Nice job RJ.   Party

 

Can't retire just yet, Wednesday night........?????????

I don't know, I may play MM instead because I only have to think half as much about the numbers I pick because I get twice as many for the same price.

      The set of 37 numbers I'm using to pick 10 lines for PB tonight:

      07 10 23 42 02 05 25 26 29 35 36 59 17 55 28 13 39 41 03 24 56 44 04 19 51 11 21 22 47 27 46 38 09 32 37 52 12

      and the 10 PB numbers:

      01 10 23 28 29 35 08 12 13 19

      Nice hit  RJOh, I had 5 of 5 in my set of 39 for the second time in 4 draws. I forgot all about my 2 if 5 of 39 wheel concept so I didn't get the numbers into live play...... maybe next time What?

        If enough members could come to your aid, their combined five star ratings would effectively "dilute" that one star rating, back to a five star rating.

        I would estimate approx. 25 members would be sufficient to restore your perfect untarnished rating.

         

        Remember Littleoldlady's campaign to get more votes a few months back? You need a a similar type campaign.

         

        Are you up to the challenge grasshopper?  Roll Eyes

        Its working mcginnin56, the rating has climbing to 4.6 thanks to the kind people who have added votes.

        A big thank you to everyone who clicks on 5 StarStarStarStarStars. 

        Kindness makes LP a BETTER place.

              The "52" was left out by mistake.......  so the "21" is NOT part of the group of 28.....

                  No worry,

                  I don't sweat missing PB too much because even though my odds are 10 times BETTER than a QP,

                  (when my group of 39 holds the 5 winners) the odds of the 2 if 5 of 39 wheel are still somewhat

                  astronomical at 25 chances in 575,757. And the cost for those 25 chances is $50.

                    Just so everyone knows...... I arrived at the group of 39 PB numbers by selecting 20 random numbers and removing them from the pool of 59 numbers........  No rocket science here... lol. lol. lol.

                    I'm doing the same thing with MM, removing 18 random numbers instead of 20. Still no rocket science.

                    The final group of 28, 20, 12, or even less numbers is arrived at by taking the recently drawn numbers and removing the random (elimination) numbers from that pool.

                    Hope this helps..........

                      Wheeling can get a bit expensive, that's the reason I prefer to pick a few lines using the most popular combination mixes of previous winners.  That strategy seems to get about the same results as wheeling but at a lower cost.

                          On this MM draw Im taking the most recently drawn 18 numbers and and eliminating 7 for a group of 11.

                          (only 7 of the 18 randomly drawn elimination numbers matched, leaving me a group of 11) 

                          This is simple enough that I can repeat it over and over on every draw. 

                          The goal is to hit 5 of 5 with a group of 12 numbers of less.

                          A 4 if 4 of 11 is 66 lines and a 4 if 4 of 12 is 113.

                          Can we all just get alone? lol....

                              On this MM draw Im taking the most recently drawn 18 numbers and and eliminating 7 for a group of 11.

                              (only 7 of the 18 randomly drawn elimination numbers matched, leaving me a group of 11) 

                              This is simple enough that I can repeat it over and over on every draw. 

                              The goal is to hit 5 of 5 with a group of 12 numbers of less.

                              A 4 if 4 of 11 is 66 lines and a 4 if 4 of 12 is 113.

                              Can we all just get alone? lol....

                              If you ever had all 5 winning numbers in a group of 12, it would be hard not to match at least 4 of them by just picking 10 lines randomly using those 12 numbers.
