Do some number combinations have better odds?

My new systematic approach uses self picks to give me BETTER ODDS, and then an LP wheeling system to reduce the number of lines played. Thank you for saying I will win.

PLAYING THE LOTTERY MORE OFTEN FOR MORE LINES= SPENDING MORE MONEY= GAMBLING ADDICTION.

A LOTTERY STOP LOSS LIMIT IS VERY IMPORTANT.

    As long as you can stop playing any time you want to, it not an addiction.

      Thanks RJOh, what Thrifty doesn't realize (and why I like his posts) is that I started using his system long before he thought about it and saved up the money I'm now spending.

      It took years of not spending to save up enough to play $113. on every draw for a while.

        Well, Thrifty, there is no stop loss limit with a game this large, okay. Until a person wins enough to recover monies previously spent, it continues to be a loss no matter if only $2. I think the problem is this: Some players will either spend a certain amount of money, or, see where someone else spent a certain amount of money and hit 3-4 numbers. They then figure that, "If I spent that much money, then I can spend more and hit more numbers...maybe even win!!!!"

        So, they go about this plan like millions of other have, and they lose a lot of money in one shot. Then they become very upset with the lottery because they just know they should've hit 4-5 numbers, or, won. Next, the lottery is rigged and the state is cheating because they spent $300 and didn't even hit (3) numbers like they did with $20!! Then, they begin a downhill spiral with telling everyone that the lottery is a ripoff...etc etc etc.

        I think I've pretty much hit it on the head here. Yes Nod

          You believe your systematic approach of 100+ lines gives you a good chance for a big win and you have the resources to try.

          I on the other hand have run enough simulations to know my chances of a win don't significantly improve after 25 lines. I keep hoping with improvements in my data collecting and analogies of past drawings I too will come up with a system that I have enough confidence in to play 100+ lines.

          I'm thinking about increasing my potential number pool to all 56 and 25 MB.

          Good luck on your picks tomorrow.

              Thanks RJOh, this is a work in progress. From now on every time I hit 5 of 5 with 28 numbers there is a chance I will pick out 12 that have all 5 numbers in it.

              I had no idea I would hit 5 of 5 in less than 39 draws but it happened 4 times and this is draw # 22 coming up tomorrow, so I just move forward from here and see what happens.

                You're starting to sound like Timothy Leary. How many cubes of sugar do you put in your coffee?

                "PLAYING THE LOTTERY MORE OFTEN FOR MORE LINES= SPENDING MORE MONEY= GAMBLING ADDICTION."

                If you're spending the majority of your time imagining winning the jackpot, convincing yourself you will win, you will play more often, buy more tickets, and it will become an addiction.

                "A LOTTERY STOP LOSS LIMIT IS VERY IMPORTANT."

                That makes no sense for anyone who took your advice to imagine winning the lottery because their imagination will become reality. By creating a false illusion they will win, money should be no object. If you're concerned with losing, you're not imagining winning.

                    I took your 4 if 4 suggestion Stack. I like the idea of having multiple chances at 5 of 5 when I do eventually have all 5 winners on my group of 12. And I have already proven that it can just so happen on the same day that I have the correct bonus number selected.

                    How much BETTER ODDS am I getting by picking from 28 instead of 56??

                      Oh yeah, I'm kinda glad LP kept the wheels the way they are. It was only AFTER I realized how unrealistic the larger wheels are, that I was able to grasp the 4 if 4 of 12 concept.
