Not all Pick 4 Systems are the same. Some Pick 4 Systems will increase your chances of winning the lottery while others will kill your chances of winning the lottery. Some of the Pick 4 strategies that are featured on the internet defy simple common sense.
When Pick 4 players want to invest in a Pick 4 system, they should really look for a system with a proven winning record. They should take time to think about what the system is offering and how many potential playable winning Pick 4 numbers are available when using a particular system.
There are 10,000 possible winning straight numbers in the Pick 4 Lottery. Ideally, the right system should have all ten thousand numbers available as possible winners.
Unfortunately, some systems based on their setup or strategy actually eliminate potential winning numbers. They try to make the system look good by lowering the odds to win by eliminating numbers. This is not how to win the lottery. Actually, they are making you a “loser” right from the start. “How?”, you ask.
Some Pick 4 Lottery Systems’ strategy tells the player to choose six out of ten digits, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, and 0. Now think about this strategy, and what it is really doing. It is taking numbers away from your play. It is eliminating potential Pick 4 numbers from your play list with each digit you remove.
Let’s say we buy this system. Follow the strategy to take away these four digits.
This system states that you have increased your chances to win because you have just eliminated 40% of the digits that you have to play to generate winning Pick 4 numbers. This sounds good. You like the idea of increasing your odds of winning.
Behind the smoke and mirrors of these odds is a simple truth that you have also eliminated 40% of your playable potential winning numbers as well. Let’s make it simple by eliminating the four digits, 1, 2, 3, 4. Now we wheel 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 0.
To demonstrate this by example…. go to any sample of winning Pick 4 numbers and cross out every winning Pick 4 number that has 1, 2, 3, or 4 in it. In my example, using the Illinois Pick 4 Lottery results and winning numbers from February 1 – 15, 2010, both midday and evening…..that will be thirty draws.
Remember, you bought this Pick 4 Lottery System because of the promise that this strategy was going to IMPROVE your ODDS of WINNING the PICK 4 LOTTERY.
If you are from a single draw State, then just use 15 days of draws. Now go to your list and cross out every drawn winning Pick 4 number during this time period that contains one of the four digits that have been eliminated…. 1, 2, 3, and 4. How many numbers did you cross out?
In the sample from the Illinois Pick 4 Lottery, February 1 – 15, 2010, I crossed out 23 of the 30 winning numbers. That’s 23 drawings that you were NEVER GOING TO WIN because of this Pick 4 System’s strategy before you even began playing the Pick 4
You are a 76% loser here (23/30). Now the only chance you have to win is the remaining 7 draws if you have any money left playing “this strategy of improving your odds”. Your dream of winning the Pick 4 lottery has become a nightmare of losses simply because you didn’t think the system through using common sense.
This type of Pick 4 System makes Pick 4 players mistrusting of every other Pick 4 Systems in the marketplace. As a result, they pass up the Best Lottery System because they no longer trust any Pick 4 Lottery System.
