Hi, my name is Brian. If you are looking for an honest review of Winning the Lottery in Three Steps, you have come to the right place. I have actually purchased, reviewed and am in the process of incorporating this lotto system into my lottery number selections.
Below I will be giving an unbiased opinion of this lotto system so that hopefully you will be able to make an informed decision on whether or not to purchase Mark Bower’s Winning the Lottery in Three Steps.
So, What is Winning the Lottery in Three Steps?
Winning the Lotto in Three Steps is a lotto number picking book set up as a login website that is actually organized as a step by step lottery course. It was written by Mark Bower, a past lottery winner who has won over $1.2 million from lottery games over the past 3 years.
According to Mark, his course is based at least in part on an old book called When the Chance Stops Being a Chance. Mr. Bower states that it was used by wealthy Europeans after World War 2 to successfully win while gambling in casinos.
There are 5 chapters altogether. Within those 5 chapters are the 3 steps.
Step 1 is titled game strategy which is made up of 9 sections each a method of picking and analyzing lotto numbers. Below are just a few of techniques:
Hit game analysis
Step 2 is about deciding which numbers to play after using the above techniques. I am not sure why he organized it in this way, but this section contains additional number analysis techniques.
Prime number analysis
Odd and even numbers
High and Low numbers
Altogether, there is a lot of information and I am only showing you about half of the roughly 16 analysis methods taught. You should not be intimidated though as you do not have to know everything to get started picking your winning numbers. Just start with hit game and frequency analysis and add techniques as you go.
Step 3 covers game strategy such as playing for smaller winnings and the jackpot.
Just about every page of this course has examples backed up by charts. Mark Bower uses the American multi state lottery game, Powerball in all of his examples so that you can see his techniques and computations used in a real life situation.
The technique that is the most intriguing to me is the “Characteristic number” computation. This is a short series of computations that when finished, will yield
1 or 2 winning numbers guaranteed in about 40% of games played. Mark Bower proves this with his Powerball examples by applying the computations to past Powerball games.
Some may think that 1 or 2 numbers in 40% of games is not that impressive, but if you have any experience in selecting lottery numbers you will know different. How often have you had to decide between several numbers and just could not make up your mind? Sure, you can increase the number of lines you will play, but we all have to stick within our budget. Characteristic number analysis gives you a tool to eliminate numbers you are not sure of allowing you to stay within your budget and pick numbers you know will win.
Looking at it another way, in a lotto game that has a main number pool of 5 numbers, maybe you have picked 3 that you feel pretty good about. What are you going to do for the other 2? You do your characteristic number computation and in 40% of games you will hit the winning numbers assuming the first ones you picked are correct. This could be invaluable if you want to just go for the smaller prizes.
None of these techniques will work very well on their own. Mark has chapters that explain how to put it all together in deciding which numbers to play. I would say when you are first starting out, use the frequency analysis and hit game analysis. After that, start computing the characteristic numbers.
If you are not really big on math, I would not let that deter you. Even though the word analysis is used quite a bit, there is nothing complicated here. The biggest requirement is your interest in learning how to outsmart lottery game designers.
Finally, there is an abbreviated and a full number wheel to put all of the numbers you picked into combinations for you. For those of you that are not familiar with what a number wheel is, it is simply software that if the full wheel is used, will put your chosen numbers into every possible combination. This is what you would use if you are going for the jackpot. The abbreviated wheel will produce fewer combinations and would be used for the smaller prizes.
What did I not like about Winning the Lottery in Three Steps?
The first thing that struck me was that this course does not seem to have been proof read at all. The grammar is poor in places and there are words missing out of sentences. There is nothing so bad that I could not understand what is being said, but it would be nice if it were edited. Luckily none of that is relevant to picking winning lotto numbers.
The only other thing that is annoying is how you are forced to start from the beginning and go through each page in order. I rarely do that with nonfiction preferring to jump around. The table of contents has been formatted to stop you from clicking on a later chapter unless you have gone through all the chapters before it. In other words Mark wants you to go through the course step by step in the way he has laid it out.
What did I like about Winning the Lottery in Three Steps?
In all of his tables of examples Mark Bower uses the numbers of the first 79 games of 2011 Powerball. This makes everything more believable when you can see a concept applied to a real game. There is no theory here. Everything he teaches has been put into practice.
This course also contains more techniques and methods of looking at numbers than any other lottery products I have seen with a few things I had never heard of before.
I also like the way in which it is organized in a logical step by step manner. This is where I contradict my above comment a little about not being able to jump around right from beginning before you have finished each page before the one you may want to go to. I have reviewed other lotto products that while they may have contained useful information, it seemed to have been just thrown in here and there with no order to it.
Overall what do I think?
I have always had a thing for “beating the system”. Outsmarting the people who have set things up to be unbeatable has become a passion. A lottery system is nothing more than a tool for doing that and to date this is probably the best and most complete one I have seen.
Even though Mark Bower, its creator calls Winning the Lottery in Three Steps a book, to me it is more of a lottery course. It has more techniques than I have seen in any one place. If you have read some of the other lottery books out there, this takes lotto number selection to the next level.
If you are completely new to this, it will take you some time to get acquainted with the concepts but you will not have to go through the entire course before you can start picking your numbers. How far you want to go with using all of the techniques is entirely up to you. You can use just a couple of the methods, all or somewhere in between.
Winning the Lottery in Three Steps is sold through Clickbank so it comes with their 60 day money back guarantee. Also, I don’t know if I am allowed to tell you this but I will anyway. I have been told that the refund rate for this product is around 5%. This means that out of 20 people, one person felt it was not for them and that the other 19 felt that Winning the Lottery in Three Steps had real value.
I hope this review has been helpful in deciding whether or not to purchase this product.
