Default What I've learned in two decades of lottery play,

Best bets for lottery, knowing first and foremost...

There is no such thing as a winning lottery system (I have them all, Ken Silver, Gail Howard, Steve Player, et al, etc.).

But there is MATH: tracking, probability, regression, wheeling, and with a bit of Magic (luck?) can play smarter.

Straight bets are hard, so you learned the power of the box/back-up play, and with wheels and double digits, which in Ohio are close to a 25% draw is easier to collect, IF, one doesn't need to, nor spends what they can't afford to lose.

I do not touch scratch off tickets, would rather throw money out my window. Also, no Keno, nor progressives...Pick 3, Pick 4 and in OH, Rolling Cash 5 (5 of 39)...all the rest are for suckers.

I have a 10 dollar a day budget for Rolling Cash 5, although, I may go 20 days into the month without a play, very chart oriented and although I have yet to win the 100k, I often have 4 numbers wheeled for 300 dollars each, so a good play might yield 1200 to 1500 for a 30 dollar play.

With Pick 3, double digits are my bread and butter, 11, 66 and 22 have done very well for me, an added bonus for Ohio players is we can play only 2 digits, so a 66x, 6x6, x66 play of 1.50 pays 25 if it comes in...that allows for about 15 draws, with about 3 or 4 double digits drawn.

Anyhow, I play it as a fun hobby/ other words, as long as it pays for itself, and once in awhile gives me some moolah, it remains fun and entertaining. I learned long ago, not to get greedy, or to think that I know anything about beating the lottery...HA!

But a few Xtra thousand dollars a year from a hobby, keeps me in the game.


P.S. In MO, I would track Show Me Cash mostly, it appears to be a good game to play.

So, I took a quick gander and saw in MO for the last 3 months, no single digits were drawn in the Show Me Cash Game for 8 times in Jan., 8 times in Feb., 9 in March, and so far 5 in April.

No 30's were drawn 7 times in Jan., 6 times in Feb., 9 times Mar., and so far only 2 times in April, so my attention would be on wheeling numbers up to 29, and maybe something like one single digit and the rest up to 29 or 2 single digits up to 29. Keep a lookout.

Made the mistake of playing some numbers straight that have NEVER appeared, then on the one day did not play the number it appears!!!

I had more success playing double numbers with ALL options covered in boxed format. Nowadays, I just watch the BIG drawings and when they get really crazy, I'll buy a ticket.

You could do well with your subscription service. A hat-tip to you sir!
