BOOTED? Six times? Hmmm i wondered if i smelt a rat there.. whats up with all the boots? He did seem to blab on about nothing much.... whats the scoop??

Your nose smelt correctly.

Pick3master is well known. Check out his many past usernames:

There are many snake oil salesmen that visit LP from time to time. Most end up getting the boot sooner or later. P3M is among the most resilient, keeps coming back, like a zombie.

I'm sure you'll get to talk to him again. He'll be back...

    IMHO - If all lottery players would take the time to watch actual drawings for a short time, the folks peddling lottery junk would go broke.
    Systems fail because there are no systems that work.
    Every regular player needs to develop a personal workout incorporating reasonable tracking trends, and then use those results to make
    good choices on what to play.
    Good luck also helps.

         Now, there are some good Pick 3/4 systems out there. I've come across some of them myself. These ones employ logical ideas and have merit to them. However, too many systems ,including the good ones, have a fatal flaw ,in common, and is why they don't end up to really work. 

         So, what is this flaw? Simply put, they're based on looking for shortcuts. That is, they involve creative ,or clever, methods of narrowing the numbers down to a ,select, few so players may hit big if they win. However, in reality, this couldn't be further from the truth. You may get a hit or two. But, nothing reliable or consistent. Typically, they put emphasis on straight plays. But, this is ,only, just a selling point or marketing ploy. They know this appeals to you and you just can't resist. 

         Still, what's wrong with this approach? Why won't it work? For starters, you're decreasing your chances of winning. As we know, the more numbers we play the better our chances.  You're shortchanging yourself in another way too. That's because patterns are more difficult to find with fewer numbers. Any patterns that can be found will not be useful. As a result, you're left with using unreliable methods. In short, shortcuts just don't cut it.

        Peter St. Pierre, the guy from Wisconsin, and the Kentucky guy have figured it out. They may not be wealthy, but well ahead of their costs. They have to be in the black because no one in their right mind would play for years and lose money.

          you're correct...can't put it any way better than this. I personally do a ratio like everything else financially. Income - expenses = ratio (cash flows). If total spend equals more than income, than re-evaluate and play responsibly.

          playing what can be afforded...spend half of what was reclaimed.

            "...no one in their right mind would play for years and lose money."

            That means about 99% of lottery players are not in their right mind.

              With hits like that it is encouraging that folks get str8 mided when looking for patterns.Other than statistics,they are the only other logical thing to go by

                My dad always played one set of numbers and bought his one ticket at each PB drawing. His belief was eventually those numbers will come up...and indeed, after a few years of playing them consistently, his numbers did. Only problem was he got sick and had my mom pick up his ticket that evening of the drawing and she forgot...might of had something to do with her not believing in gambling uhmmm...i don't think my dad ever got over it and needless to say i don't think my mom did either. 
                ....and that my friends in a true story
                I play different games, but like my dad, i have my one set of numbers i play faithfully because he is right, eventually they will come up at some point in time.

                  "Why do so many systems fail?"

                  Because it's impossible to consistently predict random events.

                  This is debatable and I know it for as fact. Even with the pre-tests are factored in, everything is still predictable...and I make money doing it. I know exactly what the problem is, but no one wants to listen and cough it up. Okay, no problem.

                   

                  L.L.

                        Systems fail because we follow logic. "That digit won't repeat again, I'm sure of it".

                          Ira Curry just cleared about $100 million by playing family birthdays. Do you think that means birthdays are a good way to predict what numbers will be drawn in the future?

                            Hello Everyone,

                            I guess I can take this time to say that I am new to this site, and wish to learn at least one system that can give me some kind of luck. The only system I use, I just carry one number and play it everyday. My country plays all the main state lottos, so you can pick almost any state to play in. However,  if your low on funds, you bet smaller. I like the idea of going  after a number in each drawing,  but with no system or clue, I can't do it.

                            BedWaiting for my day to come...
