          Yeah, I really like such responses as this defines a person that doesn't understand the whole lottery concept and falls within the masses of doubters. Sir, you are limited by what you currently know and see here at LP. There are only so many numbers (combinations) in this game and the art of matching the winning number while being able to successfully sift out the junk is not hard. Maybe for you it is.

          The words I DOUBT will keep you bound to where you are right now in this game. Know what? This day and time, I live for people just like you and you're the epitome of the FUEL I've inferred to in a recent post. I've had six (6) people whom I do business with read this reply and they all sent me similar replies. Thank you, once again, for unknowingly validating what I'm capable of and further promoting my business as your comment vs. their payouts are highly contrary to each other.

          I believe this one is all original by me. Now, you have a good day, Sir.

          Matchmaker read this carefully i know it won't sink in.
           
          I don't care how many people read my comment or what they perceived from it. Or what they said to you. The only people earning money from the lottery are the bookies and the lottery's themselves. Thousands of people including myself lose money every day and the limited wins keep them coming back for more. Lottery players are gamblers and gamblers have a tendencies to exaggerate their wins verses losses.
           
          Millions of people get up every day and visit a lottery terminal betting on pick 3/4 games not to include pick 5/6 games. The majority of people are playing what can only be perceived as a long shot at getting the straight win or a possible box win on pick 3/4 games. Sure some people do win but the majority of players lose their money every day there is no way the majority of people are earning a living playing the lottery and the select few that have won are possibly recouping some of the money they have lost over the many years of playing.
           
          Some people might be supplementing their income but for a person to say i am earning a living playing the lottery is just a fabricated lie. Unless a person has won a jackpot in pick 5/6 games. 
           
          I've been playing the lottery since 1972 and i can honestly say i have lost more than i have won sure I've had thousands of box wins and hundreds of straight wins. Many of my friends are daily lottery players too with similar story's except for a select few that have won a jackpot.
           
          Every day hundreds of predictors post picks here on lottery post and while many of them show a profit the overall at the end of the day payout to take in barely reaches the 50% mark on any given day for all predictors all games combined.

              retired...... CNC machinist and supervisor.

              I doubt anyone is earning a living playing the lottery. The lottery is a hole where all the money goes just like owning a boat.

              I totally agree.

              I've had friends who've consistently bragged about an occasional win, but when i ask them how much they've spent, they flat out lie.

              I have a friend right now who spends about 15 bucks a day on p-3, p-4 and Fantasy 5. He occasionally wins a boxed bet and rejoices. The most annoying part is when he doesn't win, (98 precent of the time) he'll proclaim he had a feeling that number was going to come out and/or that he played it just a few days earlier. I can understand that happening occasionally, but not everytime.

              Anyone who claims they've got the edge on p-3 for the long haul is full of shmear ! (Unless they prove it of course, which no one has)

              Long before I became a member here, I was lurking and saw those who came here making bold statements which ended in nothing but hot air. There will always be someone here from time to time who has unveiled the secret of the universe but just won't tell. And to add insult to injury, those folks think that the LP users are a bunch of idiots who just don't get the picture. We get the picture. We can see you coming a mile away.

              There may very well be a way to make a living on p-3 or p-4. But whomever is doing this is not gonna come here and brag about it without proving it unless they want attention. On the other hand, If someone really has found a way to beat the odds consistently, they will most likely be on some Island paradise sipping their margaritas.

                This is truly amazing and I, along with my friends, am honestly in total disbelief here. I will meet you half way and agree that the majority of people do lose their money every day and there's a reason behind it. It's called HIGH ODDS and it's the way the lottery was designed. YOU MUST PUT THE ODDS IN YOUR FAVOR AND IT COSTS MONEY TO DO IT! This is what I've been preaching from day one of joining this forum.

                Most people want to spend $20 or even less thinking they're going to win all the time just because they've gotten luck once or twice with doing it. The time in between the luck is the killer and it's where spending the right kind of money comes in to produce consistency of future wins. What part of numbers, money, and consistency do you NOT understand? The three work hand in hand with the Pick Games, man. Just because you and people you know aren't successful and willing to try and further develop winning play styles doesn't mean others aren't and can't.

                Everybody isn't like you, okay. Some people devote themselves to something no matter what the cost in order to become successful at it...regardless of what others think and say about them. These statistics mean absolutely nothing to me...you hit that one on a str8 in one try! Neither I nor my friends play every single draw but, rather those that suite the system and we bet BIG to cover more ground because it's easier this way. See, how many times one has to play is also factored into hit ratios along with profit/loss ratios. For instance, playing (5) draws in the "dark" and hitting on only (2) will cause problems while playing only(3) for the guaranteed hits puts you way ahead.

                Make no mistake, I am no dummy when it comes to this game and I have no reason to lie. If you're trying to go off of the few little number sets I've posted during my R&D, then you're really lost. That was only 1/6th of the numbers I run to get my str8 hits, dude. I'm a REALIST when it comes to this and you can best believe that I will never ever run less than around (400) numbers when I play for money and consistency.

                You've made it very clear that you and I are on totally different playing levels which heavily contributes to your "doubts" and "can't" mentality. Do yourself a favor and leave those statistics alone. Then, go back and remove the "oubt" and the "'t" off of those two negative words. Maybe, just maybe then you'll give yourself the opportunity to learn something you never thought was possible. You need not be rich to accomplish this, just use common sense applications and a reasonable amount of money spent wisely...not being stingy wanting it all for nothing. Nothing is free, Boss. It costs money to make this money.

                While I'm at it, none of my partners have quit their jobs for this deal okay. It is, in fact, supplemental as you say but two of them have made more in (1) week than they have at their day job...(4) figure pure profit I might add. This is a "living" as it has paid bills and put groceries in the fridge among other things. Your whole interpretation of what we do is completely wrong because you're so negative. This is designed to provide in the event of job loss or something bad happening and quick money is needed to take care of things, see. Yeah, it's about making money, too, in order to have a back up plan "just in case."

                With my Pick 4 system, he can play once a week and make $1500 in pure profit on a guaranteed draw like he did today. Retirement money comes to mind here. Buddy, when you think business you conduct business and you are business like. I have the interest both the President and Vice President of a major bank. This ought to tell you that I at least have a pretty good handle on what I'm doing. Try exerting all that doubt into positivity for a change...it's the only way you'll grow. Trust me.

                  See, this is exactly what I was talking about. That negative bandwagon. Here you go again. All this time I've been making posts and you've had nothing to say until now and it's because four4me stepped up to the plate and spoke his peace. You have no spine and you had to borrow his N**TS to step to me. This tells me a lot about you...you have no courage or drive to do anything on your own.

                  You're just a wimp waiting on a hand out from someone that has worked hard for what they have accomplished. When you don't get it, you pout just like you're doing now. Your avatar fits you perfectly my friend. I had to earn what I know and I don't just give it away to people who aren't serious and business oriented. You want to play Pick 3 with your parking meter money and it's not gonna work...ever.

                  The words WASTEFUL EXISTENCE come to mind now. You asked for it...

                            Well here in the Bahamas I know people who build their homes from lottery and make a living from it. Maybe they are breaking even I am not sure but i know some real number gurus that is what i call them because they can call a number and they ain't betting no small change on it either. For some people putting $30 straight on a number don't mean anything for them and for pick3 we get pay $900 here and that is tax free. So i think it depends on the gambler.

                              I am an educated financial services representative (I don't really expect to win the jackpot, but at the same time, I expect to win the jackpot!), a military officer (Navy soon to be wearing Army camouflage...how did that happen?!!!), and commercial truck driver (nice cashflow and ability to get around the country to play my hobby...different state lotteries!).

                              Get MONEY!!! Winning a JACKPOT lottery is all the HOPE and CHANGE I desire!!!  NOW give me MONEY!US Flag

                              The guy who won the presidency in 2008 really won the lottery...he is now millions richer, travels in first class style, and even has a staff that would be the envy of the richest Powerball winner (she has a staff of 2). Every night he goes to sleep, he probably plays the close of Dave Chappelle's Show: I'm rich beyatch!
