I'm new here...just registered yesterday and I find this site interesting in a lot of ways. While I'm no stranger to playing the lottery, I'm quite taken back a site like this exist. I glanced around the forums, seeking practical methods to come up with winning lottery numbers and I have to admit, the information given here, is way too complicated....almost unnecessarily. 

I'm an avid fan of the Mega Million Lottery and at this point, I test methods on paper and rarely plays the game itself. After being on and off with it for several years, I'm finally  coming around to a realistic...more mature method in figuring out the "next number play". I tell you, my method, or my way, is far more simpler with less "headache" bringing out those winning numbers. My only obstacle at this point is that my method produces 2 to 4 numbers for each set and I don't know how to cover all combinations for the numbers my method "points to." However, I know this, the winning numbers are always there.

I'm no expert at tinkering with numbers or math but if you're talking about finding advantages - stuff like patterns and subtle patterns, patterns within a pattern - that's my expertise. I'm willing to, not only boast, but bet my method against any system, any wheeling-thing on this site and you'll know I'm not just spewing some randomness crap.

I could go on into further details and literally, pull the sheet from the lottery matrix and let you see the numbers naked. It's amazing. The lottery ( Mega Million ) is actually self-revealing, believe it or not.

For now though, I just want to see if anyone  have a better understanding of the game and then I'm willing to share "selective tips/advices." From what I see on this site,  I feel lightyears ahead of anything discussed here, in regards to figuring out the Mega Million numbers.

    That's really great that you have figured it all out. How many jackpots have you won LOL.

    I have been looking at mega million from every angle and worked the numbers from every direction possible and the most i came out with was 3 and a mega ball since the last matrix change. I have wheeled the numbers and got all 5 white balls but they were on 2 different tickets many times.

    If you feel so confident then go to forums at the top of the page and then scroll down to jackpot games click it and join maddogs mega million challenge for Fridays draw.

    Big John says. You don't hit the number. The number hits you!!!!

                   I'm not Big John, I'm Four4me, Big John's a friend.

      I've won 0 jackpots and that's because I rarely play. Why waste money on something that's not gauranteed ? First, learn what must be learned...down to the details. Then test it. If it comes out good, then go for it. At least that's my approach and it's reasonble.

      You say you've been looking at it from all these direction and worked the numbers from every direction possible. That's a powerful statement, there. I mean, "every direction possible" ? I'll challenge you and maddogs on the next Mega Million ( Friday ). I'll let you tell me which set you want me to ACCURATELY predict the numbers and my method will produce anywhere from 2 to 4 and I'll be right.

      Doubt me ?

        "I've won 0 jackpots and that's because I rarely play."

        Sounds like you want others to play and test your theory for you.

        Mega Millions could care less if you can hit 2 to 4 numbers.

        Touting yourself on a game you don't play is ridiculous.  

         

         

         

        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.

          First you write:

           I'm willing to, not only boast, but bet my method against any system, any wheeling-thing on this site and you'll know I'm not just spewing some randomness crap.

          Then you write:

           Why waste money on something that's not gauranteed ?

          What?

          There are no guarantees that when you turn the key, your car will start.  However, if everything works as designed, you assume that will happen most every day.  I will bet you $500 right now that my car will start.  I will even bet you $500 that my tv set will work and that my computer will boot up and these are things out of my control, but chances are they will because they've been working. As simple and unscientific as what I just wrote sounds, there are no guarantees that everyday things in our lives will happen, but I am confident that they will. Why? Because I've seen the results on a regular basis.  So if you really have confidence in your system as you claim and can point out patterns, why wouldn't you bet a few dollars on a game with jackpots in the hundreds of millions?  Even if a system worked just once out of 1,000 times you would spend $1,000 to win hundreds of millions, right?  If I won "only" $200,000 playing PB & got 5/6 numbers and spent $10,000 to get there, but I felt very confident in my system, enough to brag, it would be greater than any return in the stock market and worth every penny. But the reason I don't do that is, like you wrote, there are NO guarantees...just guesswork.

            Touts are people who hang around casinos and racetracks and tell people what teams and horses to bet on, and what "smart bets" are on the gaming tables.

            Touts rarely bet their own money on any of their selections.

            Touts often give out both sides of ball games or multiple horses in a race.

            Touts don't expect people to remember their losing picks.  

            When one of the touts picks come in, they look for the people they told to bet it, with their hand out.

            Touts are despicable.

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

              MegaMillions has a 5/56+1/46 matrix. In a 5/56 standalone lottery there are 3,819,816 total possibilities. If you are absolutely sure of two numbers, you've just narrowed the possible choices to the same number of possibilities in a 3/54 lottery matrix, or 24,804 possibilities. Bet the rent. Beg, borrow or steal the $24,804 necessary to play all of those combinations. You are guaranteed to win $250,000 on one of those tickets, even without hitting the MegaBall. Then there are all those tickets that'll pay out $150 for the 4/0 hit, and $7 for the 3/0 hit. I won't even bother calculating how many will win in each category, but it's a bunch. And I wouldn't disclose my system either, but you can rest assured I'd be playing.

                          Numba Tuff said, "My only obstacle at this point is that my method produces 2 to 4 numbers for each set and I don't know how to cover all combinations for the numbers my method "points to." However, I know this, the winning numbers are always there."

                          They didn't say how many numbers are in each set so it's possible the number of combinations could be in the millions or at best in the thousands. 

                          "I'd be very happy winning $250,000 or even splitting it once it a while. I only responded because of the comment that he/she never plays."

                          If 781,000 people buy 5 Mega Millions tickets each with a different 5 number combination, one of them is going to win $250,000. And that ticket has a 1 in 46 chance of matching the mega ball and that's why it's not necessary to sell out all 175 million combinations to have a jackpot winner.

                          You and I both know the odds of winning the jackpot or $250,000 is extremely high after buying only 5 tickets, but Tuff has no chance of winning. It doesn't cost us a dime to predict Mega Million combinations but I don't want you to read in the news where a deranged Ohio man who accurately predicted the winning Mega Millions numbers on Lottery Post was rushed to the nut house because he didn't play them.

                            I think I made myself clear. I think the "hints" I gave at my knowledge of the Mega Million numbers are tranparent and clear. Of course you have those, like yourself, that chooses to misunderstand or pretend to not understand.... and that's an effective tool to get information out of people. If you think I'm on the defense to prove what I know, you're mistaken - even if you didn't mean it that way, then it can apply to anyone else that may think otherwise.

                            I've been straightforward in my first post as a newbie. I made it clear that I'm willing to trade tips/knowledge/advices about the Mega Million games but I like to get "usefe" information in return, as well.

                            My only problems is working combinations. I don't know why and I'm pretty good at what I do. Just to show my credibility as a Mega Million player, I recently predicted on paper 3 numbers accurately with the other two numbers, off by one ( Ex. Number Played - 38... I Played 39). I didn't lose any sleep over it, either. I know TOO MUCH and sometimes I get worried because if I keep going at the rate I'm going..... I can be a consistent winner for the $250.000.00 prize (5 out of 6). That's my goal.

                            And as I've been saying, I always have the winning numbers that my method points out. I need someone to show me how to "work combinations" and cover all numbers - how do you do that?? How do you figure how many times you will play ?

                              This is merely an attack on my credibility. You could have ask me to predict a number from a set for Friday's draw and that would've been respectable but you had to attack me by saying, " Tuff has no chacne of winning."

                              Stick around, fella..... after I make a couple of accurate predictions from the sets, you will remember NumbaTuff.
