When I read the predictions, n money they have won. I go back, n look and see that none of their numbers have hit. So, how are they hitting anything?

    The daily prediction results show which predictions for each day that won something and you can check the results for the last two weeks. Some of our members make daily predictions on state threads, but don't use the Prediction Forum so there is no record of their wins and losses. Personally, I give more credibility to the predictors that have a record of their wins and losses, but that's just me.

      You also need to remember that each state has their own numbers games.  So picking a box three digit has an elevated chance of hitting somewhere, just not necessarily in the state where the set was picked.  However, as for stats, if they are broadly referenced, it can count as a hit.  Thus a hit but no payout associated with it.

        Just click on See Yesterday's Winners and simply scroll down to the members ID. The predictions are state specific and you won't see any losing bets.

            Your problem is believing every post you read.  If it's too good to be true, most likely it's not.

              Deb, it sounds like you think there are people who post numbers here that you can just copy onto a lottery slip and win money.  Am I correct in thinking that?

                The list of winners doesn't include any losers? Say it ain't so.

                You know that if you go back to the original predictions you'll find all the numbers that were predicted, which includes all the losers along with the winners, right?  When somebody posts a list of 50 pick 3 numbers they're covering 5% of the possible results.  Include 3 and 6 way box and it's equivalent to listing 15 or 30% of the possible combinations. If a state has two pick 3 drawings on that day it becomes equivalent to listing 30 or 60% of the possibilities.

                That means the person making the "prediction" has a very good chance of getting some right, but it also means they've also got a long list of losing predictions. There's just not a page that lists only the losers.

                    We didn't get any feed back so it's difficult to tell if Deb was talking about the Prediction Board or the predictions in the Systems and game forums. Making predictions on the board isn't necessary, but it does help to separate the braggers.

                      I can't think of one logical reason why it's necessary to check predictions when much easier to left click on a member's ID and then click on "view prediction statistics". Maybe Deb is confused because she clicked on one of our self-proclaimed experts "view prediction statistics" and saw "no report available" because the posted no predictions.

                        I Agree!  This is the answer right here.

                         

                        The reason I created the Predictions Board many years ago was so that people have someplace to separate real predictions/wins vs. people making it up after the fact.  Also so that people can track their actual successes over time, as well as comparing their success between states.  It's where serious players post numbers in order to maintain a true accounting of their wins and losses. 

                        You don't have to be an expert to post numbers there; in fact I would encourage EVERYONE to use the Predictions Board to post their numbers — even if they ALSO post numbers on the forums.  People often don't realize how useful it is for others to be able to go to the Predictions Board looking for numbers to play or include in their sets of numbers to filter.  Posting on the Predictions Board helps you and helps others.  A win-win!

                            Keep in mind you win back half of what you play over time in a game such as the daily 3 or daily 4.  You win back far less than half for jackpot games.
