Brad Duke did not win the lottery playing the 15 most draw numbers in the past six months when he won the PowerBall. In fact, not a single number drawn on 05/28/2005 was in the top 15 of the last 6 months.

05/28/2005 - PB draw date.
05-07-24-28-39(36) - Winning #'s.

Top 15 Most drawn numbers in the prior 6 months.

11 - 11 draws
10 - 8 draws
21 - 8 draws
32 - 8 draws
09 - 7 draws
23 - 7 draws
29 - 7 draws
33 - 7 draws
46 - 7 draws
18 - 6 draws
27 - 6 draws
44 - 6 draws
48 - 6 draws
49 - 6 draws
51 - 6 draws

The winning numbers drawn on 05/28/2005 were as following:
05 - 5 draws
07 - 5 draws
24 - 2 draws
28 - 3 draws
39 - 3 draws

As for the PowerBall #.. Well, that wasnt a common draw in the prior 6 months either. There were 4 other numbers drawn more often in the prior 6 months. '36' came in tied for 5th with 10 other numbers.

In a lot of readings he claimed to have played a wheel system with the most commonly drawn 15 numbers in the prior 6 months.

I think it's safe to say he was full of sh*t and just plain lucky.

    Are you sure you used the 42 drawings before 05/28/2005 ?  My data shows the following:

        I may have done a couple different draws then what you did. But regardless, still not top 15 #'s.

          Brad Duke did not win the lottery playing the 15 most draw numbers in the past six months when he won the PowerBall. In fact, not a single number drawn on 05/28/2005 was in the top 15 of the last 6 months.

          05/28/2005 - PB draw date.
          05-07-24-28-39(36) - Winning #'s.

          Top 15 Most drawn numbers in the prior 6 months.

          11 - 11 draws
          10 - 8 draws
          21 - 8 draws
          32 - 8 draws
          09 - 7 draws
          23 - 7 draws
          29 - 7 draws
          33 - 7 draws
          46 - 7 draws
          18 - 6 draws
          27 - 6 draws
          44 - 6 draws
          48 - 6 draws
          49 - 6 draws
          51 - 6 draws

          The winning numbers drawn on 05/28/2005 were as following:
          05 - 5 draws
          07 - 5 draws
          24 - 2 draws
          28 - 3 draws
          39 - 3 draws

          As for the PowerBall #.. Well, that wasnt a common draw in the prior 6 months either. There were 4 other numbers drawn more often in the prior 6 months. '36' came in tied for 5th with 10 other numbers.

          In a lot of readings he claimed to have played a wheel system with the most commonly drawn 15 numbers in the prior 6 months.

          I think it's safe to say he was full of sh*t and just plain lucky.

          I can only quote what Brad Duke said:

          "How to choose my lottery numbers started through a trial and error process. I just started playing number games with myself about how to capture the most diverse numbers. Then I looked at the most recent Powerball numbers over the last six months and took the set of 15 numbers that were most commonly coming up. My Powerball numbers were going to be those 15. So I starting messing around with it, and my number games got a little more complex and a little bigger. I was starting to win smaller amounts like $150 and $500."

          I've always assumed "most commonly coming up" meant a group of 15 numbers that were consistently matching some of the numbers; 2 and 3 numbers with an occasional 4 or 5 number match. He didn't say how long he played after he decided on his 15 numbers so only he knows if he used the most frequent numbers in an unknown 6 month period. Or he could have used a set of 15 "due numbers" (not necessarily the same 15 numbers) that were most commonly coming up.

          Not many large jackpot winners have said they used a system but we know 20% to 30% of the winners are self picks.

            At least he didn't try to sell that information and it was specific enough to be back checked.  You can't do that with many of the lottery systems being sold.

              The only thing I find unique about Brad Duke's story is he said he use a system. All of us using large jackpot game systems know they only have work once. Since Duke's system hasn't repeated a jackpot winner, there is probably nothing to sell.

                That may be true of most systems but not combinations.

                           Yes, but imagine this,

                       on PB you pick the #set 5-9-21-35-38+20  on 12/21/96 so you got 5+0 pretty nice haul aye ?

                      so now you decide, "i will continue to play that same #set on both MM & PB"

                      you have to stick to that #set for 15 years to win the MM JP, nice haul is right, but who could hang on that long ?

                       

                      @ RJoh yes , very nice find.

                        It probably doesn't but when the code in a program is revised to check for certain conditions more easily, things never imagined sometimes show up that been there all along.
