Hello all. I've been doing some thinking and I do wonder.. Does anyone think the lottery Gods look at forums like these and see our methods?  I was wondering if it's possible that they see and know our methods so they can switch it up to limit the amount of winners? I'm also wondering if everyone played a certain number because they all came to the same conclusion about the given method, would the lottery folks purposely pick a number out of line with your method to keep the rig going?.. Or.. Is the "rig" the method in & of itself. I've been thinking...

    I can see where you're coming from, but that would limit communication and coherence, which I believe can help manifest. If a lottery drawing is truly random, it's impossible to predict. That being said, when the law of averages and randomness are stretched, that's where I'll play. I do believe the lotteries that have delays between cut off and draw time time, could use that time to determine any high pay numbers based on ticket sales, and pre-draw past it....Thud

      In a truly random game like PB & MM, there's no way for anyone to change the outcome of the numbers based on sales. The lottery can't tell one or more balls not to get picked.

      You just need to find something else to think about.

        There are as many ways to pick your numbers as there are possible combinations so sharing them is as confusing as trying to pick a winner and in the overall scheme of thing no harm is done and winning remains as hard as ever. Wink

            Maybe I should've been clearer but your snarkiness that I "need to find something else to think about" isn't needed or called for. Thank you guys for your replies but I was meaning the smaller lotteries. I don't play lotteries like the MM or PB anymore. I only play the Pick 3, 4, & 5  ...and the methods have worked in the past. So I was wondering if they would catch on, that's all. If you think my post is unrealistic, simply don't answer and keep it pushing. I was just wondering if anyone wondered this as well..

              It would only be foolish if the lottery is not actually random and if the lottery officials do in fact take in all of our strategies/methods and take them into consideration when drawing the results.. now this would mean the lottery is not random and are playing us players.. but I guess to feed into your question it would be pretty easy for lottery officials to visit lotterypost and create algorithms to draws to go against what players most likely will pick.. how they would do this I dont know.. just a theory not saying this could even be true.. but Im pretty sure the methods and systems seen here on LP vary so much that it should be nearly impossible to do so.. One thing that is a given every draw is that somebody has to win.. they couldn't dodge all players.. maybe it is wise in theory to incorporate the fact one should play the least expected numbers that mindset strangely actually has worked for me in the past.. that should solve the problems to your question

                Try different things to see what works for you.

                As for "everyone playing a certain number" SC has limits. 

                The info below is for Pick 3

                "2. SCEL has established an aggregate liability limit of three and one half million dollars ($3,500,000.00) per draw on any set of numbers regardless of the play type option(s) selected. This liability limit may be increased by the Executive Director without notice or formal amendment to these rules as authorized by the South Carolina Lottery Board of Commissioners. As provided in the Game Specifications, the selection of a given set of numbers will be closed out for the draw when it is determined the liability limit has been met for that set of numbers. When numbers are no longer available for selection in a draw cycle, the terminal will inform the retailer. SCEL will not allow a wager in excess of the loss limit"

                Good luck :)

                  This board is probably monitored by some lottery officials but I don't think they're worried about anybody 'cracking the code'.

                  As zephbe said, a number will ge locked- 911 is common on 911 for example. That's because there is a ceiling on payouts.

                  Illinois used to have no big jackpots going on Thursdays. It was mentioned on this board. Someone waved a magic wand and the lotto that used to be M-W-SA was moved to M-TH-SA.

                  Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                  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.

                    Nope! 

                    The casino's in Las Vegas have never worried about any gambling books ever written on how to beat the house so why should Lottery Officials care for lotto books or any methods shared here?

                      "You can't wage these combinations", told by the clerk. 

                      Why? this combination is sold out, his response.

                      I was perplexed, and start having doubts about the premise of the game, thanks for the liability limit info.
