so this mega millions assistant just displays combinations...what information is it based on right now...luck of the draw =P

heh, its pure random ( well as random as you can get from a computer )
thats not the point of it.. i never said i'm using some insane statistical forumla to generate numbers..
I think more attention should be paid to the other functions that the little program has.
however from what everyone here keeps bringing up, i guess i really should concentrate on number creation based on different things.. i've already started it.. i think version 2.0 will have that in..

right now its on version 1.3,  i allready made two updates today..  one to change it from 1-52, 1-52  to  1-56, 1-46  and also i had to  rewrite some other code because MegaMillions.com decided to change the words "Mega Ball"  to Money Ball ..  that extra letter in money compared to mega  really screwed things up for a while..
its all ok now tho in version 1.3

The RNG that you are proposing is similar to the one that I wrote for my personal use.  It can pick combinations for any pick5 or pick6 game with or without a bonus ball.  It has the option of loading up to 1500 previous drawings of any game, analyzing them and picking parameters based on those drawings. Now when I load the draw history of MegaMillions the program sees a pick5 game that has 52 core numbers and 52 bonus numbers and I have to manually put in the parameters 5/56+1/46.  That problem will correct itself when I have 50 or so drawings under the new format and eliminate the older 324 drawings of MegaMillions1.  The same problem existed when MegaMillions1 evolved from the old BigGame lottery until I eliminated the 724 drawings of the older lottery. Since it has the drawing history of the game that it's picking combinations for, it can calculate data such as gap sizes, sums and ranges of the combinations, number positions, most popular bonus numbers, average repeat cycle of numbers and etc. to make its picks.  That data is presented to me for approval or change before the RNG start picking combinations.  It can also check each picks against the game history or the group of its picks for matches and present that information to me before I accept or reject them or I have the options of putting it on automatic and it will accept picks based on a set of preset conditions until it has picked up to 500 combinations.  I use it for all the games I play, MegaMillions, PowerBall, Ohio SuperLottoPlus and Ohio Rolling Cash5.  With a little work you may produce a RNG that will covers more than one jackpot game and someone will pay money for.  Good luck to you.

        Pick-4,

        My overall success rate is nothing to brag about, it's about the same as my prediction statistics because my predictions are some of the numbers I actually play.

          allright,  thanks to the help of the people who helped I believe that I have worked out most of the bugs.
          If anyone likes what they tried they are now welcome to buy it.
          Future updates are free and I'm going to keep adding little things every couple of weeks.
          Version 1.4 is up now and is fully functional :)
          ::goes to figure out a good scheme on using patterns to generate not so random numbers::

              vbmx,

              I posted the first 10 picks of my RNG on the prediction board yesterday, 06/24/05 and matched 2+1 for $10 to break even.  Admittedly my RNG had an edge using the old MegaMillions drawing file as a guide, but if I was going to pay money for another RNG I would expect it to do better.  I'll recheck your site when you've added some features to your RNG.  Good luck.

                      vbmx, just in case you don't see it in the jackpot forum. Line 5 of the set of numbers which you posted was the winning combination for last nights megamillions. Did you obtain those numbers from this program? -Bonnie

                        sadly, all i won was 10 bucks,
                        i was having fun with you guys in the other post.    :-)
                        my program made me 9 bucks this time, but i think so far from all the numbers that i've played using it, i've broken even, so i'm not sure if it works any better than any other system out there.
                        i'll be buying 9 tickets for this friday night tho :)
                        goood luck!

                          I have all the numbers from the first three versions of Mega Millions on a computer and disk. The last draw of 6/28/05 or 2-20-37-43-46 and the Mega Number 4 is valid for me to convert to California SLP.

                            can you rephrase that, for some reason im' not sure what you mean by that last sentence.  its probably just me :)
