If you had a good system you would be foolish to share it with others until you had used it to your satisfaction.  First, you came up with it and it is your system to do as you wish.  Second, there is no law requiring you to share with others.  Third, the lotteries MIGHT change the rules, but I can't really see how unless they limited how many numbers you could bet.  The real issue is not the state lottery commissions, but the online casinos that offer Pick 3 and Pick 4 games.  These can be entered by computer.  Most state games require that you physically fill out each betslip and hand it to the cashier for processing.  That is how the states really limit their liability.  It is physically taxing to enter all of those numbers at the local convenience store.

    orangeman.i can say one thing i love the fact that i can paste my numbers online and play them and not have to stand in line at a store all day.add the fact that you can bet a quarter for each number and double the amount of numbers you can play than if you were betting a state lottery makes it even more better.plus the payouts are higher online.i'm surprised the state lotteries haven't lost a lot of business due to this.........

      I thought they did come up with some sort of rule limiting the number of tickets (each) person can buy in a trip to the store after that Australian syndicate bought like 10 or 12 million tickets awhile back and won 23 mill (??)

        I'm sure lottery officials use the LP website as one of many sources to see what lottery players are thinking and noticing about their games.  When the PB game had all those 5/5+0 winners, lottery officials traced the source of those numbers to the factory that made the fortune cookies with the winning numbers, so if some one noticed a flaw in any game that would give players an edge and post it, that flaw would be corrected right away.  So far I haven't read any posts that would concern any lottery officials.

        When the LP system forum first started I posted my system and every reason I thought it was a winner and I haven't had anything worth posting since and that system hasn't won any big money either.  It wouldn't be smart if someone noticed something that gave a player an edge of winning a jackpot to share it with a bunch of strangers in a public forum before they had a chance to take advantage of it.  The odds of that ever happing is less likely than actually winning a lottery.


        That fortune cookie factory still there?
        Or has it burned down in the middle of the night suspiciously.

          (Exclude Pick 3 and Pick 4 from this):

          We can post all the theories we want about jackpot games, back testing, etc....but it all falls under woulda shoulda coulda until someone hits solid.

          Til then, it's kind of like a person who is 150 pounds overweight giving out diet and fitness advice.  

           Of course, once someone does hit solid and win a jackpot and hang around, anything they say will be "gospel".

              The States have lost lotto business to Betslips.com and others with off-shore computers.  Why else would Congress be considering outlawing the practice?

                How much "proof" does it require to convince wager buffs that there are system's available to assist in sensible wagering practice's that can genuinely lead to success? There is never, I repeat NEVER, going to be a system available that will hand to you, (on a platter), the exact winning numbers to wager without personal time, involvement, understanding, commitment, and cost. Anyone thinking anything else is totally waisting there time and living in a total time gap that would be better off spent studying Greek Mythology. This graph provides positive evidence that systems DO work when positive commitment is applied, and sensible, timely, effort is provided. The lines ending in a + were PREDICTED utilizing the StatPath 5 Lotto System.

                  One jackpot.  One "did" is better than 10,000 "coulds" (or in the case of lottery jackpots, millions of "coulds").

                  That was my point. We can extrapolate, look for trends, patterns, etc...etc... ad nauseam (and we do!), but let a member of the board say, "I just didn't have time to work out my numbers so I got $10 worth of Quick Picks, and son of a gun, I won $96,000,000"  and guess how people will be playing the next draw.

                   No different really then people flocking to a store that sold the winner.

                  I'm not talking about doping out the numbers or not, I'm talking about how people react.

                    Do note that the above post is addressing the question in the OP;

                    If you have not posted publicly something you noticed in the numbers, why not?

                    and the poll options. That implies the thread is asking those who don't post such observations, not those who do, nicht var?

                      You guys are making this into something much larger than I intended.

                       

                      A 'system' can be nothing more than picking numbers out of the clear blue sky, right ?  I mean, if some of those numbers hit, then it is a system, right ?     Now, is it a 'system', or pure dumb luck ?  

                      *MY* intent of *MY* system is to eliminate numbers I don't feel will hit today, which, in turn, MAY help me choose numbers to play.

                       

                      It's funny to see people harp on their systems when a few numbers hit, yet these folks say NOTHING when they don't have any picks at all.

                      Well, wait, they do say something, they tell us 'nothing is guaranteed to hit all of the time'.

                      That is as true a statement as I have ever heard, I call it 'Luck of the draw'.

                          Numbers for most people aren't the same as numbers here on LP.

                          On LP when numbers hit it's skill.

                          A bit like blackjack in that regard.

                          When you win, it's skill.

                          When you lose, it's the fault of some guy who just split 10s or hit a 16 (no matter what the dealer had).

                          In a pinch, it might even be the fault of the pit boss looking over the shoulder of the dealer, or the cameras making you nervous.

                          Which is why I don't say nuthun when my moon numbers don't hit.

                            Well, I got 3 out of 5 in Illinois Little Lotto tonight:

                            Mine

                            6 10 20 27 35

                            Drawn

                            10 16  27 30 35 

                            3 out of 5 no big deal, but "if only" the 6 had been a 16 and the 20 had been a 30.....

                            Oh the numbers? No, not a QP - I took them off of the back of a Subway gift card

                              Not have any winning numbers is quite common, why would anyone think it should be news worthy even if they were picked by someone who once picked a winner?
