I have noticed a lot of people are not posting picks anymore because they are afraid that if they post their numbers they wont be drawn. I would love to hear opinions on this matter especially from the veteran posters that hit regularly.


Here is my take.


I post numbers almost daily, sometimes I get hits sometimes I don't. Sometimes I play numbers that I don't post and once again sometimes I hit sometimes I don't.I was thinking about this last night.
The way I see it is like this. In the end the number that is going to be drawn MOST of the time , is going to be a combo that has the least payout. How?


First of all most state lotteries have a closed circuit computer network. They got 5 to 10 minutes to See which combinations have been drawn and the payouts, etc before they draw.This information they can get in less than 1 minute.


For Example - Today is Feb 14. There are going to be a million people playing the 214 today. Do you think the lottery officials and its staff does not know this? Pre-Draw time. Now there is always a possibility of that number being drawn but believe me they will do best they can to prevent this from happening.


Lets Take Pick 4 for instance - The Average Daily Payout per in Florida is lets Say from $100,000 to $200,000. Sometime more , Sometimes less and once in a Blue moon they will have a $1 million Dollar Payout.
So I go to the Local retailer and tell the person at the counter. Put $30 Bucks on the 0723. Just that combo alone has a Payout of $150,000. Plus I don't know how many other people are playing it. Chances are that combo will not be drawn that day. Now get the same scenario and put 50 cents and Voalaa it Hits and your like ???????


You see in the end it does not matter if you post your numbers or not. Its a Matter of how many other people are playing that same combo. Now if your a poster that gets constant Hits then people are going to play your numbers. Therefore increasing your chances of not getting a Hit because, its not only you playing it its also 1,000 other people that come to this forum just for that to pick winners.


Now with computerized drawing this process I believe is much simpler.

    The lottery has no control over the lottery balls in those machines when they are drawn.

    Computerized drawings have been debated wether they can control the outcome.

      I Agree with you. But Pre-draws and Tube rotations are a form of manipulation.If not they would not do it. For example if the 214 is Drawn in a pre-draw chances of it being drawn again during the official draw is much more slim.

      Thanks for your input.Smile

          Chalk it up to Superstition, and Add it to your long list of other Lottery Superstitions.

            I Agree with this short and simple answer.

            It comes down superstition. You already planted a seed that if you post it will not be drawn

            Therefore it does not matter if you post or not. If its gonna Hit its gonna Hit.

            But I still feel that there is some sort of manipulation with the drawings. I am not saying outright cheating, but I do consider tube rotations, ball set changes etcc a sort of manipulation. They wouldn't do it if it was in the players favor.

            Thanks Wink

                I stopped posting numbers because I do not want people to lose money due to the numbers I posted. If I have a good feeling about a number I will post it. Yesterday I posted 475 would repeat in the evening draw and it did. I don't know if any members played it.

                  we had a superstition thread awhile back, I post because it's fun, and in the pick 3 mich thread I play what I post. I don't think a michigan loterry official is looking at our numbers trying to decide whose turn it is to win, everyday someone wins and sometimes we have multiple winners. like I said it's fun.

                    The states know such things and have a limit on the payout for Pick 3 and 4. On certain days certina numbers get pounded, such as 776 or 1776 on July 4th. That's why sometimes if you try to play a number you get shut out.

                    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.

                      Posting your picks doesn't change the odds of them being drawn and if your picks are for one of the jackpot games then they aren't likely to come up regardless of what you do as can be verified by checking the top predictors statistics.

                            I never won anything more than 3/5 or 3/6 numbers. A few days after I started posting my picks online on LP, I hit 4/5 on a Cash 5 for a $200 win, which was the best lotto win I ever had. Needless to say, I continue to post picks. Posting them or not posting them doesn't affect the draws.

                            I've heard some pretty ridiculous things said about posting picks, I thought I saw on LP a post where someone questioned whether people at the lottery commisions look at the predictions here, as if they were going to go through hundreds of combinations to make sure those numbers don't get drawn.

                            Yeah right, I can see the people at the commissions spending hours every day or night picking through the Lottery Post predictions page:

                            'Hey Joe, here's one for 5-12-13-29-33-36.'

                            'Got it Bob, we won't be drawing that one tonite. What's the next number?'

                              I read that buying lottery tickets was a waste of money but the writer was going by the facts that less than 3% of the possible combinations will pay anything for any particular drawing, so that's true most times.
