As you can see here Boris meant well, but it is not so easy to win, even with a very elaborated and complicated system that uses a lot of software.
What gives you the winning number? The right prediciton logic(s) does! Or a lot of luck or combination of both.
I myself never got any winning number with luck, only with the right prediction logic.
But some people sometimes win with or by luck.
There are many rights prediction logics, but to win you have to use one of them and in the right way(s).
On jackpot games, it might be more likely that people will win by luck the jackpot than by prediciton logic, I am talking about the 1st prize.
Lower prizes are more likely to be won by a good prediciton technique than by luck.
Those who want to win more often and or more money will or might play the pick 3 game.
As can be seen on this thread, there were hundreds of numbers posted before the test ended.
He might had hit a straight or more boxed numbers by either having a better prediction technique and or by playing very more numbers per draw.
Perhaps he should had tried boxed prediction, before he did straight.
This shows you that prediciton is not so easy.
And take into account that a person can beat random, but that does not mean that he or she will make a profit, as they pay only $500 per straight and $80 per boxed single.
There are 220 boxed singles so if you win boxed with 80 numbers or more, but less than with 220, you will beat random, but will not make a profit.
The same thing can be said about straight.
To beat random is not so hard, but as seen here to make a profit it is.
I don't think that Boris even beat random at all, but he sure made a very good try.
Maybe next time back he will.
He wanted to put up a web site and sell winning numbers, I myself could had done that, maybe one day(?).
It is said or written that Saliu's software needs way too many past draws to work with and that you must even add some fake-phantom draws to it to make it work, I myself dislike that very much.
Even my very best straight pick 3 prediciton of the very few that I ever made didn't need more than a few draws of stats from about 4 to 10 past draws I think most of the time I used from 1 to 10 past draws for either straight or boxed predictions.
But I do see a possible use for up to about 3500 for some filters, if you want to you those techniques that need so many draws as those.
For more possible reduction techniques you might need those very many draws of the right stats if you have the right software that will give you the right stats in the right way.
All is in how familiar you are with the draws from your state, their stats and with the right interpretation of those stats.
To get familiar with them at first, yes you need to study the stats for very many draws and very many times, but there-after a few draws more or less might do.
I remember how at first the only thing that I used was the sums chart and my knowledge of filters.
And yes, I won very often in that way.
