Is there a way to pick winning numbers for lottery tickets

12 replies • Last post

IS THERE A WAY TO PICK NUMBERS FOR THE CA. LOTTERY MEGA MILLIONS OR SUPERBALL THAT COME UP MUCH MORE FREQUENTLY THAN OTHER NUMBERS??? AND IF YOU DID FIND THE MOST CHOSEN NUMBERS IS THERE A WAY TO PREDICT WHAT WOULD MOST LIKELY COME NEXT OR A SEQUENCE OF NUMBERS THAT WILL EVENTUALLY WIN I don't know AND I HAVE HEARD OF "HANDICAPPING
'WHEN BETTING ON THE HORSES COULD YOU APPLY SOME OF THE SAME PRINCIPLES FOR THE CA. LOTTERY?? AND HOW WOULD YOU DO IT?? I AM JUST INTERESTED IN NUMBERS AND WOULD LIKE TO START PLAYING THE LOTTERY IN A MORE METHODICAL MANNER?? DOES ANYBODY HAVE ANY IDEAS.

There's no way to pick winning numbers for sure... but if you do find the way can you tell me? Wink

I found a good page at the actual California Lottery site that tells you all about the numbers:
http://us-lotteries.com/California/Mega_Millions/

But remember you could pick the most commonly drawn numbers, but in the end its up to random luck. Some numbers have to be drawn more often than others, thats just the nature of luck and randomness.

Always play it safe! Consult our list of rogue casinos and warnings before depositing.

I still believe that all the lottery RNGs are biased, maybe because I have never won a penny lol but to think logically it is quite easy to manipulate the numbers by the operators, I'll explain:

In Georgia, where I come from, when playing a national lottery, we buy a ticket, tick 6 numbers out of 36 and then go to an operator, who marks our numbers in a computer iMac and gives us electronic ticket- so we can't change the numbers ticked initially.

On the other hand, this means that the operator know all the numbers chosen by people- and guess what ? It is very easy to set the numbers the way that the lottery company gives out minimum money- meaning that the numbers that are chosen the least come up as the winning ones in the game!

Once in a decade the Jackpot is also won, but this is done just to let people know that miracles also happen sometimes Joking

I love a good conspiracy theory! lol

But hang on, if you think about it the lottery has to know which numbers were picked before the draw. Otherwise everybody would turn up claiming they had the winning numbers after the draw was made.

That's true that is why we have to "fix" our picked up numbers at the operator's. But this "fixing" enables the lottery company to set the winning numbers the way that it gives out minimum amount of $$... So I do not play lottery any more lol

I don't think that in Georgia anybody still believes and buys tickets. Do they?

I don't think that any lottery company is honest to its customers.

Actually there's a tendency in people which numbers to choose. In most cases if you have to choose 5 numbers in 50, you would chose one between 0-10, second between 10-20 and so on. There's a little chance that anybody would chose 2, 3, 4 and 25, 26, for example, so, with such "consumer-behaviour" information lottery companies can make the "winning" numbers be what they want

what's the evidence of thinking this way?

I agree on honesty, and I even doubt that any luck ever exists, at least for Georgian lottery players.. Watch this:

I doubt I am the only one who has lightened up the scheme of how the lottery in Georgia works.. We have no gambling forums in Georgia, so unfortunately I can not voice up my opinion there...glad that you liked the pic Smile

60%of TV channels are biased.. 20% is indifferent with the matter and the rest 20 has no TV shows or any other programs, usually broadcasts old live concert of Beyonce...
