Take a look at the usamega statistics for PB for the last 50 draws.  There you will see the numbers 16-35-36-47 all sitting together in a row,.  It has been my theory for quite some time, and my experience, that the numbers often sit next to each other on the statistics charts,.  It is also my experience that the numbers most often chosen for PB in the section about 1/3 to 1/4 from the top on the 50 day statistics  but the most accurate placing is in that position on the 40 day statiistics chart which is 16 draws old,.  I also feel it is best to pick numbers leaving out the numbers 1 thru 15 unless one of those numbers just cannot be ignored for some statistical reason, ie placement to numbers etc.  I will be playing in three states for the next few weeks as I have some long term tickets playing in Wisc. Ind. and Pa.  Got 3 numbers last week.  16 36 47.

    When I checked the previous 50 drawings for the last 100 drawings, 65% of the winning numbers had hit 3-6 times in the previous 50 drawings.  16-35-36-47 hit seven times in the last 50 drawings, have you tested your theory with any success?

      Thanks  RJOH for backtesting that but we are approaching this from different perspectives.  If there is a way of bringing up old messages, you will note that in the past few years I have pointed out this strange happening on three different occassions.  I don't expect to win 66% of the time, and believe me I know what you are saying in playing those odds, but since I have seen this happen on mulitple occassions it looks to me like I should play tickets which at least are in the running when that occures again.    It doesn't happen all that often BUT you narrow your number selection down to 10 to 12 numbers sometimes and stand a chance of getting hit by the bullet of fate by being in the front of the crowd if you know what I mean.    I have several charts which I have perfected, or so I like to think, that show have these numbers fall in proximity to one another.  I also have shown you that it occurs quite often that the PB is drawn 12 to 13 numbers away from past drawn numbers.  Not all of the time but enough to assist my decisions whether they be right or wrong.  I think that occured the drawing before last but I don't have my numbers right in front of me now.

        Sounds like a plan lottograndma, good luck to you. 

        I'm going to be watching this group: 01 05 06 09 14 20 25 26 30 34 39 which hit five times in the last 50 draws.  If no one wins this Wednesday, I may head over to Indiana and cash in my tickets from Oct9 and pick up some new ones.

          RJOh,

          You say 16-35-36-47 hit 7 times in the last 50 drawings?  I did a search and did not come close to that.

          In the past year, those four numbers were only drawn together once - this past Saturday.  Prior to that, at most 2 of the numbers appeared together, and that happened three times:






          Wed, Sep 29, 2004Multi-StatePowerball16-28-33-35-37, Powerball: 17, Power Play: 3
          Sat, Jul 31, 2004Multi-StatePowerball14-31-35-45-47, Powerball: 35, Power Play: 3
          Wed, Apr 7, 2004Multi-StatePowerball02-07-16-35-37, Powerball: 10, Power Play: 5



          In fact, I can't come up with ANY drawing in the past year that had those four numbers together.  The best I can come up with is 2 drawings for CA SuperLotto Plus that had 3 of the 4 numbers:

            Todd,

            I didn't mean as a group, but individually.  I just looked at the last 50 draws as shown on the history page at USA MEGA.  I think that's the way Lottograndma was looking at them, the four numbers she mentioned were together on the same page and had hit seven times in the last 50 draws.
