    Iput $10.00 on 823 tonight.

    And, if it doesn't hit, I"ll put $10.00, for midday and evening for the next 5 days,  $1.00 str/box, midday and evening from Tuesday-Saturday.

     

    Good Luck.

    The Struggle is real!

      I like one play for 10 draws.

      I don't like to rush at anything.

      I like to take my sweet time.

      Then I catch my rest.

        I think of it as having 10 bucks to lose and I might play the 10 lines I posted on the prediction board for Ohio Classic Lotto tonight.  Its jackpot at $26.3M, not bad for a 6/49 game.

          Whether it's $1 for 10 draws or $10 for one draw it hinges on the results of the first draw. If it's not a winner and you spent the $10 on it you've already shot your wad and are out of action.

          If it's not a winner and you went $1 for 10 draws, then you are still "alive".

          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.

            It all depends. If you're playing all 10 in one draw, you may miss the possible opportunity for timing to come into the picture. I'm a firm believer in synchronicity.

            If I play one ticket a day for 10 separate draws, I may be allowing the universal timing to interact, allowing me to win. Whereas, playing 10 tickets in one draw could make miss that crucial window the universe planned for me at a later date, like during the 5th draw.

            On the other hand, if I play all 10 tickets on one draw, and it was my time to win, It won't matter if i play a thousand tickets or one, it was my time....

              Neither option fits what I'd do in reality but if I had to choose between the two I'd do 10 in a single draw.  Ten of the same set of numbers on ten separate betslips.

                    The probability isn't the same. If you buy all 10 chances for a single drawing you have a slightly better chance of winning than buying 1 chance for each of 10 drawings. OTOH, the latter offers you the chance of winning more than once.

                      hmm, interesting?

                      can you show me (us) your logic mathemagically?

                        It is all about time. You can buy 1000 Pick 3 Tickets for one draw or you can buy 1000 and play for 1000 draws (quite a long time). One of them your going to win. The other you have the chance of winning 1000 times....or never. lol. To increase odds you always bet more on a single game. Even though each ticket has the same single chance of winning (1:1000) your chances have increased because you hold more than one ticket. 

                         

                        I guess that was a logical deduction. I don't know how to write out a formula, but I'm sure it's a simple one.

                        How you do anything is how you do everything.
