Mrs. McNutt?

Well, she's got ten foot pole marks all over her body and she's so buck toothed she could eat corn through a picket fence.

Mr McNutt says she's cold too. Says everytime she pulls her drawers off the furnace kicks on.

I think she's right up yer alley.

Sounds yummy to tiggs..Send her pic.....

    Luck Favors the Prepared Mind.

    Prepared Mind=Education Plus Experience!

    Not always. In millions of instances, luck is luck and that is that. Take someone who is going to go to a casino and studies up on a game. They get to the table and get slaughtered while someone who doesn't have a clue walks away with a score.

    A 36 year old good looking blonde was at a roulette table. A hi-roller present was on a winning streak and gave her two $100 chips and said "bet your age". She put the chips on 26 and passed out when the ball landed on 36.

    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.

      Statement: "Being in the right place at the right time requires Luck and/or Intelligence."

      We are told that Alexander Graham Bell invented the Telephone, or Galileo invented the Telescope, or Thomas Edison invented the Light Bulb.

      The fact is that they didn’t!

      They just happened to be in the Right place at the Right Time due to their Luck and/or Intelligence.

       

      Question: Do you always have to be Lucky to be in the right place at the right time?

       

      Question: Or could Intelligence provide you with perception which would in turn help you pinpoint the right Time & Place and therefore increase your chances of being there?

       

      Statement: "As far as the Lotteries, it’s very difficult (and some say impossible) to pinpoint the right time for the right Numbers;therefore Luck plays a major role and Intelligence has little chance in determining the Winning combination of numbers."

      You select a group of numbers and based on your analysis, you believe that this combination should be drawn in the future.

      But since the numbers are drawn randomly (more or less), your numbers don’t Have to be drawn! at least not at the time and in the order that you have selected.

      This fact significantly increases the Luck factor and almost diminishes the Intelligence factor.

       

      Question: Do you believe that no matter how Intelligent you are, you still need to be Lucky to win at the Lotteries?

      As Coin Toss pointed out,

      “There are over 100,000 members on this board now, systems galore, theories galore, and who knows how many tickets played per drawing.

      And the jackpots hit?”

        I believe in luck.

        I also believe that random numbers can develop patterns which if carefully studied, noted and strategically applied, can enhance your luck to a degree.

        Is pumpi one of yours??....

          Bee that as it may, the day I start bowing down at the Alter of "Luck"  that is the day I stop playing this game- 

          I have Played Pick-3 and Pick-4 long enough to know that most of my wins had nothing to do with "Luck"  and a lot to do with how well I was taught by my mother and Grandmother in what to look for and how to be a keen observer of the digits and it's Patterns..

          ...been a good observer of my workout sheet...Learning more from other here at the Lottery Post.

          I have been a good student and thus made some pretty good wins from what I learned from all of them!!!! 

          Just trapping the digits..watching others Win!!! Celebrating with them have been a great sourse of enjoyment and fun for me...leaving "Luck" completely out of it, is what has made it great fun for me!!

          forget what "they" say about youWhat you say about you?...

          Now, does it count??

                Lotto winners have stories to tell, when we listen to what they say;we agree that maybe it was their good FATE reward.I have played many years and never had 5 of 6# or 5 numbers in a 5number game. 30 years later I still play to win and I will have my good Fate story to tell. I also wonder if one has to be prepared to win big money at one time; I can recall instances where the winner ends up being a victim of misfortune,so you wonder did that person really win.
                I some time question if I am ready for many millions at once.
                      I have a ideal when the lottery gets to be more than 50 million how about drawing two jack-pot (only)sets of numbers
                50million jackpot plus rundown 5/4/ 3
                over 50 less than 75million have aset of numbers draw for 20 million jackpot(only)
                every 25 million over 50, draw an extra 20million winner

                on a 100million jackpot you could have 3winners   with another 10million to lottery and state.
                1/2/3/4/5/6/win 50 mil plus 5 -4 -3# winners
                3/4/5/6/7/8 win 20mil
                6/7/8/9/0/11 win 20

                  ...I Agree!  and is all that needs to be said really on this matter.

                  Just because patterns can be seen doesn't mean the ping pong balls are biased or that the person is insinuating they have the ark of the covenant.There is a force much bigger than us all that you can't put a name to or a definition with.But from time to time, if you look hard enough,time tends to trip over itself...ALOT  and in more ways than 1

                  There are millions of untapped approaches to this game but I still think we are all thinking too hard

                    I've been playing Keno for about 3 years now

                    Just a dollar a Day is how much I've spent (usually)

                    and I usually play one combination of hand-picked numbers (usually spot 5)

                    I have had 23 wins so far..mostly small ones. and numerous hits that didn't result in a payout..

                    I must say that I enjoy sniping numbers with only one shot! and I do believe that my wins were the result of Intelligence at work.

                    I wonder how many people out there are able to (or have) repeat my results or get better results playing Keno , Spending a Dollar a Day and getting 23 wins in 3 years

                    But there's always the argument that "I'm just Lucky"!

                    Let's say I'm Lucky to know how to pick Numbers Wink

                      Let's hope that 23 wins was a good payoff cause a dollar a day for 3 years is over 1000.00..Good LUCK the rest of the year because that's what it is is luck..

                        I believe everything that exists is the direct result of prior intelligence (a mind behind the creation).

                         

                        On one side, we have the balls, the machine, the numbers on the balls, the person spinning the wheel, etc.

                         

                        All are the result of prior intelligence.

                         

                        On the other side, we have the lottery slip, the person (mind) filling in the bubbles, the ticket itself, the money for the ticket, etc.

                         

                        Again, all are the result of prior intelligence.

                         

                        Somewhere in between are the winning numbers.

                         

                        The challenge is examing the exact point where both intelligences collide (the winning numbers) and figuring out how to apply our intelligence to get there.

                         

                        I know this sounds weird but it's easier to think it than to explain it.

                        BE JOYFUL ALWAYS, PRAY CONTINUALLY, AND GIVE THANKS IN ALL CIRCUMSTANCES.

                            Let's hope that 23 wins was a good payoff cause a dollar a day for 3 years is over 1000.00..Good LUCK the rest of the year because that's what it is is luck..

                            No, my Keno winnings add up to about $800 . So I'm still in the red.

                            But the reason why I've been doing this is developing a working method.

                            It's a work in progress.

                            Many of us on this board, consider this a study and a learning process.

                            and I don't think that there is a method or system that works all the time.

                            It's like trying to learn a Dance that changes every minute. sometimes you get it right and sometimes you don't!

                            And yes Luck is a major factor here and I can always use more Luck

                            Good Luck to you too!

                              Sounds yummy to tiggs..Send her pic.....

                              Her picture don't do her justice tiggs but then a face like hers don't need justice, it needs mercy.

                              When she smiles it kinda puts me in mind of the great outdoors and falling leaves cuz her teeth look like a rake.

                              She's a little on the plump side too, tiggs. People round here say she's so fat it takes three dogs to bark at her.

                              So keep that in mind.
