I hate asking stupid questions but I'm fairly new to this site and have some lingering questions regarding predictions posted. 

I play Pick 3.  I've looked over the "Predictions" page, always clicking for "Idaho", and it seems that a lot of members posting predictions there are posting the same numbers for multiple states.  Now, since the winning numbers are almost always going to be different from one state to the next, day by day (or evening by evening), how much accuracy can be expected?

Just talking money here, really.  With each ticket costing $1, I can't afford to play all of my ideas, let alone all the numbers on the Predictions page.  Or even a fraction of all those different numbers posted.  I've even watched to see which members happen to nail the winning numbers for my state, from one day to the next, but there seems to be no consistency there..... which, if this is posting for "all states", would explain it, I suppose.

So I guess I'm asking, is the Predictions page a resource, a guide, for helping you decide what you'll put your money on?  Is it useful to you?

      For many predictors, the prediction board is an experiment.  Some actually test their systems or prediction skills for an individual states while other just throw stuff out there to see if any of it sticks.  How you use it is up to you.  Obviously some players post more stuff they they would ever play so for them it's just for fun.

      If you plan to use anyone's prediction, check their prediction statistics.  They are recalculated every day and usually those who just throw a lot of stuff out to see what sticks or post a lot of numbers for fun won't be among the top predictors which could help you decide if you really want to put any money on any of those predictions.

      Good luck.

        its a good question...actually i think most people use the predictions page incorrectly...by default all states comes up first so maybe that has something to do with it...but i dont understand betting on all states, using the rational that theoretically numbers travel from state to state...i hit my straight in pick three acutally by accident...because i just wanted to play NY...

        if you look at the cost of tickets played, then the predictions board becomes virtually useless. because nobody in their right mind spends 28,000 dollars in a year...to win 15,000, thats not how gambling works...

        if you dont predict as you would bet in real life than you are really wasting your time making predictions...you dont help yourself...and you dont help others...in all reality...the entire predictions stats should be scrapped and start over from scratch, with members posting less numbers and less states...so truer stats appear.

        as for RJoH...he has a very good prediction ratio lifetime and i admire that...and he doesn't play pick 3...he uses a super secret stealth formula based on random walk and multiple variable tracking...or maybe

        he just has a very expensive dart board with nanotechnology guidance!!!Jester Laugh

          Hey, thanks for the feedback, you guys.  There is still a lot I need to learn about this site as well as the prediction systems discussed here and there and offered as tools.  I've been working on my own systems for Pick 3 and Pick 5 for not-sure-how-many years, and I am always open to learning something new.  Tricks of the Trade, so to speak.

          So, this RJoH fellow.... super stealth method.... hmm... I'll have to keep an eye on him.... Cool

            Imagine that you play 1-2-3.
            You play it in 20 different states the same day.
            You have 20 chances to hit with the same numbers.
            That's all.

            Pick 3 offers you a 50% loss expectation.
            I guess that most players lose more than that.
            Good luck!

              Welcome to Lottery Post GG, I don't see a thread for Idaho in the pick 3 forum, maybe you could start one and many daily predictors can post numbers for just that state, I t would reduce the number of numbers you have to pile through.

              I would be happy to post for Idaho, good luck to you.

                When you say play in 20 different states the same day, how does one do that?  Online ticket sales......?  This is something I've been wondering about too.

                  Oh, hey - great idea, Sully!  Thanks!  I should do that.

                  Actually, I'm hoping I can win at least a hundred grand jackpot soon so I can stay home and fine tune my Pick 3 methods.  haha  Cos I love that game. 

                  By the way, I have seen your name on the Predictions page and have watched you pick the winner a couple of times.  Just in the time I've been watching.   :)

                    No secret stealth formula or expensive dart board with nanotechnology, just plain tracking and analyzing my games of choices and only posting predictions that I actually play.  Every bad prediction is a personal felt lost for me since I play them too.  I've made some changes in my prediction strategy that I hopes will gain me some bragging rights plus some money for my pockets.

                      @serge...if you play 123, you should play 321 because that "should", "will", "may hit first in pick 3"

                      if you play 3.50 per draw...(thats 7 different numbers) then hopefully you will hit box within 10 draws and recoup your losses a little...

                      20 different numbers is too much...

                      unless you have a $5000 bankroll to play with.

                        Hi ,your "Idaho Pick3" thread is indeed the only one dedicated to that state's lottery.

                        Keep posting on and even  explicitly write you're inviting anyone to post  numbers for Idaho ,that's a way to get in contact with other Idaho players and to have an useful sharings and tips,simply be patient...

                        Possibly after a while i myself will be able to contribute through indications based on position of digits ,a fertile research area which can give a huge help from time to time See Ya!Smiley

                        ...so I find my lottery earnings much useful......because spendable !!ROFL
