I was just thinking that no matter how hard we are working on finding the way to win, jackpots are usually won by lucky 'lottery-strangers' who just stopped by to buy a ticket with random numbers without any predicting and calculating stuff. Did anyone ever hear of any winner who actually hit the jackpot using his 'strategy'. Almost all the stories say that it was pure luck and often the numbers were even randomly picked by the machine.

I guess if anyone ever create a system of how to win, then lotteries will simply be gone as there will be no sense buying it. The jackpots will be around $ 1-2 dollars

I read on the Iternet that ony guy keeps winning 4 or 5 times in a row (hope, someone from this board ;) ) and a detective launched an investigation into that case 'cause he says he does not believe it's pure luck.

 

And, to be honest, if you found the system of how to win, a reeeaaaal system which REALLY works, would you share this at this forum?

 

Just curious,

Me

    In a large jackpot, you have to win with either luck or you need to buy enough tickets to allow skill (i.e., the improvement over random chance through careful selection) to be a factor.  Most winners appear to be persistent players, playing a small number of tickets regularly, while I've noticed a number of fairly large office pools who go on to win.  I think the point is that even if you can apply your knowledge and skill to improve your chances by a 100-fold over the given probabilities you still have to buy a lot of tickets to win the biggest lotteries to win by other than pure chance.

      Hi Buddyguard,

      Where did you read about someone winning a jackpot 4 or 5 times in a row?  What state or country?

      I haven't heard or read that one yet.

      Thanks,

        He's probably talking about the case of the couple who had a winning streak in the loser contest covered here: http://www.lotterypost.com/news/116981.htm

          Yeah... I heard about that a week ago. I forget what state, but they did an investigation on him and it turned out that there was nothing illegal happening. He claimed it was just luck.

          I've heard about a couple of people who've won the jacpot twice, some years ago. Talk about luck!

            Some people might win some pick 5 games using a wheel they chose. That wheel probably cost upwards of 150 dollars to play each time. However that wheel must contain every number that was drawn. It's finding and having placed those number in the correct position in the wheel that might produce the winning combination. Since nobody knows what numbers are going to be drawn it's a hit and miss thing for sure. However if you won a 500,000 dollar game you could afford to continue playing whatever version wheel you can afford to play. Some people who win end up spending half or more than they should trying to win a second time.
