So, it occurred to me that I was GAMBLING and facing those 1:10,000 odds, not playing strategy to better my odds. That's when I decided to do historical analysis to try and locate the bias within the particular set of balls or machines they rotate.

I compiled a database of all draws from the PA Eve Daily number. Then I extract the data, further filter those numbers, and I have a better idea of what's going on.

I have 2 categories broken down into 3 bunches of numbers. The MOST category, which picks the most frequently drawn of the single 0 to 9 digits and the LEAST category which picks the least frequently drawn. The 3 groups are the time period in which I'm measuring the number of draws; since inception, 365 days and 30 days.

I'll use today's numbers to give an example.

The most drawn number of all time for the first digit is 0. Second digit is 8. Third is 6. So, under the MOST category under "Inception" you'll see the combo "086". I then lookup the last time this combination hit straight and the number of times that has been drawn. The second combo down is the second most drawn numbers for each position. I do the top 4 drawn digits.

Likewise, under "One Year" there's 8-3-7. That means the number 8 has been drawn the most times in the first position over the last 365 days. A difference for the 365/30 day numbers is the number of draws in that time period also contains the all-time number of draws after the slash.

In the case of a tie, the number drawn more recently wins.

The LEAST category is done the same way, only the sort order is opposite. That means the 9-5-0 combo under the "Inception" group means the number 9 is drawn the least amount of times in the first position, 5 is drawn the least in the second, and 0 is drawn the least in the third. In th....
