First off I want to thank you all for this website.   Stategically playing the pick 3 and 4 lottery has totally changed my life.  I no longer "give" the state money in the lottery game without winning from time to time.  I started about 2 months ago using various different lottery strategies to help me with my pick 3 and pick 4 bets.  When I first began, I was making approx 500-1000 additional income in playing lottery in NC and SC.  I used the strategies as I was taught (317, 316, pyramid and mirrors) throwing all doubt to the wind.  And won both Pick 3 and pick 4 all boxed wins but i played twice a day and multiple bets on my favorite numbers:).  I had so much confidence that I would win that I swear I was so aligned with the universe I was destined to win. So I decided hey, I wanted to go for the BIG wins.  That was about 6 weeks ago.  I bought a few different software products to help and I swear ever since I have been losing MOST of the time.  I have won maybe 4 times in the last 6 weeks and small amounts (ie. $40.00)  so I come to this website and I even compared my numbers against many of the regular winners and I swear I can even win using their numbers LOL!!!!! I am beginning to think someone has put a 'root' on me!!!!! I have such low confident and usually will have 2 of the 3 numbers that hit almost everytime i play lately,  that I am conditioned to lose now.

 

So, I am going to go back to the basics and see if I can re-teach myself how to pick my numbers with more confidence.  However I have  questions for you Experts and Hitters out there:

 

HOW MANY OF YOU DO THIS FOR A LIVING? AND MAKE ENOUGH INCOME TO PAY YOUR BILLS?

IF YOU ARE OPEN TO IT, PLEASE ADVISE WHAT STRATEGIES DO YOU THINK ARE THE BEST TO USE AND WHICH ONES ARE JUNK?

I keep seeing triples in my workouts today (666 111 999 444 777 000 555) but usually a "mirrored' version of whatever number hits is what shows up in SC instead of a triple.  So my question is....is there a usual time when you will notice a bunch of triples coming up in your workouts, but no triple hits? 

Why do many of you predictors post all the same numbers for all the states? 

Is it better to just pick a set of numbers on Monday and just keep playing them over and over again for the week?  How do you do that anyways?

Why do most triples tend to hit on Sundays (at least that is what I have noticed since I started tracking it)?

Are there certain states that trend together?

Why does it seem its easier to hit Northern States or is that just me?LOL

How many of you believe in the laws of attraction as it pertains to your success?

What other advice would you give newbies like me? 

Are there any others who feel the way I do or who are dealing with losing streaks right now? 

Thank you in advance.  Many of you are friends in my head and you dont even know it yet:).  Mostly I think of you guys as celebrities and its always great to see how many of you are supportive of one another and always congratulating each other when you hit.....

    I Haven't Predicted For Some Time Now,But When I Did I Predicted For "All States"

    To Do A Workout For Each State Would Probably Take Me 10-15 Minutes/State.

    Predictions For The Day Must Be In By 10AM

    Do That For All States That Are Listed Would Take Way Too Long.

    Anyone With A Gold Or Platinum Membership Can Inspect The Previous Draws For "All States" Combined

    You Could Go For Sums/Root Sums/Colder Digits/Pairs Etc. That Hadn't Hit The Previous Day In All States.

    Do Your Workout And Post Your Picks

      Thanks Lottobux,

      I use many of the strategies you mentioned but I don't use them productively so I will keep practicing.  What difference does it make if you post before or after 10am?  Most states dont draw until 1230pm anyways.....is that just a 'lotterypost' rule?

        Predictions For All States Must Be In By 10 Am

         

        • If you want to post the same set of Pick 3 or Pick 4 numbers for every single state and province that plays the game, select "All States" in the State selection box.
        • All States predictions are for both Midday and Evening draws, where available, and must be posted before 10:00 am Eastern Time on the drawing date.
        • For multi-state games, one set of predictions may be posted for all participating states.  For example, if posting predictions for Powerball, you can't post one set of numbers for Pennsylvania and a different set of Powerball numbers for Florida.

         

        If You Do Individual States,They Must Be In Ahead Of The Cutoff Time

          Regardless of strategy, earning a living from the lottery is foolhardy, since the "house" has a ~50% edge on numbers games per play. That's steep! Consider how difficult it is for players to "beat" 21 (Black Jack) at the casino, and that's with a house advantage of less than 2% per play (an experienced card counter can improve this to a negative 1/2% or so; giving the player the edge). The lottery is many times worse than most any game in a casino.

          Ultimately it comes down to sheer luck for most all lottery games. If seeking any meaningful improvement, focus on instant games, number games that feature extra bonuses (ie. second chance drawings, using discount coupons, etc), and research the games.

          For example, in PA, typical draw games have overall payback percentage of ~50% while PA Treasure Hunt is towards 60% with a good prize tier distribution:

          5 of 5   Jackpot   1:142,506
          4 of 5   $100   1:1,140
          3 of 5   $6   1:47.5
          2 of 5   $1   1:6.2

          Statistically, still leaves a lot to be desired compared to casino games, but is an improvement over Pick 3 and Pick 4. Still worthwhile to play Pick 3 and 4, but not betting the ranch on them. Wager a few dollars per day on them, and over time, it's near certain one will hit for something eventually. Maybe even come out ahead. Playing a bundle can pay off, but for most it won't no matter how hard they try.

          With all that said, there's an extremely slim chance of finding an exploitable flaw in the computer randomizer (RNG) the lottery is using. Lotteries themselves do a lot of testing, but sometimes flaws go unnoticed for awhile. For example, there have been instances of RNGs selecting (or not) doubles / certain digits at a rate not statistically expected due to buggy software / configuration error. Find such a glitch, and one could potentially profit well, assuming one didn't get too greedy in the process...

          However, all the various RND glitches I've read about, while improving the odds, still weren't enough to fully overcome the lottery typical ~50% house advantage.

          Rambling on, but bottom line is earning a living from the lottery is near impossible unless one can exploit a flaw, or, more realistically, is extraordinarily lucky. There are far better ways of earning money. Most pro gamblers wager on casino games (tables in particular, though video poker can be profitable in some instances, such as on progressive payout machines), sports, and/or horses.

          Good luck.

            A lot of people think that because they don't know anyone personally who is making a living betting on the p-3, p-4, and casino gambling, or they believe they know the odds well enough to know no human has yet to beat house odds, means those people can't possibly exist.

            It's so ignorant to think that we know all that there is to know, and draw a line. One person in the early twenties or sooner wrote. "Let's close all the Patent offices because everything has already been invented". I'm paraphrasing of course.

            I personally knew a person who made about a million bucks finding a particular vulnerability in the Wisconsin Pick-4. But he was betting somewhere else. Also, he had a hefty bankroll. Not only that, he sent me proof via emails, the combinations of p-4, most of the time in the hundreds, before the draw. 

            Once he made his million he felt that it wouldn't be wise to get too greedy. As his wins were coming in, he was transferring his funds to a Canadian Bank.

            In the many decades I've lived through, one thing I know for sure. Based on my research, there are dedicated professional slot players who've done their homework 20 years prior. A few times I was at casinos I noticed some people never putting a coin in any machine, but what they did was observe my plays no matter how long. Some were in groups, and some were a couple. Then they jump on my machine after I leave frustrated.

            Here's a famous tip, never play slot machines that are in the center of a row, always play machines closest to the end of a row of machines. They want people who are walking by to hear and see a winning slot machine.

              I Agree! especially about pick-3 games. In the last fiscal year, the PA lottery had $311 million in pick-3 wagers and $155 million was paid out to winners. And that 50/50 payoff applies to all pick-3 games leaving plenty of money for players to share.  Many of the LP members are discussing the jackpot games where players must beat over 900,000 to 1 odds to win $100 playing PB when odds of winning $500 or $5000 playing pick-3 are much better.

                I totally agree with you all:).  I am not winning as much as many of you, but I see the numbers in my strategies almost everyday.  I even noticed the triples for SC in my numbers yesterday and the hit was 993 which was what I anticipated (a mirroring of the last digit) based on the workouts.  I just dont know which numbers to play and at what time (LOL) so I guess in that respect the knowledge is no use to me at this point but I am learning from you all everyday.  Thanks again to with your comments Amber123 and Stack47 and I see you both hitting the numbers several times a week so I know someone is making regular money doing this.  However, I was foolish to think I would be as successful as you all in a matter of weeks.  It definitely takes time to see trends and get used to the flow of things.......

                  It would be better to step into a casino and play roulette. Payouts are better.

                    Hey SergeM, thanks for your reply.  There are online sites that allow for roulette.  But I have considered that more a game of chance than any others. My ignorance im sure.   However, I do recall someone recently posting about roulette odds.  I cannot remember their name tho.....

                      Play on paper for a year. Keep track of all wins.   If u ever hit. Go out and buy a cheeseburger and fries.  If u ever hit straight go to Asian massage parlor. Get a four hand massage.   Good luck

                        First off I want to thank you all for this website.   Stategically playing the pick 3 and 4 lottery has totally changed my life.  I no longer "give" the state money in the lottery game without winning from time to time.  I started about 2 months ago using various different lottery strategies to help me with my pick 3 and pick 4 bets.  When I first began, I was making approx 500-1000 additional income in playing lottery in NC and SC.  I used the strategies as I was taught (317, 316, pyramid and mirrors) throwing all doubt to the wind.  And won both Pick 3 and pick 4 all boxed wins but i played twice a day and multiple bets on my favorite numbers:).  I had so much confidence that I would win that I swear I was so aligned with the universe I was destined to win. So I decided hey, I wanted to go for the BIG wins.  That was about 6 weeks ago.  I bought a few different software products to help and I swear ever since I have been losing MOST of the time.  I have won maybe 4 times in the last 6 weeks and small amounts (ie. $40.00)  so I come to this website and I even compared my numbers against many of the regular winners and I swear I can even win using their numbers LOL!!!!! I am beginning to think someone has put a 'root' on me!!!!! I have such low confident and usually will have 2 of the 3 numbers that hit almost everytime i play lately,  that I am conditioned to lose now.

                         

                        So, I am going to go back to the basics and see if I can re-teach myself how to pick my numbers with more confidence.  However I have  questions for you Experts and Hitters out there:

                         

                        HOW MANY OF YOU DO THIS FOR A LIVING? AND MAKE ENOUGH INCOME TO PAY YOUR BILLS?

                        IF YOU ARE OPEN TO IT, PLEASE ADVISE WHAT STRATEGIES DO YOU THINK ARE THE BEST TO USE AND WHICH ONES ARE JUNK?

                        I keep seeing triples in my workouts today (666 111 999 444 777 000 555) but usually a "mirrored' version of whatever number hits is what shows up in SC instead of a triple.  So my question is....is there a usual time when you will notice a bunch of triples coming up in your workouts, but no triple hits? 

                        Why do many of you predictors post all the same numbers for all the states? 

                        Is it better to just pick a set of numbers on Monday and just keep playing them over and over again for the week?  How do you do that anyways?

                        Why do most triples tend to hit on Sundays (at least that is what I have noticed since I started tracking it)?

                        Are there certain states that trend together?

                        Why does it seem its easier to hit Northern States or is that just me?LOL

                        How many of you believe in the laws of attraction as it pertains to your success?

                        What other advice would you give newbies like me? 

                        Are there any others who feel the way I do or who are dealing with losing streaks right now? 

                        Thank you in advance.  Many of you are friends in my head and you dont even know it yet:).  Mostly I think of you guys as celebrities and its always great to see how many of you are supportive of one another and always congratulating each other when you hit.....

                        Sounds like you should have never drifted away from your own gameplay that started in your mind.. I can tell you your mind is your best strategy.. AS far as best strategies i'll also tell you it's best you wake up everyday and refresh your mind with fresh #'s and dig deep and serch for winning numbers.. never go with your first instinct because the second or third time you tweak your number is when you'll feel most confident.. Back to where you were with your confidence.. I would not say Win 4 pays my bills but I know I made roughly over $10,000 in 2015.. In 2016 I think i've only made $200-300 so far.. just to be honest.. Triples i'd say stay away from triples as the scenario is unlikely and you can see it through stats it is not evenly spread with the other #'s as far as 24-way numbers..  I'd rather play a double # then a triple as you may can guess.. You pick a double you now ONLY have to pick another two as you have just selected a PAIR in one shot that can be lethal to your game.. turning pick 4 for that day into a 2 # game.. It's all about simplifying the game as much as possible.. GOING with your calculated gut feeling or "hypothesis" for the draw.. BELIEVE- confidence hand in hand.. Why not feel good about the #'s you are picking.. Most of the time some players play and probably dont even feel there #'s out hence = losses.. On my best days and straight wins and good box hits I always felt these were the #'s for the draw because of my strategy and calculations.. My startegy isn't very complex I just break the game down into groups.. to simplify.. Despite what we may think there aren't many ways or scenarios to deal with these #'s.. There are only #'s from 0-9 (10#'s).. Most of the time you can eliminate the 0  its up to you.. There's only even and odd #'s.. It can only show up 2 evens and 2 odds 3 odds 1 even 3 even 1 odd.. Pick your #'s in pairs.. Balance out your sums based on a few previous draws.. they do tend to stick around each other about 2-3 digits.. stay away from higher sums as 9999 hasn't hit in over 12 years i heard.. Rarely the sum is over 28 or 29.. SO it shows you alot of combs can be eliminaed.. Hope I helped take it from there

                        Creativity..

                          Keyword there being "vulnerability". Barring that, unless one is extraordinarily lucky, making bank on the lottery is near impossible.

                          Some claim to make money on the lottery, but few really do when factoring in all their play. A 50% house advantage is huge. Sure, one can use various strategies to eliminate and/or focus on various numbers, combos, etc. For example, tracking length of time between triples appearing for determining when to play them. Works for some, and maybe for awhile. However, long-term, every lottery strategy, with the exception of exploiting flaws in the game (ie. faulty RNG) will come up significantly short.

                          The following in Stack47's post is proof-positive of the huge house advantage on Pick 3 / 4 games: "In the last fiscal year, the PA lottery had $311 million in pick-3 wagers and $155 million was paid out to winners." Nearly exactly 50%...

                          What's more amazing about that stat is many players wager on triples resulting in large number of payouts, and yet the overall payout was still around 50%. Triples can be expected, on average, every 100 Pick-3 draws, and many players aim for them, but in doing so tend to wager a lot; more than many of them realize. Ie. $5 per draw ($0.50 each) to cover all triples is $500 over the course of 100 draws. Even if a player is lucky and hits after just 50 draws, they're at break-even; not terrible when it comes to playing the lottery, but still not a profit.

                          Keep in mind that large-scale legalized government sanctioned lotteries began over 40 years ago. If any systems worked (other than exploiting drawing machine flaws, which isn't a system per se), they'd be well documented by now. Also, lotteries would have responded with adjustments to the games much like casinos have with 21 (Black Jack)  due to card counting. In PA, Pick 3 and 4 game implementation and prize structure are basically the same as 25+ years ago.

                          There's much confirmation bias here leading one to believe that lottery systems work, players often come out ahead, etc. Keeping it real. Again, good luck.

                            First off I want to thank you all for this website.   Stategically playing the pick 3 and 4 lottery has totally changed my life.  I no longer "give" the state money in the lottery game without winning from time to time.  I started about 2 months ago using various different lottery strategies to help me with my pick 3 and pick 4 bets.  When I first began, I was making approx 500-1000 additional income in playing lottery in NC and SC.  I used the strategies as I was taught (317, 316, pyramid and mirrors) throwing all doubt to the wind.  And won both Pick 3 and pick 4 all boxed wins but i played twice a day and multiple bets on my favorite numbers:).  I had so much confidence that I would win that I swear I was so aligned with the universe I was destined to win. So I decided hey, I wanted to go for the BIG wins.  That was about 6 weeks ago.  I bought a few different software products to help and I swear ever since I have been losing MOST of the time.  I have won maybe 4 times in the last 6 weeks and small amounts (ie. $40.00)  so I come to this website and I even compared my numbers against many of the regular winners and I swear I can even win using their numbers LOL!!!!! I am beginning to think someone has put a 'root' on me!!!!! I have such low confident and usually will have 2 of the 3 numbers that hit almost everytime i play lately,  that I am conditioned to lose now.

                             

                            So, I am going to go back to the basics and see if I can re-teach myself how to pick my numbers with more confidence.  However I have  questions for you Experts and Hitters out there:

                             

                            HOW MANY OF YOU DO THIS FOR A LIVING? AND MAKE ENOUGH INCOME TO PAY YOUR BILLS?

                            IF YOU ARE OPEN TO IT, PLEASE ADVISE WHAT STRATEGIES DO YOU THINK ARE THE BEST TO USE AND WHICH ONES ARE JUNK?

                            I keep seeing triples in my workouts today (666 111 999 444 777 000 555) but usually a "mirrored' version of whatever number hits is what shows up in SC instead of a triple.  So my question is....is there a usual time when you will notice a bunch of triples coming up in your workouts, but no triple hits? 

                            Why do many of you predictors post all the same numbers for all the states? 

                            Is it better to just pick a set of numbers on Monday and just keep playing them over and over again for the week?  How do you do that anyways?

                            Why do most triples tend to hit on Sundays (at least that is what I have noticed since I started tracking it)?

                            Are there certain states that trend together?

                            Why does it seem its easier to hit Northern States or is that just me?LOL

                            How many of you believe in the laws of attraction as it pertains to your success?

                            What other advice would you give newbies like me? 

                            Are there any others who feel the way I do or who are dealing with losing streaks right now? 

                            Thank you in advance.  Many of you are friends in my head and you dont even know it yet:).  Mostly I think of you guys as celebrities and its always great to see how many of you are supportive of one another and always congratulating each other when you hit.....

                            Seriously Gwiz- You could have upgraded to Platinum Status here on LP instead of investing your money in all that software which turns out to be part of your frustration. This outfit does all the heavy lifting & thinking for you G- take advantage of it. Bench that software.

                             That's my two cents.  Peace.

                            People who say it cannot be done should not interrupt those who are doing it- George Bernard Shaw.

                              I Agree!  Ask any so-called expert here or ANYONE with a so-called system to demonstrate and prepare yourself for the deafening silence, or collection of excuses as to why they can't.  Especially, the one's who say they have a system, but when asked for directions, they give you a Donald Trump-like "explanation" or say that you have to use your "imagination or dreams" to pick the numbers. Roll Eyes

                               

                              And the Law of Attraction is utter and complete nonsense.  I really wish that dark ages thinking would go away.
