    Good luck with those fifty lines.  Why did you settle on just using 10 numbers if you don't have a strategy?

      Because 4 if 4 is the only way I want to play. Hardly a strategy for picking the winning numbers.

        This way I was able to incorporate all the numbers from my original 2 lines plus add a few.

          Actually my original 2 lines combined were:

          03 09 10 17 27 28 47 51

          And I added:

          08 44

            4 if 4 of 10 is a wheeling strategy, isn't it?  You just need 4 of the winning numbers in the 10.

              4 if 4 of 10 is a system for playing any given numbers. How the numbers are chosen is a strategy.

              At least in my vocabulary.

                An example of a strategy with BETTER odds would be using 10 numbers from 12 previous draws.

                      Having recaptured 10% of your cost makes it more likely you will try again spending the same amount.  Lotteries over the years have discovered that structuring their average payout that way is a good way to get repeat business.

                      It does make it very tempting to repeat the bet, but that 230 line bet was just for fun and from now on I will get BETTER odds.

                        Another problem is getting enough playslips. That Australian group that bought the jackpot in Virginia needed 1.4 million playslips and I've always wondered how they got them.

                        I believe RJOh has a program for making play slips.

                          All I know is 5/28 is a lot easier to pick from than 5/56, and if I can get 5 of 5 four times in 18 draws using 28 numbers other people can too. 

                          Go with what you know, that what I do and hope to get lucky.  Not everybody know what you know,you know?

                          True, I dont know what you know, and you dont know what I know, so I will just go with what I know.

                            I don't need a program for printing play slips since I don't play more than 30 lines per drawing.  What I do have in my program is a graphic of the boards on each game's play slips which shows what a properly filled out board should look like which helps when I have trouble finding the numbers on the slips.

                            Year ago I brought a copy of Lotto Pro 2000 which prints play slips but the latest version I have is 2007 which I never got the pass word to activate.  Besides Ohio changed vendor last year and the play slips designs and layouts changed also so I would have to get the 2012 version.  The program was decent enough but I never liked having to get a new password every time I got the latest version so I stopped using it and went with my own program instead and I'm glad I did.  I can rewrite my program to give me data the way I want it and there's no bothersome copy protection scheme to deal with.

                              Another problem is getting enough playslips. That Australian group that bought the jackpot in Virginia needed 1.4 million playslips and I've always wondered how they got them.

                              I have read that some states allow players to buy boxes of play slips but I would never do that unless I planned on using them all within a month of two. 

                              Even collecting them from the retailers I've accumulated a bunch of useless ones.  Two years ago Ohio changed vendor and all the play slips changed.  Eight months ago Ohio Classic Lotto layout on its play slip changed.  When Ohio added the megaplier to MM instead of the kickers, its play slips changed.  When they added kicker to Classic Lotto, its play slips changed again.  PowerBall also changed its format in that period.

                              Chances are if you collect more than two months of play slips, you'll be throwing some of them away.
