You guys know any interesting methods (not system) of picking your numbers.

After you generated your combinations from one to a quater billion or whatever the odds are.

Do you know any intersting ways to select you numbers.

There is the common random picks.

There is the key number method were a number or two appears in all the lines which is good if your timing it right.

Currently, I am using the method of randomly pick a combination, block those numbers in any other lines and pick another combination, repeat till I run out of numbers. This is good for coverage.

What other interesting or fun methods do you use or know about.

On the next  rainy day weekend,I plan to apply TTT to PB for chits and giggles using ranking and 5 rows of 12 to see if a general area of a good hit <if it's possible>can be pinned down once every 3 months...sounds crazy, but I haven't heard anyone mention using ttt for JP games

How about choosing only the lines that add up to a certain total?   For instance, only the numbers that total 7, or whichever is your favorite number.

Good idea but I don't get the total of seven.

Sorry for the late reply, editgap.

An example would be:

for the pick 3 ----------numbers 421=7  (4+2+1=7)

for the pick 4-----------numbers 5011 (5+0+1+1=7)

for the pick 5, you can do it two ways:  like above where all the numbers total, oh, let's say your age.  I'm 39 years old, so  1+3+10+15+20=39

or you could use only numbers that add up to 7, for instance (not in order) 43-34-52-25-16 ect...  where 4+3=7,3+4=7,5+2=7,2+5=7 and 1+6=7.

Same with pick 6 as above.

Yeah, if you really like to complicate things, try making the numbers add up to the jackpot of the game you're playing.   Which would be 20- over 300.   Those high numbers get pretty interesting.

For powerball tonight that would be 49.    So every game it is a different total.

Of course, I should warn you that I explored this possibility fully with little to no results in winnings., so just keep in mind it is for fun only.  The total of the numbers are almost never the total of the game's jackpot that night.  In fact, I don't know what affects the total of the drawing or I would get very excited about this way of picking numbers.

Sometimes just to change up I'll use pennies that I have numbered, and pick them out of a jar at random. I'll do this for however many lines I want to play.

Has it worked?

No.

Have done the same thing.

Good luck to everyone!
