Not bad, 3 4-hits in 4 tries seems good to begin with. Anyway, my picks for 14 August 2012:

GAT 25526  : 01 02 05 06 10 12 16 17 18 22 23 25 26 27 31 33 38 39 41 43 44 46 51 52 53 54 55 56
GAT 881787  (MB) : 40 (04 12)

My submission is again GAT 25526 + GAT 881787

Those I monitor for their progress:

GAT 175793 : 03 04 07 09 15 16 17 19 20 21 23 24 25 30 32 33 35 36 38 39 42 44 48 49 52 53 54 55  (I may withdraw this one, it seems it has entered it cold cycle).
GAT 276633 : 04 06 07 09 10 11 12 14 17 21 22 23 25 27 32 37 38 39 40 41 42 43 46 47 50 51 52 54 (a new GAT that emerged as promising)
GAT 2488985 (MB) : 14 (11 13) - numbers in () are the 2nd and 3rd choice of this GAT for the MegaBall
GAT 3584375 (MB) : 27 (08 29)

[data reference D=50 SD=20 RF=4]

Congrats on the other winners! 5+1 is a fantastic hit! By the way, what is P.E.F.?

Nice work lottoarchitect, P.E.F. = Positive Energy Flow. It is a referance to Thriftys Positive Energy Flow System.

      Here is my measly little Twinkies bet of 100 lines. I asking if they were charging me any "extra" and they said no, so I'm within the rules of shotgun play.

       

      Managed to get 3+0 on my $100. bet for a $7. win.

        Excellent Ronnie. What are your feelings now regarding the shotgun approach?

        Just think, If you had just got the Megaball you'd be $100 in the black. Good try, maybe next time on the PB?  Roll Eyes

          Thanks  mcginnin56

          I'm ok with the shotgun approach of buying multiple lines without spending extra money?

          lol.

          I do think the whole QP thing a very weak approach to buying multiple lines. I have received the standard 7-12% every time I have bought a large number of lines.

          I'm looking forward to see how an abbrev. wheel will "Stack" up against the QP.

          I'm going to stick with the 25 for 2 more draws to see if it was really "due"

            How did you decide 25 was "due"?  If it's a secret you rather not share, I'll understand.

              When Ronnie achieved his unprecedented 5+1, he was keenly aware that the Megaball #8 was "due".   Thumbs Up

              Not so much a  secret, as a great gift, and a large supply of P. E. F.!!!   Banana

                  Thanks mcginnin56, its nice to see that at least ONE person was listening when I said that I was doing "everything out in the open" lol.lol.lol.

                  I know, it seem unthinkable that I'm not "an elaborate troll" with some ulterior motive. lol.

                  Besides I already stated in another thread that the power of P.E.F. had caused me to believe that topnails pick of 12 draws ago was now moving "into the hot zone"

                  What can I say......... a hot number is a hot number............

                  I'm giving THIS hot number 2 more draws.

                    Yeah good Karma, and positive energy are difficult  entities to measure and calibrate. You may require a P. E. F.  Ap, to convert to the required

                      Try to relax a little RJOh, let your shoulders drop down and your jaw become slack.

                      There are some intangibles here that your not seeing unless you relax.

                            Tonight I'm buying 10 line for PB but if it's won tonight, I'll be buying 20 lines for MM on Friday.

                              Thanks again for your help Stack,

                              I'm going to use Thriftys shotgun approach and buy up to 200 self picks (improving my chances of winning without spending any extra money)

                              Can you boil down my 28 numbers to 200 or less?? I want to play 100-200 self picks tonight with the bonus ball 25, I'm not sure I can manually fill out that many play slips (anyone know of an app for that??)

                              For $100, I'd play a 3 if 5 abbreviated wheel and there is an around 200 combos 3 if 4 wheel. Another option for $200 is playing five 2 if 2 wheels.

                              Many have questioned the value of playing 28 numbers because a full wheel has 98,280 combos, but they fail to understand that playing even a small portion of those combos give them a better chance of matching all five numbers or the jackpot when the five of the 28 numbers are drawn. Just using 20 of the combos gets a one in 4914 chance (when matching all five numbers) compared to the one in 195,235 chance 20 QPs gets.

                              The reason for buying QPs is we don't which numbers will be drawn and even if we're guessing at the 28 numbers and play 20 of those combos, the odds against us matching all five numbers are no worse than getting 20 QPs. By matching 3 or 4 numbers, are chances of getting a three or four number match are better than the same number of QPs.

                              To me a true "shotgun" approach is using all 56 numbers on 12 lines where the only thing preventing Thrifty from matching five numbers on one line is the order in which they enter the numbers into the wheel. I'm not sure how to calculate the odds against 12 QPs having all 56 numbers, but it's nothing even close to the hundred percent guarantee a self pick player gets by distributing all 56 numbers on 12 lines.

                              To Thrifty:

                              Does it make more sense when you buy QPs because you don't know which 5 of the 56 numbers will be drawn KNOWING you'll probably never get all 56 numbers with 12 QPs or play all 56 numbers on 12 lines KNOWING you'll have all five of the numbers?
