Playing 1 in 500,000 chance to win the pick 5 jackpot daily, or 1 in 3,003 chance? Even if the 1 in 3,003 comes true only 6-9 times a year.

Which would you like best?

        So how do we get to this 1/3003 level?  And how many tickets will we have to purchase?  How often?  Daily?

        Is this idea economically feasible?

          Ok so your asking if we would rather play a game with a 1 in 3,003 chance but we would only be able to play it 6-9 times a year?

          I wonder how many other people we would have to share the jackpot with if we won?

          I'm tempted to say I'd still play the 1 in 500,000 game since it could be played daily and then only play it when the odds were in my favor.

            - It may not work for all states, but it does work.
            - The amount of tickets is up to you. Each year there will be a gurantee 1,3003 odds many times when playing 15 numbers (for pick 5).
            - You will have to lock it daily with different numbers.
            - Yes. It's not suggested to play all 3,003 combos.

              While aiming for the jackpot, there are great chance of 2nd, 3rd, and 4th place winning too, lots of it thoughout the year. With the comparison of playing in with this method, one can win more by the end of the year. Even with smaller winnings while having the sure 1,3003 odd in your favor happening many times in a year.

                Ok I just saw your lock and load thread !

                Playing method .......I was thinking game. I would rather wait it out for the 1 in 3003 chance. That's the nice thing about a daily game.

                  Hey Diamond.. good quesstion.  I don't know..I'm almost at the point.. that I think it is all random and there are no patterns to figure out. I think I have tried every system out there , and I am still down $200.00. 

                   

                  I mean.. scratch-off's would have to pay a better return than this,  No?

                   

                  I do agree that QP's are mostly a waste of time. Especially when you purchase a number like 1-2-3-4-5   or  29-30-31-32-33.  You know there isn't a snowball's chance that a number like that will  ever hit, so you've wasted your money.

                   

                  So from that standpoint.. I guess Smartpicks are the way to go.. as you pointed out  1/3000 is better than 1/500,000.

                   

                  I also agree with other OP's , in that you pick the number and wait until it comes to you.. not the other way around, but you can go thru a lot of cash before you hit this way.

                    Are you a chaser or trapper?   Trapping can get expensive.  But good paper testing can justify any approach.  I have not developed a good enough trap yet...so

                    I can't help it...I'm a chaser. I'll take the 1 in 500,000 chance; every day.

                    With my blend system, I use a combination of cold numbers and followers.  This works especially well with RNG draws.....like New Yorks Keno every four minute "Quick Draw" game

                    I got three (3 of 5) prizes tonight, Feb 2nd with NY Take 5.  Actually had all the winning numbers in my eight total plays.  So close.

                      Hi DownandDirty,

                       

                      Yes.. I think I am a "Chaser".  I have won a few $10 tickets.

                       

                      I try to play a spread..

                       

                      1-cold         (zero hits in the last 12 draws)

                      2-Neutral    (2 hits  or less in last 12   draws)

                      2-Hot          (3  hits  or more in last 12 draws)

                      1-Random    (whatever # I need to make a 3-odd, 2 even

                                           ticket)

                       

                      I usually pick ALL 5 winning numbers... just not on the same ticket...    lol..   there's the problem..   Smile
