Hi,

I've been using simple math functions of addition, multiplication and division in an attempt to get at least two correct numbers each day on a consistent basis.

The reason for two numbers and not three or more is because it is easier to do. I want to double my money each drawing. The only way to do it, building from $1, is to do it every day and not miss a day.

After seven draws, total in my pocket would be $128, having just started with $1.

So far, I have won three drawings out of six. The losing three drawings had one correct digit on two draws, and off by one digit on the remaining draw - it was 2-10, I had 1 and 9.

It's amazing to watch the result, it's just not right on everyday. It skips a day or two until a winner hits. The neat part is when it's wrong, it's wrong by just a fraction like .46 shy of going on up to the correct digit to play.

Anyway, if you get 2 right in Texas, it's $2 on a $1 bet, and I play just one selection of numbers - no scattershot strategy - just one group of 5 digits.

First Draw bet $1 -win $2

2nd Draw bet that $2-win back $4

3rd Draw bet that $4-win back $8

4th Draw bet that $8-win back $16

5th Draw bet that $16-win back $32

6th Draw bet that $32-win back $64

7th Draw bet that $64-win back $128

Then it really gets serious at this point, IF the consistency can be achieved. So, I'm at 50% and looking for some math fine-tuning. That's the plan. It means having the clerk print out dozens and dozens, if not hundreds of tickets all with the same group of five digits for that day's draw.

Does anyone out there do anything like this to build your winnings over a week or two and so on, without trying to get the whole pot at every drawing? Thanks.

Hi, Texasman,

How are you doing? Are you going to tell us how you derive at your 2 numbers or is this your own secret system? What you're doing here seems like the Martingale system, I think that's what they call it, like in roullette and blackjack where you increase your bets after you lose. Maybe I'm wrong but at first glance that's what it looked like to me. Or a pyramid way of betting. You are right, IF the consitency can be achieved then this would probably be a fine way to make some money but that IF is the word that can get scary. Saw your numbers for yesterday and you only got 1 so when you lose do you bet more the next day? This sounds like a risky system. It's depending on those 2 numbers. What if you go days without getting them? I'm not trying to be a naysayer, I'm all for people fine tuning and using their own systems. I know you see what I'm trying to do. I'm encouraging that you work at it until you CAN hit those 2 numbers all the time if that is what your system is based on. I know what you mean about being 1 number off! Me too!

One other question I had was what did you mean about the clerks printing out dozens of tickets?

Hi,

Thanks for your interest and comments.

I will share this when I can decide how to clearly explain it. It's simple and takes me only 5-10 minutes to get my 5 numbers.

No, I do not increase my bet after I lose. I play $1 on one set of numbers I get each day until I win. Then I play those winnings the next draw. If I lose the next draw, I'm out my original dollar and the winnings. No, I don't pour a bunch of my own money into it each day or after I lose.

The only thing I am risking is one of my own dollars on the first draw. If I lose then the next day I spend only $1. It takes great restraint and patience. I do not intend to throw MY money at it, but that of the state's money.

If I go days with hitting a simple winner, then I have only lost $1 for each day, instead of $10 or $40 like some people lose. As I go along I am keeping the core of my method intact while seeking the fine adjustments that won't interfere with the established accuracy - so it won't change a good number into a bad one, but add another good one to the selection.

My view is that IF a person can get one digit correct each day by what he is doing, then there is something more to be done to get a second number correct each day. Why must it falter at only one correct digit? A couple of weeks ago, it produced three correct numbers and I only played $1 that day and had a $9 profit. This was before a bit more fine-tunig and betting strategy was determined.

The clerks at the convenience store will have to run my playslip through numerous times on the same number - like 48 times, or 128 times, when I build my consistency up. Right now, I am playing $1 and $2. The thrd drawing where I wanted to get back $4, took my $2. But only $1 of it was originally from my pocket.

I will try to explain what I do on another post. See your Private Message Lottolaughs.

Hi Texasman,

I can't find many post on Texas games. It seems to me that Cash 5 has fairly good odds, as someone wins Nearly every draw (35K or so). (I tried Pick 3 & like you, the well got very dry!) However, I lrecently studied the history of Pick 5 and found nearly 50% are QP. Are we spinning our wheels using our devised systems? (Mine is Excel). I'M new over here and I appreciate your advice...I would like to think I can have some impact with formulas ..Possible? Thanks for you imput. Is there a TX group here I haven't found?

Texasman:

Your strategy strikes me as a sound one. You might look over the following list of combinations to see if any of them appear to fit into the sets you've already come up with for tomorrow:

Hope you managed to get some use out of that texasman. I'd guess those sets will do as well or better tonight, though you're still going to have to apply some magic for those other two numbers.

All the numbers that hit tonight were among the 20 unique numbers in those combinations.

12 25 6 11 33

12 6 17 23 27

Those were the only paying combinations unless I've overlooked some.

So, the combos I'm generating aren't working, but the numbers are narrowed down a bit. I hope it helps you a bit, anyway, having only 20 numbers to work with instead of 37.

I have a pencil/paper system I use for picking Texas Cash 5 numbers.

Basically, I keep track of the gaps, skips and combined gaps and skips using a fairly simple procedure.

Generally, I play 15 numbers, but I have wheeled 18 and 22 numbers. When playing 15 numbers, I chose 4 As (1-9), 4 Bs (10-19), 4 Cs (20-29), and 3 Ds (30-37.) If I play 18, I add one each to A, B,C.

I'm on a budget, so I only play 5 sets with 15 numbers. I usually will play 10 sets when I pick 18 or 22 numbers. I've learned that the more numbers one wheels, the higher number of sets one needs to get a good spread of numbers. I play everyday, or $30 a week.

For the first time, I have posted my 5 sets on the prediction board for today for Texas Cash 5 I plan to post everyday for awhile to establish a base of data. If my wins are sufficient, I'll explain how use of gaps and skips can be useful when making what I call "organized guesswork.)

When I say gap, I'm not referring to how long a number has been out of play. It's much more complicated than that.

Please excuse me if I am missing something. How do you figure this out? I know you use math but how do you get the results. Can you give an example in math terms?

Hi All To get my numbers i use the week before as a basis to choose my numbers,i also use the math sum of the draw before,The one i found most helpful is using the pick 3 by Date,for example we know that the 222 hit on the 8th of a month in the past i would surely use the 20's in my choices,Goodluck all

Hi, Texasman,

How are you doing? I am like lottolaughs are you going to tell how you derive at the 2 numbers or keep it to your self. I am in Texas and play the cash 5 also.
