To which group of predictors are you addressing your question?  You can look up their statistics for most of the informations you're seeking.

For the most part those types of statistics can only be maintain over a short period of time and at least half of them are regular members who can only post ten lines per drawing.

Hans

For both groups!For example.You,RJOH,How did you make your prize ratio more than 200% last month only playing at most 10 lines per drawing?Is it pure luck?Or did you benefit from a straight Pick3 luck or a pick4?I don't think its easy to make prize ratio more than 200% playing pick5 or pick6 though!But if anyone can make it,I would love to learn about their playing skills.

Hans

RJOh

I seldom predict or play pick3/pick4 games so my predictions are mainly for pick5, pick6 and the jackpot games. I do predict for the W.Va Cash25(6/25) sometime which distort my performance in a positive way.

I do experiment with a system that I've been developing since I came to LP.  When ever I've changed or add something to it, I have discussed it in either the system, discussion, pick5 or jackpot forums.  I play all my predictions for games played in Ohio and some of my PB predictions when I travel to Indiana.

I know some members think trying to predict the out come of a random event is a waste of time but I've observed lottery drawings of games that have run years without a matrix change (Ohio Buckeye5 - 5/37) and seen certain combinations repeat several times before some combinations ever hit even once which has convinced me that certain combinations are more likely to hit than others as I explained in a recent post in another forum.

Hans

Thanks a lot for the contribution!

I also believe a group of numbers,for example,15 numbers,generated by randomness is more likely to beat most human picks.

As for the combination,How did you exactly made your prize ratio more than 200% last month?What kind of wheel did you use?And how many numbers did you pick up?

Hans

RJOh

If you look at my predictions, you'll see they include most of the numbers in the pool.  I don't use wheels because no wheel with that many numbers can be in ten lines.  I pick parameters that favor combinations that are most likely to come up and if I'm lucky one of those combinations will have three or more of the winning numbers.  I usually get plenty of twos, it the threes and better that hard to get.

And then there are posters whom for whatever reason post there numbers multiple times example 0000 10 times or 20 times - 50 times should that number come out it drives their statistics straight to the top. While it shows there percentages are high unless you are tracking specific posters numbers you have no way of knowing how that poster does over time with individual picks.

RJOh

The prize ratio and other percentages are base on the total predictions posted, that's the reason you see predictors with different amounts of predictions with similar ratings.  Posting a few or a lot of predictions shouldn't give anyone an edge, it's the percent that win something that counts.

So your saying if i post 2222---- 50 times and it comes out thats \$5,000 x 50 = \$250,000 that my statistics percentage will not change. You better think that through again.

RJOh

Yes if you post 2222---- 50 times and it comes out thats \$5,000 x 50 = \$250,000, and that's the same prize ratio as posting 2222 one time and it comes out, \$5000 won for \$1 waged.  There's nothing unfair about someone winning if they post the same number more than once, they are just wagering more money on one number.

Hans

50:25,000=1:500.Qiuite good..

That means when the prize ratio could reach 50000%,the total investment per drawing of 50 dollars could still make profit.Right?

Hans

RJOh

Players have won multi-millions dollars jackpots with a \$10 ticket or less, so the potential prize ratios could be in the millions of percents.

To get a prize ratio of 200% in pick-3 games you need one correct straight pick out of 250 predictions. Basically it's an even money payoff where you bet \$250 to win \$250 in a game where the actual odds are 1000 to 1 and the payoff is \$500 to \$1.

But it's still a profit.
