bring it on people!! i'm excited now. i tried my 1st wheel from l p tonite on the western canada 6 49 draw. i used the abbreviated 12 number wheel. had to buy 6 tickets..i got 3 and the bonus(bonus don't count)..won 10$. not much of a profit, but i still won. the quick picks the machine generated weren't even close. would like some thoughts on what's the best way to play wheels. i'm not looking to buy many tickets, maybe max 10 to 12. today i just looked at the last 5 draws and chose some that were drawn and some that weren't. never seen the hot or cold data. i know out of 49 numbers you won't pick 3 or 4 constantly..maybe keep the same tickets for awhile...thanks for the replies.

    Awesome, I'm glad your first experience was a good one!

    I think wheels, whether they're big or small, are the only way to play a lotto game to win.  Quick Picks are "you're in it to win it", but lacking any kind of strategy (obviously).  Playing favorite numbers scattered among different tickets is better than that, but things get good when you place those favorite numbers into a good wheel.

    Since you're a Platinum member, be sure to also check out Full Wheels with Filtering.  You'll want to play around with the filters for a while to see how they work, and when you do that you'll see how cool they are.

    It's a totally different strategy of coverage than Abbreviated Wheels, since your coverage is based on number patterns and trends, rather than mathematics.

    More than anything, be prepared for long-term fun and work.  There are so many different things you can do with wheels that you can spend a lifetime tinkering with different methods.  As you try different things, be sure to let us know about your progress!

    Cheers

        2nd wheel done for last wednesday, i hit 1 number for the western 6 49. tonight, i came back strong!! played the 12 number abbreviated wheel once again and hit 4 out of 12 giving me 2 sets of 3 numbers and 20$. cost of play 6$. 

        the winning numbers were...8-10-12-22-28-47 . my 2 best tickets were:

        9-12-15-22-27-47...3#'s..10$ 

        9-11-12-28-40-47..3#'s..10$

        i look at what has fallen in the previous 4 or 5 draws and just pick some numbers. i noticed a lot of from the 30's came out the last few draws, so i only played 1 from that set. the western 6 49 prizes are set..4 numbers gets you 50$..5 numbers gets you 500$...not that great of a payout, but i like playing this 1..they give you a quick pick with each set you play or else 2 quick picks for the price of 1$. of course, the 6 quick picks generated by the machine here gave me 1 lousy number. my next question is...to have got the 4 numbers on 1 line..i guess i would have had to play more numbers?? the balanced wheel puts each of the numbers on 3 tickets. can anyone tell me how to improve in the area of wheeling. do you have to buy more tickets or is there another way of getting more than 3  winning numbers on  a line?? hope i made sense. i recall using the abbreviated wheels from lotto pro, but didn't get diddly. i think i'll go to work monday and try and persuade the group leader in playing a wheel for a bit. better than lousy quick picks.

          Good job tungsten chief on your good wheel. Keep it up. Normally, when I do a Pick6 wheel, I usually randomize 12 numbers that come out first and then randomize those numbers.

              wow. best nite so far...check my predictions for western 6 49 sat. feb. 18th. posted 6 lines from abbreviated 12 number wheel...got 1 prize of 4 numbers and 2 prizes of 3 numbers...total 70$. but, yeah i know i didn't post this, anyway, i changed to a 14 number wheel..14 tickets..i hit ...2 prizes of 4..100$ total...and 2 prizes of 3 numbers..20$...120$..cost 14$..not bad. i love these wheels man..it's just a matter of time before the group at work says" randy, you pick our numbers for a wheel". quick picks suck!! a woman at work says most of the people win with quick picks..well of course..because the percentage of tickets bought are mostly quick picks. i'm bragging monday peoples:)

                just finished fiddling around with the wheel. my winners from yesterday could have been a lot more. it depends what order your numbers are put in. 1 ticket would have had 5 numbers..if the numbers were  placed differently. i found the taj mahal!!! can i show my ticket here when i win the big one:) how do you do it??

                  Congratulations on your wins, Tungsten Chef.

                  I would like to put my 2 cents (Canadian?) worth in. 

                  When I predict here on LP, predicting for Pick 5 or Pick 6 I normally use a high guarantee like 5 if 6 for Pick 6 and 4 if 5 for Pick 5.  That is only because I'm trying for the big win on Lottery Post!  In real life that is not what I play.  I like the smaller guarantees.  If you have the money, for a Pick 6 you can play a 5if5/14 for 371 tickets or 4if4/19 for 325 tickets.  The trick, of course, with any wheel is picking the correct numbers to put into the wheel.  If you think you have found a way to pick 14 good numbers with consistency, then I would go with the 5if5.

                  What I always play here in California for the Fantasy 5 (39 numbers) is a 2if2/30 for 49 tickets.  I haven't hit the big prize yet (hit 4 of 5 once), but we get a free replay for having 2 correct.  I amaze the clerks when I hand them my "winning" tickets and they see all those free replays! 

                  That's my way of playing for what it's worth!

                    Looking at the payouts for the Canada 6/49 I would not recommend the wheels I mentioned!!  The payout for getting 4 correct is only about $75. 

                    But at least I put forward my ideas about wheels!  Hopefully they will help people (even in Canada!) to pick a wheel that they like and that works for them.

                            4 wins of 3 numbers tonight on the western 6 49. once again used the abbreviated 4 if 6 out of 12 wheel. total 40$. incorrect win amount. western pays 10$ for 3 numbers, not 5$ as posted in the prediction winners thread. lots of odd digits coming..last 3 draws...6 odd...6 odd...5 odd. i got 3.. 4 number wins in 2 draws using the wheel. that would never happen buying quick picks!! oh yeah, 14 bonus quick picks..once again....zero..diddly..nada. bring it..whats on tap for saturday:)
