    I do not know how to predict numbers, just when the big jackpots will be won.  For instance, I knew this PB would be the max rollover before another rollover(and I am not winning it---LOL.  So, I have learned to wait 'til the BWB ((Big Winning Bug))  bites me .  The bug is about extinct, but is still around I see.

      I've used it a couple of times, but I real don't use it that often.

        I looked at it a couple of times too.  But until I find the true "psychic" who has 100% accuracy with  ONE set of numbers, I won't even consider using it.

        When I look at the page  I see predictions with 15, 20 sometimes 30 different sets of numbers.  Who can play that many everyday, twice a day or even for lotto twice a week?  Maybe a set wins, maybe not.  So the winnings seems to be still attributed to luck.

        No offense to the predictors.

          I use it to post the numbers I actually play, but often can't get to the computer to post them EVERY day.  I do agree with Lottocalgal that putting 50 #"s doesn't make sense.  That is why I love it when I see someone on the forums post one number, or one SET for a jackpot game, and then hit!  That is the true art - post just one number/set and hit on that! That is my goal.

              I use the prediction board if the person has posted a number that I like and I feel is due.

              I post my numbers first and then I check to see what others have.  I have missed some hits

              because there are some many numbers to look through.  If a few members post the same

              number I tend to gravitate towards that number.  I have not used it recently because the

              NY numbers are  more unpredictable then usual.  I can't seem to connect with the pattern of

              the numbers lately.

                  The question of "why do people post so many numbers?" has been answered so many times (by so many people) I could not even count.  Do you really not understand what people are doing when they post several numbers?  Do you actually think that people are saying to play all those numbers??

                   

                  P.S. If I was one of the predictors your comment was aimed at, I must say I would be a bit offended, even with the addition of "no offense to the predictors" at the bottom.

                    By the way, anyone who says that people who post a large set of numbers and also have a high hit ratio are more "lucky" than "skillfull" do not comprehend a stitch about odds and statistics. 

                    In a situation where two people have identical hit ratios, and one person picks 1 numbers a day while the other picks 50 numbers per day, both are of equal luck and/or skill.  There is absolutely no advantage of one over the other.

                    If this concept is odd or strange to you, then you also may be thrown by the question, "Which weighs more: a pound of feathers or a pound of gold?"

                      First , I don't look at the predictions because no one is predicting for China.

                      Second, I think IF I was playing numbers in the USA maybe there should be a prediction for just 1 or 2 numbers to see who really is on target.

                      I think the average player that see's all those numbers are overwhelmed by the sheer numbers some members here post. For whatever purpose all those 15-50 numbers are posted, it makes the average serious player not even look at them after a short while.

                      Play to win!

                        Neither,  They are both a pound, however the pound of gold has a higher density.

                          I'm just expressing my opinion, as you have done.

                          Not sure why you'd want me to go deleting posts just because my opinion is different than yours.  Have I offered such a convincing argument that I have changed your mind?

                            You stated, "For whatever purpose all those 15-50 numbers are posted..."

                            So, if you don't understand the reason why someone would post 15-50 numbers, perhaps you should research the reason in the forums, as it has been explained numerous times.

                            If there are so many people doing it, wouldn't you think that perhaps there is a reason, and knowing the reason may in fact make you a better lottery player with more methods and tools at your disposal?

                             --  --  --  --  --  --  --  --  --  --  --  -- 

                            When people post these polls or threads from time to time, it exposes the fact that many people do not take the time to investigate why people post things the way they do.  It also exposes that several people think there is only one way to play the game, and that other methods they don't understand are wrong.

                            That way of thinking just doesn't make sense to me.
