Predicting numbers? Well....myself...I choose to think if one "thinks" this number will hit, or that mega ball will hit based on being "due" is just maybe strange luck mixed with alittle prediction from yourself.  They can sometimes pay off.  What if you were writing down your choices on the self pick sheet ,   your just about to fill in the 5 something tells you 8...pick 8!  Predictions? Inner voice? Your deceased great aunt Violet  telling you the numbers?  Who knows.  I want to believe its just a coincidence, but ya just never know.  Everyone wants to think that they can predict the numbers based on whatever.  Even me!  I've tried them all ( I think) and I'm still not a winner :(  But I do come pretty close "predicting" numbers right off the top of my head before heading to the store.

I ran to the store to buy a Match4 ticket the other day.  I sat down and was thinking up some numbers right off the top of my head.

I choose these  12-14-16-20

When I held up my picks, I thought I needed a one smaller number so with only the light of my computer screen, I grabbed my pen and for some reason scratched out the 1 in the 14...making it now 12-4-16-20.  I thought oops! I meant to scratch the 1 off the 12 to make my choices 2-14-16-20.  For a split second I was thinking  ahhh just scratch the 1 off the 12 too.  Why did my pen go to the 14 when I meant to change the 12? I thought it must be a sign..somethings trying to tell me something.  BUT!!!! AGAIN!!! NOT LISTENING TO MYSELF .........I decided to go with what I was going to do in the first place and just scratch off the 1 on the 12 for a final ticket of 2,14,16,20.  What did I get for not listening?  I could of won \$20.00! Not alot.  But it would of made me really, really happy.  But yet alittle peeved because if I did just scratch the 1 off both numbers, I would of only been off by 1 number for the \$10,000 win.

Numbers drawn  2,4,16,19 I won nothing.

I'd go with your own inner predictions.  Dumb luck or not..I think they do work to some extent.

Ok, so...this is really upsetting me.  The idea of predicting numbers based on either "their due to hit" or "the numbers came to me" etc. etc. etc.  I'm wondering if to an extent, something deep down inside is trying to tell me something, or is horribly teasing me.

I've heard before of those who thought of numbers, but didn't play them and the damn numbers came up.  Thus wanting to kick themselves.  Or when they actually play the numbers, they either get NO numbers right, or are only one number away from all the actual drawn numbers.  uuuuuhhhh I'm so frusterated.

Above is my post from yesterday in reguards to not listening or following through with numbers costing me a \$20 win.  It was then that I realized that this happens to me too dang often.  When I write numbers down that come to me and play them.......I'm usually only 1 number away from each drawn number, maybe 2 on a few.  Or I'll get a few numbers right, and the rest off by 1 or 2 for a win of nothing.

When I write numbers down I have a feeling for, and don't play, enough come up that I could of won some money.

Heres a few examples other than the one I had posted above.  I happened to keep a piece of paper from past draws and wrote the numbers drawn below mine.

Sept 5th Match 5:  I wrote 5-14-17-23 *Played, no money won*

drawn 5-15-18-20

Sept 9th Match 5:  I wrote 3-9-18-21   *Did not play, could of won \$20*

drawn 7-9-18-21

Sep 11th Match 5:  I wrote 7-10-14-22  * Did not play, could of won \$20*

drawn 7-10-22-24

Why do I write down numbers when I know I'm not going to play them?  I couldn't tell ya.  I guess I just want to see if I can come close.  Sometimes I have the intention on playing them but don't get the chance to run to the store before the deadline.  But my husband says that if I hit one day but didn't play the numbers, he's leaving me. lol

I've got some numbers for tonight and I'm going to play them this time.  Wish me luck!

You can run, but you can't hide mighty Jackpot...surrender to me at once!

I guess that is a matter of opinion depending on what you consider satisfactory proof.

I have far exceeded the predicted win rate for the last 2 years in Powerball. I seem to do very very well with white balls, and normal with the powerball. 2 years may seem like a lot to a person, but in the grand scheme of things, when dealing with such vast odds, it does not prove anything from a hard statistics perspective.

This is just the law of averages - you are doing better than most, and some do worse than most.

And, your time will come where the law of averages will start going against you, just as it did me:

in 2006,  I got 4x5 White balls eleven (11) times, in 2007 only twice, and in 2008, none so far.

\$110,000 in one year is not bad at all. But you're right: things have a way of evening out.

To a degree at all?

The reason I ask is because it came up the other day on here.

If it cannot be predicted, what is the point in websites such as these, if winning the lottery is 100% luck and not based on careful observation and analysis?

I still believe that, fundamentally, one may be able to predict what numbers will be drawn, but never with 100% certainty. But to some extent by analyzing patterns and tracking drawing picks one may approach (but never actually hit) the holy grail of absolute certainty.

Just my two cents in the matter.

I would say that with JP games there are so many possibilities to begin with that any given win can be attributed to almost anything. People have won with birthdays & ages, paper & patterns, fortune cookie numbers, letting their cat play with the lotto pen, letting the terminal pick the numbers, and even making a 'mistake' on their regular set of numbers.

Nothing is certain until after the drawing.

You need more research.

A 4x5 pays \$100, not \$10,000.

A 4x5 PLUS the PB pays \$10,000... I have not hit that.

Well thousands of apples fell and no one thought of gravity, but when it fell on newtons head, he was thrashed by his mum bitterly ... i from the age of 4 my mum says i did nothing but turning the 12 pages of a calender for 2 years, and this all this child wanted to do, however after two years of day and night seeing 30 numbers and 31 numbers on the 12 pages of a calender i am in Bombay India, I under the age of 7 I was kidnapped into USA by my neighbours in Bombay half of them settled in the USA, they kidnapped me after they realised I can pinpoint lottery numbers from past draws.  After my wealthy brother (Iam 10th in a family of 12) bought me back in no time to Bombay, I was thrashed and skinned off by my parents never to talk of numbers, just study. I became a marine engg., and Economics Graduate-met with accident at work and disabled.

I got a lumpsum to suffice rest of my life, but then I saw in Denmark-where last 22 years i live, there is lottery- I have personally written to the Danish Lottery Company twice pin pointing soem of the numbers, besides just once I pinpointed all the 6 winning numbers of the Viking lottery Draw to the Danish Police in Albertslund (Foreign Div.)my numbers I told the Police no one can challenge me, they are 100% correct and they will be 7-12-17-22-15-29 these numbers were given to the Police in the year around 1990s

the Police said to me they have never won at all and all poll in and play, I won that day, with my brains. The numbers were correct to the DOT and the Police had played them in their syndicate.  However the Cop played it alone and for some reasons i cant make it too big here, the total winning money wass around DKK 4.5million and he shared with me DKK 500,000.  After this I have never pin-pointed but won in Combos of upto 12 numbers over 1000 times for groups etc-this is my profession today to make all who come and join my membership millions within 5 years for 10% of investment.  Just last month I pinpointed the Singapore lottery numbers for Monday draw numbers 1-4-11-16-21-26-31-37-38 were predicted by me and I advertised these numbers for the whole world to win on eurobet- where for 4 numbers this betting site pays max. US\$ 200,000 per adult and over 1000 people won this money the Monday Last Month, although about 80% of them know me and have lost earlier about Max.60% or less.

This is a True Lottery Matter- Because you cnat it does not mean all Cant.  If you come to Denmark-- believe me in 4 months you go back with a million Dollars- jsut like dr. Phil helps couples i will help people sometimes.  steve skype kaitas6

are you that Indian dude from India on the internet who claims he has pin pointed the lottery numbers of major world lotteries? Because there is one guy on the internet from India, they even have his picture claiming he has won several world lotteries....Is that you? They even have a picture of him...I saw him while browsing for lottery/lotto secrets on the internet...

I notice your avatar is the same one a member that was here at lp earlier this year saying he was from China, i think it was cumming china or some place out there...sorry to say this but his english was better than yours, he look like he was native to the U.S...

Can lottery numbers be predicted? I also believe what some have said before, yes you can but not 100% not even 50% of the time...Actually i am talking about jackpot games...Like how i've said before, it only takes 1 time to win Powerball only 1 time, you don't need to win it 3 and 4 times...First you need to win it 1 time when the jackpot is above 20 million that way you can have enough money to invest or open up a bussiness and make your money grow...Secondly, you also need to win it 1 time because if you win it 2, 3 and 4 times the state lottery will start suspecting and so is everyone...

The Forex trades: 1.6 Trillion dollars EVERY day, that´s more than the GDP of the Carribbean Central America, COMBINED. Enough to feed every crook out there for centuries...To all Geniuses & Powers Countries of the World the Planet needs breakthroughs in all Medicine, Veterinary, Biology related fields, Psychology, Population Psychology/Sociology..They need to genetically ingeneer new plants species/types to give more variety of plants and thus have more resources for combating diseases¨
