This is regarding Pick 6 and 5 + 1 games mostly.
Consider this, there are more than 57,000 members here. Factor in inactive and what have you and let's say maybe 5 to 10 % post.
Now figure most of them play jackpot games, let's say $1 a game to compensate for thos who only play Pick 3 or 4 and for those who spend $10 per drawing. (It's been said the average ticket sale is $1).
Now times 104 drawings a year, times the number of years LP has been here.
If we were all playing together as one huge pool would you stay in it? How long would you stay in it?
Despite everything that's been tried here, all the "positive vibes" about "knowing I'm going to win the jackpot", and what have you, nada, zip, zilch.
Tell you anything?
Lotto is just a $1 lark at a big score, that's the only way you can look at it.
Someomne who hopes to win a jackpot for a dollar or two is one thing, someone who starts betting a lot of money on a lottery draewing because they "know" they are winning this time is already in trouble.
And despite all that, there are people that want the 5 + 1 game matrixes to expand.
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.
