In this new, improved, and expanded edition of his PICK-6 book, Professor Bluskov again delivers the best lottery systems to the attention of lotto players from around the world. A total of 128 current world record least expensive systems for a broad range of guarantees are presented. This book offers the newest and best on lotto systems (wheels). It is a book of interest to every lottery player or a group of players who wish to play their numbers in an organized and balanced way. Lottery systems (wheels) guarantee wins in the same way a single ticket does while allowing playing with many numbers (7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,... etc.) For instance, a single ticket guarantees a 4-win if four of the player's numbers are drawn. A lottery system is a well-organized set of tickets, giving the same guarantee, while allowing the players to use as many numbers as they wish. For example, system #24 from the book guarantees a 4-win whenever four of the player's 14 numbers are drawn; system #25 guarantees a 4-win whenever four of the player's 15 numbers are drawn, etc. Systems with many other guarantees are presented in this excellent strategy book. Each system has been constructed by Dr. Bluskov's new techniques of combinatorial and computer optimization, and, therefore, gives the most economical way of playing for a certain guaranteed win. All of these systems are world records in terms of performance (achieving certain guarantee in the minimum possible number of tickets). The book is the only one on the subject which is written by a mathematician and a lottery expert and we believe it is the best one in existence. The book offers a huge number of improvements in the area of classical lottery systems. Many features of the book are completely new for the genre, for example, systems with double and multiple guarantees and tables of possible wins. Other unique features include the presentation and organization of the material: Each system appears as a separate article, including a table of all possible wins; comments on various characteristics of the system, such as minimality, balance and density; and the system itself. The book provides the tools to make playing the lottery as entertaining as playing a table game and gives the player strategies to attack the jackpot in a balanced and well-organized way. No mathematical knowledge is needed to either play or understand the lottery systems, which makes the book accessible to virtually every lottery player or a group of players. --From the publisher
