Hi everybody,

Does anybody know about a freeware (or Excel sheet) that allows checking of a series of tickets (loaded if possible from a tab separated or text file) against the previous draws in a lottery? I think I read a while ago a posting about some lexicographic id generator that did also some kind of function like above but not sure 100%. I have a set of tickets that I would like to check against the previous draws to eliminate the ones that have previously generated 3, 4 or 5 winners.  Many lottery software are full of features of generating predictions but I found often that some of the tickets are triplets or 4-plets from the last 5 or 10 draws (and repeating chances are always poor acording to all lotto rules).

 

Thanks

    It's not freeware, but Lottery Post's results search engine, available with Platinum memberships, is perhaps the best results search engine available, and it works for almost every game in the USA, Canada, and UK.

      Sorry, my mistake, it's not tickets I was refering to (that actually someboby has already bought) but prediction sets (that are obtained by running most of the softwares).

        Almost any lottery software that will allow you to load a text file will probably do that, the problem is if someone took the time to code it, it probably not free.  Most lottery website have that feature, but the numbers have to be checked one set at a time.
