I am listening to snow patrols new album while writing this, its excellent, Called Out In the Dark is a really good track, anyway to the research.

Its long been my belief that I could get a computer to analyse any set of combinations from any pool / pick lottery providing real odds on the entire draw. LSA is an excellent example of single number ball placement probability theory however the goal was to produce an algorithm that could be applied to any combination of numbers be it sets of 2,3,4,5 or even 6 balls , the problem is that there are billions of combinations and no software can handle such massive amounts of data in a fast enough time to make a viable consumer app.

Well I am excited to announce after running my quad core PC 24 hours a day for a little over 2 years with custom software I wrote I have completed this mammoth task.

I will use the world's most favourite draw to show this example 6/49

I can now put proof to my theory that

A: The way you place the numbers on a single line (ticket) effects your chances of a win in the whole pool.

B: The way you place the numbers on multiple tickets can amplify your chances of a win from the entire pool.

Example using the 4 numbers 01 10 20 30

In the 6/49 you have to pick 6 numbers on 1 line, now with my new research I am able to find where to put numbers on a ticket to maximize win coverage, and what numbers work best.

....Ball 1 | Ball 2 |
