Winning the Pick 4 lottery takes more than luck. Some players can claim to be lucky because they are. Like the North Carolina man who keeps winning different lotteries in Virginia. On October 13th he received his sixth major Virginia Lottery prize when he claimed $65,800 in the Pick 4 midday drawing playing the 5117 as his lucky Pick 4 number.
He purchased 15 tickets playing the winning Pick 4 number 5117 in the exact order eleven times which rewarded him with $55,000. The four remaining winning tickets were straight/box tickets each returning $2,700. His $15.00 investment gave him a ROI, return on investment, of an astronomical 438,600%. When this North Carolina gentleman was asked about his huge win, he calmly replied, ‘I’m just lucky, I’ve always been lucky.’
Most Pick 4 lottery players unfortunately cannot claim the same kind of luck. The not so lucky players need to work at winning the Pick 4 lottery. Most lottery experts agree that if a player wants to be serious about winning these lotteries, he or she needs to use a system.
Players need to find a multi-strategy system that helps them to learn how to win the Pick 4 lottery. One of the first strategies found in a multi-strategy system is to take notes. One important note taking strategy is keeping a calendar of all the drawn Pick 4 numbers for a particular State Lottery.
Numbers like order. In studying Pick 4 numbers the player finds out that sometimes a particular number is redrawn on the exact same date, same day of the week, same particular week of a month, or same month, same date or a combination of these named possibilities.
By using and analyzing the calendar strategy the player who is not born with luck can benefit from such analysis and connect the dots to create a winning Pick 4 number such as the 5117 by seeing and understanding the pattern from the previous drawings.
Looking back on the calendar, the 5117 was drawn on Sunday, April 12, 2009 and May 10, 2009. Now the Pick 4 player begins to analyze this data to narrow down the dates and times to play the 5117. The player asks himself or herself what are the connecting points?
The 2009 drawings, April 12 and May 10, provide some interesting clues. They are both Sundays. April and May are neighboring months. Like a good detective, the player pieces together the clues to come up with a time frame when it is best to play the Pick 4 lottery number 5117. Instead of playing the 5117 all 365 days in 2010 in hopes of catching a winner, the player can narrow his or her choices down to a few days applying the analyzed data.
In 2009 the first time the 5117 was drawn was on Sunday, April 12. The data indicates the pattern to show it is redrawn on the same day of the week in the following month. In applying the pattern data to the April 2009 drawing date, the player sets up to play the 5117 on the Sundays in May 2010. The Sundays are May 2, 9, 16, 23 and 30.
Sometimes in life things arrive early and sometimes they are late. The player, in order to protect his or her investment, can incorporate this possibility in his investment plan. The plan is to play 5117 on the Saturday-Sunday-Monday dates in May 2010. The dates in 2010 are May 1-2-3, 8-9-10, 15-16-17, 22-23-24, 29-30-31.
The plan includes these fifteen dates in May 2010. Since the plan expects the 5117 to be drawn in the exact order, the investment focuses on playing more straight tickets than box tickets.
Going back to the calendar for more clues on the 5117, a Virginia Pick 4 player discovers two box forms were winning Pick 4 numbers -- 1715 won on November 22, 1997, which was a Saturday, and 1175 won on January 15, 1999. Both the 15th and 22nd are Saturday dates in May 2010. This new evidence offers some very interesting additional information that gives the player two new options for his or her investment.
The first option is to keep the plan as already outlined, but make an additional investment on these two dates, May 15th and 22nd. The second option centers on the fact that both those dates in May 2010 are Saturdays. Now the player can choose to focus on just Sundays and Saturdays with an increased level of play on the 15th and 22nd of the month. By eliminating Mondays from the play list the player reduces the days of play from fifteen days down to ten days. But the player might think about increasing his or her investment on the Saturdays, May 15th and 22nd.
On Saturday, May 22, 2010, the Virginia Pick 4 Lottery drew the 5117 as the winning Pick 4 number in the midday drawing. This is how the calendar strategy in the multi-strategy system can help the player born without luck overcome his or her luckless handicap and play smart to win the Pick 4 lottery.
