"How do  you expect to win if you put yourself on the negative side"

The tickets and balls don't know what you're thinking of. If you think you won't be offered a job you interview for, that belief may affect your chance of being hired. If you think you'll be rejected if you ask somebody to go out with you, that belief may affect the chance that the person will agree to go out with you. The difference is that those things aren't random events.

    I know someone at a convenience store I frequent that won a $77,000 jackpot buying one ticket.  That's all it takes to win, one ticket.  And it was a quickpick.  She had never played the game, and maybe that was one reason she wasn't being so self-negative.

    And odds? Odds are only good for discussion purposes with another individual.  You can never escape the fact that even if the odds were a billion to one, someone is going to beat them and win the jackpot !  These jackpots are all guaranteed to have winners.  And so the heck with the odds.  The winner can be you as well as anyone else.

    As to luck.  Everyone "blames" luck.  But no one can define luck.  If there is "bad luck" then there is "good luck".  And there is no reason any of us can't have the latter just as easily as the former. 

    In the meantime, it's good entertainment, as long as you don't go crazy with it.

      I'm done playing the game untill I see some compensation! It's all luck! LUCK! LUCK! LUCK! all luck! Even if your psychic, had great intuition, sixth sense and etc., you won't win the jackpot. That's what I'm been trying to say. There's like this mental block that I can't get around or anyone else. Faith? I don't understand that either!

        I am glad to see some of you coming to your senses.

        I keep proposing we share ideas and numbers and see if we can beat the odds.

        Yet some people here are more concerned about sharing the jackpot.

        We can keeping posting 12 numbers in the challenges but I don't get any satisfaction from the end result.

            This is why I switched over to Hoosier Lotto. To win the Powerball takes an insane amount of luck. I think I can win Hoosier Lotto using my system.

            ...really you think...you are going against the computer my man which in my mind is harder to beat despite odds being much better than PB

              I read the posts of members who are sharing their ideas all the time, the problem is their ideas aren't winning much. 

              I agree the 12 numbers challenges are not the answer because it's hards to come up with more than 3 of the winning numbers in a group of 12 numbers.  So far no one has come up with a strategy that has any chance of working even on paper.  Until that happens everyone is on their own.

              Good luck to you.

                This is something I can actually agree with you on. I play a couple of computerized games and I feel my chances to win something is just as hard as when I play PB even though the odds are better.

                  My experience with Hoosier Lotto has been the exact opposite. I get 2/6 and 3/6 very frequently.

                    With odds of 1:7.3, getting a 2/6 frequently can be expected.  When I play Ohio Rolling Cash5, I usually get a 2/5 often which has odds of 1:10.

                      I understand that. I still get 3/6 a lot more than getting 3+0 on Powerball. I'm glad the Hoosier Lottery has a 2/6 prize, a free QP.

                        Anybody that plays the lottery EXPECTING to win needs psychiatric help.

                        IMO, the 'only' way to play this game is to call it a 'sport', know your limits, and play within them. (read: don't spend a lot)

                        Now, anyone that has dealt with me privately KNOWS people can notice things that can tip the odds in your favor a little bit, but I bend over backwards to tell people there just isn't much of a difference between odds of 1 in 146 million and odds of 1 in 1 million.  Heck, how many well-read folks ON HERE cannot even hit a 3x5 in the Powerball Challenge headed by our esteemed member Big Dog?   Not many.    Even I don't do so hot.   I'm really close on most of what I do, but it still comes down to number selection.

                        So, the key is not to have high expectations, play it as a game or a sport, and don't sink a lot of money into it.

                        As a footnote, most people I deal with are trying to hit a Powerball 5x5, the Jackpot itself.... pipe dream.

                          I wanted to share ideas, and I could not care less about 'sharing' any jackpot.

                          The reason I don't share my theories publicly is because they are not bullet-proof, not iron-clad, are not always 100% correct.   And when they are not correct, I don't care to deal with the trash talk that comes with it; why put myself through it ?

                          But a lot of what I have garnered over the last two+ years is VERY solid, for the most part, but 'most' isn't good for most people, some folks think they can come on here, ask, and - sure - we can tell you what ALL the winning numbers will be for the next draw ahead of time ... uh-huh 

                          As far as posting 12 numbers in the challenge - the key there is - you need to list BEFOREHAND your reasoning behind each number you have chosen.  Few can.  'cuz I felt like it' on a number isn't good enough.

                          So folks, when you make your number selections, you need to write down BEFORE the game WHY you chose certain numbers, and also, why you did NOT play certain numbers, and see if you can develop your own patterns or theories.  This will get you started in 'the game'.

                            Gee, a 73 year old man just won the Lottery. The officials can't guarantee you'll win. However, if you play long enough and live long enough, there's a possibility you may win.

                            If you're young (20s - 49), working, and good health, what's the rush: you have youth and time on your side. The older adults (50s plus), who are still working and hopefully in reasonable health, are perhaps waiting for their payday. Remember, life comes at you fast!

                            Finally, unless your physician has given you a death sentence (and I hope you get a second and a third opinion), be patient!  Yes, a retired maid hit pay dirt -- she was only 65!

                            See Ya!-- Bye, bye!  When you win, may you glow as brightly as theSun Smiley

                              Speaking of why certain numbers are picked to play, I've looked at past winning numbers and separated them into different categories that one might use to pick them to play and seldom will more than two or three winning numbers be in any one category that include less than a third of all the numbers in the game.  When ever all the winning numbers have been in the same category, that category have included a third or more of all the numbers in the game.   

                              The participants in the Maddogg challenges are trying to do that with twelve numbers but three winning numbers seems to be their limit, occasionally some one will pick four winning numbers but it doesn't happen often.  When one person start picking three or more winning numbers regularly in that challenge, they will be on to something.
