LP "How Comes":

1. How come of all the number games forums the Pick 5 gets the least postings? In the grand scheme of every game beyond Pick 4 that's the one you're more likely to hit than a Pick 6 or a Pick 5 and Pick 1.
A person may hit a Pick 5 and never hit a Pick 6.....but yet...

What?

2. How come there's hardly any mention of numerology? There's plenty of posts about dream numbers, most of Mystical is people requesting dream interpretations., heck 99% of Mustical is people requestiong dream numbers.....Even if it was just an exercise in teaching people to convert their initials to a Pick 3, something should be here.

3. How come no matter what, lump-sum vs annuity and number selection vs QP threads always get the most attention? For all the passionate arguments seen here about people's cherished methods of picking their numbers, we haven't seen a jackpot winner (Except maybe Winner1313).
(Watch, this one will get the most replies in this thread.)

4. How come Mystical gets so much more attention than Mathematical? Or is it just the dream number requests make it seem like that?

5. How come when someone posts a new system or method of picking numbers, it very often produces a box hit or even a straight, or at least three numbers in Pick 5 or 6 - and then seems to fizzle put right away? Ever notice that?

6. How come (this is just a suggestion) there's no forum category  called "Blind Luck" or "The Luck Factor". Or at least a pinned thread in Lottery Discussions called "Blind Luck" or "The Luck Factor".. We've all heard such stories, some members have personal ones. Poker players have "bad beat" stories, why not "Blind luck / luck factor" stories here?

7. How come justxploring or someone hasn't posted a How Come thread?

    CT: 

    Once again you have come up with a great thread.  In Florida the Fantasy5 (pick 5) game has great odds.  In addition, the game has daily pots from $200,000.00 to $300,000.00.  The bad news is that every since the introduction of EZ Match a new iteration in the game, has essentially produced greater interest, which is what the palace of pure thought in Tallahassee (Lottery HQ) wanted. However,  because of the renewed interest the game has produced multiple winners more than 60% of the time.  This is probably a conservative estimate.

    I will give you an example - - before EZ Match an average Fantasy 5 game would produce about $210,000 to a single winner, which happened frequently.  After EZ Match the game produces 2 to 3 hundred thousand dollars but most of the time we have multiple winners.  I believe this has probably driven away many of the system players.  Most of the winners, about 50 to 60% are quick pickers. 

    Better said, it used to be that on any given day it was not uncommon to find a single winner of say $225,000.00.  Now it is common to find a pot of $280,000.00 but has to be split anywhere from 3 to 8 or even 12 times.  You can do the math.

    Do not get me wrong, I would not turn down 20 to 30 thousand dollars but somehow the excitement of the game has diminshed.  Maybe, it is psychologicial but the magic is not there for me as much as it used to be.

        I hear you! Illinois Little Lotto was a lo better before it changed! Both the matrix and the payout structure changed.

          All great questions to give our minds a workout,Coin Toss!  

          I, too, have often wondered why pick 5 doesn't generate as much interest. I guess it all comes down to those extra 3 zeroes as in 50,000 vs. 50,000,000.  When it comes to jackpots, size does matter. 

          Interesting comparison between mystical and mathematical with mystical getting more attention. We're all a bunch of dreamers on here, aren't we?  LOL  According to my own family I'm "wasting my time" but who's going to be laughing in the end? When you bring in the mathematical side to things, the "reality" side,with the probabilities,the statistics the odds,etc.,well,who really wants to think about that? Take away the dreamers and there might not be an LP.  Wink

          New systems or methods that fizzle out probably haven't been tested long enough to see how they produce overall,that's what I've been finding out myself!

          Great idea for the new "Luck" forums! Just make sure there's not one entitled "Bad Luck" because that one would clog up the system!

          Fun thread Coin Toss. Keep 'em coming!!

            EASY:

             

            1) For me, I have more fun playing PB, and my realistic aim there is to get 5 WB, and if I get a JP, great. I know, I know, the odds are not as good for a PB Pick 5 as opposed to a 'straight' Pick 5, but it pays more. To some of us, the odds are the same regardless of if they are 1 in 5 million vs. 1 in 20 million.

             

            2) Because everyone has a different definition of 'numerology'.

             

            3) Because folks like to argue about stuff they can't argue about, and not the details of their own 'systems', and I am no exception.

                A QP is a QP, no matter how you slice it.   

             

            4) Because Math won't get you all the winning numbers. It may get you 3 of them, possibly 4, but not all 6.

             

            5) Because MOST of these games run in trends, and then the trend disappears.  Problem is, few see the trends until they have run their

                course, and then it's too late to play them, because they are done.

             

            6 ) How do you discuss 'luck' ?  (see 5) above)

             

            7) 'Cuz'.

              how come is like the letter Y.... why because it cant be straightened out.

              no really there are inestimable ways of picking numbers to play. one persons theory might carry some weight with some people, while other people view peoples prediction methods as hog wash or a waste of time. moreover many pick 5/6 games are won with quick picks that is not to say people don't win using their own numbers. it's just the average person doesn't take the time to figure out what numbers to play the simply ask for a Q pick which is the easiest way to buy your numbers.

              here on lottery post many people are die hard lottery players. those people whom have went out of their way to explain their methods were quickly beat down by the so called experienced players who for all it's worth couldn't hit a number if is was given to them either because they didn't think the person had an inkling of what they were talking about or the person was to proud to play said persons picks.

              geos*5666! has been rocking the pick 5 prediction board since the day he started posting. using numbers he selects off of 1 dollar bills. Who would have thought that, that's all it takes to come up with a simple solution to a game of chance.

              People who do play many games have figure out that wheeling numbers is about the best method to use for pick 5/6 games. how many numbers to wheel and what numbers to wheel have been posted on those pick 5 boards many times. Which boils down to the size of your cash flow. how much one can afford to play many wheeling methods that might produce a 3-4-5 if of require spending substantial amounts of money on a daily basis that kind of money can cause a hardship if you got trapped into thinking you might win using a wheel.

              playing the lottery is a game of chance there is a chance you might win but it's a bigger bet you will lose hence the lottery is counting on that.

                1. Didn't quite understand that one

                2. Good question, i think that at the end of the day...there is something a little more then what the probabilities are. There is something more that helps us decide which #'s are likely 2 play. But, math to also has it's place, we couldn't do without. I guess ppl are more experimental with it becuz after trying the math side of things, ppl look for other alternatives, no matter how different it may be.

                3. It all comes down to a matter of choice, personally, I don't give a damn if it's annuity or lump sum if I havn't won a sizeable jackpot to even consider it.

                4. I think the dream #'s request make it seem that way, 

                5. reading some of the other answers here, i pretty much agree with them

                6. just becuz lol

                  It doesn't always pay more - there's been a couple of times this year that Illinois Little Lotto, for example, was over $1,000,000.  5 for 5 in PB and no PB is a set $200,000.

                  Granted the Little Lotto jackpot may have multiple winners, but still PB is an additional 3,000,000 to one odd against the player.  

                  I realize all of this is still "getting hiy by lightning", and of course with the PB you just might catch the PB number, too.

                      If I lived in Illinois.

                       

                      In my state, a Pick 5 seldom gets over $90,000, and besides, there's that ONE chance of the Jackpot...... 

                       

                      I keep saying - the game is largely luck - there isn't much difference to me between 1 in 146 million and 1 in 3 million. (unless you are a sperm...... LOL)
