I used to play show me 5 in MO back when there were only 30 numbers. I made a chart, and managed to hit 4 out of 5 on 6 occasions. The night I had 5 of 5, DH wouldn't let me go play, so I threw all the charts and numbers in the trash, and walked away from it. I decided to start tracking and playing again. DD will be going to med school in 3 years, and a win would help pay for her college.

    I thought this:

    "The night I had 5 of 5, DH wouldn't let me go play"

    was going to say

    "The night I had 5 of 5, Ex-DH wouldn't let me go play".

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

    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.

      LOL Coin Toss.

      I would hate to lose my best friend over $30K.

      I like to play the lottery because it is a puzzle.

      If it were easy, it wouldn't be nearly as much fun.

      I do think it is possible to predict the outcome of a 5 ball game.

        I know you know I was joking, and you're right about losing a freind over $30K, but well, wait til you've read some of the threads here.

        JOKING AGAIN!

        So far, I've the best I've done is predicted 60% of the outcome of a Pick 5, still working toward 100%.

        Good Luck

          revoceryroad,

          "The thing that has kept me going with pick 5 is that there's almostalways a winner every night. Also, as far as jackpots are concerened, Ireally do need a $50k+ prize in order to get myself back on my feet,which was another reason why I have been spending so much time onpick 5."

          That is a very good argument for playing the Pick 5.

          "But if there are really this many people who concentrate on pick 5,why is it that the pick 5 forum is, for the most part, very inactivecompared to the pick 3 and pick 4 forums?"

          Pick 3 and Pick 4 are like roulette, they attract a lot of system players.

          As for jackpot games, Pick 5 doesn't get the attention that Pick 6 and 5 + 1 games do as players tend to be jackpot chasers.

          Also, judging forums by threads and posts can be a little deceiving. The Mystical Forum gets many more posts than the Mathematical Forum, but most of them are requests for dream numbers.

          Sure, we all want to hit a big jackpot, but in reality in one's lifetime are you much more likely to actually hit a Pick 5 than a Pick 6 or PB or MM.

          We don't have winners EVERY night on CA Fantasy Five  but it it usually something like 3 or 4 times a week.  I like that  50k to 100K go to soemone every few nights a week.  Right now no one has won for about four days straight so the Jackpot is up to over $360,000/ Boy could I use that kind of money!  I'm with you on the odds of winning our Fantasy five over Super lotto  plus and I truly think that I will win fantasy five and SLP is really just a dream.  I would love to have a system for Fantasy five  but at $dollar per line it would get real expensive.  its already $30  a month for one line.  I get  a 3 line set at every drawing SLP at $24 a month.

            I play only about 2 or 3 times a month, but when I do, it is usually Pick-3. I will play other games on occasion - if the jackpot is fairly high, for example. When I am in Virginia, I go and play my birthday on Tuesdays on which the day of the month adds up to 2 because 4 of the 7 times 104 has come up there, it has been on a Tuesday when the day of the month adds up to 2 - and mostly in January and March.

                  I like the pick 3 and 4,  I only play the Mega and PB because I have those in pools,  I'd  rather spend $1 to $2 in a drawing, and have more tickets in a group, than waste $3 trying to win that Monster all by myself
