Second question

How do you choose your numbers if a machine doesn't do it for you?

 

P.S. different forum because they are related situations but different subjects.

I want you guys to think about it.

    I use a spreadsheet for each individual game that I play.  I am actually still tweaking and working on these spreadsheets, but basically the balls are ranked based on many factors such as: games skipped, hit% last 100, hit% last 50, skip ratio, and others.....then I go back over months and months of draws and plot on my ranking chart the winning numbers hit.  After lots of backtesting I seem to get a spreadsheet that consistantly picks good numbers.  For instance, I chose 11 numbers for the Texas Cash 5 draw last night and had 4 of the 5 drawn in my 11.  I wheeled the 11 numbers into 10 tickets and I only had one that matched 3 out of 5, but had 7 others that matched 2 out of 5.  Anyway, that's my method......my wife calls me the "Mad Scientist" because I have spent so much time working on these spreadsheets, but they are starting to pay dividends.

      I try to keep it simple..I have a couple of ticket's I use dates of birth and year of birth..Mix them up but always the same..I always get at least one QP and if I have hit something and have extra money I buy more QP's..I find I do better on QP's but who cares as long as I cash a ticket..

        Another thought on the subject....Lottery Post has a good Quick Pick section where you can generate some quick picks and then weed out the ones that don't look good to you personally.  I think that's a better way of getting quick picks than letting a lottery machine pick them because then you're just stuck with 'em even if they are 17-18-19-20-21-55..........................

          Usually I play a QP, but if I choose the numbers sometimes look at yesterdays' numbers for all the games, and total individually the mid day pick 3 and 4 and evening pick 3 and 4 and then take the highest number from the lotto draw (Pick 5) and subtract the secind highest number from it.

          Ex: if the previous day was

          Mid Day 

          Pcik 3  272 =  11

          Pick 4  3651 = 15

          Evening

          Pick 3  873 = 18

          Pick 4 2989 = 28

          Pick 5  6  15 21  22  39 /  39 -22 = 17  

          Thus 11 15 17 18 28  

          That's one way.

          I also have two "fall back" sets of numbers if I don't want to track -

          2 4 15 29 31 (The "Cribbage" ticket- significant numbers in the game of cribbage) 

          and

          6 12 15 29 36

          6 12 and 15 seem to hit together, the 29 and 36 are just "wags"

          Also I'm a freak for the lotto articles that appear in the tabloids. I remember one that suggested doing this for the Pick 6- fill out a playslip, see if the pattern the numbers produce look "attractive" to you - then turn the playslip upside down and do the same pattern, but from thje bottom to the top!

          On Sundays and Mondays during the football season I play numbers that repeatedly showed up in the scores.

          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.

              Occassionally 2 of 5, breaks even, pays $1, once in a while 3 of 5, pays $10.

              (Pick 5 game, 5/39).

              I have had tickets where I hit 3 of 5 and missed the other two by one digit, but it's lotto, a miss is a miss.

              I'm strictly a $1 or $2 at a time player, I look at the lotto as a chance for $1 to turn into a dream. 

              Other ways of looking at it can get people into trouble.
