no, i just mess around on paper with the pick 5 games. I rarley play for real, but when i do i don't do to bad. I stick to pick 3 games the most. Easier money with that game.

The OP of this thread (your post):

To me pick 5 games seems easy some daysand other days hard. When i play i can usually get 3 out of 5 or 4 outof 5, but the 5 out of 5 is a stinker to get. I was just wondering whenanyone plays pick 5 games do you find it hard or easy to nail any ofthe numbers of your favorite game?

Those are two extremely different statements.

Most people here that play Pick 5 will take anyone saying they usually hit 3 or 4 out of 5 with a grain of salt anyway, but there is a universe of difference between playing it on paper (and after the fact?) and live play.

When you bet your mind, you lose your mind.

Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

Lep

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.

    Wow, you must be making a living on those kind of hits!  A 4 out of 5 once a week would be all I would need to survive till I hit the 5 out of 5. 

    But I can't seem to put together much more than 2 or 3 of  out of 5 and even then its not too often.

    I haven't played at all this week but had a hunch on these for NY Take 5....

    2 15 20 34 38

    What?  What in the world does 4/5 pay in New York?  Here it's usually around $100.   You'd have to win everyday to be "making a living."   5/6 in Lotto pays $5,000 or better, but I've never gotten 5 numbers in Lotto.  I've gotten 4/5 a few times in Fantasy 5.  In fact, I signed on today to post that I got 4/5 last night.  I don't know how anyone can say winning a pick-5 is "easy" since the odds (at least for FL) are over 1 in 376K.   

    I agree with Coin Toss about the difference between winning on paper and winning in real life.  In January I cudda, wudda, shudda won $58K but didn't bet a combination I often played and got 4/5 instead.  I screamed when I saw the results.  Last night I got 4/5 and was just 1 number off and cudda, wudda, shudda won about $75,000 had I only played a couple of more combinations.  I'm often very close, but "if only I had just" doesn't count in the real world.

      I'm not sure what the point of your last post is Coin Toss.  I usually hit the 4 of 5 one or two times a month.  With all the money I spend (along with hours of analysis...time is money too) to get those wins, I figure I pretty much break even.  Thats OK. One 5 of 5 could change all that.

      I'm fortunate that a 4 of 5 usually pays between $275-$800 in NY.  However, I maintain that the NY Pick 5 is ridiculously hard and confounding.  You need to be on your game and/or lucky to even get 3 of 5.

      There comes a time where every wild claim must be backed up with proof.  I keep a file of my wins for verification upon request.

      While I make the claim that I get 4 of 5 one or twice a month, I also claim that there are several days were I wipeout and can't get two numbers right in a single game.  But that's NY.

        Yeah, last time you hit Downanddirty it was for a nice piece of change over $700.00 and that's because noone hit the Jackpot. I notice that for other states the Jackpot for four numbers is set. Some for only $100.00!!!! What a joke!! Congrats as always!!!

        Play to win!

          I have just started playing the cash 5 NC religiously in the last week, i usually spend about $10-$20 per draw every day, the best i have mustered up is 3/5.  I use a combination of QP, set #'s, and some very interesting "fortune cookie #'s".  I have no aquired play slips totaling $100 in plays utilizing the QP's that have not hit, my standard #'s and fortue cookie #'s, so that when i don't hit a few days in a row and the jackpot grows to over 400k (in nc) it is time to pull the trigger (That's tonight by the way).

          so for tonight i pulled the trigger on $100 worth of tickets. i did a spread sheet analization of the numbers and frequency in which my tickets as a whole hit each number. thought some of you may find it interesting:

          1.  18   6. 18     11. 13   16. 11      21. 12        26. 10     31. 11      36. 9

          2.  14   7. 14      12. 13   17. 12     22. 10        27. 14     32. 13      37. 18

          313    8. 15      13. 11    18. 11     23. 9        28. 14    33. 13       38. 11

          414    9. 15      14. 10    19. 11      24. 10     29. 11    34. 10       39. 15

          5.  15    10. 15     15. 16    20. 15      25. 14     30. 16   35. 7

          numbers highlighted in red are "overdue"
          numbers highlighted in green are "hot"

          numbers in blue are "cold"

          very interesting how even the numbers were after all the sources i got these numbers from.

           

          Any thoughts?

            RESULTS:  3/5 MATCHED TWO TIMES $5.00 WINNER PER = $10

                             2/5 MATCHED 9 TIMES FOR $1.00 EACH           = $ 9

            TOTAL WIN $19 TOTAL INVESTED $99.00

            TOTAL LOSS: $80.00 same cost as a couple of rounds of golf and almost as much fun!!!!!
