        I Agree!

         

        Been there, done that and more, lmaoooooooooooo.

        I think if you are a clerk, you should know the game.

        My playslips wouldn't run one night, so the clerk said, "let me just give you a quick pick"?

        I said, "No thank you",  drove to another store.

         

         

        Good Luck.

        The Struggle is real!

            Hey, thanks...I really appreciate it and I'm diggin' that flag!!!! You know, the two games are one in the same and in my strong personal opinion, Pick4 is actually easier to work with in lots of aspects. It's so much easier to reduce combos for a given type of spreadsheet due to a higher number count when starting. This may sound strange, but it's true...at least from what I can see when crunching.

             If a player has no discipline, then they really don't have a system either because a system is based on producing a certain thing around certain criterias/conditions. In order to establish averages, the system must be implemented ONLY when those conditions/criteria are available. When you see it, play it. If you don't, stay it. On a Pick4 straight hit, so much profit is made that it's not necessary to play it very much at all...and I play it the same way I do Pick3 which means I get the same results and averages. Just costs more to run the numbers because there are more numbers as a whole.

             A true system is comprised of patience, discipline, opportunity, correct timing, moderate play list, and the money to play...in that order. If EITHER of these is missing, the player is losing and just pissing in the wind. I can guarantee it.

              Also a mechanical pencil, some graph paper, and a red pen/marker  should also NOT be missing for the more than casual player.

                You know you're more than just a casual lottery player when you used to keep a pad and pencil on your nightstand to write down any numbers  you saw in your dreams........and now you have a recording device and a back-up recordeing device so you can say them.

                Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                Lep

                There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                  This makes playing quick picks sound boring... :( But I hate playing my own numbers because I would want to play them every draw incase they came up!

                            I prefer a project pad with a black, red and green pen.  Picking combinations for the next drawing is a project and is treated as such. 

                            I use the black pen  to record what happened in past drawings, the red one to mark the parameters I'll use to pick combinations for the next drawing and the green one to mark what happened during that drawing.
