              I only had the right PowerBall number on one line, so I cashed for $3.00 . I lost money overall though. The 12 ball was my second best selection. Maybe if I had thrown out the 1 as unlikely to repeat, I could have gone with the 12 on all my lines. Of course, hindsight is always 20/20...lol. I'd like to come up with a way to zero in on the one right PowerBall number. I could make quite a bit of money with consistent 2 to 1 wins.

              I hope the rest of you made some real money with your number selections.

                I didn't actually play the PB, but I posted on the prediction board the combinations I would have played had I made the trip to Indiana to buy tickets.  In the past I've  only made the trip when the jackpot was over $180M and $80M more than the MM jackpot since I can play MM locally.  I got a 1+1 for $4 on the prediction board but I was using 42WB and 10PB.

                  I should have just played on the prediction board. I'd still have all my money if I'd done that, but I'd be absolutely sick if I ever posted the right numbers and didn't really play them. You're a braver man than I am.

                    Friday night I posted my picks for MM and actually played them.  I matched 3+0 for $7 on the board and for real.  If I ever post the winning numbers and didn't play them I would just figure my system is working and if it worked once, it will work again.  Besides, posting the winning numbers on the prediction board would give me some bragging rights.

                      You've got a lot more faith in systems than I do. I don't think lottery prediction with any system is quite enough of a science to come up with multiple jackpot winning combinations within a reasonable amount of time. The system I'm currently working with has definitely helped me do better with the secondary prizes in Win For Life, and I have realistic hopes that it will get me a top prize win in the not-too-distant future. When that happens, I'll consider myself lucky. And if I can ever even get close again, I'll consider myself to be extremely lucky... and that's just a 6/42 game for the top prize. I haven't come up with anything that bears any degree of consistency for the PowerBall game. Every system I've used seems to break down under the astronomical odds and the dual matrices. I figure coming up with the winning jackpot combination against odds of over 146,000,000 to 1 has got to involve quite a bit of cooperation from Lady Luck, and she just doesn't smile like that very often. I wouldn't count on such an event repeating with any system for playing the giant jackpot games. As I said, you're a braver man than I am. You also must have far better prediction skills than I do. But I'm all about the really when it comes to jackpot play. You can have the bragging rights, and I'll take the cash from winning tickets. Which one do you suppose will buy more?

                        ayenowitall,

                        Any system if allowed to pick enough combinations will get close to picking the winning combination.  When Ohio had a 6/49 lottery and I allowed my system to pick 50 combinations, it would pick a 5of6 five percent of the time except when I played all 50 combinations.  The one time I actually hit a 5of6 I only played 10 lines.  I would prefer cash if I predicted the winning numbers for a lottery but if I don't play them, bragging rights is all I'll get and I only get that if I predicted them on the board.  I'm not the only LP member that really try to predict winning numbers for lotteries I can't play, I do it to test my system which is a work in progress.  I only predict numbers for lotteries in states I may have a chance to play when I travel.

                          Yeah, I keep wondering about this trend of PB numbers from 1-24 hitting so much, not a lot hit higher than #24.

                              ayenowitall,

                              Any system if allowed to pick enough combinations will get close to picking the winning combination.  When Ohio had a 6/49 lottery and I allowed my system to pick 50 combinations, it would pick a 5of6 five percent of the time except when I played all 50 combinations.  The one time I actually hit a 5of6 I only played 10 lines.  I would prefer cash if I predicted the winning numbers for a lottery but if I don't play them, bragging rights is all I'll get and I only get that if I predicted them on the board.  I'm not the only LP member that really try to predict winning numbers for lotteries I can't play, I do it to test my system which is a work in progress.  I only predict numbers for lotteries in states I may have a chance to play when I travel.
                               
                               

                              Actually, I thought we were talking about backing up a winning jackpot combination with a repeat.

                              In a 6/49 game, the odds of catching 5of6 are something like 1 in 55,000. If you had a system that would hit 5of6 five pecent of the time using fifty combinations per draw, that sounds like you drastically reduced the odds of catching a 5of6 hit to 1 in 1000. (That would be a 5of6 hit every twenty draws or ten weeks if drawn twice weekly.) Including the lower tier secondary prizes along with the 5of6 hits, that would definitely be a money maker. I'd gladly put down $50 per draw if I had such a system. If a player could consistently get that close to a jackpot win, hitting the jackpot itself would be a very realsitic expectation. Even repeating a jackpot win would not be unrealistic with system that would reduce the odds so dramatically.

                              By the way, I've only hit 5of6 once for $1000 in my lottery playing career. That was with a $5 QP on the old Lotto Kentucky.
