Hi,

  Isn't amazing that there are so many LP members but no systematic team effort to win lotteries.

Everyone here is an untapped resource. Is it because we're all to greedy and want the wins all to ourselves? Is it because it's all our way or the highway for other systems? Is it just because nobody has found a way to pull us all together?

  What's your take on all of this?

    I think the team effort here is good. What would you like to see?

      Hi,

        What's your take on all of this?

      Just how big of a team effort do you think it would be, and what do you think would happen to a jackpot split that many ways?

      Even with Powerball and Mega Millions, consider what happens to a jackpot when a solo winner opts for cash, and then it's taxed.

      The current member ship here is 95,424. Granted most are lurkers, but if even 1/100th of the membership went dibs on a jackpot winner it would be just like that scene in Bruce Almighty when everyone who yhad prayed to hit the lottery did, for $17. 

      Scared

      Now consider that despite the statisistics, no one can get people to agree on what hits more often, what's the best game to play, etc....

      Any form of gambling is far better off as a solo endeavor.

      Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

      Lep

      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.

        Hi,

          I was thinking along the lines of ...lets call it a workshop....say Mega Millions.

          Maybe where people try to give thier best shot shot at getting one number correct and how they predicted it.

          Just how would this systematic team effort work?  Would it be a simulation of a lottery pool where all the picks would be posted on the prediction board and all the participants would share bragging rights if they had a big win?   Or, are you talking about a commitment in which real money would be used?

          Personally I find it enjoyable to read about other members ideas and simulate them on the prediction board, but when it comes to backing an idea with real money, I prefer it be my own.

            Getting one number right doesn't pay (or pays $2 or $3 for the MM or PB), thus doesn't pass the "so what" test.

              HI,

                I don't have all the answers. That's why I put it up for discussion rather than just trying to start it up.

                RJOh,

                   Maybe track it like what's happening with Maddogs challenge.  See who can get the most consistent results of getting one right.

               

                Coin Toss,

                   Imagine 5 players who consistently get one number right (different numbers and different systems).

                   There might be a good possibility of wins for all.

               

                 Again, I don't have all the answers. Any idea that would pool the resources of the members in a constructive seems like a positive thing to me.

                One ticket whether I pick or a quick pick has the same chance.... I normally play a quick pick especially when I travel to another state and do an advanced draw.

                  Same chance to do what?  That's a stock answer given by most every one because it been said so my times before they assume it wouldn't have been said unless it was correct.

                      Hi JKING,

                                  If someone would have a system to find ONE NUMBER RIGHT in the Mega Millions game that would left the total of combinations at a  maximum of 341 055 to deal with, meaning 3,478 761 would have been erase at one, not a bad thing !!! everything would depend on the position of that number which is very important for that kind a system.

                        Anyone has a system for that or ideas I'm open for it ?                                    Serge.

                        im thinking a large wheel that is usally to expensive for 1 person top play, people pick a section  of the wheel and play it others play other sections till the big, say guranteed 4 numbers  hit.  winner keeps his winnings but everyone could be happy in that they where part of the system.

                        2014 = -1016; 2015= -1409; 2016  = -1171; 2017 = ?  TOT =  -3596

                        keno historic = -2291 ; 2015= -603; 2016= -424; 2017 = ? TOT = - 3318
