Has anyone used his wheeling system from his book, Combinatorial Systems Wheels with Guaranteed Wins for Pick-5 Lotteries? His book got 5 star ratings from several users on Amazon. com. They even said his wheel systems are way better than Gail Howards. Thinking of buying his book.Smile

    The Bluskov wheels are as good as it gets.  The only drawback is importing a text wheel into a lottery software without mistakes to automate the process of loading the wheel with your numbers to replace the place holder numbers.

    For the most part the Bluskov wheels use the least possible number of combinations to achieve the guarantee.  There are those who say that makes for the best wheel.  Others may argue the odds of the other prize tiers should be taken into account.  A wheel that uses more combinations to make its guarantee may, due to more combinations in play, give slightly better odds of a higher prize win without it being guaranteed.

    Better then Gail Howards?  You would have to compare apples to apples and run them through say CoverMaster and see what the coverage really is in all the prize tiers.

    Another factor is when you know something is in a wheel that can't be measured.  Take for example some of the Lotto-Logix wheels within wheels where a wheel may be front loaded with a smaller higher prize guaranteed wheel inside the larger, just in case your better picks really turn out to be better.  Or when a wheel like L-L (18,6,4,6)=42 from the L-L book may not test as high on all prize tiers as Bluskov and GH, but have inside 6 three number blocks, where if you get all the winning numbers among any two blocks you are guaranteed a jackpot.

      I have both his Pick-5 and Pick-6 books. Basically, the whole book is nothing but tables of numbers. I wish he had the tables in digital format so they could be imported into software, but unfortunately it must all be typed manually.

      BobP is right about the distribution....I used a Bluskov wheel and missed a higher prize that another wheel would have hit with the same number of tickets. Bluskov does seem to try to both maximize/balance higher wins and minimize tickets required while still maintaining the guarantee(s), but the main focus is on limiting the number of tickets for each guarantee. He used a simulated annealing process to derive his wheels.

      The books are OK but I think a little overpriced (wouldn't pay any more than $10). Pretty much better off just using the free La Jolla repository and CoverMaster.

      If the chances of winning the jackpot are so slim, why play when the jackpot is so small? Your chances never change, but the potential payoff does.
      If a crystal ball showed you the future of the rest of your life, and in that future you will never win a jackpot, would you still play?

      2016: -48.28% (13 tickets) ||

        I used Bluskov's System #17 (13 numbers in 48 combinations) from his Pick 5 book and hit 5 of 5 in Florida Fantasy 5 (see page 254 in the "Post Your Winning Tickets Here" thread.)  I can't really offer any critique of his wheels but, as they say, it worked for me.

          I agree with you!

          The most important thing to lotto is the #s selection correctly instead of wheeling.

          "... if you get all the winning numbers among any two blocks you are guaranteed a jackpot.  "

          Unfortunately, Bluskov's system doesn't have the function of selecting #s!

          Also, there are so many good wheeling systems such as GH's, Lotto-Logix, ...in the market.

          I like to use GH's wheeling systems even they're not tighter. 

          • Saying Lotto #s Can be Predicted means that Lotto's ODD can be reduced down  to an economical level by a system.
          • Saying a Lotto System Works means that we can win constantly (not each draw)  and economically (get a real profit) by using the System.
          • Practice is the only criterion for testing truth.

                  One thing I should mention.  With wheels winning above their guarantee, it's really a mater of being in the right place at the right time question of luck kinda thing.  The wheel that woulda coulda have won above it's guarantee in one state fails to do so in another.  There is no test for this, heck even a cheap open cover can win a jackpot, the only sure thing is to have all the winning numbers on a FULL wheel that covers all the combinations.

                    You still have to figure out the numbers. A wheel is kind of a fishnet where you catch small fish nearly all the time. The thinner the wheel, the better the arrangement and the picks must be.

                    Does no trick do it better than luck?

                      I don't have his Pick-5 lotto book but I have his Pick-6 as a gift for my contribution of 4 of the bigger wheels in that book. Generally, you'll find the best wheels available in there, some not available at the internet at all, such as my own record 19,6,4,5=113 which I haven't published elsewhere. Several wheels are fine-tuned for perfect distribution balance (mostly the smaller ones in blocks) and the rest are the best available all around. I suppose the same detailed and careful approach was used for the Pick-5 book too. It is a nice book to have although as mentioned, special care needed to transfer the wheels to a program for quick use.

                        Wow thats awesome architect!!  I really dont have a need to transfer it to a program. I will just wheel my selections onto my notepad then fill out my payslips then pay a visit the ladies at my local 7-11.  Smile
