Im not surprised that you wont compete against a wheel, I dont blame you. mcginnin56 perhaps What?

I'm willing to put my 20 lines up against your wheel.   I don't blame you for not wanting to put your 113 lines up against 20 because if neither group won any thing I would be up by $93.

      I'll take on all your wheels at once. With a blindfold on, with both hands tied behind my back, giving you a two day head start.  Thumbs Up

        Being different doesn't make it flawed.  Besides when I'm playing the lottery, the only logic that count in mine.  How you play is your business.

          Perhaps 113 QPs will suit your fancy?? 

          We both start with 12 numbers that hold the 5 winners....... 

          Choose 113 lines any way you like......

          I will be using a 4 if 4 of 12 LP wheel.

            No offence  RJOh, I'm just looking for ways to get BETTER ODDS and I'm not limiting my search to 20 lines.

              Its a given that I'm not likely to win MM or PB with a 4 if 4 of 12. But it may prove useful for KY Cash Ball.

                I understand, before I retired some of my co-worker wanted me to expand and come up with a system using 500 lines.  They even fronted the money when Ohio Super Lotto had a large jackpot.  I tried and failed and making out all those play slips wasn't easy either.  After that I never had any desire to play more than 20-30 lines. I just can't see any value in playing more lines unless you're trying to cover all the bonus numbers.

                  The smallest wheel that makes sense for a smaller games is the 4 if 4 of 12 so I want to give it a spin....

                    When picking and playing only 20 lines the payoffs become a problem because you probably won't have multiple winners. If you get two three number matches, you still won't cover the cost of play and it gets worse playing PB. The smaller secondary odds to payoff ratio are terrible in either game.

                      What are you going to take them on with, talk?  I think Ronnie read enough talk, he's looking for some one to put a 100-200 lines wheel out there that wins.

                        Exactly, with the $50. I play on PB I could get 100 lines on my local 5/41 game.....

                          I was in the gas station today and caught myself heading over to the P.E.F. siphoning device to get some MM QPs and said to self..... "Why do such a stupid thing?"  "You know self, you can eliminate 17 MM numbers and play from a pool of 39".........  "Giving  yourself BETTER ODDS of 1 in 575,000"

                              I will continue my usual wagering style.

                              I have no interest in dropping hundreds of dollars per draw.

                              Although more difficult, it is not impossible for my lines to beat your wheeled lines.
