There was a poll a few days back about when you hear lotto what's the first game you thjink of.

I think for most people it's jackpot games, a chance for a life changing score.

Sure, Pick 3 and 4 are vastly different in respect to winners and losers, but as people on this board have said, we don't know of anyone making a living at them.

A pit boss in the first casino I worked in was telling us about gambling books and he said after you were in the business a little while and got to know the games you'd never get past Chapter 1 of any gambling book without going, "This clown is full of baloney, too."

Let's say

Lotto maxim, jackpot games,

If you're approach is other than a buck and a dream

you're more than likely going to get creamed!

and let's add,

People telling you you can make a living playing lotto aren't they themselves making a living at it, they're making a living tellg others that they can.

(Much gambling information is written by players trying to raise money to go play more.)

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.

    Your lucky numbers for Powerball or Mega Millions could come in once in a lifetime.

    The odds however, are against them coming in in your lifetime.

    And that sucks.

      Those who talk the most about winning have won the least.

      System sellers are among the guiltiest of these.

        Some of Paul Lynde's answers on Hollywood Squares?

        Green laugh

        Good point, time*treat. It rreally was entertaining watching the cntestants and the audience yelling "No Whammy", wasn't it? And then when one showed up.....

        George Gobel had some good answers on Hollywood Squares too.

         

        Q) What was Grampa doing when he put the mashed potatoes on top of his head?

                  In lottery discussions, anything that mentions a system will get a lot of attention, no matter how lame the system being discussed is.

                  Lottery players cannot agree on what is and isn't a quick pick.

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

                    Gail Howard and others have said don't play consecutive numbers.

                    In a thread in the Pick 5 Forum Pumpi tells us that Florida's Jan 17 Pick 5 was

                    interesting... NY Take 5 was 27-28-30-31-32 and Bashley572 posted NY's as

                    11-29-30-32-32.

                    Maxim: All it takes to disprove most system peddlers is to simply track the games.

                      Despite the availability of leagalized gambling, as long as the winnings on such gambling is taxed some gamblers will always seek out illegal gambling.
