From GH web site :

                         106 First Prize Lottery Jackpots Worth $101,438,493 Won With Gail Howard's Lotto Systems

 

 

 

 

Didn't Gail Howard already beat you to the punch??

Do you believe everything you read on the internet?

I would really like to examine her data which led to this claim.

      Gail Howard followers(fans) believe everything posted at her website and written in her books even if it not posted or written anywhere else.  Unless you've read the same stuff, you'll have no idea of what they are talking about.  Boner's post about that LFF stuff is a good example.

        Good luck RJOh.Thumbs Up

        But to answer your question, I would say yes it does. For the last 2 months, I've been using 2 filters that, together, eliminate approximately 7.7 million combinations from Hoosier Lotto's 12.2 million total combinations. They are accurate 95% of the time. So in essence, yes, it can. The problem with jackpot games is massive odds to begin with. Even though those 2 filters take me down to about 1 in 4.5 million to win the jackpot, those are still horrible odds, so my only option is to come up with more filters or to improve all the other ones I have. All I can do is wait for the big strike.

          I matched 5/6 in February in Ohio Classic Lotto(6/49) and felt I was closer to matching 6/6 this time than when I did the same in 2002 with Super Lotto which had a 6/49+1 format.  Since I limit myself to 10-20 lines 2-3 times a week, I don't play OCL as much as I played OSL since I also play MM when its jackpot get near $100M+.  Maybe I would be better off sticking with the game I've come closet to winning it all but it's easier getting smaller hits with MM.

            Also a problem for me is that I regularly come up with the winning numbers, but I don't always play them more than once, because I'm always doing my little formulas with numbers based on the new numbers coming out also, so sometimes it can mess me up when I don't hold onto them. But I play every day and I play a lot of different numbers so it's hard for me to hold onto them all of the time, unless I like them for some personal reason or I feel that it's time for that number to come out no matter what. Something has to be real obvious to be really certain using math formulas otherwise you're still just unfortunately guessing. A math formula can be something you make up or something that's already used with other things you know

            Maybe we depend too much on  algorithms  rather than the concepts pertaining to  Chance. I think  the definitions of  ' Events, Probability and Randomness' should  be explored and viewed in a philosophical way. Understanding these concepts may change our perceptions. I personally  concur to  events been random, hence backtesting on historical draws is bit of stretch, so my approach is more  on SAMPLE SPACE and the events occurring. Probability by definition is a relative term , hence very fluid, not static to the classical definition of ODDS(like flipping a coin, H or T). By taking this approach your love for particular digits(The Brain looks for order all the time) is reduced and your waging strategy is enhanced.

              Using classical probability math? I would look for a math teacher or professor. There is Bluskov of course, but when it is about picking numbers everybody is getting silent. Anything in mind with the normal distribution?

              Its called paranoia.

                The LFF holds the essence of random.  The great irony in the LFF, is that it is invisible.

                In order to see it you must "intend" to see it.  And nobody sees it the first time on purpose.  Its always an accident.  Somewhat like serendipity.  However once found, it has the potential to be a sublime friend, if one can only believe what they see.

                If you go to her website she has snippets of publications, magazines, newspaper articles, people holding very large checks with lots of numbers.  I dont believe everything posted blindly.  I just think and believe she is a trustworthy person. (However many jealous enemies she may have)  many of whom ironically frequent LP.

                Back in the 80's and 90's she was very famous and well known and even had a late night infomercial in NY on public tv, regarding how to play smarter. (Unfortunately I could not locate any old videos on youtube, but I did find some interesting old commericials)  You dont really think about the psychology of commercials when you are eight years old.

                  I've been buying lottery tickets for 10+ years.
                  I decided long time ago to be the master of my own fate.
                  I created a substitute lottery system that I use for all my lottery plays.
                  Essentially, I broke the lottery history for the games into small pieces and adopted numerous tracking
                  charts to show real and useful trends.
                  My choices are governed by experience, intuition and other factors.
                  It doesn't always work, but I win often enough to make all the work worthwhile.
                  I'm confident that all my efforts and attention to details will pay big dividends, or not. Only time will tell.
                  I have to say that I have never used any kind of mathematics to generate numbers to play.
                  My opinion is that there are no mathematical computations anyone can use to learn in advance what the next
                  winning combination will be.
                  Preparation and Luck are the two main ingredients.
                  I'm prepared and maybe one day Lady Luck will give me a smile.

                    When I mentioned math I didn't necessarily mean coming up with a formula to pick numbers but more to assign  values to trends when comparing them and developing percentages to aid in coming up with logically ways to use any information accumulated over time.  It could turn out to make little or no difference.

                      I know what you meant, RJ.

                      Nonetheless, my reply stands.

                      You asked for opinions and mine is that anytime we bring mathematics into the lottery equation we are suggesting that some kind
                      of math is involved in the number generation process.
                      Of course, we know that lottery digits are nothing more than numbered objects being disturbed in a vessel by compressed air and/or paddles.
                      Adding them, subtracting them, multiplying them, dividing them is an outside action some lottery players have adopted in an attempt to find
                      winning combinations.
                      I think they are barking up the wrong tree, but it's none of my business.
                      I have my ways, you have yours, everyone else has their's.
                      May be best strategy win!

                        The old story, you find an play a disbalance, win, and it just covered the cost.

                            This sounds like the SL system.  Are you a believer again?

                            Better to cover the cost than to lose half your money.

                            Here in america we are not disbalanced.

                            We are unbalanced.

                              Nothing I do is proprietary and I prefer to discuss my ideas in a public forum.  I use simple math, nothing advanced and the logic I use is just plain common sense. 

                              I pick combinations that have never come up that fall within the parameters of 95% of the combinations drawn in previous drawings.  Parameters of sums, ranges and gaps are my main ones but I have added others as they gotten my attention.
