A while back I posted a theory about the numbers coming up based on the way the balls line up prior to the drop and how sometimes certain rows or columns are chosen.  The thread is located here for those who are interested - http://www.lotterypost.com/thread/83317.  I went ahead and updated the file to just show the last 20 draws and patterns, the one on Nov 17 is interesting, 4 of the 5 balls were on the same row.  May all just be nothing, but it's interesting to look at sometimes.

    Hi, for some reason I had it in my head that the numbers in the first column dropped were rotated to the last position for the next drawing.  Do you know if that is the case.  If it is then one should avoid those numbers in row 4 etc. as that is the group usually not chosen.  I thought that if the columns 123456 were for this drawing 234561 would be the next drawing and then345612 etc.  If this is truly the way they are drawn then  new patterns emerge.

      A little OT, but did you see the new feature that can help you link back to other messages?  Go to the topic you referenced, and go all the way to the bottom, where you'll see the link to the topic, like this:


      You can click the link there (not here, but in the bottom of the topic), and it will automatically be copied to the clipboard, ready to paste.

      It's nice to have the "cleaned up" version of the link to post in messages.

        lottograndma - I tried watching the videos at powerball.com to see if I could see any ball numbers but couldn't see them, so I think I'll email MUSL and see what they say.

        Todd - I wasn't aware of the thread address being at the bottom of the thread.  I had done a search for the old post and found it and just used what the search returned.  Thanks for the information.

          The original NY Lotto draw machine did not mix the balls.
