WARNING: BEWARE OF LOTTO POOLS

He could be a crook. Buy your own lottery tickets and keep them in your possession until the drawing.

Ken Dickkerson Passed Away on January 20

I was deeply saddened to learn of Ken Dickkerson’s passing on January 20. Ken was sweet, spiritual, sincere and a very dear friend. His warmth and enthusiasm endeared Ken to all who knew him. I met Ken in the early 1980's through a mutual friend. We had many interests in common – including lottery systems.

After Ken showed me his unique method of picking winning lottery numbers, I suggested that he write a weekly column for the same New York paper where my column appeared and I introduced Ken to the publisher. Ken’s column, Astrological Lottery, has appeared in Lotto News (and its previous editions) since 1985, including the Mega Millions and Powerball editon.

Ken Dickkerson is the ONLY author of a book on lottery systems that has been published by a major publisher. Ken’s book, How to Win Games of Chance was published in 1992 by Ballantine Books. (All other lottery books are self-published, including my own.) Ken is listed as "the lottery psychic" in Paulette Cooper's book, “The 100 Top Psychics of America.” Using Kirilian photography and other esoteric methods, Ken focused his psychic abilities for choosing winning lottery numbers, which he emailed to a long list of faithful subscribers.

I invited Ken to my house to appear with me on the “48 Hours” television show and then other shows followed. Through Ken, I met his good friend, Lloyd Strayhorn, author of the excellent, best selling book, “Numbers and You,” and I appeared on Lloyd’s “Numbers and You,” talk show.

To find out more about Kenneth Dickkerson (a.k.a. Kenneth Dickkersun or Dickerson) and to read testimonials from his happy winners, visit his web site.

My condolences go out to Ken's daughters Karla, Karen and Kristina and his friends and fans. What a loss for his subscribers! He will be missed by us all. But, heaven has gained an angel.

Virginia's Mark Wright Played 20 Tickets, All Winners, Using Gail Howard's System

Mark Wright of Warsaw, Virginia, said he was "all jittery" when he won $20,845 in Mega Millions on May 1, 2009. He played 20 tickets and every ticket was a winner. Two tickets paid $10,000 each, and the other 18 tickets totaled $845 in smaller prizes.

Mark sent Gail a thank you letter. After all, he had used the Gail Howard wheeling systems to win, specifically Balanced Wheel® system #53011.

"Gail has simplified the complex with her unique wheeling systems," he wrote. "I've owned this system for only a short period of time. On May 1, 2009, I won $20,845.00. Before that, I've hit several smaller amounts since purchasing Gail's system -- not bad for someone who plays periodically. The Balanced Wheel® system I use is #53011. This system allows me to play a very modest amount of 11 numbers for 20 games with her Smart Pick feature."

Powerball has changed its format

The Powerball lottery has changed the game's number format again. Powerball is now a 5/59 + 1/39 game instead of the old 5/55 + 1/42 format. The first drawing was Wednesday January 7, 2009.

To update Advantage Plus with these changes, download pb0559.slh and pb0139.slh (NOTE: As of 2012, the correct file is now pb0135.slh). These files are replacing the old pb0555.slh and pb0142.slh, so you can delete those files to avoid confusion. The main powerball file (pb0559.slh) still includes the old results from the game. Once there are enough drawings to work with, we will freeze the game range to ignore past drawings. If you want to freeze the range yourself, you can do so at any time, to any drawing: Select the game, go to chart 4, press F3-Change Range, change the first game to the drawing number you want, then press F3-Lock in First Game.

Please note that Powerball is a multi-state game, so the history file is listed under the game name instead of the state. Florida has been added to the list of states that offer Powerball, but there will not be a "Florida Powerball" file, it is just called "Powerball" for every state.

You can download the new files with any of our free lotto result updating methods.

The Flash Drive upgrade is for customers who already purchased a Flash Drive with their software. If you have Smart Luck software, but you don't own the Smart Luck Flash Drive, you can find more information about it here.

New Release!
The Smart Luck Flash Drive software upgrade has improved:
  1. The usability of the audio tutorials
  2. The function of "check for upgrades"
  3. The functioning of the history update options -- especially the personal favorites. When choosing favorite files, the list will show you the full name of the lotto game under the pointer so that it is easier to identify the lottery files you want to put on your list. Also the function of updating that list has been improved to make it considerably faster on dialup Internet connections.
  4. All history files from the Lottery Updater are installed only if the last drawing is newer than the last drawing in your file.

TO INSTALL THE NEW UPGRADE: Select the option "Check for Upgrades" on your Smart Luck Flash Drive. If it says your version is already current or doesn't find an upgrade or if it finds an error when it tries to do the upgrade, install the new version free by clicking here. Once you install this upgrade, the "check for upgrades" option will work properly for future updates.

Make sure your Smart Luck Flash Drive is plugged in before you try to upgrade. If you have installed it on your hard drive, it will upgrade both the Flash Drive and the hard drive installation. If you have more than one flash drive with the ghmenu installed, it will upgrade both copies but you may have to run this upgrade more than once.

Please note: If you should encounter an error message created by the upgrade program or the menu program, please tell us as much information as you can about the error, especially what you were doing when the error occurred and what the error message said (only the words, not the numbers). You can send us an email or call the technical support line. (Check our contact page.)

Gail Howard's Number Picks for Powerball $230 Million Jackpot

by Gail Howard

Need help in picking the best Powerball numbers? America's favorite lottery game has an estimated jackpot of $230 million for Wednesday, March 12. To beat the odds of one in 146 million, you need more than luck. You need Smart Luck -- as in my lottery-playing strategies and Web site. Let's look at some smart ways to choose Powerball numbers for the drawing of March 12.

Since the Powerball number field was changed on Aug. 31, 2005, the five white balls are chosen from numbers 1 to 55; and the sixth number, the red ball, is chosen from numbers 1 to 42. The white balls and the red ball are drawn from two different number fields. So, we must analyze them as two separate lotto games, each with their own historical data.

SUM CHART BIAS TRACKER

When you add the five white Powerball winning numbers together, you get a sum.

The lowest possible sum is 15. (1+2+3+4+5 = 15)

The highest possible sum is 265 (51-52+53+54+55 = 265)

Although sums as low as 15 and as high as 265 are theoretically possible, the lowest sum of the five Powerball winning numbers drawn since this game began is 50. Only 8 of the drawings had a sum of 80 or lower. The highest sum ever was 230. Only 13 drawings had a sum above 200.

Seventy (70) percent of the sums of all the winning Powerball five white-ball combinations fall within the sum range of 104 to 176. Smart Luck is having the sum of your five white ball Powerball numbers add up to somewhere between 104 and 176, which is the 70-percent most probable range.

Checking the Bias Trackers in my Advantage Plus software, I see that there will be more even numbers than odd numbers; more high numbers (28 to 55) than low numbers (1 to 27); three hot numbers (out ten games or less). Favored last digits are 2 and 6; last digits due are 1, 3 and 9. A skip of 5 (out 5 games) is most due - which means a choice of any of these numbers: 9-12-22-36.

Using the Ten Game Group Count chart, I divided the 55 Powerball white balls into seven groups of eight numbers. The group with numbers 17 to 24 accounted for 26 percent of the all the winning numbers drawn for the past ten games. The poorest performing number group, numbers 33 to 40, accounted for only 8 percent of the winning numbers. The second poorest performing groups, numbers 41 to 46, accounted for 10 percent of the winning numbers drawn. Although one or two of the winning numbers could come from the 17 to 24 group, the Bias favors the poorest performing number groups.

Skip and Hit® Chart produced these number picks: 2-3-8-9-11-13-16-19-23-30-35-37-42-53-54-55.

Lotto Astro Scope Chart produced these number picks: 13-16-22-36-37-42-48-54-55.

Quick Stats produced these number picks: 08-12-13-14-22-26-27-30-35-38-40-42-43-45-50-54.

50-Game Hit Chart Hottest Numbers: 23-31-02-08-11-20-16-18-35-30-55.

50-Game Hit Chart Coldest Numbers: 45-50-36-44-51

TRACKING THE POWERBALL RED BALL!

The all-important Red Ball makes the difference between winning $200,000 or $230 million! (It also affects other prize categories.)

After the number field changed on Aug. 31, 2005, number 14 has been the hottest Red Ball number, with 13 hits. Next hottest were 37 with 11 hits and 5 with ten hits. Red Ball numbers with nine hits each were: 03-17-23.

Powerball Red Ball numbers with the fewest hits -- only two hits each -- were: 04 and 07. Next lowest ranking were 22-27-33-34-40 with three hits each.

One can never say a Powerball Red Ball is due for a win. Red Ball number 28 skipped 170 drawings between wins; and 14 other numbers have skipped one hundred or more drawings between wins.

The Lotto Astro Scope produced these numbers for the Red Ball: 03-19-32.

Dare I say that if I were to buy one Powerball ticket for the March 12 drawing, I would choose numbers 03-13-19-38-45 for the five white balls and 19 for the Mega Ball number.

Now if all the numbers I've mentioned are enough to confuse you so you can't decide which ones to play, then choose 22 of them, using the Free Interactive wheeling system #3014. Check 22 numbers between 1 and 55, and then click on Generate Combinations. That's all there is to it. Now, go win 230 million dollars with a Gail Howard system!
