    Hi LG
    I just signed up for your strategy group updates… this should be interesting…

    Well the couriosity has got the best of me and I did what I said I would not do. I bought the analyzing system from Mark Bower! If you do not have good knowledge of how to run spreadsheets then you don’t stand a hope in hell of what it is all about. Fortunately I do have that knowledge so now I will put it to the test and see if I am going to be the next millionaire. I will let you know how it works out.

      I wish you luck Ron, but with Mark Bower’s system I trust you’ll forgive me for not holding my breath 😉

        Thanks LG. As you know like anything in life you have to use your common sense. He does have an interesting approach so I will apply what he says and let time run it’s course. Success is achieved by those who try, and keep trying. I take a little bit of information from here and there, put it all together and see what happens.

    Hi LG, A Great Site and lots of interesting feedback. Have looked at many of the ‘systems’ discussed here & bought few if any. (that includes Ken Silver’s systems hailing from down this way) Not sure if you’ve come across Robert Serotic’s publications (circa 1980-1990’s) and his abbreviated wheels & traps – but much of his material IMO is fairly straight up & down for what he presents. Some of the wheels and systems out there today may well be variations and reincarnations of his systems. Cheers

    • LG

      Hey Gray

      Thanks :-). And thanks for stopping by.

      I have heard of Robert Serotic but not read any of his books yet. I suspect his wheeling systems have been improved on now though – the last few years have seen a lot of win guarantees being equalled using less combinations (e.g. by Bluskov amongst others).

      Rumour has it that Serotic won 9 jackpots, but ended his days fairly poor – not sure if he spent it all on lottery tickets or champagne ;-). Apparently this edition of his ‘Only Way To Win Book’ is his key work – I’ll see if I can pick up a 2nd hand copy and add a review for folks here.

        Like “k” I came across this site, while searching for potential lottery Systems and if I had of found it sooner, I may of saved heaps. But that’s all now water under the bridge.

        “Magic Site.” I’m now signed up as a new member.

        I was surfing through the reviews and looking for comments on “Serotics” books and came across the question by Gray and Lottery-Guy’s reply.

        Well to you both, I would recommend the edition that you have listed above or any of his other books.
        Interesting reading and as old as they are, the systems can and still work today. He shows you how you can make your own or alter any of his systems to suit your self.

        It’s like any sytem when you shorten it you leave holes so there is no guarantee. You must read his Guarantees carefully for any system that you may use.

        The reason I’m writing these comments is that I sometimes awake during the night and cannot get back to sleep. So I’ll pick up a lotto book open any page and read to see if I can find a better system.
        The book this night is the one that you’ve mentioned I opened the book to page 259 there’s a little system on this page, but it was not the system that attracted me to it, was the numbers that he used 5 from last weeks lotto 9th Feb 2013. The next morning I set the numbers out on to a piece of paper, the system uses 11 numbers, 36 boards (sets of six numbers) cost of 0.60 cents per board $21,60 our money. The game plays 1 Key#, 1 set of 2 pair, and 3 numbers from 2 groups of 3 (i,e, 6 other numbers}.
        His numbers were 1 key, 1 pair, 2 from group.
        The return would of been 3 x 5 #’s 3rd Div @ $891 each, 12 x 4#’s 5th Div @ $39 each you do the sums. This was all in the first 18 boards along with 18 x 3 #’s Plus another 3 in the othe 18 boards total 21 with no prizes here, unless you have a bomus # with it and all boards had the chance to win the big one.
        As you can see with bit luck going your way it’s a powerful little system.
        Even Bluskov would be hard pressed to better this at this price.

        As for me It’s would of, could of, should of, but I’m still searching and I’ll be playing this system in the future, may of missed the boat though.

        Cheers

        Hello Bill,

        I’m on the same page as you 🙂

        and the same Kiwi Lottery too by look of things

        One thing which amuses me with that Lottery is the two draws in recent past where all 6 winning numbers have been covered by winner with all the Powerball combinations — taking out Powerball & a fair proportion of the Div 1 pool as well

        Not a bad strategy to reduce the odds on Powerball to those of the basic Div 1.

        Cheers

  • Joyce

    Lottery-Guy – Thank you very much! For confirming my suspicions!

    I did purchase Ken Silver’s bunch of malarkey and have spent weeks since trying to get my monies back > as his website states “full refund.”

    I feel if enough of us get together and hit him with a “class action” suit, he’ll start refunding, is anyone willing to do so?

    Thanks Lottery-Guy!!!!!

  • Davidallen

    You have terrific site! I’m sure most of the so called “winning lotto system” owners must dread your site.

    I was wondering if you have you ever heard of the “Lottery Winning Formula” by Michael Jenkins? I would like your input before I invest any money into it.

    Thanks,
    David

    • LG

      Thanks David 🙂

      Looks like ‘Lottery Winning Formula’ is just another name for ‘Lottery Crusher’ – the two sites are very similar.

      (Amusingly if you look at his ‘blog’ it actually says Lottery Crusher in the copyright notice at the bottom – oops, forgot to change that one eh? 😉 )

  • David

    There was a lottery system written by a mathematician/engineer, William Atwood, called The Lottery Solution – he proved mathematically that you could improve your odds (although still a long shot) of winning the jackpot/lower level prizes by taking all the numbers in a lottery (ie. 49 numbers) and combining them for 8 tickets such that none of the 49 numbers repeat – a group in England actually won using this method.

    • LG

      Also known as the ‘Matrix Method’, unfortunately this doesn’t really work ‘as advertised’.

      In terms of the jackpot it actually makes no difference at all. Each combination is just one of the millions available. It doesn’t matter how you combine the numbers, ultimately you’re still just covering 8 of 13,983,816 possible results.

      You will of course have the drawn numbers somewhere across your tickets – but the chances of them all being on the same ticket are no better. With only 8 tickets you’re going to end up with tickets mostly hitting just 1 number, sometimes 2. And of course you don’t win anything for that.

      This is basically a poorly designed wheeling system. There is some merit to wheeling and choosing a wheel with a useful minimum match guarantee. But it only helps with the small prizes, and makes no difference as far as the jackpot goes. You also need to be playing enough lines to bother, and while it’s useful it’s still a minor thing.

    Have you heard of winners only lotto? It’s a book I found at a local gas station ($6.99).

    Website says with promo code (100 or 129) you can access the site free for 30days – but you have to register your paypal or credit card first. I’m not willing to do that but would buy the book if you give it a good review.

    Thx.

    • LG

      Hi Diane

      Another new one. Had a good look around, and I see lots of warning signs on his site.

      Things like increase chances “by up to 67%” – he clearly doesn’t know much about maths as you increase chances by 100% just by buying 2 tickets instead of 1. That probably also explains the claim that ‘numerology is a mathematical science that can help you predict lottery results’. It isn’t.

      So I’m afraid it all looks very much like superstitious nonsense to me. You simply cannot deduce future lottery results by applying any kind of formula to previous ones. I’d spend the money on lottery tickets instead as even at $7 the book sounds like a waste of money 🙂

  • Mark

    I don’t believe you tried any of these systems. I’ve been using [junk system] for several years and have been winning almost every draw! There are systems to help you win. I totally disagree with you.

    (Edit: [junk system] = removed suspected self promotion, LG)

  • Sam

    Good work, Lottery-Guy. My new book “A Player’s Guide to Lotto Strategies [Kindle Edition]” takes six of these systems, breaks them down mathematically, and formally proves them wrong. It also makes the point that at least two authors are perfectly sincere because using their “system” they have won some lottery more than once, and have grossly underestimated the probability of doing so purely by chance. I would be glad to send a free review copy to you or to anyone else who wishes to write a review.

    • LG

      Hey Sam,

      I’d be happy to review your book – just email a copy over, and I’ll put a review up for folks as soon as I can (you subscribed to comments so should see this comment by email first, so just hit reply on that to reach me).

  • Mike

    What do you know about Paul Terry winning at pick 3 and pick 4

    • LG

      Hi Mike

      It’s another system based on number analysis – which doesn’t work. As Veronica mentioned here ‘Paul’ also happily promotes other junk systems such as The Lotto Black Book (which is probably the worst of them all)!

      But I don’t recommend playing games like Pick 3 anyway, they’re just like playing a slot machine. Pick a game with a life changing jackpot (that amount differs from person to person) and the best odds, and focus on that instead.

  • Sam

    I am surprised that no one seems to know that you can download The Lotto Black Book from the Internet for free. That is because it merely is a reissue of “Winning Lotto Strategies” by Paul Connor. Marketing efforts of this book ceased when it was exposed as plagiarized material with stolen testimonials by the webmaster of [link removed], who is offering a free download out of outrage from his site. QRV Holdings gave the book a new name, new author, and new hype, and is offering it under a new cover. The true author of much of the material in the book is Robert Perkis.

    • LG

      Hey Sam

      There’s definitely no excuse at all for plagiarism. But as I’m not 100% clear on who owns the material and I think there better ways to handle copyright infringement, I’ve removed the link for the free download from Mr Outraged :-).

      Unfortunately the original source material itself is actually really poor. It’s nearly all numerical analysis that makes no sense at all in the real world. So even for free it’s really not worth the time to read it.

      (Anyone curious/determined will be able to search it out – please don’t ask for the link 🙂 )
