Thanks for the welcome Ronnie316, Im here with hopes of discoverying new ways to help in refining my methods even further. I'm in no way any kind of mathematical brainier. I still count with my fingers. Which is probably why I had to use the history of draws (LOOKING AT THE PICTURES WAY OF LOOKING AT THINGS) to figure out a system, and its seems to work pretty good it seems.

So far this is where im at:                       649 has odds of 1 in 13,983,816

With my system, 100% accurate, :         1 in 3 draws or slightly better, my odds ARE 1 in 73,815, this is totally provable based on the draw history.

In reality my 1 in 73,815 odds are really a lot better because I follow patterns I found that some come out more often than others and some patterns that don't come out all all. So actual odds, I cannot or don't know if it can be worked out mathematically. But I'm thinking maybe I might be almost halving those odds.

So, like I said, maybe here, I maybe be able to pick up some practical number sense and refine just a little bit more,. and combine with a little ( what it really comes down to) a little luck.

You never know.

A649KING2B,

Could you please explain what you mean by,

"1 in 3 draws or slightly better, my odds ARE 1 in 73,815, this is totally provable based on the draw history."

No need to prove anything, just explain how this relates to your original post, which implied that your returns were in line with what is expected without a Jackpot, about 25 Cents on the \$.

Good one RJOh. Finally, someone has proven that I was right all along.

He's talking about a 6/49 game which has better odds of winning the jackpot than MM or PB, but many such games have worst odds for winning the smallest priszes.

I played the same wheel, matched five numbers and still lost \$3. Had I used the same numbers on a 3if4 wheel, I would have won over \$300.

2. 05-06-13-16-40
3. 05-06-32-38-56
4. 05-09-15-36-42
5. 05-09-16-36-56
6. 05-13-22-36-42
7. 05-13-22-46-56
8. 05-15-22-38-53
9. 05-32-40-46-56
10. 05-32-42-46-53
11. 06-09-15-46-56
12. 06-13-15-40-53
13. 06-13-36-38-46
14. 06-16-22-32-42
15. 06-22-36-53-56
16. 09-13-16-53-56
17. 09-13-22-32-38
18. 09-22-40-42-46
19. 09-32-36-40-53
20. 13-15-32-42-56
21. 15-16-22-38-40
22. 15-16-32-36-46
23. 16-38-42-46-53
24. 36-38-40-42-56

This is why wheels piss me off.

I try to max out at 6 lines, and try to monitor all the parameters as best I can.  A wheel hardly defines parameters.  I do worse when I play large wheels.

I do better when I play max of six games.  Max of 13 numbers.

My brain feels like its melting from looking at numbers...lol.

If you think you can see patterns and reduce odds then check out this movie on INNUMERACY

I took a brief gander on google, just to see what the hell jimmy was droning on with, and the one or two sentences reminded me of the movie PI.

An interesting movie.  Instead of cracking the lottery one guy is trying to crack the stock market while another guy is trying to crack the torah.

Its a cool movie check it out.

@ ronnie, it might prepare you for when your brain begins to melt too much.  You will know what to expect!

The used to have the full movie in pieces but they keep taking it down.

When I am close to winning or I feel I have perfected my system I get manic, like the main character in the movie PI.  And then I miss an easy hit.  And then I get all confused again.

Its like a warning or something.

I need to get back into my yoga routine to balance the lottery madness and the pressure and shock of winning big.  And I have to learn how to take off the TV.  I am being controlled by the Illuminati through the television.

I might have to become a recluse and live in a houseboat.

My pool's tics played 55 of the 59 numbers, and I caught all 5 plus the power ball. Alas, the 5 were on 5 different lines. Usually get at least 2 on one line.

But, got an extra \$4 to play extra tics next time.
