If the wheeling system promoter tells you that
their system is a different and fun way to play the lottery, it is probably
legitimate. If the system promoter tells you that their wheeling system
will improve your odds of winning, it is not. Many of these promoters are
making lavish claims that hundreds of people have won jackpots using their
"wheeling systems". This just simply hasn't happened. Unfortunately,
they can say anything they want on the Internet because there are no enforced
A "wheel" (also known as a "box bet") is simply
a combination bet that includes all possible combinations of a given set of
numbers. For example, in a lottery that requires a 6-number selection at
$1 per ticket, you can "wheel" 7 numbers for $7. You will have all
possible 6-number combinations of those 7 numbers. To wheel 8 numbers, you
will have to pay $28 - there are 28 unique 6-number combinations within a group
of 8 numbers. Wheeling 9 numbers will cost you $84!
But the important thing to remember is that
your 8 number wheel gives you precisely the same odds of winning anything
as 28 randomly selected individual $1 bets. THE LOTTERY MANUALproves
this in Chapter 9. (See also the next question on "increasing your odds").
The "guarantee" that system sellers refer to
usually goes something like this: "If the six numbers drawn by the lottery
fall within the 8 numbers you have selected with our system, you will win."
Some guarantee - think about it - if the six numbers drawn by the lottery fall
within any 8 numbers you select on your own, you will win.
People often write to us and ask, "But
don't wheels give you a better chance at winning lower prizes?" This myth is
flogged as a result of the "multiple win" effect of many wheels. THE
LOTTERY MANUAL will show you in a simple but elegant example, that this
effect means you can win 4 times as many little prizes but only one quarter as frequently. In other words
the net improvement with a wheeling system is zero.
There is more on wheeling, limited wheeling and
other systems in Chapter 9. Make sure you read it before you buy any
Let's use a 6/49 type of lottery as an example.
Your "odds" of winning the jackpot with a single ticket are approximately
14,000,000 to 1. However, if you buy 2 tickets, your odds of winning the
jackpot are 7,000,000 to 1 (you now have 2 chances in 14,000,000). So we
could offer you a "system" guaranteed to double your odds of winning. It
would be a short system - just buy 2 tickets instead of 1 and your odds of
winning are doubled - guaranteed!
One wheeling system seller claims that
if you wheel 7 numbers with their system, your odds will drop from 14,000,000 to 1 to
less than 2,000,000 to 1. But remember - buy any
7 random tickets and your odds will also drop to less than 2,000,000 to 1!
Unfortunately, no system can get around this
fact. There is just simply no other way to improve the
odds against matching the drawn numbers.
A vast majority of systems
- whether wheeling systems, hot number systems, cold number systems, computer
selection software or whatever they are - fail for the same reason. They believe that
mathematics can be applied to predict the outcome of a lottery drawing.
More often than not, they base their
assumptions on what numbers have previously been drawn. The "hot-number"
theorists believe these more frequently drawn numbers will continue to be drawn
while the "cold-number" theorists profess that certain numbers are "due" to come
up. Obviously, they both can't be right. In fact, both are wrong.
Chapter 8 will show you the proof of this.
All these system hopefuls fail to understand that no mathematical set of calculations can ever
predict what those little white balls popping mechanically out of a plastic bubble will
and this is a big however - what has never been done until the
release of THE LOTTERY MANUAL is to apply sound mathematics to the bet management side of lottery playing.
While no system can alter the specific "odds" of any lottery, expected
returns can be dramatically increased through the principles developed by LRC
Research & Development Corporation for THE LOTTERY MANUAL.
Chapter 12 will explain all about
expected returns and how you can manipulate them to your advantage but in a
On average, most
lotteries “return” about 45% to 50% of the money bet by players to the prize
pool. Unfortunately, the disproportionate percentage of virtually all
lottery prize pools devoted to the jackpot or the major subsidiary prizes
precludes the average player from ever reaching that 45% to 50% let alone
exceeding it by winning a jackpot. You would have to live to be several
hundred years old to realize your normal "expected return." But through manipulation
of betting relative to jackpot size and frequency (similar in concept to how
Edwin O. Thorpe's blackjack bet manipulation techniques got him banned from Las
Vegas casinos), THE LOTTERY MANUAL
will show you how to increase your expected returns
by more than 40% giving you a significant edge over almost all
other lottery players. Chapter 12 will prove
this to you.
Furthermore, THE LOTTERY MANUAL will show you
how to do this without increasing your current lottery budget.
All of this is in addition to the unique bet
selection strategies offered in THE LOTTERY MANUAL.
Definitely not. THE LOTTERY MANUAL is an exclusive and thoroughly researched bet strategy and
money management guide. After reading THE LOTTERY MANUAL, you will be
absolutely convinced that virtually all of these so-called systems are complete
wastes of money.
You will also be 100% confident that THE
LOTTERY MANUAL's unique strategies provide you with your best chances of winning
more money playing any lottery draw whether you play in the United States,
Canada, Great Britain, Australia or virtually any random number lottery draw
worldwide. That's why we're Number One.
Modern lotteries have been around for about 30
years, but in no other form of gambling is there so little information available
on effective betting techniques.
If you play blackjack, for example, you can
find a wealth of information on how to play your cards effectively, when to vary
your bets, etc. And there IS a right way to play. It is based on
sound mathematics initially developed by Edward O. Thorpe in 1962. The
same is true for craps, horseracing and most other methods of gambling whereby
you can learn to bet intelligently and minimize the "house's" advantage.
Until THE LOTTERY MANUAL, however, no such
legitimate strategy guide existed for lottery play. Given that annual lottery sales
in North America alone are in the order of 45 billion dollars, this is
astounding. This is important - No system, no book and no strategy can
guarantee you a jackpot win. However, just like blackjack, you can learn
to play smarter, bet smarter and maximize your winnings when you do win -
whether it is a jackpot or a major secondary prize.
LRC Research & Development Corporation began
its research over 12 years ago, studying not just lottery results, but
conducting a detailed analysis of how players bet, what affects winnings, how
jackpots and subsidiary prizes are affected by each other and how strategies can
be maximized to take advantage of varying pari-mutuel prize levels.
There are two principal components to playing
lotteries - the numbers you select and the amount of money you bet.
Unfortunately, most of the "systems" believe there is a third component - the
numbers drawn by the lottery corporations. Obviously, we want to
match those numbers - that's the point. However, analyzing the numbers
that have previously been drawn has absolutely no relevance to your play on the next draw.
When LRC began its research, lottery
corporations tracked player selections; that is, the numbers and number
combinations lottery players actually selected each draw (not just the
numbers drawn). The sheer volume
of today's lottery sales has meant that this tracking is no longer done.
So the information gathered for THE LOTTERY MANUAL can
never be developed by
others - and it is critical information that will directly affect winnings.
The importance of this information to the numbers you select every draw -
the first principal component - cannot be overstated.
The second principal component - the amount you
bet - is of significant importance in pari-mutuel betting. Where jackpots
and the major secondary prizes are pari-mutuel (that is, based on the amount of
money in the prize pool), the portion of your lottery budget allocated to each
draw must vary if you are to improve your overall expected returns. And
this, not the past number drawings, is where the application of
mathematical principles is crucial to your play.
Maximizing your play based on these two
principles is essential to successful lottery play and that is what THE LOTTERY
MANUAL will give you.
As Steve Nelson from San Jose, CA wrote
to us, "With hundreds of books out there on blackjack, horseracing, etc., it's
amazing that nobody ever analyzed the lotto business in the same way. I'm a Vegas regular
and I'd never go there and bet blind. Thanks to you guys, there's finally
a way to to bet intelligently on the lottery."
Neither the bet strategies, including the 12
bet rules, nor the money management strategies are difficult to understand.
In fact, your personal Money Management Strategy will be printed in your Pocket
Guide and will be at your fingertips when you make your bets.
However, if you are really serious about giving
yourself the best opportunity of winning more money, minimizing your chances of
sharing prizes, and maximizing your chances of winning a major jackpot or the
pari-mutuel subsidiary prizes, you will have to make the effort to follow the
unique strategies you will discover in THE LOTTERY MANUAL. It means that,
instead of simply buying a bunch of computer selected picks at your lottery
retailer, you will have to spend a few minutes following the rules by carefully
selecting your numbers and determining the size of your bet.
As with anything, success requires commitment!
No need to. While there are
individual Money Management Strategiesfor the most popular types of lotteries
already included in THE LOTTERY MANUAL, as part of our
customer support policy, we will develop one (maximum one custom strategy per
customer) for you at no charge for up
to one year from the date of your purchase. Simply follow the instructions
in the Customer Support section. Once we receive your information, we will
prepare a customized Money Management Guide along with your 3-3 Key. It
usually takes about 5 business days.
By popular customer demand, recent
updates for the following lotteries are now included in all purchases:
New York Lotto
Lotto Texas changed its format from 6/59 to a Powerball type
with 5/44 draw and a 1/44 bonus ball draw. The jackpot odds increased from
1 in 25.8 million to 1 in 47.7 million! Lotto Texas explains that the
overall odds of winning "any" prize improve from 1 in 71 to 1 in 57, thereby
providing "up to 25 percent more overall winners." The complete truth,
however, is that increased jackpot sizes improve sales. Other lotteries
are likely to follow to the Powerball format. The current Money Management
Strategies for Lotto Texas are based on history since May of 2003 (when the new
format came on line), Lotto Texas' own projections of jackpot payouts, and LRC's
experience with similar lotteries. The strategies will be fine-tuned as
more history becomes available over the next year.
In addition, Powerball itself has
changed its number
selection from 5/49:1/42 and 5/53:1/42 to 5/55:1/42 (and with it the jackpot odds
from 80,000,000 to 1 to over 146,000,000 to 1!). The Powerball Money Management
Tables in THE LOTTERY MANUAL have been modified to account for this change.

Yes. the mathematical principles behind
the bet selection and money management strategies are explained in simple terms
only to provide a general background for the rules and strategies. It
isn't necessary to have any expertise in mathematics or statistics to use them
For those of you who want to know more,
however, we can either answer specific questions or provide you with references
to appropriate sites or other resources. As an example, we often get asked
for more information about "The Birthday Problem" as discussed in Chapter 9.
The simple answer is NO. Whether or not
they are actually illegal depends on the local jurisdiction from where they are
operated, but virtually all of them are pure scams.
In the first case, they are selling lottery
tickets that are substantially inflated over the face cost of the ticket in
those jurisdictions - sometimes overcharging you
by 500% - (and re-selling of tickets is illegal in most of
those jurisdictions). Canadian police recently broke up such a scam
operating out of the eastern part of the country.
Furthermore, you won't receive the actual
tickets you are supposedly buying before the draw. Most operators claim
that they will send you a confirmation of your number selections, but not the
actual ticket. Who knows? You might get some money if you won $10 or
$20 but, without an actual ticket, are you likely to receive a $20,000,000 win?
For your information, there is no record of anyone
EVER receiving a substantial
lottery win through a third party purchase of lottery tickets over the Internet.
Moreover, while a lottery win is not taxable in
Canada or Germany, if you live outside those countries,
it is likely taxable
where you live.
