wheel say 30 numbers out of the 52 that is currently present in mega mil. does everyone think the combinations are the best they can be? i know the win guarantee is what it is. and if i have 200 dollars to play in a weeks worth of drawing i am using the wheel 30 numbers for a 3 of 5 win. i would appreciate advice if that is the best wheel i should be using for say a hundred tickets on tuesday and a hundred tickets on friday. thanx.
If I was going to play $100 worth of Mega Millions tickets in a drawing, I would play Lottery Post's 2 if 5 of 52 wheel (40 lines) twice, each time using a different random-scattering of the numbers in the wheel (the wheel uses all 52 numbers, so there is no need to select your own numbers).
If you do want to select your own numbers, then you can still use this wheel to good effect:
The thirty-first and fourty-first numbers are the ones that appear most often in the output (6 times), so put your two hottest numbers in those positions. Take your next five-hottest numbers and place them in the 14, 23, 24, 29, and 30 positions, as each of those positions is used 5 times. The rest of the numbers are used either 3 or 4 times in the wheel, so they can be randomly scattered.
For the Mega Balls, unless you believe you can predict the number, just use all of the 52 numbers as evenly as possible. Obviously with 80 lines you can't play each number twice, but you can play most of them twice.
With the remaining $20, I would consider quick picks or another abbreviated wheel. Some of the Lottery Post wheels that would work well for $20 include:
Hope this helps!
P.S. Here's a recent example of success I had with Lottery Post's 2 if 5 of 52 wheel:
