I have a great imagination and have thought of many systems of playing the lottery, but being that I am new at playing, I would like to know what method most people are using.

      I can spend $10 on any game but I wouldn't waste a dollar of it playing pick3, I prefer to dream bigger.

        When I play Pick 3 it usually is $1 and the few times I've hit have been from an astrology book or pure gut hunch on a number.....if those got hunches paid for being one digit off I'd hit a lot more often!

        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.

                  "CAREFULLY" - haha, yes I can relate.  I choose very carefully because it can be expensive.

                  I have my own system for Pick 3 I've developed over the years, which has gone through many changes.  Mostly, that meant dumping any method that's too complicated and time-consuming.  I am a true Numbers Nerd so I love making charts and looking for patterns, but it can go overboard.  er, I can go overboard, and I don't like that side of me that picks over details. 

                  One thing I do to stay 'fresh' is to just STOP PLAYING for awhile.  For weeks or months.  When I left my old system behind I stopped playing for several years.   

                  Also, I go back and forth between Pick 3 and the larger Pick 5 games.  The charts/methods I've developed for the large games have helped me 'SEE' the Pick 3 in new ways.  I'm learning to balance the Analytical side and the Intuitive side of playing. 

                  Pick 3 is my favorite game I refuse to play regularly.

                    50% QP and 50% self picks. The self picks are also randomly picked... I just feel better to see the numbers before buying them. While QP can offer some comedy relief from getting odd combination structure.

                            I play numbers from my own system and make an effort in the number selection. Don't like QP. Not that QPs

                            are intentionally rigged,

                            but knowing human nature, who would thoses machines favor??? Oogle.... the lottery owner's who are trying to

                            make as

                            much money from them as possible, or the lottery player who is trying to get as much money out of them? Idea   

                             

                            Besides. There are 1000's of thoses machines in each state, they probably cost about $25.00 each, and us

                            lottery players expect completely random choices out of them. Thud
