     Below are copies of my latest winning PowerBall tickets. I wish I could say I chose these numbers myself, but the truth is Steve Player and OpCom, Inc. deserve ALL of the credit here. Last May I received the Players' Action Monthly newsletter and spent $300 for a subscription to weekly PowerBall numbers chosen by Steve Player. All I do is fill out the bet slips and buy the tickets. I have the choice of playing the numbers "as is" or adding the PowerPlay feature for an extra dollar per combination. Given the astronomical odds against hitting a PowerBall jackpot, I play mostly for lower-tier prizes, so I almost always select the PowerPlay option, except when I have my head up my @ss (more on that later). Since there are 48 numbers to play on each weekly list, my ticket cost is $96.00 per drawing, or $192.00 per week.

     You can read the next few paragraphs or just skip to the tickets, but I wouldn't be giving Steve Player and OpCom their due without telling the following story.

     Before I received my first subscription list, I was required to sign a registration form and non-disclosure agreement, which is standard procedure for many of Steve Player's high-end pro systems. The letter enclosed with the agreement stated that I would receive my first list of numbers for the month of July (it came in the mail during the final days of June). To make a long story short, I bought my tickets faithfully for five weeks and won NOTHING. When I received a new list of numbers for the month of August, I filled out my bet slips using the prescribed numbers and again won NOTHING during the first two weeks. I was beginning to lose my patience, as well as a significant amount of money, so I whipped off a nasty, scathing letter to OpCom. I explained that correctly predicting one or two numbers in the white field didn't pay anything. I pointed out that Mr. Player hadn't been able to correctly predict the red PowerBall even once in the past six weeks. I complained about the pile of sixty or so non-winning tickets taking up space on one corner of my work station. I called people names and even swore a little bit. Just for emphasis, I even banged my fist on my desk a few times as I was typing. In short, I whined and moaned because I wasn't winning any money. However, being the trooper that I am, I promised I would keep playing a little longer before giving up, if only to demonstrate my faith in Steve Player's abilities as a lottery prognosticator. I spent another $384.00 during the last two weeks of August, and added those tickets to my ever-growing stack of losers.

     Then my September list showed up in the mail. I could feel my ears turning red with fury as I looked over the month's selections. "Screw it," I mumbled, "I'm going down with the ship!" I sat down with my Sharpie pen and filled out my bet slips, but I elected to save some money and so I didn't PowerPlay my selections. The next day I drove to the store to buy my tickets (I always buy my PowerBall tickets on Tuesdays and Fridays because, when the jackpot gets high, the terminals around here have a bad habit of going down on the days when the drawings are held). Returning home, I tossed the tickets on top of my dictionary and went about my daily routine. On Thursday, September 3, I called up the PowerBall web site from my "Favorites" list and learned that I had hit three numbers on four lines, which only paid $56.00, since I neglected to choose the PowerPlay option. Anyway, I actually won $8.00 in that drawing. "Yippee," I thought to myself, "the drinks are on me tonight." 

     While I was mildly surprised, I was also a little disappointed, so I didn't buy any tickets for the next drawing. I reasoned that, if three numbers had just hit in Wednesday's drawing, it would be a waste of money to play the exact same combinations again on Saturday. By saving that $96.00, I missed out on a very significant win. Had I played the same numbers I played the previous Wednesday, I would have hit THREE numbers on TEN lines, and FOUR numbers on TWO lines. The PowerPlay multiplier was x 3 (again), so every three number hit was worth $21.00, and the two four numbers hits were worth $300.00 each, for a total return of $810.00! 

     Humbled, I sat down and wrote a heartfelt letter of apology to OpCom. The subject line read, "EXACTLY what I deserved ..." I told them I had learned my lesson, and that my faith in Steve Player had been fully restored. I asked that they ignore my previous comments, and brought to their attention the fact that I truly am an idiot. I gave them my word that I would never again attempt to second-guess Steve Player's predictions.

     So I kept playing, making sure to pay the extra dollar per line for the PowerPlay option. The next three drawings proved fruitless, but then, on September 20 (a Sunday), I checked the numbers and found that I had won $168.00 in Saturday's drawing. Steve Player had once again correctly predicted three numbers, this time on eight lines out of the forty-eight I had played. I thought, "Wow! If I were a drinker, I really could buy drinks tonight!" I do enjoy an ice-cold beer on occasion, when it's very hot and I've been working in the yard, and I must confess a weakness for Walker's Blue Label Scotch during the holiday season. Beyond that, though, I just never developed much of a taste for alcohol.

     My personal drinking habits aside, this brings us to the final week of September. Last Tuesday, I filled out my bet slips with the week's numbers and headed for the store. My subscription list said, "Use PowerBall 11," so I chose that number for all 48 selections. For the first time, I was actually looking forward to checking the numbers. Truthfully, since the MUSL performs FOUR test draws prior to the prize drawing, I never expected that Steve Player would be able to correctly predict the red PowerBall number, but that's what happened. He was also right about the 7 in the white field so, overall, it was a pretty good payday ($860.00). Admittedly, I still haven't won back what I've spent since the first week of July, but I can see he's beginning to zero in on a big hit. Winning tickets are beginning to appear with some consistency now, so I anticipate at least a five-number hit at some point in the near future and, given Steve Player's previous record for winning state lotteries all over the country, even a jackpot isn't out of the question. What you see below are the ten tickets I bought using Steve Player's numbers from my subscription, which total $840.00 in winnings. I've purposely omitted another $20.00 winner that contains my "regular" numbers, those that I've been playing for the past twenty years or so. If those numbers should ever be drawn (hopefully before I'm dead), I feel more comfortable believing I won't have to share my jackpot because I revealed my numbers to the world. I'm funny that way (and maybe a little selfish). 

     Many thanks to konane and Todd, for helping me to figure out the LP.com Image Manager (mouse over "Members" on the blue menu bar, then click on "My Images" for detailed instructions on using this feature). I've been trying to post these tickets since Thursday morning, and I was ready to give up. Thanks especially to Steve Player and OpCom. I know many members believe that Steve Player is a con artist and that his systems don't work. However, I've been a big fan of his for many years, and I hope the images below will give you cause to reconsider. His Pick-4 PrimeLine and Pick-4 MoneyMap Systems are, in my opinion, two of the best available at any price for that game, and they both beat ANY software-based system on the market, hands down. 

     Please don't PM me and ask me to share his predictions for upcoming drawings. I signed an agreement to keep that information confidential (plus I paid three hundred bucks for it), and I believe any intellectual property should be afforded protection at least equal to that of a copyright or patent. If you want to buy a subscription for your favorite game (MegaMillions, PowerBall, Pick-3, Pick-4, Pick-5 or for your state's lotto game), you can contact OpCom via one of the links below. I'm not sure whether these subscriptions are still available but, as you can see, it certainly wouldn't hurt to ask.

                  Congratulations to you.

                  Couldn't you just share the "Powerball Number" prediction with the rest of us?  Some of us don't have $300 to spend and unemployed.   Share the wealth - it's a good omen.

                  Thanks and good bless.

                    I knew 11 was going to hit that day (37 and 11 are my fav. PB #'s) and won $15. Wish I had your system so I could have won more.

                      I hate these "touts". Sports bettors use them too. Watch- he'll go cold again and you'll be out $100s...

                        I am probably the only one not as excited as you. Did you say you spend around 200 a week and you think 800 is a lot of money.

                        Did you just start using this guy. It is a good return but that is what u spend a month. Hope ur win isn't to reel  in. If he has other customers who is to say you bought that particular ticket. Did read that story.

                          I am probably the only one not as excited as you. Did you say you spend around 200 a week and you think 800 is a lot of money.

                          Did you just start using this guy. It is a good return but that is what u spend a month. Hope ur win isn't to reel  in. If he has other customers who is to say you bought that particular ticket. Did read that story.

                          I agree, 800 won is nothing if you are spending 200, you will need to add a zero ($8000)to the winnings before it makes sense

                          Money won is twice as good as money earned!

                            If I understand what he wrote, he would have won a bit more than $1600 if he had played the suggested numbers for al of the drawings. That would mean an outlay of  $2304 for tickets (figuring 12 weeks at $192/week), plus $300 for the subscription. That's a return of better than 67% of the cost. Not a profit, but better than the 50% that PB puts in the prize pool, and even better when you figure that more than half of the prize pool goes to the jackpot.

                            Of course that still doesn't mean that Steve  Player's system (or anyone else's) works, or is worth even $5. Spending $192 each week guarantees that you should have frequent small wins. In fact the odd are almost spot on for having a 1+1 and 0+1 every week. Jim simply got lucky by playing those numbers multiple times, and having success twice out of 24 tries.

                            What I find interesting is that after not winning for a while (which is what should be expected), and then having one small victory, he apparently sees that as such strong proof that the "system" works, that he writes a letter of apology over having doubted. I also find it interesting that getting getting a 3+0 match and then getting a 1+1 and 1+0 match aparently makes him think that "he's beginning to zero in on a big hit," when the data suggests that more recent predictions are worse.  I'm sure that's how people like Player and Howard keep customers. People are very good at forgetting failures and hardships and remembering the good stuff. Plenty of people would  lose for 9 months and then win  $1000, and believe it was because the system worked, instead of realizing that probability guarantes it, but they've also lost  more than they won, as probability also guarantees. I assume the subcription lasts for a year, so let's see what happens over the course of a year. My prediction is that in the long term his results will be far closer to what probability suggests.

                              That is my point exactly KY Floyd.

                              What says this guy has a system. Because he can bet on one PB number a get a hit. I have played PB for over three years. The last thing I would do is bet on a single event or occurance. That goes for every lottery game.

                              If this guy had a system why doesn't he sell his software for $49.99 so you can buy it instead of giving his $200 weekly. I use the same betting technique. I don't see what proves he got a winning system. If he is doing this for a lot of people it is easy to scam all of you like a pyramid scheme. Feed you positive result now and then to keep you happy and keep the big pot to himself afterall you would agree you don't expect all your money back.

                              My point is I don't see why he should be buying your tickets for you. Where is the prove that he has a system.

                              I have to point out that I  haven't read your post and I will when I am bored cause you sound execited. Good luck to you.
