Aside from using lucky birth dates, anniversaries, and other "majical numbers" selection processes, can anyone put aside the 1 in 175’711’536 odds and play using a system that's not based on the odds?  It's daunting to think that matching all numbers drawn have to be weighed against those logical odds.  To be frank, when I play I don't even think of the odds.  I think of win and loss percentages dating back to the inception of the Mega Millions Lottery back in 2002. That's why I wrote the Mr. Lotto book in the first place.  Remove the odds and chances criteria (which will still undoubtedly be there) and focus on the percentages of the last numbers that actually were drawn in any of the given games and start from there.

There are many LP members already doing that based on their experiences and those of other LP members who have shared their ideas.

When you say "There are many LP members already doing that."  What are you referring to?

Having just joined, you probably haven't had the time to browse some of the many threads here.  When you do, you'll see for yourself not only are some members doing that but testing many other ideas too.  There's probably little you can think up that hasn't already been tried or being tried here.

Good luck to you, hope you pick up some ideas that will help you win a jackpot.

I would strongly urge you to read the entire history of all the forums here.  You will find that many ideas incorporated into lotto books have been discussed many, many times on this site.  If fact, I am of the opinion that the many lotto books written have been researched using this site and the plethora of ideas to be found here.

Good advice but most new members prefer to just ask the old questions again, it's easier than doing all that reading.
