    Based on MY experience?  Seeing that I have won 2$ in 2015 - my wisest move would probably be to have someone else pick my numbers.

      Realize that you're probably not going to win and DON'T CHASE!

      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.

        If winning the Argentina Pick 6 lottery is your Plan A, you would be well advised to formulate a Plan B !!!  [The Pick 6 lottery is hard to win, in any country !!!]

        Pampas, what is your day job ???  What do you do to earn a living ???

            You have to remember that most people who play the lottery are not going to win much. It's much better to keep yourself on a budget and only play occasionally, that way losing is much easier to take. You mentioned working for the drivers license department and that sounds like a decent and secure job. You would probably be better off just investing your money in your 401k if you have one and by retirement you might have a nest nest egg.

                I Agree!

                8 notes scale an octave
                master the scale
                and you will master the score

                  Review the lottery games that are available to you and learn their odds.  It may be better to play a game that has a better chance of winning big, rather than holding out for the "impossible dream" of a huge jackpot at very high odds (e.g. MM or PB).

                  Once you have selected your lottery, study it and see how the numbers behave.  Become an expert in that lottery and you will begin to know what types of tickets will win.

                  Also, I would put all your lottery money into the same game, instead of spreading it around between a variety of games.

                    Be prepared to lose, it's a matter of how much you are willing to lose chasing a jackpot win. 

                    Remember buying $10 worth of tickets and winning nothing is the same as buying $20 worth of of tickets and winning $10 but with the latter your odds of a big win are better.

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