Can anyone recommend a lottery system for a novice lottery enthusiast? I have engaged in a few different systems but I have not had satisfactory or even consistent results. Winning a pick 5 or pick 6 is going to take work and effort which I don't lack. However lately I have been on a terrible inconsistent losing streak. I wheel my numbers but my pool size is too large and make it difficult for wheeling on a small budget. Any advice, help or guidance would be greatly appreciated.

    Play only amounts you can afford tp lose and expect to lose.

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

      Thanks... RJOh, I never play more than what I am comfortable with. However I can increase my budget by trapping more numbers in my previous drawings. I used to be able to hit 3 to 4 numbers consistently, that way I always made my money back. My analysis of numbers has grown but I wonder if I am over analyzing it because I haven't won since I expanded. I use a program called Lotto Pro to capture numbers and give some basic statistics to help select numbers but I fear I may not be using the program correctly.

        The odds of those big games will make it nearly impossible to win the JP, or at best make a regular income. I would suggest starting with something like the pick 3 game. Once you dabble in the pick-3 games for a few months, and realize how difficult it is to beat 1 in a 1,000 odds, you'll be convinced you're wasting your time playing the big games.

        The p-3 has 1 in 1,000 odds for a straight win. Our Fantasy Five game which has 36 numbers to choose, has about a 1 in 376,000 odds of winning the JP with one ticket purchase. Now imagine a pick-3 game that is 376 times harder to win.

        The above example was from a game that wasn't even in the millions to 1 odds. The Florida lotto game is about 23 million to 1. That's a pick 3 game that is 23,000 times harder to win. 

        Do you really want me to do the PB game comparison? Green laugh

          I had the same problem, the winning combinations I picked were always among the first ten or so I picked whether I picked ten or fifty so now I only pick 10 or so.  Playing more combinations never covered the cost of playing more combinations.

            Thats a great point. I just like so many of the numbers. hard to choose a few. always feel I am leaving something out.

              Lol... I am well aware of the odds! Wink My point was merely that I do try to narrow the odds by selecting a group of numbers that are usally in the next drawing. I sometimes capture 3,4, and 5 numbers in a pick 5 and pick 6 game. Of course I would like to win the jackpot but winning consistently is a goal. 

              I don't really know much about the pick 3 or pick 4, always seem a bit complicated and costly. Ill look into it and see what I can learn about it. Any advice or guidance you can give. I use a program called lotto pro.

                  Well, he said he was doing very poorly using the software, so it's not much of an advertisement! Wink
