There seem to be a number of systems that claim to improve the odds of winning lottery prizes more often. Has anyone tried any of them? Share your results if you did.

The numbers are completely random, so it may be better to use quick pick. Some people use astrology, while others use family members ages and birthdays. I just use quick pick whenever I buy a lottery ticket. (I only buy when the jackpot is huge, and only one ticket at that.)

I have used family birthdays, ages, house or street numbers, the date of the draw, the amount of the prize..even numbers from dreams and those that show up randomly in my life.
Currently using, my age, boyfriends age, date of birth, house number, number of children, lucky number.
got my fingers's 50 million tonight.!
for the record..i don't call it gambling...
it's called paying the idiot tax...

I've tried a few of them with extremely mild results.
They were obtained by using some of the wheeling systems.

Being that the ODDS of winning are so high and that they are meant to be random,you can sift through the data all you want and look for anomalies.

Your still subject to the odds. So good luck.

Enjoy paying the Idiot tax.

Whats kind of cool is that some state lottery outfits provide you with past results in easy to work with formats so if you have some computer skills you could quite easily manipulate the data to create a system for picking of your own. I know VA does it, not sure which other states provide past pick data however.

The numbers are completly random so there is no real trick to winning the lottery.

When I do play the lottery I use the quick pick option because it chooses my numbers at random.

I have heard of people using birthdays,birthdays of loved oned, childhood adresses, and I even know a person who plays every week and uses the same numbers everytime....

Unfortunatly there is no trick to winning. Just like a casino the odds are in the houses favor. Chances are the state will make more on lottery sales then they give away....

Believe me, if there was a trick some one would have found it by now and the state would change the system so that trick no longer works.

Well, there may be one trick... There is a woman in South Charlston who won the lottery 5 times... Perphas if you take her with you....

Seriously though, it is just luck of the draw and the draw is completly random.

I would much rather lose my money at a casino where at least they have flashing lights, free cokes and coffee, women in short dresses, and the illusion that you are having fun!
That being said.....

I alway pick 48 or 23 as a power ball number. I have won $100 bucks on the 23.

Texas Holdem on line is my forte. Krysupor on most sites.

It is random, there is no way of knowing the numbers. I pick some low numbers around 03 01 20. I dont get alot though, like what someone else said on here, only when there is a huge jackpot.

I like ADs term for the lottery "idiot tax"

Thankfully some of our lottery money goes to a state college education fund. That's a good enough rationalization to buy a few chances a week.

Same with ours, and it keeps the dream alive, hehe...

Our state (FL) does post all past results, and even gives you metrics, etc.... not that it helps any...but you could play statistical trends and win often on small amounts, i.e. 3 or 4 numbers...

I've actually had 4 numbers on 3 different occasions (pays out about $100)...but that's the most I've ever got. My mother got 5 numbers once (a few grand)....

I only buy about 3 tickets a month....

Lottery wheeling can help increase chances but requires some ticket work and fixed weekly budget like for weekly re-runnings.

Personally I believe the only way of increasing your odds is to buy more tickets! - The way I do this is to go in on an impromptu syndicate - friends and family that sort of thing, one ticket ='s 1 share of the overall prize, the more tickets the higher the odds!

Another one is to use the same set of numbers each time - but as the draw is random that does nothing for your odds.

I've looked into it online but I really think they don't do anything to increase your odds. Quick Pick or playing a variation of family member birthdays is what I do.

there is a game here called Pick Three.

I do not play myself, but a co-worker explained this a year ago.

I'll do my best to remember the exact #'s...I will prolly not get it exact.

Pick 3 thats 000-999 1000:1 odds

He buys the .50 tickets $50 at a time thats an even 100 tickets.

It pays off with $500 if you win.

So unless I'm missing something here, its as good of odds as any Vegas game.

That reduces it to 1 in 10 chance to win, and if you start with the $500 to begin with, that gives you ten times to try....most think they can win at least one time out of ten, and if you do better, say win 2 times maybe 3 out of ten, you just padded your playing it out longer, was his theory, that he could win more over time than chase the BIG ONE.

The numbers add up and make sence to me, but I'm sure I am missing a key piece of this story.
