Here's an amazing, FREE lotto system - for playing and winning lotto or keno.

It's based on a remarkable mathematical fact about lotto numbers and keno numbers. After you read it, you'll never look at the lottery the old way again !

 

Let me ask you a question. Which bet would you rather take:

-guessing six lotto numbers between 1 and 50 ?
or
-guessing six lotto numbers between 1 and 15 ?

Incredible as it seems, most WINNING LOTTO NUMBERS can be mathematically represented as numbers between 1 and 15 !

 

This will take some explaining...

HOW IT WORKS:

It's actually very simple. The idea occurred to me when I thought about how a computer software program would store a winning lotto, keno or lottery number on disk. Storage space is always an issue with computers, so data compression is used whenever possible. To compress a lotto number, the software might store the "delta" of each number instead of the lotto number itself.

What's a delta? The delta is the difference between a number and the previous number.

 

For example, look at this winning lotto number:

 

 

3-9-18-19-27-33

 

 

Now here is the same number, represented as deltas:

 

 

3-6-9-1-8-6

 

All the numbers are smaller, yet it still represents, and can be converted back into the same winning lotto number!

I created this number by subtracting each of the lotto numbers from the number right before it. The first number is still three because there is no number previous to three. For the second number, 9-3=6, third number, 18-9=9, fourth number, 19-18=1, fifth number, 27-19=8 , and sixth number, 33-27=6.

To turn the delta numbers back into the original winning lotto number or keno number, we do a series of simple additions, always adding the result of the addition just done to the next number in the series: The first number is 3, second number, 3+6=9, third number, 9+9=18, fourth number, 18+1=19, fifth number,19+8=27, sixth number, 27+6=33.

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?

It means that you can pick lotto numbers and keno numbers by guessing numbers between 1 and 15 instead of 1 and 50! Numbers higher than 15 will occur, but 90% of the time they don't! Please bear in mind that all the examples on this page assume a six-digit game, with numbers from 1 - 50. The values in these examples will vary, based on your game (the software can adjust these values automatically.)

WHAT'S HAPPENING? WHY DOES THIS WORK?

It works because the smaller numbers represent the typical distribution of winning keno and lotto numbers. In other words, in a six digit game like this, the numbers are usually spaced 1-15 digits from each other. Since this spacing stays somewhat consistent from winning number to winning number, our scheme to represent them as smaller delta numbers works.

By guessing deltas that follow our rules instead of guessing the keno or lotto numbers themselves, your guess will have the same number distribution characteristics as other winning numbers. Does this give you an advantage? Well, read on.

WAIT! THERE'S MORE! IT GETS BETTER!

I studied the distribution of delta numbers in a year's worth of winning numbers from the New York, California and Michigan lotteries. When I did this, I discovered something exciting but at first, truly puzzling. They are not randomly distributed, but instead have a clear bias toward smaller numbers!

.

This chart shows the distribution of delta numbers in several months' worth of Michigan lotto drawings:

 

01 +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
02 +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
03 ++++++++++++++++++++
04 +++++++++++++++++++++++
05 +++++++++++++++++++++++
06 +++++++++++++++++
07 ++++++++++++++++++++
08 ++++++++++
09 +++++++++++
10 ++++++++++
11 +++++
12 +++++++++++
13 ++++++
14 ++++++++
15 ++++
16 ++++++
17 ++++
18 +
19 ++
20 +++++
21 ++
22
23
24 +

 

It turns out that nearly 60% of the time, a delta calculated from a winning number will be SIX or less! 30% of the time, the delta will be THREE or less!

In fact, ONE is the single most popular number, occurring almost 15% of the time. That translates to more than half the time in any given six-number pick. The predominance of the number ONE means that adjacent number pairing in winning lotto numbers must be quite common (and it is quite common, just look at any series of winning lotto numbers.)

Therefore, most of the Delta numbers you will be guessing can be picked from an even smaller set of numbers!

Why the low number bias exists in our calculated delta numbers is a challenge to explain. I expected to find a nice even distribution, perhaps clustered around 7 or 8, since that would be the average spacing when 50 is divided by six numbers. Instead, I see numbers below 8 coming up much more often. Why?

Well, there are valid statistical reasons this happens. When you consider that the sum of all the Deltas have to add up to the highest lotto digit, it's apparent that there isn't room for many large numbers. But the patterns I'm seeing still often seem out-of-the-ordinary. One possibility is that the balls in many lotto picking machines at times do not thoroughly mix. The excess of small delta numbers, and especially the predominance of ONE, mean that balls that went in the lotto machine next to each other are coming up together! It's not obvious in the lotto numbers themselves, but the delta calculation reveals the pattern.

To visualize this, imagine a lotto number machine where the balls all enter lined up in numerical order (like they do here in Michigan.) Now imagine that the numbers are picked without mixing the balls. What would happen? Well the picks would still be somewhat random, of course. But the balls nearest the exit ports of the machine would be the ones most likely to be picked. And All the balls near the exit port are consecutive numbers, since that's how they went into the machine. You might not know what numbers they are. But if you track Deltas, those number pairs would show up as ones. Now, this is an extreme example. But if the balls don't mix enough, you can see how some of these tendencies could remain.

Lending support to this theory are apparent trends (look at the raw data) in the frequency of number ONE in the deltas. The beginning of the chart shows lots of ones. Later on, they taper off, then start appearing more often again. This sort of behavior might occur with changes in the operation of the lotto machine. Perhaps some weeks the balls are allowed to mix longer than at other times, owing to TV schedules or other factors. An astute observer might pay attention to these trends and play lots of adjacent pairs when there are many delta ONEs coming up.

    In a 6/49 lottery there are 13,983,816 possibilities. Since there are six numbers drawn you would have five deltas for each draw, a total of 69,919,080 deltas. Running a program to extract all deltas for all draws yields:

      So you are saying that it's a waste of time? Or is there a way to utilize this, considering the Delta number 1 comes out the majority of the time?

      Thanx for the info.

        What you refer to as delta (the different between adjacent numbers) is called gap in some lottery programs.  I usually limit the gaps in my MegaMillions predictions to 22 since 73% of the winning combinations have had gaps no bigger than 22.  While 50% of all gaps in MM winnings combinations are 8 or less, only 2% of those combination have had only gaps of 8 or less.  I think several LP members have started threads about this subject before but used a different term to describe it.  Good luck to you.

          I have tried the gaps method with Fantasy 5 and California's Super Lotto Plus.  I designed spreadsheets that would figure the gaps between position 1 and position 2, etc.  Then it would take the last 50 draws and use those gaps to add numbers to the last draw.  I was not successful and I tried it for a couple of months.  I'm not saying someone won't find a way to win with it, but I didn't!!

          I have also tried this (in a way) with pick 3.  I used the last 30 draws and my spreadsheet kept track of the numerical difference between draws.  Those differences were then added to the last draw to give me 29 picks.  That was not very successful either!

          Now that Ricky has given us such great programs for Pick 3 and Pick 4 and they now include "width" options, I may take another look at the gaps for Pick 3 and Pick 4.

            Actually, my post was FYI. Do with the data what you wish. I was just curious about your post and, since I had the 6/49 program in place, modded it to extract deltas.

            I would assume that, over the long run, the probabilities would dictate that the deltas would more or less conform to the data model.

            You're quite welcome - my pleasure.

              Well you're exactly the type of person I want to attract, because the long method...........takes too long for uncomputerized people like me...LOL

              An expert in statistical data, common sense, and some luck. I can see that in the way you write, you're more knowledgeable on that stuff. I just can't keep up.

              To tell you the truth, I haven't the foggiest, what to do with those Deltas and Omegas, and Triads......

              It just looks interesting, when the subject of the number 1 which keeps creeping up all the time, and how we can take advantage of that....

                Pac,

                since you do your workouts by hand (or so it seems), you would most likely pick a "key" number. Your "deltas" would then represent the distance between that number and its neighbors. This is not to say that you can only do that with deltas, but it is what you can do in a reasonable amount of time on paper.

                Lets say you REALLY liked #22. You make it your center number (or wherever).
                You then add 2, for #24 and then add
                8 more for #32 
                Subtract 14 (a "big" delta) from 22 for #8
                Subtract 6 more for #2 giving you:

                2,8,22,24,32

                (deltas in position order 6,14,2,8)

                (deltas in numerical order 2,6,8,14)

                In neo-conned Amerika, bank robs you.

                  I've been using the free version of analysis lotto for about 2 weeks now and did ok the first week but now I can't even get one number. I tried a couple of methods and trying others. One didn't work 2 bad with megamillions it actually gave me all the drawing number repeatedly but all in different lines. One I got the mega ball and 2 white balls. It worked using the filter box. Im trying this method on others one lets see what happens.
