Hi All- What do you think about the idea of harnessing the Wisdom of the Crowd (i.e. all the great folks at LP) to help pick the winning numbers for a game? The idea is to have everyone submit their picks and then we pick the numbers that the greatest number of people submit?

    Great but what would the guildlines be for how large of a number block that can be submitted?

      First of all, what game is this for? If it's for P-3 then I'd recommend no more than 1 combo per person. I only say this because there may be too many combos If everyone posts 20 combos for example. How about 5 combos each/

          DanMarsh,

          MADDOG10 runs MM and PB Challenges.

          Here's a sample from 9-6 for MM:

          http://www.lotterypost.com/thread/236268

          Your approach is a little curious though. Considering the number of people on this board, and lurkers, just how many ways do you think such a set of winning numbers would be split? Of course not everyone would play them, but probably enough to take such a jackpot way, way down once it's divvied up.

          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.

                A very interesting concept.  I am assuming by "greatest number of people" you mean the numbers with the highest frequency.

                May I suggest you compile all the submissions?  Aabout an hour before the draw, you could publish the numbers along with their frequency?  You could do this along the lines of Maddog's challenge.

                            Oh yeah....

                            just take the word "wisdom" with a grain of salt.

                            I really hope "the crowd" uses some wisdom next year.

                              I'm no detective but I've made a couple of observations here.

                              1. The Dragon Lady frowns on people conspiring on ways to defeat the lottery.

                              2. DanMarsh asked this question 5 days ago and hasn't been back since.

                              Coincidence?

                              You decide.
