i would go 23 mega millions quick picks, and then 22 lotto south quick picks.

I've redone my website.  Go to www.dr-ew.com.  I kept a lot of the old stuff, and I've added some new stuff.  Look for more new stuff in the coming weeks.

    LOL.....Thanks DoctorEw220 but I guess I was not clear enough. 

    We play 55 tickets for each individual drawing.  Not combined.  So we buy 55 tickets for the Tuesday and Friday Mega Millions drawing (110 total), and 55 tickets for the Wednesday and Saturday Lotto South drawing(110 total).

    My question was not how you would divide up the tickets, but what method or system would you use to select the numbers.  Remember we have tried quick picks, Gail Howard, Steve Player and other systems and they have not worked as well as we had hoped thus far.

    Thanks,

    John

        I would cover ALL of the numbers at least once, then play the balance as QPs.... for Mega, cover all of the megaballs...

        Playing more than one ticket per game is betting against yourself.

          Hypersoniq and Fast Eddie,

          Thanks very much for your input.  The method you are describing we have already tried.  It is in the Atwood book "The Lottery Solution".  In my opinion it does not work any better than any other method.  Having tried so many systems and having spent so many dollars buying tickets, it seems that systems do one of two things.  They either cover ALL the numbers very poorly, or overkill a small sample or portion of the number field. 

          Both methods have their pros and cons obviously.  Sure, playing the method you describe, it is an exciting feeling to know that you are playing all the numbers.  But tell me, how many times have either of you had 3 or more of the winning numbers in the same line?  Most of the time you will get one, two and every once in a while, 3 numbers together.  I have yet to get more than 3 together using this method.

          With the small portion method you have to capture at least 5 or all 6 of the winning numbers in your wheel to make it worth while.  I've won 5 of 6 three times using this method, but still I want a system that will win more regularly.  For those that wheel numbers, how many times have you gotten only 3, 2, 1, or none of the numbers?  Too often.

          I am looking for a system that does both.  Covers all the numbers, but not so weakly that the best you do is get 2 of the winning numbers together.

          Any ideas anyone??

          Thanks,

          John  -  LA

            I would keep wheeling and have patience...dventually u will hit..take everyone's numbers and wheel them..try to use the ones that are hot the most and just fill in with the others..It may take a year but dventually u will hit..also use some sort of tracking method or software.

            If you know your number is going to hit, have patience and then KILL IT!

            You never know when you will get another hit.

              Most of the time I play 1 ticket... on my spreadsheet, I generate 1 pick from 10 weighted statistical components. Had I played all 11 lines over the history of PB with the current matrix (5/52 + 1/42) I would have spent $2,211 so far and won just over $6,000... but hindsight is always 20/20 and I can't justify spending $11 per draw.

              Covering all of the numbers doesn't have to be done thinly... it only takes 11 lines to cover all 52 white balls of MM... you have the ability to either do this 5x per draw or to cover most of the numbers and use a few lines as "garbage collection" just to cover all of them at least once (leaving 44 lines to use any other way).

              A hybrid system could cover the profiles of past winners (balance of even/odd, popular sums, mix of hot/cold/warm, etc...) while also covering a few fringe scenarios (all high, all low, decade clusters) and having a few lines to use as a catch-all for numbers not used in the bulk of the system.

              good luck. :-)

                Its just the perfect time.My system is about to be finished after a week or less.And it should satisfy your need.Tell me what lottery you play and lets just have some "cooperation".

                  covering all the numbers will get you something, but if you are playing to win the jackpot, then that isn't a good idea because you are actually reducing your chances of winning the jackpot, depending on how you play those numbers.

                    Do your homework...You need the know the recent history to predict the future..Use a trend anaylsis for the last 50 or so draws, look at the Hot/Cold and sum totals avgs..If you think right, you should become a millionare like myself from using the same method. GOOD LUCK !!!!

                      Sounds like you have all the information you need to develop a winning strategy and $220/wk to try it.  You just need to do your home work.  Simulate some of the strategies you've read about and pick the ones that have preformed the best.  Unless they are running a lottery pool, most players have no reason to test such strategies, they don't think they can afford them even if they do dventually payoff.

                        I disagree that he should just do his homework.

                        Lottery pool is a very potential thing to do.As a student,he has done enough to be able to win $220wk with a proper strategy supporting.Thats the only problem he has.

                          here's an idea.  try playing however you want, but get the tickets for 2 draws.

                            Getting your friends to give you $220/wk to buy lottery tickets for a lottery pool is not the same as winning $220/wk playing the lotteries unless you are putting the money in your pocket instead of buying lottery tickets.

                              yeah.  getting your friends to give you $220/week is scamming them out of their money unless you actually buy the tickets.  although i do not condone spending that much on lottery tickets, pocketing their money is not the right idea either.  those people expect to purchase lottery tickets, and that is what you should give them.
