I'm going to check this link periodically and see if the "price good only until" date changes. Roll Eyes

While it's only $37 - until Midnight, * October 2, 2008   *

the ad should read

    One thing that is really important that folks don't take into effect is, sometimes a 'system' will not give you anything worth playing for a particular drawing, so don't feel compelled that you MUST play every drawing.

    I noticed this about 6 months ago, where I didn't have anything come up that fit, so I didn't play: and I have tracked those that I didn't play, and it was absolutely correct: I would have not won anything had I played.   But in all fairness, there are games that I play because things are on my radar, and I have had no hits in some of them.

      Even when a system gives you a win almost every time, spending $20 and winning a couple of dollars every time gets old after a while.

        I'm trying to tweak my system but I don't know what hit rate would be acceptable to settle for.

        Hi mprober,

        So what is the latest on your system?  When will you have a profitable system and will you post it here?  Thanks, JS...

          Interesting question. It appears the answer is in determing how many sets you have to play.

           

          For example, if a Pick 3 player in Texas plays 10 lines each draw at .50 box per line, all that is necessary to break even is a win every 8 draws, excluding doubles or triples. Even with a win ratio of 12.5%, you've invested $40 in those 8 days and have won $40 with one win.

          Another extreme would be the person who plays .50 straight, ten lines a draw and wins 1 out of 8 drawings as well. He still has the same 12.5% winning persentage, yet his money shows +$210 for that period.

          As you see, the box player has to hit 5 times to come close to one straight hit.

          It would be ideal to have a program with a high percentange of hits and a high percentage of return.  Given the choice between the two, I'd choose the program that offeref the higher percentage of hits and learn to manipulate the numbers.
