Many times no amount of proof the other way will change people's opinions when they have their mind made up about something.

    Wasn't any need for sarcasm off or on, I'm talking eons beyond politics, I am talking lotto. 

    Just consdier the "stinger" threads here on LP regarding the lottery, QP vs PP (Player Picks). Take the Illinois Pick 5 game, I use it as an example because it's drawn every day. 119 jackpots paid so far this year, 104 of the winners played a QP (includes shared jackpots). Think that convinces any of the anti-QP crowd anything? Think again.

    Then how about anonymous or not, annuity or cash option, etc...ad nauseam.

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

    Lep

    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.

            The belief that luck has nothing to do with winning a jackpot is a pretty good indicator of the size of a player's ego.

              Coin, et al-

              Crapshoot:

              We know that to call something a "crapshoot" in English slang is meant to communicate futility of action. However, in its original Craps game context,paradoxically  this phrase means that the player is hitting consistent money!

                  edessaknight,

                  Yeah, crapshoot is taken to mean "it's a gamble, can go either way."

                  As you know, a long roll is a "monster". We had a guy that would get on the stick and say, "The shooter is rolling a monster", and if they kept rolling he'd say, "Now theyr're rolling a Yeti!"

                  Green laugh

                   Daveyl,

                  Good ones! Especially the last one, bingo!

                      Whenever someone else wins a jackpot, no matter who, no matter where, there will be those who say "good for them", and sincerely mean it, and invariably there will be someone who will say "It should have been me."

                          People are either born lucky or they aren't.

                          Thinking one can do anything to improve their luck is akin to thinking they can change their astrological sign.
