For those of you who like tracking patterns (as I like to do), here is one that rather gave me a surprise.
This would apply whether you play a P3, P4, or P5 game. Of course you should use Excel or some similiar spreadsheet and be able to program VBA. Life would be so much easier.
Somewhere within your history of past draws, select a number of cells at random. I play the P5 game exclusively so I selected seven (7) cells. The one criteria I insisted upon was that the seven cells had to be at least fifty draws back. Then I set about writing code to determine how often a drawn number appears within one of the Constant Cells.
I fully expected this pattern to result positive in about 10% of the cases. Much to my surprise the answer was closer to 63%.
I rearranged my Constant Cells several times over the last few days expecting to find one "set" that would result in a 10% positive hit. That was not to be. No matter where I put these seven cells, the answer I always achieved was 63% give or take a point or two.
