I track the results of the games I play, but it's because I record those results in a program that compare them with the numbers I've played.  I have files of the games past results and files of the numbers that I played for each of those drawings so it just natural for me to look at what I've done in the past and try to do better in the future.

I guess that makes me a serious player even though I only buy a few tickets.  Trying to pick a lottery winner is an enjoyable hobby for me.

      Yes, I am a serious tracker.  I don't really have a method though.

          I am a VERYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY SERIOUSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS number trackerrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr...and I do mean serious..I keep up with just about all of the draws on a daily basis..mostly the states that are multidraw states..mid/eve not to mention I experiment with new ideas as I get them..if one pops in the Noggin..then I will test it to see how it does..and I do that alot during the week..

           

          WHAT AM I ALWAYS LOOKING FOR?...SAME AS YOU..the absolute smallest amount of numbers to play in the shortest amount of time for them to show and to be able to repeat that same process over and over and over and over and over..hahahaha

           

          DO I THINK IT IS POSSIBLE?..YES AND NO..after studying these numbers as long as I have been doing so and the knowledge that I have already learned tells me there is something there...and maybe..just maybe that is an accurate STATEMENT..now the NO SIDE is, how can you..me or anyone ever solve anything with what we are trying to solve is being TAMPERED WITH..ie..predraws..the only way to be sure would be to play a state that doesnt pretest anything...I would just like to see what I could do in a state that doesnt pretest their draws..

           

          NOW..for all of you people that play the Lottery..if for some reason or another you think in your infinite wisdom that those predraws are not effecting what you play..just remember..I have a gold mine in my backyard and you can have as much as you want..hahaha

            I think Texas post their predraw results on their website somewhere.

            It has been a few years since I looked.

            Still a continuous game adding the pretest to tracking.

              yeah..I have seen them..but you see what the BIG DEAL IS..if you try and run them together it becomes a 5:1 ratio...now there are 5 draws but you only get paid for one..just like powerball..4 draws before..one after..so that becomes a 6:1 ratio..they have 6 draws and you only get paid for one..the other 5 will mess up what you are looking for

                Considering the odds of hitting any lotto game, I don't think there is such a thing as a "serious" lottery player, just some players willing or able to throw a lot more money at the games than others.

                Gamblers have went bankrupt trying to beat casino crap, card, and roulette games where the odds are nothing even close to the astronomical odds on lotto.

                "High rollers, at the end of the year, are high losers"

                "Every one bets the "Dame amount" -  however much it takes to give them a thrill"

                - Las Vegas casino tenets 

                The professional golfer Lee Trevino defined a serious bet as the time when he bet $50 on a round of golf and only had 5 bucks in his pocket.

                I would define a serious lottery player as someone that played a large combination wheel in a pick-5 or lotto game and not somebody that bet the same amount of money on QPs. Granted, both are just large bets but a serious player would have a methodology for choosing which numbers to play giving them a better chance of breaking even or winning a couple of bucks if they don't hit the jackpot.

                I believe you would have to be a serious tracker to become a serious player.

                  Good point,justx. Maybe I didn't word it right. Just because you play QP's doesn't mean you're not serious. I suppose it should read,"Do you seriously track numbers or are just a QP player?" Something to that effect.

                  Isn't the statistics like 70% win ratio for quick pick winners ? I play qp's rarely, but u never know when one will hit it big for you.

                    I definitely would not assume that "trackers only" are serious.  I was just as serious with quick picks as I am now with my other methods.  As I've mentioned in another thread, so serious that I developed my own "quick pick method/strategy".

                    Can't tell you how many times I had stores hit (with big winners)  that I had been targeting for hot/lucky quick pick buys.

                      Serious players also play QP's, because they know that there are far more QP winners regardless of how many play them. Facts are facts, which is why you never hear of a system winner ever, only QP winners.

                            Number trackers have an advantage of winning secondary prizes when they wheel the numbers because when 3 or 4 of their numbers are drawn, they will have more winning tickets. But when it comes to buying an equal number of QPs, there is no advantage of winning the jackpot either way.

                            The 70% statistic probably reflects that more people buy QPs when the jackpot is high.
