I really don't know what you're trying to tell me.  You mentioned PA's ball drop games, but...

Program your simulator to show how 125,000 daily Quinto 50 cent straight/box QPs would do in 1825 drawings because it's a more likely playing strategy for some PA lottery players.

    I'm sorry you feel that way, CajunWin4.

    You may not understand why, but I have received some thank yous along the way here.  Hopefully, some of my engagements have prompted a few people to more closely examine their critical thinking skills, or lack thereof. Juries have wrongly convicted people because they were unable to correctly [logically] analyse evidence data and doctors have tragically misdiagnosed ER patients because they were subtly effected by [E.G.] believing that a certain ailment was "DUE" by 2AM because none had yet arrived and they were accustomed to at least 6 by that time...

    Illogical reasoning will rarely result in negative or dangerous outcomes in the course of selecting lottery numbers, but when this illogic carries over into the workplace, on juries, or parole boards. the results can be devastating. You want to think logically, don't you?

    "You want to think logically, don't you?"

    Oh Lord.

      It's not as fulfilling to preach to the choir.

      Very few conversions...

      You're confused, Cajun mentioned a casino site, not a Gamblers Anonymous site.

      Some people just don't get it and you're apparently one of them. Casino players aren't interested in the comments by non-casino players just like lottery players aren't interested in comments by non-lottery players.

        I Agree! This is a site foe winners, not losers. Anyone want to bet that Jammy is a cigarette smoker?

                    We have a few cynics, skeptics, pessimists, and critics on LP, but you're sounding more like someone who lost lots of money gambling. How many credit cards did you tap out during you losing streak?

                      Well that's not a very enlightened attitude....

                       

                      Anybody who is interested in finding truth will listen to those who disagree with them so long as they are using logic in their arguements...  Those who want to live blindfolded will make statements like that.

                       

                      Although what you are saying is true.  Casino players often don't want to hear about the math behind the games they falsely believe they can win at (and many recognize the math, and are under no falsehoods.  They've generally listened to the math oriented guys) and lottery players are the same way.

                       

                      All I can say is, good luck.  Since you will ignore reasonable arguments in favor of unreasonable superstitions, that is what you will need to succeed in your lottery endovours.  Although I don't wish to get sucked back into an irrational argument with you guys, as Jimmy has, so I'll just say this and move on - good luck.

                       

                      And yeah, Cajun's assessment is generally accurate.  Casino oriented websites have more math oriented guys on them.  People who understand and agree with the things Jimmy posts.  I can't speak for him, or his motivations, but I suspect that he wouldn't have much reason to be as active there, as he seems to be attempting to make people who don't understand the math stand a chance....

                        Stack47,

                        The most frustrating aspect of trying to encourage critical thinking here is that people like you and Ronnie316 are oblivious to your cluelessness.  You are convinced that your knowledge of ways to increase your "Hit Ratio" is earth shaking and that I don't understand what you're doing. Since you claim you were doing lottery simulations before I started posting here, you can surely test the hypotheses necessary to convince yourself that designing your bets to increase the number of 2-3/5 matches (which can be done) WILL NOT INCREASE YOUR LONG TERM "PRIZE RATIO"  results over Quick Picks.

                        https://www.lotterypost.com/thread/218174/1728520

                        As for the topic question, there are many people earning steady and reliable incomes from "Playing" the lottery.  Those who sell software and other services to players do well, and jackpot winners do very well, if they invest their winnings wisely.  And last but not least, state governments and their employees do well too.  For the majority of us, a 33 to 50 cent return on each dollar wagered is par for the course.

                        When you have glimmers of realization that what I'm trying to tell you is true, your pride will not allow you admit it, so you engage in feeble or silly attempts at obfuscation of the truth. You are not doing yourself nor anyone else here any favors when you do that. You help make the experience here for anyone seeking true knowledge, a waste of time.

                          I Agree! Its raucousness sounding to hear someone who believes in the power of negitive thinking.

                              I've always wondered why you are allowed to post such fallicous and mallicous crap and what you gain from it.

                               

                              The quality of your posts are terrible, and you've been a ridiulous volume of them over your year and a halfish here.  You're a mean person, and you are particularly ignorant.  Why not get off your high horse and use logic?  Maybe it's because you're the type of person to claim to be a 5+1 winner, when you actually only "won" in your own head.  And you call non lottery players losers.

                               

                              I'll be real frank here, before I go back to doing more important things than arguing with a rock, YOU are the loser.
