If you do not like posting your numbers early and you have the time you could always post them just before the 1 hour deadline. I think that is the allotted time here at the lottery post. On the jackpot games don't they stop selling tickets an hour in advance? If timed just right you could have the best of both worlds and not have to worry about someone playing your numbers.

If the goal is to get high prediction stats, one could play in one state and post predictions for another.   

In neo-conned Amerika, bank robs you.
Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms should be the name of a convenience store, not a govnoment agency.

    In Texas, they have a feature called 'lock down' where sales of tickets for an upcoming drawing are stopped dead. Doesn't matter what store, time of day, or any other factor.

    I'm not positive, but I think the lock down, also known in store circles as 'the hammer', goes into effect 30 minutes before the drawing, and can last 30 minutes or more after the drawing. All tickets sold after that are for the next drawing for the game in question.

      Hey, two great usernames, "Lock Down", and "The Hammer"

      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.

        The time when you buy your tickets doesnt matter..its a myth buying just before drawing (for ball draws)...i bought 3 days before and hit...i bought before drawing and nada..it doesnt matter if you have picked your numbers already....as far as computer drawings i would be skeptical of the timing though..damn machines..they can be manipulated..we just dont know..
