Ah, well, I meant what percentage of the total possible combinations fall into those parameters. LOL

    That's probably 85% too because the drawings are a sampling of all the possible combinations.  Like tasting a bowl of soup, you don't have to eat the whole bowl to know what it tastes like, a spoon full will do.Wink

      Now that Ohio has posted on its website that its sales of PowerBall tickets will start next month, I'll be updating my PB file and changing my system to pick PB numbers also.  I started concentrating on MM a couple of years ago when gas prices made trips to Indiana for PB tickets too expensive for my budget.  Now that both games will be available locally I will probably start playing both again.  I've kept an eye on PB results and know that PB numbers act different than MM numbers and will redesign my system accordingly.  With more available chances, hopefully my odds of during well in a big jackpot game will improve.

        How does PB act differently than MM?

        And, does this mean we'll be seeing a Developing a winning PowerBall System thread, too? Shocked

          No, I plan to keep that one to myself, Wink you'll be on your own if you want one for PB too.

              Now that PowerBall has come to Ohio, I'm tracking its results as closely as I track MegaMillions results and the two games have more in common than I thought.  The major difference between the two games is MM can be played up to 10:45 PM on draw night and PB can only be played up to 10:00 PM on draw night.

                I'm getting use to the different structures of the PB and MM games, not only do they have different cut-off times for playing but one has a multiplier and the other doesn't at least here in Ohio.  PB only has a 140 drawings under its present matrix and MM has 510.  Since PB have fewer bonus numbers, playing less lines and opting to pay extra for the multiplier makes sense.

                  For tonight's PowerBall drawing I have reduced the WB pool to:

                  04 05 06 07 08 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 29 31 32 34 35 36 37 38 39 40 41 42 44 45 46 47 49 50 51 52 53 54 55 56 57 58 59

                  and the PB pool to:

                  01 02 04 07 08 09 10 11 13 15 18 20 21 23 24 27 30 34 37 38

                  Now all I have to do is pick a few lines before the cut-off time to play.

                    You had 4 of the 5 winning numbers and the powerball too in that group. If you wheeled them you may have won 10k. Of course it would have cost a crap load of money to play. LOL.

                    I won $8 on PB on a QP. Didn't have time to do a workout this week. I'm only doing workouts on Tx Lotto and Tx 2 Step this week, and play QP on MM and PB.

                    Good luck to you this week.

                      Good luck to you this week.

                      Yep LOL, 49 WB and 20 PB cover 38,137,680 combinations and there's no way I would play a wheel covering that many combinations even to match 3 but picking 10-20 lines from them if they have all the winning numbers gives me better odds of picking a winner than picking from 175,711,536 combinations. 

                      I played the 10 lines I posted on the prediction board and the best I did was 2+0.  Even though 20 was among the top 6 bonus numbers based on its repeat pattern, I didn't include it in my picks which I usually do when I don't play all the numbers.  Reducing the WB pool to 49 wasn't good enough so I will try to find a pattern for numbers stretching over 57 drawings that have fewer numbers that cover at least 4 of the winning numbers in past drawings 70% of the time and I will make sure the top 6 or seven bonus numbers are in my picks for Wednesday drawing.

                      The good news is nobody won and I get at least one more try before the PB jackpot resets to $20M.

                        I've been playing MegaMillions since before the last 333 drawings of its last matrix change back 676 drawings when its name was BigGame.  During that time I have been developing a system to win it but the closes I came was when I reduced the core number pool to 25 and the bonus number pool to 10 and had all the winning numbers in those two groups twice. 

                        Playing 10 lines allows me to use the numbers in the core numbers pool twice and the ones in the bonus number pool once.  The two times that all the winning numbers were in those groups the best I did was a match 3+1 for $150 and a match 3+0 and 2+1 for $17.  It rare when I have all the winning numbers in those size groups so most times I'm lucky to have 3 core numbers and the bonus number.  Matching 1+1 or 0+1 is more common.

                        I've come up with all kinds of rules for how to formulate a winning combination and  eliminate the losing ones using data from previous drawings that seem to have worked when I compare a list of the combinations I rejected with the ones that I accepted and played.

                        I recently read BobP e-book "Win Your Lottery" that convinced me that I'm on the right track with my strategy, but it needs more development and little patiences.  It just might win big one of these days if I'm lucky.

                        I've share some of the things that I've tried that works in some of my earlier posts and as I discover new ones I will consider posting them too.

                        Good luck fellow LP members, I hope one of us win a jackpot soon.

                        have you won on pick 3  or pick 4 lottery  it all sound good   it seem that you want to sell a dream the same thing that the lottery is doing you know and check this if you get a quickpick megamillion or powerball ticket  the game is fixed they will let you get 3 numbers  and look at the pay out $7.00

                        it don,t make sense to chase a dream it all a game. learn to hit 3 digits or 4 digths first before you talk

                        about a megamillions ect. you don,t have nothing .

                          Part of the fun in playing is finding and working on different strategies. Playing P3 and P4 is a different animal from the jackpot games. I like playing the daily games at times, but being on a budget those games just don't pay enough to warrant the extra cost. RJ has some good ideas and thoughts about strategy for MM. Take the time to read all the posts in this thread.

                            about a megamillions ect. you don,t have nothing .

                            Where did you get the idea that I wanted to sell a dream?  Sorry if you were looking to buy one, you'll have to look somewhere else or do what I did and come up with your own.  I play the types of lottery games I enjoy and find entertaining and pick3 and pick4 aren't one of them.  Trying to win a lottery jackpot is something I enjoy and it doesn't have to make sense any more than smoking a cigarette, drinking a cold beer or watching TV.  Half the things most people do don't make sense to someone.

                            If chasing a $40 box hit playing pick3 make you happy then I say do "your" thing and good luck to you but that's not "my" thing, chasing multimillions lottery jackpots is my thing.

                              For tonight's PowerBall drawing I have reduced the WB pool to:

                              04 05 06 07 08 09 10 12 13 14 15 16 17 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 28 29 31 32 34 36 37 38 39 40 41 44 45 47 49 50 51 52 53 54 55 57 58 59

                              and the PB pool to:

                              04 05 08 09 10 11 12 15 20 21 23 27 30 31 33 37

                              Now I will use my RNG to pick at least 16 lines that hopefully will have all 44 WBs with  the 16 PBs.
