How can you tell if your theory works or not if your methods aren't consistence?

I did post earlier that I was working on a consistent method for that very reason...

Problems do present themselves almost every draw.....

Is there a specific question??

When Ronnie316 hits the Jackpot this evening, then his theories and methods will be proven correct.

So true  mcginnin56,

You would think hitting 5 of 5 so many times would count for something?????

I was hoping you would hit it this time with your live tickets. 5 of 5, or 5+1.....whatever suits your fancy.

I'm hoping he does too since I'm not playing.  I'm putting all my effort and money on PowerBall tomorrow.

While that happened in MM 5/56 matrix for the last 757 drawings the same can't be said about PB 5/59 matrix for its last 388 drawings so that figure may be unique for only that period of time for MM only.

The question is "Has anyone ever used that slight advantage to win big?".  With PB getting at \$200M+, I'm looking for something similar about it.

"The question is "Has anyone ever used that slight advantage to win big? "

The Aussie syndicate that bought the Virgina Lotto jackpot only had time enough to purchase less than 75% of the necessary combos, but the rules were still changed preventing any future groups from trying the same thing. This "slight advantage" (3.5%) requires 4.5 million combos and accurately filling out over 904,000 playslips and we've already reached the conclusion playing 5000 combos on 1000 playslips would be very difficult at best.

Since their still is an advantage, the best choice is to play as many of the 98,280 combos a player or a group could reasonably play to get a 1 in 46 chance of winning the jackpot. By trying to benefit by the slight advantage and playing 41 combos, Ronnie has a 40 times better chance of winning a than a \$41 QP player has.

Ronnie has a 40 times better chance of winning a than a \$41 QP player has.

That can be tested by picking a \$41 QP file and comparing the results of the two files.

There is nothing similar about PB. The cost is twice the price and the odds are 1 in 5 million instead of 1 in 3.8 million..... It wont surprise me when the JP gets to a \$1 billion dollars and I may not even buy a ticket.....
