Back to the ranch:

I see things that hit with 80% accuracy - but they are not numbers.  For example, I can tell you which group/decade to NOT play more than one number in, I can tell you which ones are cooling down, and if you look, you can see which 'decades' have hit in the last two games, and you can largely avoid more than one number from those, too. But you still have to pick ONE number to play.

There are many other things I notice, but, as an example, those things do little more than tell me when a longshot is due - but they don't tell me which one to play. I also see things that help me ELIMINATE numbers, and I was doing pretty good with those for extended periods of time, but nothing is 100%, nothing goes forever.  But this is coming back into favor.

Nope - I can't help you pick numbers, but I do a decent job of compiling my lists of what to consider, and what to avoid.

It may not mean much, but anytime you can lessen the odds, the better you are, but I also make it no secret that I personally think lowering the odds from 1 in 146 mill to 1 in one mill is largely not much help.   One way to lower the odds immensly is to simply not pick any of the 5 numbers from the game that just hit.  Oh, one will repeat 25% of the time (lately), so you keep track, and if one has not repeated in the last 3 games, then I suppose you need to figure out which number you need to play.....

This game is to be strictly play like chess - this is a SPORT, it's no different than going to a Casino, and the odds are much worse.

Play only what you will afford to lose.

    Dream it is, no doubt, and everyone here - including YOU with 129 postings - knows it.

    It is a dream that i dont have too often maybe 2-4 times a a year. im just saying the odds are way to high for them to be ME. i told you what i thought you would need to bet in a drawing basis in order to try and use skillluck on it. im just saying yours and mine 20 dollars aint gonna do it. we dont cover enough of the chances with it.

    Im more of a 3 digit man just because now theres a better chance that $20 is gonna do!

      To each his own, some players would rather spend $20 for 20 chances to win $10,000 with odd of 1:584,442 with PB (4/55+1/42) with a shot at winning much more than 20 chances to win $500 with odds of 1:1000 with pick3.

        Guesser,

        For Tuesday, 4/1 Megamillions draw, my best three numbers are 6 - 24 - 28.  Based on my analysis, these three numbers can be part of the winning ball set or the megaball set as I do not differentiate between the two.

        Just curious, based on your analysis, would you eliminate these numbers or keep them?

        If you kept all three, which one number would be your favorite white ball and which one number would you select as a megaball?

        Thanks,

        LottoL

          LottoL,

          I've reduced my number pool to 39 numbers for the next drawing and 6 & 24 are not in it.  During the last 43 drawings no less than three of those 39 numbers have been in the winning combinations. 32 times the winning combinations had 4 or 5 of the numbers in this pool. 

          For the MM April Fool's drawing, I plan to pick 20 combinations using this pool and I'll be cashing in a 3+0 ($7) that I won playing 20 lines from a pool of 40 numbers picked the same way for Friday's drawing. 

          All 5 winning numbers were in that  pool, but the best I did was a 2+0 and a 3+0.

              It's usually the person that buys just one or two tickets that wins the big money.  I knew someone that bought only one scratch ticket in N. C. and won $100,000.  She went by a car dealership and picked out a car on her way to cash it in.....yippee for her!See Ya!

                It sounds like you believe that the players that buy more than two tickets have a disadvantage.  You may be right because I usually buy 2-4 tickets with 10-20 combinations (5 per ticket) and the closest I ever came to winning a jackpot was a few years ago when I matched 5 of 6 in Ohio Super Lotto when I bought a single ticket with ten combinations.

                    Interesting numbers.  I'm probably going to make a few changes to my picks.
                    By the way, the most numbers I've ever hit out of 17 was 4 and that was only
                    one time.  So people beware of my picks.  They probably aren't that great!!

                    Just curious - Any reason why you would pick the number 10?

                     

                    Good Luck!

                      10 was in the second group along with 10 other numbers.   I'll be picking 20 combinations from that pool using some other parameters so it's possible 10 won't make the final cut.  I will also have a pool of 30 numbers for my mega number picks, I know at least 10 of those numbers won't make the final cut.

                      I'm just picking my combinations from a 5/39+1/30 pool instead of a 5/56+1/46 pool and gambling that all the winning numbers are in both pools.

                        Like any game of chance, sometimes you do well, most of the time you don't, but you can't win if you don't play.

                          I'm starting to think that putting all your energy and thoughts toward one game is the best way to go.  Lottery games share similarities, but each had their own characteristics and covering several at the same can be confuse and blur ones' focus.

                            This is my pool of numbers:

                            01 03 04 05 07 08 10 11 12 13 14 15 17 19 22 23 25 26 27 28 30 33 35 37 38 39 40 41 42 43 44 45 47 48 50 52 53 55 56

                            Actually all the 56 numbers were in four groups (similar to tiers) but I combined the top two groups into one.

                            Tonight's winning numbers were 04 17 26 46 56 +25.  All but the number 46 was in my pool and I didn't win anything.  Since all the red numbers were in the top group, maybe next time I will just use the top group which should reduce my pool by another 10-15 numbers.

                              Congratulations on your picks!  Too bad you didn't win anything - I was hoping you would hit. 
                              If you want to reduce your numbers, just use mine...1 out of 17 - I guess that's par for the
                              course for me, especially when a repeat number occurs.

                              Way back when,
                              You told me that 50% of the time 5 numbers are drawn in the previous 15 drawings.
                              That sure came true tonight:  26-repeat, 17-out 2, 4-out 5, 56-out 7, and 46-out 14.
                              You were right on!
