2007 Project - Formulas, Possibilities and Odds


I was sitting back last night relaxing from the Keno analysis update project and having a beer when I thught of the many new games proposed by Lottery Post members. Most of them would be mathematically improbable, as attractive to the player they may seem. "Where do they get their ideas?" I wondered. "Did they do the math?" I came to the realization that nowhere on the 'Net - at least as far as I know - is there a page where the formulas, possibilities and odds for all the hits and all the totals for all possible lottery games are listed for ready reference, similar to that which I've done for sums and positional frequencies and what I have already posted for Keno.

So that's my 2007 project. Everything from 2/2 to 7/100. I've given it a tentative start, and it looks reasonably good. I have the software to do the project - I use it to do the games anyway. Problems? It's going to be a gold-plated monster to proofread. If I decide to expand it to include bonus ball games it'll be three or more times the work originally envisioned. It has to be readily accessible and readable, but hard to copy.

As I said, I've started. Whether or not I'll post as I make progress or wait until the page is complete, I haven't decided yet. But I'll be on a mission - as soon as the Keno update is complete.
