for instance you see a member post a pick 3 number in your state and the number looks good so you go play it at the store where you live.i've done this a few times.....

    Yes, I've done that.  I found it to be interesting that the number was a number I was going to play anyway.  It just confirmed what I had in my run down.

          I did once, won $10 off of it. Problem with the board is that theres either way too many combos, or the prediction is the same for every other pick-5 game in the nation, as if they were all the same game.

            Agreed, JimmySand9, way too many combos.

            When I realized most people making predictins don't actually play their own predictions, or if they do they play $120 to win $40 (to say the 'won') it really took the zing out of it. 

            Then someone posting that they intentionally predict numbers that they 'know' aren't going to hit didn't help.  

            Also form various discussions here on the board, if anyone did have a way of having a very solid prediction for a jackpot game they're jusy not going to ppst it here and split the jackpot multiple ways.  

            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.

              Yes I do, but they are the numbers I've posted.  So far I'm not convinced that anyone else posting on the board is more likely to pick a winner than me.

              If I ever see a predictor sustaining a 500%+ prize ratio continuously over several months for the games I play then I will try their numbers.

              The most lines per game I've ever posted on the board was 25, but I did play 60 lines when MegaMillion had a $200M+ jackpot earlier this year and matched 4+0 for $150.  That was the only time I got lucky this year, the rest of the times I came up short.

              I'm not as interested in the number of lines per post as I'm in the strategies of the picks, when I see 50 lines posted for the same game or same type of games nation wide for multi drawings, I'm thinking the strategy is play often, play plenty and pray for luck.

                "If I ever see a predictor sustaining a 500%+ prize ratio continuously over several months for the games I play then I will try their numbers."

                Depends on the game because 500% of $100 is $500 so you're only getting 4 to 1 on your money. In Pick-5 games where the odds are 1 to 9, if somebody is averaging 500%, I'd play every combo they predicted. Can you imagine getting $20 back for every $4 you bet playing Rolling Cash 5?

                But in Pick-3 games where the game odds are 1000 to 1 and payoff odds are $500 to $1, only getting a 4 to 1 payoff doesn't look so good.

                  500%+ prize ratio continuously over several months for any game would be acceptable for me.  It really wouldn't matter if it was a pick3, pick4, pick5 or a jackpot game, you still would be spending $1 to make $5. 

                  It might even be easier to do it with a pick3 or pick4 game with a few box hits (pick3 odds of 1:200) every month but with a pick5 or jackpot game it would probably be necessary to come close to winning it all a couple of times every month to sustain that kind of prize ratio, so far I can't even break even.
