I've been doing somewhat well picking only high #'s (above 30).  Lots of $3, $4, $7, and $10 winners though, and nothing more lol but hey it's better than I was doing.

    Which game are you playing that has that many different payouts for lower tier prizes?  Or are those payouts for several different games?

          Oh yes, I forgot about the games that have nine ways to win.

            I have thought about doing that very thing. Usually though, if I do something like that, I will start with teens or maybe 20's for the first number because it is pretty rare for the first number to be a 30, and while any hit is nice, I'm really playing for jackpots.

                For this year, here are the winning numbers.

                The column on the farthest right is how many numbers hit that were either 1-29, or 30-59, the column next to that on the left were how many numbers were odd/even.   ie on 7/16/2011 0 were odd, all 5 were even (0/5), two were from 1-29, and three were from 30-59 (2/3)

                  JJ I'm going with you on the 7/20 draw for PB..    For our pool, picked 20 regular mixed series and then picked 5 draws all ending with triple 5x's   Starting in 2x and one 1x in first column

                  Cant say any facts for this other than triple 50's are out quite a few draws.. One thing to note, since the 2009 matrix 1-59 the 50's have the most occuring instance of trip's

                  I just have a feeling with you on this draw.. so that means it will not show for sure Crazy

                  good luck!!

                      So, you would play against those extreme odds?

                      I wouldn't.

                      Good luck to you.

                        How long has it been since your set of numbers won a big prize? Those "extreme" odds are about ten thousand times better than the odds of winning a $10,000 prize in MM or PB. They're about 3 million times better than the chance of winning a MM or PB jackpot.

                        When lotteries start handing out prizes for  picking a  number distribution that's similar to the winning numbers you'll be making a sensible decision in avoiding such distributions. As of now you only win for matching the numbers that are actually drawn, and your odds are exactly the same no matter what numbers you play.

                          Floyd my old pal.

                          I've won 4x5 twelve times, so I'm not doing THAT bad.

                          We have also discussed eliminating entire pools of numbers, such as ignoring 1-10, or ignoring 50-59, so whatever works for you my friend, I just tend to play the odds that are wide open for anyone to see.

                          Back to the topic:

                          First, you have to hope a game such as yours (all high numbers) plays, and then you have to pick the correct high numbers. I'm not saying it cannot be done - you will almost never hear me say nothing can be done in a random game, all I am saying is I play what the odds dictate I play. I do fine.

                            I'm gonna go against the experts and play a few really high lines tonight. And I'll be really high when I play em too.

                            Then if I win, I'm gonna have me a big ol' glass o' Jack.

                            And if I lose, I'm gonna have me a big ol' glass o' Jack.
