I "THIN SLICED" 4 out of 6 numbers again!

For the 4th time in a year and a half, I hit 4 out of 6 numbers in PA's 6/38 game (for $40.)

I just missed 5 out of the 6 because I failed to play a hunch number-- I went with the number 6 instead of 7-- actually I felt torn.  Had I done so, I would have nabbed $2000.  I didn't think to play an alternative ticket to include the 7.  Oh well!

How did I select my numbers all four times?  Through Gail Howard's Chart #4 and Chart B and a few other means I devised myself.  I did not use any wheeling systems.

Why?  Because while I believe that wheeling can be useful and does have its rightful place, number selection must take priority over and above wheeling.  I "wheeled" or "selected" the number combinations in my head while studying the charts.

Thinslicing is a term used in the best seller BLINK by Malcolm Gladwell; it refers to being able to deduct or intuit the correct information based on a non-exhaustive analysis of information or data.  His book is filled with examples (none from the lottery in case you are wondering).  I have said here before many times that if you know what a chart reveals, you can "apprehend" or approximate what might happen.  Well, I did that to grab 4 out of 6 numbers.  Yesterday, I only spent about 10-12 minutes on selecting my numbers (I bought 7 total).

Next time, I want the 6 out of 6 to grab $3000./month for life.  You can have your impossible odds Megamillions and Powerball "jackpots"-- $3000./month for life is just fine for me!

In other words, the old Zen saying summarizes it all quite well, "How do you hit the bullseye?"

The answer, "Don't aim!"

Stop "aiming" everybody!  Just thinslice!  Now get busy! :-) 

(Send me a private message if you too have read the book and are applying the intuitive concept to playing the lottery.)

    Well said !

    $40 in your hand are better than 100, 000, 000 in the sky that you might never get, let us get real, $3 000 a month for life does look real good.

    Let us come down to earth some, the cash 5 or pick 5 game is a really good deal, something more or less maybe with-in means of getting it when compared to almost impossible to win games like MM and PB and other pick 6 games, with or without mega balls and or power balls.

    Good luck to all.

      "Greg" you finally discovered the secret of hitting the numbers game,I too use Gail Howards software along with LottoMan and devised a "New" strategy where I select 9-10 numbers too wheel by position (no regular wheeling system is used either) into " 2 combinations " my first try this weekend  yielded a 3 number hit for $15 I play 4 days a week and played Mon but haven't had a chance too check my numbers yet.Developing a very good number selection strategy is the "key" along with an method of arranging them into winning combinations be it a conventional Wheeling system or something of your own creation.

        I agree!! Hyper

        The pick 5 games are the best!
