Ronnie316,

Since I don't remember you stating just HOW you decide which 20 numbers are not expected to be drawn, I must ask these 2 questions:

1) If one or more of your 25 selections above turn out to be big winners tonight, what will be your conclusion?

2) Will your conclusion have any impact on the work of Pascal or Fermat?

Are you asking me to post a photo of my balls?

    1) I was really stupid for not spending $50. on my picks.

    2) It depends on what their balls look like.

      LOL. Thanks for asking RJOh, all the wheel tickets are real of a certainty.

      Im trying to get discussion started about the regulars that I always play. ( I have 2 lines)

      The wheels I play on and off, so when I dont post a photo its likely Im NOT playing a wheel on those draws.

      When you asked if you were the only one spending $5 on every PB and MM drawings, it kinda threw me.  You're obviously spending more than $120 a month playing these games.  I know I've already spent $200+ this year playing but I also play Ohio's Classic Lotto and Ohio's Rolling Cash5 but I don't play any of these games regularly but I do play one or more of the four twice a week ore more.  Tonight I'll probably play OCL.

       * you don't need to buy more tickets, just buy a winning ticket *

        Thanks for the news letter. I will avoid the lottery nonsense. I will buy a lottery ticket today.

        That 2004 article really changed the minds of at least two would be lottery players. Seven years later that same "mathematical lottery genius" didn't know what a hit/skip chart was so he couldn't figure out the probabilities. After an explanation, instead of giving any useful ideas, he chose to give his usual opinion on why playing lottery games is a bad bet.

        Last night someone won $89 million on probably less than a $10 bet. All the odds and probabilities against winning a huge jackpot are useless information because somebody can win millions for a few bucks. I suppose his mathematical genius doesn't allow much room in his brain for the simple common sense lottery players don't care about the odds, probabilities, and percentages.

        In his book he remarked about Nevada players standing in line to play California Super Lotto Plus, but never made the connection. While he was writing his opinion of "lottery nonsense", other professors emeritus from other Universities were designing wheels for Gail Howard.

          " even boney never buys ANY tickets per draw til it over 500 million and he doesn't share with anyone using his EV method that doesn't even apply to lotteries, but he applies it anyway."

           

          Hey buddy, quit putting words in my mouth, making up BS about how I play and being obsessed with badgering me.

           

          If you think that "EV" doesn't apply to lottery, you are laughably insane.  Although, I suppose illogical dribel is what I've come to expect from you.  And it's not like you even understand what EV means (which, btw, is ridiculously simple.)

            Stack47,

            Does your logic tell you that when a "professor emeritus" designs a "wheel" for a snake oil salesperson, we should assume that professor believes that users of the wheel will enjoy higher returns on their investment in lottery play?

            Have you ever considered blanketing Vegas with your resume?  Since you seem to think your understanding of gaming is superior to Don Catlin's, a well worded cover letter might land you a few lucrative consulting contracts. 

            You people never cease to amaze me with the depths to which you will sink to keep false hopes alive with your laughable attempts at obfuscation.

                  Ronnie316,

                  OK, the results are in but you chose to point to your list of 39 numbers rather than the 25 selections you made.  Which of the 25 intersected best with the winning draw?

                  03  22  26  41  49   (18)

                  Do you know how many combinations there are of 39 numbers taken 5 at a time and how many tickets you would have had to buy to ensure a 4/5 hit?

                  I think Pascal and Fermat are still resting peacefully in their graves.

                    Why do you ask questions that assume the position Jimmy, of me being real stupid. WAIT..... before you answer that, let me answer it for you. Its because you live inside a shell where your personal point of view is superior to that of lower life forms. (such as lottery players, for example)
