        Now that the MegaMillions jackpot is $145M, lottery pools are being started.  Most pool just have an agreement to collect some money and buy a bunch of QPs and share the winnings, but having enough money to buy extra tickets should give some players a chance to try some different strategies to guarantee at least a small win.  For example a pool of $50 could include the most popular or all of the megaballs to guarantee a win of $2.  Knowing that half of the winning numbers have 3 numbers from the last seven drawings or 4 numbers from the last twelve drawings or 25% of the winning numbers have all 5 numbers from the last fifteen drawings should help someone come up with a strategies to win their friends some money.  I'm working on 46 lines for tomorrow drawing.  Good luck pool players.

        Conversely, the other half of the winning numbers do not have 3 numbers from the last seven drawings or 4 numbers from the last twelve drawings; or 75% of the winning numbers do not have all 5 numbers from the last fifteen drawings.

        Wherein lies the advantage?

        aye'

        RJOh and aye, you've both got good points...just important to be on the right side of the fence at the right time.

        I'm working on a strategy similar to RJOh's that deals with the number of draws each winner has been out.

        Good luck to all...I picked up my $1 on Saturday.

        JAG,

        I didn't really have any particular point in mind. I just started thinking about the flipside of RJOh's findings, and that prompted me to ask the question.

        We can analyze draw history in an infinite number of ways, but the statistics we come up with aren't always meaningful or useful. At any given point the numbers have to fall in some fashion, but I generally don't put much stock in such statistics unless there's a clear mathematical reason for them. Otherwise, they simply represent a snapshot of a single point in a rather elusive, ever-evolving stream of lottery results. Even those statistics which are more or less dictated by mathematics don't seem to offer any advantage; they simply restate the facts of the game in various ways.

        As RJOh stated, maybe the advantage lies in being in a pool. In a pool, at least you have a lot more number combinations going for you than you might ordinarily play on your own. That same advantage would apply no matter what method of number selection might be employed. Personally, I don't get mixed up in lottery pools, but they offer a better chance to get some part of the pot for those who are willing to assume their risks and uncertainties.

        aye'
