I checked my 10 QP lines at USA MEGA and the most they've won in the past 13 years is

$150. (4 times) so I can feel very safe in saying that I have played these lines now:

FOR THE PAST 13 YEARS WITHOUT WINNING 1ST, 2ND, OR 3RD PRIZE

and these lines are "due" and I should keep playing them.........Bang Head

Im knocking on the door with my head...........................

Can the lottery please let me in..................

Its cold out here................

    I'm envious of your being cold Ronnie, it's 97 in the shade right now where I'm living. Send some of that cold up my way, would you please?   Mad

      Oh, did I not mention that I spend a lot of my time living in a "dream state"??

      We are looking at 112 here today and that is in the shade as well.

      People who get out of the shade around here have a tendency to

        No, I was already aware of your dream state.  Sleep

         

        112 is hot, but with your extremely dry heat in AZ, that probably feels more like 90, still chilly compared to our humid New England temp's.   Blush

          It is VERY nice. I try not to brag about it cuz I used to live in OH. So I (kinda) know what "cold country" is all about. Just glad I'm not there anymore.

            I played the 10 lines I posted on the prediction board last night and had "11" for one the bonus numbers so I'm getting back $2 of the $10 I spent.   I'll be spending it on Ohio Classic Lotto when I play the ten lines I just posted later today.

            Again I played the 10 lines I posted on the prediction board earlier today for OCL and matched 3of6 for $2.  I'll be spending it on some new lines for Friday's MM drawing, I never play lines more than once if I have time to pick new ones. 

            I may play 20 lines this time and just post the first 10 on the prediction board.

            Good luck on your picks.

              Anyone who wants to play.... "Do some number combinations have better odds?"

              Just post your 28 numbers plus 1 bonus ball and we will see what happens.

              Stated Lottery odds of getting 5 out of 5 are around 1 in 38 tries.

                    How many actual lines are you playing, though? I haven't even looked, but (28) numbers sounds odd with each line containing only (6) numbers including the PB.

                      Real simple LL,

                      A 28 number full wheel is 98,280 lines. You only get to play one bonus ball so we are playing primarily for 5 out of 5. The object is to beat the stated lottery odds and prove that :

                      some number combinations have better odds.

                      Few people expect us to hit 5 out of 5 in less than 38 draws (stated lottery odds) But I already hit 5 out of 5 in two draws, so we need to keep this going and prove that because of predicability we can get "better odds"

                        Okay, I see. This is very, very interesting to me.

                          I think its a cool,

                          There are no rules as too how many draws you keep your numbers in play. It can be 1 or 2 or until they hit, its up to you. I'm targeting all odd numbers to hit within 10 draws.

                          Once you post your numbers I will generate the lines and post a small sample.

                          Here is a sample from my "all odd" list

                          15 - 19 - 29 - 31 - 47 ** 8
                          15 - 19 - 29 - 31 - 49 ** 8
                          15 - 19 - 29 - 31 - 51 ** 8
                          15 - 19 - 29 - 31 - 53 ** 8
                          15 - 19 - 29 - 31 - 55 ** 8
                          15 - 19 - 29 - 33 - 35 ** 8
                          15 - 19 - 29 - 33 - 37 ** 8
                          15 - 19 - 29 - 33 - 39 ** 8
                          15 - 19 - 29 - 33 - 41 ** 8

                            In the last 8 MM drawings because some of the numbers hit multiple times, a group of 28 numbers produced 8 straight 5 + 0 hits. One of the numbers 2, 9, 40, and 53 were in every drawing. The probability is each number should be drawn once out of every 12 drawings but since 23 numbers weren't drawn in the last 10 drawings, at the least 13 numbers will not be drawn in a 12 drawing cycle. There were 34 different numbers drawn in the last 12 drawings. It's cause and effect because if some of the numbers are drawn multiple times in a 12 drawing cycle, other numbers can't be drawn. 

                            RJ probably gave you the easiest way to create a group of 28 numbers that should better the 2.6% probability.

                            Another distinct 28 number group was drawn on June 5 when all five numbers were high.

                            I think ronnie and stack have very good ideas on how to beat the odds...

                            but I would suppose that one of the most important features is that the 28 number group has to be distinct and well defined...not entirely 28 totally random numbers...

                            so suppose you have

                            1) odd

                            2)even

                            3)High

                            4)Low

                            5)MId

                            6) Particular Decades/Ten game group

                            a good question might be...how many distinct and well defined groups can be categorized and how well does the flag formation show for each one, if at all?

                              Awesome LL. Any group you think is "better" then a random group.

                              I hit the all even group believing they were "due" and now Im betting the all odd group.

                              If someone wants to submit a "random" group, that would be cool too.

                              People like Boney will argue that we are trying to predict future results based on past performance, but that is not necessarily the case.

                              Some of us believe that repetitions MUST occur because after all, 5 out of 5 combinations ARE LIMITED to less than 4 million.

                              I would think that a computer analysis of around 400 million "random" draws could be enough to produce some predictable repetitions.

                              In the mean time I think our intuitive ability will be enough to simulate winning a JP....   (that and Thriftys positive energy flow system).
