Do you believe that you can increase your chances?

If, yes, what have you found to get a better result than the expected payout average?

For all kind of games? Post your foundation with proof. Cool

    I don't believe so. Mathematically it's impossible to truly increase your chances unless you literally plan to spend thousands and even then, it depends on the game your choosing to play.

    When it comes to Mega or PB, I've never had a single thought that I could increase any remote chance through buying more tickets. There's just too many numbers there...

      People who have won more than one jackpot (draw game or scratch off).  They used some of the winnings to buy more tickets and won more money.  Melvin, the retired postal worker in Va, lady in SC who won several Cash 5 jackpots, the Tx lady Joan who lives in NV are all proof. 

      The more tickets you buy the better your chances of winning.  The first win, I think is luck, persistence.  Once you win you can again.

      Most people, myself included, aren't disciplined enough to focus on just ONE game to get that first win.

        If you buy tickets in "Can't lose" states you can increase your chances by a lot!

          I found a case with mathematics and history, where a chance is increased but playing it, doesn't reach break even. The case is known and I never read it on LP or elsewhere.

            You think PB or MM. No, there may be more winners, but probably just will not be you. You read garbage.

              Increasing the chances doesn't necessary mean that you go home with a jackpot or price money.

              Buying more tickets? Yes, again there a lot of garbage has been written in the forums. Yes, one combinations is one chance and two different combinations give two chances.

                You can change and focus on one game if you really want to. I suppose that you don't want to.

                  For Pick 3 I have hit several times for $500 playing numbers based on my birthday. I'm currently testing a method of using numbers based in Sums and Root Sums after researching past draw history with my state lottery. I'm positive I'll hit with more consistency.

                    I suppose you are correct.  There are a lot of games with different odds available.  The tendency seems to be not to limit oneself.  Play several games and hope you get lucky at one.  I don't personally know anyone who only plays one game on a regular basis.

                      Sums and root are only filters to create groups of combinations.

                        When the Florida 5/26 game was in play, the simple act of playing all past winning combinations would have resulted in a number of jackpot wins until there were so many past draws the wins were no longer profitable.

                        Anyone with the FL 5/26 draw history and the right software can pretty much verify this by checking how often the same quads and quints were drawn, (see GH 9 Chart)

                          My program can do that but I don't have the history. 5/26 is a very small game compared to our 5/50 + soon 2/12 for 2.50 euros.
