Thanks for the honest input THRIFTY, but I feel I'm positioning myself for a tax redistribution windfall. The people who are in charge of all things see me and will HIT ME WITH THE BEST SHOT. FIRE AWAY.

Be careful.  The shot you get may not be the one you want.

    Thanks for stopping in med. My request to be chosen as a jackpot winner is well documented on numborus different threads. Those who are in charge of all things fully understand my willingness to spend the money in my area to help my area and I feel strongly that I'm in a good position to be chosen for a big win. And yes the tax windfall that my state will receive will be very beneficial to my area and the schools who need the money for lunches.

    Thank you for your interest in this matter.

    Respectfully

        Try this one with 41 numbers [GAT 955769 RF 0 - 52% 5-hit] : 05 26 35 19 13 29 42 06 40 34 45 47 44 33 10 08 11 56 37 24 46 20 41 43 21 30 23 15 28 55 04 12 39 03 50 48 27 16 09 38 17

        Awesome lottoarchitect, thanks for this group of numbers. I will get them down to 28 before the drawing.

            HOW COME THE ONLY JACKPOT WINNERS ARE FROM THE [EAST - WEST - NORTH - SOUTH - CITIES - RURAL AREAS]?
            HOW COME ONLY [WHITE, BLACK, TALL, SKINNY, YOUNG, OLD] PEOPLE WIN?
            Powerball is a random game that knows nothing about who buys a ticket or where a ticket is purchased. There really is no white/black/old/young/rich/poor, etc.] button on the machine. If one draws a box around some group of players (eg., state border, hair color, shoe size), then that group of players will win in proportion to their play. If the defined group buys 10% of the tickets, then they will win 10% of the prizes - on average and over a reasonable period of time. But that does NOT mean that you have a better chance of winning in a bigger box - you then just have more folks to play against. The Law of Large numbers explains how random expectations become truer as the number of occurrences increases. So, if players in a particular group buy 8.6754% of the tickets, then we will find, if the number of occurrences (prizes awarded) are large enough, that those players win 8.6754% of the prizes. This is definitely true for the low-tier prizes where there are large numbers of winners. With 12 to 15 jackpot winners in a year, we would expect that these percentages can get out of sync with sales from time to time, but as the number of jackpot winners continues to increase, we will find that the percentage numbers move closer and closer to being the same number. Try this experiment. Flip a coin four times. You might get 75% heads - or even 100%. You would not expect to get excited about that. With only ten flips, it can happen. But then flip it 1,000 times (no cheating). You will come much closer to the statistical expectation of 50% heads. If you hit 75% heads after 1,000 flips, then something is wrong. It really does NOT make any difference where you buy your ticket. It is you a against the draw machine.

            WHICH HAS THE BETTER CHANCE OF WINNING: COMPUTER PICKS OR PLAYER PICKS?
            About 70% to 80% of purchases are computer picks. About 70% to80% of winners are computer picks. Perhaps just one of those weird coincidences?

            Do you remember when the Connecticut asset managers won the $254M powerball jackpot with $1 quick pick?

            Thanks again for posting THRIFTY I was just kidding about the tax windfall stuff but I do think people can get BETTER ODDS by using intuition and timing.

            Your posts are always a welcome sight here and I use your Positive Energy Flow System all the time as well as the SHOTGUN APPROACH.

                Your numbers are in lottoarchitect, 4+0 was awesome and the bonus number just missed.

                  From the beginning, I assumed there would be more five numbers matches than the 1 in 39 probability and maybe enough to create a reasonable betting strategy. By reasonable I mean something that could be played for around $100 a drawing and lowering the odds of winning $250,000 to under 1000 to 1 and effectively greatly lowering the odds of winning the jackpot.

                  For starters I placed topnail's numbers in a simple 94 combo 3 if 5 unbalanced wheel just to see the results. While this wheel did exceed the guaranteed one 3 + 0 match by getting three matches, it didn't any small profit making four number matches. Because I placed the numbers into the wheel in numerical order, two of the drawn numbers were placed by least occurrences making it even more difficult to match four numbers. For actual play without any "best numbers" preference, a more balanced wheel is necessary.

                  There are several other methods to reduce the size of the combos into "reasonable play"; I'm sure RJ has several filters that could be used. But the key of course is still getting enough five matches to make it all worthwhile. Matching four numbers helps to reduce the cost of play, but we need five number matches for the big bucks.

                  Your right Stack47, we have played a total of 15 draws and so far, and two different people have hit 5+0 TWICE. Im glad to see people beating the stated odds.

                    0951 = 12
                    2024 = 12

                    3136 = 11
                    5153 = 11

                    Remember MM stats can change after every drawing. MM has now had 740 drawings since its last matrix change.

                    Im wondering if any of these pairs are drawn together at the same time? It dosnt seem helpful for hitting 5 of 5 if they dont ever come in together.

                      Did you siphon off all the P.E.F. from the cow yet?  That could be the problem.  Roll Eyes

                      THESE cows are improving their positive energy flow by replenishing electrolytes.

                      I plan on doing the same.

                        I think the original question was...

                        "How many people on LP can piss on a good idea?"

                        What can we say LottoBoner, Negativism and disbelief go hand in hand.

                            O.k. 

                                I've been to the Bank today

                          They said a Christmas account,   that the money Rolls into you savings on Oct. 31st,  that's when everybody starts  kinda shopping

                              but I wanna do something big around end of the year

                                  So...... I secured $20 dollars in a  Vacation Club      you can pretty much get that when your ready.

                          Remember I wanna do something  BIG   around X-mas or New years,,,  so mabey at end of the Year I have   $200 -$300  dollars

                                                                                               Is Ronnie or anyone else mabey in?

                           

                          For the Time being    I want to try 20

                                             1-  2-  3-  6-  7-  9-  12-  16-  19-  20-  22-  30-  32-  33-  42-  46-  48-  51-  52-  53

                           

                          One of the things I did was Eliminate the numbers,    that not to many people like to discuss publicly   from the previous draw

                          You can always plan on COUNTING ME IN x1kosmic, Have you seen my "elimination" strategy? I have successfully eliminated 15 numbers two draws in a row.

                            A great point and well worth considering when picking those combinations with the potential winner.
