The only reason I discussed my theories with anyone is because I was hoping they could help me refine them, prove or disprove something, or maybe see something I was missing...
I hear you. That's an excellent reason.
Seems to me so long as a system's flawed enough to keep a person from getting a big win with it, sharing ain't a problem.
For Pick 5 and Multi-State Jackpot games nobody's going to believe it, anyway.
At least they won't believe it until it's demonstrated by a several-win series on the prediction board, or by an actual 2 each win series of real-money wagers, that it works (which you'd probably not be motivated to announce).
If you managed to get a big hit or two on the prediction board to help you refine what you're trying to do, you'd probably still be safe so long as you didn't continue doing it.
Take a look at Expert Lotto and the testing Padawan's doing on it. Those tests are showing better success than anything I've ever seen on LP. But nobody's raising an eyebrow.
I theorize to myself that's because LP members mostly don't believe Pick 5s and higher can be beaten by any system. Or, like you, like me, they're off trying to find the perfect system for themselves and don't have time to allow one developed by someone else into the equation.
Which ain't at all true of Pick 3 and Pick 4.
The V-Trac guy the Lottery Bible Baby, everyone's shouting about what fine Pick 3 systems they have, and those who aren't shouting about their great systems are shouting praises and singing hosanas for the people who developed them and shout numbers across the ether daily as 'this one's for sure'.
If Pick 3 can be beaten by a system (and I'm prepared to believe it can, even though the systems currently in use haven't put anyone at the top of the predictions page and kept them there), it's a cause for wonderment anyone would believe differently about Pick 5 or PBMM.
Maybe you're the man who's finally come up with it, with something better than the probably good, but evidently limited Expert Lotto system.
If so, please think of me as your new best friend.
Absorb the good, ignore the bad, weigh the ugly.
It's about number behavior.
Egos don't count.
