In this blog post I am going to be talking about interpreting the data found on LSA's reports
There are many powerful reports in LSA and I am going to blog each one over the next few weeks simply explaining the thought behind making each report and how to get the most from them.
I am going to start with one of my favourites, one I find myself using not only for choosing numbers to play but also referencing to prove theories while developing LSA.
The True Hot, Warm and Cold report.
This report is split into two areas of data
The top half of the report shows you how many draws pass before a number becomes due to appear.
This statistic is a global fact and not effected by past draws, its calculated from every possible combination in the draw your playing.
So that you better understand the global report look at Ball 5 position 5 with a value of 2,118,760
This means that ball 5 will appear in position 5 once every 2,118,760 draws, which happens to be the total combinations availible in this draw - The EuroMillions
This one is easy to prove as only one combination can have ball 5 as a 5th ball position and that combination is 1 2 3 4 5, so the odds are 1 in 2,118,760 to hit 1 2 3 4 5.
If you add any 5 together one from each position you will see the period of that combinations appearence in the EuroMillions
1 12 27 36 50 = 92 draws to appear
46 47 48 49 50 = 2,166,913 draws to appear
Theses values represent draws, its not saying in the Euromillions 1 12 27 36 50 will appear once every 92 draws, what it is saying is that in the EuroMillions on average
over a 92 draw period each of the numbers from 1 12 27 36 50 will have appeared in each position at least once.
I can almost sense your brains ticking away now, yes you can choose 3 numbers, hence reduce the field and get a acurate hit 3 period range.
Upto this point this is all global, no past draw data is used so it is a golden reference template for this draw (never changes )
The second half of the report shows when the number is due
This is done by taking the global due value as shown in the top half of the report and subtracting the average appearances of each ball to date.
You can see in the top part of this report that ball 1 will appear in position 1 once every 10 draws
This matches the global value in the second half of the report, this simply means ball 1 appeared as the lowest ball in the last draw and is not due for 10 draws.
However ball 2 is due to appear, the global findings (from LSA's Last Ball Out Report) tell us ball 2 appeared as the lowest ball 40 draws ago.
We know globally ball 2 will appear in position 2 once every 11 draws so 11 - 40 = -29
Statistically ball 2 as a lowest ball is now well overdue and should be considered a hot number.
All other hot warm and cold systems I have seen purely use past draws for findings.
Using every combination possible gives a much more statistically accurate picture of the draws current state
The calculations involved in this report would take days to create by hand.
LSA produces the report in under a second.
