Seriously?  A lot of people play that combo???

Yes, and people wonder why I give one stars to stupid threads. I'm surrounded by stupid people.

    He gives 1 star to every discussion he rates. Look for yourself at the other rated discussions. Don't take it personally. It's apparently his 'thing'.

    No, only to threads I believe are dumb. So should i rate what YOU think the thread is worth? What should I eat today for lunch today?

      Onlymoney gave you 1 star because he's a ten year old who thinks he's funny.

      1-2-3-4-5-6 is one of millions of combinations that have as much chance as any other combination.

      I would never play a combo like that, not because I don't think it could or would show, but rather because a LOT of people play that combo, and I'm not interested in splitting a jackpot with a couple hundred people.

      I think you asked a good question.

      Who died and gave you authority over what I can rate?

        It might get a little more reaction than any other set that might be drawn only because it's five consecutive numbers.  How many times have we seen any five consecutive numbers drawn in jackpot games?

        If my memory serves me right, twice maybe more I believe in the Florida Fantasy Five. The odds are about 376,000 to 1, and that's why it's happened. In bigger games like PB, it'll take much much longer to occur. 

        In smaller odds game like p-3 and p-4, it happens all the time.

        Shouldn't this topic be like the fundamentals of lottery 101? Geesh, I'm astounded by this. And i don't even study the JP games for crying out loud. No wonder so many believe they will win the JP one day, now it all makes sense.

          Actually, I do have a life. Funny you telling me to get a life, but rating every thread 1 star seems to be YOUR life. LOL. I'm not telling you how to rate a thread, but it is apparent that you do what you do out of spite. Kinda like a kid. Ya know?

          I do a lot more than just going around threads and rating them all 1 star. Then again, I don't bother to rate any thread. LP is about reading about the lottery.

          Just because people play to win a jackpot doesn't mean they KNOW they will win. Most people realize they won't , but play for fun, and the HOPE of winning.

          Nothing wrong with that.

          Have a nice life.

            Every participant should win on America's got talent. 

            All TV shows should be a hit.

              Why would it be fishy? 1-2-3-4-5 PB:6 has the same chance as every other combination. I never understood the ignorance in that department.

              Look at it this way, the last PB winning numbers were 05-06-37-41-54, PB: 26. How much time do you think will pass before that exact combo will show again? A very very long time. Of course those combos above can come in the next draw because they have the same chance of showing, but it's very highly unlikely. The time for 1-2-3-4-5, PB:6 just hasn't come yet.

              It's happened in other games with less odds like Fantasy Five games. Not so much 1-2-3-4-5, but I've seen combos in the mid 20's, 20-21-22-23-24 for example. Given enough time, they will show.

                Yup, that's the one. I must be thinking of other Fantasy Five games like the one in California which made me think it hit more than twice.

                    Many, many years ago the NY lottery ran adds telling people to stop playing obvious patterns from the bet slip. The most popular combinations being played for lotto at that time were the ones from marking the two diagonals starting at the top left and top right on the bet slip.  IIRC, each of them was being consistently played on close to 10,000 tickets. I'm pretty sure that an official with either MM or PB has gone on record saying that those are the most popular combinations for that game, though I don't about them saying how any times they were played.

                    I don't recall any official comments about the 1 to 6 combination, but there's very definitely a widespread belief that it's a very popular combination. I once knew somebody who played that for NY lotto on the theory that nobody else would be playing it. One person isn't a reliable sample, but if one of the relatively few people I know who play the lottery is playing it there's a very good chance that  perhaps 1 out of 1 to 5 thousand other people are also playing it. 1 out of every 5000 could mean roughly 3000 tickets for a typical starting jackpot.

                    You can also see that  almost every time the winning numbers have a few multiples of 5 there are an unusually high number of winners.

                      About as often as probability suggests we'll see it.

                            WinkI think Thrifty would need CPR since he used to post those numbers in the Maddog challenges...and I am pretty certain he does not actually play those numbers.

                            I WILL PLAY 01-02-03-04-05 and 06 SOMEDAY.

                              1-2-3-4-5 PB 6 If these numbers were drawn. How would you react? indifferent :/

                              With all the pre tests they do, do you not think they might decide that it's a malfunction of the drawing machine and do another draw? They are allowed to do as many pre tests as they need to, right? On Mass Lottery website it says the process for the draw lasts 2 hours from start to finish Blue Thinking . Hopefully one day we will get to see the whole process on video.

                              That money's gone fo ever
