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.

I do not know Gwbasic, or any other programming language,

GWBasic was good for learning to program in its day but I should have moved on by now and I didn't.  After Windows XP it can't be used even when compiled.  I will have to eventually find a replacement to use in later versions of Windows.  I brought a copy of Visual Basic 6 years ago but making the change was harder than I thought.

    RJ download QB64. Closest thing you are going to find to MSBasic or GWBasic. It will run your old programs too.

    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!"

      Thanks someone else suggested the same earlier.  I've been down loading manuals and tutorials for different versions of Basic including JustBasic, KBasic and BBCBasic and haven't found one for QB64.  So far BBCBasic looks like it may be the easiest to move to, it still uses some line numbers.

        QP's aren't "controlled" whereas systematic numbers are...or at least they're supposed to be.

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

        Well, let me rephrase this a bit. Not that it's a "rule", but it is the "intention" to control and direct one's combinations to accomplish a particular feat. The player is in charge of sending the "best" troops to war with a system as opposed to QP's sending anyone available and hoping to win. In addition and within reason, the larger the dedicated army the better the outcome.

        It will always be substantially more beneficial to "assign" the numbers to their specific jobs rather than to just let 'em try and figure out what the hell's goin' on.Smash

            Why don't you switch to "C" type language, like C# or C++? Once you've learnt the essentials of programming it should be quite easy to learn a new language. Only syntax differs and generally not that much. In the past 3 years I learnt PHP and C#, liked both of them and was able to start working on larger projects within weeks. In fact, I found that the best way of learning is simply by doing. You will stumble here and there but that's a normal part of learning. I am always prepared for such troubles and treat them as challenges to overcome. And if you run into problems there is plenty of help available on the net. I always use such help extensively. Recently I switched from scratch to Android apps and thanks to tons of info on the net could roll out my first app within just 1 month.

            I used to program in Basic many years ago but then encountered C and fell in love with it forever. Once you learn to "C" any other language is a piece of cake - all modern languages are derivatives of C.

              I Agree! As I've learned in the past when moving from a TI99 to a Vic20 to a Commodore64 to a Tandy1000 to a Emachine to my HP, when I have to learn a change the best way is to just do it.  Right now I feel too comfortable with my HP running Windows XP to make the effort but I will if I ever upgrade to Windows 8 or 8.1.

                  Mostly I play my own numbers because I love to advance play. I know I can still advance play quick picks but I prefer to keep the visit to the store as short as possible. Some store clerks don't even know how to work the machines or are hard of hearing Naughty

                          I usually avoid talking to strangers or friends about lotteries in stores when buying tickets.  Too many want too much information about the amounts I've won or lost and while paying for their cigarettes and/or beer start whining about they can't afford any lottery tickets.

                            "using my Own system (excel)" 

                            I have always wondered how a player uses excel to get numbers to play.  Must take a lot of time and what formulas would you use?

                            I prefer to use my own numbers because I want to think of myself as a mathematician sparing with the numbers.  I think quick picks are for gamblers, unless you are in a hurry.

                            I use a software program that did not cost much.  I don't win much but even if I spent a lot of time getting numbers I don't think it would help much.  I prefer to spend a little time getting numbers and then playing video games.

                            Anyone ever heard of Lotto PowerPlayer Ultimate 2013?  It cost $119.  A lot.

                            Home, home where I wanted to be.

                              Someone once said "Clerks are jerks."

                              It wasn't me though.

                              Far be it from me to ever say anything like that.

                              You kiddin' me?

                              Some of my best friends are clerks.

                              Oh man, we go way back.

                              I even told one he was "a hell of a guy" one time.
