If you were choosing 5 lines for powerball, have you ever chosen like this example?

05 10 17 24 52

05 10 17 27 55

05 10 17 29 52

05 10 17 24 55

05 10 17 29 55

 

For those who don't see the obvious here, the first 3 numbers remain constant in every line.

Do you see this as a waste of lines because you're limiting your coverage since you're only covering 8 different numbers instead of 25 different numbers?

...Someone's going to win eventually...

    Most people would see it as a waste, but if you have a good feeling about 3 key numbers its a good idea. 

    I do some similar things at times.

        I have done it that way for 3 numbers I like (but I rarely buy more than 2 tickets).

          I saw a player win a jackpot using that method.

            Steve Player sells systems. He has a system that is similar to this.

            If you can pick 3 numbers correct in the Fantasy Five in Florida, you'll have a 1 in 17 chance to win the JP. I don't know the exact method, but I figured it out years ago when he was peddling it.

            For example, If let's say you pick 3-17-20 as your key pairs, all you have to do is something like this below. Not exactly, but close enough. The fantasy Five matrix has 36 numbers.

            1-3-17-20-21

            2-3-17-20-22

            4-3-17-20-23

            5-3-17-20-24

            6-3-17-20-25

            7-3-17-20-26

            8-3-17-20-27

            9-3-17-20-28

            10-3-17-20-29

            11-3-17-20-30

            12-3-17-20-31

            13-3-17-20-32

            14-3-17-20-33

            15-3-17-20-34

            16-3-17-20-35

            18-3-17-20-36

              Hubby uses this technique some times with 2/3 lines.

                I mostly use Quick Pick but when I pick my own numbers, I do it totally at random and I avoid duplicate numbers as much as possible.

                            As RJOH always writes, some spend their money on cigarettes and/or booze, and some on lottery tickets, or both. I didn't see the "All of the above" selection in the last poll concerning this subject on LP. lol

                              Thanks.

                              The clerks are responsible too. They always give me back the correct change. I give them 18.01 for a half gallon of Smirnoff, and I get two bucks back. Like clock work.

                              No real drunk can make such detailed calculations while inebriated.

                              I may start a campaign for responsible drunks against irresponsible moms on "mother's little helper". lol
