Basically, I use the History draw method to help me define what numbers I want to play. Problem with this method is, I do not clearly understand how you truely define a DUE number (not HOT or COLD). The current method I use is creating TOO many numbers to create a combination from. So, how do I more easily reduce the number set or better define a due number?

Any suggestions and/or guidance as to how to easily define this and is it something I can semi-quasi-program into an excel formula or macro?

    A due number is basically a hot or average number that has been skipping it's usual time to be drawn.  It isn't cold or dead, more like it took a nap and can wake up at any moment.

    At times like this it is good to check everything is normal with the lottery game itself.  Sometimes there is a very good reason for a ball to change its ways such as the lottery tossing all their old ballsets and/or machines and replacing them with new or a switch to computer drawings.  BobP

      What's Hot and Cold ? Here is one way to look at it. It's the expected Math averagehit rate in a certain amount of draws. This is a good chart to copy until you are able to do it on the fly.  

        10 days    3 hits per number

        15            5

        20            6

        25            8

        30             9

        40            12

        50            15

        60 days    18 hits per number

       If you want to find out if a digit is overdue in a single position then divide the number of days by 3. 

       Ex:  Number #6 has been missing for 21 draws in first position.....so divide 21 by 3 =7 days out . It's just like a normal number missing in all positions for 7 days.  



      The only real failure .....is the failure to try.                               

                                    Luck is a very rare thing....... Odds not so much. 

                                    Odds never change .....but probability does. 

                                                                                             Win d

        I haven't really figured out how to handle hot/cold numbers well. When tracking the numbers for Fantasy 5 and Super lottto, the reuslts are almost always a mix of 1 or 2 cold, 1 or 2 on average, and 1 or 2 hot for every pick.

        You are a slave to the choices you have made.  jk
