Ever had a system that you play for months, it's gold, and as soon as you tell folks, it dies ?

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.

    Some posters post their theories and are offended when anyone has an uncomplimentary remark about it.  Some have gone as far as to blame a negative response for their theory/system failure.

      RJOH:

      You might be correct that some have posted theories and become offended by negative remarks.  You and I, as much as anyone else on the board, ought to be aware that ego's a major piece of LP.

      On the other hand, you've chosen a twist in words in a way that doesn't quite describe reality when you say,

       "Some have gone as far as to blame a negative response for their theory/system failure."

      I seriously doubt anyone has ever blamed negative response (sniping, baiting, etc, ridiculing would describe what happens more accurately) for the failure of a theory or system to work.

       However, sniping, baiting, and ridiculing has certainly succeeded many times in causing people who wanted help with potential systems, wanted to discuss potential systems, even wanted to share potential systems to lose their taste for doing so.

      We're blessed by the fact that not all do.

        I don't blame anyone for anything, because when it's all said and done, the randomness of pure LUCK reigns supreme.

         

        You can bet your patutty if someone had a foolproof system, the lottery would be dead. 

         

        I am of the absolute belief that a 'system' can get you 3 numbers consistently - but the other 2 you need ?  PURE LUCK for one, if not both of them.   Maybe a 'system' can even bag you 4, but not all 5.    

        At what point do you attribute winning to 'a system' vs. 'the luck of the draw' ?

        The proof in that statement is that the usual number of 70% of winning tickets are quick-picks, those folks didn't have a 'system', yet the numbers they were given did FIT into a system, somewhere, but those folks didn't play a system, they played by the luck of the draw.

         

        On the other hand, this is still just a fun game, no different than a bunch of folks playing Texas Hold'Em and trying to bluff or outguess what the other folks have.......  except we are trying to outguess what a machine will randomly throw at us....
