There were 16 unique numbers in the last six draws for California’s Fantasy 5 on 10/29/07, that is an all time low in the table I’ve built that records its daily count. It has the last 3300 or so observations; one day I’ll get around to back-filling the rest of the dataset though 3300 will do for now. The related fields in the table tend to show that when a low unique count shows up, there’ll be “replacement” or turnover, where numbers that haven’t shown up in a while fall back into favor. The way more interesting metric is that there’s been a huge run of pairs of numbers repeating in the last 13 draws and it could recur yet again on 10/29/07. I’m going to be playing my pesos today by only playing the last 5 or maybe even 4 draws only and that pairs or three numbers from x (1 – 6) draws back will repeat yet again.
|Date||Draw1||Draw2||Draw3||Draw4||Draw5||Draws Back||Actual Pairs|
|10/28/07||7||12||16||35||39||1,2,3,9||35,39, 16,39, 7,35, 12,35|
|10/26/07||2||10||16||25||39||2,3,7||2,16, 2,25, 2,25|
|10/23/07||2||23||25||27||34||4,5,8,9||2,25, 2,27, 2,23, 23,25|
In a post from a few months ago, I mentioned that all 5 numbers will have been picked from the last 4 draws, well that occurred on 10/14/07. No I didn’t win on that day, it snuck by since I was playing a slightly different strategy.
On the programming side, I did get further along on building code for wheeling or generating all combinations of 5 from a pool of 15 numbers. A simple version is working; I’ve got to expand on it for it to be useful. I just got sidetracked with so many other things. Plus I think I’ll adapt it for pick 3 games first as a way of getting the overall concept working on a faster timetable…. this is just a brief update on the previous blog. I have more building and writing to do on that topic as well.
