You play horses without a system.  Not smart.No No

I have a good system for horses.  However since they closed all the OTB, it dont help much.

This may or may not be true (hey Jimmy wanna chime in?)  I always love a good argument.Lovies (unfortunately I cant punch anybody over the internet)Boxing

The Odds may stay the same, but the probabality is always changing.

If you dont buy a ticket the odds of winning is ZERO.

If you buy a ticket the odds of winning is > than ZERO.

Why not sell a winning lottery system to somebody else?  I didn't realize there was a shortage of money in the world.Roll Eyes

I dont think punters play much lottery, most are already very rich!

However some Professional atheletes who spend exorbitant amounts of money on gambling could use a good system.Idea

"Why not sell a winning lottery system to somebody else?"

I'm trying to figure out why a horse player wouldn't want to buy a system that picks winners. I'd even buy a system that never picks winners so I could eliminate the horses it picks.

"it never ceases to amaze me how many people fork over hard earned cash for a system that picks winners."

    Maybe you should pick the horse that is best built and that is getting more and stronger shots by the doctor.

      From what I've read, lots of winning lottery systems are already for sale but they don't work as most players expect.  They either have players spending more money than they wish to spend or waiting for a longer period of time to win than they wishes to wait.

        An idea is becoming a retailer and validating tickets in your own business. A percentage of the spent money on lottery tickets would return into your pocket. How about that for improving the payout?

          These guys that float by the forums every now and then are simple minded......as far as the games go . 

           They don't have a clue about the difference in ODDS and Probability.

            They also spit out the word "EVENT" and say odds don't change .......and like that's the END.  LOL 

           

                       Hey... an "event" can be a one toss event.....or...a 10 toss game event......or 20 tosses of a coin    ...or even 100 tosses in a row etc. etc.

           

                                            An "event" is what the game says it is.....   Here's a game for ya.   Its called  ....."The 10 tosses in a row EVENT"

                                             I will give you a$$ hundred dollars for every " 10 Toss EVENT"  in which you toss 10 heads in a row.

                                                                       You pay me .....10 bucks for every event you don't hit 10 heads in a row.

           

                                                                           We will Play 10 such games in this series .......and then stop and pay up.

           

                                                       You probably don't have a good feeling about this bet do ya ...but you don't know why?  Good for you anyway....

                                                                                   

                                                                                     " Probability... is when Math meets common sense"   

           

           

          The only real failure .....is the failure to try.                               

                                        Luck is a very rare thing....... Odds not so much. 

                                        Odds never change .....but probability does. 

                                                                                                 Win d

              Can one number be picked in pick 3 and win? Type  Simplified not optimistic: 1 right *10 *10 = -100 + 80 = -20, so the answer is no. Smash

              At any lottery game you need two sure numbers to win. Conehead
              It is hard to get a 2 if 2 with 2 numbers. Boxing
              At keno you can play the couple and make a little net benefit,  Yes Nod
              in other games you can combine the couple with all remaining numbers.

                  Are you saying one number and meaning one combination?  As far as I know having only one number (one digit) in both pick3 and pick4 doesn't wins anything.

                  Posting only one combination for each drawing would be an interesting concept but with a minimum of ten allowed for everyone I doubt if it will ever happen because predictors like to give themselves the best chance for a win.

                    If you think one number will definitely show like 3 for example, and the winner won't be a double, a system exists that has 36 combos which will guarantee a box win.

                          You are correct. You would simply play all the combos (36) that have a 3 in them. You could also do it for the Pick 4 but there

                          would be 84 combos to play.
