I'm not gonna get into an argument about it, it's obviously very close to your heart from what i've read.  The argument can be resolved with two questions. 

Do you have more of a chance of winning if we both purchase the same amount of tickets - NO

&  Have you ever won the lottery and I mean the jackpot - NO

    I know we all play to win, and we play this man's lottery, because it is, as I was so accurately told; "The working stiff chance to get out of the Trap" So now what do you do, I know many don't believe in a System,  I do---mine! because it works for me! And I don't knock others who have one and it works for them. I do the work out to Increase my odds, what do you do?

    The Idea of buying more tickets to Increase your odds of winning is in my estimation a System; it is the system of spending more money to get more money. So you are not just relying on dumb luck to win, If you did not believe in any system at all you would buy just one ticket,  But to those who stubbornly refuse to accept that a system can help unluck... I mean help unlock the door to a win, no amount of showing will help.   Play on and win!!

    forget what "they" say about youWhat you say about you?...

    Now, does it count??

          Let's see, what to do to increase the odds of winning.....

          First I go to the predictions page and look for the three or four individuals who might actually be playing their own predictions. The number of predictions made is a pretty good indicator for who they might be because some of the posters there make so many predictions that they either have very deep pockets and are just playing lotto out of boredom, or are actually already residents in the ILS.

          Then I look at the drawings for at least the last ten days for the game I'm going to play.

          Then I see if there are any recurring numbers.

          Then I get some playslips and one of those plastic lottto 'wallets' the lottery gives out. 

          I put the current Star Scroll for my sign in with the playslips, it gives you sets of numbers for all month and for individual days.

          Then I check my e-mails to see if the Lottery Fairy has sent me anything. I notice the number of messages and unread e-mails and wonder if it would make a good Pick 4.

          On the way to go play I look to see if I see the same numbers on diffferent license plates.

          On the way from the parking lot into the store I check for license plates again.

          Then I check out the horoscopes in a couple of the tabloids, especially the Sun and National Examiner (Tony Leggett is excellent - once he gave a set of numbers that kept paying $2 and $10 on Pick 5).

          Then as I approach the counter I do a "Hukka" like the Samoan football players.

          Then I take out the playslip where one or two boxes are marked QP and I have written PAY ME in another one and voided that.

          On the way out of the store I look at the impusle item displays to see if there are any stuffed animals, especially unocorns or elephants, and if so rub the ticket on them.

          Have a Lucky Day!

          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.

            I see some people here who say I hit by using my system..They won't be honest and say it's the first time I hit in 2 months..You win more by QP's and guessing then by following numbers..Just because a number don't hit for two or three weeks don't mean it will hit that week..Ping pong balls you can not handicap..I wish you nothing but "Good Luck" Guru because that's what it is "luck"..And good luck to everone on this site..

            It's difficult to measure the value of any system until all the results are in. For instance if we used a MM or PB system and hit the jackpot after 20 years of playing, we could call that system a success. It really depends on the type of game we're playing too because because in games like pick-3 with fixed payouts, we can't wait 20 years for a system to work.

            "Ping pong balls you can not handicap"

            Some people like to call it an "educated guess" but it's still a guess. Even if 1 or 2 digits repeat from the previous drawing 72% of the time in pick-3 drawings, we're still guessing it will or will not happen in the next drawing. And we have to play all the combinations with the 1 or 2 of the digits to get a 72% chance of winning.

            I've seen lots of drawings and the same thing happens every night; they mix up the ping pong balls, draw 3, 4 , 5, or 6 of them, and then we check our tickets to see if those numbers matched the numbers we played. I won't say winning is all luck because I've had success using systems but I still rub my tickets with my rabbits foot and cross my fingers.

              "I posted some predictions and I am not doing too badly"

              Must depend on how you define badly because with a 51.25% win ratio you can only expect to get back about 50 cents for every dollar you wager. I'm not knocking your prediction ratio but it's based on betting $57,000 this month and only getting back $29,000.

              If that keeps up, you'll need to catch a nice pick-5 jackpot just to break even.

                Not all lottery games use Ping Pong balls, some lottery games use computers as the RNG.  Google for Ron Harris, an employee who worked for Nevada Gaming Commission, he developed a program to increase his odds in predicting the next Keno game by using the past draw.  He and a friend went to Atlantic City, used the program and hit the $100,000 jackpot.  They were caught and he spent time in Nevada prison.  They did not hit the first time, all the program did was dramatically increase your odds.  So if he had listened to the naysayers he would have quit after first failed attempt (which might have been a good thing in not getting prison time), but he believed in his system and after a few tries hit jackpot.  His program exploited the fact that the RNG being used in Keno game was not truly random and using past draws could predict future draws.

                So if the lottery game is using a computer to generate an RNG, then that RNG is potentially exploitable or biased.  How many times have web sites and databases been hacked by people looking for exploits.  Just because the computer RNG has not been hacked yet does not mean that it cannot be exploited, just like web sited that store credit card information that have not been exploited yet, how do you know that they can't be.  If you want to secure a server from being exploited then you lock it in a room and pull the network connection, but that it makes it kinda of useless.

                    Do you have more of a chance of winning if we both purchase the same amount of tickets - NO

                    I don't agree with this!

                    Have you ever noticed that when you purchase more than one line of QP's it's as if the computer wheeled some numbers for you? Depending on how many tickets we're talking about.....if your tickets only contain a few select numbers and I manage to play all the numbers on my tickets....then yes I think I have a better chance of winning.

                    If you choose to play birthdays on your tickets and I play a larger range of numbers than yes I think I have a better chance of winning.

                    If I eliminate all the numbers I feel have a very slim chance of hitting and you decide to play all the numbers that randomly pop into your head then yes I feel I have a better chance of winning.

                    You get the idea...having the same amount of tickets doesn't give us the same chance...the numbers do matter!

                    As far as having a system that works every time...that would be impossible because there is no way to guarantee the outcome of the draw. I have my own very flexible system(if that's what you want to call it) for picking the numbers I play.

                    And I think the key to playing the lottery is being flexible...however you pick your numbers.

                        At the risk of being too simplistic.  I think that whatever path takes one from zero tickets to having a ticket(s) for a lottery draw is their system.  Such system may be as limited as buying a quick pick, but that is the system and if it leads to a win, it was a winning system for that draw. 

                        My cats appear to have won the cat lottery with the prize of free room and board for life.  I will have to try rubbing my tickets on one of them.

                          The best thing to do to increase the odds of winning is to buy more tickets.

                            To increase my odds of winning I buy lots of tickets.

                            Also, lately I've been thinking that persistence is extremely important too since there is only so much I can afford to pay each week for lottery tickets.  I'm in the process of starting a lottery pool too to increase my chances.

                              Ron Harris copied the RNG keno program while he was an employee of the Nevada Gaming Commission and found a casino in Atlantic City using the same program. Basically Harris had the results of future drawings. What they needed was a system to cash the ticket without drawing any suspicion, but Harris' cohort checked into the hotel using an alias and his real name was on his identification. When it took extra time to cash the ticket, Harris and his cohort bugged out leaving his laptop in the room as evidence.

                              "So if he had listened to the naysayers he would have quit after first failed attempt (which might have been a good thing in not getting prison time), but he believed in his system and after a few tries hit jackpot."

                              Harris should have listened to whomever coined the phrase "crime doesn't pay".
