after being slapped for posting to an inappropriate thread , i'd like to open a new one dedicated to our expert lotto software.



there's a beta version of our new optimizer plugin, which you may download and try out. The plugin appears as a new filter in the Filters menu.

Then you can select a set of numbers and let the Optimizer to cover all pairs/triplets/quads combinations of these numbers with as few lines from your favorite wheel/file as possible.



E.g. you may choose the range of numbers to be 1 to 16, and then optimize your lines to cover all triplets from your 16 numbers with as few original lines as possible.



The plugin dowload link is here.



You will also need the new version of the Expert Lotto library.

    Todd might delete this, I don't know, why don't you just make predictions here at the forum using your software?

    That way you can then show people what it does, you can tell people about your software only so long as it is relevant or related to your prediction.

    So start making predictions and show your software that way.

      The best predictions would be for games that everybody can use, like MegaMillions and or PowerBall, but it could be any predictions at all.

      What about Texas games?

        ok, we'll post some predictions here. but pls remember that expert lotto is just a tool helping you to implement your own lottery strategy.

        so our predictions will be based on our strategy, which may not be the best one.

          If it is best for you then post numbers for any of the pick 5 or cash 5 games on the U.S.A. Like TXCash5 and or TX2Step games.

          The TXCash5 is a 5/37 game with no bonus ball.

          And the TX2Step is a 4/35 + 1/35 game.

          Try either of them or both, please.

          Thank you very much.

              http://www.txlottery.org/

















              actually our strategy needs at least 100-200 past draws to work . but thanx for the link anyway, we'll import the numbers into our database.



              btw, is there any way we could download the complete history not just each year in a separate link?

                Well, welcome on the forums ExpertLotto.

                I have some simple questions as I'm always interested in new ideas. You posted about your optimiser. I have tested your optimiser and can't say I realise what it does or it doesn't. Can you give an explanation of this system?

                Furthermore, what this has to do with wheels as you said? I see no relevance to that at all. It is just a filtering procedure or I miss something here? BTW, the coverage you define in the optimiser based on what?

                If you have something to do, at least do it well...

                  Yes the links are here, if the history is not long enough then you will need a different state and game, one that has been arround longer than Texas.

                  Here are the links:

                  Good luck.

                    sorry again for my post in your thread.



                    as you said, the optimizer is just a filter but it can be used to optimize any wheel.



                    what it does is quite simple. e.g. you can start with a file of 5000 random lines for a 6/49 lottery. these lines cover all 18k+ triplet combinations possible. so you are guaranteed to get at least one 'match 3' prize regardless of the actuall winning numbers.

                    now you can run your file through the optimizer and only about 2500 lines will be left. but these 2500 lines again cover all triplet combinations. of course going from 5000 to 2500 is no big deal.



                    but you can choose a smaller set of number for triplet combinations, e.g 1-15 and again the optimizer will try to take as few lines from your starting file as possible to cover all triplet combinations from your 15 numbers.

                    the same applies for pairs and quads.



                    the coverage calculation in the filter window is based on the same algorithm. each 6 number line covers 20 distinct triplets (in a 6/49 lottery). so the optimizer checks each line to see how many distinct triplets(pairs/quads) are covered by your file from the total list of triplet combinations that can be created from the number range selected in the filter window.



                    i hope this makes any sense.

                      I tested it and in my opinion it's a really great software....and it seems is going to be even notably better very soon.

                        Fine, but have you considered that a wheel is already the minimum set of tickets required to guarantee e.g. a 3 match? By that means, you cannot optimize a wheel by any filtering process. Furthermore, a wheel can guarantee a 3 match in 163 tickets (3if6), 234 tickets (3if5), 537 (3if4) and 1259 tickets (3if3) at the worst case using all numbers of an 6/49 lottery. Why should I play 2500 lines when I can do the same with much fewer anyway (163 lines needed in your example)?

                        Additionaly, what's the meaning of having a random tickets file at the beginning? I assume we want to remove randomness as much as possible from any process, not to introduce more randomness!

                        If you have something to do, at least do it well...

                          So far it seems that program covers all 2/6 , 3/6 etc which  means it guaranties 20 3/6 if 6 . So, probably it easily can go further to guaranties of only one or couple of  3/6 , 3/5, 4/5  etc...in a very small amount of lines, by covering only one or few triplets, quads etc..

                            of course when the wheel is already optimized (e.g. created by cover master) then the optimizer won't do anything at all.

                            but it is handy when your favorite lottery strategy generates (after some filtering) some 500 lines and you wish to optimize them to cover as many triplets of your favorite hot numbers as possible.



                            i chose the random file as an example only. the problem is the demo allows 100 lines (tickets) only so it's not easy to test the optimizer.

                              Test the Sums filter, it seems to eliminate the combinations between the sum choices rather then outside which would be more useful to remove the least desirable highest and lowest sum lines.  BobP
