Why would anyone bet \$12 on a hand of Blackjack?

Why would someone purchase 12 MM tickets or 6 PB tickets?

I know you're not the sharpest knife in the drawer, but why would a programmer only bet \$12 when he could bet \$100 without raising suspicion?

Having been so successful betting in the Pick-3 that you were able to parlay your winnings into other investments (remember?), I'm surprised that you've struggled so long searching for optimal subsets of 56 and 59 numbers from which to select your MM and PB lines. And with all of this success, you still find time to ramble around LotteryPost, inspiring those who want to give up, and doing your best to convince everyone that mathematicians are dull knives who just want to rain on their parade.  Don't worry, for every reader I help to better understand probability, you will recruit at least 3 new ones to become paying members.

One plausible reason someone would make 12 bets on the same number in a Pick-3 game would be that, at the time, the draws were computer generated and the bettor was one of the programmers at the lottery commission.

Same reason I play \$2 straight on Pick 4. To win \$10000 instead of \$5000.

Geez jimbo. It has nothing to do with computers or programers. P3 and P4 are fixed payout games. Sometimes I like to play \$5 straight to try for \$25000. It's 10000 to 1 odds. It's playing the lottery. Which, if you haven't figured out by now, is what folks on this forum do.

All you do is try to insinuate that somebody has a hidden agenda.

What a moron.

"And with all of this success, you still find time to ramble around LotteryPost, inspiring those who want to give up, and doing your best to convince everyone that mathematicians are dull knives who just want to rain on their parade."

Knowing math and knowing how to apply the math are two different things and based on your record on LP, you don't know how to apply the math. When are you going to use that thing between your ears and figure out people are having fun discussing playing games on LP?

"Don't worry, for every reader I help to better understand probability, you will recruit at least 3 new ones to become paying members."

It should be obvious I believe the price of a Premium Membership is worth it because I've had one a very long time. I haven't noticed anyone asking you for help on probability in the forums; do you get lots of PMs asking for help or is that another example of you Delusions of Grandeur?

Stack47,

"Knowing math and knowing how to apply the math are two different things and based on your record on LP, you don't know how to apply the math."

Making a statement like this does not make it true.  My technical posts here would be accepted by all the professional mathematicians and computer scientists I know as theoretically sound.  I witnessed them laugh out loud at a few of  yours that I showed them.  You have demonstrated a basic knowledge of probability and statistics but a profound misunderstanding of the importance that sample size plays in the Confidence you can have in your conclusions.  You believe lotteries can be beaten because you have observed systematic play that produced positive Returns On Investment over SHORT periods of time.

BTW, examples of your explanations of how "trends" produce these wins and how you strategically stop betting when the "trend" ceases, produce the most laughs when posted on a certain math department bulletin board.

"When are you going to use that thing between your ears and figure out people are having fun discussing playing games on LP?"

I observed this the very first day I discovered this website with Google.  On multiple occasions, in an effort to discourage people from spending money on snake oil software, I pointed out how LP provides all they need for free.  If the search engine here had the power of Google, I would point you to them; perhaps you can find them.

"I haven't noticed anyone asking you for help on probability in the forums; do you get lots of PMs asking for help or is that another example of you Delusions of Grandeur?"

As a matter of fact, I HAVE been queried on the subject, and in serious ways.  However, when these queries are compared to the volume of garbage I've had hurled at me by people like you, you're nearly correct -- it's minimal.  The best explanation for this is probably the fact that the number of people posting at this site is infinitesimal when compared to the total number of lottery players.

For someone who claims to be a licensed psychologist, you never cease to amaze me with your misuse of the field's terminology.  I stated my qualifications in my first post, and I challenge you to quote from it and show why you believe I exhibit "Delusions of Grandeur."  Could it be that my background and experience in this field merely exceeds yours, and your ego just can't deal with it?

Assuming your psychologist claim was made in jest, It might lend support to your positions here if you were to reveal just what it is you do to make a living.  (OR WOULD IT?)

p.s.  Did you and Ronnie316 ever settle on the optimal subset size in MM and PB?

Nice dissertation Jammy......

Why is this topic posteded the wrong Forum?

I think 28 is optimal, but that's only my personal opinion.

I usually bet \$2 straight and \$3 box on a double, but I never knew betting like that was a well kept secret because of a hidden agenda. Not much of secret because the payoffs are listed on the back of the tickets.

"Making a statement like this does not make it true."

Fair enough, I'll amend my comment. Knowing math and knowing how to apply the math are two different things and based on your record on LP, you haven't shown you know how to apply the math to normal lottery play.

"You believe lotteries can be beaten because you have observed systematic play that produced positive Returns On Investment over SHORT periods of time. "

A player in Florida will collect over \$225 million after taxes after hitting the PB jackpot last Saturday. If that player is like most of the PB players who post on LP, they weren't making an investment, but purchasing a dream. Actually I believe there are lottery games that can produce a profit over long periods of time by observation, systematic play, a sound betting strategy, and timing. Where is it written players must bet the same amount in every drawing or even play every drawing?

"I stated my qualifications in my first post, and I challenge you to quote from it and show why you believe I exhibit "Delusions of Grandeur."

I wasn't aware members needed to post their qualifications to discuss their plans on spending their jackpot winnings. Why did you feel is was necessary?

"Could it be that my background and experience in this field merely exceeds yours, and your ego just can't deal with it?"

If your pick-3 experience is limited to 25,000 players betting five \$1 QPs every drawing for five years, the experience of 140,000 LP members probably exceeds yours. What is the most you ever won on a daily pick-3 game?

"All you do is try to insinuate that somebody has a hidden agenda."

If you don't understand why I make that insinuation from time to time, I won't call you a moron, but I WILL question your powers of observation.

I erred in not anticipating the barrage I've received in this thread.  Perhaps you might refer to me in less hostile terms after you read the post linked below and realize I completely understand the 2nd paragraph of your post above.  Right or wrong, I think it was a fair assumption that it is out of character for Stack47 to choose "Option 1),"  and you might at least understand why I was so impulsive.

First two words in third paragraph:

"I erred."

Last four words in third paragraph:

"I was so impulsive."

The rest is pocket fluff.

There are more than two pick-3 betting strategies for \$10, but your math is always limited to the vacuum between your ears. You're not even close to be on topic, yet you always whine when people reply to your posts in hostile terms.

Who told you I wore a blue sock and a black sock to a job interview?

And yeah, it's true. I shot my cousin in the finger with a pellet gun.

"What is the most you ever won on a daily pick-3 game?"

In over 35 years playing lotteries, I rarely purchased a Pick-3 ticket, and I can safely say I have never won as much as a \$1 in that game.  Given the random nature of the game, If I had won anything significant, I don't think it would be something to brag about.  Do you?

Keep in mind it is also 25,000 imaginary players.

Being a day trader, I am curious to what jimbamboozlejam can teach us about the FLAG FORMATION?  Or is there anything Jimmy can teach us?

Obviously he thinks einstein, newton, and liebniz are all snakeoil salesman.

As to answering the OP original question, the most I ever won in a Pick 3 game was two of these goats, MONTY.  Never new there were Nigerian goats for sale before.
