Odds, what nots, dead ends, circular arguments, waste of time.

When I became an LP member 10 years ago,  I admit I didn't know much about lotteries and how
to choose winning numbers, or any numbers for that matter.

At the time, it seemed that everyday posters were serious players looking for an edge. Sure, there were some disagreements but there was a lot of sharing. One could ask for assistance and someone would step up and offer rationale ideas and solutions.

Then, as now, it was rather obvious that some visitors had ulterior motives. If they were not here looking for handouts or to steal, they took advantage of every opportunity to forment  discord.

But, there were many contributors  - folks who could define their methods, techniques, strategies, workouts in ways that were helpful.

I learned a lot. I really appreciate the help, guidance and support I've received.
I advanced from a player who didn't know crap to one that understands how the games are played. While I have spent  hours going down dead-end streets, it has been a learning experience that every serious player will go through at one time or another.

I've posted a lot of stuff over the years. Some good, some bad. In fact, if I had the power, I'd go back and delete some ideas that seemed worthwhile at the time but were really a waste of time - and money.

However, I have finally reached the end of the line, so to speak.
I've developed a workout that incorporates, to one extent or another, all the stuff I've learned or discovered on my own. There are no more versions possible. It's sink or swim. I hope I'm able to avoid drowning in future.

I've not won a jackpot, but  I've had some significant wins, given my income and ability to pay.
While my methods may not be completely understandable, they satisfy my needs. I win often enough to make all the work worthwhile, which is  about the best any player can hope to achieve.

I've posted my methods here at LP. But, they are not freebies. They require the user to apply as much 'brain power'  as he or she can muster.

'No work, no pay!'

Other members have posted their particular methods. They no doubt believe what they do, what they recommend, are the Holy Grails of lottery play.

But, in the final analysis, it's a 'to each his own' situation.

I've followed this thread on a regular basis.
It's interesting how recent comments and views match some of those that were  posted 10 years ago!

The same old 'circular' arguments, with no solutions on the horizon.
Sadly, it's a 'my way or the highway' situation.

And, as a result, a lot of experienced and helpful folks just don't come here anymore.
Take away the specific game postings and the predictions, there aren't many useful and enlightning discussions going on.

What a shame.

Despite the discord, I've learned a few things over the years.
First and foremost is the fact that the manner in which winning lottery combinations are generated is and will always be a 'random' process.
A hundred years of effort by thousands of participants from all walks of life has failed to produce a single workout that can accurately predict the next winning combination.

The chances of winning a game is and always will be a formidable task the difficulty of which varies according to the specific game. The larger the game matrix, ie. the more numbers, the harder it is to win.

While buying more tickets provides more chances of winning,  the more tickets to scan after a drawing, the odds always favor the 'house,' whether it be a State or a casino.

In my opinion, the endless argument about odds is just wasted words. They are what they are.

Winning is hard.

Whether 'personal picks' derived from some kind of organized and rationale strategy are superior to  random numbers from a machine is and always will be an individual decision.

Personally, I'd rather win or lose on my own, rather than allowing a machine in a convenience store to determine my fate; although I'll admit that the machines have a better win-loss ratio.

It's always good to have a playing partner.

My lottery number choices are based on analysis, evaluation, intuition and other factors.
Having a second set of eyes, a second brain, to provide a second opinion is greatly helpful when it comes to actually spending real money on a game of chance, even if it's just entertainment in lieu of movies, boozing, or whatever.

One other factor I've noticed recently is that many players are basically lazy. They
want to win but seem unwilling to do any work. They want to push a computer key and have breakfast served in bed, so to speak.

Too bad.

There is no public record of anyone every developing a computer program capable of generating winning numbers on a consistent basis.
I suggest folks who believe that such a program is possible go to a Bingo hall and observe how the winning numbers are chosen.

If they have a system or a laptop computer that can search thousands of cards and choose one or more that will match the  numbers that will be 'called' as the game progresses, they should keep it secret.

Of course, we know that no one can do that.

Lottery just like Bingo is a game of chance. Some folks win, most folks lose. And that's the way it is.

Good luck!

    Well said bobby.  Also having dorks on here talking psychobabble makes me not want to share my methods.

    Also having dorks on here who start a stupid blog experiment, with the intention of losing is quite frankly, dorky. Also having dorks on here who say the flag formation is imagination is quite frankly dorky. (However hard it is too master)

    A good workout takes time, and sometimes its time less, the numbers just jump out at you.

    The odds circular argument is stupid, because lottery is a game of chaos.

    And one can only improve chances by observing and learning the patterns of chaos.  If you take your eye of the game for a minute you might miss something, as chaos is just that. Chaotic.

    So odds will not help you so much, because odds cannot predict chaos. Odds can only tell you what is "GENERALLY" expected.

    Only experience can predict chaos.

    (A good hookah, some BC bud, and a ouija board could also help)

      I Agree! Except every new discovery seems "a waste of time" until the new discovery is made, after that all the people who deemed the efforts a "waste of time" are long forgotten and history honours the discovery.

                  Sounds like you and some of Ronnie's other critics are down on him for not producing a system of picking winners that others could duplicate but he started this thread hoping others could contribute ideas that would help him.  I'm sure the responses of his critics have been as disappointing to Ronnie as his thread has been to them.

                  So let me get this straight:  It's okay for Ronnie to expect everyone to help him but it's not okay for everyone to expect the same from Ronnie?  Right.  Your hypocrisy has been noted.

                    Mediabrat
                    I have a workout where past drawings are broken into specific groups and sequences to facilitate tracking and study.
                    I then analyze this  'how much and how often' data for clues on what might happen next.
                    Intuition is a major consideration when I choose specific digits to play.
                    Sure, guesswork is involved. That's life.
                    When folks buy quick picks they are at the mercy of the random number generator in the lottery terminal where they make a contribution to the state's monetary fund.  They have no say whatever. You get what you get, case closed.
                    So, I beg to differ - there is a difference between  educated guesswork and blind acceptance of quick picks.

                    It is true that I have been critical of intuition in the past, and perhaps unfairly so.  The reason I have done so is because previously, intuition had been offered as the only thing you need.  You are correct, however, in pointing out that intuition has its place as one of many tools to be used in tandem.  It is a fallacy to present intuition as a "be all and end all" solution.
