Do some number combinations have better odds?

Is there something in the water here?  Why are Lottery Post members always so flippin' obsessed with bringing politics into everything?  Even if you were correct about my political leanings -- which you're not -- that has absolutely NOTHING to do with the discussion at hand.

Everybody thinks they've got the perfect system, but strangely enough, they all clam up when you ask them to show their results.  Turns out that even the "best" systems lose much more money than they get back.

With over 175 million combinations, figuring out the one winner is pure luck.  It's practically the very definition of "needle in a haystack".

It is true that some combinations have better odds than others, but only in the most general terms.  I highly doubt this can be broken down specifically enough to be of any real (i.e. big-money winning) use.  But, like RJOh said, if you really think you're on to something, participate in Maddog's challenges and show us what you've got.

Ok, thank you. In the most broad and "general terms" is exactly what I'm talking about. I'm not saying its the holy grail or that I can hit the JP playing 3168 combinations. I'm talking about play 49,000 lines only because its the smallest, easy to define group I could think of off the top of my head.

Here's the thing. The results are WAY too consistent with each groups overall odds "in general terms" to NOT be predictable IN SOME SMALL WAY. I use caps to emphasize that I'm not talking about some miracle system. I'm talking about any tiny, small advantage that could (maybe, possibly) be built on later.

In the example of all even numbers that RJ posted for me to see. Notice that the odds as a group (98,280 lines) are 2.6% overall. Also notice the consistency of the results of 41 times out of 1572 draws, which equal 2.6081%

That is consistant down to I/100th of a percent.

But of course, I'm sure it will just be a "fluke" if I hit 5 out of 5 in the next few weeks?

Not a fluke.  Luck.

I wish you good luck lol.  I just want you to realize it gives you no advantage, not even a small one, in terms of the odds of hitting.

According to the story at USAMega 6 lucky players matched the first 5 numbers for a \$250,000 prize: 1 from California, 1 from Illinois, 1 from New Jersey, 2 from Texas, and 1 from Wisconsin.

Consider our services the "LIQUID DRANO", of unclogging the negative energy flows which surround us daily. The sceptics are very sceptical, as

far as I'm concerned.

I enjoy the "rigged" games, makes it even more gratifying when you finally hit that jackpot!

All yous guys at LP who tell people they cant win the lottery should start your own church, and recuit med as your Pastor.

You can call it The Church of the Negitivity.

You can write into your constitution things such as:

MORE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT

MORE REGULATIONS

MORE TAXES

ABOLISH 1%ER'S

ABOLISH STATE LOTTERIES IN FAVOR OF FEDERAL LOTTEY WITH NO JACKPOTS

Great post Ronnie!

If they take donations at this "church," wonder if they ever consider spending any of it on lotto tickets?

Probably not, because their to afraid of the long-shot odds of winning.

As a matter of fact, my friends and I didn't play in the live drawing last night because you and the other LP members advised us not to. What was it you said?........

you might want to run some of the past winning numbers to see how you would have done in the past had you bought all 46000 lines.

Of course. we are not the least bit concerned or fretful, and there are 3 reasons why:

1. We are playing for entertainment purposes only.

2. Winning or losing will not effect our lifestyle or outlook.

3. We are confident that we can play and win when the optimal conditions arises again.
