      Listen PAMPAS !!! You have to CRAWL before you can RUN !!! Play and Win your country's Pick 4 game first, on a consistent basis  !!  Forget about Pick 6 !!! 

      You probably won't win Pick 6 before Pick 4, b/c Pick 6 type Jackpot games [like PB/MM] are normally won more often by Quick Picks rather than choosing your own numbers !!!  Therefore, it is a matter of DIVINE LUCK to win Jackpot style games.

        It depends on what choices the individual makes along the way, choices lead to consequences like the "Butterfly Effect".

        So many stories I've read about someone's friend or family member asking them to stop at a convenience store and purchase some milk or whatever, only to decide to buy a few QPs also just for the heck of it, and then going on to win a JP.

        Maybe if the spouse/friend/relative never asked them to stop and buy milk, he/she would never have bought the QPs, and ended up with only sour milk. Green laugh

          Patience--get a set of numbers and play them until they hit.

          I keep reading where winners have played the same numbers for years until they win.  You can try it and if you want to play some different numbers, do that--but always keep your original set of numbers in play too. 

          Good luck to us all.

                    If you want to retire as a millionaire than invest and save like the comments above.  There's starting your own business or winning the lottery.

                      I Agree! I play the lottery strictly for entertainment. Anyone relying on winning a major lottery jackpot to fund their retirement nest egg will be sadly disappointed.

                          Only doable if you earn $250,000 a year or better.

                          The way I see it is that there are two types monetary lotteries in life, the lottery games and the job lottery.  I think most people would have better odds with the game lotteries than the job lottery.

                              For the regular lottery player, over 99% being luck with a fraction of a percent being game selection, numbers selection, and wager type / amount.

                              Back in the early days of lotteries, some attempted to play a very large percentage of combinations in games that featured jackpots well in excess of the odds. Ie. a $1 game with 1 in 1 million odds with a $5 million jackpot. Needless to say, lotteries most everywhere now require playslips to be filled out by hand.

                              Extended play games, such as Bingo, Crossword, etc, is another avenue in which some have likely come out far ahead by analyzing the uncovered numbers / letters on unplayed tickets to determine the likelihood of it being a winner. Lotteries and instant ticket vendors have taken steps to address this, but flaws likely still exist in some games. However, unless one has a lot of money to burn and/or is a lottery retailer with access to tickets, this is near impossible to game.

                              Speaking of lottery retailers and instants. They have a huge advantage, since they have physical access to the tickets and plenty of time to examine them for patterns (extended play games, in particular) along with tracking the losers and redemptions. While many players don't scratch in the store, some do and a very observant retailer can watch for streaks of losers and selectively play following tickets themselves, knowing that instant ticket packs are seeded with prizes in a predetermined fashion that can be gamed. Ie. a $300 pack of $1-$5 denomination will most often contain at least $140 or so in winners. Some lotteries even publish a guaranteed minimum.

                              In short, the easiest way to game the lottery is being a lottery retailer. Plus they receive ~5%+ commission on gross sales giving them an additional advantage over the regular player.
