I've been playing the lottery for years with no luck.  Would buying a system from one of the online lottery sites be helpful?  I've been looking at this one called Power Ball Pro for $37.  They say if you do not win money or are not satisfied that you can get a refund within 3 months.  Does anyone know what might be helpful for me or are we all just dreaming in the dark?  I have $13 invested in the Mega Millions drawing tonight which is more than usual for me.  I play other games too Lotto, Powerball, Texas Two Step and Cash Five so I usually just play $2 each to keep within my budget.  I am new to this site and studying the lottery.  Perhaps someone could recommend a beginners system or book that would be helpful.  I know that it's still chance but surely there is a way to go from winning nothing to winning something some of the time.

    If you've been playing the lottery for years then you probably can answer your own questions as good as anyone here.  If winning a lottery was as easy as buying a book or a computer program, there were be more winners.  You can download some those programs that have a free trial period before you buy to get an idea of what's out there.  Good luck what ever you decide.

     * you don't need to buy more tickets, just buy a winning ticket *

      I like your style.

      There are no guarantees. Improvement comes with experimenting. Trial and error.

      Online systems are only good as their promos. How desperate they seem to sell you that system.

      You know why you never see a commercial on TV for Ferraris and Rolls Royces?........Yup..........Everyone already knows how good they are, and the demographics don't apply anyways. Only the rich need apply...lol

      There are one or two exceptions to that rule however. If a system costs more than a thousand bucks, there may be some credence, and needs further investigation. But it's rare, and only experience will allow you to make a wise call.

      Instead, try to look for the potential abilities YOU may have. Look at the numbers for an hour and I promise you'll see patterns. What do you have to lose? You'll be amazed. Meditation on numbers works well too. Find a quiet place and ask the universe questions in your head. I know it sounds whacky, but it does aid the selection process if you do it right.

      Jus have fun doing it, and the revelations will follow through.

        but what if the system says but a ticket with ea powerball on it for say $55.  then you are are guranteed to win,

        only $2 but you won no refund.

         

        id suggest investing your $37 in tickets and try the library,  or bobp's excellent ebook here for a donation of some cash.

        theres more than enough there to keep you busy while waiting to pull the big one.

          "You are so right @ Joker17.  I just got home, checked my numbers.  I played, 428 straight, for tonight, that's my mom's birthday, that's my Lucky number.

          Guess what dropped?  

          428

          317<----dropped,

          206

          I wanted the 428 to come in so bad, but, all I had to do was keep it simple and do my one up on each number and one down.,   Oh, so I would have had to play 539, also.

          OMG,

          Good Luck.

          The Struggle is real!

              Thanks everyone,

                          I guess you are all right, now that I think about it if there was a system out there that worked then the Mega wouldn't go so long without getting hit and there would be a whole lot more shared jackpots. 

                   I have tried a lot of crazy things now that I think about it makes me laugh.  One time I got these little rocks and wrote the numbers on them.  One bag for the 5 and a seperate for the bonus ball.  Then I reached in and pulled out 5 rocks over a hundred times and recorded all the numbers to see which ones I pulled the most and then played those and repeated the process with the bonus ball.  What can I say?  Don't try this at home.  LOL  I think I tried to do it in a semi-meditative state chanting something to the universe like "my wish is granted." 

                   Well, that is just too funny but if nothing else learning to laugh at myself is good for me.  I did look at all the last winning numbers this time and I thought I noticed that my odds would be better if I eliminated 25 of the most recent ones and of course I threw in the family numbers, my kids ages and birthdays and such and one quick pick since most winners seem to be that.  Of course, I'd be happy with a 3+the bonus ball atleast for this week.  LOL 

                   I am trying to figure out this new P3 difference system now.  If I could hit just 2 of those a month for $500  I'd be on top of the world.  Well, wouldn't that just be crazy if someone from this site wins that Mega?  I never knew this site was here.  I never knew that there was anyone else out there who was so into the lottery they were willing to join a site about it.  No one but me that is.  This is great!!!  I hope you guys will laugh right along with me (let's not cry) when I come up with some other surefire way to hit the big one. 

                   There was a spell I used to do to attract money on the night of the lotto too but alas no luck there either.  Perhaps it just takes some time for that stuff to come back once you put it out there.  I sure hope so.

                The last system I bought on ebay was so bad I tried to get the seller kicked off.  ebay didn't care so long as the seller was willing to give a refund.  Sometimes a refund doesn't cut it, legal doesn't make it right, like sorry doesn't pay the rent.

                Most systems can legally claim to improve your odds by causing you to buy more unique combinations. 

                Considering your budget, the only thing I'd suggest would be a deeper education in lottery concepts, what happens more often then not.  (Most players tend to focus on the extreme, rare and unusual.)  This can be helpful whether you're making up two combinations or two hundred.

                  Yes, you are so right and guess what?  For all the time I spent trying to pick numbers yesterday and today for the mega, I actually won with just my family numbers and not a cent with the others.  I had the powerball 8 ( month of August, first born) 31 (same son's birthday) and 9 ( month of September, my youngest boy).  Well that was it $10 so I lost $3.  I should probably count that as a win.  LOL  If I'd have added all my kids ages together like I sometimes do I would have had 21. 

                       One time I figured out that I could have hit the lottery if I'd have figured all our personal numbers together such as ages (can't add in mine to all of them or we'll go off the chart) or months born added up.  Anyway some were birthdays and some were ages and some were this or that added together.  I think I want to figure out every number that just me and my kids (3) can come up with and then try to wheel that somehow. 

                                                           And more spells and meditation of course,

                                                                          Sandra

                    Whatever you do, stay away from U.R.N. Systems, Steven Baker. His "System" is inferior, his instructions are impossible to understand, and he DOESN'T honor his refund policy.

                      Buying systems is a novelty that quickly wears off, forcing you to continue buying more systems in order to continue being "fun".  Ultimately, you'll waste a lot of money.

                      That's why Lottery Post's premium features are mostly not "systems".  They are tools, data, and statistics to help any system -- and to help you build your OWN system. 

                      There is no more fun system to play than your own -- especially when you win.  You get the credit, and it feels much better.

                        Radicalmommy,there are some good systems out there but only some.You can make a whole heck of a lot more money selling systems than you can playing the lotto thats for dang sure...

                        Most people loooose their azzzes simply because they dont know bubkus about statistics plus its impossible to write out lengthy statistical data because most if not all people couldn't understand it in the first place unless they have taken an advanced statistics course in college..

                        The most common mistake people make is thinking that they have a 1/1000 chance of hitting at pick 3....this kind of irrational thinking has led people to go broke plus the states lotto pick3 putting this on thier website is bordering on slander...in actuality if you play one single straight played combination the odds of hitting  are 6049 for a 99% degree of certainty whereby you'd only win $500.00 in the process....so the odds are "NOT" 1/1000 as so many mistakenly believe...

                        Technically speaking you have to spend 1000.00 dollars to cover your backside at  100% although you'd still loose 500 bucks in doing so ..

                        State lottos make a killing and the odds are waaaaaay worse than the roulette table at Vegas and if the casinos had these kinds of odds they'd go broke because no one would visit them knowing they'd get robbed,however state run lottos have somehow managed to get away with things simply because theyre the govt and GREEDY at that..

                        Keep in mind too that its hard to run Binomial/Hypergeometric Distribution formulas to crack the lotto because most states keep a certain amount of data hidden by means of several pre-draws....keeping a given amout of data hidden from the public to me is tantamount to conspiracy...

                        Heres is an example of what I mean by cheating using pre-draws: lets say for example that Sum 17 is really inflating past its statistical value and it happens to hit in the pre-draws and you not knowing it. This has the potential to throw your whole statistical data out of whack...

                        In reality the odds are stacked against you even in pick3 whether you know it or not ..

                            Nice analysis:
                             Pattern-hunting...Striking a balance between what happens more often then not and the focus on the extreme, rare and unusual,also timing and reduction of these findings sums up this prediction thing for me.

                            Heres is an example of what I mean by cheating using pre-draws: lets say for example that Sum 17 is really inflating past its statistical value and it happens to hit in the pre-draws and you not knowing it.

                            However.. thank God most Root sums/sums will repeat shortly.

                            There is no more fun system to play than your own

                              I can honestly say that I have broken down this game to its MAXIMUM. I proffess that no one here or anywhere in the world can give me info about the pick 3 that i dont already know. Your best bet is to study the game and NOT RELY on LUCK. i dont mean to sound arrogant but i put in the work to reap the rewards and now its your turn. I'm still figuring out ways to become better...I have many many ways to play the P3. I track every statistic possible. THERE IS NO SYSTEM THAT WILL GUARANTEE YOU A HIT. HOWEVER, im currently working on a way to sell my spreadsheet to everyone that seriously wants to win for about 30 bucks a pop. There is no gimmicks but once you get it you will be like WOW!!
