    Free lotto and iwon.com are legit buy signing onto them will cause your email box to be flooded with many emails for goods and services it is part of their way to fund these games by promoting advertisements. So be for warned if you join be prepaired to deal with that part of the process.

    However if you receive an email that says you won a lottery and you didn't play the game then it's a scam.

      Every legitimate lottery is a scheme to make money for somebody and that's not you.  There are some free e-mail lotteries that seem to be legitimate, but they want your e-mail address and other personal information to sell to advertisers and chances are you're not going to win anything either.  Bottom line, if you don't buy a lottery ticket chances are you're not in a lottery.

        If you're not betting at the local lottery store, your only option is the oen's that Todd recommends.  Count up the number if winners in a lottery, and you'll see your not going to win any big money in the long run. Do it for the challange, with a remote hope of hitting, or take up NASCAR.

        Cheers

          I bet powerball about twice a week and megabucks twice a week. It is a challange to see where the number are going to land or how close I can get.  Just by tracking numbers. I was curious about the free lotteries thing because i recently came across a website that uses the state lottery numbers that are drawn of Wendesday and Satuarday nights.

            kariann,

            You should check the PB challenge in the jackpot section, players try to predict the winning numbers within a group of 10 numbers.  I seldom play PB because MM is played in Ohio, but I matched 3 in last night challenge.

              Rjoh,

              Thanks I'll do that.

              Tip check the history of the powerball draw against the history of the megamillions draw, for the last year, it might give you an idea of what's coming up on the mm.

                Rjoh,

                I know this sound wierd, but just check it out. In playing the lottery for the last 8months or so. I've come really close generally one number off or I've been able to predict 3 out of six and even 4 out of six. But I do this by running an excell spread sheet, and looking at lotteries that are similiar. Being close doesn't pay as much as being right on the money.

                I don't share my predictions because someday I'm going to be right. and call me selfish I want it all for myself.

                Take a look at september, find the most probable numbers that are going to hit for that month. Generally skip the year before. Then find the oldest combination and change every other number. It might sound funny but some numbers like a particular month more so than other months.

                As I said before numbers are random and not random. Trying to find the balance between the the two is the hard part. 

                I started playing the lottery because I think numbers are cool. Sounds like a geeky thing to say. But they are. another suggestion is try taking the first number of the last draw times or divided by pi.  In the powerball  it has shown me quite a few times what the lead number is going to be for the next draw.

                Right now I'm focusing only on one lottery. That's the megabucks. Once I win that its on to the next challange, the powerball and mega millions. Yeah I said when I win. Not if I win.

                  kariann,

                  One of the changes I'll be making to the predictions board (for lotto games only) is the ability to hide the numbers you're predicting until after the results are posted.  That will allow you to show proof of your progress, while protecting your numbers to be sure you don't end up splitting a jackpot because someone else played your predictions.

                   

                  Check the State Lottery Report Card
                  What grade did your lottery earn?

                    That sounds like a good idea Todd!

                      Players who post numbers that can't been seen until after the drawings will not be predicting but can verify their systems capabilities.  Members who want to share their ideas about lotto games but not the jackpot if they get lucky should like that feature.  It will be interesting to see if those who claim to have a system that winning will use the feature to verify or test their claims.

                        Rjoh,

                        Your very correct. On that.. I expect in another week or so I'll start back in on my powerball matrix, but I'm working on another project right now. Once a start working on it again I will start posting my predictions. But anything I post do a plus or minus 1.

                        Maybe I'll create a great lottery busting system that I can charge $20.00 for. Or not. This is what I think of lottery systems they can point you in the direction you want to go. But why would they have to charge people if they had a full proof system don't they already have enough?

                          Most people who take the time to write any program that looks and acts decent want to be compensated for their effort by those who want to use it.  Besides, compensations is the most common way for people to show their appreciation and who would want to spend time working for anyone who doesn't appreciate it?

                            I'm getting ready to log off so I can watch live on T.V an native american warning come true on the weather channel. First the white buffalo came and now the hurricane. Intresting how some predictions really do come true.

                              Somewhere  between all and nothing lies most lottery systems and software.  There are crooks and people really trying to help.  There are free lottery games see http://www.lotto-logix.com/games.html and read the article on playing the free lotto games.  It's a hard choice to pick those safe to play that will pay if you win, but if you can't spend the dollars you can spend the time instead to play lotto for less.
