You're welcome and welcome to The Lottery Post.
I wouldn't say you did "terribly". You did what 99.99% of all players do. Everybody loses almost every time they play.
Last night one lucky player won $211,019 playing FF5, but that was a fluke. It was a very lucky fluke for the player who bought the winning ticket. I've played the lottery for years and only won small prizes. Yesterday I matched 3 numbers and won $9.50. The last time I won money prior to last night was in September when I won $10.50. So I'm just like everybody else.
I haven't posted in this thread for a while because I was running out of things to say. It got so bad that I started posting about junk nobody cares about like how big was the total take for the Florida Lottery. Who cares about that?? And prior to your post, I was sure that there was only one other player besides me reading and posting here. So thanks for posting.
Here's something that maybe some players can use to help them win a few bucks:
It's mid-November and the following six numbers have yet to be drawn this month; 7, 9, 16, 22, 29 & 31 so you might want to play them.
The reason why you might want to play them is simple - In most months, all 36 of FF5's numbers will be drawn at least once. There have been just three months this year when a number had zero hits. In each of those three months, only one number sat out the entire month. #7 has been missing for a long time - it's skipped the last 47 drawings.
The number with the most hits this month is #26 with 5 hits already. Could be it's on it's way towards having an 8 hit month. (Right now, it has the best chance of getting to 8 hits in November) Usually the top hitter of any month has 8 or 9 hits. A number with ten hits in one month is a whopper. There have been only two months this year where one number had 10/11hits. #15 had 10 hits in April and #24 had 11 hits in June. But it's going to happen, maybe it wont be #26, but one number will end November with 8 hits. How do I know that? Because history tells me it's so. Sure, there have been a some months in FF5's entire history where four, five or six numbers had 7 hits each and no number got to 8 hits. But that's rare.
Here's another useful piece of info; there are 124,848 3 odd/2 even combos and 124,848 2 odd/3 even combos out of the total 376,992 possible FF5 combo's which represents 66% of all combo's. Therefore I usually play lines with 3 odd/2 even or 2 odd/3 even. Good luck to you , be patient and play smart. One other thing I should mention and that's in all the years I've played the lottery, I've never bet over my head. I bet with my head, not over it. G5
