are you kidding, or what? What 'house' are you talking about? In a Casino one CAN stand (reasonable close to) even if s/he plays Black Jack or Roulette AND knows what s/he's doing. In casinos I play Hold'em, but that's not relevant here cuz at the poker table you play against other players, not against the house.
In lottery NOBODY can "stand even with the 'house' and consistantly win" since that'd be mathematically nonsense. In lottery the odds are heavily, shamelessly in the house's favor. It's simply math: just review the odds (they are posted all over the lottery sites if you don't know how to calculate them by youeself) and then use your common sense
"In casinos I play Hold'em"
The World Series of Poker rakes 6% off the top of the entry fees and every casino where I played poker has a table rake. Tournament poker isn't all that much different than any lottery game without fixed jackpots. The only real difference is in tournament poker, the 10% that cash usually get back more than their entry fee.
"In lottery NOBODY can "stand even with the 'house' and consistantly win" since that'd be mathematically nonsense."
The probability is 50% and on average most state pick-3 games payout 50% their ticket sales. In some states the average daily pick-3 volume of play is over $1 million meaning somebody is cashing $500,000 worth of pick-3 tickets every day.
"In lottery NOBODY can"
The real nonsense is saying not one of 2013 PB and MM jackpot winners broke even. Probably less than 1% of all PB and MM players broke even for last month, but with a couple of jackpot winners and many 5 +0 winners we know SOMEBODY can beat the house.
"and then use your common sense"
From that I must assume you don't play lottery games.
