    The only thing that will increase is the author's bank account.

    You can't predict random.

      I've always given this title a pass because the theories are fairly well known and don't need 150 pages to explain. 

      Don't play the way the vast majority of other players do, so when you win you won't have to share the prize with all of them.

      If you think playing 7-14-21-28-35-42 is ok, you're one of them.

        After visiting LP daily for the past couple of years, I have discovered one simple truth........EVERY "system" or "strategy" that someone else is selling is pretty much useless. They almost always contain useless info that is already WELL KNOWN by ANYONE who has studied their own states game. Nobody has a "system" that says "Do this, then this, and then this" and VOILA, you have the winning number for the next draw. Save your money, you will get better info for free right here at LP. And, if you decide to upgrade your membership status, you will have even more tools available to you which will enable you to make better, more educated bets. Just my 2 cents worth.

          Everything BobP and Shawn67 said, and this - pick a game, any lottery game, and track it and you will see almost everything the lottery authors tell you refuted, sequences they tell you never to play, come up.

          A Florida drawing not too long ago was intervals of 7, for one example.

          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.

            In lotteries, anything and everything can happen once and does, that's the reason it's hard to predict what will happen next.

              We need 5757 drawings to look at 10% of a 5/39 game and that will take almost 16 years if there is a drawing every night. Combinations with 5 consecutive numbers or intervals of 5 or 7 look strange but eventually they will be drawn; even it takes longer than 1577 years.

              I don't want to do the math on Powerball and Mega Millions.

                5757 looks like a good pick four number                           Thanks

                  What I want to know is, how can there be only one winning Quick Pick when millions of people choose the Quick Pick?  How can the main computer issue only one computer with that percise sequence of numbers, when millions of people across the country are asking for Quick Pick numbers?  One person gets an amazing sequence of numbers, and then sits there and watch a machine, miles away, drop those exact numbers in the percise sequence required? Mechanics in total tune with a computer.  Strange.
