Rather than a process of inclusion I follow a process of elimination - ie remove numberm that are not expected to occur in the next draw. Eventually I'm left with a core set of numbers that I make my selection from.

    Just a friendly reminder to everyone. When you win and have to complete an IRS form, the state lottery officials ask you WHAT YOUR METHOD IS. I am leary and hope you are as well of anyone anywhere that wants to know our method, and who is good at picking numbers. You and I will never know who on this forum - or any other - for that matter are state lottery officials. They are not our friends.

      that is so true. I am a witness to that. On May 24,1994, my Mom came here & took me to Tallahassee to cash my $30,000 ticket on Fantasy 5. They asked me the same question & my reply was I'll never tell. They do not need to know, it is NOT their business & NOT REQUIRE.

        i never knew that because i have never won more than $5000 so it is good to know ahead of time because most people are so happy to collect a jackpot they will answer a random question like that without thinking...

          Iuse pen and paper since it seems you find something that works for a while then everything changes and you have to go back to the drawing board and find what will work for a while again.

          Just the way I do it.

           

           Good Luck,

          Blackie.

            i have several different ways.. one is qp's.. sometimes i play numbers from dreams..

            or let the numbers jump out at me.. i used to (when i was younger,i know it's silly) write the numbers down on a piece of paper and draw  them out...

                  I agree with Blackie.  Except, I usually use a pencil (I make a lot of mistakes...changes). Just when you think things are going to turn around, it all goes down the tubes. But I still will not stop trying.  If it wasn't a challenge we wouldn't be here talking.

                  Maybe "Today's the Day"

                    Should have been with the last post, where's that pencil?

                      Before coming to LP it was "gut hunches", quick picks, and number from astrology magazines.

                      Well, the astologoy magazines and Star scrolls are no loinger available around here, gut hunches just don't work for lotto (not for me anyway), and I'm not going to bet $64 on 128 combinations to win $40 and say, "I hit".

                      After being here a year and a half, I look at last night's pick 5, subtract them all right to left from the max number, 39, add the totals and divide by two.  ( 0 for 547 so far re: payoffs. I forget who posted that one originally, but it just hasn't worked.) So I don't play it anymore, just track it.

                      Then I'll look at maybe the last 7 or 10  drawings and try to find a trend.

                      I might even fill out a playslip.

                      Then I tell the clerk to give me a quick pick.

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

                      Lep

                      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.

                          You're right,I forgot QP's! It's the easiest "system" of all,isn't it?? LOL 

                          Good point, too bad we can't vote for several options because I'm sure we all use one thing or another at different times.

                          I Agree!

                            I just pick up a betslip and a pencil with no eraser, and fill in those little boxes.

                            That's how I do it. Yeah Baby...Do it Do it Do it...LOL

                              Quick Picking is the only way to go...I also use gut feelings as well...I just need to get in the habit of always playing my gut feeling plays...but outside of that I prefer QPs.

                              Get MONEY!!! Winning a JACKPOT lottery is all the HOPE and CHANGE I desire!!!  NOW give me MONEY!US Flag

                              The guy who won the presidency in 2008 really won the lottery...he is now millions richer, travels in first class style, and even has a staff that would be the envy of the richest Powerball winner (she has a staff of 2). Every night he goes to sleep, he probably plays the close of Dave Chappelle's Show: I'm rich beyatch!
