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

Sometimes when you tell others what you think you know, they think its not worth knowing.   If you start winning then that worthless piece of knowledge becomes more valuable.

    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.

    I would only collect what Im going to use.

      I'm already up $16 million on my predictions. And I dont even know anything, except what little 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.

        Thanks for the tip. I will consider the program once I'm ready to start playing the 4931 lines.

          Lotto Pro has a 15 days free trial period that allows you to download all the previous drawing results of all  active U.S. games.  Even if you don't buy it, you'll have up to date files for all those games.  With a slight modification, they can be imported to other software.

            All that information sounds really wonderful, but all I need is for it the mark 4931 play slips so I can "print"

              Since 28 numbers can generate 98280 combinations of fives and the odds of matching 5/56 with that many combinations is 1:39 or 2.6% which is about a third of 7.5%, I wouldn't have any idea how to go about trying to develop a strategy to accomplishes that on my budget.

              The only strategies I've ever considered were picking 10-30 combinations that had never come up with popular distribution patterns of previous drawings.

              What does "your budget" have to do with developing a strategy??

                I dont have $4931. per draw in my budget, but that doesn't prevent me from working on a strategy.

                  I was just responding to what I thought was a question. 

                  Fact is when using a strategy I've thought about I like to recalculate the data up to the last drawing which takes so long some times I skip playing and start preparing after the drawing to play the next one.   So if it's never going to be in my budget to play more than thirty lines, I don't spend time thinking about it.

                    Ok cool, it looks like 4931 lines per draw would be a good bet as long as I can hit once every 15 draws

                            Sometimes when you tell others what you think you know, they think its not worth knowing.   If you start winning then that worthless piece of knowledge becomes more valuable.

                            I think the key to knowing what you don't know, is knowing what you know.

                              How would you know that its "never going to be in your budget"??

                              You do buy lottery tickets don't you??

                              Sure I buy lottery tickets but only after I've thought about it.

                              When ever I play 10-20 lines they are picked using a RNG that cycles 1000-5000 times or more and produce more than 200-500 lines within the parameters I chose of which I picked 10-20 to play but save them all to check after the drawing.

                              The 10-20 lines I play usually do as well as any in the group I saved and usually the first 10 lines do the best in the group of 20.

                              With those kinds of results so far, I question the value of playing more than 10 lines but usually play 20 to give myself some extra chances at winning.

                              It's not so much that more than 30 lines isn't in my budget as I don't have a reason to play more lines.

                              Obviously you've come to a different conclusion and I say good luck to you and I hope you win a jackpot.
