Test one involved seeding RANDOMIZE in a loop of the numbers 1 to 1,000,000 (one at a time)... generating a random list of numbers equal in length to the draw history... comparing for matches, then printing out the highest ones found.
UNFORTUNATELY there was no great news.
There are 1,570 draws so far on PA mid-day pick3 and the best list only matched 9. YES technically this beats the game on paper (cost to play taken from 9 straight hits = a profit of $2,930) but it is NOT what I was hoping for.
It is better than LRS, which picked 2 straight hits for the mid-day...
but I must move on.
trying different seeds next, ROUND vs INT for the pick, decimals etc...
I am looking for 227 hits, that averages one a week.
So I did show good results if it were a ball drawn game, but BAD results trying to synch 2 RNGs... Ideal would be of course 1,570 matches...
not there yet, but NOT giving up either, the potential returns are too great!
still haven't spent a dime so it's all good.
