I've notice that p/3 prediction page, success rate, seldom comes close to 1%.  Any ideas how that can be improved? 

What if you changed the format to say:  Limit the number of prediction to no more than 10 per day.

                                                                Do away with multi-state prediction.

                                                                Limit prediction to the state you reside in.

You could apply this to other lottery games as well.  I have a feeling the percentage of winning number would go up.  I could be wrong, what do you think?

    The one that matters is the prize ratio, not the hit ratio.  Hit ratio is more important when combined with other factors, not on its own.

      I personally think it's much more impressive when someone only posts 10-20 predictions for "1" state and is able to maintain a high prize ratio/hit ratio. Almost anyone can randomly choose 20 or more numbers and throw them out there for "all states" and hit somewhere!!

        One thing about it, this would send the prize ratio/hit ratio "right out the roof."

          Everybody has something different that is personally impressive to them.  For example, I don't think there's anything "less impressive" to someone who is good at predicting numbers that hit in multiple states.  In fact, one could say there is a art form to doing that well.

          Further, I would never imply that such people "throw numbers out there", especially when their statistics (i.e., money earned) are much higher.

            50 numbers is good. Allow enough for few different number sets that one may be testing at the same time.

            I wish we can some how section off the tested ones without mixing them all in together. Say, we have 50 numbers as our limit, but I want to test 25 numbes on "system 1", and another 25 on "system 2" would like to know which system did the best with its own statistic, and combined ones with 50 numbers like we have now. This would make a great premium feature.

                I want to thank you guys for your input.  No changes necessary.  For the most part, predictions run into the thousands monthly, with a prize ratio of around 50% plus or minus.  I did see one who only posted for the current month around 400 numbers, with a prize ratio of over 1100%.
