The title "Taking the Mystery out of Picking Numbers (jackpot games)" makes one think the mystery of picking numbers will be explained only to find out there is no mystery in picking numbers, the trick is picking a winning combination of five or six from a field of 35 to 75 numbers which is almost impossible and if we do is even more impossible to repeat.

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

    Should have put NO MYSTERY in huge bold letters.

    Of course the mystery is no mystery to the people who have systems.

    The mystery is to the people who keep looking for the solution to the big hush-hush secret allowing others to pick numbers when they cannot. Its this idea that keeps people spending money on software, books, and prediction services (like the Ghana 5/90. There is more money in predicting those numbers than in playing the game, ergo, this thread.)   

    I could have asked, "What makes You Think Anyone Has a Better System Than You?"

    I could have posted a youtube of someone writing numbers on slips of paper, and "picking the numbers" out of a bag, box, bowl.

    I didn't.

    I wanted to start a discussion on the tricks and tips people use to pick numbers. 

    RL has offered ideas I'm going to test here. 

    But think about it, how long would it take you to explain your system or to teach another person how to use it?

    Me?

    It would be an ongoing process. I can lay out what it entails. I can give you the tools, but if you don't learn to use them, I might as well give you a 10mm socket for 5/8 bolt.

    Sure, some will read this and keep believing there is a mystery. They will keep searching for the simple answer.  Can't blame them. They want to believe there is a simple answer.

    And it all sounds counter to the idea that there is a system that can help you win, but I believe there is.

    Still, I don't think we're at the point where somebody can whisper magic words in your ear and suddenly you know how to pick numbers (unless its a genie or some such).

    The point we're at is more like horse ----> water.

    Maybe next week somebody will post a VOPP and we'll all be millionaires.

    Could happen, right?

    My greatest accomplishment is teaching cats about Vienna Sausage. When I need a friend, all I need do is walk outside, pop open a can, and every little critter in the neighborhood drops by to say "Hi!"

      G, 

      WHAT OMG you mean there is no "lucky" button to push to get all the numbers? Lol 

      I know what you mean.  I've been looking at the Lotto Texas most of the day   I'm looking for some advantage to use with what I already do.  Actually reading this post gave me some ideas that I'm trying tonight.  I don't do predictions on the board   We shall see if Ball 1-2-3 is ODD. 

      Thanks for the help

      Stay In The Vortex, you'll be happy you did ..... Random? Seriously? You want me to believe that?

            Skyline,

            Played Lotto Texas the same way I'd play 2Step. 3 SPs, 2QPs

            No excuses.....

            Winning numbers tonight were:

            8 21 33 37 42 50

            Both the QP and the SP have the 8 in the right position (line C and E).

            The QP has the 21 (wrong position - line D).

            SP got 33 and 37 in the proper positions (line B).

            Nobody won. Jackpot went to 20.25 million.

                Not sure I understand your question.  Using a subset of the digits produces the reduction.

                    I see that line B had 7-ID's, 0-1-3-4-5-6-7-and and 5-BD's.  perfect for a pick-6 game.

                    Hitting 3 numbers in there correct positions,  A+++.  4th number one digit off.

                      How hard would it be to do this for back digit BD and non-BD pairs showing  total hits and games out. 

                      When I get time I am going to code it just to see what it looks like.

                        Good job G. I missed B1 and B6. Had the 8 disregarded it "thinking" I knew it would be odd. Had thought B 6 would be 51. Had 47 and 49 on 2 other lines.  Played 20 lines. I'll learn this new digits system. I can see it's benefit. I just have to wrap my brain around FD and BD EO. That's what threw me off on B1 plus knowing mirrors like to repeat. Errrr.... I had told a buddy of mine and he reminded me last night AFTER the draw what I told him about mirrors. He got B1 B2 B5 B6.   If we only collaborated before the draw lol

                        Stay In The Vortex, you'll be happy you did ..... Random? Seriously? You want me to believe that?

                            No excuses.....

                            8 21 33 37 42 50

                            Both the QP and the SP have the 8 in the right position (line C and E).

                            The QP has the 21 (wrong position - line D).

                            SP got 33 and 37 in the proper positions (line B).

                            Nobody won. Jackpot went to 20.25 million.

                            Think you had a typo there gary. the last number was 49, not 50.

                            In the Texas lotto game, there are 6 decades in the game. Singles, teens, 20's, 30's, 40's, and 50's. Going back through each draw over the years, most of the draws have 4 decades that are in play. Wednesday night's draw had all 6 decades in play, which is extremely rare. Like RL, and gary are doing, I think we are all looking for ways to pick numbers, and also for ways to cut the odds. One thing I try to do, (except when I get lazy and buy a QP), is eliminate playing 50's, and one other decade.

                            You still have to pick the right numbers, and guess??? the right decades to play, but the end result eliminating a group of numbers eliminates millions of combinations.

                            Playing from a pool of 39 numbers instead of 54 means going from 25,827,165 combinations to 3,262,623 combinations.

                            CAN'T WIN IF YOU'RE NOT IN

                            A DOLLAR AND A DREAM (OR $2)
