Here you go, pumpi. A lotto triathalon.
The prizes go up as you pick a tougher level of difficulty.
The beginning event, for a bronze medal, and $5,000,000 is you have to hit a Pick 3 straight, put the whol payoff on a Pick 4, hit that straight, and put the whole payoff on a Pick 5 (like a 5/39), and hit it.
For the silver, you have to start with the Pick 4, then a Pick 5, and then your state's Pick 6. This prize is 5 times the advertised jackpot for the Pick 6.
And now, for the Lotto Gold Medal, to be personally awarded by Pumpi, the player has to hit a Pick 6, Mega Millions, and Powerball in the same week. Anyone who did so would receive the long waited for Pumpi $1 billion jackpot!
Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.
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.
