Okay, this is just too strange and frustrating.  Many, MANY times I've done test games without spending money and have won decent money in the Take 5 lottery. The most I've hit was two 4-number combos in a single game.

Now, just last week I hit $50 for a 3-number combo two days in a row.  So, thinking everything is under control, I play the third day.  After all, third times the charm, right?  WRONG!  I got shot right back to the 2-number combo lane as I've been on for the majority of this "trip."

This is like quantum physics.  Those of you who know the experiment where the electron gets shot at a wall with two holes in it and somehow goes through both holes simultaneously.  But when someone puts a camera next to the holes to see how this is happening, suddenly the electron only goes through one.Bang Head

    Yes, thats just like Schrodinger's cat, Once the observer gets involved, the experiment changes it's behavior.

    What you're talking about is the experiment to prove whether light is  waves, or photons. It turns out to be both.

     On a seperate experiment dealing with Quantum physics, they had two seperate particles at far distances apart. When they change the rotation of one particle, the other one very far away starts to change rotation also. Einstein called this Quantum Physics phenomenon "Spooky action at a distance".

      It's always easier to win 'mind bets' than live (real) bets- but of course along with that, if you bet your ind you lose your mind!

      Cards, dice, roulette balls, keno balls, and lottery balls know when you're making a make believe bet or actually beting real money.

      Thus the saying they all have "eyes, ears, and no heart."

      The same goes for horse racing and sports betting.  

      'Woulda, shoulda, coulda' has built more casinos - and any other type of beting parlor -  than anything else.  

      PS

      Luminus, we've had threads about 'her' the proper term is "The Lottery Fairy" 

      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.

          Oh no Luminus!

          Don't say anything like that about the Lotto Fairy or she'll never show for you!

          Just accept the fact that she's very, very fickle and does everything on a whim!

            But what if you are allergic to dust, Coin Toss?  Smiley  I guess I should assume fairy dust is hypoallergenic. 

            I don't believe physics, quantum or otherwise, has anything to do with the lottery.  It's a game based on chance and randomness.  Physics is the opposite.

              "Cards, dice, roulette balls, keno balls, and lottery balls know when you're making a make believe bet or actually beting real money."

              The trouble with "make believe bets" is the bettor is tempted to believe he won if he comes close and real bets don't work that way, close don't count.

              When I want to test my "make believe" number picking skills, I post my picks on the prediction board because it's as close to real as make believe can get, close don't count there either.

                I believe that it is pretty much a case of Murphy's Law, "If something can go wrong, it will."  Like when you make money-less predictions that always come out good, but then when you actually put money down on a prediction, it comes out bad.

                Money can't buy you happiness, but I sure could afford the misery that it brings! Wink

                  Physical laws are what controls the mixing of a set of ordered balls into a random result. You're probably willing to believe that waves washing up on a beach are the result of physics. Do you believe you could put a drop of water in the middle of the Atlantic and tell me which beach it will wash up on?
