It seems sometimes the less time I spend thinking about it the better the outcome, and I am not talking Quick Piggies.

What?

Yes, avoid those Quick "Piggies", just ask these folks. Oh, wait.....

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.

        I'm a retired widower and senior citizen living alone in a small Texas city.

        Free time is one thing I have a lot of.

        A big chunk of my time is spent managing lottery statistics for Pick 3 (D&N), Cash 5,
        Lotto, PB, MM, Two-Step and Florida Fan 5, a recent addition.

        Playing the lottery is a hobby and a great source of entertainment.
        Keeps the mind active, too.

        I use paper and pencil workouts for all the games, except Daily 4, which has too
        many doubles. I'm playing one set twice a day. No statistics to maintain.

        The amount of time spent varies with each game. The most active period is immediately
        after the drawings, which are held at 10:12 p.m Central time.

        For example, last night (0918), I lost $6 in Pick 3. I played 4 mixed and 4 doubles.
        The winning combination was a double. I updated my files in less than 30 minutes.
        I'll pick new combinations for Monday while watching Dallas Cowboy football this afternoon.

        I played 5 sets in PB. Had 1 plus the PB. Invested $5 won $4. The files were updated.

        I had a 2of5 in Cash 5 for #2. I play 5 fixed sets using alphanumeric substitution. I
        update every 3 days.

        I recently added Flordia Fan 5. The charts were updated. I play 3 days a week. My next
        play is Monday. It will probably take me about an hour to prepare five sets. I'm using
        some new tracking charts and this will take more time than usual.

        In fact, the data for all of the Saturday game were updated before I went to bed
        at midnight - that's less than three hours.

        Making choices can be time consuming where the Jackpot games are concerned. There is
        a lot of data to consider. I recently spent 3 hours preparing predictions for
        the 0908 Texas Lotto game. It was my first attempt at 50 combinations. I won $3.
        Not sure I want to do that again.

        Players with families, intensive job situations probably don't have a lot of free time, but
        in my humble opinion, the chance to win millions is worth some time and effort.

        Great way to spend extra time!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Could be very retirement enhancing!!!!!

        Party

          I just walk in and do a QP.  Most of the lotteries seem to be won that way.
