This might be old hat to the filtering buffs out there but I want to bring it to the attention of those not familiar with it.
Watch the last digit in your jackpot game draws. (Example: Last night's IL Little Lotto was 15-17-30-31-38...the last digits are 5-7-0-1-8).
Very rarely does a last digit appear 3 times in a draw (1-1-1-2-3) or 2 last digits repeat in the same draw (1-1-2-2-3). This refers to overall repeats, not consecutive repeats. The most common pattern is one repeat last digit in a 5/39 game and the second most common are no repeat last digits. The rest can be safely filtered out. In a 6/49 game this pattern will vary somewhat but not by much from what I've seen.
Study your game to see the pattern and apply your filters to save some bucks on unlikely combinations.
As my buddy Lottoways says, "May the Lotto Spirits be with you". (BTW he is undergoing some work on his ticker and a shout-out or quiet encouragement for his speedy recovery would be cool. The IL players miss his input.)
Have a great day everyone!
