I have started reading Gail Howards book, Lottery Master Guide.  Any thoughts or comments on her systems would be appreciated.

    The books are the software and the software is what's in the books.  If those methods ever worked to predict the lottery they don't work any longer.  That isn't to say you can't get lucky and that her methods aren't as good as any other, but there is nothing that comes out of her books and software where you'd have a valid reason to put money on it.  The only thing that has to work is the wheels if you understand their proper use.  The wheels you'll find here on LotteryPost are just as good.

      thanks for the input. i have found some of the information in her book to give me some basics on lottery systems but her systems have failed to work for me so far.

        LMG is probably the best lottery book I have read.  Why?  Because it is the only book that I know of that discusses various number selection strategies/methods and their proper application.  A wheel is only as good as the numbers you put into it.  This book tells you how to select those various numbers for the wheel you choose-- be it one of hers, Bluskov's, or those here on LP.

          I agree with BobP.  I have the book (never bought any software of hers) and I actually found that a lot of what she recommends (like never playing a line with the same last digit numbers like 12, 22, 32) is hokcum.  SHe calims those seldom hit, but really it isn't unusal for it to happen. I've actually done better just randomly configuring numbers and not worrying about al her "rules".

            Thanks for the input.  I think a lot of what she has in her book is just filler, to make the book thicker so people will buy it.  I use some of her systems, and some of my own.

              No, a lot of what is in her book is filler for her EGO, which appears to be the size of Texas - or Colorado.

              Her books show/claim a lot of winners, maybe rightfully so, but most of those winners were from a long LONG time ago - 15+ years or more.

              By the same token, one system is as good as any other, especially when quick-picks win 70% of the time.

                Last Digit Numbers happen quite a bit in Megamillions.
                Just take a look at the current draw on 1/23/2007.

                03 and 53 came in.
                05 and 15 came in and 35 was MB.
                26 was the other number.

                If some of her (Gail H) analysis methods were based
                on an AS DRAWN analysis instead of a SORTED analyis,
                I believe she would have a lot more success in the
                current lottery world, although I do not believe you
                can argue much with her past successes.

                  I have no problems with her or anyone else's theories - because sooner or later they all come around, for awhile.  I DO find it odd that she has not updated her book to include any major winners she has had a hand in helping (with her book or programs). She has folks all over the place from the 80's and early 90's, few since then.  If you want to sell books, you stay current, her books have not..... hmmmmm.  The flip-side of that is her books appear to be the only game in town, so far.

                  Her theories are no different than any theory you or I have, and anyone that has followed my rants here will tell you, I certainly cannot claim to be able to pick all of the numbers with any amount of certainty, but the theories I have sure do point me in the right direction.  You either hit it, or you don't; close doesn't count, but you first have to do things that will preclude you from making really bad selections, after that, your GUESS is as good as mine.

                      There are a lot of interesting correlations.

                      Trying to figure out which ones are valid
                      can take a while.  You may be right!

                        I'm not sure which successes you refer to...far as I know, she has never herself won a jackpot (other than the jackpot that came with selling her books and software). SHe has had a couple of users hit jackpots using her wheels. But considering ALL the number of bets over MANY years that her users have made, this is not unusual.  It would simply be expected. I think we tend to look at systems, etc and only see when someone wins.....not all the losses that happen. Place a million or so bets over many years and you will find among them some jackpot winners.

                          I look at Gail Howard's books and software as the primer materials for anyone just starting out with the pick 5 and 6. Great for learning about wheeling and how to pick and choose numbers. Many helpful charts. But they are just a stepping stone. "Lottery for Dummies" is what I call her stuff but,by all means, worth a look and a read.

                            I agree with lottolaughs. I would say that if you are new to lottery playing concepts then it is a must read. I've used her software since it first came out in the late 80's and you can even adapt it for pick 3. Its very easy to use and works very well. There is a wealth of statistical information at your finger tips, but you must learn to interpret it all.The wheels are a little dated for P5 and P6 and there are better ones here.
                            I went to one of her seminars at least 17 years ago when she was in New York City and she was not a spring chicken then. The pictures in her book are when she was quite a bit younger, I'd say. Anyway, I don't expect any revolutionary new systems or software in the future so use it as a stepping stone.
