While still playing along with my one LRS PB pick per draw, I decided that since time is running out on the current PB matrix I needed something new.
Enter VIZ (no acronym this time, just shortened Visualization). The project has several goals, all hinged around announcer numbers. Sometimes my terms don't gel with the greater community, so to clarify my take on the following...
ANNOUNCER- for a number in the most recent draw, this is a list of all other numbers that came up immediately after everytime that number was drawn.
DUE- or more accurately D.U.E.... based on position, the last number drawn generates a list of announcers and I want to count how many times the announcer list numbers went (D)own, went (U)p, or were (E)qual.
O/E - Odd or Even, applied to the same list of announcers.
Offset Announcers - the heart of VIZ, a D-1 announcer gathers data about the last draw and what has come up in thenext draw after that number, a D-2 looks at the number 2 draws ago and it's data is what came up 2 draws after it... my current sheet goes to D-13. (untested, D-8 caught 2+1 then flopped).
The main problem with VIZ is that I must fill the positional data in manually (or cut-n-paste), which makes it highly impractical for a daily game.
The main hypothesis is range reduction can be achieved by correlating announcer data via offsets... more than one source for my data about what might be next. What do these offset vectors have in common?
my data gathered includes a D.U.E. count, an O/E count and a RANGE (Highest observed and Lowest observed) DUE is ALWAYS based on the last draw. the purpose of DUE is to cut the observed range down... does the data indicate that the number will be down or up from the last draws number in that position? this could effectively help cut the observed range down some.
I am feeling the pressure of the looming new matrix, I went from D-8 to D-13 for this coming draw... if that doesn't work I may jump right to D-20 for saturday. Right now I am just observing the flurry of info, I extract the most common number (via the MODE function) from each position to play as a single line, but that is not always the best way... the search goes on.
So that's what I have been up to since learning of the PB matrix change coming... other than that I am out of ideas. (I guess over the years I chased some far fetched systems...) So from now until the matrix change, I am doubling my lottery spending by playing the LRS line AND the VIZ line. (going against my philosophy of more than one ticket and all that... so what, 2009 will only cost me $208 TOTAL for 1 QP with the power play so I will splurge a little).
At least they will be keeping PB at $1/ticket unless you choose PP...
