Jack,

I don't know that anyone here is capable of actually defining a jackpot system. Most of the systems I've seen around here are just intricate ways of re-randomizing or rearranging numbers. In the end, I guess it doesn't really matter if you can cash for more than you're pumping into the lottery. Or maybe all you have to do is get your money's worth in fun and excitement.

Personally, I get quite a charge out of thinking up systems and crunching the numbers. I can't tell you how many times I've been filled with anticipation for a drawing because I was sure that I'd finally cooked up a winning system. Well, I've had a lot of fun, but I've not hit a jackpot so far. I'm not even close to being ahead.

Having said all of that, I'd say that a system should have:

• a clearly defined objective,
• a rationale behind the number selection method,
• a rationale as to why those numbers should hit,
• a method for putting those numbers into play, and
• strict guidelines for money management in betting.

Good luck,

aye'

Good to see you posting, aye'.  Haven't seen you around for a while.

Best to you,

J,

I agree, I think the LP prediction board is an excellent place to test any lottery theory or system.  It may have flaws but they apply equally to every predictions.

I prefer using a system to pick numbers even if it doesn't work because I enjoy the challenge of picking a winner even when I lose (more enjoyment for the buck).  I plan to predict more WV Cash25 and keep an eye on Padawan's results also, maybe I will be convinced that picking numbers using Expert Lotto is more enjoyable than picking them using my system, after all winning is enjoyable too. I will continue tweaking and testing my system too hoping to come up with a winner. Good luck to you.

Hi shalini:

Been wondering whether you'd snagged a jackpot and driven off in a Rolls Royce to where ever people go when they ain't around.

Good seeing you, although if you vanish because you experienced an explosion of money, it's reason enough.

Thanks,

J
