Lotto*Love

Great post!

Everyone, I worked in Vegas casinos and river boats for quite a while....when I was in Vegas, fellow employees were video poker addicts as soon as the game came out came out (video poker has ben called "electronic morphine).

They used to tease me for going to California to play the lottery, and my reply to them was that I'd seen them blow yesterday's tips, and paychecks, time after time chasing a $1199 Royal flush, and I'd seen of a few of them hit royals and they were still working.

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.

    To be honest, when I first started playing PB, I thought that QPs were an easy way to win, but after a while of playing, I realized that there is no easy way! I don't use any system bc I don't believe they work. I usually just play QPs and every now and then I pick my numbers.

    "I thought that QPs were an easy way to win"

     

    Think about what you wrote.  There are over 304 million people in the United States.   If it was "easy" to win any lottery jackpot at all, even one that pays $100,000, don't you think every eligible person would be buying tickets & winning?  There would be no more poverty, no foreclosures, nobody on welfare, because everyone would just spend $5 or $10 a week and buy some PB tickets.*(note)  Whoopee  - I'm an instant millionaire!  The odds are about 147 million to one which means that, no matter what method you use, there will be over 140 million combinations that might be drawn that don't match yours.  Even if there was a great system that picked the winning numbers, wouldn't every mathematics professor be using it? 

     

    *(note) Just want to add that, in that case, at least 500,000 people a week would be sharing the $15 million PB jackpot and everyone would get a check for $30.

      Obviously there are millions of losing tickets with numbers that were chosen by the player.

      Here in Florida, I've noticed that when I get QPs for the Fantasy Five, they usually contain around 2 numbers from the previous draw. That's why I choose my own numbers. It's not that those repeat numbers don't have the chance to come out, but I feel it's not likely.

      But again, there are many tix that are chosen by the player and lose.

      The people who lose using their numbers can only blame themselves. The people who use QPs need something or someone to blame. My advice is to you is to get over it. Or.....choose your own numbers, and when you lose....bang your head against the wall, cause then you can only blame yourself.....lol Bang Head

        This gave me a great idea. Since I often use LP's RNG, I can blame Todd and his RNG for my losing tickets! That way I don't really have to be responsible for my losing tickets. Todd, it's ALL YOUR fault!

         

        Just kidding.

          That's OK.  I can just blame the computer.  Smile

            I don't know; interesting subject, I think I've brought this up a couple of time but whatever. With 70-80% of purchases and 70-80% of winners are QPs personally I QP's are the better deal. Again I don't know I only buy Qps on the day of each drawing, I did SPN once and I won nothing so that didnt convince me so I stick with QP's.

            Plus, it seems that lately people have been winning PB with one dollar qps which is kind of weird. Especially the recent winner of 86 mill how crazy is that story, dude buys scratch offs and wins a free PB tik and he chooses qp and WINS, dude didnt even want the ticket yet wins 86 mill, THATS CRAZY

            QPs must be where its at.

              I used to not be sure if QP's were the way to go or not, but when I hit a 4/5 Fantasy Five recently from a free QP with a really weird combo (something like 2,5,6,7,18), I realized that it doesn't matter what numbers you pick or get picked!Guitar  It's strictly luck!  But, you can't win if you don't play!Crazy

                    Just a thought.  Use their web site and qp 1000 or more numbers, then eliminate all their qp's, and play the remaining numbers.  I posted one time that I picked over 1200 qp for p/3, and still didn't get a hit.

                      yea its a good topic, i read people's opinions with enthusiasm.

                       

                      personally i play the same numbers ea week, as its kind of easy to check that way. but i will often buy extra quick picks on top.· some time ill buy extra games, but pick my own numbers. depending on the game. I know i have more chance if i buy a ticket than if i dont. even if the odds are so slender they're still better if i actuallybuy  one.· either QP or my own picks. i dont care.

                       

                      i mean i have that dream, of maybe winning 1 day, what do people who refuse to play lotto  have as a dream? rockerfellers flying overhead in airships dropping silver dollars? guess its that calvinist work ethic, good luck to em i spose.
