On the side of the lottery post page, they have "how to win the lottery" books. I mean Lottery is all by chance isn't it? I don't thinking reading a book can higher your chances of winning the mega millions or Powerball.  its like 1 of 170,000,000 chances you'll win.

     I worked in casinos for many years and being in the business, looking through gambling books I get to about page 6 before I think, "This guy is a bs artist, too." (The latest seeming to be books on craps that give great importance to how you hold the dice and what numbers you set them on to roll them)

    I don't know a whole bunch about lotteries but I'd say maybe a pick3 or even pick 4 system could possibly work. But like they say in Vegas about football parlay cards, "Anything beyond a three-teamer is just like trying to hit a keno ticket."

    No matter what form of gambling you're talking about, hardly anyone mentions the luck factor, and you are indeed right, a lot of it is luck. We would see people come into the casino and make the worst bets possible, yet color out and alk to the cage while the "smart betors" were getting clobbered. One of our bosses just used to see that and say, "Born under the right star, what can I tell you?"

      I would like to offer my suggestion on books and reading material for the daily pick 3 & 4 games. I have been very successful with the information that I have received from Dan Hudson's books. He has a few  books out and other information.

      You might want to do a google search on his name. I do know he has a web site too.

       

      Good luck to everyone!

        I don't think it takes a book to offer a system to choose numbers. What I got from books was factual information (which is now freely available here at Lottery Post). Like how to Wheel your numbers, for example.

          There is some lottery information that can be useful in forming a strategy for playing lottery.  It isn't totally unreasonable to pay for a leg up on the game if you don't have the time to read thousands of posts.  Of course how you do with any strategy beyond wheeling guarantees is mostly a matter of luck.

          Say for example you decide to target an all even number draw.  Well it helps to know this kind of draw comes around about one time in one hundred draws so you can see when such a draw is due.  As you only have to deal with 24 rather then 49 numbers you can buy a 4if6 wheel for less then 150 lines, after that luck decides whether the wheel plays above its guarantee.

          Most of what you need is here on LotteryPost free and better with premimum membership and at http://www.lotto-logix.com/ for articles and ideas to start building your own strategy.   BobP

            Hi there Korean,

            My advise to you is read everything possable about the lottery game your interested in on LP (It's free.

            PB or MM or regular lotto's like cash5 ect. are all available for everyone here on LP and it's free to read. If you play the pick 3/4 games then read the threads and do a search to things you are looking for. There is many people here on LP that have more knowledge then any book will ever have. The pick 3 I would say is the most popular game played.

            Time has changed since most books were put out. We now have online play and multiple state play PB and MM online play and many other ways of playing. When books are written they are written up to that point in time so you will not beable to get up to date info.

            Also other things I have noticed about books are they are never current on the latest lotto info. If you check most books they were published usually years ago if not at least 1 year ago. Old information. Also your relying on someone else to give you accurate information when there information is already 6 months old by the time they get the book published and in the store/web.

            I have read alot. I have a lot of books and not one book I have ever paid for had current up to date info. in it.

            Not only that PB is now a bigger since the update. No current book is going to tell you how to wheel it. Hasn't been out long enough for someone to write another scam book of the same information over and over again.

            Also I'm not saying books won't help but, mostly everthing I find on the net unless it's a current webpage updated periodically which most are not you will not beable to find any current information.

            Best advise is from the one doing the actually winning and betting. Books can not do that for you.

            There has been so many scams out there and duplicate books out there reworded like it's a brand new subect but, to only find out that it's the same book you got last month with the words rearrange. This happens.....Ebay is a good example of this..

            We need more up to date books out there. Not scams that say the same thing the other people have said before but, just rearrangeed to look and sound better.

            So far the most recent upto date book is not a book it's here on LP with real people playing and giving there real advice.

            So depending upon what you are looking for ask away to the LP members here. I'm sure we will try to help guide you to the right resouces to help you win.

            PP

             

            P.S. I actually got some great idea just reading the Steve Player catalog. It's free. He gives a lot of information in there of some what of what he is doing in his systems. The hints are great!! His programs are over priced but, the free catalog is worth $$$ for the brain. LOL

            Good luck to everyone!!!

              The bottom line is that even if your method improves your chances by 100-fold, your odds of winning are still in 1 in 1.7 million dollars.    I think a more realistic objective is to improve your odds by two to ten times chance.  That's why most people who play systematically are playing the pick 3s and pick 4s which have lower stated odds.  There's also the matter that these games have more frequent secondary wins so you have greater feedback on whether your approach actually improves your results.

                Powerplayer, your post sounds like good advice. How do I get the Steve Player Catalog?

                  Steve Player is in New Hampshire, and asks $2 for the catalog.

                  It's pretty thick. 

                   I'm sure of you search Steve Player you'll find a link or two.

                          Hi Korean Redneck,

                                Check out Gail Howard's web site.  There are dozens of winners who give credit to her for winning their jackpots.  She gives some free advice there too!  Good luck

                            I'm not a big fan of Gail Howard's bloated wheels.  I think they cost too much, and you can get more budget-friendly coverage by using the wheels posted here on Lottery Post. 

                            In other words, if you want to wheel a certain group of numbers with a particular guarantee, the Lottery Post wheels can offer that guarantee in fewer lines (i.e., fewer dollars) than Gail Howard's wheels.

                              Most here seem to bash Gail and her wheels but it's interesting how nobody here offers number selection strategy, which she clearly explains.  A wheel is only as good as the numbers put into them but nobody here offers HOW to select the numbers, which might explain how nongail wheels don't seem to be quoted here as having helped somebody win big, or less than big, or even small.  Go figure.
