I have a couple of lottery programs that I've been using for a couple of year to generating hot/cold numbers, etc. for the Virginia pick 4 and cach 5 games.  All of these lottery games operate twice a day and the software generates a separate analysis for the two sets of jackpot histories for the two games, one each for the day and night drawings.  I would've thought that these games would be using the same facilities, including the balls, to makes the twice-daily drawings.  Wouldn't it make more sense for the software to merge the histories of the two drawings for each game in order to produce the information?

    Everyone will probably have a different opinion on this.  I believe that they should merge them.

    Depending on what programs you are using, and how they operate, time can be a very important aspect.

    You might consider opening both databases together in Excel and writing a spreadsheet program to merge them.

    It isnt easy but it can be done.  Then you could compare and see if it makes a difference.

      The software Versabet34 allows you to merge the program files for mid day and evening. It is just for Pick 3 and Pick 4 however, not the jackpot (cash 5) type games.  I personally don't like merging files like that, but if you think you are interested, do a search on Versabet and check it out.

        I think you can merge the two spreadsheets into one, and then sort on the date column.  I think you have to be certain to open up the Day history first, and then import or append the Night history to the end of the spreadsheet before doing the sort.  I'll look at Versabet, thanks.

          I have noticed that it varies between the day of the week as to which game set to use. I have observed at various times, that overall, the draws balance between each individual game and from the combined game set. So, from that, I personally, think it is best to use all three. Because typically, my odds of winning goes up when I see the same number set in all 3 of my sort set-up (midday, Evening and combined).
