May was a bust... $101 spent (from april's $500 fluke win) $4 won (all on PA cash5)
June gets cheaper... Tonight 1/5 on cash5, 0/6 on match 6... cost to play $3
tomorrow is another $3 day... then sun. and mon. only $1 ;-)
June cost will be $66 (again, from april's $500). Then for July I will be back to spending my own money, so more cutbacks will be made.
"paper" testing of scenarios on the Chain Reaction program are ongoing, again... no live tests planned unless I get AmAzInG backtest results (like 1 hit a month). This program is constantly changing... The first full run is testing the first 3 combos drawn in the PA mid-day daily number (pick3).... finding ALL integer seeds from one to a Million that produce that number... then they will be compared in excel to look for similarities.
If that produces desireable results, the program will be set to generate a year beyond the most recent draw. IF this works I will keep the output (a.k.a. "the List") as guarded as a winning powerball ticket. I want to beat them at their own game... I do not know if it can even be done, but if it can, I WILL do it, and most likely by summer's end. The actual live test criteria would be EVERY draw matches, but I might play around if it backtests 1 hit a month (rather than the 1 hit every 1.5 years of LRS). Think of the possibilities...
If the list works on a monthly basis, it would pay for month-long tests of ALL the games
If the list works on a weekly basis, it would fund "Jack"ing every powerball draw (like Jack Whittaker... play 100 QP's to win the PB)
Let's not even dare to imagine the list would exactly match... I would have to play musical retailers to keep making tax-free bucks
Seriously, it is keeping me sharp with VB AND excel, more so than LRS even.
I can't wait to see how LRS handles South Carolina pick3/4/palmettoC5 numbers.
Dusted off an old idea from back in the heyday... According to some, wishing is accomplished thru lucid visualization. So I saved a copy of the powerball numbers results page and tweaked the code so that my numbers appear with the date I will play them... Even made the scrolling marquee read "One winner in the state of Pennsylvania..." and reset the jackpot amounts to $15 Million Annuity and $7.1 Million Cash
Now before I update sheets or go online to "window shop" for Myrtle Beach direct oceanfront beach "palaces" that I could never afford... I point the browser to my local copy of the "dream results" page.
It's as lucid a visualization as I can muster. Glad my HTML skillz aren't going to waste :-(
I might try this with the palottery page to "wish" those Cash5 and Match6 numbers. And that is about as Mystical as I get... Sounds stupid,I know... but there are no negative effects to channeling positive energy... right?
oh well... back to my spreadsheets...
