Hi AlgorithmGuru,

Thanks a lot for the info. It is exactly what I've been looking for. I'll get the book somehow and... get my nose on the grindstone. It is obvious you do know your stuff. Thanks again for your help.

Best regards,

Hi AlgorithmGuru,

Thank you for your contribution. I find it very fair and sensible. I have my doubts, too, that past, independent occurrences can help with predicting new ones. So, all that remains is probability. But, maybe I’m wrong.

Your view is interesting but I don’t know what an XmR chart is. I’d appreciate it if you could give an example or indicate where I can get one.

Intuitively, I’m inclined to go for Markov chains/model (like somebody else suggested) as I think our problem is similar to predicting the weather. I’m only scratching the surface. My lack of training in maths will make it difficult, though. I must find a “hands-on” example. If I make any progress, I'll keep everybody posted.

Best regards,

If you use Bayes for pick 3, then you might think that all combinations will happen in 1000 drawings for pick 3. In the real world, that would just be too easy. Here we passed 3000 drawings and several combinations did not appear.

By randomness for 3000 drawings it could be "000" in pick 3 every time. In the real world, I cannot believe that the organizers of a lottery will let this pass.

Hi SergeM,

That's an interesting viewpoint. Thank you for the contribution. I'll check it.

Best regards to you both,
