06/05 Results: 21, 26, 28, 30, 33 (Drawn as 30, 26, 33, 21, 28)

Nasty looking sequence of numbers with no singles or teens. The range for all numvers was 12 which seems awfully low. If anyone hits, I would imagine it is off a QP.

216,

That range looks low to me too, but I dont know what a "typical" range would be/is.

Looking at my spreadsheet, with the lowest number in the singles, and the highest in the thirties (which is what is drawn a large percentage of the time) it would appear that a typical range would be in the high twenties. 

Any idea of what the "average" range is over a long set of drawings?

    Nice wins Aeolus. No, I do not GiveFive as I just assumed that the range was way too small. I am shocked that someone won by picking those numbers.

      I splurged on lottery tickets today.  I bought the Take5 promo and bought some Sweet Million lines too.

      The three free lines for the Take5 promo look plain ugly to me, but what the hey, they were free.

      Walking out of the store, I saw a Take5 ticket lying on he ground.  I picked it up and saw that it was for last night's drawing.  It was a one line loser.  But as I looked at the numbers, I noticed they werent a QP, and the ticket was nicely balanced, and it looked like a line I'd play.

      That made me realize that there are probably more players out there that do know what they're doing than I think there are.  I was of the opinion that most players dont pick "smartly" because the people I know (that play regularly) buy a set of their favorite "lucky" numbers, or just go for the QP.

      I like to think I play "smartly", but then I've never even had a four number hit.  Since April of 2009 I've hit three numbers over twenty times, but never four numbers.  I so I guess I should get down off my high horse and lower my opinion of myself with regard to picking Take5 numbers "smartly".

      It aint easy to win a Take5 JP.  And it aint easy to win a JP for any other online game either.  I like Take5 and Sweet Million because in comparison to Lotto, Mega Millions and PowerBall,  players have a better shot at a JP. But it's still tough to win one.  They say patience is the key, so I'll just keep pluggin away at it, but I sure wouldnt mind a nice four bagger to pump up my enthusiasm.......

        I have 30 bucks of QP for tonight also plus free plays, but I'm sure my luck will run out pretty soon and once that happens

        I won't be playing that much.  The only promotions I really like for the Take 5 was when they did the Cinco de Mayo thing

        in which they had an extra ball and extra prize levels but that was YEARS ago.  Can't imagine they will be doing that anytime

        soon again, but if they do I will go all out again.

          I guess I am in that group of picking my favorite numbers and also I mix the FP and QPs with my own numbers and cross my fingers to see what happens.  I also play the same 3 numbers (my 3 key numbers) on multiple lines and pick cold or hot numbers for the other 2 spots. 

          I tried multiple strats even looking back in the history of Take 5 and trying to see patterns.  It is crazy but I did get 4 numbers when I play my own numbers about 4 weeks ago, they were combos of my job extensions (go figure).  Last night's drawing just amazed me the lowest number 21 and the highest 33, WTH, my next strat is taking a blank Take 5 ticket and a pen turning out all of the lights and mark away.  Who knows I might win, LOL.  Also Aeolus $30 QP strat with the promo sounds good, but will try that on Fridays and/or Saturdays since the JPs are higher.

                  I'm in the same boat as you Kap. I hit a FP off one of the promo-QP lines I got.  (And it was the ugliest line of all my promo lines! Go figure!)

                  I played back to back drawings on my tickets, so I'm in tonite for the same set of numbers I had last nite. I dont know if I'm gonna do the multiple drawing thing again.  I had a lot of lines with one number. That means in order for a line with one of last nites numbers on it to be a winner tonite, some of last nites numbers have to repeat, or even triple. (The seven has to triple because it was a repeater last nite.) I dont see that happening.  Playing multiple drawings is OK, provided you dont get a lot of one hit lines, which is exactly what happened to me last nite.

                  I know Take5 see's a lot of repeat hits, and a few triple up's here and there, but I think I'd be better off picking a whole new set of numbers for tonite.

                  Sorry your luck ran out Aeolus.  Keep pluggin, you gonna win it.  We all are.

                    Rex,

                    I've done the "where the dart landed thing" myself.  Only I didnt use a dart, it was a pencil. 

                    The patterns are there in the history, I can plainly see 'em on my color-coded spreadsheet.  The problem is, I cant ever tell when they will come out, and of course, when they do come out, they come out with different numbers than I pick.

                    You got a job extention?  Hell, they're so cheap where I work, ya gotta use your cell phone! I dont use my  cell that much cause I dont have to.  The work is very e-mail oriented, and most of those e-mails come in from Brazil, Russia, India or China.  Ya cant understand a word those dudes are sayin', so there aint no point in talkin' on the phone to 'em anyway!  I hear they live like Kings over there makin' 2 bucks an hour.  Aint technology grand?

                      I like what Rex is talking about with buying more on FRI & SAT for bigger returns.  Oh and talk about UGLY QP's here is ONE of the promo lines for me tonight
