I'm seriously starting to think the Georgia Fantasty 5 drawings are somehow rigged by a super-computer locked away from public eye.   Over the past few days, wifey and I have played hundreds of combos (using a very expensive "lottery system". 

 

Last night's numbers were:   2, 3, 4, 5, 19..........what are the odds of that!   About the same as 1, 2, 3, 4, 5.

 

I think I need a break from this game.....I bought 200 draws, wifey bought 200 - together we "won" 6 free tickets!   I smell a rotten fish.

    I smell someone who finally realizes how difficult the odds are :) You can't assume lotteries are rigged just because you don't win. You may want to consider upgrading your membership to Platinum so you will be able to search past drawings and find hotter numbers to play for your game. Also...spend some time on the Pick 5 forum...plenty of ideas and revelations! Good Luck :)

      Lottery systems are helpful, but in the end you will need intuition and uncanny timing to win the big one.

        I Agree! Lotteries dont need to be rigged because they are keeping their 50% on front no matter what the number draw produces. I like using LP wheels to reduce my numbers pools down to 10-25 lines each draw.

          Don't feel bad, a lot of lottery players are having a streak of bad luck right now. 

          They couldn't win a decent prize even if they cheated.

              Naaaah, it's not rigged at all. You just need to understand what you're really up against here. While it's much better than PB and MM's, it's still a tough field of numbers. Okay, you have a (1-39) game and (5) correct numbers get you the payday. For illustration's sake, I'll round it to (40) numbers. (5) numbers x (8) sub- groups = (40) numbers...correct? You're basically required to pick (5) numbers from either all (8) groups, or, from a single group i.e. 1-8, 9-16, etc. The winning numbers can come from any combination of sub-groups...one number from each even. Or, as per last night's numbers, all but one number was drawn from sub-group (1).

              So, to try and "corner" (5) numbers in a 1-39 is going to be a task...not impossible though. I see where a consistent set of numbers may serve very well here. Think about it...

               

              L.L.

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

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

                Nice work LL. I have always favored a consistent set of numbers (I play work-outs too) Having a "regular" set makes me feel like I'm NOT chasing the wind and providing a "moving" target for the draw to hit. Also I hate the idea of thinking that the numbers I played last week HIT on this weeks drawing.....Sad

                  Thanks, Ronnie. I like to simplify things as much as possible so people understand better. Yeah, this is the drawback of having a truly "dedicated" set of numbers...when you don't, or, can't play 'em they'll hit every time! It'll get better, don't worry.

                    Like the OP I also have a problem keeping the number of lines down to a playable number for each draw. I'm up to 12 favorite numbers an a 4 if 4 keyed wheel is 47 lines which is too many for consistent play. I have opted for play 10 numbers which is 25 lines for a more "conservative" bet. LOL

                      Perhaps we could get away with talking financial markets in the Gaming Forum?

                          It is all about the odds... what's crazy it that 2,3,4,5,19 have the same odds as any other number combination to hit again tonight. 

                          I struggle to wrap my mind around that probability.

                          Has anyone ever played the exact same winning numbers from the previous drawing the night/day before for the next upcoming drawing?

                          Does anybody know if that's ever happened for larger number sets (pick 5, 6, MM and PB)?  I would imagine that it's more likely with Pick 3 and 4..

                            I wouldn't play the same numbers from a previous draw for a cash 5 game but would consider it for Pick3 (box) if I did not have a better strategy to employ.

                              Think of it this way. Some cities and towns in Georgia have regular Georgia Fantasy 5 players who probaly put down more than $5,000 each night and have not had a winner in years. Playing the lottery is really an exercise at futility. But we still play.

                              That money's gone fo ever
