gotta use the averages in a system!
the average is total numbers drawn times the total number of balls
pick 6 40 draws==240# divided by 46 balls=each number should have an average of 5.217 or 5.22 per number if you have a number only came out once or a number that came out 10 times both of those would be in my wheel---------does work but does take some time the secret is not giving up and playing mutiple games
If you check the Lottery Post statistics pages, you'll see that concept illustrated for you. The right side of the page graphically shows each number's draw frequency, compared to the expected frequency in that game. You can select many different sizes of draw history, and each one recalculates the expected frequencies, based on the depth of history, number of balls in the machine, and number of balls drawn.
For example, check the New Jersey Pick 6 stats page. Each stats page can be navigated to by going to the Results page, then clicking the state, then clicking the game, and choosing Drawing Statistics from the popup menu.
There are other powerful functions you can find in the same manner, like Past Drawing History, and a very powerful and flexible Search feature.
