Lotteries with a Pari-Mutuel system work similar to most lotteries, but with a different payout. States with pari-mutuel betting pay prizes based on the number of winners. This means if there are 3 $1 million Powerball winners within a state, then the winners would not receive $1 million. Instead, each winner’s prize would be determined by ticket sales and number of winners. This can cause the overall payout to end up more than the advertised prize in some cases, and lower than the advertised amount in others. In simplest terms, it is a system of gaming in which wagered funds are pooled and then paid, in equal shares.

In the time frame mentioned above there have been 2,363 drawings. I look for combinations of at least 4 out of 6 that have hit multiple times. To date I have put these combinations into 513 Groups which make up 1,986 of the total 2,363 drawings or 84.05%. My system not only beats the Actual odds of 4 out of 52 balls, but also the IL Pari-Mutuel odds of 4 out of 52 balls. If I counted right, there are 34 of the 513 Groups that matched 5 out of 6 balls more than once.
This is one reason why I do not play quick picks. But then again, what do I know???????
Good Luck & Best Wishes To ALL........................................................
