Now the Mega Millions has a ridiculous 75 number grid this might come in handy.

Not sure of the origin but here goes:

Hearts

Ace = 22

King = 21

Queen = 24

Jack = 23

Joker = 20

Ten = 66

Nine= 11

Eight = 6

Seven = 9

Six = 33

Five = 14

Four = 13

Three = 3

Two = 99

Diamonds

Ace = 1

King = 18

Queen =  17

Jack = 5

Joker = 55

Ten = 17

Nine= 80

Eight = 70

Seven = 35

Six = 62

Five = 77

Four = 12

Three =  44

Two = 83

Clubs

Ace = 10

King = 36

Queen = 27

Jack = 30

Joker = 69

Ten = 72

Nine = 88

Eight = 26

Seven = 3

Six = 15

Five = 2

Four = 51

Three = 39

Two = 93

Spades

Ace = 29

King = 79

Queen = 61

Jack = 38

Joker =73

Ten = 91

Seven = 58

Six = 40

Five = 92

Four = 13

Three = 93

Two =52

And here's another:

Playing Cards


Here's a method for choosing Lottery Numbers using a pack of 52 playing cards. How's that done, then?

Take a pack of cards and give it a good shuffle. Take a card at random. Any card. Turn this into a lottery number by this method:

1. Take the number of the card; ace=1, 2=2, 3=3 ... 10=10, jack=11, queen=12, king=13.

2. Add 13 if it's a club, 26 if it's a diamond, or 39 if it's a spade. If it's hearts, keep the number the same.

3. This is your first number, unless it's the jack/queen/king of spades, in which case it's not a good omen for entering the lottery this week, so you might decide to leave it!

4. Repeat the method for the other five numbers.

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.

    I have 59 pennies that I wrapped in masking tape and numbered. I use them occasionally, especially when I buy the tics for the work pool. I use them mostly when I want to play as many numbers as I can without repeats. I haven't gotten around to adding more to get 75. Not sure I ever will. QP's probably would work just as well when you consider all the combinations to choose from.

        Tarot cards have 78, kill 2 birds with one stone.

        Do a number pick, read your Tarot, than decide if you really need to play.

          Does the applied mathematical formula here owe anything to the Si Stebbins Card Stack???

          Sometimes it's extremely difficult if not practically impossible to get people to disregard the smoke and mirrors.  Instead, they seem to enjoy the ride down the proverbial Garden Path....... helpless to extricate themselves from being totally deceived by known forces in their midst who would argue that they have come here for the sole purpose of helping people.......str8ca$hhomie

                I guess I'm too cheap cheap to spend any money on anything. I'd just cut up 75 pieces of paper, number them, put them in a bowl, and start drawing.

                  Heck I'm even cheaper, I just use a computer program I wrote with a RNG that can be set for any pool size that checks the combination picked with previous drawings to see what it has done previously.  When I really want to be cheap and play only a minimum amount of combinations, it can make sure none of the numbers are used more than once or twice or what ever else I choose.  I don't even have to waste money on cards or time cutting up a piece of paper and writing numbers on the pieces.

                   * you don't need to buy more tickets, just buy a winning ticket *

                      I use a sophisticated formula predicated on how many squirrels I can shoot out of my walnut trees from my office window in a week and how many shots it takes to do it.

                      I don't recommend this system for city folks.
