    I think as far as MM and PB, just pick a set of numbers and buy a quick pick.  Check to see if the number set has come out before, and keep your fingers crossed.

        Some people pick a combo and play it fo ever. Some people play quick picks. Some people do workouts (research cold numbers, hot numbers) and play those. Some people do all three. I would advice quick picks because they are easy to do and win as often as other methods. Thumbs Up good luck

          maringoman,

          A wee bit more often as other methods.

          From the PB FAQ page:

          WHICH HAS THE BETTER CHANCE OF WINNING: COMPUTER PICKS OR PLAYER PICKS?
          About 70% to 80% of purchases are computer picks. About 70% to80% of winners are computer picks. Perhaps just one of those weird coincidences?

          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.

                Chances are if you're constantly losing then there is but I can't tell you what it is 'cause I have the same problem.

                    Want to know a little secret on how to improve your odds by - literally - 129 MILLION?!?

                    Totally serious on this.

                    Follow this two-step recipe:

                    1) Choose to play MegaMillions

                    2) Instead of buying one ticket, buy TWO tickets

                    Odds of winning: 1/298,890,850

                    But with two tickets your odds soar to become 2/298,890,850.... OR.... 1/129,445,425

                    Get that! A simple dollar has improved your odds of winning by about 129 million! Scared

                    LOL

                        LOL

                        Your division is right but the quoted odds for 5 + 1 are wrong.

                        MM

                        Match Prize Odds

                        5 + 1 Jackpot      1 in 258,890,850

                        As for the "Once upon a time" theory about a simple dollar improving the odds, many here believe or want to believe that but do you really think one more dollar eliminates 258,890,848 combinations not played?

                        $1 eliminates one combination, another dollar eliminates one more combination, so in reality you have 2 combinations covered and 258,890,848 not covered. Eliminating half of those with one more dollar is a fairy tale peddled by people selling systems or tickets.
