Okay, you're up $70.

That would be a nice way for me to get started is with a win, so tonight I will try to guess once again for fun before I actually try and play Monday for real.

 

I'm going to skip every other one from the bottom up and take 1, 6, 4, 8, 5 for tonight.

Hoping a double doesn't show up.

I don't find this much different than trading stocks and commodities, as I am familiar with. The only difference is that stocks and commodities are driven by human sentiment, and a few privilaged people who are working in the trading pits.

I think I'd rather take my chances with the Pick 3. Thumbs Up

        Up $70?  I don't think so!!  I play on line and a 6-way box pays $150 for a $1 bet, so I'm up $140.  I quit while I'm ahead!!

          are you sure a 6-way box pays $150? That seems a bit steep to me. A 3-way box pays $160 here. $1 play.

           

          Seems a person could run the tables on that amount of payoff to me. Point me to that site if you would. I should be playing that online game instead of my local game.

            You can use a couple of sites.  The one recommended on LP is called betslips.com.  Here is the payout chart:

             

            Unique Digits

            3 Pick Payout

            4 Pick Payout

            1

            900 to 1

            9,000 to 1

            2

            300 to 1

            2,250 to 1

            3

            150 to 1

            750 to 1

            4

            NA

            375 to 1

              BTW, the payout for a straight is the same as the "1 Unique Digits" in the above chart.  You can bet as little as 25 cents.  So, if you bet 25 cents straight and you hit, it would pay $225.  Not bad for a 25 cent bet!!

                This is really hard to believe, but I'm looking at BetSlips.com and my jaw is hanging wide open.

                I don't understand where they get the extra money? Is it an abundance of losers that make their payouts so much bigger than what the states give out? And why would BetSlips do that?

                Can BetSlips be trusted? That's the big question in my mind.

                It seems to me that I could play my box-6 and easily get ahead. Is it as easy as I think or can I lose my ass?

                What's up with this?

                  I wouldn't mind hearing a success story...

                   

                  "I started out with $100 in my BetSlips.com account and now, after 3 years, it's up to $6000..."

                   

                  Anything like that going on?

                    Betslips is promoted here because Todd found them to be reliable.

                      Ask LottoMike, he just won $2,225 there.  Personally, I have not been so lucky (yet).

                      By the way, I highly recommend NOT using another site that SOME Lottery Post members are using.  People will try to slip you hints on how to get to that "other" site, but I have seen actual communications that people have given me from that "other" site which indicates to me that they have not always been good to players.

                      You will hear some people saying that they never had a problem, but I could never in good faith recommend a site that has been shown to be bad to some players.  It's like playing Russian Roulette -- don't make the mistake, no matter what some people tell you.  It's better to be safe than sorry.

                       

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

                        I just congratulated LottoMike for his win. Can't wait for the follow-up to hear that the money is actually in his hands.

                         

                        It's hard for me to understand how BetSlips can afford the payouts that they give.

                         

                        I'm just a small peanuts player and want to test out some multi-state techiques such as selecting five digits for the Pick 3's.

                         

                        I might attempt to take on 3 states at first and see if I can average a couple wins in a week using the 6-way box with 5 digits.

                         

                        I should play it on paper and see what happens.

                         

                        Thanks for the heads up, Todd. I appreciate any help I can get.

                          every online site has a higher payout.  They want you to play there but that doesnt mean you'll come up a winner all the time.  I've played all states numerous times for $50-$100 a pop and came up empty handed and then ever blue moon I might hit for $225, $450 or $900 and get paid.  I dont worry about how they come up with the money.  If I ever hit and didnt get paid I will let everyone know!

                              Just throwing out some numbers here for tonight's pick 3, Oklahoma...

                              0, 3, 4, 5, 7 >>> generates 10 possible plays. That's my primary play

                              1, 2, 6, 8, 9 >>> The other half... The 'what if I'd played these instead' numbers.

                               

                              I have this feeling that these are absolutely wrong, so that might be a good sign. Just have to wait and see.
