No, I don't think so.

When I play a system that uses all bonus balls, I most definitely do NOT use the same "first 5" numbers on each ticket.  I use an abbreviated wheel.  Here's an excellent wheel for Hot Lotto.  It's a 2 if 2 of 19 wheel that is highly balanced, using each of the 19 numbers you choose 5 times each.  It has 19 lines, making it perfect for playing each bonus number once.

You would use all bonus numbers so that you are guaranteed to have a bonus number winner in your set of tickets, and hopefully you have some "first 5" matches to go along with it.  Also, if you happen to match all 5 numbers on one ticket, it ensures that you have at least a pretty good chance of winning the jackpot too. 

In the case of Hot Lotto, if you match the 5 five numbers, the strategy gives you a 1-in-19 shot at winning the jackpot.

I love this story...

A financial advisor buying a how to win the lottery book.

Makes me wonder about the advice given to his clients and what they think after hearing what he was doing. He's telling everybody how to be responsible in allocating their funds and how to invest and save responsibly while he's playing the lottery. I love it.   LOL

This is really wild.

If you think about it, it might just be a really good way to judge the true state of our economy.  Another thought

is that he might be needing to shore up some of the accounts he manages.  I wonder if there is any connection

between high risk capital and lottery tickets as they both seem to have the same rules, "Don't invest more then

you can afford to lose."

From the OP:

He and his wife started playing Hot Lotto about three months ago after reading a book that claimed to have the secrets to winning the lottery. He followed the recommendations, which included buying 19 plays for each drawing to cover all the Hot Ball options.

But he said he was beginning to doubt the book's advice just before he won.

"We were just getting to the point where I said, "You know, this just isn't worth it. I don't think I am going to do this anymore. But we played one more time and...it's kind of nice," he said.

________________________________________________________

Since he said he was just about to give up and it mentions playing 19 plays per drawing it sounds like it might have been Lustig's book, which has been reviewed here on LP.

Whether the winning combo was a QP or not, or birthdays, or ages, or hot and cold numbers, etc..ad nauseum, the fact that a combo he played was the combo drawn still comes down to luck.

Ut oh.

Thud

Whether it's Lustig's book or someone else's people will post and ask if anyone has read it and can they tell them what it says.

While the book sales will definitley increase it was also become apparent that a lot of people not only want the information to beat the house but to beat the one with the information out of the money for it, too.

I don't think that's the book, because they are playing a relatively small number of picks (19) and Lustig says you have to play as much as you can afford -- not specific strategies like "play all the bonus numbers".

And of course there is luck involved.  A great deal of it.  But the strategy they played certainly helped them as well.

And what is Luck. hmmm

L=laboring U=under C=correct K=knowledge

And at the time he was laboring under correct knowledge.  It was spot on.  C'mon Coin Toss, luck adds up to a lot of things. 

Hurray!Congratulations to him!

I think he's been lurking on lottery post, and read "win with magic" by sully & Harve$t Moon Big Grin

Congrats to the Dawsons, Enjoy.

I'm not familiar with Hot Lotto.

Is it possible to select all your bonus balls and get the other numbers by Quick Pick?

Todd's avatar - Cylon 200.jpg
In response to rdgrnr

It depends on what the individual state's lottery terminals allow.  (That goes for all games, not just Hot Lotto.)  Some states have Quick Pick all-or-nothing options, and others allow you to QP just the bonus or the first five numbers.

In response to Todd

OK, thanks. It'd be interesting to know exactly what he did.

Every night at 9 pm is the dead line for buying super cash lottery tickets. At that time the lottery office can go through the computer system and learn what combination of numbers hasn't been sellected or the least amount of winning combination of numbers hasn't been sellected, and just coinsedentally that combination of numbers comes up in the draw. I've been playing twenty dollars a night. Thats 40 lines of 6 numbers ever since super cash started over twenty years ago. Every morning I check all my numbers and win nothing, I start to smell fish. This Wisconsin lottery system is getting rich on suckers like me, who used to believe this is all played fair and square. Sorry, but my skeptism is overwhelming me.

When I first read this, I thought about the 3 if 4 of 14 numbers wheel with 19 combos that I used many times. But after seeing your suggestion, I believe you nailed it.

That's $43,800.00 over six years.

Have you been playing the same numbers all that time?

In response to Fubarvnvmc

$20 a night for over 20 years. $20 x 7 nights a week x 52 weeks x 20 years = $145,600. And I thought I spend too much playing $30 a week.

Perhaps you should consider Gamblers Anonymous?
