# I feel a jackpot win coming.

Published:

It seems like every time I come up with an algorithm to add to my program that makes me think "Gee, it can't get any better than this.", I always end up finding another one and the thought keeps repeating itself. I have applied my system primarily on Pick 5 and Pick 6. Most of the algorithms I've come up with can be applied to both Pick 5 and Pick 6. Each program for the 2 games receives it's own copy of a newly created algorithm, with appropriate changes made to each game's copy. A few months ago, the simulations I was running for both games were showing "potential" odds of 90% or better. I am very excited to say now that the simulations are showing even better numbers. However, there are pitfalls when using a higher aggression of filtering. A higher aggression of filtering can also mean less hits on lower tier prizes other than the jackpot. For example, the prizes and odds for Hoosier Lotto is:

Pick 6 of 48

Wins

Odds

Match 6 OF 6 JACKPOT1:12,271,512
Match 5 OF 6Approximately \$1,000 (Pari-Mutuel)1:48,696
Match 4 OF                  6Approximately                  \$40 (Pari-Mutuel)1:950.18
Match 3 OF 6\$31:53.45
Match 2 OF 6Free Quick Pick1:7.31

With mild aggression filtering, I can frequently get several 2 of 6's and 3 of 6's playing \$10 on Hoosier Lotto, but since I'm going after the jackpot, I've decided to make the aggression high. When I say make the aggression high, I mean making the algorithms look for sets with more specific defined characteristics. This will in effect eliminate sets that could possibly win lower tier prizes, but at the same time increase the chance of choosing a set that could potentially be a jackpot winner. The main reason I'm excited more than ever is because the recently added algorithms has allowed me to lower the aggression on many of my other algorithms, but at the same time giving me "potential" odds that are still 90% or better. I feel as if a jackpot win is getting closer.

You should try the Maddog challenges, it gives you the opportunity to pick 12 white balls and 4 bonus balls for a total of almost 3200 possible picks! You could showcase the prowess of your aggressive algorithms and their picking power.

Thanks for the comment. I haven't updated the PowerBall program in quite a while. I switched over to Pick 5 and Pick 6 simply because the PowerBall numbers are simply so huge despite the millions of combinations that my algorithms can filter. Lately, if I decide to play PowerBall, I'll just get a few quick picks. If I do Maddog's challenge, I'll probably end up using the very basic algorithms. Either way, hopefully a 6 out of 6 will show up soon.:D
