Number histories and Matrix changes


I read on one of the threads that number histories are going to go away when the matrix changes. 

I hope it isn't so.  Seems a minor savings compared to the loss, for those who don't happen to believe matrix changes necessarily represent a total change in number behaviors.

I've always found it a minor irritant that the current histories end at 2000, and I have to get the 1990s histories from other sites.

Just a thought.

Lottery Post will not remove the history, if that's what you're implying.

Also, USA Mega has the COMPLETE history of Mega Millions, going back to the first drawing of The Big Game.

Numbers seem to have a "mind of their own" so have to agree that although they will likely scrap all the old ballsets, install new ones, the game is the game and will continue with similar number affinities the old game had. Minor irritant about sums it up.

Another thing interesting to me is that this is the first change Mega Millions will have made which is not during a Mercury retrograde period. It began during Mercury retrograde, all matrix changes made during MR. Perhaps we'll be able to predict draws better because of the latest one. Naaaaaah, that's too much to hope for!!

I wasn't 'implying' anything. Just asking in an oblique sort of way. J

Interesting. I wasn't aware of the Mercury retrograde history you mentioned. Might be better, as you suggest, though my own recent history of prediction isn't something I'd like to keep going.

Thanks both of you,

All game drawing histories do not go back to 2000. Some go back much farther. In any case, I loaded all the data history my data provider provided to me. If there is past history for a game that I do not have loaded, then I would certainly consider seeking it out elsewhere and trying to import it into my database, but I have not had a single request for that for any game, so I have not expended the effort that would be required.

"Might be better, as you suggest, though my own recent history of prediction isn't something I'd like to keep going."    Applies to mine lately too ..... couldn't be farther off base.

Evidently Konane and I are the only people who use such things. Probably not worth the effort to put them in the DB. But if you want them, I'll be happy to send you the PB and MM files, text or in a spreadsheet, all the way back. I have some of the others too, text files only, if you want them... can't name them at the moment.

Konane..... Ya been reading my mail. Maybe we need to pool our numbers and play what's left that neither of us would have played.... get rich quick.
