I come here daily to check everybody's picks, but am finding it so frustrating to hear the accolades to one member or another who has picked a box hit from 80 to 100+ predictions for all states or even a single state.  Who here bets that way???  This type of betting will run you into the poorhouse.  Check the profit on your selectors before you spend your hard-earned money.

The KEY here is profit, not winning.  If you can't win in a handful of picks for that drawing in that state, it's not going to happen.  Call me a pariah, but that's the way I see it.  I lose every day, but I win ALMOST often enough to make it fun and I'm only spending $5.00 a day....so there's no grief.

I'm not a winning lottery player by any means, but I'm looking out for those who might be spending too much money on a losing approach.

I would ask all responsible and effective lottery number pickers to keep this in mind...your best picks are the BEST.

I'm sorry, but I had to vent here for the regular folks out there.

    I'm hardly ever play pick 3 but I couldn't agree with you more.  I could as well throw out 100 #s and I'm sure I'll get some box / strt hits on some states.

      Ditto! RickG. Hope they listen to you.



      A bunch of numbers like that, is a complete "turn-off" to me. When I open the msg and see so many, I don't even bother to look through them.



      Another thing, if I could play in all 33 states at one time, I'd probably open the messages that refer to "All States".



      Oh, well.

          Jeeves, Old hank, Bryan...thanks for your support.  Bryan, that's what I always liked about your picks...you're putting the best that you can think of, win or lose, a few picks and may the number come in the way you predicted it...we can all deal with a few bucks loss, but when you get over a certain amount I have problems with it as a "gambler".

          Thanks again guys!

            Rick,

            I do agree with you.  When I see a bunch of numbers,  I do not pay any attention to them.  sometimes they do have a hit.  Any one who list a bunch of numbers will hit somewhere most of the time

            Jazzy Jasper list few numbers and most of the time they are straight some where.  We all should follow him,  by limiting the numbers we give out.

                  Hi Rick

                  Since I am the guilty party who has been posting 80+ numbers, I figured I'd try to explain why. I asumed that the people that visit this forum are number players.And most number players have their own number systems.I thought they would be comparing their workouts to mine to see if anything matched. Thats what I do. I will cut back the amount of numbers I post.

                        Libra,

                        Keep doing what you are doing.  I for one compare my numbers to others.  I also post a lot of numbers for my state.  Sometimes I only post a few numbers.  It just depends on how they are running.

                        I took a poll awhile back and the responses I got were that more numbers were better.  Lucky took a poll and the responses were more numbers were better. 

                        We all differ in opinions.  That is what makes this site so great.  Do what you feel comfortable about doing.  If they don't want to look at your numbers, they don't have to click on it.  Most of these people are number players themselves and have some kind of system.............and when we post numbers, it acts like a check and balance system.

                        Have a good Holiday weekend.

                        Sandy

                            Libra Dave you are not the only guilty person of predicting alot of numbers; Lucky is the biggest abuser of this, he post almost 200 numbers a day. Lucky is becoming a real joke! I really believe Lucky is the person Rick is talking about!

                             

                            I personally think JAZZY JASPER is the best, he post more hits then Lucky and with less numbers.Why don't you and Lucky just try to post less numbers?

                             

                            Rick i agree with you a 100 percent, its about time someone stood up to the pre- Madonna's in this forum!!!!!

                             

                            If people in this forum want to see how good predictors handle themselves; i suggest they goto color=#0000ffhttp://www.4lottous.com/ and log onto Rick G's Illinois Forum, you will be surprised.

                             


                            Thank you Rick G. for having the courage to stand up to the so called elite predictors!!!!!

                               My favorite post are the one's that are for individual states and the person explains a little bit about how they came up with the choices. It would be great if they would sometimes point out their system or systems so we could study them and learn. Even if it's the good old darts system.  Hey...if it works. Most people would like to learn how to throw their own darts...dventually. 

                                Most of these post are short on (forum discussion) and long on numbers.  There should be.... at least a balance between the amount of numbers and the discussion or reasoning  behind them. This way no one would ever "miss"=understand them again. 

                                Makes it a little more understandable, colorful, and entertaining too!
