I'm with THRUST on this, I discarded my vote too.

For one thing, you can't assume games or payouts will stay the same.

If anyone ever did develop a solid system to beat any game that game might become unavailable or drastically changed.

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.

    I think this applies if a person was say winning Pick3 consistently with only around $50 on a straight or $20 boxed. This would produce lots of profit and then be multiplied by how many players this method would then be available to along with progressive betting ($1, $2, and so on per number). The state would lose because it would most definitely spread...and fast!!!

    They'd have to adjust the game then. However, with the current number of straight and boxed hits recorded in comparison to the profit and payouts, they'll never have to change anything. For every so many boxed hits, there's only like one or two straights per that many also. Sort of like when I'd bet $350-$400 to make $100-$150 in profit and a boxed bettor could make half of that...give or take. It balances out in the end which I learned.

      I'd say it depends on the age of the children involved.  You don't teach a 10 yr old to drive.  They learn when they are whatever is the legal age for your State.  The lottery is gambling.  You don't teach kids to gamble.  Kids don't have all the rights of an adult.

      They have enough to learn just going to school and those are the important things for them to learn.  How to spell, write, read, math, etc;

      If and when they turn 18 and still want to learn, then by all means, show them what you know.  Although, usually by that age, they know more than the parents anyway.

               Great thread rosie, no I don't want my kid to gamble . I want him to pursue a great career with something he enjoys doing.

              Just this morning I was looking at him pouring over some computer magazines with his egg-head friends! and I said...nah..

              I know that other members here have Children, in their teens and twenties! would they take time to teach the numbers to their children!

                    Lucky Loser,

                    A lot of merit in what you said. I've been thinking about this thread and probably what would happen would the player who is real good with numbers would be done in by their own greed.

                    I'm not talking about someone who "shoots a shotgun at a dartboard", I mean ifc there was someone that could play one or two numbers a day and hit consistently. As long as hey didn't get greedy and not attract any attention, they could do very well collecting non-taxable payoffs.

                    But once greed took over and they brought heat on themself, they night indeed bring a change to the "cash cow" game they were beating.

                        Rosie, I vote to teach him and to start now if possible. The sooner he can start crunching numbers, the quicker he'll grasp the general concept and begin to develop new ways of accomplishing things. With a fresh, young mind some of his ideas may improve upon what you've already established and benefit you both...greatly.

                        Explain to him the up's and downs of the deal...show him when you lose and win so he can self-analyze what may have happened in his opinion. This is how new ideas are born. My dad has been doing this since just after the game started and I didn't get into it until way later. But, once I looked over what he had established and how he played, I got hooked and helped further develope the foundation with my own approach.

                        Don't get me wrong, he had a solid foundation but, anything can be better and we actually began to learn more TOGETHER about the game. It can be a very good thing as long you stress discipline and common sense with money. I had to learn the discipline deal in terms of when to play no matter how tempting but, I've always manged money pretty decently. I wish you and your son the best!!Thumbs Up

                              Yeah, I know what you mean and I wish I could do such a thing just like anyone else. But, because of how the officials have set the game up, I personally have no choice but to maintain plenty of shells. In all honesty, when I hit, it's the equivalent of a few people hitting boxed or one person hitting that straight with only a few bucks played...seriously. Nothing amazing about it, no rocket science involved. It just boils down to what I spend vs. the payout.

                              I do like the consistence, though.

                               

                              L.L.
