Hi,

  If you were only going to spend $1 per draw, what betting strategy do you think would end up giving you the best bang for your buck?

  This poll is geared to alot of us who don't spend much on betting, but enjoy being in the game.

      I'm not big on QPS for Pick3.

      Conditionlly I'd go with never change your numbers unless:

      1. they have a very low percentage of hit ratio.....001....002...003....025...026...027

      2. if a pair from the set has shown three times in a week

      3. if a digit has shown 3 times in a row

      4. if you are playing a double and doubles have hit 3 times in a row

      5. if you are playing triples and one hits

      6. if the sum of the digits have hit 3 times in a row

      Everything is relative depending on what is happening in the flow of the game so I'd use these as general rules of thumb.

      Things I would do:

      1. Choose a set with a high return. Something in the sum range 10 - 16 depending on what is due.

      2. Choose a set with a good mix of hi/lo and even/odd digits.

      3. Play .50 straight and .50 box.

      4. Choose a set with a high rate of return on the pairs.

        For a buck it would either be a 5/39 that pays $1 or a free ticket for matching two numbers, 50 cents straight/box on a pick-4 number, or two 50 cent lines on Cashball.

          On a Pick3/Pick4 game, I would play 50/50 on a ascending/descending number. Just my way of playing.

              Sounds like good advice, garyo, thanks.

              I may put that in my forthcoming book - "How To Win The Lottery Like A Wild-Man Gone Insane!."

              Naturally, I'll claim that I developed it over the course of many years.

                  The best low cost strategy is to stop playing for good. Stop

                    That could be very high cost if you were about to win.

                        Best is to start with all the combinations and filter down to your budget.  Better to stop filtering before one dollar because two tickets give you twice as many chances to win.  BobP

                          I Agree!

                          If you play two combinations for a pick 6, you have the overlap or not question.
