Hi Guys,

I'm new here so looking forward to getting some usefule advice.

My question is if there is a way to select numbers to play in multiple sets. I play in the South African 6/49 Lottery, 7 sets of 18 numbers per set, 6 lines for each set for a total of 42 lines per draw. I have been testing this since the beginning of this months and in the seven draws I played I have won with at least three numbers each time, but have only won more than I played once....and not much more. Is there a way to select sets of 18 numbers (or less) containing ALL 49 numbers to reduce odds and maximise my chances?? Any help/suggestions/opinions would be appreciated.

Thanks Smile

    If you spray enough money on any gambling interest, you are bound to get something back.

    For the games that you hit, are you tracking WHY those numbers hit ?    What made you pick them ?   If you have a 'system', what is failing for the numbers you are missing ?

      When you put roughly one third of the numbers into play you can expect to average one third of the winning numbers among them.   Some draws you will have one or none, others three or four, but two will be the average. 

      While no method guarantees success, you would have some improvement in having winning numbers among those you are playing by using 48 of the 49 numbers in the minimum number of lines possible and making multiple sets of these with an eye to making "winning" combinations like those that win in your game.
