    Refine your art. Play without buying. When your system works for sure, time tested, then start playing for real. Accumulate soem budget first. Start with Pick 3, or Cash 3, easiest odds.

          There are lots of pick 3 winners around it just when they spend more than they win they are called losers.

           * you don't need to buy more tickets, just buy a winning ticket *

            I created a filter for the lotto that at the moment doubles your odds of winning the jackpot nineteen times of twenty. If I played it, that probably wouldn't pay the bet due to the payouts. Anyway, betting nearly four millions is not an option to take. I filtered pick 3 and could also only improve the odds by half at the moment. That is not enough. Eventually you need a bit of luck too.

                   Hmmm.......  "Improve the odds by half at the moment."

                   

                                                        What sort of filter SergeM  .....?  No static filter can do this.

                   

                   

                  The only real failure .....is the failure to try.                               

                                                Luck is a very rare thing....... Odds not so much. 

                                                Odds never change .....but probability does. 

                                                                                                         Win d

                        How much can you expect to win if you buy up every possible combination of lottery numbers?

                        The UK National Lottery recently increased its ticket price to £2. With 49 numbers to choose from, though, your chances of winning are tiny (1 in 13,983,816 to be exact). Unless, that is, you buy up every single possible combination of numbers. This is exactly what Stefan Mandel, a Romanian mathematician, did in 1992 when he netted US$28m in the Virginia State Lottery.

                        So how much can you expect to win if you buy up all possible National Lottery tickets? Well, you will get the jackpot (although you might have to share it). Plus you will receive about £50k for matching 5 numbers plus the bonus ball. There are 6 different ways you could do this, and you will have bought all of them, so that is £300k. You will also have lots of tickets that match 3, 4 or 5 numbers, which will win you £25, £100 and £1000 respectively. Subtracting the amount you'll have spent on tickets, this works out as:

                        Profit = Jackpot + (£50,000 x 6 + £1,000 x 252 + £100 x 13,545 + £25 x 246,820) – (13,983,816 x £2)

                        Profit = Jackpot + £8m - £28m

                              I would like to believe math has a lot to capturing wins at all levels. However, since many of the states converted their drawings from mechanical to RNG ( random number generator) computer, I want to say that unless you are in that very small circle of people who conduct the drawings much of the math is similar to luck. Extremely high odds against the player in lotto games.

                              Missouri Lotto - Draw Method:Computer Random Number Generator (RNG)

                              Game = 6 out of  44

                              odds 6 of 44 = 1 in 7,059,052

                              odds 5 of 44 = 1 in 1,086,008

                              odds 4 of 44 = 1 in 135,751

                              Date Range 01/03/2009 - 11/27/2013; number of games played 512 games.

                              Fact - In the date range shown above - 281 games of the 512 have had 4 of 6 of the same numbers hitting more than once or 54.88% of the Total Drawings.

                              Don't believe me - Go To MY File --  https://app.box.com/s/cje5ah2gldsaccok46gi  - There are 14 pages to this file on box.com Go to bottom of page to view.

                              I put the 281 games into 104 Groups.  Here is my Group(GRP) 20 listed Below.  Here you have 5 of 6 (02, 08, 14, 21, 32) matched 2x in the 512 drawings to date in the time frame listed above.  Also (02, 07, 14, 21, 32).

                              I just want to point out that there is a big difference betweed odds in winning vs. chances in winning.  If you think the above was just a Fluk, think again.

                              Here is my Group(GRP) 65 listed below.  Here you have 5 of 6 again (10, 12, 16, 33, 44) matched 2x in the 512 drawings to date in the time frame listed above.
