Hey guys,

I've mostly played quick picks for the various drawings (Lottery, Powerball, MegaMoney, Cash 3, and Play 4) and only purchased a few scratch offs.

I know nothing of Lottery Systems or Wheels.

I can't purchase 50 different Powerball tickets every drawing (that alone would cost me $100 a week)

Where do I begin?

What should I do first?

 

Any help would be greatly appreaciated...thanks in advance.

    Do a search above for systems or wheels, but keep in mind that most people who use them have budgets that allow for playing multiple sets of numbers.

Good, bad or otherwise. You'll maybe get lost in it, tied up in it a little bit, but if you work your way through that the real you shows up, I think. Maybe what's at your core deep down, maybe that comes out. Maybe that's what it's about." Mike Pace

      Determine your goals.  Do you need to win a couple of hundred regular, couple of thousand or millions?

      Determine your available time.  Do you have the time to consider this a part time job, hobby or have only minutes a day?  Don't think you'll put more time in as you start to win, doesn't work that way.

      Determine your budget.  The amount you can afford to lose on a regular basis without it becoming a problem.  Do not exceed this figure.

      Determine your determination.  How long are you willing to work on this without making a profit before giving up?

      Pick a game with the prize that will allow you to reach your goal, concentrate on the one game, read its forum, find out whether you can work out how to win.  Note: Most systems don't play at a profit, you have to know when to play.  Play on paper until you know the system has some winners, then work out how to seperate them from the chaff like panning for gold.  If you can't make it work, quit and find another hobby.

          The Pick 3 is probably the easiest place to start.  However, I've read on LP that Florida is a Hard State to Hit in, so you need to do a search in the "Lottery Systems" Forum for some Pick 3 Systems to Backtest in your state first.  You need to take the time to search back through the ENTIRE HISTORY of the "Lottery Systems" forum for Pick 3 Systems to try.  You have to put some Self Effort into the Research, before you just start randomly playing numbers. 

          I would focus on Systems by LottoLaughs, because ALL of her Sysems that she has ever posted online here Work in every State Nationwide, including Florida   Start with a Collection of her Systems.  She also sells some of her Systems on E-bay, under the E-bay ID of Lottolaffs, for a very low reasonable price, $5 - $7You must Invest a little to make a lot, and her Systems are well worth the Investment, whether FREE here on LP, or for a nominal amount on E-bay.  We should ALL SUPPORT LottoLaughs, because she is one of the most Lottery Brilliant Contributors whose Lottery Methodology has Enlightened Many Minds about the games of Pick 3, Pick 4, Pick 5, PB and MM.

          If you cannot Search back through the ENTIRE HISTORY in the FORUMS, You may need to upgrade your LP Membership to Platinum to take advantage of All of the Valuable Features here on Lottery Post. 

          Good Luck to you !!!

                Yep. Pretty good advise.

                I would like to add that QP's do not require any Senescent cognitive skills. Think about it, Or ,... don't.

                  What kinds of skills do you need to figure what you can afford to lose?

                    Sounds like you already did that when you bought a ticket.

                      That's a very good question, let me see if I can find a banker or a broaker to get an answer back to you.

                      okay. I got an answer from someone who trades and they say, 'it depends".

                      Sorry but that was the best I could get.
