There was a slot machine technician in Las Vegas who wrote a booklet about playing video Keno machines. I wish I still had it but I lost it.

Anyway, his whole point was that people play "lucky" numbers, birthdays,m etc when they should instead be playing what he called locations (not exactly a pattern, or more a geomoetry pattern than a number pattern).

This is based on 80 number Keno where the player determines what kind of prize they are going for, i.e., maybe just a 3 out of 3 asoppossed to trying to hit an eight or ten spot.

His premise was that you're going to hit a 5 spot before you ever, if ever, hit an eight spot, so he suggested playing 1, 2, 3, and 4 spots to get some "house money" to go after the five spot.

Then this was the play - on a grid of 80 numbers, there can only be a finite number of "patterns" that can appear (of limited numbers, such as going after five of them). So instead of playing numbers, play "shot groups".

An example would be 2 11 12 21 22

On a Keno grid ( 10 X 8)  this would look like this:

X

XX

XX

(no spaces though between the horizontal lines)

So does anybody think that maybe this could apply to lotto?

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

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 absolutely agree with the fact that location is a significant factor in the lottery. This is why I follow posts from Libra Dave and Blackapple. They are always right on target. Libra Dave posts specific pairs that apply to specific time zones (according to your states location)...it works!

That is so true, that you will hit a 5 spot before an 8 spot! I've hit lots of 5's and 6's at the casino, once a 7 but never an 8. I don't see why this couldn't be applied to lottery. I suppose it would all be about how you set your grid up. Now what games are we talking about for lottery? Pick 5/6? If so then the grid would be smaller,no?

I'm thinking a Pick 5 game, but do remember that in Keno you determine the prize you're going after but in lotto you have to hit 'solid' for anything substantial.
