I assume we are all looking that "holy grail" of systems that would get you out of debt or win you the jackpot.

Assuming you found the winning system, how would you theorize it would work?

What characteristic do you think it would have?

(I am refering to jackpot games, PB/MM to be specific)

I'll start: It would have to have a higher "hit" frequency. That is, I'd say half the chances to win any given prize. For example, for the MM, the overall chance to win a prize would be 1 in 40; with a good system, it would be at least 1 in 20.

Most states recognize the chances are good that a player could reduce his odds of winning by a half by observing the history of past drawings so the payout amounts are adjusted accordingly.  For example, MegaMillions overall odds of winning something are 1:39.8 and the most likely prize is a 0+1 which pays \$2 so if a player reduced his overall odds of winning to 1:20 he would still be spending \$20 to win \$2.  To break even, a player would have to reduce his overall odds of winning close to 1:2 which would be the equivalent of reducing each number pool by 500% and playing a 5/11 + 1/9 game instead of a 5/56 + 1/46 game.

I think the winning system have to show some kind of format based on historical facts.

I have had a lot of success with this method.

I consider each ball a separate game.  For instance, Position One is a different game than Position Two, etc.  I make charts for each position and have had some considerable success this way.  I play one dollar per day and usually hit one or two numbers.  I frequently also miss a number by one digit.  Try this and see how it rocks your world.

Are you talking about a pick3/4 game rather than a jackpot type game like PB and MM?

I use this method also, (if I'm understanding you right). I'll hit 1 number with it occasionally. I track each number by position and frequency of hits in each position. The problem is that while the number 2 has hit 38 times in the first position and the number 13 had hit 23 times in the second, and so on, it doesn't mean they are going to all play on the same line, or even in the same drawing. But, I play this way, along with a line of random numbers because I haven't figured out a better method.

I sure ain't going to spend 20 bucks every draw just to win 2. I play 2 lines and megaply them. I'm really just trying to hit 5 of 5 for a million.
