If you aren't sure it has ever happened, what the logic of developing a strategy that assumes that it does?

The point is that if it happened before it will happen again. For tonight as an example, if I play the numbers from the 4 previous draws the total numbers played is 18.

05 11 15 16 20 23 31 32 36 38 39 40 41 42 46 47 48 53

 Tuesday, September 11, 2012 05 · 11 · 20 · 33 · 36    + 11 3 \$120 Million Friday, September 07, 2012 15 · 32 · 38 · 42 · 46    + 31 4 \$105 Million Tuesday, September 04, 2012 16 · 32 · 39 · 41 · 53    + 16 3 \$93 Million Friday, August 31, 2012 31 · 40 · 41 · 47 · 48    + 45

Even though the 2 if 2 wheel leaves a lot to be desired for hitting 5 of 5 (with all 5 in the wheel) its only 18 lines to play the 2 if 2 of 18 and would be affordable to play every draw.

And with as few numbers as posible in the wheel its a little more likely to hit 5 of 5.

It is ok to spend \$20 on powerball someday regardless of the odds to win. Stack you should do the same to see how it feels.

It's OK to wager \$20 on a 32 to 1 long shot because if the horse wins, the winnings are paid at 32 to 1. I wasn't questioning the fact you spent \$20 on a PB 32 to 1 long shot, but was remarking on the comments you made, "I did not win anything, but it was fun to check those 10 lines. I hate losing money man.

If you bought the tickets for a dream or the fun of checking them, you got your money's worth and no problem, but you added "I hate losing money". It's a fact when three players buy 10 PB QP tickets only one of them will win something and that something will probably be \$4 matching the bonus number. Losing \$16 of the \$20 you spent is still losing money and we all know you hate losing money.

You can't improve your 33% chance of 10 PB tickets winnings, but you can change how much you lose or turn a small win into a profit. That \$4 winner (or \$16 loser) could have played the one bonus number they probably matched 10 times and collected \$40. One of those lines could match two number for an extra 3 bucks or maybe three numbers for \$100.

If PB was the only game in town, you're stuck with the 66% chance of spending \$20 on QPs and winning nothing, but \$20 worth of MM QP tickets will give you a 50% chance of winning something. If you hate losing and want to better your chances of winning something for a \$20 bet, the solution is right here in this thread. You may have noticed Ronnie has predicted a group of 28 numbers and his groups had several five number matches. And if you examine them a little closer, you'll see they are consistently matching three and four numbers. If you don't like Ronnie's numbers, some of the other predictors are doing well too, or create your own list.

On 20 lines you can use each of the 28 numbers at least three times each and use 20 different bonus and greatly improve your chances of winning something over spending \$20 on QPs. Something to consider that someday when you spend another \$20 on lottery tickets.

"Stack you should do the same to see how it feels."

You must have missed my post about spending \$20 six nights a week for over seven weeks chasing a \$100,000 plus jackpot. While you're disappointed in spending \$20 and winning nothing, I was disappointed because I spent \$900 and didn't when over \$100,000 even though I still made a small profit.

I will play a single line using Ronnie numbers someday.

I will let my hands pick the winning numbers for MM and PB. lol, lol

That's true Stack, a 2 if 2 of 28 wheel is only 41 lines.

But of course the slips would need to be filled out.

Perhaps filling the slips is too much effort??

You're wrong twice; I said playing Ronnie's, your's, anyone who predicted, or Thrifty picking his own 28 numbers is a better bet than buying \$20 worth of QPs. Thrifty said he won nothing and if he keeps on making bets with a 66% chance of losing, he never will win anything.

Right again Stack, part of my statagy is using ramdom numbers that are NOT played, and it works GREAT.

Now that I think about it I'm sure that it has happened at least twice, because that's how many times the winning numbers have appeared the the previous 4 draws (20 numbers max)

I thought you were maintaining a list of that data.

I thought you had a list of numbers depth, my list was counts per previous drawings which I regenerate every time I'm preparing to pick some combinations to play.

The numbers depth that I post is only an observation of each draw as it occurs.

If I had a list going back I would post it.
