Before buying this book ask yourself this, did the reviewers above actually win the lottery after buying the book and why isn't every PHd in Mathematics and statistics doing the same thing. Please buy a book on basic statistics before buying this book. there are no secrets no clustering just randomness. You will lose 50 cents on average for every dollar spent.
Save you money instead of buying what is a piece of garbage.

This book is based on the false concept that there is a substantial and readily detectable bias in lotto/lottery draws, which one can take advantage of and win money. Nothing could be further from the truth. All games are regularly tested with sophisticated statistical methods to make sure there is no bias and thus all numbers are as random as can be obtained. This does not rule out a rare screw up by a state game. Few if any of the sets of numbers in the book could have come from any honestly run game, but only from the warped and dishonest mind of a con man and a scam artist. A few examples will serve as illustration.

On p.17 Jones shows a lottery frequency chart in Fig.4.2 that he claims is based on 500 draws of a 4-ball game. But the data are doctored. A bright high school student taking a statistics class can calculate that the table is a fake.

Next, go to p.24 and look at the positional analysis of a Pick-4 game in Fig.5.3
Count how many hits there are in each position and note that the ssums are all different. Specifically, they are 50-42-41-51 for a total of 184 and a mean of 46, which each position must have. But Jones has used faked data to illustrate a false idea. Any recommendation based on faked data is bogus.

As a third example look at positional analysis of a 6/49 game on p.47. In Fig.6.5 none of the six positions have the same sum. They vary from 49 to 70, which is absurd. He then uses the same data for a positional analysis of a 5/35 game by extracting the 5/35 part of the 6/49 data, as if the two games could have identical numbers.

Jones ha copied, plagiarized and stolen Dimitrov Wheeling Systems from G.Howard,
who has the copyright to them.

In summary, the book is a dishonest and or an incompetent piece of crap.

This book does not help you win the lottery. While there are strategies that can help improve your odds of winning, this book does not do a good job explaining them. In fact, you can get better tips and strategies on lottery information website, for FREE. This book was a huge waste of money. Save your money and check out lottery information websites like [...]. At least if you aren't happy with the information provided, you didn't waste any money!

This book is a great gift to people who appreciate a silly joke. That's exactly why it's 3rd edition already!

I bought this book a year ago, and *I have won the lottery every week* for the last year! This book *works*!!! I recommend buying at least a dozen copies.

The book focusses on three main types of lotteries being played in North America today: 3/4 ball lotteries, 649 style lotteries, and Keno. Powerball and scratch 'n win lotteries are also mentioned. Prof Jones details the major statistical approaches which can be used to maximize the odds of winning any given lottery. Wheeling systems, both full and abbreviated, are discussed. This is a relatively short, small book; it contains plenty of practical 'how to' advice. Players who wish to simply follow a set of cookbook instructions will be right at home here.
I deducted one star simply because I would have preferred a larger book, with more statistical proof to validate the approaches mentioned. I also felt that the discussion of abbreviated wheeling systems was, well, abbreviated; there are a number of templates - hundreds - and while these could have been included, Prof Jones would prefer to sell them to you as a separate product advertised in the back of the book. Still, he does include several commonly used templates, and explain their use.
Actually, there are a number of products advertised in the back of the book, most of them sold by Prof Jones. While I normally prefer my books to be advertisement free, I felt that including advertisements for products very likely to be of great interest to the purchaser probably isn't a huge sin. So, in this case, I chose not to deduct a point. To his credit, there isn't any evidence to indicate that Prof Jones has edited his book in such a way as to make purchase of additional items mandatory. While the products advertised will make the methods described in the book easier to implement, the book does stand on its own.
There are no examples in the book of how odds improve using his methods.

One of the more detailed books i've seen on the subject. Goes step by step thru the process of lowering your odds for pick 3, pick 4, pick 5, pick 6, and power ball. It covers in great detail the following methods: frequency, position, cluster, summing, and wheeling.
