I just realize something..I realize that the present day lottery are more like Bingos....In bingo, you pick some cards with some numbers and if you match them you win..In Mega million since most people play quick picks, the computer select the numbers (bingo cards if you think about it), and it you match the numbers you win...

Yeah a person gets to chose his/her number if he likes, but the odds are so high, picking one's own numbers if futile...I think that picking ones own number doesn't not give a person an advantage over quick picks...The wheeling factor may give an advantage over quick pick in short range games (e.g 1-20, 1-25), but wheeling is futile on keno, Powerball and a pick 6, 1-60 game which is where most games are eventually headed...

That's why i feel that since they got the odds so high and ranges so high/far they may as well call the present day lotteries; BINGO...

Who disagrees...

    MegaMillions has 175,711,536 possible winning combinations and since only 5 combination balls and one bonus ball are drawn, there's only one winning combination. 

    With Bingo lots of numbers and positions are called out so there are more than one winning combinations at the end of the drawing.  MegaMillions is nothing like that, winning BINGO is a lot easier.

      Here is a simple system for playing bingo:

      Go to the bingo parlors on days and times of the day when there's very few players. Should increase your luck and winning chances considerably.

      Have never tested it, but has read about it in a book on gambling and mathematics.

        Lots of members post winning systems that they have never tried.  I'm waiting for someone to post a system that they actually tried and won using.  Hopefully they will document it in a way that other can repeat their success.
