    Lucky:

    I don't want to pry, but I'd be interested in knowing whether you've had much success doing it that way, if you'd care to confide.

        Lucky:

        Innnerstin.  Thanks.  I'd wondered about that for a while, but never bothered to do wheels on a few draws and watch the results.

        Gracias,

            I absolutely love my platinum membership. I only got a 1 month subscription to begin with to see if it was something that I wanted to continue. I will be continuing my membership. It is awesome. Some of the features I like: the statistics, the search results, the abreviated wheels, and the deflate 3. I think once I figure out how to actually use the inspector 3 I will probably fall in love with that too. My favorite feature on the whole site, believe it or not, is the full wheels.

            The full wheels are available to everyone but the thing that I love about the platinum membership is that I can plug in all kinds of filters and bring the 16 number wheel (pick 5) down from over 4000 combinations to 340 combinations. Now I would not play that many combinations but I can pick and choose from those combinations which I like the best and I know that all of them fit the statistical profile for the particular game I am playing. This, to me, is powerful!

            My husband and I are moving to Alaska soon. He's leaving at the end of this month and I am going up at the end of September. Guess I had better win my Fantasy 5 soon because Alaska doesn't have a lottery (and will probably never get one), but I intend to save the money I would have spent on the lottery each week and run into Washington state about twice a year. At those times I my very well end up spending $300 on one shot. So I still intend to watch the numbers and use the statistics and other features. I want to make double sure that since my lottery playing is going to be curtailed in such a manner that the once or twice a year I do play, I am playing the best possible combinations.

            There is only one feature not available that I wish was. I would love it incredibly if a 20 number full wheel was added but I have no idea whatsoever how huge that would end up being. And in the grand scheme of things it is not that big of a deal. -Bonnie

            I wanted to add, too, that Todd is awesome. I have yet to PM him with a problem that I did not get a timely response back. That is totally appreciated. This is the first website that I have ever in my  12 years on the internet paid for and it is totally worth it.

                Bonnie,

                Thanks so much for the great compliment, it means a lot!

                About a month ago I was doing some research on inceasing the numbers in the full wheels, and was even looking at creating an unrestricted full wheel.  Of course, I need to somehow limit the number of combinations that can be generated, because allowing a wheel to be created t hat generates millions of lines would bring the server to its knees.

                My idea is to allow you to create a wheel with any size set of numbers, but only generate the first few thousand rows, and then it would stop.  By doing that, you could create a wheel based on (for example) all 49 numbers in a 6/49 game, and apply very restrictive filters to reduce almost all of the combinations.  If your filters were well-designed, then you would create a wheel smaller than the limit, so it would not be an issue.

                I think a tool like that has a great deal of usefulness, what do you think?

                  I kid you not, those of you who are not using the full wheel with the filters are totally missing out on something incredible. Just my humble opinion. -Bonnie

                      Just6ntlc,

                      I'm just curious: do you buy any lottery products?  If so, what kind of lottery products, and how much do they cost?  Of course, if you feel this is too personal, there is no need to answer.

                          sorry boss.

                        no need for the platinum membership when i only play a $1 quick pick every draw.    but ......i sure do appreciate you and this site...

                        now that i got the news about california being a state where you can't claim the "jack" thru an anonymous trust,  maybe  i  might  make it up to you by wearing a lottery post t-shirt to my press conference.  that is if i can find one that fits over my clown disguise that i plan to wear.

                        V-YIKES-DUDE

                                    "i am .........."meant to"       

                        P.S.,  that RJoH  is a stand up guy.  thanks,  vision

                                 until further notice,  it's  france everyday

                            Bonnie,

                            Alaska is a beautifull state and I place I hope to get to go visit again before I die. Also, Alaska is one of the wealthiest states around with a reverse income tax. You are too late this year to qualify, but if you get there around the first part of the year next year, I think you may qualify as a resident. Last I heard, it's well over $2,400 per living person (man, woman & child) that is paid out. You may not have to worry about saving up what you use to spend for Lottery.

                            Hope you have a safe transfer and all goes well.

                            Sir Metro

                              Actually, the reason that I am leaving at the end of September is because in order to qualify you have to have lived there for 24 months and their calendar year goes from October to October. Made double sure of this when making my plans of when to get there. This year the fund amount per person is about 4k. My hubby, kids and I will be eligible in 2007. But you still have to apply the two years that you don't get it. A friend of my hubby's who lives up there has been giving us all the scoop.

                              Got some good news today. The transfer that my hubby applied for is still open. It will be so very awesome for him to be able to remain with the company he currently works for. No pay gaps, no health coverage gaps, etc, etc, etc... -Bonnie
