Predictable to an extent.

    Maybe.  People aren't a lot more predictable than numbers, most times.

        There are too many variables to predicting, and while i still think that trends play an important role in the outcome of numbers, the bottom line is that predicting is very unpredictable.  you can study till your exhausted and without the element of "luck" behind you, it aint going to happen...! 

      I Agree!

        Hello there,

        My summerization is that unless you are one of those entities from Mt. Olympus (a god) prediction is not possible. Making plans (a matrix of some sort) for me anyway, is laying a field trap of digits and/or digit groups whereby the possible outcome can be triggered for a winning combination. I have won the pick 3 many times and I have lost too!

        Having a chance at winning any game, the player must have a well balanced strategy. Long time players know what I am referring to. Predictability comes only piecemeal or not at all. This is where a gamblers "gut" feeling comes in along with the plan of attack used.

          Guess I might as well give voice to what Tricky Dixon referred to as the Great Silent Minority:

          I think there's a middling chance they're entirely predictable.  But if it happens to be true, it shouldn't take anything away from the majority who believes it isn't.  And if it isn't true, nothing's lost in having believed it might be.

            How's this... maybe some winning combinations are  theoretically possible to predict but  no one has figured it out yet. Perhaps other winning combinations are totally predetermined and fixed from the beginning of time but known only to a race of superbeings residing in the 9th dimension. Other winning combinations are in a chaotic swirling state of probability flux and cannot possibly be known untill the nanosecond the last ball is drawn. There's probably even a winning combination that got overridden at the last minute by dark and sinister forces beyond our ken, and a wealthy investment banker just hit the jackpot because of it and is lounging naked on a beach on the Riviera when it should have been you.

              Notwithstanding all the arbitrary definitions of prediction, it still holds true that "money talks and BS walks." Everybody gets their numbers from somewhere, and if you're cashing tickets with your numbers, you're doing fairly well. If you're cashing for a true profit, you're doing very well. Without an effective betting strategy and sound money management, predictions are about as useful as a three-legged horse. Luck can either make you or break you. The bottom line is that it's very hard to argue with monetary success attained from picking numbers by any means by any name.

                Speaking of schools, has there been a poll on the level of education attained for those playing the lottery?

                  Seems to me there was one a while back.  I don't recall the exact results, but mostly our educational backgrounds seemed to be confined to somewhere between quitting school in the third grade to having a PHD or two. 

                  You might check the threads from May or early June... wasn't that long ago.

                      I predict (dare I say with 100% absolute certainty) that if I played 219 boxed numbers out of a combination of 220, I would still have the wrong number.

                        i'm surprized nobody said what i'm about to say. When i wake up in the morning or the night before when i am making my predictions for the day i look at my spread sheets and all the excel crap i have and say 000 is going to hit today and it dose. Did i predict the number, or guess the number. Prediction is forcasting. A lot of people predict numbers on lottery post every day and many of them repeaditly hit every day what do you call it if it's not predicting.

                          I have been to the forum where I got my 3/4 software. There is a person there who is in to the four game. He stated on one post that when he goes to the lottery office to turn in his winning ticket the people at the lottery office knows him by name as he has been there so frequently.
                          Sounds like he has something figured and he has made some post there about how he does his research.

                            Playing the lotto is a no brainer and doesn't require any level of education other than being able to ask for a quick pick.

                            I play to dream and dream of winning a major jackpot!

                              When I used to buy my Pick 3 tickets at a local convenience store, the lady that was always at the register would talk Pick 3 with me.  She would show me her winning ticket from the day before and she hit a LOT.  I asked her how she did it and she said that she would look out the window at the cars parked in the parking lot and get the 3 digits from the license plates.  I don't know how many she played each day, but she almost always would show me her winning ticket each morning!  She doesn't work there any more.  I wonder if she hit it really big.
