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
|Match 6 OF 6||JACKPOT||1:12,271,512|
|Match 5 OF 6||Approximately $1,000 (Pari-Mutuel)||1:48,696|
|Match 4 OF 6||Approximately $40 (Pari-Mutuel)||1:950.18|
|Match 3 OF 6||$3||1:53.45|
|Match 2 OF 6||Free Quick Pick||1:7.31|
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.
