    I think I'd use the discussion forum because of the amount of info available there. Thanks.

        None of those.

        Look at the Prize Ratio in particular noting how much has been spent for a given Lotto Game Type then compare it with what is achieved by Random Selections. In the thread Interpreting Prediction Statistics I have given the range for spending $600 and $5000 using Random Selections for Pick3.

        In due course I will post examples for Pick 4.

        If the results fall within the ambit achieved by random selections then you can't claim to have bettered them.

          I didn't vote, although I tend to agree with the Profit option.

          But Todd has filter options for specific games and players which gives a truer image of results.

          A lucky hit in a jackpot game doesn't necessarily make you a good predictor.

          Posted 4/6:  IL Pick 3 midday and evening until they hit:  555, 347 (str8).

              Hopefully this poll doesn't foster the idea that people should use either the forum or the predictions board.  They are designed as complementary tools that are best used together.  A good player learns the strengths and abilities of both tools and combines them to his/her advantage.

               

              Check the State Lottery Report Card
              What grade did your lottery earn?

                HIGH 5 TODD, HIGH 5.

                I believe it's like this.This is how I see it, when you are in the basement of a bank the vault is usually in the very back. To open the vault it takes just one key, (in the lottery the winning number). But to get to that one key (the winning number) you have to have the right tools, the right lottery tools, at least 2 or 3 (most lock combinations are at least 3 numbers) when you use these tools together they will open the entrance door to the vault. When you have the winning number that is your key to the vault. !$!$ Now get the goods and scram. :-)

                    Choosing random selections is not rocket science. Put together 10 to 20 selections in a defined systematic order and it is possible to get hits.

                      i know somebody that buys a quick pick 3 digit everday one for the midday and one for evening. been playing them for years she won, nada, zip, zilch, nuthing. If she had picked any other number like a birth date or something of that nature she would have won about ten times. When i see her and ask did she win on here quick pic she says no but my daughters birtday hit my son, husband etc etc. When i ask why don't you play some of the family numbers she say i perfer quick picks. my reply prefer them to what loosing money and sulking because one of your personal numbers hit. She replys a quick pick is as good as any other number. Yea i replied if it wins. For the life of me i can see why people buy these things most of them favor the house many of them contain 2 numbers from the last draw and although sometimes two numbers will come in the next draw very rarely will the third number be there for the win.

                      Big John says. You don't hit the number. The number hits you!!!!

                        I'm sure I'm missing something here. I don't disagree with either statement but I can't see the connection between them since the second is not an elaboration on the first.

                          To add to the below posting I generally create numbers that hit
                          most frequently which contains the lowest digit. Depending on
                          the amount of plays you are creating I balance the amount of numbers with
                          the lowest digit contained in a number. If I were doing ten plays
                          I would have 3 with digit 0, 3 with digit 1, 2 with digit 2,
                          1 with digit3 and 1 that contains a 4 or higher with the lowest
                          digit.
                           at the bottom of the page you will see the combos. As you see the higher
                          you go in your combos the fewer numbers there are that contain the
                          lowest digit.

                          These selections are chosen with no data research. Only from what
                          you see here as I posted it under the title.

                            Couple of good points in here.

                            If you have 1 - 2 favorite digits for your pick, then that is the time to use a RNG and I  don't mean your computer RNG.

                            Good source is random .com which is based on atmospheric noise, or if you have access to Cesium 21, it has the most random half-life of any radioative materials or anthing that I've heard of.

                             Handle with care though...lol

                              I still don't see the connection.

                              Let me spell it out to you. If you are doing something systematic it is not random. It is the opposite of random. Randomness as in emulating the results of physical balls is not easily achieved and certainly not by your standard text book bit of code. The numbers you are suggesting would not be random.

                              I'm not at this stage advocating that a Pick 3 Player use Random Selections. I know from my experience with the Pick 6 and PowerBall games that Random Selections is a formidable adversary and most Systems on the market do not beat it. I'm quite happy to test anyones' system if they beg to differ.

                              The information I gave on the results of running Pick 3 using RANDOM SELECTIONS in the Enterpreting Prediction Statistics thread was to thwart any jumping up and down by winners who thought the were doing better than RANDOM SELECTIONS. The wide divergence in the results I found interesting and I'm sure a few others did too.

                              I'm currently working on Pick 4 which I hope will have a tighter set of results. You may care to note a difference in style. Instead of proclaiming I have the best system in the world I set up a mechanism for testing whatever I do and then look at how the opposition is doing ie Random Selections.
