Re: Game shows, many mooons ago Ernie Kovacs had a game show called Take A Good Luck.
For all such shows that have came and gone since then, I still think it was one of the hardest ever- one night the clue was this:
A cowboy is in a saloon in the old West, someone threw a playing card in the air, and the cowboy shot it.
That was the clue- the answer was:
Eddie Rickenbacker, flying ace. If you looked real close the playing card thrown in the air was an ace. That was one tough game show.
Justxploring- call ya and raise you on the neurosis- I think sometimes "the cosmos" is really paying attention, and what if <INSERT MYSTICAL HERE> it works like this, if LuckyLilly had played the multiplier, no chance of hitting, but if she doesn't it hit - not really too much differernt than a poker machine that hits a royal flush with one coin in that wouldn't have hit with five in.
(Ask ten slot mechanics about that one and you'll get more than ten answers.)
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.
