system = 90 sets of numbers @ 50¢ea. = \$45.00 to win \$100.00 21%-64% of time.

at 20% spend \$225 to win \$100 = -\$125
at 66% spend \$135 to win \$200 = +\$65

If you're at the low end as often as you're at the high end then you're going to be lucky to break even.

RJOh you have said tiggs word he loves to see.."LUCKY" and that's where it's at..Anybody who thinks they are an expert in picking ping pong balls are kidding themselve's..Good "luck" is where it's at..

In this case, just how LUCKY have you been lately??? In fact, how LUCKY have you been in the last month??? Boxed or STR8. tiggs, I could entertain you with a seven course meal comprised of your own words. However, it's just not worth it.

I believe I understand your thought process, though, and it's really not your fault.

If a system produced 90 sets of numbers inorder to win a 100 dollars--and would do so 21 to 64 percent of the time.

Would you play the 50 cent tickets inorder to win a boxed pick 4 play?

Luck Loser<<<------What does this mean?..tiggs would rather lose \$5 then \$45...Maybe you should change your name to "expert winner"..Go over to the News Headlines and see the woman who won 37mil after buying 3 qp's and tell her she's doing it all wrong..If you hit a jackpot your a winner other then that it's the lottery who wins..Without a bunch and I mean a bunch of losers's the lottery would shut down..Next!!!........

Luck Loser<<<------What does this mean?..tiggs would rather lose \$5 then \$45...Maybe you should change your name to "expert winner"..Go over to the News Headlines and see the woman who won 37mil after buying 3 qp's and tell her she's doing it all wrong..If you hit a jackpot your a winner other then that it's the lottery who wins..Without a bunch and I mean a bunch of losers's the lottery would shut down..Next!!!........

Alright, tiggs. Isolated things do happen as I've stated many, many times, okay. You're comparing a grape to a banana with MM vs. small Pick games, first of all. Totally different animals. I'm no expert but, I'm <snip> good with workin' my numbers for consistent wins...str8.

Go tell the Pro Basketball players who hit (3) pointers routinely...that it's LUCK. How about the Pro Golfers that make those long shots into that itty-bitty hole over a rough surface of grass/turf...LUCK. I could go on but, you get the point...maybe you still don't and never will.

There is only (1) person within this entire site to which I've personally demonstrated my capability in its' fullest extent. I produced (3) str8 hits...in a row for her, on (3) separate states. She had the numbers to prove it as well as the money. It came as no surprise to me but, she was overwhelmed!!! I was so glad to do it, too.

When you truly know, what you know, then you know. I guess we both know what we know, tiggs, and I'll no longer contest what you know because there's NOTHING to contest. Best of LUCK on your future losses.

HAWK

Let's say you play your 90 sets for 100 drawings and win \$100 in 64 of them. The amount won would be \$6400 minus the \$4500 you wagered or a profit of \$1900. The break even point is 45%, but if the system only produced at a 21% hit rate, you would lose \$2400.

A 64% hit ratio out of 100 drawings is too high if the 90 combos don't include doubles.

Stack your one smart dude and live in Ky..ridge isen't going to like that one bit..He thinks all Ky people are dumb but you have proved him wrong which he is about 99.9% of the time he is..Keep up the good work..

Why thank you LL..Nothing wrong will the elderly we can make mistakes and nobody will care..tiggs does know how lotto works..Lotto wins peroid..unless you hit a jackpot and if you read some of the winners stories they are also losers..At tiggs age he can mess up but has a short time to think about it and if you mess up,and you will sometimes Mr Perfect you have many years to think about it..tiggs regrets many many things he has done wrong but winning the lottery and messing up won't hurt him like it would you at your age..So "good luck LL"..LUCK..

Yes.

Play 90 sets of numbers to win \$100.00 21% to 64% of the time?

10 days x 90 sets = 900 numbers played at a cost of \$450

Hitting 189 times playing 900 numbers (21%) over 10 days = \$18,900.00

Hitting 576 times playing 900 numbers (64%) over 10 days = \$57,600.00

Hitting an average of 42.5% with 900 numbers over 10 days = \$38,250.00

Trick question? OP you spend a lot of time in the mathematics forum, maybe this is too obvious.

Nice spin job dr65 but did you do PR work for Madoff or something?

Let's look at it this way. Using your example of hitting 189 times out of 900 and winning \$18,900, you didn't mention the 711 losses which come out to a minus \$319,550, using a cost of \$450 a play.

Hitting an average of 42.5% of the time means losing 57.5% of the time. That's a loss of \$232,875 as compared to the win of \$38,250.

Anyone who has deep enough pockets to sustain the inevitable cold streak of \$450 a pop is just playing to play.

From my sig below:

I sell everything at a loss but make up for it in volume
- Milo Minderbinder, Catch-22

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.
