How many hours do you put into picking your numbers?

 Hours??? You mean DAYS dont you? [ 7 ] [8.75%] Minutes NOT hours dude! [ 27 ] [33.75%] More than an hour [ 10 ] [12.50%] More than two hours [ 7 ] [8.75%] Several hours of most days [ 14 ] [17.50%] Picking the numbers is my every day life man! [ 10 ] [12.50%] I can't admit how many I'm too embarrased [ 5 ] [6.25%] Total Valid Votes [ 80 ] Discarded Votes [ 5 ]

So much for "systems"

The system was only following my instructions to reject any combination with a string of 3 or more sequential numbers.  I looked at the file of 420 combinations from which I picked 20 to play and there was a match4 in it but that has only happened in 2% of the 719 drawings since the last matrix change so I'm hesitant to change my instructions, besides had I eyeballed that combination I would have rejected it too.

The good news is there was a couple of winning combinations in the mix to pick, they just weren't within the parameters of what I was accepting.

4 hours...to find the winners...

i do 2 hours...then take a twenty minute tv break...

then two hours more...

this varies day by day based on how i feel...

some days i have looked at the charts for ten hours at a time usually to no avail.

but now that i cracked the Α and ω and and ƒ and Δ code...→  ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦

i can pick a winner in five minutes.

Well, how about taking ten minutes then and giving me a winner for MegaMillions Tuesday and Powerball Wednesday?

Much obliged.

Don't be greedy. I can't play Mega Millions in the New South so pass on the winning Powerball Combination for tomorrow night as soon as you are in receipt.

Thanks!

well i have not looked at the mega millions too much since last draw...but you should play mega ball 36...it may be cycling soon...

i would stay with the low number trend...i can pick a winner in five minutes...but sometimes it may take a couple of draws before it hits...

the large matrix makes the system more difficult...it works more on point for a 5/39 game than a 5/56 game...i dont play powerball anymore.

watch cajuns sets...if i post some sets compare them to cajuns...maybe you will see something...

i dont know if i will post for tonite...not really feeling motivated...maybe for friday...

I spend maybe 20 minutes, on up to a couple of hours per game, after each drawing.

Today I'm going to spend HOURS of gut wrenching agony spent in determination that I will play the same exact numbers that I always play for tonight's draw.

Sadly, I will also be sharing your same agony and determination.       My only other hopes are my QP's.

I think that playing the same numbers every time is total bullsnip!

The people that have played their regular numbers patiently, and have won jackpots might disagree with that bullsnip.

That's why many of us here at LP do both self-picks and QP'S.
