I am just curious how everybody determines what number they decide to pick. Also, it would be interesting to know, how many numbers do you typically play per game. And for those ways I didn't post, please take a moment to share it with us.

    I use a spreadsheet.

    And the maximum picks per game for me is 10 combinations.

      I use software mainly for predictions and spreadsheets for the statistics.

      Usually I play between 20-30 combinations.

        I use someone else's numbers which I purchased, and it is updated somewhat regularly.

          SirM,


          I'm experimenting with Letteredl Patterns. ABCDE

          I'm tracking 10 states that use machine drawings. Midday and Evening combined. No RNG's.
          Georgia-Kentucky-Maryland-Michigan-New Jersey-New York-Ohio-South Carolina-Tennessee-TriState

          I take each state's longest out VTRAC in all 3 positions and use this for my 1st Position.

          The second position is what I call the "B" Position or 2nd most out VTRAC in all 3 posiitions

          The elusive 3rd digit is determined by the last drawings VTRAC combination. If the last drawing was a "Double VTRAC" I would use the current "D" or "E" Position. This would be at least 1 VTRAC from the previous VTRAC drawings since they repeat around 80% of the time.
          For example: Georgia Evening VTRAC las night was 121. So my VTRAC Plays for Midday might be either VTRAC 451 or 452.

          If the last VTRAC drawing was a "No-Match" for example: Maryland evening was VTRAC 132. I would play either VTRAC combinations: 542 or 541.

          Playing 1 VTRAC combination would equal 8 combinations per state times 10 states = 80 combinations @ .25 = $20.00. Playing boxed plays. Hitting 1 state would be a $17.50 profit.

            I forgot to add that I use Excel to figure all this out.

                My paper pencil systems on a excel sheet compare two systems....

                narrow it down using a daily chart, play less than 10 combinations a day.

                  Yes NodThe software I use is a program that was especially made for my systems.  But for the most part I read the board as numbers hit using followers and relatives and I depend of that more than anything else.  That's why my motto is "You Can Take it to the Bank" because it's worked for me for many years over and over without failing.  If I didn't have software, all I would need were the results and pen and paper.

                        I use paper and pencil, but if I dream numbers, sometimes I will play those too.

                          Just an addendum to my earlier post on this thread: I only play jackpot lotteries twice a week, not Pick-3 or Pick-4 daily. We don't have pick3/4 in Norway.
