    Why would there  be any problem?  The government doesn't care how you pick your numbers.  The odds are still in their favor, no matter how you pick your numbers.

      I think someone posted on here (along time ago) that they had a winning system and believed that the when the government found out how successful it was for them, they changed the matrix or something. But that was just one persons post.

      IMO, I don't believe that there really has been any system that strikes terror in to any agency as of yet.

        LOL !  Yeah, as I know that you know, we get that all the time here.  If there were any such system that actually produced a constant profit , someone would have discovered/stumbled upon it long before now.

        I think alot of people that think they have discovered something confuse the difference between "winning" and making a profit.  You can win pick 3 everyday by spending $500 and covering all the straights.  But your profit will be  less than zero at the local store, and zero itself if you did it online.

        I think we've all found methods that work "for awhile" and then go cold.  That is something the lottery officials know about and they could care less.  It's like playing the slots....you hit a hot streak for awhile and think you "got it" figured.  But given enough time, the house takes back all you money that was won. My sister thinks I'm nuts, but I will go to our casino maybe twice a year with only say 30 bucks.  I play video poker.  If at any time I'm ahead, I'll cash out and go home.  Better to leave with more than I came in with than to sit there and watch it all go away.  Smile

            There was an article last year about a state getting on a company selling numbers.  The company was selling lottery numbers that they claimed improved players chances of winning and the state banned them from advertising in their state unless they could prove their claims.

              The only problem you would have with the state lottery is if your sysmtem would happen to be hacking the computerized number system to get numbers.

                The assumption is the states began offering lottery games last month or last year. There are several states that have been booking pick-3 games for over 30 years. The math is really simple; they pay out 50 cents on the dollar. In most state lottery financial reports they give the exact win/loss percentage and some years it will be slightly over 50% and some years under.

                Maybe somebody is making a small profit using a system, but if it doesn't show up on their bottom line, why would the state lottery care?

                "IMO, I don't believe that there really has been any system that strikes terror in to any agency as of yet."

                I Agree!

                  Oh yeah. That's the whole point of  why I don't do that any more.  If I walk in and hit a losing streak I can't lose more than I have (approx 30 bucks) -- and if I win enough so that I have more than the 30 bucks I came in with, I feel real good knowing that I beat the house, so to speak.  And even if I'm 10 bucks ahead, I leave with more than I started with, and had some fun in the interim.

                  The casino probably doesn't appreciate it if people play that way, but they make SKADS of money off the dreamers.  And I got some "found money" to blow on anything frivilous I like. Wink

                    The ball's in the machine that come up with the numbers are they picked by the state lottery or ramdom?

                      Good question, I also would like to know for sure.

                      But as there are pre-tests, they should always hold the very same number of pre-tests before the "Real" draw.

                      I wish that there was no way for them to know which numbers were bought before the draw and also before they posted the winning number on their web sites, after the winning number was posted then yes.

                        The Texas Lottery has an explanation of how they choose which ball set and the results of pre-tests on their website. They set a standard that decides if the pre-tests are random and use that ball set if it passes or replaces it with another ball set if it doesn't.
