I use my own SLOT system I kinda came up with, and plug numbers into a spreadsheet, and also go on prior history.

I play 10 games a drawing night, and usually get 4 of the 5 whiteballs, just not on the same game. I have picked all 5 whiteballs maybe 12

times since early March, just not all on the same game...... arghhh.

I have a pool of about 16 numbers I kinda wheel, all I am aiming for is a pick 5 at this time.

5 months ago I hit the Powerball number itself 5 of 6 drawings in a row, since then I have hit it about 3 times.

 

BTW - I'm new here. 

HI  Guesser,,

I to keep up with the spreadsheet..  different tabs for hot/cold, due, odd/even  etc..  I do it manually.  I wish  I could create an output page with the combine data. That will produce the best numbers to play and down to about 11 numbers.    I play the Powerball being that's all NC has for now.  I'll glad when the pick 3 and 4 come to  NC.. But anyways I was curious if you would share your spreadsheet with me.. Email it to me so I can see how you are doing it..Or explain to me how I can incorporate it into my spreadsheet for the Powerball.   Not to many  post about Powerball spreadsheets.. I'm still researching for on how to write an micro for it.... That's years in the making!! "LOL"  But I love Exce!!  Which to is my day job.. Reporting etc... 

Hope to hear from you soon...  Maybe we will hit one day..  If only I could get the white balls.  On the same row of course!"LOL" would make me happy.

    I use a program I wrote myself.  I use patterns; not mathematics.  I set the  parameters I want and let the computer go through all 576,000+ combinations, pulling out the number sets that match my pattern.

    If there are more than 25 number sets, I reset the computer and go again.  I only want 1 to 25 lines.

    Once I have these lines identified, I begin my financial planning.  I fill out the deposit slip (playslip), drive to my local bank (grocery store), make a deposit (exchange money for a ticket), and wait for my ship to come in (since I was born in 1944, I figure my ship got sunk by the Germans).

    I will win one of these days.  I will win one of these days.  I will win one of these day.  I will.......(keep repeating until you win)

      The US Navy lists all those submarines they never heard from during WWII as 'Still on patrol'. 

      I've got a notion your ship's still out there on patrol, navigational equipment all chicken noodle soup, radio communications equipment gone wockyjawed by interference, but still trying to find the way back to port.

      They reverse-engineered the Germans and Japanese into being our allies and the Russians and Chinese into being our enemies within a five year period it just got everything confused.

      I think you're going to get some new tires for that mobile home.

        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

          I just would like to give my opinions on what works and what does not. This is just what i have seen playing the california mega six and daily drawings. 

          First rcommendation, I would recommend is the process of elimination. What I mean is dont choose numbers combinations that have already been drawn before. For example, on June 15, 1998 the jackpot numbers were 3-10-29-35-44-50 dont choose these numbers again. It will slightly increase your chances if you use this.

          Second recommendation. Check the past winning numbers if many drawing combination arise in a consective order of numbers like 1-2-3-33-50 or 34-35-36-42-49 dont play that system. Its just a waist of time and money. Also, dont choose numbers in order.

          Third, playing family ages, birthdays, anniversery dates, weights of family members, fortune cookies, etc is a good idea since they will be played in random order. The more tickets you buy statistically it drastically increases your chances of winning.

          Fifth, What ever combination or system that you play always play at least one quick pick with it.

          If you guys really want a real chance to win a jackpot go play bingo. Yes I said bingo, the chances are much better in propertion to winning the sweeptakes or the lottery jackpot. good Luck!!  Big Smile

              Im a dream numbers man, I get highly accurate results every single time. I' confess i am hardly the mathmatician when compared to other lottery players on this site and their own strategies work for them constantly it seems. I've been tracking, well, myself for well over a year and a half and it took me sometime 2 relize that what I have I have potential to win thousands of thousands of dollars If i really wanted to at any time. I also check out some trusted peoples numbers and relate them to my own to get possibly even better combo's.

                I use gaps and/or skips to select 15 numbers for a pick 5 game. I then wheel the numbers to obtain 5 combinations to play. 

                Works for me!

                      I look at both the pick 3 and 4 for either midday or evening, and pick my draws from those combinations.

                        I too like to play dreams , they can be real money makers , they don't come every single time but you can bet on them 75% of the time and thats good enough for me , had a dream two days ago about money and had a boxed hit today with 756.  A really good dream book can make all the difference in a hit and a miss.

                        i also look at what the excellent players here on the LP and doing and try to compare with what im playing to narrow it down.
