    Yes, but the only system that works is buying all the possible number combinations. Just don't lose the ticket.


    Okay, now I believe you can predict lottery numbers

      As far as I know, that has only been tried once and that was some years back in the Virgina lottery when the cash value was greater than the odds of winning.  Since then a lot of states have create guide lines which makes it impossible for any group to control enough machines long enough to play all the possible combinations.  There was a group in Canada that claimed 1:3 odds of winning the jackpot a 649 games with a 300,000 combinations, but I think they might have been running a scam to get lotteries players to invest in their pool.

        That's the DUMBEST and MOST expensive system to use when there other strategies that work for much less.

          There is no such system "at this time. "

            And there never will be because no one could use it due to the cost of playing the numbers.

              There is one way to reduce the odds based on historical trends. But, the odds are still high and way against the player. We can discuss, if you want.

                Playing all the numbers like Thomas Covenant mentioned

                is a sure way to win but impossible to do.An alternative and less expensive way of playing the numbers does exist in many forms some work better than others and some not at all.The strategies I'm working on

                require anywhere from 5 to 20 combinations.

                  There is little theoretical correlation between a number set drawn today and 100 draws ago.  However, there is some empirical correlation between a set drawn today and the last 5-10 draws. The most obvious is the fact that almost never do 3 or more numbers repeat from draw to draw. There are about 25 other observations of this general nature which can be utilized in this manner and I continue to work on such a system. Even so, you might reduce the odds from 1 in 15,000,000 to 1 in 5,000,000 and there are still no guarantees.

                  Going for lower level wins in the Pick 6 , like 5/6 or 4/6, is not really worth the effort which the lotteries know.

                    To DrBLW,

                    How did you calculate your odds reduction after applying your general observations. I have a similar system that look at gaps, sums, ranges, general positions of numbers and etc and best improvement I've calculated in a 649 game is 1:14M to ~1:11M.  I wrote a little loop in GWBasic which print all the possible combinations and only count the ones within preset parameters which takes a while.

                      I would play some quick picks, but if I pick numbers, I would tend to play due numbers that haven't come up for the longest time.

                      Smart lottery winners form trust to claim their winnings.  They send an attorney to the lottery headquarters to claim the prize in trust, so that ONLY the name of the trust is revealed.  And they tell NO ONE, especially relatives.

                      If you ever win a lottery and you are single, the only person you should ever marry is someone who was truly in love with you BEFORE you won the jackpot!
