Hello to all and i'm glad I found this forum. I've been playing the little lotto here in Il. for years and have hit 4 out of 5 probably 30 times or so but cant get the 5th number.

 

I used my own system by studying the draws (usually no more than 10 previous)

I think they have a dial on the back of the machines so they can change drop time, spin time and door hatch time. Even a split second wil completely change everything.

Ive noticed when certain numbers are played repeatedly over a few days, they change a dial.

Tell me if im wrong here but lets say you take the machine and drop, spin and hatch the balls exactly the same over 100 times, the results would be almost exact.

It really pisses me off because when i go play my numbers its like they know exactly the numbers im playing and change a dial or 2

It might sound silly but now I go play just before the draw so they dont have time to change things around.

Right now the machines are all in a vicious loopy cycle and too hard to predict anything.

Am i making sense to anyone? I know what im trying to say just not sure if its coming out right.

Anyways, greetings to all.

            Welcome to the board cvzz.

            Ive noticed when certain numbers are played repeatedly over a few days, they change a dial.

            Do you mean when certain numbers are drawn, or when a certain number of tickets are purchased with similar numbers?  In most cases the lottery folk assume their drawing is 100% random, so they would not 'need' to change the dial settings for reasons such as those.  Especailly if all the similar tickets sold are all losers, they would not need to change a thing.  I could see them mixing up the timing a bit if they had an unusual amount of winners, but they probably have multiple machines and multiple ball sets anyway.

            Tell me if im wrong here but lets say you take the machine and drop, spin and hatch the balls exactly the same over 100 times, the results would be almost exact.

            There are so many variables in a ball drop it would be impossible to produce almost exact results on purpose for any series of draws.  As a test, take a set of 5 dice and drop them with the same sides up from 8 ft and see if you can achieve non-random behavior of the roll.  That itself would be much easier than positively effecting the outcome of a lottery draw, and still almost impossible to control.

            Not trying to be a downer, just my $.02.  Good luck with the lottery, sounds like you're on the right track with all the 4 of 5 hits!

            Venting is for loser's

                  Maybe your mistake is that you KNOW they are going to change 'drop times', etc. and YOU are not factoring that in.

                  Could you ?     Is it even possible ??

                  But keep in mind, if they didn't change the dynamics, it would not be random, and my guess is you are not the only person that's getting close, so they HAVE to change it up or someone would win it every single time.  They don't want that.

                    It's not like they're not leeting anybody hit. See the Illinois Little Lotto Jackpots 2008 thread in the Pick 5 Forum.

                    There's been 122 jackpots this year paid out to 170 winners.

                    Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                    There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                      Thank you all for your replies. I'll try to answer all in one post. Hitting 4 out of 5 30 times or so has been over a period of years. This year I only hit 4 twice. My system is just to study the past draws, thast it. Go to the illinois lottery site and search past numbers, then hit little lotto and click past month. I look for pairs, or even triples that tend to be drawn together. Then i try to look for a pattern in the machines. Right now the machines are in a high number mode and all my luck seems to be when its on the lower end. As for venting is for losers and its all luck... you're right but i didn't mean to make it sound like im a complainer or nothin, just stating what i see with the machines. I look at it like a slot machine. The casino dosent want you to win so they change things all the time. As for other people winning, yes, they do but thats just plain luck. Heres an example, say i play the numbers 1 4 13 19 23, then 1 4 13 19 24...25...26..27...all the way to 30. Then play it for 2 or 3 draws. I think and its only a thought that when the computer see these numbers played because of a past pattern, they change the machines dials. Just a theory now.

                       

                      "There are so many variables in a ball drop it would be impossible to produce almost exact results on purpose for any series of draws.  As a test, take a set of 5 dice and drop them with the same sides up from 8 ft and see if you can achieve non-random behavior of the roll.  That itself would be much easier than positively effecting the outcome of a lottery draw, and still almost impossible to control."

                      I respectfully disagree.

                        I lost you when you said they "changed the machine dials"?..They have inspectors watching the drawing all the time and the lottery is supossed to be on the leval or no one would play..It's ping ball balls and nothing but luck<<-----That's it..Not trying to be a smart a.. but luck is the word when it comes to lottery....There is no system that will work or the lottery would go out of business..If your system hits once in let's say 3 months it's still luck..

                          If you are getting 4 out of 5 so often, try this:

                          Play your system and for the 5th number, play every number possible in that slot.  What does Ill little lotto go to?  39?  That is only 39 bucks a shot.  If you're really that good, it's worth it.  Especially if you can time it good enough to not play when you think you will not win anything.

                            So if anyone else wins, it's luck, but not if you were to win?

                            No, it's all luck and that's all there is to it.

                            A couple of other things, for one, the lottery knows that most of the money won in the lower prizes, 4 of 5, etc...goes right back into the lotto. they don't care how many times you hit 4 out of 5, it's great advetising for them.

                            Another is, you're not the only one playing. Your theory of your numbers being shut out  only opens the drawing up for someone else's numbers. Think about that.

                            Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                              Getting 4 out of 5 is quite awesome. Keep at it, try other methods to get the final number. Don't stress about the lotto keeping an eye on your set of numbers and change the dail on you. There is no dail to chance, it draws on a random factor that all set of numbers have 1 chance of winning, even 1,2,3,4,5...when looking for patterns we must anticipate the slight change within them.
