I performed a test of lottery strategies or systems posted on LP versus quick picks.

It was a three month test costing about $300 for each approach.

I'll post my results shortly.

But I'd like to know your experience and results.

    Since each individual will choose different combinations for various reasons, I won't vote. There appears to me to be no absolute answer as to which method is best.

    My greatest accomplishment is teaching cats about Vienna Sausage. When I need a friend, all I need do is walk outside, pop open a can, and every little critter in the neighborhood drops by to say "Hi!"

        I was referring to all games combined. But I should have been more specific.

        For me it was Pick 3 and 4.

         

        Thanks.

         

        I was just looking for general feedback :) More than 160 "views" and nobody voted -- wow

            For the jackpot games I usually pick numbers randomly, except for the bonus balls. For P3 and P4, I almost always play my own numbers. I don't win much, but I have been playing P3 on paper testing a workout and it has been showing a profit for this year.

              I've always had my own system(s), with a couple of QP's to round off the amount that I was spending per drawing.  It seems that the QP's never do as well in comparison to my own numbers.

                I Agree! because with most players it's either/or. And since the question is now limited to pick-3 and pick-4 games, I doubt there are many QP players. I did read in the Pick-3 forum where a player will buy a QP and play that number multiple times or in multiple drawings, but wouldn't that be considered a system?

                  I play Powerball and Texas Lotto using my Own system (excel) plus pre-test from games and numerology 7/10 scale Ive only been playing since March 2013. Most weeks play 10 lines per game. I either miss them all big time or get 3 to 4 balls correct. I have not found anything to be consistent except I either win or lose. Lol

                    I personally believe that the smaller games (Pick3/4) are better suited to self-pick combinations due to the small field. As the field becomes greater, the efficiency of successfully and consistently matching (X) amount of numbers decreases dramatically. QP's aren't "controlled" whereas systematic numbers are...or at least they're supposed to be.

                     

                    L.L.

                    Small games, frequent wins, and regular payouts 'cause.....

                    There are seven days in the week...'Someday' isn't one of them.

                      Why did that rule come from?  I didn't use it when I wrote the program for my system.

                          But I'd like to know your experience and results.

                          My first observation with patterns came from pick 5.  I then did notice them afterwards in pick 3, but two draws per game is difficult to track when you are tracking the other games.  There is only so much time.

                          Peoples general mantra says quick picks are best for larger games because statistics say they win the most.  These people also generally have not skills on how to apply statitistics to the lottery so I feel their opinions are bunk.

                          I do see people win with quick picks and sometimes I am the lucky one.  I won 3/5 on a free play last night. ( a free quickpick, although not completely free because i had to earn it.)

                          You have no control of quickpics bought in a store.

                          If you are a programmer like RJ, than you can kind of "direct" your quick picks towards something other than completely random.

                          I prefer my own methods because I have had success with them in the past.  You can develop a system.  You cant develop quickpicks.

                          Also regarding quickpics winning PB and MM, I know that they supposedly win more with quickpicks, but isn't the total amount of tickets purchased an integral part of the probability statistics regarding their ability to win?

                            It should be noted too that all systems players aren't playing by the same rules as is most QP players.

                            All QP players use the same algorithm in the lottery terminals to make their picks because they have no choice.

                            While some system players use software developed by commercial vendors others use software developed by themselves for their particular style of play.

                            System players are as different as apples and oranges and some are successful and others aren't.

                              Very true RJ.

                              Also system players create their own custom statistics, and the only limits to their ways of "looking" at numbers is their imagination.

                              Granted dumb luck is key in both scenarios, smartluck is a key component to system players. (not meant to be a plug for GH, but it is logical to use your statistics in a smart fashion)

                              Although I do not know Gwbasic, or any other programming language, (although I plan to one day learn Visual basic), right now I would not be so proficient (at times) of picking numbers if i was not very fluid in Microsoft excel and did not possess keen observational acuity.

                              Although some methods such as adjacent numbers are used by many players, some players may create a way of looking that has never been tried or will ever be tried by another system player.
