I would love to play if more lines were being played...... playing 5 of your 34 lines seemed to prove futile.

    In case anyone is curious the following was my setup for 09/29/2012 powerball drawing.

    I missed 5 filters, HD, Digit 4, Digit 8, TG, and Group I.

    TG was a mistake I meant to play range 3/4 and if another digit 4 had hit instead of a digit 8 I would have got HD, Digit 4, and Digit 8 correct.

    Other than Groups D-J I only played specific values (non-ranged) for Digit 2, Digit 4, and TG.

     

    DMP had 6 3+0, and 1 4+0 winners in set of 34.

    If we can nail the group filters for MegaMillions then we should start winning some nice prizes.  We also need a strategy for Bonus Ball or recruit a Bonus Ball ringer for the pool.

    Jimmy,

    Please look at this post

    it's about selecting the groups I would like to have your opinion on it, I like the way you think , this can maybe help finding the groups, thank you.

        Well I actually played 5 lines using 3 different group setups for a total of 15 lines.  I wouldn't want to play any more lines until I come up with a sound strategy for group filters.  Anyway Powerball is just for me its not part of our pool play.  It gives me a chance to work on Group filter strategy.  My focus now is really on MegaMillions.

          I looked at it last night but I wasn't following it.  Will give it another look later tonight.

            My group picks for Powerball Drawing on 09/29/2012

            ABCDEFGHIJ
            ----------
            WWWBPBBBPP
            WWPWPWPBBB
            BBBPBPBBPP
            BBBPWPWWWW

            Jimmy

            Its easy to see why people get mad at you guys. (Im on your side and just try to figure this out)

            Above is what Jimmy posted BEFORE the draw and THIS is what he posted AFTER the draw

            I played following group setup for Powerball with real money.

            ABCDEFGHIJ 
            ---------- 
            WWWBPBBBPP

            I only missed Group I which did not hit.

            I missed digit 8 which I had as 0/1 instead it had 2 hits.

            I missed digit 4 which I played as 2/2 but it hit only once.

            All other digit filters I got correct.

            I also missed HD which I had as 0/3 and it hit 4.

            This was the 3rd draw in a row for Powerball where TG was 3.

            Despite all my snafus I still managed to get a 3+0 using DMP and almost recovered the cost of the ticket.

            The description is not only different (by 3 lines of letters) it is also confusing to anyone who dosnt understand the system (like me)

              I don't know what you find confusing.  Early Saturday morning before Powerball drawing I said I liked the following group filter setups:

              My group picks for Powerball Drawing on 09/29/2012

              ABCDEFGHIJ
              ---------- 
              WWWBPBBBPP 
              WWPWPWPBBB 
              BBBPBPBBPP 
              BBBPWPWWWW

               

              A-J columns relate to group filters, I played 3 of those 4 group setups with the most important one being the first one WWWBPBBBPP.  You just enter one of those lines exactly into DMP under group filters.  (You don't enter all 4 at the same time if that is your confusion)  In addition I set some of the other filters including digit filters.  I also showed an exact screen shot of my setup using one of the group filter setups.  I played 5 of those 34 lines that DMP generated on one ticket.  I repeated this process for two other group setups and created two more tickets of 5 for a total of 15 lines in play for that drawing.  I spent $45 and won back $14.  So it was not a successful day by any means.  My intent on showing my setup was to show that even for Powerball with a good group setup and if you have money to back it up you could win even on a 5 million to 1 game.

              I don't believe throwing all my eggs in one basket so I gave a total of 4 group filter setups that I thought might hit for that draw and played 3 of them with real money.  Its not any different than RL asking all pool members to give him a group setup and having 17 to choose from.  I just gave my 4 best group setups to hedge my bets.  Right now I am focusing on correctly set group filters which is what I thought other pool members are doing, but I might be mistaken.

              The best way to understand the system is to enter into DMP my exact setup.  In your case of selecting 28 numbers to play from, you could enter the 28 you think will not hit into the wheel section first and then set some other filters to reduce the combos.  From what I understand of your system you have 35 in play and then at your discretion you remove 7 numbers to get to 28.  That is what DMP is about in making decisions but hopefully good sound decisions when using filters to reduce the matrix.  DMP is forgiving so that even if you miss some filters like I did you can still win some prizes.

              In order to reduce MegaMillions or Powerball to a playable amount you will have to set some filters as non-ranged.  I had 10 specific filters and got 6 exactly right andt was still able to win some prizes.

                Actually I had 10 specific filters and got 7 correct.  Of the 7 I got correct 6 were group filters.  I was 6 of 7 in group filters.  If you count the 3 W group filters then you could say I got 9 out of 10 group filters correct and didn't do anything stupid with other filters to prevent some wins.

                  I understood exactly what and how he described his setup.  And if you input the setups as explained the outcome is just as explained.  If you do not use or have minimal time with how to use DM you are very right it is hard to understand and will be very frustrating.  dld

                    I count all the selections that did not prevent a 5of5,  great job.   I have had several ask me if I ever hit a 5of5

                    on a day when I choose not to play.  The first time it was a real bummer but it gets easier.  I have gotten several

                    emails in the past where others done the same and I know the feeling.  One guy told me that he had 12 lines

                    picked and his wife even said she would go pick them up and if memory serves he told her no.  I think he even

                    had the betslips filled out.  The first time is the toughest and as they say hindsight is 20/20 maybe even 15/15 is

                    closer to the truth.   The thought never really goes away knowing that you had a 100 grand or so  in your hand

                    and just let it slip away.  My reply is always the same, you did it once you can do it again.   I just hope it never

                    happens on a 100 million JP play.  I don't think I could bare it.

                      If the 39 lines were posted before the draw it would be a prediction that people can understand.

                      I have 41 lines posted on my thread and there is no confusion about what I intend to play, and no one needs to know my set-up or anything else to see what is in play for MM Tue. Oct. 2, 2012.

                        I wasn't trying to predict lines I was trying to predict the group filters and I did post 4 group filters setups well before the game and 1 of the 4 groups setups was 9 out of 10 correct.  DMP is a different concept you don't pick numbers you pick digits and groups.  Its flexible enough so that you can use numbers if you use the wheel option but I don't think you will benefit from it that much if you don't buy into the philosphy or intent of the program which is setting digits and groups versus numbers.

                        My group setup of WWWBPBBBPP by itself reduced the matrix from 5 million to 54705 combinations.  A full 5 if 5 wheel of 28 numbers is 92280 combinations.  You have to decide is it easier to set 10 group filters correctly or to get 28 numbers correct.  I've played both ways you have to decide what you are comfortable with using.

                          Ok, well I dont know the system and only want to play the lines........ If you can post the 39 lines before the drawing I would play them as I have been saying for the last 2 weeks. It so happens that I had the bonus number 8 selected for MM Sat. night (posted on my thread) but didn't have any lines for playing.

                            I don't mind posting lines but I am still in my infancy of setting group/digit filters, RL is the Zen master.  So play at your own risk because it might be another 30 draws or more before I duplicate that feat again.  RL can vouch that I did one group setup of 21 lines that he played on the pool's behalf and the best lines were 1+0.  So I have experienced both highs and lows using DMP.  I'm not ready to spend large amounts of my cash yet based on my group/digit settings until I have a better proven track record.

                              Im only asking you Jimmy because your the first person to post actual lines that can be played. I dont need bonus numbers as I only play one at a time. It doesn't matter to me who posts them as long as it before the draw and it around 41 lines for ether game, MM or PB.
