Wheel:  Pick 5 Key 5 if 5 of 17

Tickets:  1820

Description:  Minimum 5-number match, if 5 numbers drawn fall within your set of 17 numbers.

Notes:  Highly balanced (Each non-Key number appears 455 times)

Input:  1, 4, 21, 8, 22, 31, 6, 19, 33, 34, 25, 36, 37, 11, 20, 14, 18

This I posted a week or so ago. I know that 1820 is a lot of tickets and nobody in their right mind would do it, but the cost would have been:

From 11/28:

10 days x $1,820 = $18,200

Drawing 12/7:

 

Cash 501-04-19-20-31Thu, Dec 7, 2006Every DayFri, Dec 8, 2006

 

Jackpot: $208,000

Profit: $189,800

 

Oh well, win some, lose some, right?

    I've played Ohio Rolling Cash5 when its jackpot was over $300K and had all 5 winning numbers at least twice on 20 lines and was lucky to have two of them on the same line twice to win $2. (Over all odds of winning something is 1:10)

      Yeah, it's cool to see those numbers come in like that. Unfortunately, no way I'm throwing out that kind of cash to win, you know? :)

          I used the ones here on LP...that one was a 17 number 5 guarantee. Was a lucky shot in the dark. Might try another one here this morning to see if what I'm doing is working out. Even if there is an $1,820 outlay, if it is profitable enough...the way I select the numbers, who knows?

            There's a saying regarding 'mind bets' -

            You bet your mind, you lose yout mind.  

            Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

            Lep

            There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

              Yes...I can understand that, but realistically, I wouldnt have bet it like that, so it won't grind on me at all. I was just happy to get the numbers right :)

                cp..  How did you arrive with those 17 numbers?

                Just curious to see if using the 221/o/e method with the Lotto5Roulette will help narrow down the picks.

                  Oh I know what you're saying about picking the numbers right, but there's all too often an incredible thing that happens when you turn mind bets into real bets - the 'magic' goes poof!

                  Too many times, as soon as you put real money on something, whatever you had going seems not to work.

                    Yes, you are right :) Well, with the amount of numbers that I would have to play, it isn't feasible anyway.

                      I am doing something different than all of that...involving the skip rates of these numbers and applying a median to them to find out which numbers are optimal.

                              Basically: Select Data/Parameters to set up your wheel then: Select Data/Table to specifiy the numbers for your wheel then: Select Run/Zero Seed to execute the wheel.

                              Select Window/Wheel to display the results or File/Export to save the wheel to disk.
