Because the odds are better !

They pick 20 numbers out of 80 and I have to get at least 6 of them to win $10. Woop-te-do. It is much more difficult to pick 10 of 20 out of a possible 80 than 10 of 60 numbers that WON"T hit, see what I mean?

I have been tying to win for a year and I found that I am much better at picking losing numbers. If they offer a prize for losing numbers, why not take advantage of it? as for turning a profit-if I can triple my bet consistently that would be fine, that would be great, it would sure beat losing trying to win. I want to win trying to lose.

I may have found a formula...I'm still testing it...it's kind of hairbrained, but I want to backtest a few more drawings before I lay it out there.

The way I figure is this: let's say I bet $100 on 10 numbers and none of them hit...I'd win $300. You can bet the same lousy 10 numbers as many times as you want. If I felt particularly confident in a set of numbers, I could bet $500 on them and walk away with 2 G's. Or not...you see that's why I'm looking for a method. If one lousy number hits I would be screwed.

Little risky there..  to put $100 on a string of numbers not to show... for only a $300 win...

I had rather put that $100 on a basketball game and have a better chance of doubling my money..

    Pick 10 in NY pays out $4 if you have no winning numbers.
    10/20/80...look at it this way...the odds are much better picking 10 from 60 than 10 from 20 out of 80, right? so I've been trying to "lose" for the past couple of days and yes I do get 9/10 losing numbers or 8 of 10...heh heh,
    the odds are better but it isnt easy like I expected.

    I'm trying to come up with a formula, but so far nothing.

    I've tried pi x number x 2 and that is a bust. Always one number shows up.
    This makes me mad because it should be easy!!
    the no-wins pay out 13,000 and change every day, so somebody is getting it.

    I would like to take out a little of the guesswork, but hitting one number will knock you out!
    I WANT TO LOSE!!!!

    Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

    I'm a Kenoholic and every Fall I fly to Vegas with a group of golfers. We rent a couple of vans, drive to southern Utah, play golf for 5 days and spend 2 or 3 days in Vegas before we go home. Since most of the guys are not gamblers, they spend alot time with me in the Keno Lounges. They get more play out their $25 than they would playing quarter slot machines and have more time to flirt with the tail waitresses too.

    People probably play a 10-spot because they can win $100,000 for a buck and getting back $2 for hitting an occasional 5 numbers keeps them playing a little longer too, but zero hits pays nothing. However some casinos do have a "20-spot special" for $5 where zero hits pays $1000 and the only time you lose is when 3, 4, 5, or 6 of your numbers hit. The Orleans has a $2.50 "Super 20" where only 4, 5, or 6 hits are losers, but zero pays $250.

    Though I saw a woman hit zero out of 20 playing 3 rows of 4 on the top and 2 on the bottom that she called "goal post", I've always thought of this game as an inexpensive way of gambling.

    I can understand trying to hit "zero numbers" to win $1000 or even $250 but 4 bucks????

      thats funny!!

      4 bucks!! I know I know but being that I usually win zero, that is I usually LOSE money, 4 dollars multiplied by how many bets I make could satisfy me. I'm getting fed up with it man. It's just as hard as trying to win I'm finding. I like that "goalpost" thing, maybe I'll try that next time.

      are some people just plain unlucky with games of chance?
