On the one hand, a great idea, especially considering lottery officials lurking here. On the other hand, even if all of us here (43,000 or so), not a one of us, played those games, in the grand scheme of things how many is that compared to the total that play?
There have been threads here about how big would a game matrix have to get before you didn't play and there are those who have said they'lll play no matter what.
The lotteries know that they have that on their side, to paraphrase Field of Dreams, "If you offer it they will play", that's their m.o.
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.
